Justin.tv has a new Android app for broadcasting live video. This competes with services like UStream and Qik. Unfortunately, it doesn’t let you simply watch Justin.tv content like the iPhone app does. Perhaps that will come later. This is the first Android app Justin.tv has offered.

"We’ve been focused on mobile applications since the beginning of this year, starting with the launch of Justin.tv for iPhone," says Caleb at Justin.tv. "We think the mobile space is the biggest opportunity in live video, and that being tethered to a computer has held a lot of people back. Today we’re solving that problem for Android phone owners."

"We use efficient hardware encoding to create high quality video while maximizing battery life," says Caleb. "We optimize the video for 3G or WiFi and constantly adjust quality as you move around to keep the video smooth. The results are crystal clear when compared with any other apps available, Justin.tv’s video is best because that’s what you’ve told us you care about."

The app comes with the ability to share broadcasts via Facebook or Twitter. There is even an autoshare option.
