Custom e-cards and photo books level up on Facebook with LifePix.
The Facebook app, from gaming studio Digital Madhouse, officially launched last week and takes full advantage of Facebook’s latest enhancements.
"With the rollout of Facebook’s Timeline, the focus is on friend’s images and sharing the stories of your life,” said managing director Jamey Meirndorf. “LifePix allows people to personalize and enhance those images, sharing more colorful stories with ease.”
Photo editing turned creative gameplay, Lifepix stands apart by allowing users to access more than just their own Facebook photos. The LifePix photo selector provides easy access to all photos from all of the user’s Facebook friends.
With LifePix, players add personality to photos using borders, objects, text and more.
Users have access to readymade templates or can start from scratch, and the free app allows for various layers, colors, saturations as well as photo rotation and sizing.
Users can show off designs on their wall, post to a friend’s or schedule completed projects for delivery to friends and family via the My Reminders tool. Creators can collect Likes on art and get noticed as a LifePix pro, unlocking special objects and items.
The app is free to use and features a large selection of free objects and items. Additional items can be unlocked via a subscription plan or purchased on an individual basis. Once purchased, the user will have unlimited use of the object or item.
In conjunction with the launch, following the successful beta run, users will also receive a 24-hour free trial of all paid items and objects.
With over 100 hundred years of combined gaming industry experience, the 14-person team at Digital Madhouse has utilized their console gaming experience to keep the app user friendly and fun. LifePix projects — whether it be a calendar, e-card or photo book — are essentially printable, social games for photos.
