Want to know what’s going on right now all over London? Or see what you’re missing around you during a festival at Glastonbury?
Centric App 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 have just been recorded. Centric App’s map slider seamlessly filters and users can explore content according to their chosen radius – as close as street level and as far as 22 miles.
Centric App expands the reach of user-uploaded content by making it available to anyone in the neighbourhood to randomly stream. Users can follow and friend their favourite accounts to curate more personalised streams — all the while remaining anonymous, if they choose.
B. Bonin Bough, Chief Media and eCommerce Officer at Mondelez International, referred to Centric App at SXSW as the “app to watch,” adding that “the connected stream is happening and people who can jump on that play now are right on time.”
Marcos Pagani, Angel investor in Centric App says:
“Everyone loves being the first to discover new and exciting content and to know if something interesting is going on nearby. Centric App lets users discover video being posted around them outside the ‘echo chamber’ of their own networks – without the stress of finding, following and friending new people. It offers the confidence that they won’t miss a thing.”
Centric App is made of a team of five based out of London and New York City and has raised £380,000 in funding. The founders hope to improve the app in the near future by using Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning to filter videos in a more intelligent way.
