Looking to boycott China? Here’s a list of non-Chinese Apps you can choose including some good Indian Apps
With the ever-growing drama around the most popular Chinese app-tiktok and the recent disturbing events at the Indian borders, the Indian population has been itching to boycott Chinese apps and products as it is increasing china’s currency and becoming a downfall for India. In the recent landmark move by the government of India, Indian Railways has cut ties with a Chinese company worth Rs 471 crore.
Infiltration of our Indian market:
However, the Chinese products and apps have infiltrated into the Indian market so deeply that it sometimes becomes difficult to find out which of our favourite apps are Chinese and which ones are not. But since our honorable prime minister has urged all of us to be more #atmanirbhar it has become our duty to turn away from apps and indulge ourselves in ingenous apps and products.
Not only are several people signing petitions to boycott these apps, they are also actively looking for alternatives to replace these apps with non-Chinese ones.
So, let us now take a look at some of the alternatives for a few popular Chinese Apps:
Firstly: Non-Chinese Sharing apps (SHAREit and xender)
As soon as sharing apps like SHAREit and xender were launched in the market they became an instant hit with the Indian audience as it could transfer big files within a few minutes. In January 2019 the most downloaded app in India after WhatsApp and Facebook was SHAREit.
Here is a list of apps with excellent reviews which are good alternatives for these two apps:
3. Share All(Indian)
Secondly: Non-Chinese shopping apps (ClubFactory, Shein)
Due to ever-growing demands of the increasing population, the supply of Chinese goods to India have also increased. As sites like ClubFactory, Shein provide goods at 50% to 60% below the price of normal Indian sellers, they have gained popularity among the young adults.60% of total revenue of club factory comes from India which is disappointing if you are looking to boycott Chinese shopping apps.
