Social networks always make life look more interesting and people – more beautiful. Contrariwise, the new Beme messenger does not show you any pretty photos, nice looking smileys or well-written statuses. The only thing the app can give its users is a glimpse of life in its true colours.
- Beme was released in 2015.
- It was founded by Casey Neistat and Matt Hackett.
- It runs only on iOS (8.0 and higher).
- Beme’s main feature allows making videos of 4 seconds long. Recording starts when you hold your smartphone close to any surface. A beep will signal the beginning and the end of the recording.
- A user will not be able to preview the clip on the screen, only after posting it.
- A user can view the clip within 24 hours just once and then it will be removed automatically.
- To view the video, you have to tap the screen and hold your finger on it. If you take it away, playing will stop.
- In this app, you cannot give Likes or send your friends stickers. The only way to show your response to a shared video is send your selfie to its author.
- Beme allows subscribing to other users and then following their feed with video clips.
- You used to be able to sign up only with codes that the creators of the app published online from time to time. The latest update has made registration available for everyone.
- The app has a laconic design. Black background, white and bright green text – that’s it.
- The app’s co-founder and a famous film director Casey Neistat made his own blog and posted entries in it for four months with just one goal – to make users aware of Beme messenger.
