Facetune App for iPhone/iPad
What It Is:
Facetune is an app that help make face shots or selfies look more desirable, from taking out “blemishes” to touching up the color.
What It Does:
A lot of teens use this app to retouch photos they take, but it’s not a social app, so people don’t communicate over this app. Facetune is simply a photo editor.
Would My Child Want It?:
If they’re active on social media and want ways to enhance the quality of the images they post—especially images of themselves—then they likely have a high interest in Facetune.
Where Can It Be Used?:
It’s currently only available for iOS devices, though an Android version is in the works.
What Should I Watch Out For?:
Nothing really. Since this is only a user-specific app, no one can communicate with your child using this app and no one else is posting photos to it.
What Are The Positives?:
Your kids will love it if they enjoy making their photos better and clear after they’ve been taken.
What Are The Negatives?:
Editing photos can become addictive, especially if your children are trying to edit out any perceived imperfections (thereby leading to body image issues).
What We Think:
Facetune is actually a pretty fun, harmless, and creative app. You might even enjoy messing with it yourself.
