Dia’s Likeness: Written Android App Review
There are usually two things which people attempt to determine when a newborn child is near. First, they try to accurately guess how old he or she is. Second, they size up the parents to see who the child looks like the most.
Concept and Functionality:
Though not a mother myself, I’ve come across many occasions where a sweet, sleeping child was subjected to intense debate and scrutiny. It’s time to bring technology into this and find a way to settle these discussions once and for all. Do it for the baby!
The app is remarkably simple to use. All you have to do is gather three photos; one of each parent and one of the baby. You can take pictures of different parts of the body such as eyes, mouth, nose, fingers, and even toes.
Once you’ve settled on three images, Dia’s Likeness places them on the same screen so you can easily compare features between parents. The app allows you to keep track of which parent a body feature resembles. When you’ve finished comparing you can press the “Some Up” button, which will give you a final score and analysis of which parent the baby looks like the most.
If you go camera crazy and decide to compare almost every feature you might share, don’t forget to clear out the photo library on your phone or tablet. Dia’s Likeness also stores photos within the app, so don’t forget to clear those out as well.
Initially I thought that the app automatically analyze the photos and determine similarities, but it doesn’t. This is both good and bad because it allows you work with the other parent, but at the same time it could lead to a little bit of debate between the two of you (which is what you tried to avoid in the first place by downloading the app).
If you like, you have the option to share your comparison results with friends and family via popular social platforms like Facebook, Google+, and Twitter. You can also share results via email and text message.
As I mentioned before, the app stores photos you’ve taken or imported. Though it might cause a bit of photo clutter, it’s perfect for parents who are looking for a second opinion from friends and family. This saves you from having to reimport or retake photos whenever you want to compare a body feature.
Though it’s quite a handy app and provides a bit of entertainment for new parents (remember, nothing scientific here), I feel like Dia’s Likeness should offer a few more features for a paid app. There’s also a free version, but it’s not compatible with the Nexus 7. If your device is compatible, I would try the free version first before downloading this one.
