@suzywillow and I were watching Wonder Woman until I received a push notification announcing tonight's show. The appointment mechanic is refreshing, bringing a sense of togetherness and thrill as thousands of people play together. Unfortunately I only made it four questions in. ๐Ÿ˜ž About a year ago @rus launched Hype which exhibited some of the same colorful, fun branding and live video focus. While creative, I found most of the content and creators uninteresting (a common problem with most live video streaming apps). It appears the team learned a bit from Hype and narrowed their focus on a specific format (trivia game show). That said, I'm curious to hear the backstory from @rus. ๐Ÿ˜Š

This is the future. I think that companies like Snapchat have been going in the wrong direction with content: Going digital is good, but being interactive and competitive is much more important. I grew up watching a lot of game shows and wishing I could participate, so I look forward to giving this a try.

Only 1โ€“2 shows per day, and times may be inconvenient depending on your location.

They should show some sort of preview or have a tutorial / computer mode where you can play previous games.

The app itself is pretty nice and when it works, the experience is seamless.

Unfortunately, the games are frequently delayed and experience technical difficulties. Plus often you put the right answer but it doesn't register.

Also, the trivia questions are not very satisfying. Who cares what company

owns Waypoint? That's not an interesting piece of knowledge.

Also apparently the founder doesn't know how journalism works.

Pros:

Fun, fresh, simple, free, and who doesn't like trivia games (and winning money maybe but probably not)

Cons:

* Not clear what it is until you reach a live show

* Some tech difficulties

* If you win, amount will probably be ~$3 unless really lucky

This is pretty clever โ€” gameshow meets Periscope!
