In view of national security concerns, the government has banned 59 Chinese apps including Q-Talk. After which, the Indian app-Chingari, the only alternative to tick-talk, has received tremendous love from the people. This app has been downloaded by 3 million people so far.
The Chingari app was created by Bangalore-based programmers Biswatma Nayak and Siddharth Gautam last year, running the app at the top position on the Google Play store.
Nayak said, ‘Since Indians needed a platform like desi and tick-talk at this time, we are trying to live up to their expectations. The Spark app is setting a new benchmark, with a lot of investors showing interest in our app. We will give this platform free service to the society. ‘
Industrialist Anand Mahindra never used Tic-Talk, but he downloaded it while backing this native app. He tweeted, “More strength to you.”
Spark allows users to download and upload videos, chat with friends, chat with new people, share content, and browse through feeds. The app is available in English, Hindi, Bengali, Gujarati, Marathi, Kannada, Punjabi, Malayalam, Tamil and Telugu languages.
