New app lets strangers crowd-source video to get a better view

The Denver-based startup Krowds just launched. It got our attention because the app helps strangers at public events share unlimited video.

The man behind the App is Andres Espineira. He says think about friends at a concert shooting from different seats … or even parents at a school recital.

“Imagine you get to that recital, you create a crowd — and a crowd are these groups that you can create on the fly and that can have as many people as you want — so you can start contributing video and other parents start contributing video. And there are no limits on length,” Espineira says.

The key, says Espineira, is that you if you missed something or someone else was much closer, you can check out other people’s videos to see from their vantage point.
