AppAdvice has teamed up with DryGin Studios, our latest AppAdvice Daily podcast sponsor, in order to offer you a chance to win iFunFace ($0.99) for iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Bring your favorite photos to life with iFunFace. It allows you to take everyday static photos and animate the subjects' heads in mere moments. When you first launch the app you'll be asked to take a new photo, import one from your library, or download one from Facebook. Try to make sure the photo you choose has subjects with heads that are facing forward and not too close to the edges, otherwise your results will be less than desirable. The next step is to identify the first head in your photo. To do so, just paint in the area you want to animate with your finger. You can utilize four different brush sizes to ensure you capture every detail. Then position the mouth by dragging four separate points. If there is more than one subject in your photo, you'll have the opportunity to identify the head and position the mouth for each one as well. You can also add accessories like sunglasses, hats, and mustaches to your subjects at this point. The last step in the animation process is to record messages for your subjects. Choose from one of the six voice effects, pick a subject, and then just start talking into your microphone. You're able to preview your bouncing, talking heads before sharing them via Facebook, YouTube, or email. To have a chance at winning one of two Twitter designated iFunFace promo codes, simply retweet this article before 11:59 p.m. PST tonight (November 26). We will then search the Twitterverse for all of the retweets and randomly choose our lucky winners. The winners will be notified via Twitter, so please be sure to follow us so we can send you your promo code via a direct message. Non-Twitter users and those of you who want to increase your odds of winning can leave a relevant comment below before 11:59 p.m. PST tonight to have a chance at winning one of the other three promo codes. Feel free to participate in the giveaway via either or both methods. Only one entry per person per method is allowed, totaling up to two entries per person if using both. Good luck!
