The Meerkat is a social animal (belonging to the mongoose family) that lives in colonies established inside burrows, blissfully unaware of the fact that a San Francisco based start-up has made it famous. The digital avatar of the Meerkat, is a free live-streaming app that allows users to stream videos in real-time and publish it to their Twitter feed. The app has been downloaded over 100,000 times in just two weeks after it went live on the App Store. A TechCrunch report suggests that number has tripled, as of 20th March. Meerkat is currently available only on devices running iOS 8 or higher; there is no official Android app yet, however, a few enthusiastic engineers at Meerkat came up with this stream watcher app.
