Watch your face-art with Everyday, iPhone’s new appby Shalu Pillai
Remember what you looked like six years ago? Most of us don’t need to be reminded how kind the years have been, but a quick flashback in a arty little video couldn’t be a bad idea. Noah Kalina, whose video “Noah takes a photo of himself every day for 6 years“, with nearly 19 million views on YouTube, has helped in the production of a new iPhone app called Everyday. Everyday is an app that allows you to take a picture of your face every single day. When you load up your first picture, you will be asked to align a grid to where you nose, mouth, and eyes are, allowing your face to be in the same position everyday. And there’s also an overlay photo mask of your original face picture (which can be switched on and off) to help you align your face. Once you’ve compiled multiple pictures of your face – this can be done over days, weeks, months or years — you can create your own face-video with one click (including setting the video speed), then share it on Facebook, Flickr, Tumblr, or Twitter for the world to see your drastic or mild transformation.
A key feature is the alert system, which allows you to set a time each day to get a Push Notification, so that you don’t forget to take your picture. Priced at $1.99, it’s a must-buy. Of course, while you track your own ‘development’, I reckon it’ll make a fab idea to track your child’s face development too, esp. with your new born – now that would be a video worth watching! Wotsay?
