High potential

I was recruited to this app from being seen on a different platform I’m a creator on. I enjoy having an app that focuses on freedom of speech, politics, point of views- things that a lot of viewers don’t want to see on other apps. This app gives the ability to create content on these topics that others can engage with. On my other platforms my content isn’t based around content like this. Those apps aren’t created for those topics that this app is specifically for. I enjoy to step away from my other content and have the ability to share my thoughts/beliefs on here. I enjoy having a like and dislike option. The reason I give 4 stars is for 2 things I dislike. 1- the quality of a video I create and shared onto here is horrible! Video quality seems like “GIF” quality. 2- I will receive a notification, but I can’t get my feed to update when I try to look at comments/likes.
This app has a lot of potential moving forward. I honestly wouldn’t of known of this app unless I received a message.

Could be better

It’s a really good app platform and simple to use. Very similar to TikTok. Wish it would let us delete our notifications once we’re done with them and let’s us adjust the settings on what content we don’t wish to see so the FYP doesn’t just show repetitive subject content. Also a Pro level and maybe monetization offer would be great. In other words, another version of TikTok! 👍🏻And for those complaining about the political content, you clearly didn’t read the prior reviews and info on what this app was truly intended for. With new folks joining the app, comes different content, so in the mean time, just keep scrolling, just keep scrolling...

Awesome app

I honestly think this app is awesome... there are negatives to it but overall I think it’s a great app... some things I would recommend is adding more stuff that’s different from tik tok... Something that makes it awesome compared to tik tok... when it’s similar to Tik tok all you do is compare it to tik tok and that’s not always the best... here are some of my suggestions that might be cool... it’s my opinion so some of them are stupid... 1. Maybe you can make a leaderboard of the top people who have the most followers, you can also maybe do this for the likes, and top shared videos, all types of different categories. I think this idea could be awesome bc I’ve never really seen it anywhere else in a app like this.. I don’t have time right now to finish so this is all I’m writing... but I definitely recommend this app to everyone!!!
