LOCUSCAST for ANDROID




After downloading locustream app navigate to your downloads folder and click the locuscast.apk to install.

Be sure that 'Unknown sources' is enabled in security settings.

Once the app is installed you simply need to enter your locus soundmap identity and password (see below : First: Open a Locustream Account), enable location functions (GPS) and you can start streaming.

You will obtain better results by using an external microphone. We have tested the iRig microphone pre-amp (http://www.ikmultimedia.com/products/irigpre/) which provides phantom power via a 9v battery and enables the connection of any type of mike with an XLR connector.

Once you have installed the app you simply enter your locustream map login and pass and you can start steaming. If you enable GPS, your stream location will be updated automatically on the map. You are strongly encouraged to stream from a remote location (as long as you have 3G or WiFi coverage). Please be sure that you only connect to your account with one device at a time.
