This iPhone app will either put a literal smile on your face, or completely terrify you

There's very little technology can't fix these days, so if you aren't born with the kind of Hollywood smile to temporarily blind all people and small animals in your vicinity, don't give up hope. FaceApp, a trendy new app, can put a glowing smile on the gloomiest of subjects. The intervention is accomplished with deep learning algorithms that come up with a smile which looks quite believably yours.

That's not nearly all the app does, though the rest of the functionality borders on the terrifying. For example, it's able to age you like even a rigorous daily regimen of nicotine and regret won't. Or change your gender to the point where you see the result and start asking yourself some very uncomfortable questions. So we suggest sticking to the smiles and exploring the rest of the app while feeling particularly confident, or more than a little tipsy. FaceApp is a free download.

Download FaceApp for Android or iOS

Windows Mobile is more or less dead, so they are now overlooking android. If you couldn't do a simple and brief search on the Play Store, what exactly could you do, apart from writing a half-baked article?

I could put myself in your place and think long and hard about how my laughable deduction skills and lack of basic politeness led me to spending my limited time on this planet accusing strangers on the Internet of being thoroughly incompetent, with an authority I falsely assumed I possess. But I'd rather leave that up to you.

Ignore those trolls. It was just an honest to god mistake and people don't know the pressure of having to write a few articles a day.

Okay, I accept that my comment was a tad too critical. I don't take note of the writers, but I've witnessed this kinda oversight here, many a time. Let's take a look: I am going to write an article about the awesome capabilities of this app. I found and downloaded it from the App Store. So I'll assume it's not available for other platforms. I'll tag it under iOS, and I'll include its App Store link. I will not bother to check if it's also available on the Play Store — people can find that out for themselves. I'll publish it, and when a reader criticizes me for not linking it to other Stores, which I really should have done, I'll play the victim and make the user look like the bad guy… a troll.
