    "If you are looking for a more widely known video sharing platform, you are not going to find one. Youtube offers you all of the tools and you need to take your videos and turn them into films that can be enjoyed by a audience of your choosing, or you can make them public for everyone to see. All of this is done through a very easy to navigate interface. Great platform for sharing your products."

    "Like ProShot, Camera Cardboard is an Android imaging application that has been around for quite some time. Initially, this application is quite primitive and does not have many outstanding features, but after several updates, Camera Cardboard has become one of the best Android photography applications today. Camera cardboard supports the modes such as landscape shot, Live Shot mode ... and especially the image editing tools after shooting. "

    "I love this app! There are a lot of options for the videos you make which makes it a lot of fun. I love that you can add music and loop the videos themselves. I can easily share my videos to social media platforms that I use and my friends really seem to enjoy them. The install is quite easy, it doesn't take up a lot of room on my phone and doesn't slow it down at all. There are a wide variety of videos you can make with the app which makes it really entertaining. "
