Not exactly quick on the heels of the NicoDou iPhone app, we now have the ニコ生放送 (Nico Namahousou, “Nico Live Broadcast”) app!
Yes, you can watch NicoNama while on the go. Yes, you can broadcast while on the go (I was able to do it on my old 2G, though it crashed halfway through. Check it out!). But no cruise. You can also just look for current iPhone broadcasts here.
While it is free, you have to have a Japanese iTunes account, but remember, you don’t need a credit card to make one.

So while most of the world gets nothing but dudes in stormtrooper masks masturbating on Chatroulette, Japan has ニコ生クルーズ (NicoNama Cruise). It literally is NicoLive on random (or at least apparent random). And for that short time that the cruise arrives at a broadcast, all the comments from the cruise go to the actual broadcast.
I’ve been obsessed with NicoNama Cruise the last few days just cause of the wonderful randomness you get out of it. You don’t always have to understand Japanese, but it helps. And if there is a broadcast you like, you can visit that one with the button at the end that says 「この放送を見に行く」.
Sure, it isn’t quite as personal as chatroulette, but I will tell you now, there is a lot less male genitalia. Also, a cute Japanese girl comes up every once in a while. So give it a try!
