LOS ANGELES, May 31, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Live.me, the dominant live streaming app making waves with content creators and their fans, today announced it reached the top chart positions last week on both Apple's App Store and Google Play.
Over the Memorial Day weekend, Live.me attracted the talents of Amanda Cerny and Anthony Quintal (aka Lohanthony), two internet megastars with a combined social reach of 20 million fans. Their presence on the rapidly growing platform did not go unnoticed, as viewers tuned in to connect with the stars in real-time.
Cerny, most popular on Vine and Snapchat, launched her #CernyChallenge, introducing viewers to her incredible workout routine. Meanwhile, Quintal, aka Lohanthony, who boasts 1.5 million subscribers on YouTube, took to the platform for a more traditional Q&A with his fans.
Cerny and Quintal are just the latest celebrities to appear on the rapidly growing app. Earlier in May, YouTube Prankster, Roman Atwood also introduced his Live.me channel to his 9 million YouTube subscribers, inviting them to join him on a recent trip to China as he toured the Great Wall and Forbidden City.
One of Live.me's key product benefits is the ability for any broadcaster to earn virtual gifts from their viewers which can then be redeemed for cash or rewards. As viewers give gifts, they climb the rankings to become top fans for each broadcaster.
"We set out to develop an app that focuses on the two things creators and fans care about the most--self-expression and meaningful connections," said Head of Influencer Marketing & Partnerships for Cheetah Mobile, Khudor Annous. "The response from the creator community and their fans has been amazing and we're looking forward to rolling out new features in the coming weeks."
Live.me is currently available on iPhone and Android in the U.S., U.K., Canada, and other select countries.
Live.me is a leading live broadcasting app designed to serve as the go-to destination for a new wave of mobile content creators. The app has become a home for creators of all formats and interests to create their own community outside of other social media platforms, while earning virtual goods that can be exchanged for prizes, rewards, and cash. Live.me also produces content for the community, acting as a tastemaker for today's consumers through regularly scheduled programming. Whether the moments are extraordinary or ordinary, Live.me helps people connect and become part of a larger story together.
