Advanced video editing and social media
TikTok's biggest strengths are its advanced video editing tools and its social media features. The video editing tools provided allow you to speed up, slow down, pause and unpause, and add filters and special effects to videos from within the app. Creative individuals can create very impressive videos within TikTok.
Once your video has been made, TikTok's range of social media features allow you to easily send and share videos with your friends, with the potential for them to go viral. The top videos of TikTok can easily reach millions of views within hours of being posted.
Add your favourite music and backing tracks
In addition to its large suite of video editing tools, TikTok also allows you to easily add music clips to your videos from a choice of millions of curated playlists from genres such as hip hop and EDM to rock, rap, country and plenty more.
TikTok takes care of music licensing for you, which means that you don't have to worry about the sound being muted or your videos being demonetised, which can be a problem for smaller video creators.
Be endlessly entertained
TikTok is not simply for video creators. TikTok is also a great app for inspiration. You can customise and control the content you see while browsing TikTok based on who you like and follow. You can easily find content catered to your niches and be endlessly entertained with hours of video content tailored to your likes and preferences.
TikTok hosts content on topics as broad as gaming, comedy, DIY, food recipes, sports, and plenty more. With such a large user case, there is new content for virtually any and all topics being added on a daily, or even hourly, basis.
Create, share or watch creative short-form videos
TikTok is a very popular social media app centred around creating and watching videos. What sets it apart from other competitors such as YouTube and Instagram is its emphasis on short, 15-seconds or less clips created and edited within the app.
The rich suite of video editing tools and the plethora of backing tracks provided makes it easy to create fun, catchy video clips. The social sharing tools make it easy to share those clips with friends, family members and the wider public. These all combine to create an app full of fast-paced, fresh and dynamic videos.
