    Periscope lets you broadcast and explore the world through live video.
    See where news is breaking, visit a new place, or meet people and share interests - all in real-time.

    Use Periscope to:
    • Broadcast live video and interact with people through hearts and comments.
    • Discover popular live video streams from around the world or search for broadcasts by location or topic.
    • Missed out on a live video? Don't worry - watch the best parts with replay highlights.
    • Instantly share your live videos to Twitter and other social networks.
    • Broadcast privately to specific followers or friends.

    This is one of those super-hot ideas that threatens to upend an entire industry. It remains to be seen whether 2016 will see all news reports delivered via live Periscope broadcast, but either way, this app has made waves.

    It's a little like Snapchat, but for live video: you start a broadcast, which any of your followers can view as it happens, and the video remains viewable for 24 hours after you finish - and then is erased from existence. Thrillingly immediate, utterly nerve-wracking for journalists who used to have the best part of a month between filing an article and seeing it on the shelves, and lots of fun to try out.
