(i)

 

Silly photo editing is limited but fun and easy to use.

What parents need to know

Ease of play

This app is extremely user-friendly. Users simply take a photo with their device's built-in camera and can then tap on the screen to select various clip-art images to spice it up. There are hundreds of items to add to the picture, and although they are not organized and can take a while to scroll through, the process of taking, editing, and saving personal pictures is all done in an easy and intuitive way.

Violence & scariness

Some of the props that can be used have a violent tinge to them, like a hockey mask, sword, and a bloody nose.

One of the props looks like a "beer helmet," with straws connected to two cans that are attached to a hat. The cans are designed to look like cans of Budweiser beer; however, it does not actually say the words "beer" or "Budweiser."

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Faces ~ photo fun! is an app that allows users to take pictures with the device's built-in camera and then add all sorts of embellishments ("props") to the photo. These props include everything from bugged-out eyes and a Frankenstein head to Band-Aids and afros. A few of them may be of concern to some parents, like the mucous-spewing nose, or the object that looks like a beer hat, or the bloody nose. All of the content in this game is in the hundreds of props that are available, and the vast majority of them are simple, unobjectionable things like sunglasses, wacky-colored wigs, etc.

QUALITY

There's no denying that FACES ~ PHOTO FUN! is a fun, simple, easily accessible app that can add a humorous flare to even the most mundane of photos. It is largely limited in its features; other similar apps let users distort pictures with more advanced editing tools, add text to the photo, mesh multiple pictures together, etc. The advantage this app has over those more sophisticated ones is that virtually anyone can learn how to use it with no trouble. However, anyone looking for something more fulfilling from a photo editing app will have to look elsewhere.
