Incredible Cam is a silly app for the iPad and the iPhone that allows you to morph videos of ordinary people into furry, fuzzy animals like bears, cats, and dogs.
It’s the perfect app for entertaining children and adults alike. Kids will love taking short videos of friends and family, tapping a button, and watching them transform into a hilarious animal right before their eyes.
When you open the app, you’ll be prompted to record a short video. The app suggests making a silly face into the camera, which is then recorded and saved. From there, you can choose a video frame to start on (if you didn’t like a part of your video, this is the spot where you can eliminate it) and then you’re prompted to tap where the eyes and mouth of your subject are located, so that the app can line up properly.
After you’ve designated a video and set it up, you go to the lab, where you can pick an animal. There are several to choose from: lion, monkey, tiger, dog, cat, rabbit, panda, kangaroo, grizzly bear, pig, elephant, and hippo.
With your animal selected and your video complete, the app combines them together to make a silly video that is sure to delight kids.
Each one looks different, and the app is designed to take advantage of the silly face that you made. For example, some of them wink, while other stick a tongue out.
Your finished videos can be shared with friends and family via email, Twitter, or Facebook, and you can even choose to share videos on YouTube. Check out my finished video here: Panda Morph
What I liked: This is a fun app because the morphing works well. I made a range of silly faces and almost all of them were incorporated into the animal face with no problems. It was fun to play with, and I can imagine young kids having a blast transforming everyone into animals.
What I didn’t like: The graphics in this app really aren’t great. These are not high quality animal renderings, which is noticeable with the new iPad’s Retina display. It’s also a bit simplistic, and the novelty is sure to wear off quickly. Sharing with Twitter did not work.
To buy or not to buy: If you need to entertain your children for an afternoon, or want to make silly videos of your friends or relatives at a party, this is a good app to download.
