Beme relaunches

by Volker Weber

If you have trouble understanding Snapchat, Beme is a tough nut to crack. I tried it last year, and it sucked big time. Now the team releases a new app for Android and iOS. The idea is simple. You broadcast what is happening around you. No filter, no fancy fonts, nothing. Just cover the proximity sensor and it starts recording.

Casey Neistat, YouTuber of the Year has this idea, that we should stop posing and instead of looking at a screen to just share what we see. What we really see. And I like that. I like it more than Snapchat.

I know two people who play with Beme: Teymur and me. And we are both not convinced that Beme will fly. But we both like what Casey is doing.

Comments

Snapchat and Beme seem to best fit those who meet certain criteria:
+ they have interesting lives, or;
+ they have the time to create interesting situations, or;
+ they are beautiful and photograph/video well.

That depends on what you are interested in. I'd rather have all my friends and acquaintances beme something that is happening in their real life. They are sometimes far away, as yourself, and I have no idea what is going on around you. Maybe boring to you but certainly not for me.

So it's not really sharing live, but only once you stop recording? And all the interaction takes place after the event rather than during it?

I think I prefer Periscope, which also has no filter, no fancy fonts, nothing. But it's sharing live and the interaction is happening live while you're sharing.
