Once primarily a text experience, social networks are awash in video. Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat and even Tumblr are betting that people want to watch video, any video, on their phones.
And yet, what if there were one app that pulled it all in to answer an eternal question: "What's going on around me?" That's the concept behind Centric, a new app that grabs live video from a host of different apps and sorts it by location.
“Everyone wants to know what's happening around them,” said New York-based founder Vincent Gibson, who hails from Scotland. “There’s so much great video content, and the only way that that content gets discovered is if you follow the right person or friend the right person or subscribe to the right channel. We’ve been slightly obsessed with this idea of location. The hope is that content is going to be relevant to you because it’s near you.”
Centric, which quietly launched on the Apple App Store last month, sources video from YouTube, Twitter and Periscope. Open the app, wherever you are, and you will see the latest and nearest videos uploaded across the three networks. Some are live; some were just recorded.
