The Description of FaceApp: Face Editor

FaceApp is a face app developed by Russia's Wireless Lab, which quickly became a success after its launch in 2017. The software itself is very simple, and it is positioned as a tool app. Of course, there are paid and free versions, and there are no complicated communities. The functions include makeup, expression editing, hairstyle editing, age editing, etc. In addition, some filters are very superficial, after all, they are not the main functions.


App Store Performance

In fact, FaceApp was launched on the App Store as early as January 24, 2017. Since then, it has been loved by many Apple users because of its innovative products. The single-day download volume has reached 120,000, and it has also rushed to the photography and video list. The second position in the free list is also recommended by the Apple Store. However, the popularity of the product began to gradually decline, but it has become popular again in the past two years. As of now, it has a 4.6 rating on the Android app, and the number of reviews is ‎4,213,496.



FaceApp: Face Editor Pros and Cons


1. The functional interface of the App is very simple, and the core involved are face-related technologies and generative models

2. FaceApp's "aging filter" has been greatly improved in neural network analysis. Many "old version" photos do not have too much sense of violation, including personal characteristics that are well preserved. It's not just about adding wrinkles, the skin has also been slackened and aged, and even my own eyes have become smaller due to the aging of the eyelids.

3. FaceApp also integrates a star material search function. Clicking "Celebrities" below will enter the search page. There are rarely Chinese stars in a large number of keywords. I saw Dilireba, Yang Mi and Andy Lau. Waiting for a familiar name.



1. Not all recognized photos can use the face-changing effect. Some photos with side faces or small faces will display "No face detected in the photo"

2. If you do not pay to upgrade to the PRO version, there are not many face-changing filters that can be used. There are relatively basic "smile expressions" or "aging filters" that are popular all over the Internet. They will be classified into different categories in the software, such as getting old will be under the age category, and there are two younger version filters under the same category.

3. There are privacy concerns. In FaceApp's privacy policy, it is written that the app will obtain information such as your location information, IP address, and log files in order to target advertisements. Armed with this data, FaceApp's advertisers can target users in specific regions.


FaceApp: Face Editor Reviews

FaceApp uses AI technology to edit pictures. There are three functions that are particularly popular: making the face smile and gender swapping the faces in the photo, such as changing the face of a woman to the head of a man. The third function is to make the face appear to be aging, such as the face of a teenager, through AI editing, into the face of the elderly. I have to say that the effect of FaceApp is very realistic and delicate, and I think this is due to the deep generative convents technology they use. This technique can reconstruct a human face by mimicking the neural connection structures of the human brain. And this technique does a good job of preserving important features of the face and then making changes.


Faceapp's functionality is particularly accurate because it works differently from most image processors. Not only does FaceAPP change the graphics outside the user from the filter, but it also uses some new technology to capture the data in the image, and customers can choose the desired effect. Then AI will present different functions and make very realistic effects. So this APP has actually transitioned from traditional algorithms to deep learning algorithms.


Of course, this does not mean that it is perfect product. Much of Facebook's concerns come from privacy concerns, as cybersecurity and privacy violations can kidnap people's privacy and security through some interesting disguises. For platforms like Apple and Google, how to review whether a program is risky is also a big problem. Because we know that the privacy of many product users is being threatened by the Internet, users want to have more security and better control over the use of the program, and can better protect people's privacy, so we also hope that Faceapp can further pay more attention to the privacy of users in the program.

Yet, on the other hand, the app receives some negative comments in terms of its in-game purchases and available features. First of all, the paid packages of features offered by the app are way too high and make users feel that the price is unreasonable. Therefore, it might cost them a lot of money if they download and install this app for use. Secondly, there are in-app ads that affect the users’ experiences. Thirdly, the functions of the app are not perfect. There are still some bugs in terms of its photo editing features. For example, the rotation function doesn’t work normally.
