The latest hot app, Meerkat, which allows you to quickly stream live video to your Twitter followers has landed on Android… kind of.

Meerkat for Android is an “unofficial” client built by the team at Meerkat over a single weekend so Android users aren’t missing out.

The only thing you can do in Meerkat’s unofficial app is watch streams right now, but it’s good news that the company isn’t leaving Android users in the cold until a full app is ready.
