DIY broadcasters of Periscope, rejoice! You are no longer limited to the crappy, low-resolution, front-facing camera on your phone. Following an update to the Periscope app today, you can now use a wide-angled, high-resolution GoPro Hero camera to broadcast live to the world.
Despite Twitter owning Periscope, the service’s live feeds only ever showed up in timelines as links that you had to click through to. Now that’s changed, with Periscope feeds appearing and playing with Twitter itself.
Another year, another couple thousand new apps for you to wade through in a befuddled haze. Which ones should you download? Which ones should you actually pay for? And which ones deserve to take up prime real estate on your home screen? Whether you’ve spent the last 365 days asking yourself those very questions, or…
Police in Fargo, North Dakota have started livestreaming traffic stops via Periscope in an experiment for all the world to see. And so far, it’s been an embarrassing failure. But the Fargo PD doesn’t see it that way.
If you don’t have a cable subscription, you won’t be able to watch tonight’s Republican Presidential debate on Fox News. Which feels so 20th century. But if you’re a cordcutter who’s really desperate, we might humbly suggest you try Periscope.
It’s just after midnight and you’re jolted awake by the sound of a window breaking somewhere on your street. You look outside and you see two men who you’re pretty sure are stealing your neighbor’s car. You take out your phone but instead of calling 911, you start live-streaming to Periscope.
Periscope is finally allowing web-based replays of video that was streamed live, fixing a major pitfall of live-streaming. The service said in a Tweet that it will allow web users to watch replays in their browser for up to 24 hours after the broadcast. Previously, Periscope only allowed replays on Android and iOS…
Periscope now has a map view to help you find broadcasters based on location, which might make it easier to find content that you’re actually, y’know, interested in.
This week is the big annual tech holiday for Android fans (with Google Photos as a present), and Apple enthusiasts big day isn’t far behind, but we still got some great apps to talk about amidst the big headlines concerning new OS features and the like. Android gets completely caught up in the world of livestreaming,…
You can now sign up to Periscope using just your cell number—no need for a Twitter account if you’re not that way inclined.

Welcome to a new week with plenty of new apps, and we've got all the best right here. Part of me wants to call this week's app roundup a special "music" edition because an odd amount of great music streaming and discovery apps came out this week—but let's not forget the huge app drops from Twitter and Instagram, too.
Just because that awesomely-retro film camera you bought on eBay or at the junk shop uses film that's no longer in production (case in point: 126 film) doesn't mean you can't get any photos out of it. Through-the-viewfinder photography can be pretty effective when done well, by pointing a digital camera's lens through…
Working from home, the post-man's the only person I have to watch out for, so cubicle-dwellers will have greater need for a boss-watching periscope than I do. Using a few supplies you'll be closing the Gizmodo tab well within time.
