Meerkat was the first to take hold of this current live streaming phenomenon and run with it. It was also the only show in town for awhile, so there was a lot of activity and it seemed to be a must-have for everyone interested in live video.

But once Twitter's Periscope launched, everything changed. Suddenly, the ability to browse videos gave us all something we didn't know we wanted. Meerkat's total reliance on Twitter also became a weakness, as people realized any mundane comment on a live show would go out to all their Twitter followers.

Still, Meerkat was the app that got everyone interested in the phenomenon. Hopefully, with some changes in future updates, it can reclaim its position as one of the best apps for live streams. But if it stays as is, Periscope will continue to take over the live-streaming space, with more features and more things to do in the app.
