‘BeFake’ | What the Tech? App of the Day
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (WHAT THE TECH?) — One of the most popular smartphone apps over the last year has been “BeReal” – and now there is “BeFake.”
Where BeReal shares what you’re doing at any one moment during the day, BeFake ironically sensationalizes that a little bit.
Everyone gets an alert to take a photo at a certain time. Instead of posting a natural selfie, BeFake edits the image to look unrealistic, using artificial intelligence.
Rather than my wife and I watching TV, BeFake puts us in medieval times where she’s on a horse.
In another boring photo, BeFake turned me into a superhero. Or, you can tell the app what you want to be doing.
The photos can be shared with everyone else using the app.
In the month since it was released, BeFake has surged near the top of the App Store charts.
It’s a free app and it’s gaining new users every day, building a social network where everyone is doing something spectacular.
You can find BeFake in the App Store and the Google Play Store.
