AgingBooth iPhone app Review

Description:

Have you ever wondered what you would look like when you are old and gray?  What about your family or your friends?  Well with the AgingBooth iPhone app you might get a better idea of what that would actually look like.  This is a little app that allows you to age pictures that are located on your iPhone.  The transformation happens instantly when you shake your phone and then you can either send the results to your friends and family over email or you can post them on Facebook or Twitter.  You can do this with as many pictures as you would like to help you pass the time and get a good laugh!


Features:

  • This app works with either pictures that you have taken on your own phone, pictures you find on social networking sites like Facebook, and also anything else that comes from your library of photos
  • Another thing to remember with this app is that it works best if you pick people who are between the ages of 15 and 60.  If you pick anyone too young it will just look weird and if you pick anyone too old then it won’t have to change anything!
  • You can share any of your funny results with your friends and family through either email, MMS, or either Twitter or Facebook
  • If you find some results that you think are especially funny then you can always save them back onto your photo library so you can refer to them at a later point in time
  • Once you find a picture that you want to use then you simple use the auto cropping feature so that the app can find the face detection
  • You don’t need to be connected to the internet in order to for the app to work.  The process of transformation happens really quickly
  • Once you have brought in the picture you simply shake your phone in order to turn it from a young face into an older face

Conclusion:

This is a funny little app that will keep you busy laughing over what your friends and family might possible  look like when they are old and gray.  It does not guarantee that anyone will actually look like their renderings but gives you a fun idea of what it could be.  This is a fun way to spend a few minutes messing with people’s portraits.
