Anyone use this app? If you do, what do you think of it and is it worth it?

I'll try to translate.

Saturday (June 6th) Rianne Schuurman became an internet phenomenon, more or less by accident. Being a communication advisor in service of the Martini hospital, she tried Periscope for the first time, and was followed by hundreds at once.

Schuurman intended to promote the food bank of the city of Groningen and entered the Jumbo supermarket in the Euroborg district. Immediately after her arrival she was sent back because a bomb was reported. She grabbed her phone to try the Twitter-app Periscope for the occasion. That app allows one to show the world what happens.

Five people
"When I checked after a while, five people apparently watched," Schuurman says. She decided to keep on filming for the sake of those five. Three hours later 1400 people watched and several media interviewed her, among them the national public broadcast NOS.

She only had a little problem: her battery almost ran empty. She asked several bystanders, who could supply power for her iPhone. Somewhat later Arnoud Bodde, reporter for the local broadcast RTV Noord, showed up. He equipped her with a full batterypack and a good microphone, which allowed her to go on streaming for some hours more.

The communication advisor feels that this will not be the last live reporting. Yet she emphasises that she doesn't like situations like this: "I don't hope this will happen daily."
