Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - FIRST TAKE -

Self­ies have taken over so­cial net­work­ing sites, but you can be­come an ex­pert us­ing the MSQRD app. De­signed only for iOS users, it works well on iPhone as well as iPad. Us­ing this app, you can add an­i­ma­tions or record short videos with an­i­ma­tion. Un­like most apps that merely add an­i­ma­tion, this one goes the ex­tra mile. It is re­ally good with track­ing fa­cial recog­ni­tion, in­clud­ing eyes, nose, lips and hair for adding fil­ters. By adding fil­ters, it com­pletely trans­forms the face into a new char­ac­ter. You can add big glasses, scary faces or even a cry­ing an­i­ma­tion when you open your mouth. You can add cat ears, mous­tache and have a lot of fun with this app. While the com­pany is push­ing it as a selfie app, it works with the front as well as the rear cam­era. Try it by cap­tur­ing images of your friends and adding fil­ters. The images and videos get stored in the phone’s gallery and can be later shared on In­sta­gram, Face­book or sent over a mes­sage, email or through other apps. The added spe­cial ef­fects to the images look per­­most like the job has been done by a pro­fes­sional. / IOS, FREE
