App of the week: iMadeFace

21:33, Feb 20 2013

iMadeFace chosen by Paul Spain of Gorilla Technology and NZ Tech Podcast.

Do you wish you looked a little better in photos? Well iMadeFace doesn't make you look better in photos, instead it helps you make an avatar for yourself or friends.

After installing the app on an iPhone you can shake your phone - this provides you with a different random avatar you can use as the basis for making your own avatar or cartoon-styled version of you.

First you can select a head shape, following that you go on to select eye type and colour, along with the same for mouth, ears, hair, and so on. Next you can save the image in your gallery or upload it via social media.

iMadeFace is a thoroughly addictive and free iOS app.
