There’s a new music video app taking over the App Store.
It’s called Like, and it combines Musical.ly-like videos with augmented reality effects, to create what the app’s creators call “music magic.”
On its surface, the app is a lot like Muscial.ly or Dubsmash or number of other social music video apps. Users pick a song — the app features popular songs you can use as soundtracks for your creations — and record videos that can be shared within the app or elsewhere on social media.
What makes Like different than a lot of other apps is that it’s loaded with special effects you can use to transform your videos. There are Snapchat like face filters and voice changing effects, but there is also an impressive array of augmented reality effects.
The app’s “4D Magic” effects lets you transform the video for your background into something totally new. You can add simple animations — like bubbles or twinkling stars — or big explosions an exact moment in your video.
Or you can change your background — so your kitchen suddenly becomes the surface of the moon — face swap, and add other “magic effects.”
The app’s combination of a library of popular music, special effects, and easy to use interface has already proved to be a hit. The app recently reached the App Store’s top 10, after spending several weeks as one of the top photo and video apps.
