Hey folks so we created #Katch with a simple plan. We kept seeing Meerkats in our feed that were already over and we thought it would be cool to create a “record button” for Meerkat.

And, while it's understandable on desktop, I hate to watch a video like that on mobile. shame on you, youtube! :D How youtube should fix this: when so… See more
