Ramailo: Nepali-Owned App Ready to Replace TikTok

In a significant development for the Nepali digital landscape, ‘Ramailo,’ a homegrown mobile app for short videos, has been unveiled, providing a distinctive platform for investment and activism by Nepali youth. With TikTok facing a ban in Nepal and concerns over data security due to VPN usage, Ramailo aims to be a secure and indigenous replacement for the popular short video app.

Idea Jar Digital, an information technology company operating in Nepal since 2019, spearheads the initiative, offering a range of features such as video watching and uploading, content exploration, liking, commenting, sharing, and live streaming. Notably, the company plans to reward content creators based on the popularity and uniqueness of their content, contributing to the app’s appeal among aspiring creators.

Short video platforms have witnessed a surge in popularity globally, and with Ramailo, Nepali users now have a locally developed alternative to foreign apps. The company is optimistic about the app’s reception among Nepali users, providing a familiar and culturally relevant space for creative expression.

Amid challenges in regulating global social media giants, Idea Jar Digital emphasizes the ease of regulating a platform developed by a Nepalese company. The recent ban on TikTok in Nepal has created an opportune moment for Ramailo to emerge as a favored platform, promoting social harmony and local innovation.

The press note from the company underscores its commitment to ensuring the app operates within legal frameworks. Any disorderly or illegal activities during video production will be addressed collaboratively with the government, aligning with regulatory standards.

Responding to user feedback, the company highlights ongoing efforts to enhance the app’s features, ensuring an engaging and enjoyable user experience. Designed for citizens aged 13 and above, Ramailo’s accessibility aligns with diverse age groups.

Currently available on the Google Play Store, Ramailo aims to extend its reach further by making the app accessible to iPhone users through the App Store in the coming days. As a testament to the evolving digital landscape in Nepal, Ramailo stands poised to carve its niche as a preferred platform for short video content, reflecting the vibrancy and creativity of Nepali youth in the digital realm.
