A Basic Facial Expression Tutorial combined with a Facial Expression Challenge Game Simulation.

Learn the major facial expressions and test your skills in the Challenge Mode. The Challenge mode simulates micro expressions as popularized by Paul Ekman.

Great for learning what parts of the face move during certain emotions. Good as a drawing reference as well as for educational purposes.

User The Chirashi pointed out an error that I missed.
The main launch screen uses a component that has a bug in it only in Release mode. I pulled the new update to the component and retested in release mode.
Sorry for the inconvenience.

Not for micro-expressions

The app is a pretty good tool for helping people learn basic facial expressions (sadness, anger, fear etc) when these are fully present on a face. The app itself works fine. However, this app does not actually fulfill it's intended purpose. The app consists of one simulated face showing a set number of emotional expressions. In challenge mode, these same expressions flash quickly between two neutral expressions. Micro-expressions are usually very subtle, and their appearance varies from person to person... So having only one face (female, white, young) in the app, that simply flashes a set number of identical full emotional expressions doesn't teach people to recognize micro-expressions. If you are looking to get a basic understanding of facial expressions, the app is a good place to start. For those truly interested in micro-expressions, this will not be helpful.

Best micro expression app

This is the best micro expression app on the market. Kudos to the creator. It is challenging and fun on the most advanced level, but I would suggest adding more people and ages and another level.

I think it is very difficult to get real micro expressions from live people. There is another app that does this and if you look at the eyes most of their emotions/expressions are obviously fake which is not good training. I think this creator's use of cgi was a brilliant move.

Good app considering that it's free

Good for training and learn basics. I hope some real face will be added in future
