Apps like Snapchat and Instagram do all kinds of funny things with people's faces when their filters are applied to a photo, but most of these filters are silly and don't improve the look of the person in the photo.
But now there's Meitu, an app with filters that are both silly and enhance a person's looks- by making them look extremely cute!
Meitu is an anime beauty app that puts a sparkle in your big, beautiful eyes, adds a glow to your eerily smooth skin, and makes your rosy lips look perfectly pouty.
What's that you say? These words don't describe your face at all? They will when Meitu is finished with you!
Recently there has been talk about Meitu collecting user data and selling it, but the company behind the app told CNET why Meitu asks for so many seemingly unneeded permissions upon download:
Meitu told CNET in a statement that the data collection code was included because the company is headquartered in China, where tracking services provided by app stores such as the Apple App Store and Google Play are blocked.
"To get around this, Meitu employs a combination of third-party and in-house data tracking systems to make sure the user data tracked is consistent," said a Meitu spokesperson.
Sounds legit to me, and what's a little third-party data collection when you're left looking this fabulous, amirite? *wink*
