Novelty apps really thrive at the App Store. And I’m not talking about the infamous fart sort – TMA aren’t that interested in gassing. Rather there are quite a number interesting and creative apps out there. I’ve recently reviewed such a one from MotionPortrait, Inc. – PhotoSpeak and was very impressed by what it can do. And now we have a new title from the same developer – HourFace.
In the late eighties, a TV show appeared that pioneered cyberpunk in the US. That show was Max Headroom. Though it was extremely short-lived due to heavy competition, it opened the audience’s eyes to the future, where an artificial intelligence could replace people as reporters, TV hosts and other media personas that we only see through the dreaded box with moving pictures. Well, thanks to MotionPortrait we’re now one step closer to this future and create a Max Headroom of our very own with PhotoSpeak and the tap of a finger.
