Apple iPhone introduces its latest apps The Ugly Meter

The new iPhone has brought out its latest apps called the “Ugly Meter”. It is just what the bullies would want to take advantage of innocent people. For the wicked mind their targets have been made easy now. Anyone, who are cyber or gizmo geeks have got a trump card in their hands this time.


Be it the junior school students or the cyber addict, all is in their hands. The apps are available in Apple’s iTunes store. It allows to take photos of faces and give facial structure analysis in real-time. After the apps has completed scanning then it gives result on a scale of 10.


The “Ugly Meter” can be downloaded more than 20,000 times. It is only designed for users ages 9 and above. The apps is thus set up in such a way that if a person gets 10 out of 10 in the Ugly Meter then he/ she is the most ugliest. Comments like "You're so ugly, when you walk by the bathroom, the toilet flushes." If a person gets a score around 1 or even around 2.6 then the apps can be less rude and generate "If beauty were time, you'd be an eternity." Eugene Overline, co-owner and lead programmer of Dapper Gentlemen of Gilbert, Arizona, the company which is behind the application said that, "We've done some serious games in the past and just wanted to do something funny, you take it out and you won't get your phone back for an hour."


The “Ugly Meter” application was launched at a price of just 99 cents in Apple's Overline. The application is said to be based on actual symmetry to beauty, it is very scientific in nature. The limitation in an iPhone camera makes it a more light-hearted game and not a rigid tool. For example, the apps calculate the width of a person's mouth relative to its distance from their eyes.


The results may differ depending on the angle of the photo or the surrounding light. A scientific research states that a three-dimensional figure while put into an “Ugly Meter” application is not fair as it only works with two-dimensional pictures.
