I have to say that I'm slightly addicted to Periscope and I'm not sure why? It might be the way Periscope feels like it brings you closer to the person, celebrity or event that is live streaming via the app.

How does it work

As it's owned by Twitter you obviously connect your twitter account once you download the app. Once into the app you have the option of viewing live feeds from the people you follow on Twitter that are also on Periscope, watch the global live feeds that are trending or start your own stream. (I have yet to bore the world with this yet)

You'll also get a notification as soon as one of the people you follow are live on Periscope, you can manage this in your settings should you decide that you've had enough of them.

All in all I love the app at the moment, but I'm pretty sure I'll get tired of the notifications once more and more users jump on to Periscope.
