App lets anyone experience 12 seconds of someone else’s life

Photo and video sharing has become a phenomenon following the success of apps such as Instagram and more recently Snapchat, the platform that lets users send 10-second messages that disappear after they’ve been viewed, and which recently declined a buy-out offer from Facebook worth USD 3 billion. Now a new app from Greece could join them — PeekInToo offers a real-time, virtual glimpse into an anonymous person’s life for just 12 seconds.
