Funny Mask 1.0
Add clipart-type masks to any on-screen faces

Funny Mask is a fun application which tries to detect faces on the screen, then customises them with clipart-type masks (hats, glasses, wigs, more).

To use the program, launch it and click "Draw On Screen". Funny Mask uses OpenCV (the Open Source Computer Vision Library) to look for faces, and adds one of twelve silly customisations to anything it finds.

By default the program chooses a mask at random. If you have a preference, click the arrow to the right of "Draw On Screen" and select that option from the list.

If you want to save the results then of course you could press PrtSc, and paste the image into a graphics program. But it might be easier to just press Capture, which grabs the full screen and saves it as FunnyMask.png in the Funny Mask folder. (Unfortunately it always uses this file name, so clicking Capture again will overwrite the previous image.)

Funny Mask didn't always work for us. It had problems recognising faces which were cropped too tightly, for instance. And if a face is tilted then the mask won't always be in the right place.

The program got it right enough times to be worth trying, though. It's fun and easy to use, great as a way for kids to mess around on the PC. And there's a bonus extra for the more experienced: the bundled 12 masks are just PNGs with a transparent background, so it's easy to customise them or create more.

Verdict:

Kids should have fun with this, for a minute or two anyway (you might need to create extra masks to hold their attention for any longer).

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.5

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

Version 2.12.5 brings:

• Per chat custom notification settings and mute
• You can now include videos in your chat backups in Settings > Chats and Calls > Chat Backup
• Mark chats as unread or read with a swipe to the right
• Better support for VoiceOver
• Directly share contacts from the Contacts app and locations from Apple Maps to WhatsApp
• Lower the data usage used during WhatsApp calls in Settings > Chats and Calls 
• Earlier messages now load automatically as you scroll chats
• Improved design for cropping photos and videos
• Location messages now use a large map thumbnail
