Alternatives to TikTok

It has been mentioned in the press as of late that U.S. President Donald Trump is looking to ban the app TikTok due to its ties to China.

There were rumors that Microsoft was looking into purchasing TikTok and there has been no official word where the companies are in those negotiations at this time.

TikTok U.S. general manager Vanessa Pappas did make a statement on the matter, saying “We’re not planning on going anywhere.”

In the meantime, if you are concerned about the app getting banned in the U.S. and have already begun looking for a substitute, here are some options we have found:

  • Byte: This app was made by the creators of the Vine app. Just like Vine, the app enables its users to create six-second videos and share them on their video platform. Think of it as like Vine but with a different name because that is essentially what this is.


  • Instagram: It has been around for a while and most people probably know about it now. However, Instagram does have a video feature to the service and it does enable you to make and post videos right to the platform.


  • Dubsmash: It’s another app just like TikTok but with a little more, in terms of editing features and has a chat feature as well. Other than that, it is just like TikTok, just without the fear of getting banned in the U.S.

All of the apps mentioned here are free apps that are available in the App Store.

Are you going to be switching to any of these like-Tik-Tok apps in the near future? Let us know on Twitter at @appleosophy.
