    Pros: 

    Even losing a round is fun

    Cons: 

    The comedic sources are repeatative

    I'd love to get more variety into the funny videos, especially I dislike it when a longer video from king bach for example just gets gut off … missing the punchline most of the time.

    Pros: 

    Great idea, and could be an awesome way of bringing exposure to up-and-coming Youtubers

    Cons: 

    It said I smiled every single time, even when I made sure I didnt move a muscle. Maybe I just have Resting-Smiling-Face (better than RBF!)

    Hopefully Im the only one having the "you smiled every time" issue. Overall great idea and design though!

👋 Hi Product Hunt, @dinbisevac, @fabianehlert and I are the makers of Cheese. After the iPhone X launched last year we were all fascinated by the powerful TrueDepth Sensors and immediately knew we wanted to use them in an app. Luckily, the talented @dinbisevac had the idea for Cheese and we started working on it right away. Cheese presents you the funniest videos the internet has to offer. You can play against others simultaneously or in turns. One game consits of 10 videos. While you watch them, we use your iPhone's camera and TrueDepth Sensor (latter only on the iPhone X) to check if you're laughing. Who laughs more often, loses. We soft-launched Cheese last month and took the time to add more features (like Jokers) and generally improve the app. While the original version was only compatible with the iPhone X, Cheese can now be used on any iPhone with iOS 11. We'd love to know what you think about it and are happy to answer all your questions!

@afanasiy Hey Afanasiy! We all really wanted to build an app that uses the iPhone X’s TrueDepth sensors and this idea seemed like a really fun way to do exactly that (we ended up also using some other new APIs in iOS 11 to make it compatible with older devices). As for the future of the app, we’d love to add more content to the app (right now we have about 8.5k Videos) and are looking for content providers. We also plan to add leaderboards and maybe temporary global challenges.
