It was only a matter of time before an app came along and shook us out of our Dubsmash haze.
LiPP allows users to dub their own voices over clips, rather than lip-syncing to Dubsmash’s soundboard of TV, movie, and song samples—as long as the clip is 15 seconds or shorter. It’s sort of like the Mystery Science Theater 3000 of apps.

Students across the pond are enraptured, and we’re guessing American teens will be soon.
When you should be working towards getting your degree but instead you’re fannying about on Lipp app dubbing your voice over videos

Celebrities have co-opted Dubsmash. Will they make the transition to LiPP, which is less about showing the world you’re just like us or that you know how to lip-sync and more about adding crass dialogue and fart noises to Frozen?
