    TwoPixels.pl has released a fun new app called OldBooth [App Store] that takes photos from your iPhone's camera roll and places them through various masks that can give you an old timey makeover.
    The $2.99 app is one of those "just for fun" apps and appears to come with 8 different masks for either men or women.

    While the developers provide a demo video, we asked them to give us an example with a recognizable person, so here's a sample of what you can do:

    I'm very impressed with how well this application does what it does. Simple yet sophisticated. Future updates should add more templates, though the ones provided are spectacular!

    Because you're cheap and think all apps should be priced at a ridiculously low $1 or because you are really not interested at all in this app?

    Are there any apps like this for the Mac, where it's focused on just doing face replacement? Not looking for general purpose apps like Ps, Elements, etc.

    I'm thinking of putting together a Christmas gag calendar for family members and it would be funny to put their faces on famous people (Baywatch, Dancing with the Stars, etc.) I'd want something streamlined so I don't have to spend much time working on it but still get good results.

    I remember a website that did the same thing only you could choose by decade. It was flipping hilarious.

    Direct rip-off. I hope it's by the same people, otherwise the dev should at least give credit to them.

    Because of the concept? Or because of duplicate photos?

    Duplicate photos is one thing. This sort of idea is nothing new and has been around in a number of gimmick applications and ideas.

    It's a direct copy of a web-app that went viral.

    No it's not. The web-app is a yearbook. The iPhone app is a wooden surface with photos sitting on it.

    That's not a direct copy.

    They accomplish the same task, yes. But do you think Pixelmator should "give credit" to Adobe since it does the same tasks as Photoshop?

    Of course not. Different people are allowed to make programs that do similar tasks. They're not allowed to rip-off the WAY it does the task, but that's not the case here at all.

    Looks pretty cool. I will be sure to purchase it when the price drops to $0.99 in about 2 or 3 weeks.

    Cheers.

    Rip off or not, this is the best £1.79 I've spent in a while. Should get a few laughs at work tomorrow!

    and your psychotherapy license to analyze me is where . . . ?

    i just don't put any "value" in the app. it's a parlor trick at best. well done, but nothing i'm interested in. sorry if that doesn't fit your narrow view of the world.
