Many companies have realized that some of the best businesses take an existing model and hyper focus on a specific niche or a focused value proposition.  Examples of this can be found with ride-share applications (Uber, Lyft), dating applications (Hinged, Tinder, Bumble, etc), and social media applications.

If you’re reading this article, it’s likely that you are looking to create the next biggest social mobile application that’s similar to the famous TikTok application.  If that’s the case, you’re in luck!   A TikTok like application can be created by any development team that has their heart set on it; however, there is more to TikTok than meets the eye.
