Does Your FaceBook Picture Need a Tan? TanningBooth iPhone App Says Yes!

Reviewed by Jon Li

Price: $0.99

TanningBooth is a newly released iPhone app that aims to brighten your lives – so bright in fact, that you receive a complementary tan.

TanningBooth has one goal in mind; you guessed it! To change your pale, wintery skinned photo’s into post cancer, carcinogen infused sundipped orange, via the built in virtual bronzer.

After all, who would’nt want to pretend that their skin is oranger than it really is? I mean, the developer boasts that you can garner signifigant usage from this app by updating your Facebook and Twitter profiles with the newly rendered images. Ah, sit back, relax, and enjoy the onslaught of fans who would have previously passed by, but no, not now, not with that tan!


The developer, Basyboy, felt that $3.99 originally was a fair price – however, they have recently adjusted their stance and dropped the price by 75%  They now suggest that a $.99 fee for this app is a worthy investment. We, unfortunately, disagree.  There are a number of free online photo editors which will allow you to create your fake tan, should you so desire, and it just so happens, that the built in social media benefits of hoards of fans who were waiting for you to take your skin tone up a notch, will still be prevalent. In fact, they won’t be able to tell that you didn’t use the TanningBooth iPhone app to magically convert yourself into a sun god from the comfort of your couch.
