Remember that one friend who said they’ll never get a TikTok? They probably have an account now.
Amid the coronavirus pandemic, people all over the world have found solace in TikTok. Many of them are posting funny videos, while others are doing their best rendition of a popular dance challenge (e.g. Doja Cat’s “Say So”). It truly is the Vine of this generation and we’re not complaining.
If you’ve had an account for a while, you’re probably thinking of ways on how you can make your TikToks better. Lucky for you, there are actually apps that will not only help you splice your videos, but also add stickers, text and other fun visual effects.
Make space in your phone for the following apps:
Timbre makes it easier for TikTokers to string together multiple video and audio files. This makes it easier for those who want to try making one-minute skits on TikTok. Available on Google Play.
Add a touch of nostalgia to your TikTok videos using Glitchy. This app has a collection of filters to give videos a vintage feel—there’s even a filter that makes videos look like VHS footage. Available on Google Play and App Store.
Many Instagram users are already using KiraKira+ to add a shimmering effect to their outfits. You can do the same with your TikTok videos, especially if you’re posting a makeup tutorial. It’s a good way to make your highlighter pop! Available on Google Play and App Store.
If you want to sound like T-Pain while doing a story time or rant TikTok, download Voloco which can add autotune and harmony effects. Voloco has a free beat library that you can sing or talk over, as well as tools to change the tune of your voice. Available on Google Play and App Store.
