Screen freezes 1/5
When I am on microphone as a guest, the screen freezes and I can no longer hear or see the live broadcast in which I am cohost. Pls fix this.
Can’t filter out the garbage now? 2/5
What’s up with the influx of all the pornography on here now? How is this appropriate for kids? There are too many channels to effectively report. You guys have to do something about this. 🙁
Great app but needs to do more 4/5
It would be great to cast the app to streaming devices💙💛💚

You guys are the best I met my long distance boyfriend from California. From December 2019 an we are still dating
Happy Birthday Periscope! You’re grand!!
Can’t use my IRIG HD2 Audio Interface. 1/5
By Error 3000
In the past I was able to stream audio from my DJ Mixer Into my iphone using an Irig HD2 audio interface through the lightning port.
Now everytime I try to broadcast it disable my IRIG HD2 and only uses my phone’s mic cutting out the audio. Please fix and I’ll glad rate this app five stars again.
persicope is for spammers, scammers and porn 1/5
stay away. no quality broadcasts here. the app is a joke.
PLEASE REMOVE SOME NEWLY ADDED, UNNECESSARY (privacy) FEATURES!!! 1/5
By Tina Jean Darling
You have way too many pervert, pedophiles, and mentally demented men and women users on your app-for you to give them this added, what should be private info & user pic access features!!!!
Remove or alter them as a one time use, if possible immediately!
Do you see the Vulgar, Child, & Adult Porn that is all over your App now (especially in the past week, up until an hour ago that is on your Globe & shared out to us by Followers)?!?!?!?? YOU MUST TERMINATE ALL OF THIS AND THE ACCOUNT USER’s Multiple Accounts PERMANENTLY - Like other Social Media apps do!!!! Because you, Periscope, are losing a lot of account/users currently FYI, even though you are aware of it. There were 7-8 year olds on your App for months & yesterday, fully naked & doing pornographic things!!!! That filth stayed on my-our timelines for over an hour!!!!🤬 That was with Reporting Sexual Content over & over!🤬
However, you had employees working & able to rearrange the ridiculous profile status to breach even more privacy account issues for your account users!? Go figure. I’ll gladly give you a list of known Perverts, Pedophiles, On app strippers, Sex accounts, nudity account users, $cammers, and so on if you are interested in shutting down those Repeat Offenders of ALL AGES!!!! Contact me!
It’s really best if this sadly, “fallen” app terminates itself all together soon! Because it seems to be out of control with nothing but Bullying, Abusers/Teasers of Mentally Challenged persons, Doxers, Child/adult Porn, and more unruly trash.
Everything must come to an END!
OMG THERE IS NOBODY MONITORING THIS APP, SO MUCH UNDERAGE STUFF, I lost count how many times I’ve reported people and bots, it seems like there is nobody out there canceling this accounts. I love the app but come on, so disappointed. Need more checking in. If you see something please report it
iTMS App Store is broken YET AGAIN 1/5
Well, it’s that time again, folks! Apple has fouled up something on their iTunes App Store servers, and so those of us who are still using iTunes 12.6.5 for Enterprise iOS device support and management are unable to (1) download new purchases from the store, and (2) update existing apps. When you clock the “download” button in the App Store, you see a message “Downloading …” but nothing happens and no error message appears. Similarly, if you click the “update” button on an app update, or the “Update All Apps” button, you will see the same “Downloading …” messages, but nothing will actually download and you’ll see no error message to explain why. This happens for every single app in the app store and every single update shown in the iTMS app updates interface.
Maybe the Big Brains at Apple have chosen this particular moment to finally, silently cut off all iOS app download/update methods except those done via the iDevice’s individual App Store interfaces, making it impossible for IT managers to control app purchase/update rollouts across all of their devices in anything other than an anarchic, catch-as-catch-can fashion. Or maybe they’ve just bungled their backend app update servers, like they seem to do with increasing frequency throughout these last few years of continuing decay and cr*pification of Apple’s feeble Web Services offerings. As usual, Apple support aren’t listening to end-users who submit error reports for this issue, so the only recourse for us is to pass the buck by giving one-star reviews to every app update that’s affected, in the hopes that developers with money on the line and access to actual iTunes Technical Support (as opposed to the teenage babysitters assigned to deal with lowly end-users) can get the problem fixed sometime before the next ice age arrives.
As of 09:51 on Monday, 23 March 2020, this is the list of app updates I’ve found that exhibit this problem:
AT&T Call Protect
Blue Shield of California
Cornell University’s eBird
Periscope Live Video Streaming
Route: Package & Order Tracker
Sync - Secure cloud storage

Met my Fiancé 5/5
Now here me out I’m not saying that everyone who goes on this app will share the same experience that I had but it’s one worth sharing. Back in 2014 I first started using periscope from my apartment in LA. I’m not going to lie I was freshly out of a relationship, didn’t want to go out as much yet, and alone. I would live stream on here and meet people and make friends. During my time streaming I met good quality friends from all over the United States and 6 years later we remained friends. However, one night I decide to pop on someone scope from Maryland. He was partaking in the same type of social events that I enjoyed and he was cracking jokes. I was hooked... he added me on snap chat and 5 years later we are engaged, I closed the distance on our relationship, and we have never been happier with another partner in our lives as we are with one another. It truly was love at first sight. I’m writing this because not everyone will find their love on this app, however it helps the time pass and loneliness to separate those times. I suggest you stream, Ignore the ignorance, make a small following of friends, support them while they stream, and be kind ❤️ for me? I’m marrying my husband 😬
Where is SUPER FAN LIST???? 1/5
Please bring back Super Fan list! Why was it removed????
Tap to skip fwd 1/5
Yeah it shows me the scroll bar but no way to actually skip .... One star
Could have done without the new update. Starting to look like a fb format....users being able to see mutual followers and what’s next,,,suggestions on who I should follow based upon what I watch?🙄☠️
World Travel 4/5
I get to see the world through other people’s lens.
Connecting around the world! 5/5
What an awesome way to connect around the world. Love it.
By Terry Greenbeans
Periscope is an important medium and this review is dedicated to the Prince of Periscope: Steven Brody Stevens #rip #goodguy
So far this app is terrible but FORTUNATELY I only downloaded it to verify that LP’s Gay Sex Tape exists. I will be deleting this trash app ASAP!
This is platform looks like porn hub! 1/5
By Oleg Zabugorsky
This is platform looks like porn hub! Too bad,, I use this application five years and last two years it’s very very Bad situation
Needs A Few Tweaks - Could Be 5 Star App! 3/5
Periscope has some annoying features that really need to be fixed. I’ve been using the app since 2016 and I’ve had about two years away from it because of its dysfunctional usability, only to come back and find the SAME issues lurking around. Here’s what I mean:
1. Turn-Off Retweets: Periscope doesn’t have an official name for Retweets in the app, but users can share a live broadcast and their followers will see that video in their feeds as well.
Here’s the problem — There’s no way to turn it off! If I don’t want to see these Retweeted videos that have zero relevance to my Periscope experience or my life in general, I can’t “opt-out”. I can either scroll past or unfollow the member entirely, which means I won’t see when THEY post. That’s all I wanted in the first place.
Some additional comments on this topic: I’d like to be able to have Periscope get to know me by giving my an option to “See Less Like This” like you’d find on YouTube or Facebook.
2. Groups — Probably the largest offender on Periscope. I have been added to over 300 groups without my permission or consent. Before accepting the invitation I see Rebroadcasts from these groups in my Feed, pushing Scopers I actually want to see to the bottom, sometimes not even showing them at all.
When Scopers create a group, they can add anyone without their approval and then added members can add anyone else. There is no group admin to provide approval of new users or direct the content that is shared.
I have been shown porn to random people talking in their bedroom to people smoking marijuana all because Periscope allows for these groups to add me without my permission or acknowledgement.
I can also see the user who Rebroadcast the live stream in my Feed, as their name is in the top right corner of the box. However, if so tap on their name it only puts me into watching the live stream and there is no way to unsubscribe from that user unless I hunt for the search box and then type in their name exactly as it appears. I tried going to Who I Follow first but it was a garnered mess with no tools for organization by Name, Date Added, Most Recent Stream, or Anything.
3. Search Icon at Bottom: The bottom menu bar is a mess. I get confused when seeing the globe because I don’t know if that means “Discover” or “Map” – Spoiler: It’s both.
The Icons should have labels beneath and be listed as this:
1. Feed – List Icon
2. Discover – Search Icon
3. Go LIVE – Red Periscope Icon
4. Notifications – Current Bell Icon
5. My Profile – Person Icon with “+” Next
My Profile should give you a menu where you’re able to see your own page for editing, manage your “Contacts” or “Followers” (whichever term Periscope wants to use) and allow you to search for who you’re currently following or even find people who you want to see:
Ex. Musicians, Painters, BMX Racing, Firefighters, Psychics, Financial Investors, etc. I’ve found all of these things on Periscope, by the way.
4. Contacts Search: Search is Terrible in Periscope. If you don’t have the EXACT name of who you’re trying to find (emojis, spacing, and foreign characters included) the results that are returned are pretty poor.
I’ve followed a few dozen people who I weren’t even looking for because Periscope bounces around from person to person so quickly. I’ve learned that it’s hard to go back and find them, so I have to stop searching for who I really want and add them on the spot.
Managing who you're following is a mess. Nothing is organized and I become frustrated every time I try to search for a friend or someone I’m following.
Also, why are users who don’t have an active Periscope account showing up from my Twitter? I don’t want them if they aren’t going to use Periscope, that only adds another problem.
Audio in call ins 1/5
Did you guys catch the coronavirus because your audio has been glitchy for 3 days now. When will you guys be fixing this? I have done 3 updates and stilllllll noooooo fix. Come on. You are losing people by the day. Fix it please
Pretty shoddy in comparison to similar apps 3/5
Other apps that do similar, like houseparty, discord, etc., not only function far more smoothly but also have more features (that they’d have for years) that periscope lacks. No ability to mute ones own audio, no camera feature on the call ins, etc.
The app is constantly glitchy and almost to the point it’s unusable when they’re working on the app before an update.
Also, you guys need to get a handle on the deranged trainwreck users like “Big Keene” and “Dree”.
I love this app and the ppl Ive gotten to meet, yet the moment I started talking about real world issues and detailed ideas of change, I suddenly became targeted! Whether through no letting me see who joined my broadcast, cutting broadcasts abruptly multiple times in a row even while I have top tier phone service, as well as distorting audio over conversations that held real education value, at first I thought this was just happening to me but it was happening to a number of ppl I realized where like minded individuals! Yet other broadcasters who either want to expose private body parts or or sell there images have 0 and I mean 0 problems going on. Can so one @Periscope please explain to me what’s going on.
The best! 5/5
Just the best.
Horrible application 1/5
Be prepared to be blocked from commenting for no reason whatsoever! This application features an arbitrary comment moderator ability that allows other users to vote and basically get you banned from commenting if they feel what you say is offensive. Saying things like “how are you” to someone can get you banned if people will maliciously vote to make your comment abuse. This is the most absurd I have ever seen. Stay away from this app at all cost
Sadly Disappointed 1/5
I have used this app for a while, and usually find it to be operator error when something went wrong. But last couple months my video stopped saving to my phone and now it is not even saving on the app. I like periscope and tell everyone I can of it’s broadcast abilities. But if this issue is not fixed , I will have to find something else. I hope the creators will try.
By WSU '14
The app died after all of the influencers and entertainers migrated to Instagram Live 2-4 years ago. This app is essentially internet preachers, terrible political pundits, and social rejects. I just realized I still had this app today and removed it immediately.
I like this app
I like it! 5/5

I truly enjoyed Periscope! 5/5
By Bones is me !!!
Enjoying Periscope one hundred percent!
Good but kinda buggy 4/5
By usa funds isis
The recent update helped, the thumbs up channel doesn’t play the same 30 songs over and over again . I have 2.7k thumbs up but can only still see like 700 or so.
One major bug ruins it all 1/5
Was broadcasting a technical talk. Made sure that “save to camera roll” and “save in HD” options were turned on. BUT, because I didn’t turn off the “allow guests” option nothing was saved on my iPad’s camera roll.NOTHING.WAS.SAVED. 🤬🤬🤬
I was planning to interleave the presenter’s PowerPoint into the recorded footage for an enhanced after broadcast video for the participants, but now the only footage I have is the crappy 480p web stream from Periscope.
Lessons learned: 1. Any free app is worth what you pay for it. 2. Record with FiLMiC Pro, edit in Final Cut, and post to YouTube.
Really good 5/5
By not bluecall
This app is really good I just wish there can be live screen recording but I love live streaming on this app
Was hoping these problems would be resolved with time but no improvement. This app is largely unusable for me. Won't load broadcasts most of the time. When they do load connection is lost continually or broadcast freezes. My iPhone has the latest iOS release. Seems to get worse with each update.
Videos do not display 2/5
Updated this version and only the link is viewable as the videos are no longer displayed in tweets which is the main reason I use it.
By eazy ridet
This is a great app to meet different types of people from around the world
NOT OK‼️ 2/5
APP IS TERRIBLE WITH CUSTOMER SUPPORT. THEY DO NOT COMMUNICATE WHATS SO EVER! NOT WORTH A TRY. AS A PERSON WHO ACTUALLY LOVE THIS APP AND THE BASE I HAVE GROWN BUT SADLY I KEEP LOSING IT ALL! ALL DUE TO HORNY GUYS WHO WANTS ME TO BREAK A RULE & WHEN I REFUSE AND TELL THEM TO EXIT THEY REPORT ME! IT’S JUST RIDICULOUS THAT I HAVE TO KEEP RESTARTING OVER RANDOMS. I BROKE ABSOLUTE NO RULES OUT OF ALL MY THREE ACCOUNTS GETTING TERMINATED
Novody takes action on reports nobody reviews them they porpusely want nudity , founders of this app taking advantage on sexuality raciasm therea no.moderators at all !!! Nothing changes even if u report 100 times, this app isnt safe guys
I'm very happy 5/5
This app is awesome
I love watching Periscope and YouTube on my TV at the same time. I text on Periscope share the program by Periscope to Facebook, E-mail and message. If one of my YouTubes are on Periscopes I make sure I have both .
