Blog . Photospeak, the True Talking Pictures
Photospeak is a creepy and cool way to send messages to your friends. It works much like the portraits of Harry Potter. They have subtle movements, like blinking eyes and slight facial movement left to right. But the true wonder of this app is in the ability to record your voice and watch the avatar speak it back to you. Video taken from iPad Creative However, upon coming upon this app at first, it's very misleading. The description that you are presented with is to just talk to her, the avatar. I looked like an idiot for a good 5 minutes, shouting at my iPad with my headphones on before I realized that there was no voice-recognition with response. You can only record your own voice and have it play the recording back to you in someone else's face. I ended up using a photograph of a cat that I found online for my tests. The lineup for the mouth is always a challenge, and the eyes don't always blink like they should. One more good point to note is that photospeak gives you a lot of options to export, including direct upload to YouTube and the ability to send your photospeak 'package' to other photospeak users. How do you rate something that is pioneering itself into new frontiers? Well, photospeak could certainly use some improvement. Perhaps a curved line to define the lips instead of a straight line would clarify the fickle mouth placement. Also, do not include misleading directions. For creativity, a 3 of 5. For a cohesive application that works easily, also a 3 out of 5. But for moving into a new frontier and exploring things that were once left only to fantasy, a 5 of 5 for sure. Photospeak in iTunes - $2.99
