Fun Booth: Smart App To Add Creative Touch To Your Photos

Fun Booth Rating: ★★★½☆

FunBooth is a smart little app that allows you add creative touch to photo’s of your family and friends. There are already a few apps that do the similar tasks but what makes FunBooth stand out is it’s ability to auto-detect the face within the photo and add a variety of props to the face.

While FunBooth will work with small pictures, the face recognition works much better with a single forward facing head shot filling the screen as much as possible. Of course for iPhone users it’s quite simple to get a portrait shot of someone using the inbuilt camera and this is all very easy as you can simply select the picture you want to use from your photo albums and camera roll.

With the picture selected the first of a plethora of accessories is placed onto the person face and if the photo your using is clear & large the the automatic placement of these items is frequently spot on. The accessories include masks, glasses, mustaches, beards, horns, hats, axes, knifes and many more.

If on the rare occasion the item is not placed perfectly you can move and resize it using the touch screen until you have a perfect fit. Once you are happy with your work you can share your picture via Twitter, Flickr, Email or save it to one of your phone contacts. You can only have one item on the face at a time and the choice of item is purely random either by shaking your iPhone/iPod touch or tapping the rotate button.

FunBooth doesn’t do much but what it does works well, so for 99c this is a fun app especially for iPhone users where getting an appropriate picture is just a tap away.

    ChapBros Media is please to announce, SHOW OFF, the World-Wide talent competition EXCLUSIVELY on the Apple iPhone and iPod Touch.

    ChapBros Media is the brain child of Duane Lee Chapman, Wesley D. Chapman and Leland B. Chapman, the sons of the world famous “DOG The Bounty Hunter”. ChapBros Media has just received the thumbs up from Apple Inc. and is now available in the APPLE iTunes Store: http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=330046909&mt=8

    SHOW OFF gives users the ability to not only submit videos of their talents, but also to vote via the iPhone or iPod Touch for their favorite video submission. Weekly prizes will be given for the overall winner and every 14 weeks one Ultimate SHOW OFF will be crowned!

    As SHOW OFF develops so will the prizes! Due to Apple restrictions ChapBros Media is unable to give away cash prizes, but the Chapman brothers have a few ideas up their sleeves! Prizes now will consist of t-shirts, bags, hats, guitar straps, drum sticks, flip video cameras, mugs and so on.

    ChapBros Media has taken their business plan to the social community in a very effective and aggressive way. By utilizing MySpace, FaceBook and Twitter the Chapman brothers have not only created the social fan buzz, but have turned their company fans into active marketing agents. The Chapmans’ have assigned team leaders to lead teams. These teams have been given critical duties to help grow the SHOW OFF project and the ChapBros Media brand. Teams are assigned ‘missions’ and each team is rewarded for the completion of these ‘missions’. For an example, this week teams were given the mission of sending out press releases to local media outlets.

    Not only does this bring the fans closer to the project and the Chapman brothers, it also fuels viral and social marketing. In just days the Chapman’s Twitters, MySpace and FaceBook have gathered thousands of fans and is growing every day.

    ChapBros Media will be releasing other iPhone apps in the coming weeks and will continue to release apps through out 2009 and 2010.
