It is so tempting to appear in different costume even in correspondence. Running iOS 4.3 or later PhotoSmileys helps to try on a new image.

That may not surprise anyone today, but PhotoSmileys uses definitely advanced facial recognition technology to make this character behave. The smiley starts smile, kiss, laugh, wink and even threaten like the cartoon character. Nine different emotions make up a set for all characters, which are eight in number.
