Dubsmash is an entertaining mobile app that enables users to record themselves saying popular phrases and send the video to their friends.
While not a true social network, in the sense that Dubsmash does not have a UI for users to post their videos on, Dubsmash enables its users to share their videos on Facebook’s Messenger app as well as Whatsapp and their text messages. The app has hundreds of various phrases that are placed into categories for users to imitate and put their own spin on. Categories include Chick Flicks, Musicals, Superheroes and Villains, Cartoons and Comedy among many others.
Once users go through the available phrases they simply choose one in order to be taken to the recording screen. Once users reach the screen they will see themselves, as the app uses their phone’s front facing camera, as well as a graphical representation as to how the phrase’s vocal inflections should be said.
