Vine was a popular short-form video app similar to Twitter. The free app could be used to share video clips that were six seconds long. The clips would loop, and other Vine users could view and comment. Twitter acquired the company in its early stages, but uploading and downloading via the app is no longer possible. Twitter has archived all the video clips previously shared while a new version of Vine is in development.

  • Easy to access the camera with just a tap within the LIKE app.
  • Video loading is pretty fast, even on slow networks.
  • The library of magical effects is really big, and there are fewer chances, you won’t find a particular effect within the library.
  • Easy to switch to the next or previous video with the swipe down and swipe up gestures respectively. You can even find other videos from the same user by swiping to right.
  • Users can go Live on the LIKE app, and the live video hardly lags on a decent internet connection. It is possible to send likes and comments, just as Instagram live.
  • You can even perform duet performance with other users for a particular video. That is pretty cool. But the final video will be posted on your account only.
  • You can share the videos you like on LIKE to any other third party social networks like Facebook, Instagram, and other places depending upon the apps installed on your device.
  • It is easy to upload videos from those present on your smartphone. You can even shoot videos with some music already present within the LIKE library.

  • There is no option to search for videos posted by other users on LIKE. That is something I expected from within the app.
  • Only one sticker or sticker effect can be applied to the video at a time. I wish there was provision for adding more sticker effects at the same time.
  • The size of the app is a little big, I would say. It is almost 120 MB on my device.
  • Most devices with smaller storage will struggle to keep this app after caching the videos to the internal storage.
  • I didn’t find any option to tag friends and users to a particular video. That is both good and bad at the same time. But I wish the option was available.
  • The duet functionality is good. But I wish there were options to make the duet functionality more interactive.
  • There are some obnoxious videos on the platform. I wish LIKE use AI or some moderation techniques to keep away such contents away from the platform and keep it clean and family-viewable. If not that, I wish such contents do not appear just after opening the LIKE app.

Bottom Line:

Like is video maker & community that youths around the world are playing with.

  • Videos start playing on opening the app. No hassles of searching for videos. Just sit back, open TikTok, and see curated content from all over the world.
  • Easy swipe gestures to move to the previous or next video or swipe left to visit the creator’s profile. This makes navigation really easy on TikTok, speaking from techy guy’s point of view.
  • Ability to sign up on the platform using Facebook, Instagram, Email, mobile number. Signing up will give you additional options and you can get a personalized experience of TikTok by signing up.
  • TikTok offers the option to search for videos on the platform using the dedicated ‘Search’ option located just beside the ‘Home’ button of the app. Users will be able to search for creators, sounds, hashtags or contents through this tool.
  • A lot of choices are available for dubbing. From the most popular dialogues to trending music of different languages, there is hardly anything that isn’t covered by TikTok aka. Musical.ly. This makes TikTok the perfect destination to brush up your dubbing skills.
  • There is also the option to add music from the handset’s local storage for dubbing. This can be helpful if your favorite music/dialogue is not available in the TikTok library.
  • The filters library on TikTok is really big. A different variety of filters are available to suit you with the video you want to shoot.
  • There are two sections in the TikTok app at the time of watching videos. You can either watch the videos handpicked by TikTok for you, and the other section is meant for watching videos from creators you follow. The ‘For you’ section, which handpicks videos on the basis of the user’s likeness is based on AI and works pretty well.
  • There are a lot of options to keep the privacy of a user intact. There are options to block users, limit getting messages from followers only, stop people from doing a duet and everything else. This actually gives a lot of power to control the privacy in the hands of the user.

  • TikTok offers a lot of videos from tons of creators across the globe. But there are some, where the background sound is not that important. I wish there was an option to mute the background sound after opening TikTok.
  • There is the option to add music or simply sound from the TikTok’s library, but I wish there was the option to add music from a single or multiple streaming services. I know that isn’t easy. But if such a provision was there, users could have moved from listening to pirated tracks to get access to their favorite music in an ethical way from popular streaming services.
  • It is pretty difficult these days to create video content from laptops or computers. It isn’t feasible as well. But I wish there was a web platform for users to view the contents, if not create them.
  • There isn’t an option to record the videos through TikTok and share it on different other platforms without posting it. I wish there was an option to share the videos from drafts.
  • I wish the time limit of a single video was a little higher. It is just 15 seconds now. I understand, such a time limit make the things better, but 20 seconds would have been better.

Bottom Line:

TikTok is pretty good at entertaining you and bringing you back to life if you are feeling monotonous.
