Beme, a social video app that was launched by popular YouTuber Casey Neistat on in 2015, is now out of beta. The full 1.0 release of Beme for iPhone includes a few notable improvements, including the ability to watch Bemes full screen and discover others around the globe.

Here's the rundown of what's new:

  • Tap Bemes to react and watch full screen
  • See Beme stats in your profile
  • Discover people near and far in the new discovery screen.

If you're unfamiliar with Beme, the app is meant to encourage you to share video of what you're doing without taking you out of the moment. Rather than staring at your phone's display while you record, you simply open the app and then hold the phone's screen to your chest to instantly start capturing what you're looking at. Once you're done, just pull the phone away to stop recording and your clip is instantly shared. Of course, you can also record by simply holding a hand over the sensors on the front of your phone, but the screen will remain a solid color to keep you from watching the viewfinder.

The goal, of course, is to allow you to stay "in the moment" and share real experiences without filtering the content. If you're interested, you can grab the latest update on the App Store now. Also be sure to check out Neistat's rundown of the app in the YouTube video below.
