Live broadcast app Periscope now available on Android

Months after it initially launched, on the iOS app obviously, the live broadcast app Periscope has now finally arrived on Android. Unlike their comeptitor Meerkat, which came to this platform stage by stage from testing to beta to full, they have released the fully functional (hopefully) version their first time around.

Meerkat is now officially out of beta for Android

We still haven't heard a peep from Twitter's Periscope since they said they're working on it (that was last month), but its arch rival Meerkat is several steps ahead of them in the Android market.
