>>Welcome to Tap That App, I'm Brian Tong and this is the show we cover the hottest apps in the mobile space. Now, this week we're showing off apps that enable you to stream live video from your phone and then to your friends anywhere you are. Now, there are really three mobile apps to pay attention to; the first one is Quick Live, it's free and it's available on almost all platforms but limited to specific phones when it comes to BlackBerries, Symbian phones and Windows mobile phones and there is no Palm Pre support. In fact, Palm's WebOS has no live video streaming solution at all. With a Quick app you'll need to create an account, press record and you're streaming live to the web with an easy to remember link. Now, this is streaming video but the app probably has the best audio and video quality overall. People logged onto the site can interact with a live chat and you'll also be able to share your videos and announce them to the world on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube. Now, the next app is UStream Broadcaster. It's also free but only available on the iPhone and Android platforms for streaming live video. This also requires an account setup but press the go live button and your stream is up. The unique feature here is the ability to ask a question on your stream and have a live poll where viewers can respond and you'll see what they think and like Quick, people can also interact with a live chat that appears on your phone's screen too and you can also share your video with Facebook, Twitter and YouTube friends. The third app is Knocking Live Video. It's free but it only runs on iPhones and Android phones and it's a little different because you need to sign up and your friends need to sign up for you to both use the service. To watch your stream invite a friend that has to be in the app, sure it makes it more private but then there's no audio on the stream and it's only done through phones. It's also linked to Facebook and Twitter to let people know when you're using it but it's really a private way to stream video. So, what do I think about these apps? Well, Quick is the most universal of the group and has the best video quality so I'm giving that a good tap. UStream Broadcaster's unique polling feature on top of its ability to match all the features that Quick has like realtime chat and video uploading make it tap worthy but Knocking Live Video is only on two platforms. It's a pain to setup. Friends need to be in the app and there's no audio...no, thanks. Alright, that's it for this week's show. If you guys have any questions, send them to TapThatApp@CNET.com. I'm Brian Tong and we'll see you next week.
