App Review – Clapper
Threat Level – High
Well here we are. The time has come for all the copy cat apps to make their appearances. TikTok being one of the most popular apps on the market, so you know there will be companies coming after it with their own similar apps. That’s what brings us to this review on Clapper. Clapper for all mobile operating systems programmed by Clapper Media group for free. Once downloaded an account is still optional if you want to post, or comment.
I actually heard about Clapper while watching a TikTok video, how ironic. So I headed over to the AppStore to check it out.
So what is Clapper? As they describe themselves ….
Clapper is the fastest-growing social platform focused on providing local and global videos to all people. You can see the latest trends and people’s real lives as they unfold, as well as people’s opinions and talents. FREE to use, NO Ads, and real lives. Clapper also prides itself off user community relationships. So basically that means people are hoping they don’t ban and flag videos as quick as TikTok. This is yet to totally be seen, but from comments, Clapper seems to be doing well. Clapper is also selling that they have no ads, unlike the growing ads on TikTok.
You will recognize the format looking almost identical tik tok. So close in fact, I’m sure lawsuits are coming. Clapper does have an upvote button along with a down vote option. The other buttons (comments, share) are your normal TikTok styled options. The up and down voting of videos is also portrayed in this apps logo. Being an orange thumbs up and thumbs down image.
Parents should be careful about this one the same way as TikTok due to some sexually explicit videos and twerking. Make sure to navigate your child’s accounts to make sure they are not following people you don’t want them to be following. This is if you feel they are old enough to use. This app is rated for adults right off the bat, so use that as a hint that your kids might not need to use this one. Chat features along with some adult themed content and cursing should keep little ones away from this app until they get older.
Even though there are some funny videos, there are random in appropriate ones mixed in as well. Parents be aware! This one is for adults only. But your 16-17 year old will probably hit you up pretty hard for it once it goes viral. Use discretion advised!
