We define it as a place where: 1) You are not requested to provide any information regarding your identity (e.g.

Peekintoo is a location-based application, in order to record and upload a Peek, you'll have to enable your
location services which you can access in the “settings” option of your mobile device. If this setting has not
been activated, you can only request and view Peeks uploaded by other users.
If a Peek has failed to upload it is automatically saved and can be accessed in your personal timeline. You can
also record Peeks offline and save them so you can upload them once you're better connected.
Peeks from users you follow will appear in your Home feed. To follow users whose content you enjoy, select the
Peek you like, then tap the “Anonymous User” label located on the top left hand corner of the Peek. You'll then be
taken to this user's profile, tap the Follow button. You'll then have the option of nick naming that user (e.g.
concert aficionado, NYC, etc.) to better distinguish them in your Home feed.
If you tap to view a Peek that you like and the label “Super Anonymous User” appears on the top left hand corner
of the Peek, this indicates that this user has chosen for that particular video not to be associated with their
profile, and in this case, this user cannot be followed.
Search for events or hashtags by going to your Explore menu and tapping “Search for events, places or hashtags”.
A drop box will appear where you can access Events or Popular Tags. Tap the event or hashtag you are interested
in, and then select the “Follow” button which appears above the Peeks containing the event or hashtag you've
selected. The latest Peeks containing hashtags and events you follow will appear in your Home feed and you will
also be notified via a push notification.
I don't want to receive a push notification for every single event, hashtag and user I follow.
You can modify this in your settings options located on the top right area of your personal timeline. If you turn
off notifications from “things I follow” you will no longer receive pushes for them.
On the top right hand corner of the app, you will see an inbox folder with a number attached to it. The number
indicates how many Peek requests you currently have. Pressing the icon will take you to your inbox which includes
the location from which each Peek request was sent. You have up to 2 hours to respond to a request before it

Peek in areas where there are other active users.
Any user can view uploaded Peeks. You can select which Peeks you would like to include in your anonymous
personal timeline and whether to include the exact location of a Peek. Selecting “On Timeline” makes a Peek
visible on your timeline and to your followers, whereas selecting “Off Timeline” hides it from your anonymous
timeline, but is still be searchable by hashtag or location. Selecting “On Map” displays the exact location of the
Peek on a map, while “Off Map” simply states the city or country to other users.
You have an anonymous personal timeline where you can see all the Peeks that you have uploaded along with the

addition, you can find Peeks that you've shared and information about the number of recorded Peeks, views, likes,
followers and users you follow.
