FaceApp - despite the controversy there's a reason it is popular!

FaceApp is high in the ranks of then Google Play store at the moment, and despite the controversies of white-washing, there's a reason. In short, it's really fun, simple to use and an all round well-designed app that has some great filters and effects.
The purpose of the app is simple - simply load it up, take a photo, play with a few dials and then before you know it there's your desired outcome - whether it be a new gender, a younger self, an older self - etc. You name it - FaceApp can do it.

Coins, a great new wallpaper app seems to have rrecognized this, providing a great pack of lvie wallpapers that are both interactive, yet not distracting - adding to the overall user experience instead of distracting from it.

With Coins, you can choose from a variety of simple wallpapers (koi fish, zodiac years, lucky symbols, etc) and then have a number of coins float calmly over the image. Check out the video above and you will see exactly what I mean. One of the best features is that the coins actually tap into your phones accelerator and move as you shift the screen about - tilt the phone to the left and you will be able to see the coins begin to gradually drift in that direction.
