    Hi,

    I've got a new app out called 'FaceFudge' that lets you see how you'd look as a criminal, a victorian or even as a 50's geek :)

    It's a free download for the iPhone/iPod touch and a mere 59p/99c if you want to buy extra face templates to use. You can also post your results to facebook or twitter.

    Here's a link to the itunes store:

    http://itunes.apple.com/gb/app/facefudge/id382427944?mt=8


    And a youtube video if you want to have a look before you download:

    Thanks!

    Take this as constructive critisism, because that is what it is;

    I wouldn't buy this app. The reasons are because there are other alternatives out there, that possibly are even free, and they also offer more options and templates. From the looks of the youtube video, there are 6 templates overall. Male and Female for the actual three templates.

    Is this really worth 99c? I dunno, but even though your app contains style, it lacks content.

    Anyway, don't let my opinion put anyone off, but I personally wouldn't be buying.

    Hi,

    Thanks for the feedback, the free version has 6 templates and the 99c upgrade has over 40 so I don't think its particularly bad value for money. I think it's nicer to have a 'try before you buy' and that's the reason its a free download.

    The software also does a lot of background work to reposition and match the face shades so you don't have to modify it yourself - a lot of other apps (such as oldbooth) require you to do a lot of that work yourself.

    Thanks,
    Tone

    Looks like it might be fun on the video, gonna get it now and try it out but this doesn't sound that good:

    Paid the 99 cents for extra templates. Never got them and male no longer works. Of course like most apple devs no response just take the money and run."

    Of course not all iTunes reviews are 100% serious and the base game is free so ill try that atleast :)

    Yeah, I think that guy just didn't realise he'd bought it - he left another review underneath that one (4 stars) that says he enjoyed it.

    Looks good but if you'd produced two versions, a Lite with the In App Purchase and a Full with everything included, then you'd make more sales.

    The reason is that anyone who has a Jailbroken device cannot make In App Purchases... so can't buy your product. This is why it's best to produce both a Lite and a Full rather than do it how you have...

    I would definitely buy the full version if you ever decide to do this!

    But also creating a "full app" opens the doors to the possibility of piracy. Is this a new problem with Jailbreaking to prevent users from making in-app purchases? I Jailbroke my iPhone ages ago and had no problems with the iTunes store.

    Thanks for the info Jamie, I didn't realise you couldn't use the in-app purchase system on jailbroken phones - I'll definitely look into doing a full version without that.

    Thanks,

    got a quick suggestion - it would be nice if you could maybe pick the face from a list instead of going through them all?

    We did think about that when we were making the app but thought it would be a bit simpler if it just chose them at random. We're going to be adding new face templates in the future so we'll definitely look into adding a list option too.

    Thanks,
