Do you look more like Mum or Dad? There's an app for that
December 28, 2012 in Entertainment
[prMac.com] London, United Kingdom - Ted Nash, one of the UK's youngest entrepreneurs, has released Mum or Dad under the Liquid5 umbrella, a business venture which he has co-founded with Nick Reffit.
"We are delighted to announce the launch of our latest application, Mum or Dad." said Nash, CEO of Liquid5. "We are committed on delivering entertainment and a moment of laughter to people from all walks of life. I realize that an application like Mum or Dad might not be a legitimate business in its own right but the network effect of multiple applications can become hugely valuable when we come to launch a more sustainable product and cross promote our user base."
Mum or Dad aims to settle the age old dispute of whether a person looks more like their mother or their father in a quick and entertaining way. The app scans a photograph and then compares it to the two selected photos of the parents. The result is then delivered by using the same algorithm that powered Nash's previous App Store hit, Fit or Fugly. Mum or Dad uses the Fibonacci Ratio to scan the parents' faces and map their features, which are then compared with the user's photo.
This is a quick and reliable method of finding similarities between features and determining which two faces have most in common with 100% accuracy. Users can upload photos from the image gallery on their mobile phone, from Facebook albums, or even snap a picture straight for the app. Any ongoing debate between friends or family can now be settled within seconds.
Nash became an online personality in 2010 after he launched Little Gossip, a website where users could post gossip about their classmates anonymously. The venture attracted a lot of attention from the press, as it received over 33,000 page views in the first hour. Little Gossip paved the way for two more hugely successful apps, Fit or Fugly and Rack Stare. The two brought in around 1 million in revenue with over two and a half million downloads, and Nash was dubbed a "viral hitmaker" by Wired.
Nash started his first online business when he was only 12 years old, and since then he has been tirelessly working to develop new and exciting ventures. Liquid5, the new face of Venevi Enterprises, is planning the release of two more apps, FaceFriends and GF vs BF.
