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.
If you’re a member of your local public radio station, we thank you — because your support helps those stations keep programs like Marketplace on the air. But for Marketplace to continue to grow, we need additional investment from those who care most about what we do: superfans like you.
Your donation — as little as $5 — helps us create more content that matters to you and your community, and to reach more people where they are – whether that’s radio, podcasts or online.
When you contribute directly to Marketplace, you become a partner in that mission: someone who understands that when we all get smarter, everybody wins.
