For this app, what search settings did you use? "Women/under 20/personal" or something like that?
Justin was about 20 when he started the lifecasting genre, and that's still about the age group that seems to want to share their life online the most. I get the list of live streams in the "social" category once a minute, and show those channels that have viewers (at least 5.) I don't think the age of the broadcaster is available in the API, but that sounds like a good addition.
I made this in about a day (a bit longer than that, but I was sick, so...) I encourage you to try it out and provide feedback! It's written in Ruby on Rails. It's like Hot Or Not, but for Live Video. Any suggestions are welcome!
More importantly, what features could take this application to the next level? Right now, it's just a tech demo, but it could be its own app. Thanks.
the original hotornot concept was about people posting pics to get feedback. here it's not clear whether the people submitted themselves to be rated, or can see the votes. it makes a difference whether users think their votes matter or not.
make sure the next feed you show me isn't the one i just voted on.
the skip button encourages people to not vote.
it's not obvious you can click the image to enter the chat room.
otherwise, it's pretty good :)
I can think of a dozen other cool simple ideas that could be implemented with their new api.
I think you may need to tweak the randomness a little though. I got the same girl-in-pajamas 4 times in a row.
