New Cartoon App Is Taking Over Social Media

Share post:

Viola AI Artist, an app that turns users into a Pixar-worthy cartoon avatar by harnessing users’ faces and transforming them into three different cartoon styles from which users can choose with complete shading, is gaining ground on social media.

One of the important things everyone needs to know about the app is that it is free for Android and iPhone devices and offers users an ad-free premium option.

The app doesn’t work well for dogs, cats, etc. and images where the app says faces can’t be recognized.

Images of cut-off heads often work but with a strange halo the app automatically fills in.

In terms of privacy, the app collects personal information about users, their phones and their online activities.
