The ugly war of words between YouTube and TikTok stars over the last few, created an opportunity for an IIT student, who has now created a desi short video-making app. An IIT Roorkee student Shivank Agarwal has developed an Indian version of TikTok called Mitron. The app has gained massive popularity among Indian users with over 50 lakh downloads on Google Play Store.
The app is currently available for only Android users and can be downloaded from Google Play Store. The iOS version of the app is yet to be rolled out. However, with the rising popularity, the app could soon be made available for Apple users as well.
Things were so bad for TikTok that just a few days ago the app’s rating on the Play Store dropped to as low as 1.3 stars. This came after Indians started giving poor ratings to the app.
