I don't know if anyone of you have heard about this, but I haven't had it all that long, and I must tell you that it is a nice app. It works on iPhones, and androd. I have broadcast only a few times, as I am not brave enough to show my face, but I did show it once. Most of the time, I will broadcast, the sermon at church or I will walk my dogs and show them on the broadcast. It is an app that is tied to twitter, and I like the fact, that if someone misses a broadcast, they can still see if for 24 hours, and can still give hearts to the broacaster. It is a great app, and it is a great tool for business people, ones who crochet or whatever they do. I am really enjoying watching others broadcast, even when I don't want to, or I don't have anything to say.

It really is. I have broadcasts some, but not all that many. Some do broadcasts everyday, and I basically only do mine once a week, so far. It has taken me awhile to come out of my shell, but now that I have put my face on there, it will be easier the next time.

@rosekiss ...So you just do a video on your cell phone and then send it out to all your friends. That is 'broadcasting' right?

@celticeagle It is a live broadcast, where my followers can see it as I am broadcasting. I can see who comes in to watch it. They will comment to me, where I can see them, and I can respond back. If the like the broadcast, then, they can leave hearts as well. I have close to 2000 hearts already in just a few broadcasts. It is lots of fun, even though I watch other broadcasts, instead of doing one myself. The app is associated with Twitter, so my followers there can see it, as well as the followers I have on periscope. It stays on periscope for 24 hours, so those that missed it can watch the replay, and also give hearts. They can't comment on the replay, though. I am really enjoying it so far.

I am not on Twitter. Does that make a difference? I do use FaceTime and love it.

From what my daughter tokd me, you don't have to be on twitter, as you have to make an account so you can choose your own username and password, and hope you get followers. I have over 100 right now, but there are those that have thousands of them.

@DianneN I don't use periscope to boradcast, except maybe once a week, as I like to broadcast the chruch sermons. Other than that, I don't do much. I have broadcast, walking my dogs, and a few others, but normally, I can't think of anythiung to broadcast most days.

Sounds interesting. Since I can't do apps, it doesn't apply to me. I'm glad you're enjoying it.

It is a lot of fun. I haven't done that many broadcasts myself, but there are others that do them every day. I usually periscope the church sermon every wekk. I don't get all that many watching, but it only takes one to accept Jesus, and when that happens, it will snowball. I am going to keep doing it for as long as I can.

@just4him There are some that will reaqd the bible on periscope, ther is one that lives in London, and shows the different sights around London. There was one that was in Orlando, and periscoped things at Disneyworld. They were great as it really looked like I was there, and I felt there too.

I do not use apps, but I am sure that this can be useful. I cannot understand the name "periscope".

I don't know how it got its name either, but it is a great app, and I am enjoying it. I have done several broadcasts already. Most of them are church related, but I have done three that weren't. I will be doing more broadcasts, as I am finally coming out of my shell and not being so shy.

It seems a rather odd name to give such an app.

You are right, and I don't know how they chose that name either. It is an app associated with twitter, and who knows how they came up with the name periscope. I didn't know what to think of it at first, but as time has gone on, it became one that I am enjoying. I do more watching of others periscoping though, than I do my own. It has taken me awhile to get up the nerve to do it.

I'm sure once you start it's difficult to stop and you can lose much time.

There are some that brouadcst several times a day, so yes, they start, and just can't stop. I love broadcasting the church sermons, even though my arms get very tired holding the phone up. I guess I will have to get a tripod to hold it up, as it is very hard on my arms.
