We have released an Android app for our Live Storm Chasing service. This app provides a user friendly way to watch live chaser streams on your Android device. Previously our mobile website did not include a status of whether the chaser was disconnected or streaming, which can create confusion when a stream is disconnected. Since all the streams depend on sometimes unreliable wireless connections to publish them to our servers, they do go offline from time to time. With the Android app you’ll be able to see when a stream disconnects and simply switch over to another chaser who has good wireless data at the moment.
The app does not currently have push notifications (Google Cloud Messaging) so you’ll need to follow us on Twitter to know when storm chasers are active. We also plan on adding that feature soon.
As always keep in mind that if you hear no audio it means that chaser has chosen not to stream with audio. Also note that storm chases do not happen all the time so if you see no one in the app it means no one is streaming.
