[prMac.com] Pembroke Dock, United Kingdom - Purple Wax Games announces its newly updated app, Evil Twin Photo Booth. In 1980, Peter Thompson discovered the Thatcher effect, a visual illusion that makes it hard to notice changes in an upside down face. Now Evil Twin lets anybody create this illusion with their own photos, whether their iOS device has a camera or not.
"Creating this illusion isn't that hard to do for a graphic artist armed with Photoshop," said Evil Twin's inventor, Kevin Ayre. "But the average iPhone owner doesn't have the necessary software or skills to do this. So I created an app to make it quick and easy for anyone to make this incredible effect with their own photos. We've found that both kids and adults can get good results in seconds and have lots of fun doing so."
* Easy to use (even for adults!) with step by step instructions
* Supports front and rear cameras as well as Photo Album
* Smart zoom window for easy fine tuning
* Save to Camera Roll/Photo Album
* Share by email, Facebook and Twitter
But what about the monkeys? A study in the journal Current Biology has shown that the illusion also works on monkeys. But before you rush to your local Zoo and risk losing your iPhone to a curious primate, it's probably better to stick to using it on humans, even if some of your family and friends might look or act like monkeys.
* Compatible with iPad, iPhone & iPod touch
* Requires iOS 5.0 or later
