‘Sup’ for Android lets you control your friends camera



New apps are constantly arriving in the Play Store, but occasionally one will catch our eye. Sup is a new app for Android that first arrived on iOS (we actually mentioned it on Mobile Roar 58). On the surface this app looks like a cross between Snapchat and Skype, but there’s more to it than that.

When you send a “Sup” to someone they have 5 minutes to respond. If they accept the request it will open their camera so you get a live view of whatever their doing. It’s like opening a portal. This is where the fun begins. Now you can swipe in any direction to give them commands. Swipe right to tell them to move the camera to the right, or up, down, left, etc. Tap the camera button to tell them to switch to Selfie mode. You are in control of what you see (if your friend is obedient).

At the bottom of the screen during a Sup there is a heart with a circle around. The circle signifies how much time is left in your Sup. It’s a little like the Snapchat countdown, but if you tap the heart you can prolong the Sup call. This fun app works with your phone number so it’s very easy to find friends.

Ever since I flipped open my first phone I've been obsessed with the devices. I've dabbled in other platforms, but Android is where I feel most at home.

      1. The internet is like real life. You have to wade through a lot of dicks to find real friends.

  2. “you get a live view of whatever their doing”

    whatever **they’re** doing

    1. Oh wait. I just reread your post. I thought you were being funny at first and emphasizing you get a live view of whatever they’re doing, as in *whatever* as in some type of sexual innuendo.

      But you were just correcting the grammar. I’m sad now. No puns. =.[

      1. …or WHOever they’re doing! AMIRITE?!

        There, is that better?

        1. Haha very nice

  3. I can’t imagine this will be a good idea in most situations :/

    1. It’s opt-in, so it shouldn’t be too bad.

      1. Yeah, but if you start blacklisting/rejecting friends, what’s the point? LOL

  4. Maybe I’m just not down with what today’s kids find cool but couldn’t I do all this and more in a hangout? I can have a video hangout with them and verbally tell them to switch the camera. Then I can verbally say holy crap she’s hot!!! Keep the camera trained on the one in purple!!! Then the camera can be switched again and we can continue our conversation.

  5. every gurlfriend in the smartphone world is gonna want their boyfriends to download this app. it should be renamed “the boyfriend leash”!

    “If they accept the request it will open their camera so you get a live view of whatever their doing.”

  7. More phone app shenanigans that will help dudes send dong photos.

  8. … whatever *they’re* doing. You guys need a proof reader.
