Realistic face-swapping app

Headface is the new app that finally brings a realistic face swapping experience to the iPhone. Choose your mask, and then have fun

  • Pros: 

    Dynamic, flexible, realistic, and fun


    Not yet compatible on devices like the 6s

    Creatively designed application that utilizes the newly updated AR-Kit to combine facial recognition with humor. The app does a great job with the Augmented Reality additions and picking up on not only my facial features but adjusting to my coworkers’ as well.

    I’m anxious to see how the developers continue to release different masks and I’m curious to see additions with the new AR-Kit updates.

    Overall, great application that runs very smooth. Would definitely recommend to anybody interested and believe this is a great launch point for the brand. 5/5!

Nice job! Looking forward to seeing more masks than Obama and Trump. Only comment is that Trump's nose isn't that big and he's not orange enough!

@jbatutis Thanks Joe! You're a designer - how are your 3D modeling skills? Need all the help we can get 😜. We're thinking about letting the user dynamically texture the masks in-app to address preferences for the orange skin...

Loved the app. Incredibly smooth and realistic face swapping with the masks. I've been messing around with it all morning, and I'm impressed.

Saw & friends made a fun app that could be endlessly expanded upon. I could see something like videogame characters in this! Congratulations on shipping, guys.

@flarup Thanks so much for the hunt, Michael! Hey PH 👋, I’m Saw. We built Headface because we were having a lot of fun with Animoji and the like but thought it wasn’t quite realistic enough. Headface is an experiment to push the boundary on how lifelike of a “face swapping” experience we can really get on mobile and in AR. As a team of engineers and designers, we’d really love any and all feedback with regard to design, feature requests, bugs, you name it! We started with the POTUS heads because their likeness is fair use… let us know who we should Headface next!

Hey! How does this differ from snapchat lenses, panda etc? 🙌

@aaronoleary Hey Aaron! Good question. There are obviously quite a few apps for face filters and avatars. We really focused on getting animated 3D models as realistic as possible with modeling, texturing, and lighting because the apps we were using felt cartoonish.
