And version 1.1 offers a more stable experience that fixesa number of bugs related to audio/video sync rotation issues, and crashes.
The update also fixes one of my pet peeves while using the app. Users can now opt-out of their video comments being posted to Twitter as @replies.
Along with better search capability, the app also showcases recommended people to follow in the Search function.
Heres a list of other improvements:
- Follow new users from inside the stream. – In app notifications when multiple people you follow begin streaming. – Ability retweet scheduled streams from the app. – Now you can discover new streams based on what your friends like, retweet and subscribe to. – Share your profile to Twitter from the feed. Let others easily follow you.
Itll definitely be interesting to see which of these two apps is able to find traction with users in the near future. Periscopes deeper integration with Twitter and replay functionality is nice, but I think Meerkat also has a great chance of changing the landscape as well. No matter, expect a lot more live video feeds to appear on your Twitter feed.
