iPhone App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com
One of our favorite genres for the iPhone is the ye olden novelty application. You know the sort: They allow you to alter, create, or otherwise improve your daily life with a bit of humor. Today’s offering, an app called GlassMeApp, does exactly that—thanks to a little help from some quality spectacles. It makes it quick and easy to add a pair of glasses to you, your friends, your dog, or really anything else you’d like. If that sounds like a good time out, then go ahead and scroll below the break to view our whole review!
Concept and Functionality
As stated, GlassMeApp is most certainly a novelty app for the iPhone. We say that simply because we can’t think of a practical application for adding spectacles to you or your mates, though it must exist somewhere. However, we’re hardly complaining!
To get rolling with GlassMeApp, all you need to do is point the camera at your subject (which thanks to the front-facing camera can be you) and then get snapping! The app will automagically attempt to put a pair of glasses on your face. For the most part, it does this quite well, though you will likely still need to do some refining afterward. To manage this, just pinch, pull, push and otherwise manipulate the whole with your fingers. This allows you to get those glasses spot-on. The app also comes with a vast library of models to choose from, ranging from rather normal shades to some more elaborate, Elton John numbers. Over all, we liked it a lot, and if you have thirty seconds to spare, you can slap a few funny photos into your day.
Graphics and Design
We said that GlassMeApp comes with a vast compendium of spectacles to choose from, and this is true. However, some are certainly better than others. We found some edging issues with some of the graphics, as well as some a general sense of disparity in quality between the items. As future updates come along, though, we’re sure this will get ironed out.
In the in-between, we can hardly knock the application’s design or performance. It’s a very smooth item, and one that takes almost no time to maneuver. Literally, as we’ve mentioned, you can create a new hilarious photo in a matter of seconds to send to your family and friends.
At the end of the day, GlassMeApp is slightly higher priced than we might like, clocking in at just shy of two bucks. But though we’d like to see it for a dollar only, we’re contented with its price as-is. It’s still a value, and if you’re looking for a new novelty item to add to the fold, this is the one to go for. It easily earns a solid recommendation from us.
GlassMeApp requires iOS 5.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
