What Other Chinese Apps Are Taking The US And UK By Storm?

TikTok, the most popular free app in the US, has in recent days been making headlines for its alleged links to the Chinese Communist Party. But the platform is far from the only Chinese-owned mobile app to conquer Western markets. Analytics firm Apptopia estimates that another three of the top 10 free mobile apps in the US are also owned by Chinese firms. Two of them are also among the most downloaded in the UK. So what are these apps and what makes Chinese ones so successful? Capcut is a video editing app often pitched as a companion editor for TikTok content creators. Shein is another app for global fashion brand founded in 2012. What do you think LiveTribers? What other Chinese apps are taking the US and UK by storm?

    I've never used it. I hope it does off eventually.

    In my opinion, they're a waste of time. I don't use them

    I don't use apps but definitely would not want to use Chinese apps. I'm surprised the Chinese allow the Chinese to use Tik Tok?

    None I hope. They should all be banned from use in Australia.
