Tiny Face

tiny face screengrabs

Go small.

A handful of local companies have created mobile apps. But this one might be the craziest -- and most fun.

Tiny Face is an app that tests your ability to make your face small. Yep, you read that correctly.

As its website proclaims: "The definitive mobile application for quantitative face-reduction analysis is now available to the general public." Tiny Face uses the camera on the iPhone and iPad to take before and after photos, then it measures the difference. (Just be careful your face doesn't freeze that way.) It's 99 cents in the iTunes apps store.

It's the creation of jackadam, a Troy firm that specializes in building all sorts of creative digital whatnot.

So- someone has decided that enough people want to do this that an app is required?

Those people have entirely too much free time and disposable cash. Send them to me and I'll tell them they look stupid at no charge.

Hmmmm... You may want to see if you can get your 99 cents back.

Yeah, definitely more "fun" than what we make. Who doesn't like a free kiwi though?

I don't even understand.

I think I'd rather have Schweddy Balls than a Tiny Face.

This is perfect for those annoying people that you see out and about who can't be entertained by interacting with the live human beings that they are with. They are always like, "Look what I can with my phone!" No one cares about your stupid phone. I wish they'd make an app that blows up annoying people...

Say Something!

This is potentially good news for St. Josephs. I walk around it 2 or 3 times a week and the last few years the deterioration has seemed to accelerate. She will be looking right at it everyday from her front windows.
