RELEASE DATE(S): July 20th, 2011
Have you ever seen those wood walls with images on the front that you can stand behind and poke your head through? If you have, then FaceinHole will be familiar as it’s the same idea, but you have access to over 120,000 images instead of just one. Those wood displays are usually on boardwalks, and feature a muscular man or sexy woman. FaceinHole provides access to those as well as the chance to put yourself on an animal, cartoon character, a fat person, skinny person, and even FBI photo ID. There seems to be no limit what you can add your face to, and each one will make you laugh.
The app allows access to the camera or photo roll so you can take new photos or use old photos. Once you have the photo, its super simple to pinch and drag to adjust the size and tilt of the face so it aligns right in the photo. You can then save and share the photos, and go right back to creating another one. The results are instantaneous, and look as realistic as can be expected when adding your face to something that doesn’t look like you at all.
It’s great to play around with your own photos as well as ones with family and friends. There are also scenarios that let you add multiple photos, so you can share the laughs with more than just one person. The one constant, is that the results are always hilarious, and there are just so many scenarios to add your face to. There are a number of photo booth apps in the App Store, but none have as many possibilities. Once you start placing the photos, it’s tough to stop, and soon you’ll be working with all the faces you know in multiple scenarios. The app also provides categories and search to help navigate through all the different scenarios.
FaceinHole ($0.99, iPhone / $2.99, iPad) has the potential for nearly limitless laughs. It’s quite surprising how the humor lasts as you keep trying out new scenarios, and the more photos you have the more fun you can have. The app provides a super smooth interface allowing for quick insertion, fine-tuning, and producing a final result.
FaceinHole is a should buy for the price point that is the best photo booth style app in the App Store. There is also a free web version you can try.
