Hello fellow Androidians,

It’s time to shift into a different mode. This’ll be the first streaming internet channel app for Android that i’ll review, but there will be more reviews coming in the next few weeks. Stay tuned!

The lucky Android app today is Veetle Lite.

We’ll break it down into three parts :

1) What does it do?

2) How much does it cost?

3) Conclusion?

Part 1  : What does it do?

Veetle is a flash stream on the internet. People broadcast content of their choice on the Veetle platform. It works like Ustream,Justin.tv, and others. Veetle streams usually do not require a super fast connection to work, and they support HD video broadcasting. In the screenshots you’ll see some of the available channels to watch on your smartphone or tablet.

The application Veetle Lite basically lets you watch internet streams. For people commuting every day, people who are waiting somewhere, or just if you’re at work but there isn’t much going on, this app is for you. Watch The Simpsons, Friends, Two and a Half Men, Movies, etc on your device when you want! (And when the channel(s) is/are broadcasting)

Veetle Lite for the Android platform does not require a fast connection. I’ve tested it on my HTC Desire on 3G, HSDPA & Edge, and all three network speeds work quite well.Wifi is also a possiblity of course, depending on your location. The app also allows to change the aspect ratio of the channel so you can watch full screen, in 4:3 format, 16:9 format, etc. Most broadcasts will be in English, sometimes even with subtitles.

As promised, here are some screenshots :

Part 2 : What does it cost?

This is the best part about this Android application, it’s completely free of charge.

Give it a try and see if it works for you. It saved me quite a few boring hours during commutes, while waiting for someone, or when i was just slightly bored.

Veetle Lite for Android can be found here : Download from the Android Market
Part 3 : Conclusion ?

Is it REQUIRED to use this?

There is no real required situation to use this, but it can often save you time you’ld spend bored otherwise. I find it amusing & relaxing to watch The Simpsons while on the bus, or whenever i have the chance to..

Will you benefit from it? 

Possibly, depending on the situation. People do tend to spend quite some time doing nothing , or partially nothing. This application could fill up those voids with entertainment.

NOTE : This is a battery drainer. Basically you lose about 1% of battery per minute and a half watched on Veetle (for non HD streams). If you use this, make sure your battery is at least 50% charged , or it will be depleted rapidly..

Personal rating : 8/10
