Ellen DeGeneres inspires delightfully disgusting Ugly Selfie Booth app
Knoxville, Tennessee – Thousands of photo booth variations have cropped up in the App Store over the past couple of years, so why would another snap-beautify-share app warrant anyone’s attention? Because Ugly Selfie Booth doesn’t make pictures pretty. It makes people ugly. Complete with some nifty features and tons of gnarly “uglies,” Ugly Selfie is a sore sight for sore eyes.
Fancy your girlfriend with nose hair and a Mike Tyson tattoo? Done. Want to give your mother a monstrous makeover? Mix and match the piercings, warts, acne, femme ‘stache, and eighties makeup options. She may not think it’s funny, but you’ll be crying.
“We wondered if the term ‘selfie’ had gone mainstream yet, but after Ellen DeGeneres started talking about selfies on her show, we chose to stick with the name,” said Austin Church of Bright Newt. “She’s a talented comedian and does a lot of good for people, so an homage to Ellen seemed fitting.”
Uglify your face (or your arch nemesis) with this repulsive little app. Results may vary. Proceed with caution.
Take a new picture (or grab someone’s profile pic off Facebook), then turn yourself or your friend into an eye-melting troll. Once you’re finished, you can save your ugly selfies to your camera roll, email them, or share them with your friends on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram. The app looks and works great on iPhone, iPod, and iPad, thanks to an intuitive user interface, easy resizing & rotating for a realistic (or unrealistic) look, and, of course, a grotesque gallery of Frankenstein-worthy uglies. You can even have uglie selfies printed as postcards and mailed anywhere in the world.
