Great but.....


Personally, I think this game is really fun and great to play with your friends so you can see how long they can go. But here are some suggestions and problems to make this game better. First problem is that sometimes when I’m not even smiling, it will say I smiled but I didn’t and I even replayed the backup video at the the end and I never smiled! Another problem is that when my face is right in front of the camera the game says it’s still trying to find my face. This problem is super annoying and I hope you can fix it. Now for some suggestions there should a kids theme that has vines that don’t have bad words in them so that way it’s easier for kids to play and listen to the vines and play the game in the first place. Second, there should be a kinda like multiplayer theme where you could click on a playing theme and it would spilt the screen in half and it would connect to another persons phone and the vine would be in the middle and you and the other person could watch the same vines and whoever laughed first would lose. Other than that I think that this game is really fun and awesome to play and I definitely would suggest this game to anyone reading this and my friends!😋😋

Great idea. Released too early.


Although the app is very interesting, I have to admit that I did have a bit of fun using this app, it was a pain to use. First you have to aim the camera at your face (this can be annoying holding up your phone to your face for a long period of time) and then it takes 10-15 minutes for it to finally work. You have to make sure that you’re in a well lit room (believe me I was in a bright room) and then you have to make sure that you weren’t smiling (pretty easy). However it takes quite a while to detect your mouth to see whether you are smiling or not which really pisses me off. Also even when the app works as intended as soon as the first video appears it automatically ends since I was smiling when I clearly wasn’t (so this needs to be worked on). For this reason I’m giving this app a three star rating (good idea, but released way too early in my opinion). Hopefully this is updated to make the overall experience better! 🙂👍🏿

Have you seen this???


First of all, hands down round of applause to the 16 year old high school student who made this app.

To the developer: I too have noticed some things as well. Such as trolls appearing amongst us, offering no value to anything.

I also discovered just how cool this app idea is, and am astonished that again, a 16 year-old made time to put together something 99% of people can’t do.

Don’t worry though Mr. Developer, you’ll find those people below and most likely above my review, explaining how it’s all been done wrong.

The app definitely, is a one of a kind innovation that I think we’ll see more of in the future.

The functionality of the app in respect to what it advertised, worked perfectly. I was worried at first lol, but it finally got me, and the app responded instantly when I smiled. Simple as that. Amazing stuff you got going here!

Good luck to you my friend. The potential lives in you so much, that I took the time to write this unnecessarily long review.

I may have been motivated by 1 or 2 other factors as well - lol. Seriously. Ugh.
