Down the evolutionary ladder with WhatsApe - A new fun-photo app
June 26, 2012 in Photo and Video
[prMac.com] Bochum, Germany - Developer Moritz Meschonat from mflux is pleased to announce the release of his newest app "WhatsApe 1.0". Have some fun. Ape yourself and everybody that has a sense of humor. The iPhone app "WhatsApe" lets you and your friends slide down the evolutionary ladder - mission CodeMonkey is under way. The app displays a number of great ape photos that may be previewed in an overview. All photos feature a blank copy space into which a face may be inserted, if you want to ape yourself.
"WhatsApe" now engages the camera of the iPhone (or the iPod touch / iPad). The user may take a self-portrait with the front camera, or utilize the back camera to capture a picture of a friend. The app will insert the live picture of the camera into the copy space of the ape photo. The trick is to maintain the perfect distance to the "subject" in order to achieve the right size photo for the ape mask. After just a few seconds of practice the result will come out absolutely perfect. All that's left is to push the release button and the ape photo is done. You - or your friends - have aped yourself.
The app offers numerous effect filters, such as "CrackleWhiz" or "BluePush", that really put the finished photo through the wringer and jazz it up even more. To put the final touch on the project, a banner may be placed over the photo - "WhatsApe?", "Scratch Me!", "Alpha Male", or perhaps "CodeMonkey". The result may be saved in the photo gallery of the iPhone, or it can be posted right out of the app on Facebook . So don't wait to ape yourself, or some of your friends, and put a smile on everybody's face.
"Our app "WhatsApe" clearly belongs to the fun category of the App Store," said Developer Moritz Meschonat. "Anyone that doesn't have a problem with making himself look a little foolish will truly enjoy the app. Have a good laugh - ape yourself."
