Create Hilarious Versions of Friends and Loved-Ones with the New Animate Me! App

Animate Me! allows users to select any photo from their galleries or Facebook accounts—or take a shot if you don’t have one handy—and animate the subject’s head by letting you move its head and its mouth to the tune or sound that you chose it to go along with.

Furthermore, the user can accessorize the photos chosen with items such as hats, mustaches, tattoos, eye patches, and even pacifiers.  You can animate more "heads" (for group pictures for example), accessorize further, and add more sounds either through purchases or points.

App Stats:

  • Price: Free with in-app purchases
  • Size: 39.9 MB
  • Compatibility: Requires iOS 6.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5.


For starters, it only takes a few steps to create and share your hilarious creations as the app is so simple and easy to use that even kids can have fun with it. The free version offers a good sample of what the app offers and is very persuasive in urging folks to be more creative and try the app’s other offerings—which they won’t be sorry in doing. 

Animate Me! is perfect as a greeting card and, as the icons and sounds are non-offensive, it is a great tool to mess around with friends and share some friendly laughs. I love the idea of earning coins and getting access to bonus packs as well. My stubby fingers need some training to master outlining heads and mouths in my iPhone so I switched to the iPad, and now I have been lazing around all day doing one for all my friends and family. 


It will be very tempting to get carried away and buy all these in-app purchases while you are having fun imagining how your friends will look like with different accessories so beware! 

Final Rating: 4.5 out of 5 stars.

Make a friend or a love one laugh today. Download the app now and surprise them with an Animate Me! picture on their walls to start their day.
