This is the last day of April. Here comes a new month, also a long weekend (3 days because of the labour day public holiday). Let’s have fun with our phones. Sometimes it feels like every mobile user in the entire world is obsessed with taking selfies. So, we’ll introduce you 3 cool camera apps for video selfie that can make you stand out of the selfie pack! They have numbers of cool live filters and motion stickers, even they could let you swap face with your friends.
Recently there is news saying Facebook has purchased a face-swapping and live filter app MSQRD. This news shows how popular this app is. If you haven’t try MSQRD, download it from play store and having fun with it.
MSQRD is a clever little app that lets you take photos and videos of yourself, and add effects to them. Simply saying you could add a crying animation to your eyes, or morph your face into that of a dog or a gorilla, or turn your face into somebody else.
The cool thing is you could record a video selfie where you’ve physically become an animal instead of just sending someone a photo where you’ve painted yourself as an animal. They are using 3D face tracking technology to follow your face movement so that the live filter/masque is so vivid in camera.
Further more, you could have fun playing this app with your partner together. That filter is what I like the most, which you could swap your face with your partner when both of you are taking selfie together. Trust me, you two will just can’t help laughing out loudly.
All the filters are applied in real-time, so you can see yourself instantly and have lots of fun before snapping a shot or recording a video.
Snow is an cute video selfie app with a great many of live filters and motion stickers. It is more cartoonish in someway. I can imagine that it attracts girls more than guys.
The using is simple, as MSQRD, just put your face at the front camera of your phone and try different effects you like. Take note that it is better to put your face at the center position of the screen so that the phone camera could recognize your face correctly.
The best of Snow is that it has so many various live filters and motion stickers that you can have your video selfies in all kinds of styles. It would take you at least half an hour every time playing with it. Not some effects of MSQRD, nearly all the effects will not cover your face, but only add special filters or cartoon effects on your face.
Similar with Snapchat, Snow is also a social app that you could send your selfie clip to your friend via Snow. Share your cute moment with your friends at any time!
Since Snapchat is so popular among the social apps, you may already know how to use this app.
However, I find that it is not so straightforward of how to use the special effect to take selfie if you are first time using Snapchat. Simply long press the screen and you will see it is recognizing your face and all the live filters and effects show up. Be aware that the filters are not staying in the app forever, the choices varies in different periods. So play the filters when they are still in Snapchat.
There is “face swapping” filter in Snapchat also, but it is a bit different with in MSQRD. In MSQRD, you two swap the whole faces with each other, all your facial expression will be showing on your partners face. But in Snapchat, after swapping each other’s face, you’ll experience controlling the other one’s facial expression on your face. The feeling is amazing that you are not controlling your face.
For using of send photos and video chat, Snapchat is a quick way. The self-destruct feature means that your friends can’t reshare that embarrassing photo you sent. It’s a kind of cool chatting way, especially the fantastic video effects.
