It’s no secret picking out glasses or shades is tough! Not only do I find myself trying on hundreds of pairs, but I also frequently bring along a trusted friend to ensure I’m picking out a pair that suits my face. Thanks to a new iPad app by Glasses.com, dragging a friend to the store may be a thing of the past.
The clever app uses the iPad’s front-facing camera to scan and create a 3-D model of your face. You can then virtually “try on” as many frames as you want, even creating side-by-side comparisons of different shades. With the swipe of your finger, turn your head to the side to view the frames from multiple angles.
Still need a friend’s opinion? Use the app’s sharing capabilities to ask your pals what they think.
