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.
Ben RubinHiring@benrbn · Co-founder, Life On Air Inc
@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!
jonas@jnsdls · Yeah, I don't know either.
@benrbn @rrhoover Ben, you got that invite yet, otherwise I'll happily DM you one on twitter?
Ben RubinHiring@benrbn · Co-founder, Life On Air Inc
@sleinadsanoj yeah please do me Thank U!
Joe Ringenberg@jringenberg · Director of Design, Wistia
@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).
Josh Cohen@jshchnz · Co-Founder, ThnkDev
@sleinadsanoj @rrhoover Anyone have an extra invite?
Justin Jackson@mijustin · MegaMaker
@rrhoover just tried it out. You definitely have to watch the video above to figure out the basics. Not intuitive out of the box. I'm `mijustin` if anyone wants to hang out!

Owen Williams@ow · Digital Director at VanMoof
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:

@emieljanson · Designer, Blendle
@ow I was just about to add your article. 👊
Owen Williams@ow · Digital Director at VanMoof
Thomas GriffinHiring@thomasle0n · CEO, ArtSquare
@ow I assume you know how the invites work?
Owen Williams@ow · Digital Director at VanMoof
@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.
Ouriel Ohayon@ourielohayon · appsfire, CEO/ isai (VC) co-founder
@ow seems very original. interested to see if people get used to it.

Adam O'Kane@adamokane · product strategist & writer
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.
