Infinite Game Stream is a straightforward Windows Phone 8 client app for Twitch.tv. What is Twitch.tv you ask? Twitch is a leading video platform and community for gamers. Twitch.tv provides content on gaming strategy, development and industry news.
Infinite Game Stream brings all the goodness of Twitch to your Windows Phone 8 device with the ability to stream videos and join chat rooms on your favorite video games. Infinite Game Stream is a nicely laid out app but a few performance bugs holds this app back.
Infinite Game Stream's Main Pages
The main pages for Infinite Game Stream include:
- Game Page that sorts content by gaming title
- Streams Page that appears to list the most current content
- Twitter feed page for @TwitchTV
- Settings Page
You do need to register at Twitch to make the most of Infinite Game Stream. It is best to register through Twitch’s website because the account set-up within Infinite Game Stream asks for a correct phrase in the Captcha fields (verification) but fails to display the Captcha fields.
Once registered and logged in through Infinite Game Stream you can stream videos on the latest games, view podcasts, and chat with other gamers. Video streams with chat rooms can be maximized to full screen if you don’t care too much about the chatter going on.
Infinite Game Stream Streaming Content
I did experience a few issues in using Infinite Game Stream. While streaming content loaded promptly from the Streams Page, I could not get content from the Game Page to load. I am not sure if it is an issue of Twitch.tv blocking the content or a bug in the app. Then there is the issue preventing you from creating a Twitch account from within the app. While you can work around the latter, the inability to pull up content from the Game Page is rather frustrating.
Infinite Game Stream is not an app that will appeal to everyone. For those who frequent Twitch.tv, I can see the app coming in handy but until the bugs can be ironed out many will find the app more on the frustrating side. Hopefully the issues can be resolved with a simple app update.
Infinite Game Stream is a free app that is available for Windows Phone 8 devices. You can find Infinite Game Stream here in the Windows Phone Store.
