I made a short video and a info-graphic about why Periscope should start building a desktop application to expand his reach and influence in the screen-casting/tutorial-making community.
Losing internet connection, getting a call, forgetting to enable chat, falling down all the reasons for possible broadcast interruptions.
Enable a “pause” option or an ability to continue a broadcast under the same name / settings.
On many occasions I had the application freeze on me or I would simply by mistake press the back button two times…and I would loose touch with the person that did the broadcast (and meanwhile the broadcast ended).
This is the key step on creating popular Periscopers – knowing how to find them.
If you think about it periscope is the best screen cast platform – with it’s close ties to Twitter it could dominate in the screen cast world.
Sharing screen casts would be super easy – and you would get access to new market of tutorial makers / screen-casters
Desktop version will give me an ability to cut the image feed for a couple of sec, or censor a part of my screen when typing in sensitive information…
