Cute Fat Fox Photobooth is a great new app that lets you play purikura on your iPhone or iPad. Purikura are those amazing Japanese photobooths where you can add cute and silly decorations and words to your photos and then print them on stickers.
With this app, you just take a photo or load one from your photo gallery and then go nuts with all the cute decorations, which include hats, faces, flowers and food items. There are also some cool borders and you can add speech bubbles with your own text and even doodle things yourself in a range of colours. My favourite decorations are definitely the fat animals of the title – the addition of big round foxes, pandas and elephants is exactly what my photos have been missing all these years.
The app itself is really easy to use, and there are optional tips to talk you through how everything works. Decorating photos can be a bit slow but I’m still on a 3G iPhone so I’m sure that’s less of a problem for newer models.You can’t print these purikura onto stickers but it’s easy to share them on Facebook and Twitter through the app itself. I can see this being hilarious fun if all your friends have it too.
Anyway, I definitely recommend this app – it’s quick and easy to just add a few cute details or you can spend hours working on a masterpiece (and save your work as you go). If you make any amazing ones, please share them on the SCK Facebook page so we can all see!
