Once you’ve downloaded this app, you can choose to either take a photograph within the app or choose one from your photo album. The object is to edit the facial image to create a caricature.
The app is very simple to use and when you have your image on the screen the first step is to align the eyes. Just move the R and L symbols until they are in the correct position.
Then you need to adjust the shape of the eyes, you do this in a similar way to the face adjustment above.
You can then adjust the size of the nose in the same way.
Finally, just do the same with the lips.
When you’ve completed those steps, you will be presented with an image incorporating your changes, similar to the above.
From here you can personalise the character more by adding and shapping hair, glasses and clothing.
The final choice for the body currently only presents an adult male or female, as you can see here we selected the adult male.
From here it is then possible to share it with Facebook and Twiitter or via email.
This is an excellent and very fun app that we will will only improve with age, and further updates. Although it is possible to expand the choices of options with in-app purchases, it would be nice to see a few more free additions made available.
