One of the hottest trends in social media these days is live-streaming. There have been several sites and software featuring live-streaming services before, but they only gained much more attention upon the advent of mobile devices. Periscope leads the pack of mobile apps offering primarily live-streaming services. It is considered a game-changer in the social media field because unlike other social media sites, Periscope gained a million of users in just a short period of time. It is widely used as evidenced by the bulk of streamed videos being watched in one day – more or less 40 million minutes. But there are certain limitations to this app and that's where Scope Freak comes in to help.

Scope Freak is a desktop software tool designed for Periscope streams. This one-of-a-kind software tool was launched on December 28, 2015. It is intended to assist online marketers in their video advertising pursuits.

Creators
Ali G and Marcus Lim are the authors of this software tool. They are the same team who brought Social Interest Freak and Social Lead Freak to numerous online marketers who want to gain an edge in their social media marketing pursuits. Ali G also created other efficient web marketing tools such as 1st Place Penguin, Forum Fortunes, WP Mobile Assault, WP Time Trigger and WP Video Commando.

How to Use the Program
Upon the purchase of the software, it can be installed on computers. It is highly compatible; In fact, it works on MacBook, laptop and desktop computers.

You just need to sign up for a free account once the program is installed. The interface of this program is pretty straightforward too; you just need to follow four simple steps to save livestreams.

The first step is to insert the streamed video's URL. Second, choose the destination folder for the downloaded video. The third step takes time because it is when the stream is being downloaded. However, unlike several video-downloading programs, Scope Freak lets users download videos in a speedy manner. It can even download three-hour streams in just a few minutes. A progress bar is placed to indicate the percentage of the downloaded parts. When all the raw files are downloaded, the word 'Finished' will be shown down the list of the raw files. The fourth and final step is the uploading of the downloaded stream into your YouTube account.

Pros
