faceswap

Hello there fellow Android Mobilers, hope you guys and gals are all well and appy! This week I have a good old plain and simple loads of fun app for you all to try out.

Face Swap is exactly what it says on the tin…. it lets you change two faces on a picture instantly. The faceswapper tool uses automatic face recognition to select the faces to be swapped and at a touch of a button you can switch the faces of people on to different bodies.

In reality, although the app is pretty well built, it feels solid with good graphics, I found the face recognition to be a bit dodge, it didnt just get the faces exact. That said you do have the option to move the selection to the desired location and if the faces are straight you can get very good results. Face Swap also gives you the option to flip and rotate the faces, giving you even better results.

Overall the results do depend on the picture you are use, I’d like to see an option to zoom into an image to allow you to select faces more accurately. It’s good fun swapping faces of friends or parents with their kids you get some very funny results. A cool app to have a laugh with! Download it on Google Play and have an Appy Monday!

First off, this is not free! But that in itself is a statement as to how good this game is, it’s the first app I’ve included in the Appy Mondays series that you have to pay for, One Euro and five cent will get you Granny Smith one of the most enjoyable games on the Android market today

There are 36 levels tot his superb game, where you, as Granny Smith don a pair of roller skates to chase after a young thief who tries to steal you apples. The object of the game is to collect all three apples on each level before the thief does. For the most part Granny Smith will self propel herself, you can use the jump button to make her not only jump but somersault into the air, being careful to land her on her feet!. You also have the option of using her cane not only as a speed boost but also the hook the thief and slow him down. As levels progress you use the cane to hang form ropes going between buildings and tress etc.

Gameplay is exceptional and I got the old school free of Sonic The Hedgehog, so if you are a fan of Sonic, this game is well worth checking out. There are powerups such as helmets and baseballs for throwing in the tool shed that can be swapped for points collected, character changes also int eh shape of a dog and an old man, each with canes!

Gameplay is second only to graphics, the whole game is given a vintage twist to keep up with the aging Granny, menu’s are within old TV surrounds and sepia coloring’s.  The graphically details on every level and how beautifully drawn the buildings and landscapes make the game a joy to play.

Download it, you’ll love it, You’ll have a very Appy Monday!
