    it's okay for now but I expect more people will be coming soon and its a little difficult to do some things. i.e. when scrolling through my mix, I find that sometimes the sound from the last video plays. or videos stop halfway through and even when you play it again they stop in the same spot. using sounds is a little confusing but I think I got it and adding text overlays is a little annoying. I've only had it for a day, these are my notes and I hope it helps.

  • Just a few suggestions from GENZ❤️ Jul 10, 2020

    By wxirdnoel
    The app is AMAZING. But I have a few suggestions. Allow people to reply UNDER the comment they want to reply too so it’s not confusing. Allow us to dm eachother. Let us have duets. And make some of the flitters look like tiktok. And also allow us to be able to record for more than 15 seconds. Add more song that are popular and when people make a video with no song in it let us still us it. I promise you if you do these things your app will become VERY popular. Allow us to see how many likes we have and put it on the side than putting it on the bottom of the screen. Allow people to go live on the app. you can keep the logo and everything. AND BTW. This not me saying I hate your app because I actually laugh at the content it’s just we need are famous and brilliant tiktokers to come on this app and feel comfortable. Trump has been messing with tiktok and I just hate the fact that he did that. But I’m order for things to get better is is my suggestions and I pretty sure people would agree with this new change that we are asking for. WE WILL BE SO. SO. Thankful and happy that we have an back up app just in case the app gets deleted. Thank you for you time. From- fellow tiktoker from genz To - Amazing Creator of Byte.

  • this app can be the new tiktok Jul 16, 2020

    By vegan simp sufjan stevens
    there's so much potential here in this app. i think tiktok's meteoric rise kind of overshadowed this app's creation, but to be fair who could've predicted tiktok's popularity. this app is functionally the same format as tiktok, but there are some neat new features like profile theme colors and color-changing text (and IT WON'T MINE YOUR DATA LIKE TIKTOK which is rad and the best of all). there's still room for improvements and new editing tools, but if you're a potential new Byte user i'm urging you to give this app time. you can move your old tiktoks over to this platform in the meantime to preserve your account and all the work you've done, and you can use other editing software in the meantime to make up for some of the features you miss right now. the Byte devs have a huge incentive to meet the needs of its new audience, so offer helpful suggestions and give them time to get things rolling. this is a much safer platform, and it has the potential to surpass tiktok once users start to move. give it some time, be patient while you warm up to the new platform, and work with the development team to make Byte the best platform it can be. all the ingredients for success are here already, and any desired features that it currently lacks can be added if we're vocal and patient.

    people are saying the app is not exactly like Tiktok, but it’s not supposed to be. it’s byte, things are going to be different. i think it’s amazing and the community is really friendly. i’ve made more genuine connections on this up in the past five days than I did on TikTok in the past two years. one of my favorite things about the app is how you can’t see how many followers one person has, and how many people they follow. it gets rid of the toxic competition that a lot of social media apps have. the byte team has accounts on the apps and they interact with people there, it makes the app so much more welcoming. (we love you dom :,)) A lot of people moved from tiktok to byte in the past week and the creators have already done so much to accommodate to us when they most definitely didn’t have to. the creators listen to our feedback and interact with us almost daily. the app isn’t perfect but i can tell the creators are doing a lot for us behind the scenes so if you guys see this review, thank you <3 sincerely, balsamic

    It requires a Google account. For myself, that isn't too bad but I know others who would disapprove. And for adding text onto a video, it kind of bugs out and doesn't let me use mu autocorrect or autopredict which both always aid me in typing on my phone. I'm sure that will be fixed though, along with whatever other issues I have yet to discover.

    the newest update is... bad. my Following feed is now full of bytes from accounts/channels that I don't follow. my guess is that they just no longer say "rebyted by x", but it feels like I suddenly have waaay less control over my feed. also, rearranging the like & comment buttons to knock off the tiktok layout...? I guess I can live with it, but it just feels weak, man. there was nothing wrong with the old layout & this new one accomplishes nothing that the old one didn't.

    September 14th, 2020 - STILL cannot sign in with Apple ID!! The developers IGNORE users. Missing lots of basic features and has a broken account system. Created your account with an Apple ID on iPad and want to log in on your Android? Well, you can NEVER sign into that account on Android, apparently. The developers never thought about that one?!

    No "guest" usage. Requires a Google account to login. So far the application is totally usable, since I can't get past the initial screen. There's a big market for a Tictoc replacement, but this application blocks people from trying it out. Really weird design decision.

  • Rad App for creativity and collaboration Jan 27, 2020

    By Shellter
    Byte is bringing back the six second loops but going above and beyond this time by creating a community where you are involved and engage with the creators and developers via an open to all community forums website. It’s very cool to give the users a voice, but more importantly... even cooler to see the process of the app evolve with complete transparency. Im talking about an app that actually cares about you and listens to you instead of just accumulating and selling all of your information while simultaneously trying to bombard you with ads. With so many options for social media platforms these days it’s refreshing to have an app that is stripped down to the basics encouraging the users to actually get creative! I’m always blown away at the talent that can come from a six second video and it’s incredible to see how that 6 second video can inspire others and then evolve into something bigger. I’m excited to see what the future holds for Byte. I believe that it will be a great success.

    Ok so I, like many others, came from tiktok and I am trying to figure out how this app works and trying to find the “alt” users or whatever. Some things that I like about this app is how no creators are really big on it so it feels so much more personal and people on this app are so nice. Another thing I like is how you can’t see follower count. It takes the focus off of how many followers you have and makes it more about the content you create and how you interact with others. I think that some audios should be added and we should be able to use other creators audios and I also think that there should be better filters. I don’t want this app to be just like tiktok however because the way it is now is so beautiful and if it were just like tiktok it would easily become a very negative space. I think that it’s kinda cool how the videos are shorter because it kinda gives a vine twist to the app. Overall I am really enjoying it so far! 🐍🦎🐀

    I love this app but I have run into a few issues. First of all, sometimes the video simply wont play and I believe that is because there are little pieces from other videos on my screen that interfere. Secondly, I run out of things to look at and I would like a larger "your mix" page. Lastly, the follows and likes do not sinc up well and when you go to someone's page to check it out if you liked the video you came through it does not show, the same sometimes occurs with the following check mark

    The app is really great but there's definitely ways to make it better. Adding sound and using it would be really nice, and messaging, maybe even group chats would be really great and unique. Also drafts, editing the videos, filters, pinned comments,stories. One thing i have noticed is that the app is a bit slow after I use it more than 30 minutes. The app is really great, I'm looking forward to new interesting updates and using the app!

  • It’s ok for now but change needs to happen lol Jul 9, 2020

    By Landenrk
    So as we all know tik tok is potentially getting banned. hate that. there are things i like about the app and things i don’t like. For 1 we need to be able to add audios and current music, and use other people’s sounds. 2 make the recording button on the app better, it’s kinda difficult to function at times. 3 the whole set up needs organized better with the “mix page” and the “following page”. 4 you may want to add in filters to the app because with a lot of tik tokers moving to this app the demand for filters is going to be astronomical. 5 organize the hashtags and out pages better. 6 allow us to see how many followers someone has and how many likes they have. 7 make the page easier to interact with, pausing the video, seeing how many views, likes and comments. otherwise this app is ok and needs improvement for this app to get big and maybe even change the name i don’t know.

  • Good But Room For Improvement Jul 9, 2020

    By 13evan12
    First thing i noticed when trying to make a byte is that you can only make your video 16 seconds long, personally i feel it needs to be way longer, for example, 45 seconds or even 1 minute 30 seconds. Another thing that throws me off is that you can’t see the amount of followers and the amount of total likes they have, which seems like a crucial part to have. I also don’t really understand how to use/add sounds which is one of the most important things. Lastly you can’t like comments which just takes away a feels from the comments, because you really basically have to read all of them to see which comments are the best. Also make some other slight improvements and this add could really be something, like for reason i feel addicted already, but as for now I know I won’t be making content myself for the reasons i stated above! 4 Star app!

  • Needs Improvement Jul 8, 2020

    By sockaroni
    Like many other people, I am moving to this app because of the looming threat of our precious app, Tiktok, being taken away. I’ve been perusing this app for about half an hour now and I have some major critiques. Obviously it is not the same as Tiktok, however it appears very similar. That being said, there is no way to view someone’s follower count or their total likes. The absence of liking comments, in my opinion, is very disheartening, and takes away from the enjoyment of the app. Perhaps the biggest issue I have though, is that there seems to be no way to add audio. When I go to record a video, I can’t add music. As someone who likes to create content about the progress of my art, I feel music is very important because I don’t always have things to talk about in my videos. I’m aware that the same people who created Byte also created Vine, but I think the inclusion of being able to add audio to videos with ease would significantly impact my enjoyment of the app. Of course, there are many minor things that can be changed, but the biggest thing for me would be to add an easy way to add audio to videos.

    I love this app 😍❤️. But there are a few problems. 1 Poor video quality. You might be thinking it's your phone WRONG. When I record videos on the app it messes up the recording of the sound though this isn't really a big problem because I can record of app. 2. This is why the app rating suffers. I can't watch the videos on the app. So that makes the app pointless. Luckily I can watch some videos but not to many. It's a shame really but if you can fix it this would be great

    The app is great and all, but it could use aome upgrades. For instance, it's a 50/50 chance on whether the video will play or not. It's also got a problem of not showing liked videos; i'd love to see these fixed. I'd also like a feature that lets you bookmark audios from other bytes to use in your own videos if you choose. Thanks for the app, btw!

    Right now I give it 2 stars because I see it has potential but I have to record a video first and then add sounds. That makes it impossible if you want to be on beat. Also, there's no way to search for songs and there seems to be no real songs on there only beats people have added. I just want to play a song while I'm recording a video or at least be able to search for it so I'm not scrolling through hundreds of little circle icons or guessing on the timing =(

    I'm having a lot of bugs pop up. Uploading videos is an absolute mess and crashes the app about 1/3 of the time. When I try to watch my own videos it kicks me out of them before they finish or says something about a server failure. Also lacking some really needed features. We need to be able to make a video out of photos, as well as be able to search music by category.
