User reviews affect conversion to installs and app rating. Featured and helpful reviews are the first to be noticed by users and in case of no response can affect download rate. This is why it is highly recommended to reply to them.
I’m so happy that I’m “back in the loop!” 🤪 Seriously though, byte has the potential to bring back all the fun and feels that we had with Vine. I say potential because there are a couple things that I feel need improvement. First, I didn’t understand that the lightening bolt was where we can view comments & who is following us. Second, I don’t understand the rating system in my stats. I’d prefer this experience to not be a contest of sorts. I think that could take away from creativity and just having fun. One more thing; because of the framing of uploads (i.e., portrait mode), it’s a bit to, “in your face” and not all videos fit/fill the space properly. I’m more fond of landscape mode as it’s easier on the eyes and more realistic I suppose. Anyhoo, this is why I gave a 4 star instead of 5. I’m sure when all the bugs are worked out and such, I’ll be back to update my review. 🙂
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.
I absolutely adore this app. I know we all want what Vine gave us back in the day but it’s in the past. Nostalgia is not your friend but, Byte will be. This is innovative. This is growth. This is what the people have been chanting for. This app has a great community of creators who are passionate and very supportive of one another. The bytes really showcase the variety of talents the internet has to offer from Comedy to 3D Art to Singing to Memes! It has so much to give. I certainly love how consistent the updates of this app is and how the developers have created a forum in which the byte community can chat amongst each other and with them. It certainly takes out the feeling of being a dollar sign that you get with other apps. If you’re looking for some good ol’ laughs or ready to be amazed then come join the app and forums! Great place, 10/10 would eat here again.
This is great! I wasn’t around for vine and this definitely fills the void I had in my heart. I love the idea that you can’t see anyone’s follower count but your own, that’s really original and I think makes the app more useful just to have fun and make content. However, just a couple of critiques: 1) I want to know who I’m mutuals with! Whether this entails letting creators see a list of who’s following them or simply seeing like a “friends” icon if you go to a mutual’s profile, that would be great. 2) Maybe integrate a liking comments system? Most media platforms have that and it helps the comments section be more streamlined and gives bots/self-promo less power. Other than that I love the simplicity of it! An app doesn’t need hashtags or filters or effects or anything like that, it really makes making content less stressful.
My opinion on byte is that it is more like vine than tiktok and less like at the same time. Byte is the vine based 6 second looping video. It also is like vine as I don’t rember vine having any trends, it was just post random things you thought were funny. Tiktok has obvious tends that fade out in a month or two. I am a little confused about the user friendliness as you cannot abuse the video. That could be great if you could. The comment section is about as bad as it gets. There are no comments it’s just “FOLLOW FOR FOLLOW LIKE FOR LIKE” and I know that’s not really something they can control. As one reviewer said “this runs off of being the anti tiktok and new vine.” The videos on Every page are the same and you can’t refresh whether you on the home page, popular page or the your mix page. I don’t think that this will overtake tiktok as tiktok is now such a big app. My opinion is I’m going to stick with tiktok as I see the content there as better.
a video app organized around communities. Find your thing and share the world as you see it.
