Mug Life - 3D Face Animator
Description
"New Apps We Love" - Apple "Simple Photos Turned Into Super-Realistic 3D Animations Rock the Web" - Sputnik News "I have to say that Mug Life is probably the most stupid and funny application in history." - KOCPC.com "Being able to create 3D animated characters out of static images is much more amusing than it has any right to be." - Mobile Syrup - App of the Week "What makes Mug Life special is that despite being obscenely juvenile, it’s really powerful." - The Next Web Instantly create stunning photo-real clones of friends, family, and celebrities. You don't have to be technical or artistic. All it takes is a photo. Download community animations and paste them to your photos, or just have fun playing with faces. (It's addicting.) Then, when inspiration strikes, create original animations and memes. Export and share your creations as high definition videos, stills, animated GIFs, and animated Facebook avatars. You can download all content for free, import your own images, Mug any image, and export and share an unlimited number of Mugs, entirely ad free. If you like Mug Life, you’ll love our Pro Tools. Pro Tools adds power tools (Creative Mode) for creating and editing Mugs. In addition, iPhone X users also get the (new!) Performance Mode, unleashing the expressive power of your TrueDepth camera for live performances. It’s like Animoji from any photo! Pro Tools Unlimited Access Subscription • You can optionally subscribe to Pro Tools for unlimited access to all the advanced features of Mug Life. • Subscriptions are billed monthly or annually, depending on the subscription plan. Alternately, a one-time purchase option is also available. • Subscriptions auto-renew, unless cancelled 24-hours in advance prior to the end of the current period. The subscription fee is charged to your iTunes account upon confirmation of purchase. You can manage your subscription or turn off auto-renewal by going to your Apple account settings after purchase. • Terms and Conditions: https://www.muglife.com/terms • Privacy Policy: https://www.muglife.com/privacy Empower your creativity and sense of humor with Mug Life. We can't wait to see what you come up with! With Mug Life you can... • Take a photo using your camera. High quality photos of faces with neutral expressions work the best. • Import any photo from your Camera Roll, or use photos from with Facebook for albums, Instagram pictures, Twitter images, etc. If it’s got a face, you can animate it! • Search for fun images to animate, including paintings, pictures, sketches, tattoos, dolls, action figures, drawings, photographs, renders, or illustrations. But that’s just the beginning! Any photo with a recognizable face can be great! For example, statue & sculpture photographs are particularly fun, as are photo frames taken from video & film, animals, costumes, make-up like body paint & more. You can make animated GIFs and videos from anything as long as it has a face. • Manipulate faces in your photo. This is where the MAGIC really starts! • Apply ANY community-made Mug animations you like for free. Like a meme you find? Use it, but put it on YOUR photos. • Not just one face at a time! Got a close-up of a group of friends? Yup, it works! But it’s hard to fit a whole baseball team in one photo, so focus on great faces! • Instantly share your Mugs on Facebook, Instagram, and other social media. It’s fantastic for making memes on the fly. GIFs, video, and JPG formats are supported. • Troll your friends with crazy Mugs putting their face in the spotlight! • Send texts messages with GIFs or post videos with the fun! • Animate your own Mugs from scratch with Creative Mode! All you need is a photo with a face! • Create live performances with 16 great voice filters and do live motion capture in Performance Mode. It’s like Animoji from any photo! Make group photos sing in chorus! Performance Mode requires an iPhone X, but Mug Life still works great on any iPhone or iPad.

The app is very expensive! You can’t record sounds. It’s a waste of time!
Garbage
by cadman56 on 2020/02/09 03:32
Would be a good program if they didn’t make you pay to littery do anything. Yes you can bring a picture in and apply some pre-made affects. However you cannot even do a couple custom affects to test it out. They give you a free 7 day trial but you need to give them your credit card info to do it. They should at least give you the trial without requiring your card or payment info.
STUPID
by xafhgcx on 2020/02/03 21:12
IF YOUR GONNA MAKE ME PAY FOR EVERYTHING MAKE US PAY FOR THE APP LIKE WHY WOULD YOU MAKE THE APP FREE IF YOU CAN’T EVEN PLAY IT JUST TERRIBLE
It’s definitely fun
by madcopygirl on 2020/02/03 00:59
Of course I’d like to be able to better manipulate my creations but I guess the app needs to make money somehow. It’s only fair!

This app is a lot of fun. There is a short learning curve, but so much content to explore. I just got it, but I'm looking forward to spending a lot of free moments using this app.

I have been making a LOT of funny GIFs on this app and sharing it with my parents! Nothing actually wrong with this app!!! 👍👍👍 The thing I got creeped out by, and please don’t make fun of me, but I saw a scary momo GIF on there and I got kinda of disturbed 😦
Crazy fun

Must have photo realistic art
by ALTsomething on 2020/01/02 07:46
I had seen other artists use this app on Instagram for their artwork. However it must be super photo realistic artwork In order for this app to work. Mine is too cartoon like I guess. I tried to return it and get a refund. Apple said that wasn’t good enough, so now I’m stuck with this app for a year and I can’t even use it.
Just don't download

Yea i know it says FREE but not.. I wanted to customize my mouth and stuff but it's not free. I had to pay money.. AND I KNOW RICH GURL I HAVE NO CARD YET!!!!! MAKE THE WHOLETHING FREE AND ILL MAME IT 5 STAR AGAIN!!!!!!! Ugh I wish I could report this right now
Horrible game
by uvohcytc on 2020/01/01 01:10
You have to pay to create your own meme and there’s nothing fun to do. So please fix this so people don’t have to pay for something fun to do and this is a real problem.
Good affordable price, fun experience, funny and unique concept, would recommend
by Raptor claw 1627 on 2019/12/31 03:19
This is a really good app overall. It has several cool features and preloaded animations. Best experience if given premium. Only issue is the complexity of the app design. Would like to have it easier, but these type of apps require some skill and patience, but overtime it gets easier. Other wise a good affordable price and like they said “limitless designs”.
Lacks features but still an achievement
by Villen310mrt on 2019/12/28 23:40
This app is good for simple animations on simple faces (which is still a towering achievement of 3D mapping and animation) but it sorely lacks necessary features to push it to the true pro level. The app seems narrowly targeted at people who want to make silly memes but it's capable of much more if only the developers tried to make it into more of a tool. 1. No way to set video or gif frame sizes. They arbitrarily downscale the input. If my device has the power for it, it should be possible to increase the resolution or override it under power-user settings. 2. No way to freeze parts of the images e.g. overlapping hair, objects etc. get animated along with the face and there's no way to stop this. Need an implementation of a freeze mask like in the Photoshop liquify tool. 3. Need ways to animate non-face objects. Some more geometry wireframes than just the face would help greatly. 4. Need more control on the alignment points. There too rough, likely by design to cater to simple usage.
Refund please

Yea u might think I’m crazy but my fear is momo so get rid of that on then I will download it again so sorry but really I hate that monster.
$29.99 one-time fee
by DrKate aka The Rock Doctor on 2019/12/10 17:07
When I read app reviews stupidly forgot to filter them by “most recent.” All the “top reviews” indicated the one-time fee was $3.99 which seemed reasonable to me. I downloaded the app and was met with a subscription fee of $11.99/month or $29.99/one-time. That’s absurd. Deleted.
Yet another trash app that’s costs monthly for no reason
by Jaymacklez on 2019/12/09 02:26
Don’t get this app. It’s just gunna force you to start paying monthly for a cheap gimmick that’s costs them nothing. Mug life.. u are the reason the world will burn. Ur trash. Just waiting for the developer to copy paste some dumb bs now

Complete total scam. I will not buy a stupid little feature just to make it look better.
Not free
by hhfhjajj on 2019/11/26 16:10
Tricks you by saying free. Then you can’t even get into it without paying big fees. Thumbs down. I give it a 5 out of 7 would not recommend.
Cool

Can we stop with subscriptions?
by Sgsuperman105 on 2019/11/22 00:49
I’ve already paid a grand for the phone, I shouldn’t have to pay monthly for an app that can make a cat smile. Beyond pointless to spend money on this.

This APP is legitimately fun. Get this app if you like having fun with your pictures and messing around with them, you and all your friends and family will get lots of laugh’s from it. I’m just a random dude who got this app and loved it & what better way to share the love than to tell others . Live your life , have fun , take pictures, then fool around with the pictures lol 😋 5 ⭐️’s

Was hoping to be able to record audio and have the face react
by AlanLaBudde on 2019/10/16 23:48
I have purchased the ProTools and was hoping somewhere I could record audio and have the mouth moving vaguely insinc… Chatter pix can do this -albeit in a crummy way ha-I think it’s the perfect thing for your program to be able to do… So far I am very pleased and have many ideas for animating my own drawings etc. etc. and sculptures I’ll look around perhaps I just haven’t found the functions all the functions yet! Can’t seem to find the developers response

Mug life
by unicornliada on 2019/10/15 20:15
I think this is a funny game, but in the App Store it never said creating your own mug has a price. That is the whole reason I wanted this game. It looked really fun and I was going to mug all my friends. Then I realized I could only do mugs that already exist. So my whole point of this review is to say, you shouldn’t have to pay to create mugs!🙂😕
I would have given it two and a half stars if I could.
by Roxanne Jordan on 2019/10/14 14:05
Pretty much my only problem is that it costs quite an amount of money to do what I thought the game does. Doing fun animations with pictures, and making them come alive. but this just has all of it planned out for you. I sort of want a game where you can do, what it shows you can do in the adds, and a game where I can make my own animations with pictures without having it cost money.
You need to pay

by LittleD360 on 2019/10/12 15:54
This app is fun, but I will not spend a dime on it. I watched the video and immediately wanted to try all of the features. After it was done downloading. I opened the app and realized you have to pay for everything in the video. I understand you need to make money, but can you please give us at least some of the features in the video?

Great as far as functionality but other problems
by Walk After Christ on 2019/09/22 07:38
I tried it out and the app is amazing at animating faces for gifs, but one major problem is there is no filter for what people put on. I deleted it because pornography was showing up under trending and I don’t wan my kids scrolling down and seeing that stuff.
Most Fun App Ever
by 1lisa2play on 2019/09/21 09:43
I’m still learning this app bc there’s so much it can do! I love it! The only thing I don’t like is the app pushing to share on social media. I don’t share anything bc I have a crazy ex husband who stalks me, so I truly despise being pushed to sign into the app with Facebook! Also every social media site, the app tries to get me to post on every single site there is! Some people need privacy, simply for their own safety and the safety of their children, elderly parents and more!
Live it but ....

A Month Later
by Emperor Palpatine Rules on 2019/09/02 02:36
Decided to write another review for this app after messing around with it longer. This app’s a cool concept. Lots of potential. I just wish you could manually adjust your pics in the free version. The app isn’t always accurate with its auto adjust, so it just feels unfair that I have to pay to see if it works well for my pics, at least with manual adjust, that is. I do understand the reasons for the other in-app purchases. I’d also suggest that you guys update your video to better stress what’s free and what’s not. I know, it’s specified in the description, but a good majority of people who are attracted to this app (especially kids) don’t read the description. Hope my suggestions help and keep up the good work.👍 Edit: Thank you for replying so fast. After checking similar apps and their trailers, I realize it’s unfair of me to ask you guys to update your trailer when so many apps don’t specify there are in-app purchases in their apps’ trailers. People just need to read the description. Personally, I didn’t have a problem with the trailer because I read your app’s description, but many reviews complained the trailer was misleading, so I just figured I’d suggest a solution to appease your audience. Although, after watching your trailer (app store version) again, I did notice out of all 30 seconds, only 10 seconds of it actually advertises free content, and most of those 10 seconds are just a couple title transitions and a couple seconds of sitting faces/expression transfer before moving on to more paid content. The focus is clearly and majorly on the paid content, which just happens to be the part everyone comes to this app for. Not the best way to advertise all the wonderful things the free version of your app offers, if you ask me. Maybe switching the app from free to paid would be a more honest alternative? I’d also suggest checking your competitor, Talkr, as their trailer advertises both the free stuff and paid in a more equal manor. Getting on to the other part of my review, I did not see any response to the issue of having to pay to manually adjust your pics. I understand you guys need the money to keep this app going and paying the bills and the best way to do that is to have features people want to buy. But, as I stated by above, the app isn’t always accurate on its auto adjust. If you have an alternative solution to the manual adjust, I’m all ears. Thank you again for respond so quick to my review.
Malfunction?
by diabanarijanna on 2019/08/25 15:28
Can’t create or use the perform feature anymore. Everytime I’ve selected my photo and then go to tap “create” or “perform” it starts buffering and it never loads. I’ve deleted and re-downloaded the app but it does the same thing. Then I tried it on my friend’s phone thinking it was just a problem with mine and I could only see the “create” option and no “perform” option or any subscription option to buy it. Then even when I did click “create” it stays on the buffering screen forever. I really would like for this to be fixed because I love the performance feature and I cant create the videos I want anymore. :( (Also, I do have an Iphone X in case the feature is only for that type of phone, but it just doesnt work anymore)
Worst app ever.
by AtheerAbbas on 2019/08/25 10:05
I suspect it would be bad because the awful foul design, but decided to give it a try anyway. It immediately asked me to pay money in order to use the app, which is ridiculous.
Rip off
by Ordway2000 on 2019/08/19 01:37
When you can’t open the app without purchasing then it is not an in app purchase. If you believe in this product go ahead and put the price out there. Shameful deception. I do not trust you!!!! So i got the same boiler plate response that everyone else received which basically said that we all misunderstood how to use the app. I know when i went back to see if the developer was right i was once again slapped in the face with the “Free”Trial” offer. If you have ever clicked on one of those land mines just know that you will automatically be charged the inflated subscription which will require a simple 5 step process to cancel. To the developers and to Apple, if it takes one click to spend money it should only take one click to return it when we realize we have been ripped off. I keep getting harassed by this developer to correct my inaccurate statements. I’m not sure what to say. An app that i have to click through a minefield of “free trials” to use the app is not a free app. This app amounts to click-bate my purpose with this review is to let people know that if they don’t want to spend money for a subscription and they don’t want to have to click past screens to decline that subscription they shouldn’t download this app. “The customer is not always right but the customer is always the customer.” Zig Ziegler

by Masterdiamond6 on 2019/08/11 19:25
So I downloaded the app and I thought I could edit someone’s face. I can, but I can’t move it around like it does in the video because it costs money. To anyone reading this review, if you want to move faces around like in the video, but for free, I wouldn’t recommend this app. You have to look up a certain thing with a certain animation and caption to put that on the face you’re using. And to all those people who pay for that membership thing, it’s not worth it. Also add a filter thing for searches so any kids who might be using or watching someone use this app, that they wouldn’t see the horror themes and inappropriate themes. Please developer, make the face editing thing free.
Nah
by Brian3318 on 2019/08/09 02:43

Please read
by SupriseReveiws on 2019/07/24 18:57
I think it works great and is really nice except for the fact you need to pay just to create your own face animation. I mean - maybe if you had one free animation you could do and then pay then this app would be great. But I deleted it after 3 minutes so yeah. Good idea and work but it just wasn’t me. Though I bet others LOVE this app. Maybe if there where also more free emotions and expressions you could do that would be great. BYE! 🙃

Free to download, not to try

This app is deceiving. Yes it’s free to download and install but you can’t even try it without paying. Has a lot of downloads but I wonder how many were actually able to use it.

by gamersgudkdndnuj5 on 2019/07/18 01:54
First of all, I know you all want this to make ur own animations, right? Well, you really want it! It’s some crap about a monthly subscription, and it only comes with free dumb things like “who wants some” it’s so stupid! I recommend getting it, just to see that I’m right, and untill u make ur MAIN feature free, I will never download it. Don’t make a developer response saying stuff like “this is a mistake, everything’s free! So I give this 0 stars in all. I only gave it 1 star because it’s the least u can rate, but you know, I would give this 0 stars if I could! It didn’t even look real, like on the video it shows u! Bye.
I feel dumb for buying this for $25.

Unlike most apps “Mug Life” charges an annual fee! The app was fun and all, but the novelty wore off for me after the first month. A year later I’m asked to renew the subscription. Beware!
Love it
by Justmejim on 2019/07/10 22:58
Fun , cool , takes time and practice but it’s very functional. On a tablet it may be much easier, I use on IPhone. Custom features take a technique. Anyone can do it. Just takes a little time for custom speech. Touch and go super easy and start right now.
Absolutely Trash

Why cost money
by roomy nelly on 2019/06/20 02:04
First off I thought this game was going to be good. I looked at the reviews and mostly they were all bad comments. First I was like “it’s just peoples opinion.” But then I started to see it like they did. So first off why buy tools to animate it. That is not fair. Yes it was cheap but still. Isn’t that pointless? I suggest a improvement on the game where it is free. I don’t recommend this app. And the person who had the idea of this app, sorry most people don’t like it. Report back. Improvement please!
Free

I was tired of seeing people complain about the 4 dollars. I hate that people expect stuff for free. So I downloaded it to pay the 4 dollars and tell them to shut up. But apparently now it is much more expensive... 2 dollars per week and 30 dollars per year or something. So I guess I’m on their side now... And the snarky responses from the developers are super classy.
Cool idea - terrible pricing
by Sweetcash on 2019/06/12 03:02
Cool idea but never got a chance to try. You Immediately have to sign up with a paid plan - paid plans make no sense. It an app - price it at a price point where it’s a no brainer. $30 a yr?? most likely people will use it a few times and get bored and never use again.
Disappointing
by kinda_mad101 on 2019/06/11 02:03
When I saw the ad I thought it looked interesting, but when I downloaded it, it said I had to pay to use almost everything. It was also a little confusing to me. The only thing I could figure out was how to make a picture of someone into a gif thing and even after that the graphics were bad. I did not like this app, maybe it’s just that I don’t understand, idk.
Adjustable key frames
by Somps on 2019/06/08 07:26
2019-06-08 (June) Hey, Mug Life is pretty darn good. Something that I have thought about from the beginning. It needs a key frame editor. You know, when you tap on the square box & you get several boxes including “Pose Face”, could you add a key frame editor? I made the lips form the shapes to look like the words “Why me?” Looks pretty good except it’s spread across 20 seconds and if we had a key frame editor, we could grab the key frames and slide them all to the left so that I don’t have to spend a lot of time remakibg the lips. It takes forever. If I could simply slide the key frames to the left, it would speed up the lip movement and finish it in the first 10 seconds allowing me to do more in the later half. I love it though! Thank you
Never made it to the actual app. Endless tutorial wouldn’t go away.
by ScottByrns on 2019/06/07 23:54
No idea if it’s any good. Never got past the endless “tap all the things you don’t want to tap” tutorial.

Expensive, and hard to use
by Speedyfalcon on 2019/05/26 21:12
Firstly you have to pay money to do anything on this app, also the apps user interface is disgusting. It’s so hard to find where everything is and where to go. This app is trash do not download it.

Money
by Artgod on 2019/05/20 20:42
Disclose your cost upfront, don’t hide behind your download.
Impressive
by DavidSeek1986 on 2019/05/16 05:29
Absolute impressive App. I barely wver write reviews, but this App deserves it. And pricing is perfectly fine. Just the weekly pricing is an obvious rip off. But 10 bucks for a year is perfectly fine. Even cheap considering development costs. I can for sure see a nice exit for those guys selling their technology to Snap or whomever.
Very cool
by Sammiesaxonphotography on 2019/05/16 02:22
Cool app, a little scary at times but very fun. Can’t wait to see what the developers do next with this tech.
Love it

Excellent Face Animator!
by Slackmeister on 2017/11/15 01:17
This is an awesome app. I was able to quickly create little sequence. Having a great creating all kinds of snippets of animation that I later splice together in a video editor. It would be cool to have a quick library of phonetics mouth postures and store them for quick access while creating your custom animations. Example, “B” mouth position, “Oh” mouth postion and a “rrrrr” mouth position. You can the spell out B-rrrrr-Oh to animate the word “bro” and then also save the word as a user library for later recall. That can be version 2! 🤔 BTW, thank you for making the app very affordable yet powerful. I hope that you guys don’t turn this into a monthly subscription model like other greedy app developers out there. Instead, I recommend having add-ons for future additional features.
Not what you make it seem.
by Unsatified Lil Girl on 2018/06/01 22:49
This app interested me as soon as I saw it. And so, I downloaded it! I was very exited, and I got all set up and so. However, you never specified that it cost money for the custom. I know, It’s not a lot. But I’m only 12, I have an overprotective mother, and I don’t have my own card. The fact that it is not free needs to be specified! Also, I think a little more should be free. Come on, At leas let us control little bits of the eyes and mouth, like seriously, anyway, in general it is a good app and works great. It just has false advertisement and it too expensive for most kids, so I wouldn’t recommend this if you want to make your friend look like a fool for free, cause it’s not gonna happen. Ok, I made this after your response, anyway, you didn’t get what I said. I said, this is false advertisement, I did not complain about it being useless! You can’t be creative in this app. You use what other people create. In the photos that show the person customizing the actions of the person. I immediately thought it was free, because there was no mention of it costing money. Yes, it does say in app purchases, but that doesn’t specify WHAT costs money. And I can not buy the extras only because I’m not allowed too. So it dose t make this very enjoyable, if we could just move the eyes or mouth, and the others have to cost money, it would be WAAAAAAAY better. So please TRY to understand my question and point of view. Thank you!
Suggestions to make it Better
by Critique Fantastique on 2017/12/25 14:20
This app is a great idea and all, but it is a similar to SnapChat. Although the MugLife software is different from the SnapChat software and it does a different thing, the app layout is alarmingly the same. Each meme is like clicking a story and it looks very much like the average SnapChat page. I think that this app should get a new, better looking design that’s fun and appealing. It’s an awesome idea, I just think maybe it could be more fun and colorful, and maybe even cooler looking than SnapChat itself. Also, maybe advertise that meme-adding portion as well, if someone can’t afford the creative tools (i.e. little kids). The price it’s fine, but people should know beforehand that they have to pay to get most of the app, or at least be aware of another option on the app (most people do not look at the “in app purchases” bit before downloading).
Not actually free (misleading preview)
by Sarahstarr88 on 2018/01/04 22:39
So I got this app hoping to just have fun with my pictures but I ran into two problems. 1.) it because I have a beard it couldn’t figure out where my mouth was meaning that all the mouth animations ended up on my mustache (which looked pretty creepy). 2.) Everything they show in the preview requires a $3.99 in app purchase. It’s not that I can’t afford the $4 it’s the misleading nature of it all. If the app is $3.99 make it $3.99 don’t make people wait until they download it to show the real price. Perhaps a free lite version and a $3.99 full version would be a better solution. It would at least be more strait forward. Finally, and this is just a small thing, it isn’t yet optimized for the iPhone X screen. There were parts of the UI that were covered up by the notch at the top of my phone. This is a potentially fun app but the misleading advertisement and the fact that it can’t figure out my beard turned me off to it.
Great, but there’s a problem
by SadSoup on 2018/06/14 20:37
I recently downloaded this app out of curiosity and I love it! I’m honestly considering spending the $3.99 to unlock the other features, but I couldn’t help but notice an issue (?) when saving my animated pictures as gifs. The quality significantly went down. My once nearly HD quality picture was now a lower quality gif. Everything just seems more pixelated, especially the lips. I’m not sure if it’s my device, the app itself, or something that just can’t be helped and happens naturally. Other than that, this is probably the most entertaining and useful app I have on my phone!
Bad experience
by Zugalz on 2019/01/11 21:20
My review had difficult questions for the devs to answer, and somehow they got it deleted. So I’ll just leave it at this. The premium experience is over priced and they would love for you to forget about it, there is no real world reason to charge for this app on a yearly basis, they are adding new content regularly but that is the free part, the part you pay for yearly is the power tools that are already developed. The other big problem is the lack of clear instructions for canceling your expensive membership. You can contact them directly and they will point you in the right direction, but people will not typically do that, and I have some knowledge about people’s habits in this regard with my experience in this industry. The instructions for this type of thing should be layed out in the F.A.Q. Section of their app, they could even just add a link to apples page which is already made, that lays out the steps. It feels like bad will toward their customer base to not do so.
Lies
by Jacie Vore on 2017/11/07 22:14
This app says it will make you look amazing but here's some news for you buddy it doesn't all it does is over lap these face features on top of your face it will make you face change color and if your going to make an app that is like snap chat don't copy it almost completely and the developer responds better not get all smart with me I've read a lot of the reviews and half of them are fake and the bad reviews have a good point yes it does cost money and yes it is at a cheap price but some people don't have the card to do it with and some of us don't have the time to mess around with it my mom has a baby so she doesn't have the time to do she has to take care of the baby so nice try in an app but it needs some improvements a lot if improvements so at least tell the truth about rather then say something that's not true because more then likely people are going to download it like it then notice that your lying delete the app and give a bad review and yes it is your fault
Rip off
by Ordway2000 on 2019/08/19 01:37
When you can’t open the app without purchasing then it is not an in app purchase. If you believe in this product go ahead and put the price out there. Shameful deception. I do not trust you!!!! So i got the same boiler plate response that everyone else received which basically said that we all misunderstood how to use the app. I know when i went back to see if the developer was right i was once again slapped in the face with the “Free”Trial” offer. If you have ever clicked on one of those land mines just know that you will automatically be charged the inflated subscription which will require a simple 5 step process to cancel. To the developers and to Apple, if it takes one click to spend money it should only take one click to return it when we realize we have been ripped off. I keep getting harassed by this developer to correct my inaccurate statements. I’m not sure what to say. An app that i have to click through a minefield of “free trials” to use the app is not a free app. This app amounts to click-bate my purpose with this review is to let people know that if they don’t want to spend money for a subscription and they don’t want to have to click past screens to decline that subscription they shouldn’t download this app. “The customer is not always right but the customer is always the customer.” Zig Ziegler
Ok app. Could be better.
by warlord1263 on 2018/05/07 00:22
I got this app thinking it could be pretty fun to mess around with but it was fun for about five minutes and then I realized that the reason I got the app was so I could make pictures come to life with my own controls. I looked for a while to find the option to create my own and when I found it I was disappointed to see that it costs four dollars to access that feature. This kind of ruined the app for me because the whole reason I got the app that was supposed to be free was to create my own face motions and that feature isn’t even available unless you are willing to shell out money. I also don’t like how the fact that you have to buy that feature wasn’t advertised at all before I got the app. You should just make the app $4 if you are going to advertise the feature that you have to pay for in the app before you get it.
Suggestions!
by ryancarty on 2017/12/31 15:34
This app is awesome! Makes you look kind of like a good video game character and his freaky. I have a couple suggestions: -I would redesign the app with a more modern, flat, minimalistic, colored design. Right now it feels a little cheesy like it was made several years ago. I don’t mean this as an insult, its not a bad design, it’s just not the current design style and would make the app look more legit because it appears to be doing really well -I would focus less on Memes inherently. Keep making lots of awesome face animations and give us the option to add our own meme text, but when I’m forced to use meme text with a certain expression it feels locked in. The animation tool is really cool and sophisticated seeming, and it should be a face animation app with the option to make memes, Not a meme app with animations, if that makes sense. -Enhance the account creation and abilities **-Check out the app FYUSE. They have an awesome, unique camera related ability too so they are in a similar category. They have a very modern design, and a social network built in, in addition to the regular sharing options. They are a good example of all my notes. Awesome app, thanks! Gonna show/freak out some friends.
An Okay App But Not Worth It
by ScarlettFrey1995 on 2019/01/07 16:13
You have to pay to access anything worth using on this app. While the app itself is free and plenty of pre-made effects are available for free the process they showed in the ad is not free and requires purchase. The app works fine and has plenty of effects for free but after a few minutes of playing around with pre-made options it gets boring and stale. If you feel like forking out money to access the DIY feature go right ahead but I will not be. I deleted the app. It’s just not worth it. Without the DIY feature it’s boring and repetitive. In my opinion they should make the app itself cost money or explain that the features they are advertising cost money so that people will not download their app under false pretenses thinking what they want is free when it’s not.
EXCELLENT
by Bobbiwho on 2018/04/02 00:59
I never write reviews unless there is something in it for me. i.e. hints, walk through etc. I am writing this review because I totally love it!!! After using the free part for a while I shelled out the few bucks to see what else it would do. What can I say more than I love it. It has had me LOL literally. One last comment. I did have an issue. I Emailed the developer and within hours they contacted me back. I'm happy with the response and outcome Update: four months later I’m still loving this app. It’s been updated and improved several times. Devs are top notch professionals.
Wow. Never again
by bruthasmith on 2019/05/01 20:54
Download the app used it didn’t have any problem with that stuff forgot about it. Download it again just now to use it and saw the 12-year-old kid review and the way you talked down to them and treated them like crap and try to reword the response to make it look like they wanted free stuff we’re not all they were doing is giving you constructive criticism from one of your customers point of view.... Has made me certain that I’m going to delete the app after posting this review and never use anything I find is made by you ever again you should be ashamed of yourself that’s not how business carries themselves —- edit —- That’s a disingenuous response it’s the number one most cited review on your page right now you know exactly what girl I’m talking about and then you immediately shift to the old the positive reviews is dismissive. Also attempting to make the conversation go private by offering support via email is only an effort to silence someone who speak publicly and negatively so if you have anything to say you can stay here everyone can see your response thank you very much. The very way you worded it correct other peoples misunderstandings clearly shows you have no intent on taking responsibility .... good day.
Excellent App, and Creative Mode is Well Worth It!
by TyCooper2010 on 2017/12/28 05:27
I’ve been using this app to make animated GIFs of my family for the past 3 or 4 days, and it’s been awesome! I very rarely spend money on apps, and yet I almost immediately splurged on the one-time $3.99 upgrade cost, because I really wanted the extra features. They’re incredibly robust and responsive for just being an iPhone app! As far as the features that already exist, I have almost nothing but positive things to say. However, there is a feature that I would absolutely LOVE to see added, if technically possible: Live facial-tracking using the iPhone’s camera. While the point-based animating system is excellent, it’s still sometimes difficult to get a completely realistic looking animation, even after watching the tutorials. Being able to use the camera on the iPhone to replicate my own expressions (very similarly to the “Animojis” on the iPhone X) would make this application a monstrously powerful tool, and is the only thing between me and a 5-Star review! Good work, devs!
Good fun
by Rnichola on 2018/08/04 04:03
I had fun sending animated versions of my friends back to them. It’s a unique app with good application of the technology, and usable on both basic and advanced levels. Also, the technology behind this app is impressive considering it’s price point, in my opinion. If I had any suggestions, I would say that a lot of the community animations are redundant and just poor copies of the built in ones.. consider moderating those and instead adding more high quality animations in the “mug me” section. Oh I just saw that you added two more, keep it up!
Lacks features but still an achievement
by Villen310mrt on 2019/12/28 23:40
This app is good for simple animations on simple faces (which is still a towering achievement of 3D mapping and animation) but it sorely lacks necessary features to push it to the true pro level. The app seems narrowly targeted at people who want to make silly memes but it's capable of much more if only the developers tried to make it into more of a tool. 1. No way to set video or gif frame sizes. They arbitrarily downscale the input. If my device has the power for it, it should be possible to increase the resolution or override it under power-user settings. 2. No way to freeze parts of the images e.g. overlapping hair, objects etc. get animated along with the face and there's no way to stop this. Need an implementation of a freeze mask like in the Photoshop liquify tool. 3. Need ways to animate non-face objects. Some more geometry wireframes than just the face would help greatly. 4. Need more control on the alignment points. There too rough, likely by design to cater to simple usage.
I love this app!
by goco47 on 2019/04/03 21:04
So when I'm scrolling through instagram alot of times the ads are misleading or just straight up false advertising, however, i still download alot of them because they seem cool. With this app i wasn't expecting much but when i launched it the layout and everything was so awesome and immediately my expectations where passed. Although there are some things you cant do on the free version of the app i was shocked with the amount you could do! Over all, its a great app and definitely worth an install!
Malfunction?
by diabanarijanna on 2019/08/25 15:28
Can’t create or use the perform feature anymore. Everytime I’ve selected my photo and then go to tap “create” or “perform” it starts buffering and it never loads. I’ve deleted and re-downloaded the app but it does the same thing. Then I tried it on my friend’s phone thinking it was just a problem with mine and I could only see the “create” option and no “perform” option or any subscription option to buy it. Then even when I did click “create” it stays on the buffering screen forever. I really would like for this to be fixed because I love the performance feature and I cant create the videos I want anymore. :( (Also, I do have an Iphone X in case the feature is only for that type of phone, but it just doesnt work anymore)
Excellent App for Cheap $$$
by Metaldrummer213 on 2017/11/23 14:26
I’m very disappointed in the human race after reading about how people think $4 is expensive for an app of this magnitude. All the face editing apps on the AppStore and these developers pull off something new and everyone complains about $4. I guarantee each person that gave a one star review threw away $4 worth of McDonald’s just last week. Pathetic cheap community. Shame...........Shame. Not to mentioned these same people get to vote and drive cars. Terrifying concept. App is fun, exciting and cheap for what it does. Spend the $4 to get features you’ve literally never seen before in any app. Only complaint is the watermark on the bottom but at the same time who cares. Dear developers, Thank you for something new and fun and keep up the good work. BTW it’s worth $5. Update- they literally took my suggestion and made it happen 3 days later. Best developers ever!
Powerful Tool, Amazing Tech
by ERAUdarouze on 2017/11/17 03:52
This app is incredibly good at automatically recognizing faces and the animation technique rarely distorts the photo excessively. Very impressive. I’d say the biggest drawback right now is the limited animations to copy. Custom animations are too tedious. A killer feature would be to allow animations to be extracted from a front facing camera selfie video. Allow the user to quickly record anything they want, with sound! Maybe add voice emulation eventually. This app could be an outstanding application of the forthcoming avatarkit API from apple that is behind Animojis. Excited to see what your future updates entail!
Well worth the $3.99
by T1M75 on 2018/03/12 03:28
In a world where we spend billions on our entertainment yearly and thousands individually, the $3.99 tag for this app is an easy yes. I spend next to nothing on entertainment and had no desire to even read a review when it came to deciding, I knew I was going to buy it. It’s simply too much fun not to have. Think about any, AND I MEAN ANY, picture you like or dislike ( clean or dirty HAHA ) and want to change. THIS APP DOES GIFS, AND VIDEO SAVES OF EVERYTHING...think about it, then go buy it! Coupled with Face Swap, there is no limit to what you can make of yourselves or anyone else! You’re welcome Mug Life, it’s money well spent!
Excellence
by Big Daddy Peej on 2018/02/15 03:08
Dude I haven’t even used this app yet and I went through and read the best and worst comments, so now going in I know exactly what I’m getting and there’s also a clear description of what’s to expect in my head because of the comments . Who ever handles your Reviews and PR is obviously a genius . Excellent feedback ratio and not to mention it’s quite apparent that it’s not a com-gen response through reading each one . Thank you so much to the Dev team at ML and I haven’t even used the app yet .
It’s okay. Just please allow us to be creative.
by Masterdiamond6 on 2019/08/11 19:25
So I downloaded the app and I thought I could edit someone’s face. I can, but I can’t move it around like it does in the video because it costs money. To anyone reading this review, if you want to move faces around like in the video, but for free, I wouldn’t recommend this app. You have to look up a certain thing with a certain animation and caption to put that on the face you’re using. And to all those people who pay for that membership thing, it’s not worth it. Also add a filter thing for searches so any kids who might be using or watching someone use this app, that they wouldn’t see the horror themes and inappropriate themes. Please developer, make the face editing thing free.
Great App, BUT Could be even Greater!
by SuperImposer on 2018/08/30 03:51
This is a really good app for what it does. Having used it for a while on several projects, Here’s how I would make it GREAT: 1. The movements/pulls should be able to go a little further, a bit more extreme when required. 2. I would be AMAZED if a text entry prompt was added which translated the phonetic sounds to automatic mouth movements on the subject. Animating words manually is extremely difficult, but a library of mouth poses were added to accompany the phonetics if a user’s entered text...Forget 5 Stars...you’d deserve 10!
Most Fun App Ever
by 1lisa2play on 2019/09/21 09:43
I’m still learning this app bc there’s so much it can do! I love it! The only thing I don’t like is the app pushing to share on social media. I don’t share anything bc I have a crazy ex husband who stalks me, so I truly despise being pushed to sign into the app with Facebook! Also every social media site, the app tries to get me to post on every single site there is! Some people need privacy, simply for their own safety and the safety of their children, elderly parents and more!
Great but...
by MarvBox on 2017/12/26 23:54
Ugh! I'm so angry at this game! I would have given 2 and a half stars but it won't let you. I can't believe that it won't let you move the face and stuff unless you PAY!!! Also, you can't make your own words for memes if you PAY, again!!! Can you please make a way where you can pay for something else like, ummmmm, how about like where you can draw and memealize (not a real word XD) your drawings? Once you have made my plan of solution (witch I think would make, like, EVERYBODY way happy :D) can you do one of those things where you can like text people back? I would totally like that! Thank you!
Your Logo on Images
by Remove Your Logo Please on 2019/05/05 08:21
Love the app a lot. Do you have a version without your logo (web page) at the bottom of the image? I have the subscription version and thought since we were paying you would remove your logo from the images we create. That’s the privileged app creators give to those who pay. If you do not, please create one without your logo for paid subscription and those who buy the app as well; we deserve it. Thanks in advance for considering my request. Thanks for the app as well.
Not what you think
by Kittencat🐱 on 2017/11/12 04:54
Some people stumbled across this app hoping to have a fun, free experience where They can directly edit their photos. But they download it and find the only free edit is adding memes. So if you want to pay $5 (and it's worth it too) you get what you think you are getting. But most people don't want to "waste money" on a photo editor if you can just use FREE apps. Many kids can't spend money on things like this. But those who do pay will have an excellent experience with photoshop. So it depends on the type of person you are if you rate this 1 or 5 stars. But it's up to you.
Was hoping to be able to record audio and have the face react
by AlanLaBudde on 2019/10/16 23:48
I have purchased the ProTools and was hoping somewhere I could record audio and have the mouth moving vaguely insinc… Chatter pix can do this -albeit in a crummy way ha-I think it’s the perfect thing for your program to be able to do… So far I am very pleased and have many ideas for animating my own drawings etc. etc. and sculptures I’ll look around perhaps I just haven’t found the functions all the functions yet! Can’t seem to find the developers response
Very cool
by Ken Eynon on 2019/04/25 15:28
I saw this advertised on Facebook. I downloaded it just to play around with it. It’s actually a very good idea for an app. For those expecting free, this app probably cost $30,000 or more to develop and thousands to market. Most mobile apps that are useful cost thousands to make and with all the restrictions with marketing, it’s very difficult to accommodate everyone. The developer who made this did a great job! If only I had thought of it first!
Forget about pathetic Snapchat!
by Spirit Amokk on 2017/11/20 18:56
Mug Life is the best $4 I have ever spent on a mobile app! The things you can do with your static portraits are simply amazing. You can literally make any face SO ALIVE and freaky at times. If you feel that auto face scanner is not precise enough, then try to tinker with custom tracking. I have so much fun with it and my friends absolutely love it 😊 Do yourself a favor and spend $4 on this quality software because there is nothing even remotely like that on AppStore.
Thanks Mug Life! 😁👍🏻
by Tatt2freak19 on 2019/03/16 03:37
Long story short, my phone was stolen and people used my account to post vulgar things resulting in my accounts ban. After getting my phone back and some damage control, Mug Life reps were very polite and helpful in getting this portion of the problem fixed quickly and quietly. Thank You Mug Life! I enjoy this app very much and it has provided me several hours of entertainment when I needed it most! You guys rock 👊🏻.
Miracles do exist.
by Lick-itStick-it on 2018/11/05 00:55
As a lonely person this app has been a gift of great stature. I have made hundreds of avatars with the photos of my lost love. I don’t know how I would coup with my mourning were it not for this program. It has been 5 years since she was taken. Each day I live in misery until I found this app. Now with the assistance of a 10 inch tablet and her old dresses it as if the accident never happened. Thanks so much....
Boring and misleading
by WakManiak on 2018/09/10 21:31
You should have specified that the facial adapter and custom movements counted as power tools, because they are the only reason i downloaded your app. Its just stupid memes that no one even likes. Hence the title; boring and misleading. Edit: Shut up. The only thing that people wanted was the thing you advertised the most; the facial features option but you didn’t provide that so it doesn’t matter. Maybe instead of making things that people want cost money to “survive” then actually make your app better by allowing them to use it for free. This is honestly false advertising and you know it but only want money so you don’t care. Smh 🙄😒
I love it but...
by jodzilla98 on 2018/01/10 23:19
I’ve been having a ball with the app, but it has suddenly stopped working. When I open the app it tells me that need to update it with a prompt to do so. When I click, it takes it takes me in circles and keeps telling me I need to download the latest version. I already have the latest version! Update: the problem has been fixed so I can now say I love playing with this app.
Very cool, but something else would make it 10 times better
by Andoruius on 2018/11/11 20:48
NEW IDEA! Here's something that would make animating the faces a lot easier. Maybe a "text-to-speech" option. So if you just type in what you would have the mouth say, it would add said speaking to the animation. It's really useful, I like it. Being able to do all this "bringing photos to life" stuff, really cool. But, something else would be an awesome feature. Being able to record your own mug animations with your camera. Like, you could record your face moving a certain way, then apply those custom recorded motions directly to another face. I mean, doing it by hand is okay, but being able to do it with your camera would be seamless and very fun.
SUPER TERRIBLE AND HORRIBLE!
by 🧞‍♀️paris❤️lover🧝🏻‍♀️ on 2019/01/19 13:49
it’s the worst! Most of the stuff doesn’t even work and everything it says above in the “description” is a LIE!!!! And I really don’t think you should download it. I don’t want some stupid developers response either saying “this must be a misunderstanding blah blah blah” because it is not! I am deleting this app and I want to say to everyone who is going to get it DO NOT GET THIS APP IT IS TERRIBLE!!! A much better app that you can get for face filters and stuff is MSQRD. I know that the developers are going to be all “MSQRD you can only take still photos and videos with the face filters blah blah blah” but WHO CARES ABOUT MOVING PICTURES BECAUSE VIDEOS ARE THE SAME THING!!! AND IF YOU REALLY WANT MOVING PICTURES GET THE APP CINEMA GRAPH!! ITS REALLY GOOD!
Not a SCAM APP
by LayZbones on 2019/11/05 20:49
This APP is legitimately fun. Get this app if you like having fun with your pictures and messing around with them, you and all your friends and family will get lots of laugh’s from it. I’m just a random dude who got this app and loved it & what better way to share the love than to tell others . Live your life , have fun , take pictures, then fool around with the pictures lol 😋 5 ⭐️’s
Definitely a hit
by notyaverage on 2017/11/01 02:22
I've had entirely too much fun on this app! The only thing keeping it from 5 star is the fact that despite paying money you still can not sync this with multiple devices. I'd really like to be able to have one account as I do not have or want a Facebook! Please make multi device sync a premium feature or at least give us a Google sign in option 🙏🏾 keep us the awesome work this app should be number one 😜
Read please :3
by Unicorn girly girl on 2018/05/19 19:29
Well, first of all, I’m pretty disappointed that I can’t create one of my own without paying........that was one of the only reasons I downloaded this app. (It said buy pass for extra creation tools when I pressed on create, was there any not extra tools that I can get to somehow? If so please tell me because I have not figured that out yet) other wise, the app is pretty great and funny! I’ll rate more stars if you explain this to me. Thanks! Alright!
I don't wanna pay
by kingboo2407 on 2018/01/24 22:14
It says it's a game where you make wools move in your own way. To do that you have to spend money other than that it's just memes if you can even call it that. The worst type of free apps are the ones who make you pay after you buy it and that's what this one does. I would subject an idea so they can make money buy making it so to get all the special effects more face movement options and music to get that you would have to buy it. So I hope this app will get better
Recent Update Bug
by DropDeadWolf on 2018/01/11 09:51
I recently downloaded this app and enjoy using it a lot. It is a lot of fun to mess around with and I love the idea of animating almost anything with a face, straight from your phone. But with this most recent update, everyone I attempt to start up the app, I am given a notice that I need to get the most recent update, which I have. This makes it to where I am unable to use the app at all. I’m not sure if anyone else is experiencing this issue, but I am. Once this bug is fixed, I will change my review no issue at all. Thanks. (I’m also using an IPhone SE)
Awful!
by gamersgudkdndnuj5 on 2019/07/18 01:54
First of all, I know you all want this to make ur own animations, right? Well, you really want it! It’s some crap about a monthly subscription, and it only comes with free dumb things like “who wants some” it’s so stupid! I recommend getting it, just to see that I’m right, and untill u make ur MAIN feature free, I will never download it. Don’t make a developer response saying stuff like “this is a mistake, everything’s free! So I give this 0 stars in all. I only gave it 1 star because it’s the least u can rate, but you know, I would give this 0 stars if I could! It didn’t even look real, like on the video it shows u! Bye.
Love the app but I do have a request
by Couldbeabettereditor on 2018/03/23 13:54
This app is amazing with how it is able to detect and animate faces. My one wish/request go the developer would add a way to export the face geometry as an fbx, 3ds, or obj file to import into 3d animation software. This would be a great tool for an aspiring animator. I wonder if any thoughts have been given to a body animator to go with this app. Just wishful thinking...thanks for the app!
Not as advertised.
by ➰➰😂➰➰ on 2018/07/09 19:21
Hi! I downloaded this app, I watched the video, and it looked so cool! The idea I got from your advertising video is that you can control someone else's face. I download the app, only to notice 4 awful things about this app. 1) it was difficult to navigate through. 2) it "couldn't read" 90% of my photos with a clear face 3) the graphics glitch, the face just moves very abruptly. 4) most importantly, what I could do for free was not what was advertised. I could make a picture say all of, what, three lame things? In the video, it showed you could move their eyes and mouth how you want. But no. You have to pay for that part. I noticed other people wrote this same thing in reviews, and the developer responses are like you guys don't know what you are doing. Like you don't really care. Like you're trying to make it seem like you had a good reason, when you just want money. Super unimpressed. Would never recommend.
Good affordable price, fun experience, funny and unique concept, would recommend
by Raptor claw 1627 on 2019/12/31 03:19
This is a really good app overall. It has several cool features and preloaded animations. Best experience if given premium. Only issue is the complexity of the app design. Would like to have it easier, but these type of apps require some skill and patience, but overtime it gets easier. Other wise a good affordable price and like they said “limitless designs”.
I would have given it two and a half stars if I could.
by Roxanne Jordan on 2019/10/14 14:05
Pretty much my only problem is that it costs quite an amount of money to do what I thought the game does. Doing fun animations with pictures, and making them come alive. but this just has all of it planned out for you. I sort of want a game where you can do, what it shows you can do in the adds, and a game where I can make my own animations with pictures without having it cost money.
The concept is okay, but
by leafhero on 2018/03/24 16:25
It’s a good concept, and it’s really cool, but when I put the animations on my face, it makes my face look all weird. It doesn’t look like my face, it looks all weird and distorted. I think i’m ganna delete the app for now, then maybe i’ll get it again to see if this feature is fixed. but overall, i think it could be a good app. ps, the format kinda looks like snapchat, maybe you could change the format a bit so it doesn’t look so much like snapchats?
Sooooo fun and entertaining
by unicornkora on 2018/06/23 14:20
Wow! I feel like this is one of my favorite games because you can pay to make your own project for very cheap! Edit: and I forgot to put this in, but this is 100% not a fake review!!!! Also, I love mug life so much that I still use it to this day and even made a reaction video of me just having a blast with it!! Love the people who made mug life ❤️

Mug Life - 3D Face Animator
Description
"New Apps We Love" - Apple "Simple Photos Turned Into Super-Realistic 3D Animations Rock the Web" - Sputnik News "I have to say that Mug Life is probably the most stupid and funny application in history." - KOCPC.com "Being able to create 3D animated characters out of static images is much more amusing than it has any right to be." - Mobile Syrup - App of the Week "What makes Mug Life special is that despite being obscenely juvenile, it’s really powerful." - The Next Web Instantly create stunning photo-real clones of friends, family, and celebrities. You don't have to be technical or artistic. All it takes is a photo. Download community animations and paste them to your photos, or just have fun playing with faces. (It's addicting.) Then, when inspiration strikes, create original animations and memes. Export and share your creations as high definition videos, stills, animated GIFs, and animated Facebook avatars. You can download all content for free, import your own images, Mug any image, and export and share an unlimited number of Mugs, entirely ad free. If you like Mug Life, you’ll love our Pro Tools. Pro Tools adds power tools (Creative Mode) for creating and editing Mugs. In addition, iPhone X users also get the (new!) Performance Mode, unleashing the expressive power of your TrueDepth camera for live performances. It’s like Animoji from any photo! Pro Tools Unlimited Access Subscription • You can optionally subscribe to Pro Tools for unlimited access to all the advanced features of Mug Life. • Subscriptions are billed monthly or annually, depending on the subscription plan. Alternately, a one-time purchase option is also available. • Subscriptions auto-renew, unless cancelled 24-hours in advance prior to the end of the current period. The subscription fee is charged to your iTunes account upon confirmation of purchase. You can manage your subscription or turn off auto-renewal by going to your Apple account settings after purchase. • Terms and Conditions: https://www.muglife.com/terms • Privacy Policy: https://www.muglife.com/privacy Empower your creativity and sense of humor with Mug Life. We can't wait to see what you come up with! With Mug Life you can... • Take a photo using your camera. High quality photos of faces with neutral expressions work the best. • Import any photo from your Camera Roll, or use photos from with Facebook for albums, Instagram pictures, Twitter images, etc. If it’s got a face, you can animate it! • Search for fun images to animate, including paintings, pictures, sketches, tattoos, dolls, action figures, drawings, photographs, renders, or illustrations. But that’s just the beginning! Any photo with a recognizable face can be great! For example, statue & sculpture photographs are particularly fun, as are photo frames taken from video & film, animals, costumes, make-up like body paint & more. You can make animated GIFs and videos from anything as long as it has a face. • Manipulate faces in your photo. This is where the MAGIC really starts! • Apply ANY community-made Mug animations you like for free. Like a meme you find? Use it, but put it on YOUR photos. • Not just one face at a time! Got a close-up of a group of friends? Yup, it works! But it’s hard to fit a whole baseball team in one photo, so focus on great faces! • Instantly share your Mugs on Facebook, Instagram, and other social media. It’s fantastic for making memes on the fly. GIFs, video, and JPG formats are supported. • Troll your friends with crazy Mugs putting their face in the spotlight! • Send texts messages with GIFs or post videos with the fun! • Animate your own Mugs from scratch with Creative Mode! All you need is a photo with a face! • Create live performances with 16 great voice filters and do live motion capture in Performance Mode. It’s like Animoji from any photo! Make group photos sing in chorus! Performance Mode requires an iPhone X, but Mug Life still works great on any iPhone or iPad.

Garbage
by cadman56 on 2020/02/09 03:32
Would be a good program if they didn’t make you pay to littery do anything. Yes you can bring a picture in and apply some pre-made affects. However you cannot even do a couple custom affects to test it out. They give you a free 7 day trial but you need to give them your credit card info to do it. They should at least give you the trial without requiring your card or payment info.
STUPID
by xafhgcx on 2020/02/03 21:12
IF YOUR GONNA MAKE ME PAY FOR EVERYTHING MAKE US PAY FOR THE APP LIKE WHY WOULD YOU MAKE THE APP FREE IF YOU CAN’T EVEN PLAY IT JUST TERRIBLE
It’s definitely fun
by madcopygirl on 2020/02/03 00:59
Of course I’d like to be able to better manipulate my creations but I guess the app needs to make money somehow. It’s only fair!

I have been making a LOT of funny GIFs on this app and sharing it with my parents! Nothing actually wrong with this app!!! 👍👍👍 The thing I got creeped out by, and please don’t make fun of me, but I saw a scary momo GIF on there and I got kinda of disturbed 😦
Crazy fun

Works just perfect
Must have photo realistic art
by ALTsomething on 2020/01/02 07:46
I had seen other artists use this app on Instagram for their artwork. However it must be super photo realistic artwork In order for this app to work. Mine is too cartoon like I guess. I tried to return it and get a refund. Apple said that wasn’t good enough, so now I’m stuck with this app for a year and I can’t even use it.
Just don't download
by Andrea Belmarez on 2020/01/01 14:50
Yea i know it says FREE but not.. I wanted to customize my mouth and stuff but it's not free. I had to pay money.. AND I KNOW RICH GURL I HAVE NO CARD YET!!!!! MAKE THE WHOLETHING FREE AND ILL MAME IT 5 STAR AGAIN!!!!!!! Ugh I wish I could report this right now
Horrible game
by uvohcytc on 2020/01/01 01:10
You have to pay to create your own meme and there’s nothing fun to do. So please fix this so people don’t have to pay for something fun to do and this is a real problem.
Good affordable price, fun experience, funny and unique concept, would recommend

Lacks features but still an achievement
by Villen310mrt on 2019/12/28 23:40
This app is good for simple animations on simple faces (which is still a towering achievement of 3D mapping and animation) but it sorely lacks necessary features to push it to the true pro level. The app seems narrowly targeted at people who want to make silly memes but it's capable of much more if only the developers tried to make it into more of a tool. 1. No way to set video or gif frame sizes. They arbitrarily downscale the input. If my device has the power for it, it should be possible to increase the resolution or override it under power-user settings. 2. No way to freeze parts of the images e.g. overlapping hair, objects etc. get animated along with the face and there's no way to stop this. Need an implementation of a freeze mask like in the Photoshop liquify tool. 3. Need ways to animate non-face objects. Some more geometry wireframes than just the face would help greatly. 4. Need more control on the alignment points. There too rough, likely by design to cater to simple usage.
Refund please
by pennySmith8484fire on 2019/12/27 22:07
May I please get a refund for this app? It’s not very easy to use and won’t do what I was looking for

It’s my childhood fear

Yea u might think I’m crazy but my fear is momo so get rid of that on then I will download it again so sorry but really I hate that monster.
$29.99 one-time fee
by DrKate aka The Rock Doctor on 2019/12/10 17:07
When I read app reviews stupidly forgot to filter them by “most recent.” All the “top reviews” indicated the one-time fee was $3.99 which seemed reasonable to me. I downloaded the app and was met with a subscription fee of $11.99/month or $29.99/one-time. That’s absurd. Deleted.
Yet another trash app that’s costs monthly for no reason
by Jaymacklez on 2019/12/09 02:26
Don’t get this app. It’s just gunna force you to start paying monthly for a cheap gimmick that’s costs them nothing. Mug life.. u are the reason the world will burn. Ur trash. Just waiting for the developer to copy paste some dumb bs now

Complete total scam. I will not buy a stupid little feature just to make it look better.
Not free
by hhfhjajj on 2019/11/26 16:10
Tricks you by saying free. Then you can’t even get into it without paying big fees. Thumbs down. I give it a 5 out of 7 would not recommend.
Cool

This is very funny 👏👏👏👏
Can we stop with subscriptions?
by Sgsuperman105 on 2019/11/22 00:49
I’ve already paid a grand for the phone, I shouldn’t have to pay monthly for an app that can make a cat smile. Beyond pointless to spend money on this.

Was hoping to be able to record audio and have the face react
by AlanLaBudde on 2019/10/16 23:48
I have purchased the ProTools and was hoping somewhere I could record audio and have the mouth moving vaguely insinc… Chatter pix can do this -albeit in a crummy way ha-I think it’s the perfect thing for your program to be able to do… So far I am very pleased and have many ideas for animating my own drawings etc. etc. and sculptures I’ll look around perhaps I just haven’t found the functions all the functions yet! Can’t seem to find the developers response

Mug life
by unicornliada on 2019/10/15 20:15
I think this is a funny game, but in the App Store it never said creating your own mug has a price. That is the whole reason I wanted this game. It looked really fun and I was going to mug all my friends. Then I realized I could only do mugs that already exist. So my whole point of this review is to say, you shouldn’t have to pay to create mugs!🙂😕
I would have given it two and a half stars if I could.

This app is fun, but I will not spend a dime on it. I watched the video and immediately wanted to try all of the features. After it was done downloading. I opened the app and realized you have to pay for everything in the video. I understand you need to make money, but can you please give us at least some of the features in the video?

Great as far as functionality but other problems
by Walk After Christ on 2019/09/22 07:38
I tried it out and the app is amazing at animating faces for gifs, but one major problem is there is no filter for what people put on. I deleted it because pornography was showing up under trending and I don’t wan my kids scrolling down and seeing that stuff.
Most Fun App Ever
by 1lisa2play on 2019/09/21 09:43
I’m still learning this app bc there’s so much it can do! I love it! The only thing I don’t like is the app pushing to share on social media. I don’t share anything bc I have a crazy ex husband who stalks me, so I truly despise being pushed to sign into the app with Facebook! Also every social media site, the app tries to get me to post on every single site there is! Some people need privacy, simply for their own safety and the safety of their children, elderly parents and more!
Live it but ....
by Cbabs19 on 2019/09/06 02:58
I love this app it’s super fun, but I paid for the app so I’d rather it didn’t have the logo in the corner
A Month Later
by Emperor Palpatine Rules on 2019/09/02 02:36
Decided to write another review for this app after messing around with it longer. This app’s a cool concept. Lots of potential. I just wish you could manually adjust your pics in the free version. The app isn’t always accurate with its auto adjust, so it just feels unfair that I have to pay to see if it works well for my pics, at least with manual adjust, that is. I do understand the reasons for the other in-app purchases. I’d also suggest that you guys update your video to better stress what’s free and what’s not. I know, it’s specified in the description, but a good majority of people who are attracted to this app (especially kids) don’t read the description. Hope my suggestions help and keep up the good work.👍 Edit: Thank you for replying so fast. After checking similar apps and their trailers, I realize it’s unfair of me to ask you guys to update your trailer when so many apps don’t specify there are in-app purchases in their apps’ trailers. People just need to read the description. Personally, I didn’t have a problem with the trailer because I read your app’s description, but many reviews complained the trailer was misleading, so I just figured I’d suggest a solution to appease your audience. Although, after watching your trailer (app store version) again, I did notice out of all 30 seconds, only 10 seconds of it actually advertises free content, and most of those 10 seconds are just a couple title transitions and a couple seconds of sitting faces/expression transfer before moving on to more paid content. The focus is clearly and majorly on the paid content, which just happens to be the part everyone comes to this app for. Not the best way to advertise all the wonderful things the free version of your app offers, if you ask me. Maybe switching the app from free to paid would be a more honest alternative? I’d also suggest checking your competitor, Talkr, as their trailer advertises both the free stuff and paid in a more equal manor. Getting on to the other part of my review, I did not see any response to the issue of having to pay to manually adjust your pics. I understand you guys need the money to keep this app going and paying the bills and the best way to do that is to have features people want to buy. But, as I stated by above, the app isn’t always accurate on its auto adjust. If you have an alternative solution to the manual adjust, I’m all ears. Thank you again for respond so quick to my review.
Malfunction?
by diabanarijanna on 2019/08/25 15:28
Can’t create or use the perform feature anymore. Everytime I’ve selected my photo and then go to tap “create” or “perform” it starts buffering and it never loads. I’ve deleted and re-downloaded the app but it does the same thing. Then I tried it on my friend’s phone thinking it was just a problem with mine and I could only see the “create” option and no “perform” option or any subscription option to buy it. Then even when I did click “create” it stays on the buffering screen forever. I really would like for this to be fixed because I love the performance feature and I cant create the videos I want anymore. :( (Also, I do have an Iphone X in case the feature is only for that type of phone, but it just doesnt work anymore)
Worst app ever.
by AtheerAbbas on 2019/08/25 10:05
I suspect it would be bad because the awful foul design, but decided to give it a try anyway. It immediately asked me to pay money in order to use the app, which is ridiculous.
Rip off
by Ordway2000 on 2019/08/19 01:37
When you can’t open the app without purchasing then it is not an in app purchase. If you believe in this product go ahead and put the price out there. Shameful deception. I do not trust you!!!! So i got the same boiler plate response that everyone else received which basically said that we all misunderstood how to use the app. I know when i went back to see if the developer was right i was once again slapped in the face with the “Free”Trial” offer. If you have ever clicked on one of those land mines just know that you will automatically be charged the inflated subscription which will require a simple 5 step process to cancel. To the developers and to Apple, if it takes one click to spend money it should only take one click to return it when we realize we have been ripped off. I keep getting harassed by this developer to correct my inaccurate statements. I’m not sure what to say. An app that i have to click through a minefield of “free trials” to use the app is not a free app. This app amounts to click-bate my purpose with this review is to let people know that if they don’t want to spend money for a subscription and they don’t want to have to click past screens to decline that subscription they shouldn’t download this app. “The customer is not always right but the customer is always the customer.” Zig Ziegler
Bring it to life

It’s okay. Just please allow us to be creative.
by Masterdiamond6 on 2019/08/11 19:25
So I downloaded the app and I thought I could edit someone’s face. I can, but I can’t move it around like it does in the video because it costs money. To anyone reading this review, if you want to move faces around like in the video, but for free, I wouldn’t recommend this app. You have to look up a certain thing with a certain animation and caption to put that on the face you’re using. And to all those people who pay for that membership thing, it’s not worth it. Also add a filter thing for searches so any kids who might be using or watching someone use this app, that they wouldn’t see the horror themes and inappropriate themes. Please developer, make the face editing thing free.
Nah
by Brian3318 on 2019/08/09 02:43
Overpriced for some garbage! Talk about a rip off for some stupid digital junk. I already spent thousands on a phone and now YOU want money for a fave app!? Get outta here with your idiocy!
What?

I’ve really enjoy adding expressions to my communications by using this app . I just wish there were more options . It’s the same options over and over again .. please more new ones . I really love your opportunity to increase my communication skills with cute animations ! Thank you !
Please read
by SupriseReveiws on 2019/07/24 18:57
I think it works great and is really nice except for the fact you need to pay just to create your own face animation. I mean - maybe if you had one free animation you could do and then pay then this app would be great. But I deleted it after 3 minutes so yeah. Good idea and work but it just wasn’t me. Though I bet others LOVE this app. Maybe if there where also more free emotions and expressions you could do that would be great. BYE! 🙃

Free to download, not to try

by gamersgudkdndnuj5 on 2019/07/18 01:54
First of all, I know you all want this to make ur own animations, right? Well, you really want it! It’s some crap about a monthly subscription, and it only comes with free dumb things like “who wants some” it’s so stupid! I recommend getting it, just to see that I’m right, and untill u make ur MAIN feature free, I will never download it. Don’t make a developer response saying stuff like “this is a mistake, everything’s free! So I give this 0 stars in all. I only gave it 1 star because it’s the least u can rate, but you know, I would give this 0 stars if I could! It didn’t even look real, like on the video it shows u! Bye.
I feel dumb for buying this for $25.

Watch for annual renewal charge
by wesweb on 2019/07/11 18:43
Unlike most apps “Mug Life” charges an annual fee! The app was fun and all, but the novelty wore off for me after the first month. A year later I’m asked to renew the subscription. Beware!
Love it
by Justmejim on 2019/07/10 22:58
Fun , cool , takes time and practice but it’s very functional. On a tablet it may be much easier, I use on IPhone. Custom features take a technique. Anyone can do it. Just takes a little time for custom speech. Touch and go super easy and start right now.
Absolutely Trash

Why cost money
by roomy nelly on 2019/06/20 02:04
First off I thought this game was going to be good. I looked at the reviews and mostly they were all bad comments. First I was like “it’s just peoples opinion.” But then I started to see it like they did. So first off why buy tools to animate it. That is not fair. Yes it was cheap but still. Isn’t that pointless? I suggest a improvement on the game where it is free. I don’t recommend this app. And the person who had the idea of this app, sorry most people don’t like it. Report back. Improvement please!
Free
by Zaizoh on 2019/06/19 17:52
Make everything on the app free and it will be one of the best ever
Downloaded to give company a good review originally...
by Kwabman01 on 2019/06/15 03:35
I was tired of seeing people complain about the 4 dollars. I hate that people expect stuff for free. So I downloaded it to pay the 4 dollars and tell them to shut up. But apparently now it is much more expensive... 2 dollars per week and 30 dollars per year or something. So I guess I’m on their side now... And the snarky responses from the developers are super classy.
Cool idea - terrible pricing
by Sweetcash on 2019/06/12 03:02
Cool idea but never got a chance to try. You Immediately have to sign up with a paid plan - paid plans make no sense. It an app - price it at a price point where it’s a no brainer. $30 a yr?? most likely people will use it a few times and get bored and never use again.
Disappointing
by kinda_mad101 on 2019/06/11 02:03
When I saw the ad I thought it looked interesting, but when I downloaded it, it said I had to pay to use almost everything. It was also a little confusing to me. The only thing I could figure out was how to make a picture of someone into a gif thing and even after that the graphics were bad. I did not like this app, maybe it’s just that I don’t understand, idk.
Adjustable key frames
by Somps on 2019/06/08 07:26
2019-06-08 (June) Hey, Mug Life is pretty darn good. Something that I have thought about from the beginning. It needs a key frame editor. You know, when you tap on the square box & you get several boxes including “Pose Face”, could you add a key frame editor? I made the lips form the shapes to look like the words “Why me?” Looks pretty good except it’s spread across 20 seconds and if we had a key frame editor, we could grab the key frames and slide them all to the left so that I don’t have to spend a lot of time remakibg the lips. It takes forever. If I could simply slide the key frames to the left, it would speed up the lip movement and finish it in the first 10 seconds allowing me to do more in the later half. I love it though! Thank you

Absolute impressive App. I barely wver write reviews, but this App deserves it. And pricing is perfectly fine. Just the weekly pricing is an obvious rip off. But 10 bucks for a year is perfectly fine. Even cheap considering development costs. I can for sure see a nice exit for those guys selling their technology to Snap or whomever.

Excellent Face Animator!
by Slackmeister on 2017/11/15 01:17
This is an awesome app. I was able to quickly create little sequence. Having a great creating all kinds of snippets of animation that I later splice together in a video editor. It would be cool to have a quick library of phonetics mouth postures and store them for quick access while creating your custom animations. Example, “B” mouth position, “Oh” mouth postion and a “rrrrr” mouth position. You can the spell out B-rrrrr-Oh to animate the word “bro” and then also save the word as a user library for later recall. That can be version 2! 🤔 BTW, thank you for making the app very affordable yet powerful. I hope that you guys don’t turn this into a monthly subscription model like other greedy app developers out there. Instead, I recommend having add-ons for future additional features.
Not what you make it seem.
by Unsatified Lil Girl on 2018/06/01 22:49
This app interested me as soon as I saw it. And so, I downloaded it! I was very exited, and I got all set up and so. However, you never specified that it cost money for the custom. I know, It’s not a lot. But I’m only 12, I have an overprotective mother, and I don’t have my own card. The fact that it is not free needs to be specified! Also, I think a little more should be free. Come on, At leas let us control little bits of the eyes and mouth, like seriously, anyway, in general it is a good app and works great. It just has false advertisement and it too expensive for most kids, so I wouldn’t recommend this if you want to make your friend look like a fool for free, cause it’s not gonna happen. Ok, I made this after your response, anyway, you didn’t get what I said. I said, this is false advertisement, I did not complain about it being useless! You can’t be creative in this app. You use what other people create. In the photos that show the person customizing the actions of the person. I immediately thought it was free, because there was no mention of it costing money. Yes, it does say in app purchases, but that doesn’t specify WHAT costs money. And I can not buy the extras only because I’m not allowed too. So it dose t make this very enjoyable, if we could just move the eyes or mouth, and the others have to cost money, it would be WAAAAAAAY better. So please TRY to understand my question and point of view. Thank you!
Suggestions to make it Better
by Critique Fantastique on 2017/12/25 14:20
This app is a great idea and all, but it is a similar to SnapChat. Although the MugLife software is different from the SnapChat software and it does a different thing, the app layout is alarmingly the same. Each meme is like clicking a story and it looks very much like the average SnapChat page. I think that this app should get a new, better looking design that’s fun and appealing. It’s an awesome idea, I just think maybe it could be more fun and colorful, and maybe even cooler looking than SnapChat itself. Also, maybe advertise that meme-adding portion as well, if someone can’t afford the creative tools (i.e. little kids). The price it’s fine, but people should know beforehand that they have to pay to get most of the app, or at least be aware of another option on the app (most people do not look at the “in app purchases” bit before downloading).
Not actually free (misleading preview)
by Sarahstarr88 on 2018/01/04 22:39
So I got this app hoping to just have fun with my pictures but I ran into two problems. 1.) it because I have a beard it couldn’t figure out where my mouth was meaning that all the mouth animations ended up on my mustache (which looked pretty creepy). 2.) Everything they show in the preview requires a $3.99 in app purchase. It’s not that I can’t afford the $4 it’s the misleading nature of it all. If the app is $3.99 make it $3.99 don’t make people wait until they download it to show the real price. Perhaps a free lite version and a $3.99 full version would be a better solution. It would at least be more strait forward. Finally, and this is just a small thing, it isn’t yet optimized for the iPhone X screen. There were parts of the UI that were covered up by the notch at the top of my phone. This is a potentially fun app but the misleading advertisement and the fact that it can’t figure out my beard turned me off to it.
Great, but there’s a problem
by SadSoup on 2018/06/14 20:37
I recently downloaded this app out of curiosity and I love it! I’m honestly considering spending the $3.99 to unlock the other features, but I couldn’t help but notice an issue (?) when saving my animated pictures as gifs. The quality significantly went down. My once nearly HD quality picture was now a lower quality gif. Everything just seems more pixelated, especially the lips. I’m not sure if it’s my device, the app itself, or something that just can’t be helped and happens naturally. Other than that, this is probably the most entertaining and useful app I have on my phone!
Bad experience
by Zugalz on 2019/01/11 21:20
My review had difficult questions for the devs to answer, and somehow they got it deleted. So I’ll just leave it at this. The premium experience is over priced and they would love for you to forget about it, there is no real world reason to charge for this app on a yearly basis, they are adding new content regularly but that is the free part, the part you pay for yearly is the power tools that are already developed. The other big problem is the lack of clear instructions for canceling your expensive membership. You can contact them directly and they will point you in the right direction, but people will not typically do that, and I have some knowledge about people’s habits in this regard with my experience in this industry. The instructions for this type of thing should be layed out in the F.A.Q. Section of their app, they could even just add a link to apples page which is already made, that lays out the steps. It feels like bad will toward their customer base to not do so.
Lies
by Jacie Vore on 2017/11/07 22:14
This app says it will make you look amazing but here's some news for you buddy it doesn't all it does is over lap these face features on top of your face it will make you face change color and if your going to make an app that is like snap chat don't copy it almost completely and the developer responds better not get all smart with me I've read a lot of the reviews and half of them are fake and the bad reviews have a good point yes it does cost money and yes it is at a cheap price but some people don't have the card to do it with and some of us don't have the time to mess around with it my mom has a baby so she doesn't have the time to do she has to take care of the baby so nice try in an app but it needs some improvements a lot if improvements so at least tell the truth about rather then say something that's not true because more then likely people are going to download it like it then notice that your lying delete the app and give a bad review and yes it is your fault

Ok app. Could be better.
by warlord1263 on 2018/05/07 00:22
I got this app thinking it could be pretty fun to mess around with but it was fun for about five minutes and then I realized that the reason I got the app was so I could make pictures come to life with my own controls. I looked for a while to find the option to create my own and when I found it I was disappointed to see that it costs four dollars to access that feature. This kind of ruined the app for me because the whole reason I got the app that was supposed to be free was to create my own face motions and that feature isn’t even available unless you are willing to shell out money. I also don’t like how the fact that you have to buy that feature wasn’t advertised at all before I got the app. You should just make the app $4 if you are going to advertise the feature that you have to pay for in the app before you get it.
Suggestions!
by ryancarty on 2017/12/31 15:34
This app is awesome! Makes you look kind of like a good video game character and his freaky. I have a couple suggestions: -I would redesign the app with a more modern, flat, minimalistic, colored design. Right now it feels a little cheesy like it was made several years ago. I don’t mean this as an insult, its not a bad design, it’s just not the current design style and would make the app look more legit because it appears to be doing really well -I would focus less on Memes inherently. Keep making lots of awesome face animations and give us the option to add our own meme text, but when I’m forced to use meme text with a certain expression it feels locked in. The animation tool is really cool and sophisticated seeming, and it should be a face animation app with the option to make memes, Not a meme app with animations, if that makes sense. -Enhance the account creation and abilities **-Check out the app FYUSE. They have an awesome, unique camera related ability too so they are in a similar category. They have a very modern design, and a social network built in, in addition to the regular sharing options. They are a good example of all my notes. Awesome app, thanks! Gonna show/freak out some friends.
An Okay App But Not Worth It
by ScarlettFrey1995 on 2019/01/07 16:13
You have to pay to access anything worth using on this app. While the app itself is free and plenty of pre-made effects are available for free the process they showed in the ad is not free and requires purchase. The app works fine and has plenty of effects for free but after a few minutes of playing around with pre-made options it gets boring and stale. If you feel like forking out money to access the DIY feature go right ahead but I will not be. I deleted the app. It’s just not worth it. Without the DIY feature it’s boring and repetitive. In my opinion they should make the app itself cost money or explain that the features they are advertising cost money so that people will not download their app under false pretenses thinking what they want is free when it’s not.
EXCELLENT
by Bobbiwho on 2018/04/02 00:59
I never write reviews unless there is something in it for me. i.e. hints, walk through etc. I am writing this review because I totally love it!!! After using the free part for a while I shelled out the few bucks to see what else it would do. What can I say more than I love it. It has had me LOL literally. One last comment. I did have an issue. I Emailed the developer and within hours they contacted me back. I'm happy with the response and outcome Update: four months later I’m still loving this app. It’s been updated and improved several times. Devs are top notch professionals.
Wow. Never again
by bruthasmith on 2019/05/01 20:54
Download the app used it didn’t have any problem with that stuff forgot about it. Download it again just now to use it and saw the 12-year-old kid review and the way you talked down to them and treated them like crap and try to reword the response to make it look like they wanted free stuff we’re not all they were doing is giving you constructive criticism from one of your customers point of view.... Has made me certain that I’m going to delete the app after posting this review and never use anything I find is made by you ever again you should be ashamed of yourself that’s not how business carries themselves —- edit —- That’s a disingenuous response it’s the number one most cited review on your page right now you know exactly what girl I’m talking about and then you immediately shift to the old the positive reviews is dismissive. Also attempting to make the conversation go private by offering support via email is only an effort to silence someone who speak publicly and negatively so if you have anything to say you can stay here everyone can see your response thank you very much. The very way you worded it correct other peoples misunderstandings clearly shows you have no intent on taking responsibility .... good day.
Excellent App, and Creative Mode is Well Worth It!
by TyCooper2010 on 2017/12/28 05:27
I’ve been using this app to make animated GIFs of my family for the past 3 or 4 days, and it’s been awesome! I very rarely spend money on apps, and yet I almost immediately splurged on the one-time $3.99 upgrade cost, because I really wanted the extra features. They’re incredibly robust and responsive for just being an iPhone app! As far as the features that already exist, I have almost nothing but positive things to say. However, there is a feature that I would absolutely LOVE to see added, if technically possible: Live facial-tracking using the iPhone’s camera. While the point-based animating system is excellent, it’s still sometimes difficult to get a completely realistic looking animation, even after watching the tutorials. Being able to use the camera on the iPhone to replicate my own expressions (very similarly to the “Animojis” on the iPhone X) would make this application a monstrously powerful tool, and is the only thing between me and a 5-Star review! Good work, devs!
Good fun
by Rnichola on 2018/08/04 04:03
I had fun sending animated versions of my friends back to them. It’s a unique app with good application of the technology, and usable on both basic and advanced levels. Also, the technology behind this app is impressive considering it’s price point, in my opinion. If I had any suggestions, I would say that a lot of the community animations are redundant and just poor copies of the built in ones.. consider moderating those and instead adding more high quality animations in the “mug me” section. Oh I just saw that you added two more, keep it up!
Lacks features but still an achievement
by Villen310mrt on 2019/12/28 23:40
This app is good for simple animations on simple faces (which is still a towering achievement of 3D mapping and animation) but it sorely lacks necessary features to push it to the true pro level. The app seems narrowly targeted at people who want to make silly memes but it's capable of much more if only the developers tried to make it into more of a tool. 1. No way to set video or gif frame sizes. They arbitrarily downscale the input. If my device has the power for it, it should be possible to increase the resolution or override it under power-user settings. 2. No way to freeze parts of the images e.g. overlapping hair, objects etc. get animated along with the face and there's no way to stop this. Need an implementation of a freeze mask like in the Photoshop liquify tool. 3. Need ways to animate non-face objects. Some more geometry wireframes than just the face would help greatly. 4. Need more control on the alignment points. There too rough, likely by design to cater to simple usage.
I love this app!

So when I'm scrolling through instagram alot of times the ads are misleading or just straight up false advertising, however, i still download alot of them because they seem cool. With this app i wasn't expecting much but when i launched it the layout and everything was so awesome and immediately my expectations where passed. Although there are some things you cant do on the free version of the app i was shocked with the amount you could do! Over all, its a great app and definitely worth an install!
Malfunction?
by diabanarijanna on 2019/08/25 15:28
Can’t create or use the perform feature anymore. Everytime I’ve selected my photo and then go to tap “create” or “perform” it starts buffering and it never loads. I’ve deleted and re-downloaded the app but it does the same thing. Then I tried it on my friend’s phone thinking it was just a problem with mine and I could only see the “create” option and no “perform” option or any subscription option to buy it. Then even when I did click “create” it stays on the buffering screen forever. I really would like for this to be fixed because I love the performance feature and I cant create the videos I want anymore. :( (Also, I do have an Iphone X in case the feature is only for that type of phone, but it just doesnt work anymore)
Excellent App for Cheap $$$
by Metaldrummer213 on 2017/11/23 14:26
I’m very disappointed in the human race after reading about how people think $4 is expensive for an app of this magnitude. All the face editing apps on the AppStore and these developers pull off something new and everyone complains about $4. I guarantee each person that gave a one star review threw away $4 worth of McDonald’s just last week. Pathetic cheap community. Shame...........Shame. Not to mentioned these same people get to vote and drive cars. Terrifying concept. App is fun, exciting and cheap for what it does. Spend the $4 to get features you’ve literally never seen before in any app. Only complaint is the watermark on the bottom but at the same time who cares. Dear developers, Thank you for something new and fun and keep up the good work. BTW it’s worth $5. Update- they literally took my suggestion and made it happen 3 days later. Best developers ever!
Powerful Tool, Amazing Tech
by ERAUdarouze on 2017/11/17 03:52
This app is incredibly good at automatically recognizing faces and the animation technique rarely distorts the photo excessively. Very impressive. I’d say the biggest drawback right now is the limited animations to copy. Custom animations are too tedious. A killer feature would be to allow animations to be extracted from a front facing camera selfie video. Allow the user to quickly record anything they want, with sound! Maybe add voice emulation eventually. This app could be an outstanding application of the forthcoming avatarkit API from apple that is behind Animojis. Excited to see what your future updates entail!
Well worth the $3.99
by T1M75 on 2018/03/12 03:28
In a world where we spend billions on our entertainment yearly and thousands individually, the $3.99 tag for this app is an easy yes. I spend next to nothing on entertainment and had no desire to even read a review when it came to deciding, I knew I was going to buy it. It’s simply too much fun not to have. Think about any, AND I MEAN ANY, picture you like or dislike ( clean or dirty HAHA ) and want to change. THIS APP DOES GIFS, AND VIDEO SAVES OF EVERYTHING...think about it, then go buy it! Coupled with Face Swap, there is no limit to what you can make of yourselves or anyone else! You’re welcome Mug Life, it’s money well spent!
Excellence
by Big Daddy Peej on 2018/02/15 03:08
Dude I haven’t even used this app yet and I went through and read the best and worst comments, so now going in I know exactly what I’m getting and there’s also a clear description of what’s to expect in my head because of the comments . Who ever handles your Reviews and PR is obviously a genius . Excellent feedback ratio and not to mention it’s quite apparent that it’s not a com-gen response through reading each one . Thank you so much to the Dev team at ML and I haven’t even used the app yet .
It’s okay. Just please allow us to be creative.
by Masterdiamond6 on 2019/08/11 19:25
So I downloaded the app and I thought I could edit someone’s face. I can, but I can’t move it around like it does in the video because it costs money. To anyone reading this review, if you want to move faces around like in the video, but for free, I wouldn’t recommend this app. You have to look up a certain thing with a certain animation and caption to put that on the face you’re using. And to all those people who pay for that membership thing, it’s not worth it. Also add a filter thing for searches so any kids who might be using or watching someone use this app, that they wouldn’t see the horror themes and inappropriate themes. Please developer, make the face editing thing free.
Great App, BUT Could be even Greater!
by SuperImposer on 2018/08/30 03:51
This is a really good app for what it does. Having used it for a while on several projects, Here’s how I would make it GREAT: 1. The movements/pulls should be able to go a little further, a bit more extreme when required. 2. I would be AMAZED if a text entry prompt was added which translated the phonetic sounds to automatic mouth movements on the subject. Animating words manually is extremely difficult, but a library of mouth poses were added to accompany the phonetics if a user’s entered text...Forget 5 Stars...you’d deserve 10!
Most Fun App Ever
by 1lisa2play on 2019/09/21 09:43
I’m still learning this app bc there’s so much it can do! I love it! The only thing I don’t like is the app pushing to share on social media. I don’t share anything bc I have a crazy ex husband who stalks me, so I truly despise being pushed to sign into the app with Facebook! Also every social media site, the app tries to get me to post on every single site there is! Some people need privacy, simply for their own safety and the safety of their children, elderly parents and more!
Great but...
by MarvBox on 2017/12/26 23:54
Ugh! I'm so angry at this game! I would have given 2 and a half stars but it won't let you. I can't believe that it won't let you move the face and stuff unless you PAY!!! Also, you can't make your own words for memes if you PAY, again!!! Can you please make a way where you can pay for something else like, ummmmm, how about like where you can draw and memealize (not a real word XD) your drawings? Once you have made my plan of solution (witch I think would make, like, EVERYBODY way happy :D) can you do one of those things where you can like text people back? I would totally like that! Thank you!
Your Logo on Images
by Remove Your Logo Please on 2019/05/05 08:21
Love the app a lot. Do you have a version without your logo (web page) at the bottom of the image? I have the subscription version and thought since we were paying you would remove your logo from the images we create. That’s the privileged app creators give to those who pay. If you do not, please create one without your logo for paid subscription and those who buy the app as well; we deserve it. Thanks in advance for considering my request. Thanks for the app as well.
Not what you think
by Kittencat🐱 on 2017/11/12 04:54
Some people stumbled across this app hoping to have a fun, free experience where They can directly edit their photos. But they download it and find the only free edit is adding memes. So if you want to pay $5 (and it's worth it too) you get what you think you are getting. But most people don't want to "waste money" on a photo editor if you can just use FREE apps. Many kids can't spend money on things like this. But those who do pay will have an excellent experience with photoshop. So it depends on the type of person you are if you rate this 1 or 5 stars. But it's up to you.
Was hoping to be able to record audio and have the face react
by AlanLaBudde on 2019/10/16 23:48
I have purchased the ProTools and was hoping somewhere I could record audio and have the mouth moving vaguely insinc… Chatter pix can do this -albeit in a crummy way ha-I think it’s the perfect thing for your program to be able to do… So far I am very pleased and have many ideas for animating my own drawings etc. etc. and sculptures I’ll look around perhaps I just haven’t found the functions all the functions yet! Can’t seem to find the developers response
Very cool
by Ken Eynon on 2019/04/25 15:28
I saw this advertised on Facebook. I downloaded it just to play around with it. It’s actually a very good idea for an app. For those expecting free, this app probably cost $30,000 or more to develop and thousands to market. Most mobile apps that are useful cost thousands to make and with all the restrictions with marketing, it’s very difficult to accommodate everyone. The developer who made this did a great job! If only I had thought of it first!
Forget about pathetic Snapchat!
by Spirit Amokk on 2017/11/20 18:56
Mug Life is the best $4 I have ever spent on a mobile app! The things you can do with your static portraits are simply amazing. You can literally make any face SO ALIVE and freaky at times. If you feel that auto face scanner is not precise enough, then try to tinker with custom tracking. I have so much fun with it and my friends absolutely love it 😊 Do yourself a favor and spend $4 on this quality software because there is nothing even remotely like that on AppStore.
Thanks Mug Life! 😁👍🏻
by Tatt2freak19 on 2019/03/16 03:37
Long story short, my phone was stolen and people used my account to post vulgar things resulting in my accounts ban. After getting my phone back and some damage control, Mug Life reps were very polite and helpful in getting this portion of the problem fixed quickly and quietly. Thank You Mug Life! I enjoy this app very much and it has provided me several hours of entertainment when I needed it most! You guys rock 👊🏻.
Miracles do exist.
by Lick-itStick-it on 2018/11/05 00:55
As a lonely person this app has been a gift of great stature. I have made hundreds of avatars with the photos of my lost love. I don’t know how I would coup with my mourning were it not for this program. It has been 5 years since she was taken. Each day I live in misery until I found this app. Now with the assistance of a 10 inch tablet and her old dresses it as if the accident never happened. Thanks so much....
Boring and misleading
by WakManiak on 2018/09/10 21:31
You should have specified that the facial adapter and custom movements counted as power tools, because they are the only reason i downloaded your app. Its just stupid memes that no one even likes. Hence the title; boring and misleading. Edit: Shut up. The only thing that people wanted was the thing you advertised the most; the facial features option but you didn’t provide that so it doesn’t matter. Maybe instead of making things that people want cost money to “survive” then actually make your app better by allowing them to use it for free. This is honestly false advertising and you know it but only want money so you don’t care. Smh 🙄😒
I love it but...
by jodzilla98 on 2018/01/10 23:19
I’ve been having a ball with the app, but it has suddenly stopped working. When I open the app it tells me that need to update it with a prompt to do so. When I click, it takes it takes me in circles and keeps telling me I need to download the latest version. I already have the latest version! Update: the problem has been fixed so I can now say I love playing with this app.
Very cool, but something else would make it 10 times better
by Andoruius on 2018/11/11 20:48
NEW IDEA! Here's something that would make animating the faces a lot easier. Maybe a "text-to-speech" option. So if you just type in what you would have the mouth say, it would add said speaking to the animation. It's really useful, I like it. Being able to do all this "bringing photos to life" stuff, really cool. But, something else would be an awesome feature. Being able to record your own mug animations with your camera. Like, you could record your face moving a certain way, then apply those custom recorded motions directly to another face. I mean, doing it by hand is okay, but being able to do it with your camera would be seamless and very fun.
SUPER TERRIBLE AND HORRIBLE!
by 🧞‍♀️paris❤️lover🧝🏻‍♀️ on 2019/01/19 13:49
it’s the worst! Most of the stuff doesn’t even work and everything it says above in the “description” is a LIE!!!! And I really don’t think you should download it. I don’t want some stupid developers response either saying “this must be a misunderstanding blah blah blah” because it is not! I am deleting this app and I want to say to everyone who is going to get it DO NOT GET THIS APP IT IS TERRIBLE!!! A much better app that you can get for face filters and stuff is MSQRD. I know that the developers are going to be all “MSQRD you can only take still photos and videos with the face filters blah blah blah” but WHO CARES ABOUT MOVING PICTURES BECAUSE VIDEOS ARE THE SAME THING!!! AND IF YOU REALLY WANT MOVING PICTURES GET THE APP CINEMA GRAPH!! ITS REALLY GOOD!
Not a SCAM APP
by LayZbones on 2019/11/05 20:49
This APP is legitimately fun. Get this app if you like having fun with your pictures and messing around with them, you and all your friends and family will get lots of laugh’s from it. I’m just a random dude who got this app and loved it & what better way to share the love than to tell others . Live your life , have fun , take pictures, then fool around with the pictures lol 😋 5 ⭐️’s
Definitely a hit
by notyaverage on 2017/11/01 02:22
I've had entirely too much fun on this app! The only thing keeping it from 5 star is the fact that despite paying money you still can not sync this with multiple devices. I'd really like to be able to have one account as I do not have or want a Facebook! Please make multi device sync a premium feature or at least give us a Google sign in option 🙏🏾 keep us the awesome work this app should be number one 😜
Read please :3
by Unicorn girly girl on 2018/05/19 19:29
Well, first of all, I’m pretty disappointed that I can’t create one of my own without paying........that was one of the only reasons I downloaded this app. (It said buy pass for extra creation tools when I pressed on create, was there any not extra tools that I can get to somehow? If so please tell me because I have not figured that out yet) other wise, the app is pretty great and funny! I’ll rate more stars if you explain this to me. Thanks! Alright!
I don't wanna pay
by kingboo2407 on 2018/01/24 22:14
It says it's a game where you make wools move in your own way. To do that you have to spend money other than that it's just memes if you can even call it that. The worst type of free apps are the ones who make you pay after you buy it and that's what this one does. I would subject an idea so they can make money buy making it so to get all the special effects more face movement options and music to get that you would have to buy it. So I hope this app will get better
Recent Update Bug
by DropDeadWolf on 2018/01/11 09:51
I recently downloaded this app and enjoy using it a lot. It is a lot of fun to mess around with and I love the idea of animating almost anything with a face, straight from your phone. But with this most recent update, everyone I attempt to start up the app, I am given a notice that I need to get the most recent update, which I have. This makes it to where I am unable to use the app at all. I’m not sure if anyone else is experiencing this issue, but I am. Once this bug is fixed, I will change my review no issue at all. Thanks. (I’m also using an IPhone SE)
Awful!
by gamersgudkdndnuj5 on 2019/07/18 01:54
First of all, I know you all want this to make ur own animations, right? Well, you really want it! It’s some crap about a monthly subscription, and it only comes with free dumb things like “who wants some” it’s so stupid! I recommend getting it, just to see that I’m right, and untill u make ur MAIN feature free, I will never download it. Don’t make a developer response saying stuff like “this is a mistake, everything’s free! So I give this 0 stars in all. I only gave it 1 star because it’s the least u can rate, but you know, I would give this 0 stars if I could! It didn’t even look real, like on the video it shows u! Bye.
Love the app but I do have a request
by Couldbeabettereditor on 2018/03/23 13:54
This app is amazing with how it is able to detect and animate faces. My one wish/request go the developer would add a way to export the face geometry as an fbx, 3ds, or obj file to import into 3d animation software. This would be a great tool for an aspiring animator. I wonder if any thoughts have been given to a body animator to go with this app. Just wishful thinking...thanks for the app!
Not as advertised.
by ➰➰😂➰➰ on 2018/07/09 19:21
Hi! I downloaded this app, I watched the video, and it looked so cool! The idea I got from your advertising video is that you can control someone else's face. I download the app, only to notice 4 awful things about this app. 1) it was difficult to navigate through. 2) it "couldn't read" 90% of my photos with a clear face 3) the graphics glitch, the face just moves very abruptly. 4) most importantly, what I could do for free was not what was advertised. I could make a picture say all of, what, three lame things? In the video, it showed you could move their eyes and mouth how you want. But no. You have to pay for that part. I noticed other people wrote this same thing in reviews, and the developer responses are like you guys don't know what you are doing. Like you don't really care. Like you're trying to make it seem like you had a good reason, when you just want money. Super unimpressed. Would never recommend.
Good affordable price, fun experience, funny and unique concept, would recommend
by Raptor claw 1627 on 2019/12/31 03:19
This is a really good app overall. It has several cool features and preloaded animations. Best experience if given premium. Only issue is the complexity of the app design. Would like to have it easier, but these type of apps require some skill and patience, but overtime it gets easier. Other wise a good affordable price and like they said “limitless designs”.
I would have given it two and a half stars if I could.
by Roxanne Jordan on 2019/10/14 14:05
Pretty much my only problem is that it costs quite an amount of money to do what I thought the game does. Doing fun animations with pictures, and making them come alive. but this just has all of it planned out for you. I sort of want a game where you can do, what it shows you can do in the adds, and a game where I can make my own animations with pictures without having it cost money.
The concept is okay, but
by leafhero on 2018/03/24 16:25
It’s a good concept, and it’s really cool, but when I put the animations on my face, it makes my face look all weird. It doesn’t look like my face, it looks all weird and distorted. I think i’m ganna delete the app for now, then maybe i’ll get it again to see if this feature is fixed. but overall, i think it could be a good app. ps, the format kinda looks like snapchat, maybe you could change the format a bit so it doesn’t look so much like snapchats?
Sooooo fun and entertaining
by unicornkora on 2018/06/23 14:20
Wow! I feel like this is one of my favorite games because you can pay to make your own project for very cheap! Edit: and I forgot to put this in, but this is 100% not a fake review!!!! Also, I love mug life so much that I still use it to this day and even made a reaction video of me just having a blast with it!! Love the people who made mug life ❤️
