Rating: Just another cruddy attempt to get the Bambuser app mentioned
It took us a little while to figure out what was behind this particular publicity stunt, then we realised the aim was to promote the existence of a really neat mobile broadcasting app. The event will be known as the ‘Bambuser Challenge‘ and will kick off in Central London at noon on Friday September 9th  and finish 24 hours later. What it involves is Bambuser‘s executive chairman, Hans Eriksson, coming over from Stockholm and trotting around the parts of London that most tourists don’t see. All the time broadcasting using a mobile phone and communicating with his audience. GoMo News tried to find out which mobile phone he intends to use as we can’t imagine anything exists with a battery life that long. He’s obviously going to have to switch handsets. Frequently.So the company is appealing for Londoners to help Eriksson discover the parts of London that others miss. Sadly, there’s not that many cheerful Cockeys left to help him find his way that easily!
The Bambuser app works on over 320 smartphone models os it’s no surprise to find it will work on Nokias as well as Android and iOS devices. Download it from here.
The company claims the service also works with most web/DV-cams and boasts an average delay time of only 1.5 second.
Bambuser is a free, simple-to-use live video service that allows users to broadcast live video directly ont their own blogs or favourite social networks.
GoMo News tried it out and in no time had managed to post a ‘broadcast’ onto Facebook. For broadcast, of course, you can read video clip.
Quite frankly we were astonished at how easy Bambuser was to set up and get posting. Completely opposite to a far more famous product which we never fully understood.
Unlike its rival, you won’t need to go delving into online manuals to use Bambuser.
