Face Swap

Have you ever thought of swapping your face with someone else’s? Face Swap provides a simple and quick way to swap the faces of people using a photo taken with others.

All you need to do is to take a photo facing the camera or select one you already have, and then shake your phone. Then let Face Swap do its magic! You’ll see the faces are automatically swapped.

Photos can then be saved to your photo library or shared directly on Facebook, Twitter or Sina Weibo. Main Features: • Multiple face detection enabled • Shake to create a new photo with people’s faces swapped! • Share your photos on Facebook, Twitter or Sina Weibo

Face Mask

Want a fun way to play with photos? Or for reasons like privacy, would you like an easy way to hide a person’s face before sharing a photo? Then Face Mask is the right app for you.

It offers a wide selection of masks/stickers to apply to your favorite photos. Face Mask is a magic tool that enhances your pictures with cool effects. Just take a picture, and add a mask either by a tap or through a shaking gesture.
