Exciting news: Facetopo v. 2.0 is live in the iTunes appstore. We're super excited about this new version. It's a major update!
We've upgraded the placement of facial landmarks and it's 100% automated now, and much more accurate, in addition to being more user-friendly.
We ask that all Users do 4 captures with this new version 2.0 of the app to be included in our first global 'face tree' to be created when we have enough data (10K Users). While the Facetopo app is able to capture children, our focus now for the study is the adult face, age 14+.
Once we have our first 'face tree' the fun begins. Our first Users will be able to see where their face fits in the branches of the world 'face tree'. Users will be able to access custom analytics for facial similarity, facial features, and facial symmetry. Eventually, Users will be able to create family 'face trees' and compare the faces in their family.
New in v. 2.0 is a new 'fun selfie' feature with science-themed filters. When you make your fourth capture, you unlock a sharing feature as well as 2 'fun selfie' filters. These 'fun selfies' are just a start, we're already working on more.
Try out the new app (it's still free!) and tell your friends!
