A Delhi student made smashdub an opposite verison of dubsmash app

Hi, I am Laavanye Bahl, studying Software Engineering at Delhi Technological University. In today's generation, you name a service and there's an app for it, but there are a very few light-hearted fun apps which exploit humour. Whenever I used to talk to my friends about my apps, I  got suggestions to make something for the youth, which is lively, cheerful, basically a leisure app for a past time.   So I wanted to develop something different than a game or service-oriented app: what our generation people wanted! I saw the exponential growth and boom of Dubsmash and one day it clicked to me! Why can't we just do the opposite ?? Take a sample video and just dub your voice.

Why the world needs Flatabout an app for flat reviews?

In 2014, after graduating from the YIF, I rented a flat in South Delhi with the help of a broker found through Housing.com. He took me to four houses, and I finalized the one that I liked the most. It was well ventilated, airy and independent. The landlord lived 50 km away in Greater Noida, and seemed least bothered about who was renting the house. Water and electricity seemed normal, the taps were working, fans were whirling. So I moved in with a truckload of goods (majorly books and clothes) accumulated over my seven years in Delhi. However, one day later, there lay a surprise in store. The house had an acute water shortage. The motor pumped water only when switched on early in the morning (4 am - 6 am). Moreover, the water tank for my apartment was shared with the flat at the ground ...
