Are you looking for an app that can instantly transform your face into something funny? Developed by Wireless Lab, Faceapp is available on both Apple’s App Store and Google Play and has gone viral. The app uses a form of artificial intelligence (AI) — known as a neural network — to scan faces and make them younger, older, a different gender, or more attractive.
It is really simple to use. Just select any photo from your gallery then apply the filter of your choosing, such as “old,” “young,” “female” or “male.” Users can create an image featuring two photos side by side, or a collage of up to four images.
This app is quite different from the filters we see on Snapchat and there are also two “smile” filters, which can add smiles to a selfie but the results are creepy.
Recently the app was criticized for an offending filter called “hotness” that was lightening skin tone but the company changed it to “spark” and apologized for hurting sentiments.
According to Applyzer.com, it is the number one free iPhone app in Australia and more than 20 other countries.
