Meerkat for Android connects to your Twitter account to serve up a list of who is streaming live video.

The interface is pretty identical to that of its iOS counterpart, requiring you to log in with Twitter then displaying an assortment of friends other trending users who are live-broadcasting themselves.

The story behind the story: Meerkat was a breakout hit at SXS/a>. However, its biggest challenge is that its prime competitor comes from the platform it relies upon: Twitter. Today’s hit viral app can be tomorrow’s goner, as evidenced by the recent shutdown of Secret. This makes getting a larger user base on Android, finding a way to make money, all the more critical for Meerkat.
