Mango Apps: Funny Faces (Augmented Reality)October 14, 2011 No Comments
With the Windows Phone 7.5 update smoothly rolling our across the world. We are starting to see more and more apps that are stricktly just for Mango flavored devices. Funny Faces is a brand new one in the marketplace and it uses augmented reality to overlay hilarious items on a persons face. Just point the phone to someone like you were taking a picture and it magically produces things like mustaches, afros, sunglasses masks, etc.
The app is free to try but the full version costs .99 cents
Get a new dimension of what you see and how people look through your phone’s camera with real-time Augmented Reality. Save or share those moments directly on Facebook and Twitter. It’s fast, it’s easy and a ton of fun. Augmented Reality, the funny way.
The app uses the phone’s camera to automatically detect faces which are overlaid in real-time with a funny mask, an afro, a mustache, a pacifier, shades, a space helmet, a hat or evenÂ the head of a monkey or Chuck Norris and more.
Everything is done in real-time only with the data from your phone’s camera.Â You can save a snapshot of the augmented scene to the phoneâ€™s pictures hub and send it via email or share it directly on Facebook and Twitter from within the app.
Funny Faces supports the landscape and portrait orientation. Funny Faces has a great user experience, is very responsive and let’s you focus on your fun. The trial version has a couple of overlays enabled and even the share and save functionality can be tested once.
We will provide more overlays and effects with subsequent updates. Please send us your suggestions and we are also happy to help you if you encounter problems. Please provide your feedback via the app’s integrated functionality since it’s not possible to reply to Marketplace reviews.
