This page was translated using AI and machine learning.
(Pocket-lint) – TikTok is not for everyone. Some people have security concerns about the app, while others dislike it and never will. Its good. But if you want to create and share videos, especially short clips with filters, music, and other effects applied, you really can’t beat TikTok. Fortunately, there are apps that attempt to provide a similar experience. Here are some TikTok alternatives that are gaining traction in the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store.
Maybe one will be exactly what you want.
Web: dubsmash.com | iOS: dubsmash | Android: Dubsmash
Mobile Motion’s Dubsmash has been around for over five years now, with over one hundred million users downloading worldwide. It allows you to watch and create short 10 second videos. You can combine or “overwrite” the clips you create with pre-recorded sounds called dubs: shoot faces, invent new dances, lip sync lines from movies, whatever you want to do. You can even make custom dubbing recordings. Or, you can just explore different sections and streams to find videos that you like to watch.
Web: byte.com | iOS: Byte | Android: byte
Byte comes directly from the creator of Vine. Like Vine, it allows you to edit and share videos on a loop. You can edit footage you’ve recorded from within the app, or you can use the app’s built-in camera to shoot six-second videos, all of which can then be uploaded to your page. “Nostalgia is our starting point, but where we go next is up to you,” reads the app’s description in the Apple App Store. Byte also presents users with a stream of content from the people they follow, in addition to a page for finding new content.
Web: triller.co | iOS: Trill | Android: Trill
Triller is a simple app that lets you – whether you’re a famous artist or just the simple Joe – to create and share music videos. You can also use Triller for dancing, lip-syncing, and comedy, just like you can with TikTok. It offers more than 100 filters and editing tools. In fact, Triller uses AI editing technology that helps you instantly create multiple videos on a track of different lengths. In 2021, Triller would have had around 65 million users and 215 million downloads.
Web: funimate.com | iOS: Funimate | Android: Funimate
Funimate allows you to create and edit looping videos. Technically, it is touted as a way for young people to edit and share music videos. Full of advanced effects, filters and transitions in real time, you can use Funimate to draw over recordings, add lyrics, neon lights, as well as cut, crop and merge numerous clips. You can also use emoji, stickers, create your own effects, and participate in daily challenges. Funimate says it is number 1 on the App Store in over 100 countries.
Web: chingari.io | iOS: Chingari | Android: Chingari
Chingari is an Indian alternative to TikTok, with most of the music and dance videos. It feels a bit slow and awkward. But it reportedly added 300,000 users every hour and recorded more than 2.2 million video views per hour. It has a tile interface, with a separate game area where you can play quizzes to earn money. In terms of video creation, it has several filters and can add background music to videos. You can also set a timer and change the speed.
