We brush off new apps coming out all the time that claim they'll change the way we live and communicate.
But when there are two that involve live streaming video from your phone that quickly grow a following, I definitely start paying attention to them.
Meerkat, which launched a few weeks ago, and Periscope, which just went public a few days ago from being in a closed beta, both allow for people to instantly stream video from their phone and post a link to it on Twitter.
In this video I show the two apps in their current state, how their different, and why you'd actually want to consider using them.
