In social networks, in recent days, generalized portraits of elderly people have been circulating with wrinkles and gray hair where the characteristics of your friends are recognized. It is your application FaceApp, which is definitely not new: the developers introduced it two years ago, and since then tens of millions of people have downloaded it.

In a credible way, change hairstyle, eye color, makeup as a Hollywood star or show what your twin sister might look like. But the most popular effect is now called "travel in time," which adds wrinkles, lower circles, and will stop you for decades.
Sample application for iOS

There is a suspicion that the application does not collect the faces of people around the world, it does not assign names to them and does not create such a large database. Otherwise, it's fun with it.
