App Review: Facehack for iPhone
Have you ever wanted to easily turn a photo into a unique profile picture for your Facebook profile? If so, Facehack is your app!
Facehack is a picture editor for Facebook profile pages. The app gives you the tools to take a photo and turn it into a unique profile picture right from your iPhone.
There are three steps to designing your picture:
1.) Pick a Photo
2.) Clear photo background with finger gestures
3.) One-touch upload to Facebook
When picking a photo, you can choose either an existing photo or take a photo using the iPhone camera from within the app. From here, you can rotate your photo 360Â° and/or zoom in and zoom out. Which ever orientation you place your photo, it must be within the gray dotted line (see images below).
Next you have three options; Erase, Unerase, Pan & Zoom. Choosing the “Erase” option allows you to use your finger to erase any part of the photo. By simply swiping your finger on the photo, you will begin to erase it. Choosing the “Unerase” option will have the opposite effect. The “Pan & Zoom” option allows you to move around or zoom into the image so to get in closer to erase more difficult areas of the photo. You can watch a video demonstration here.
Lastly, you can turn on or off a drop-shadow effect to your image, input your Facebook profile credentials and tap connect. Any photos that you have edited will be saved in a “My Facehack” photo album within the app, so you can swap your Facebook profile picture on the fly.
Facehack provides a clean interface and basic photo editing options for modifying your saved or newly taken pictures. The app makes the entire editing process very quick and easy and I really like how Facehack uploads the photo for you. Since the app provides built-in camera functionality, you need not exit the app to take a photo and all of your photos are saved, ready for use, within the app.
Facehack is scored a 4.5 out of 5.
