Face Melter is an image manipulation application. You take a picture either from your photo library or from the camera itself and manipulate it by moving your finger across the screen. It's a simple little app that's loads of fun!
The idea is pretty intuitive. You load or take a picture, then you push on it with your finger to move the pixels around -- it gives the image a stretched appearance. The resulting images can vary from slightly odd -- like increasing the size of an eye -- to surreal (see the sample images below).
If you go too far, and you will know when that happens, there's an undo feature. The undo button in the upper right can be toggled to reverse the changes. With this toggled when you drag your finger over the screen the pixels under your finger will move back to their original locations while maintaining a stretched appearance in the rest of the image.
Once you have your masterpiece you can save the image back to your image library for use as a contact image, background, or to email to someone.
Here's a movie that shows you Face Melter in action:
This is an application that does what it says it's going to do and does it well. Really enjoy this app. As you can see from the sample images below I had loads of fun with even the sample image. It's great at parties and also for little kids.
