Live.me, available for iPhone and iPad through the Apple iTunes App Store and for Android through the Google Play store, is a popular app for a fast growing service that allows users to broadcast streams of video and music.
With thousands of users already on board, the social platform looks poised for takeoff, and comes ram-packed with features that broadcasters and followers can easily take advantage of, with a particularly great way for users to send money and gifts to the performers and streamers.
Finding streams is incredibly easy, as the app uses trends, hashtags and search functions to get you to the content you want, and following someone who takes your interest is a simple tap of a button.
Here, straight from the developer, are the app’s best features:
Live Streaming + Chat
✪ Stream whenever and wherever you want to with one touch.
✪ Live chat lets you comment and talk during the stream live.
✪ Send hearts to encourage your favorite broadcast and show you care.

✪ Live stream can be shared with friends from Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat and more.
✪ Meet new people with the same interests, hobbies and personalities.
✪ Add followers and share all your spontaneous moments.
Gifts + Money Rewards

✪ Gifts turn into diamonds and can be redeemed for real money!
Stickers + Fashion
✪ Funny stickers stay on your face while broadcasting.

The app is very well designed, and features a modern look and interface that complements the forward thinking nature of the services it provides. With features that go above and beyond what many mainstream services are offering, fans of this new kind of video streaming and viewing will absolutely lap this up, especially when they get to play around with some of the live filters.
I like the way that the gifts viewers can send to broadcasters are designed to grab thier attention as much as is possible. This means that the broadcaster will have more chances to interact directly with their fans and audience, resulting in a better environment for everyone.
Overall, Live.me is a great service and app, and is one of the very best in this new genre. It offers more than its competitors, features unique rewards for broadcasters and is designed to build communities for followers so it is well worth a try.
