Following the announcement that Twitter will be officially shutting down its six-second video-sharing app Vine, the founders of Vine have already launched the all-new Hype app for iOS.

The Hype app sets itself apart from other livestreaming apps like Snapchat, Instagram and Facebook by allowing users to compile rich mixtures of previously recorded materials with all-new creations. Additionally, users are able to integrate comments from viewers within broadcasts that they make, alongside emojis and music.

While experiencing all of these forms of mixed media communication at once may sound a bit overwhelming, Hype's unique sharing style has appeal to young digital natives who have grown up in a time where they are often inundated with information and must be able to process it quickly, or struggle to keep up with interactions from their peers.
