What's it about?
MSQRD - LIVE FILTERS & FACE SWAP FOR VIDEO SELFIES (MSQRD = "masquerade" with no vowels) that lets users play with a series of digital masks on their devices. Scroll across the bottom of the screen to pick one of the mask options, and then move your face (or two faces) into the frame and see what appears. Some masks come with instructions -- tilt your head down to flip on Iron Man's mask -- and others simply layer hair, facial features, and animal heads onto your face. If you enable the app to access your photos, you can record yourself wearing a mask or snap a photo. Then it's up to you to share those images via social media, if you like.
