Great alternative to TikTok if you cosplay

I, as well as many other cosplayers, have been getting pretty frustrated with TikTok as of late, but thanks to the suggestion of a peer, many of us are beginning to transition to Dubsmash instead. I know that many cosplayers (including myself) are currently using both apps for our content as the app grows, but I feel very confident that Dubsmash and cosplay have a bright future together.

The highest point of praise that I can give to Dubsmash is that the devs actually LISTEN to their user base. You can look through the other reviews and see how responsive they are. In the past, they’ve always been quick to respond, and have added features as their users suggest them, while many people believe that TikTok doesn’t listen to their user base at all.

I agree with many of the suggestions my peers are adding such as the ability to save drafts to edit or post at a later time, the ability to make video replies to comments, more filters, the ability to pause, etc. While many of these seem to be trying to turn Dubsmash into a TikTok replica, they are very important features that are keeping many folks on the fence about switching apps entirely. Regardless, I have faith in the dev team to help the app grow and add whatever features they believe would be best.

Great App, there’s just one immediate issue

This app is great. You can crest duet and with a little digging you can find content you’ll enjoy. The app developers are clearly working hard and LISTENING TO THIER USERS which is probably the best aspect of the entire app.
There are a couple issues I’m sure the developers of the app are working hard to fix like: underaged (below 14) kids on the app, trending page to user interest, the glitches the app tends to have and the limited time sounds have. All of these things I’ve seen mentioned in other reviews. However there is only one issue that I believe should be looked at soon:

There is no draft system.

As a cosplayer the ability to save videos to an app before posting is a life saver as I cannot get into costume everyday and I tend to stock up on drafts to post throughout a period of time.

I know about 20 people from the cosplay community on tiktok who would like to move over to this app and there are probably many more who would if a draft function was added.

Overall this app has AMAZING potential to flourish and thrive against tiktok. And I would like to personally thank the developer team for listening to the users to improve the app.

I hope I can see more cosplay content on there soon but for now the app should be used casually and as a back up if you make content in advance to post later.

4 Stars

I, as well as many others, got dubsmash as an alternative to tiktok. I deleted tiktok because tiktok has been stealing tiktokers information. Once I got on Dubsmash I realized it wasn’t that different then tiktok and I won’t have a hard time using this app! I put 4 stars instead of 5 for a combination of 2 reasons. First the way you upload videos is strange. If you use your own sound you have to upload the audio first which I thought was kind of weird. After uploading the audio you can then make a video with that audio. My problem is it doesn’t allow me to upload videos from my camera roll. My second reason is that there is soooo much hate. It’s not as bad as tiktok, but it’s definitely there. I am a cosplayer and I followed a few cosplayers so I would have the same feed I would if I was still on tiktok. And then I went to the comments.... I don’t understand how people can be that cruel without feeling guilty?!?! I opened dubsmash to a variety of TEN YEAR OLDS throwing it back, and those same ten year old were putting people down for what they love. Honestly this isn’t dubsmash as an apps problem, but I feel like as a community we can bring the hate to a minimum.
