GUWAHATI: After the giant social media battle between YouTube and Tiktok, a new app has gained popularity among netizens coming forward to boycott “All things Chinese”.
The new _‘Swadeshi’_ movement has inspired a Jaipur based Indian startup called One Touch Applabs to create an app called the ‘Remove China Apps’, which is available on Google Playstore.
The app rated 4.8 stars out of 5 on the mobile appstore identifies all chinese mobile applications. Over 1 lakh people have already downloaded the app which facilitates removal of chinese apps detected in one’s smart phone.
The app when downloaded, scans all applications in the user’s smartphone and lists out chinese apps which the user can then delete from the phone.
Meanwhile, Tiktok’s ratings on the Google Playstore, which had dropped down to 1.2 stars after the brawl, has now gone up to 4.4 after Google passively helped improve the average rating of the app.
The YouTube star Ajey Nagar a.k.a Carryminati’s advocacy for the content creation platform had earlier taken a toll on the Chinese video-sharing social networking service.
