TikTok App Review
TikTok is a global video community powered by music. Whether it’s dance, free-style, or performance, creators are encouraged to let their imagination run wild and set their expressions free. Designed for global creators, TikTok allows users to quickly and easily create unique short videos to share with friends and the world.
- Videos start playing on opening the app.
- Easy swipe gestures to move to the previous or next video or swipe left to visit the creator’s profile.
- Ability to sign up on the platform using Facebook, Instagram, Email, mobile number.
- 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.
- A lot of choices are available for dubbing.
- 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 privacy in the hands of the user.
Users don't like:
- 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.
- Users with the time limit of a single video was a little higher. It is just 15 seconds now.
Why to choose/Best for:
- A lot of effects, filters, and other elements are available to create your own content and share it on the platform to earn fame.
- It offers the ability to record videos with popular music and dialogues being played in the background for extra fun.
- It offers the ability to save the videos recorded, as drafts, and upload other video contents from the local storage.
- Thousands of videos of different categories are available on the platform, making it the perfect entertainment platform for most people, who are used to Facebook.
