Periscope is the official app from Twitter to stream using just your Twitter account and an Android. The app works almost exactly like Meerkat, the first app to let you record and broadcast live streams on Twitter.
After a year in the making and several months of anticipation, Twitter’s Meerkat rival has finally been born: welcome to the live-streaming stage Periscope, the sleekest and most attractive live broadcasting app yet to be seen.
Periscope is smooth and easy to use, and boasts loads of great features that pit it well ahead of any of its rivals. Importantly, it also has access to the Twitter Social Graphs, so finding and following your twitter friends on Periscope is super easy.
The variety of the content on offer is fantastic, and you have the option of replaying old broadcasts: something which Meerkat doesn’t support.
It’s been a long time coming, and Periscope has entered the game late: but it was definitely worth the wait.
Besides broadcasting, Periscope also lets you quickly access what other people are streaming. You can see the most popular streams and quickly join them, as well as write comments when you join a broadcast or give hearts to show you like the stream.
Broadcasting with Periscope is as easy as pressing a button. As soon as you press the record button, you start broadcasting, and with just a touch of the screen you can switch between the front and back camera. If someone takes a screenshot of what you’re broadcasting, you’ll see a tiny flash that notifies you.
In the app’s settings you can choose when to receive notifications: when your followers start broadcasting, for instance, or when someone new starts following you.
Periscope is a powerful and lightweight official live streaming app from Twitter. With it, you can broadcast online using just your Twitter account. Finally, its interface is elegant, intuitive, and pretty.
