Tip: save storage space on your iPhone and iPad by clearing Periscope’s stored data

Clearing caches in your favorite apps is one of the many ways of saving storage space on your iPhone, iPad or iPod touch that may be lost to the cruft accumulated on your devices. We’ve already shown you how to clear Twitter’s web and media storage as well as delete Dropbox’s caches.

In this tutorial, we’ll discuss how to clear any cached files in Twitter’s Periscope app for iOS, which will help save that precious storage space on your device.

You can now stream live video from Twitter app

Twitter today announced that users of its mobile app can now broadcast Periscope-powered live video. Why go live on Twitter? Because live video broadcasts “bring moments and events to life in a way that no other medium can,” said the popular microblogging service. This newly added feature requires an update to Twitter’s mobile app, which is rolling out to everyone on the App Store today.

Periscope update brings camera and sharing improvements & more

Periscope, Twitter’s live video-streaming app, has been refreshed in the App Store this morning with a few new features related to in-app camera, sharing and more. For starters, you’ll notice improved tap-to-focus while broadcasting live video, plus you can now follow a broadcaster from the viewers list with one tap. There are also improvements to Persicope’s VIP Program and more.

Your Periscope broadcasts are now saved permanently by default

Twitter-owned Periscope has brought out two new features in its most recent update on the App Store, saving and searching broadcasts. As of Periscope 1.4.1 for iPhone, your broadcasts are now saved permanently by default. Additionally, the new search feature is now live, allowing you to find popular places on the world map to quickly locate interesting broadcasts around the world.

Periscope for iPhone now lets you search videos and broadcast live from DJI drones

Periscope, a Twitter-owned app that lets anyone start a live video broadcast from their iPhone, today received a pretty substantial update on the App Store. Bumped to version 1.4, Periscope for iPhone now lets you search videos and broadcast live to the service from a compatible DJI drone.

In addition, the team shared a preview of their full beyond 24 hours approach that will be available in the coming weeks.

Periscope gains live-sketching feature, broadcasts come alive within Twitter for iOS

Wouldn’t it be great if you could doodle over live video broadcasts on Periscope? With Periscope’s latest iPhone app refresh, now you can! The latest version of the Twitter-owned app lets you draw with your finger on top of a live video feed in any color you want, like a boss.

Your drawings automatically disappear after a few moments, similar to the Apple Watch’s sketching feature, and remain visible on Periscope replays.

Doodling over live video coming soon to Periscope

Periscope is currently testing a brand new feature that allows you to draw with your finger on top of a live video feed, The Next Web reported today. You can pick any color to draw with by tapping on a live video feed or use the new selection interface to draw in three primary colors.

Facebook too is working on ability to draw on video as part of the Facebok Live features so we’re not surprised that rival Periscope, which is owned by Twitter, would work on this.

New Periscope update makes it easier to watch a broadcast with someone you know

Periscope, a Twitter-owned live video-broadcasting app, was updated today in the App Store with changes that make it easier to watch a broadcast with someone you know.

If a person that you follow who also follows you back joins your broadcast, you will now see their name in chat.

“We’ll also prioritize their name in the viewers list, and show you how many of your mutuals are in the broadcast right now,” release notes read.

Facebook expanding Live Video feature to all iPhone users in the US

Facebook on Thursday announced that it would be expanding its live video broadcasting feature to all iPhone users in the United States. The company began testing the feature, aimed directly at Twitter’s Periscope, in December, along with its photo collage update.

To share a live video, make sure you have the latest version of the Facebook mobile app and open up the Update Status sheet. You should see the Live Video icon sitting above the keyboard. Type a brief description and choose your audience before tapping it to go live.

Live Periscope broadcasts are being integrated into Twitter’s mobile app

In a major move, micro-blogging startup Twitter today announced that live Periscope broadcasts are coming to Twitter for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad, making it possible to watch broadcasts without leaving Twitter’s mobile app.

Now when you tap a Periscope link in your timeline, no longer does it take you to the Periscope app. Instead, those links are getting replaced with the broadcast itself that automatically plays right within your tweet.
