I have a new phone now but I still see the horrible connection problems it seems to give. It'll freeze and be re connecting over and over and over and over and over and.... until I just close the app completely and try again another time. Sometimes I get lucky and it'll play longer than it'll freeze and that's what I be hoping for when I get on periscope. Unfortunately I deal with the freezing far too much to actually like the app. Oh and its just this app that have the connecting problems, no other.
Periscope, great app to share love video Seem to be having lots of updates! What would be nice is some method of controlling new followers. Occasionally I get trolls, just as you do with Twitter, but there you can lock your acc
Battery Hog Though it is a fun social media app, the developer should attempt to minimize the drain this app puts on one's phone!! (To date the developer has not made this a priority.) Not only does Periscope drain one's battery faster than a rocket shooting high. It causes one's phone to become very hot. The size of the app itself is huge. UPDATE 8/26: App freezes as many here have pointed out, is anyone on Periscope's staff reading these reviews to correct and issue a stable update?!?!
Fun and useful, but some issues. I like this app, but it is buggy on Android 6.0.1 with occasionally comments disappearing and freezes. I want to see more viewer control like 1) positioning chat, 2) muting commenters, 3) muting chat while letting me comment, 4) a less hidden user interface. If there is a manual I'm not aware. I'm only commenting as a viewer, I have no idea what it looks like if I ever broadcast. Overall, a great new addition to the social platform. Try it, and start becoming "friends" with influencers great and small.
Freezes a lot Been freezing a lot since last update. Will only broadcast no more than 10 secs then freeze. Have to re-enter just for it to freeze again.
