I swear that when my little brother gets drunk, he can do a perfect impression of Heath Ledger’s The Joker. With the LipMe app, he could essentially bring Ledger back to life with a cackling voice over and an easy cut and paste job.
Along with the added editing features that Aviary’s new API provides, LipMe also allows users to cut the mouth out of any face- a newly taken picture of a friend, celebrity, animal, or even an inanimate object – with a simple swipe of the screen, and create an impersonation using their device’s front facing camera. The app allows for users to add their voice to any photo, edit it using the Aviary tool, and share it through Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, email, and even our newly developed contest page on the LipMe website.
