The word of the year for 2013 was ‘selfie.’ If you want to have some fun with selfies, then definitely check out Warp Photo Booth for Windows Phone 8. Just launch the application, and take a picture with a very funny distortion effect. It’s a really simple photo app and we’re having a lot of fun with it.
Head past the break to watch our hands on video and walkthrough.
- Switch between the two cameras.
- Live preview of the effect.
- "My warpies": your personal gallery.
- See each warpy one by one in full size.
- Easily share a warpy with any sharing application installed on your device
When you open Warp Photo Booth, it activates the front facing camera. The distortion effect makes you look incredibly funny. Move and tilt the phone for different looks. If you’re happy with what you see, click the capture button at the bottom.
Want to use Warp Photo Booth on a friend? You can switch to the rear-facing camera.
All your photos are stored in the warpies gallery, ready for sharing. Warp Photo Booth uses the built in Windows Phone sharing option, so you can send these photos to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Email, MMS, etc. We prefer sending the photos to 6tag.
There’s currently only one warping effect, but an update is expected to bring more. The developer, Théo Rémy, also shares on Twitter that he is bringing in-app purchases to Warp Photo Booth soon.
If you are a Mac user, then this app will probably remind you of Apple’s Photo Booth application. We’re liking Warp Photo Booth so far and we’re looking forward to the update with more warping effects.
Warp Photo Booth is a free download at the Windows Phone Store. Check it out and let us know what you think of it in the comments!
