Editors' Notes

Periscope offers live broadcasts with a twist—the ability to replay them at any time. Every video comes to life with a league of integrated social features: while watching streams, you’ll also see people join, leave hearts, comment in real time, and more. The app makes it super-simple to set your privacy settings too, so you’ll always know who you’re broadcasting to—whether it’s a small group of friends or the whole world.

If Periscope didn't exist, I'd create it myself


I became one of early adopters of Periscope, being an active twitter user on iOS & macOS. I watched it evolve, from the early stage of pioneer enthusiasts to increasingly more mature and diverse audience. Periscope was steadily becoming on of the top apps admired by all ages and interests groups. Support of GoPro, sketching, 360, saving broadcasts, and its ability to use web browsers and, notably, the Producer on notebooks and desktops, as well as its full integration to Twitter - these all were important stages in the Periscope progression to success. Ramifications of introducing groups, super fans, VIPs, with hopefully a forthcoming monetisation capability, would make it ultimately most competitive among other streaming platforms such as FB live and Twitch. Therefore, I highly recommend Periscope, and especially this app for iOS.

Good but needs work


The location indicators are sometimes way off. They always show broadcasts that are already over so when you click one it just disappears. Can't access past broadcasts by people you're following. Should have national lists of broadcasters so you can follow local people. Has great potential.

Edit - The app is actually quite bad. There is no sound on any of the past broadcasts (which can only be accessed randomly from the home page of the app....). There is also a huge problem with the global map showing lots of broadcasts that are live but you'll find when you click them that most have been over for ten or twenty minutes. I'm resigned to deleting until it is improved drastically.
