Nom Live (Version 2.1.4)

Synopsis of the App
Think of Nom Live as a mash-up of Periscope, Instagram and YouTube. This food-focused live video network was designed for cooks, chefs and foodies to host their own cooking shows or tune in to watch others onscreen. Though the video image quality could be better, Nom Live's interactive features provide a unique opportunity to share content and engage with viewers. From a computer, tablet or smartphone, users can easily schedule upcoming shows, gain subscribers and build their online audience. 

Platform and Price
Free: Apple only.
