The free app can be downloaded from the Google Play Store and will be available to users in India and some other countries.
An Assam trio has developed a video playing and sharing app that they hope will be India's response to the banned Chinese ticket ok.
All the computer engineers from eastern Assam – Swati Kotoki, Amarjyoti Gautam and Himanga Madhukalya – told Mediapersons that their free app was primarily for entertainment and could be downloaded from the Google Play Store.
"It will be available to users in India and some other countries," Mr Kotoki said after launching the app in the eastern city of Jorhat on Saturday.
He said, "We came up with the app to provide a platform for people to showcase their talents in the fields of cooking, music, art and any other field."

The app has 12 categories and people can upload their videos that others can watch. Like Ticket OK, TipTapy allows users to make friends, follow, like, comment and share videos.
"But, unlike Chinese apps, our app is protected by privacy protection," Mr Gautam said, adding that they had the option to block videos if they received a complaint about uploading offensive and offensive content.
The trio said they came together in 2019 to create a start-up to develop apps. The COVID-19L downdown period focused them on entertainment-based applications.
The development took six months, TPP said.
