    "You cannot get a better integration on android with YouTube. YouTube is so native that it works flawless on any android device. I love the feature where you just get back to the part of where you left off. Let's say you are viewing a video and you had to go in the middle of it , when you get back it remembers where you left off and starts back right there. Also so much content its unbelievable ."

    "I had other apps for photo editing which I though were good until I discovered this one. This is amazing and very easy to use. Does many functions and allowed me to uninstall the three apps that I needed to cover what this one does. Easy to learn and useful for all skill levels."

    "One of the cooler things about Tik Tok is that there is a large number of people currently using the app who will potentially be able to see any music videos that are released. In terms of actually creating the videos, users are provided with a good selection of video creation and editing tools to take their pick from and although some of these tools can take time to learn, the fact that the app is available for free makes it worth a little effort.

    "I gave InstaSize a shot and it left me flat. The app does an okay job of light editing and you can do some collage effects, but I think that photo and video editing belongs on full size monitors, not mobile devices."

    "This application is fairly new and I think it has a lot of potential. It is also acceptable that there are som bugs and motion commands that aren't that good yet but overall I think this willl open new doors of opportunities for Instagram users such as myself because honestly I found it easy to use. It just needs improvement."
