How to use the Hype app and win all the sparkles

Mobile Apps
If you thought Snapshot was weird, wait until you get a load of Hype. From the makers of the now defunct Vine app, comes a brand new app for a live broadcast video. And the twist is how you add multimedia and interact with viewers. You can add photos and text and gifts and you can even more move around in real time and that's what adds personal charm to each Hype. But before you go live you want to give your presentation some thing says. The default starts with a grey background, to change it hold your figure down on the background and you will see- See a menu with several animations. Your background can also be a photo, an animated gif, or a video from your camera roll. You begin with a video in a circle cut out, but you can change the shape of the window. Or when it's a square you can crop it and And then zoom in and out or spin it around. If you don't want to be in the broadcast, taping the ghost icon will mute your mic and hide the video window. Click the plus sign to add photos and video or select multiple images to create a slide show You can also add music to play in the background, or text. Tapping the search icon pulls up animated GIFs and Vines. Because you can never be too weird on the Internet. All these elements are stacked like a deck of cards. You can bring an item to the front by selecting it, and tapping the layer icon. If you want something to fill the screen, tap the double arrow icon in the right corner. And tap it again to shrink it Get back down. Here is the best part, when you go live, you can keep adding moving or deleting elements in real time, while interacting one of your audience comments. And you can highlight comments, tap on a message in the chat window, and it appears as a chat bubble in your video. Yes you have to interact that's the whole. Point and if people like you they'll subscribe to you and be alerted the next time you go live. Some people have even crafted their own themed talk shows out of this. I mean just look at some of these people with their weird shows. Everyone wants to be a star, and what drives them the sparkles. Viewers tap a part of the Screen to make is sparkle, to show that they like something, it makes it all so magical. It's hard to tell right now if Hype will become the next video creation sensation. So one thing's for sure, hype has the right blend of internet weirdness to work. For CNET, I'm Virgie Curry.
