It’s that time of year again! Halloween is nearly among us so of course it’s time to start making ghoulish photos and posting them to Facebook, assigning them to contacts, and emailing them to friends and family. Monstermakr created by Dadako Studios is the newest edition to the face altering genre and does a good job of making the process easy, spirited, and kid friendly.
The kid friendly aspect of this app is what stands out the most to me. It’s really easy to customize your face and email, share, and post to Facebook and Twitter. I can see middle school aged kids having a field day making funny pics of their friends, teachers, bus drivers, and parents. Adults can get a kick out of this app too, especially in a workplace setting, but for me it loses it’s luster pretty quickly. Maybe that’s just because I’ve messed around with so many different face apps at this point
So there’s really not much to explain about Monstermakr. If you’ve tried one face altering app you have the general gist of what’s involved. The most important things to know is does it do a good job and is it easy to use, and for this app that’s definitely the case. It takes literally one minute to snap a pic, drag and drop in some funny fake eyes, lips, mustaches, wounds, etc. It takes just a touch or two to add sounds, share with friends, post to Facebook. I think anyone fairly acquainted with an iPhone or iPod touch will create masterpieces with little to know direction. Even 3-5 year olds could whip up a little somethin somethin with this app.
I think we can all agree that apps like this are seasonal and pretty cheesy, which is exactly why many of us like them. Kids love getting into the spirit of Halloween and having a funny face maker is definitely something they’ll enjoy. If you’re looking for one that both you and your kids can have fun with then Monstermakr certainly fits the bill. It’s only $0.99 and probably good for a couple of laughs.
