Ellen DeGeneres fans create hilarious Ugly Selfie Booth app for iOS

Complete with nifty features and tons of gnarly “uglies,” Ugly Selfie is a sore sight for sore eyes.
Fancy your girlfriend with nose hair and a Mike Tyson tattoo? Done. Want to give your mother a monstrous makeover? Mix and match the piercings, warts, acne, femme ‘stache, and eighties makeup. She may not think it’s funny, but you’ll be crying.
“We weren’t sure if the selfies had gone fully mainstream yet, but after Ellen DeGeneres started talking about this weird trend on her show, we chose to stick with the name,” said Austin Church of Bright Newt. “She’s a talented comedian and does a lot of good for people, so an homage to Ellen seemed fitting.”
The app looks and works great on iPhone, iPod, and iPad, thanks to an intuitive user interface, easy resizing & rotating for a realistic (or unrealistic)
Once you're finished, you can save your ugly selfies to your camera roll, email them, or share them with your friends on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram. You can even have uglie selfies printed as postcards and mailed anywhere in the world.
Anyone can be beautiful, but it takes real guts to make yourself ugly on purpose. Download the free app here: https://itunes.apple.com/
