I love love love @caseyneistat's Snapchat feed, YouTube videos, and Vine videos. It's interesting to see him (a "new media celeb") move into product. I have yet to try the app but it's clear that it's focusing on participation (something @benrbn from Meerkat has talked a lot about and demonstrated with their launch of Cameo. Here's another article about the app by @MikeIsaac in the NYT.

@rrhoover I wish I could get in and play with it :-) Beme is trying to create a new habit, and usually that's a key for building a meaningful medium. Can't wait to play with it!
jonasHiring@jnsdls · Yeah, I don't know either.
@benrbn @rrhoover Ben, you got that invite yet, otherwise I'll happily DM you one on twitter?

@sleinadsanoj yeah please do me Thank U!

@rrhoover Thanks for capturing this! I wonder if they tried other interactions - the two-hand requirement is definitely a weak spot, and an accessibility woe. Perhaps something like the 'kudos' hover target on Svbtle? Though you need the ability to tap to get the rapid fire multi-reactions (I assume that's what we're seeing here).

Have been trying this for the last hour or so and am finding it hopelessly addictive. I think the app will do well - it really just forces you to share the raw moment without the normal positioning that comes with social media. I was skeptical, but the app blew me away. A quick look: http://thenextweb.com/apps/2015/...

@ow I assume you know how the invites work?
Owen Williams@ow · Building re:Charged.
@thomasle0n @ow Yeah, the invites are either a queue, or if you know someone you can get a code. Even Casey admitted it's a pain, but I can see how they're using it to try and grow.

@ow seems very original. interested to see if people get used to it.

It's early to make too many big statements about this product and how it could fit into the social landscape, but one thing I like is that it's so distinctly a product by Casey Neistat. The voice and aesthetics are so uniquely him. I don't say that to minimize beme's team's contributions and hard work, but it just brings to mind his videos and individual style. The other thing I want to give them props for is their unique UI. It'll take a bit before it can really be judged, but they should get credit for building something totally new, and not leaning too much on the UI of existing apps.
