Ever wondered what you’d look like as a blonde or with a nose ring? How about what a Picaso of your face might look like? If you answered yes to either of these questions, you’re in luck.
During our iPhone app review of Face Bender we found hilarity was just a touch away. The idea is simple. Use one of the basic faces included in the app, or use a photo from your camera roll, then go wild with the app’s editing features.
Voila! A terrifying, or oddly titillating, version of the face you started with. How much or how little you add to a face is up to you.
Use the app’s Wax Factory functionality to drag and drop facial features with the touch of your finger. Or, peruse the app’s sticker screens where you can find crazy colors, hair dos, piercings, mouths, ears and more to liven up your photo.
Additional functionality includes redo and undo options, a merge feature that permanently combines your layers, and the ability to flip, rotate and resize any sticker you add to the image for custom results.
But the best part of this app, by far, is the fact that you can save your insane facial creations to your camera roll to share. That means these crazy pics are gonna end up everywhere. You just found your next party trick app.
Using the Face Bender iPhone app is actually really easy. Once you have a photo cued up, it’s a matter of navigating a few simple on-screen buttons, all of which hang out on the peripherals of your screen for minimal space consumption.
If you’re confused about the input options simply tap the question mark in the upper right-hand corner of the screen and enjoy a tour of each button. A good help feature is always welcome and the Face Bender iPhone app’s is very nice.
All that face mashing technology can be your’s for the low price of $2.99. It’s not a bottom of the barrel price, but you are paying for an app that functions perfectly and delivers some pretty solid laughs. Paying a decent price also means no ads to mess up your flow.
Are there a few features this app could use? You betcha. How about a built in picture taking functionality? That would save users time and keep them from leaving the app to capture a new pic to edit.
Still, the Face Bender iPhone app is a lot of fun, so give it a try.
Face Bender iPhone app requires iOS 4.2 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. A small expedite fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
