Likee (formerly LIKE Video) is a video creation and sharing social media app. It bears similarities to Instagram and Pinterest, but it really stands out with its filters and effects.
Likee has a ton of features that Instragram users will already be familiar with. You can apply filters to videos, control who you share it with, and even save the video directly to your device.
You’re able to search for friends on the network, find videos by topic or hashtag, and explore the most popular posts in your region. It’s familiar enough to get used to, but with a few bonuses for content creation.
Makeup and effects
This is where Likee really shines. Video creation comes with filters, makeup masks, and facial effects. The UI here is intuitive, as each effect is clearly named and the slider is easy to grab.
You’re able to change your whole face with this app. You can grow your eyes, thin your face, or change the width of your nose. The effects here are subtle, so you never hit the uncanny valley.
As with most apps like Likee, it’s a battery hog and runs very slowly.
The UI is cluttered on the feed page. The tabs at the top don’t have enough space, and they feel shoved into place. This is where Likee could improve the most.
Well-made but slow
Likee has a lot of options for social butterflies to play around with, but the app needs an improved feed page. It could also do with optimisation on battery use.
