App of the Week: Periscope

Imagine seeing the world from a different perspective?  Imagine being able to connect with people from around the world, seeing and hearing new things, all from a mobile device.

Periscope is the app that can connect users from all over the world, instantly.  Periscope is FREE and is available on both the iTunes App Store and the Google Play store.

Periscope was designed by Twitter, so it’s easy to use for anyone who already has a Twitter account.  It allows users to follow the same people they follow on Twitter, and will send you a push notification when one of your connections goes ‘live’ on Periscope.  Once a ‘broadcast’ has ended, it be replayed for up to 24 hours after the event was live.  Periscope allows users to host private broadcasts as well (attendees must be followers and invited to join), and any link to a ‘live’ broadcast is easily tweeted out with click of a button.  From a mobile device, you can touch your screen when in a broadcast to let the host know how much you like it.  Broadcasts can be ranked based on the amount of hearts it receives, known as the “most loved” list.

Share an experience, whether it is educational, personal, or professional, with the Periscope app.  Others can join in to listen and watch, and share in the experience.

Users may also connect through their computer, but will be unable to connect with the conversation or hearts features of the mobile Periscope app.

Show the world YOUR perspective and watch from others, and start using the Periscope app now!
