@cleggskie You mean Meerkat? I'm not trying to just be snarky... what _is_ new/different about this from Meerkat, Periscope, Blab, FireChat, FB Live... Looking forward to checking it out, but really what's really new/killer here.

Hey guys! We do have a beta wall up right now. I've added the code "producthunt". Please let us know what you think

*No need to use the code anymore.

Does the world need *another* video app, tho? Serious question.
Alain Ekambi@ekambos · Founder @ahomeit
@brynatweets Looks like so :) :)

@ekambos I'm also bitter that there is no Android support. But even still, can't help but roll my eyes at the idea of another live stream/video/snapchatty thing. There is a reason Vine died on the Vine. That said, you can't knock the Vine team for trying and experimenting with something new. I'll keep an eye on this and see what comes of it, perhaps I'll be proven wrong.

@brynatweets @ekambos Android support will soon follow
Alain Ekambi@ekambos · Founder @ahomeit
@brynatweets Maybe they found something we dont see yet. I will give it a try and see.
Bryna Corcoran@brynatweets · VP, Digital Marketing
@ekambos Exactly. I'm always up for giving it a try and I know this stuff takes A LOT of work to get to market, so that's the least we can do is give it a spin and hope it kills it.
