Justin.TV is a social networking app. that allows you to watch live video from all over the world, chat with people, and make your own videos. It seems that people make videos for all different reasons- whether it’s to vlog to their friends, endorse a product, or to give visibility to a cause they are passionate about. Or, of course, the most common one that I saw- girls in need of attention (check out “Miss.Mariana.Lee”- she was a popular one). There are also actual channels to watch like pokerstarstv, mudtrucktv, etc. I also noticed a large number of live feed channels- the Justin.tv office for one, but also a live feed of a ferret nesting, of the African wilderness, and of a random 40-something single male called franktaylorslifecast. With such variety, there will probably always be something on Justin.tv that you’ll want to watch.
The app. itself has 5 different sections- Featured, Favorites, Search, About, and More. The Featured section is where I found all of the above named videos/channels. The Favorites section is to keep track of your fav channels, the Search section is to find something specific you’re looking for, the About section gives a quick blurb on Justin.tv’s concept, and the More section allows you to sign in/out of Justin.tv, allows you to change the language that your channels appear in, has a link to the Justin.tv blog and also to its Twitter page.
Yet nowhere is there a channel guide or list of channel selections! So the only way to find anything is to see it on your Featured page or search for something specific and hope you can find it. Also, the featured page is limited- after I pressed “Show More” at the bottom of the screen 4 or 5 times, the option to show more was gone. Does that there are only that many videos streaming at that time? Or that I can only see a certain number of them? Or are the “featured” videos capped off at some point? In general, I just don’t understand the way that the whole app. is organized. I feel like I would definitely use it more if I could easily find and access the type(s) of material that I’m interested in through a category and/or channel guide page.
This app. is FREE, though- and it allows you to get a glimpse into the weird lives and interests of other people while you’re on the go. If you enjoy judging people and expressing your judgment in a chat setting, you will love Justin.tv. Happy watching! Say hi to Miss.Mariana.Lee for me.
