The photo editing app comes first in the ranking of free apps on iOS. It is rather greedy in personal data.
On Twitter, the keyword “Pixar” is this January 13 among the trends of the day. However, the Disney studio has not announced any new films. This popularity is actually linked to the use of an application called ToonMe, capable of transforming a person captured in a photo into a character appearing to come out of the Pixar universe. The app, which has no connection with the famous animation studio, is now the number one download on the App Store.
The website rather than the app
Once downloaded, the application, which is also available on Android, offers the user to pay 4.99 euros per month to obtain “Pro” features, which are however not detailed. The application also works in a free version, displaying advertising.
It also reserves the right to access certain photos stored on the mobile “to carry out marketing activities” and to use this data to display personal advertising, but promises not to sell them.
To take advantage of ToonMe without providing any personal data, it is best to go through his website, to which access is free. It is therefore not necessary to create an account to transform a photo into an image straight out of an animated film.
The company that owns the app is far from unknown. It is Linerock Investments LTD, specialized in the development of photo editing applications for ten years.
Its most famous application, downloaded 100 million times, is called Photo Lab. The development of applications, based on artificial intelligence, is entrusted to the teams of a Russian company called Vicman.
