  • Easy to use with a simple and bright design.
  • Social video sharing app with 60-second tutorials across several categories including art, beauty, cooking, decor, DIY and lifestyle.
  • Easily pause, rewind and fast-forward videos to view tutorials at your own pace.
  • Tap “Try It” to share a photo of your finished recipe or project using the tutorial.
  • Easily bookmark videos to save for quick recall.
  • Browse the “Try It” Gallery to see pictures of what the community has made and what works.
  • Follow your favorite creators and build an audience of your own to share your best short DIY videos.
  • Creators with more than 100 followers can post longer videos (up to two minutes).
  • Video uploader includes plenty of details to make your content highly searchable.
  • Potential traffic driver. Creators can include a clickable weblink to allow the viewer to quickly access a full recipe or blog post outside Tangi. This is a key differentiator compared to popular platforms such as Instagram and TikTok.
  • Generate a QR Code or easily share videos via text and social platforms including Facebook.
  • Quickly and seamlessly sign up with a Google login.


  • At the time of this review, users must apply to become a Tangi creator or have an invitation code to create content.
  • The video uploader can be slow.
  • Compared to other social video apps, Tangi appears to have less content available.

Bottom Line: Currently a cross between TikTok and Pinterest, Tangi is ideal for creators and anyone seeking DIY in-spiration. If you already produce short-form videos, consider securing a username and watching how the app develops over time.
