Create some stylish avatars with FaceQ on BlackBerry 10

Recently while I was scanning through Android apps in the Snap store I came across FaceQ which instantly attracted my attention. FaceQ is a free application for creating avatars and I kind of like apps like that.

As usual with Android apps I took a quick look in Google Play to check out the reviews and I'm pleased to say that FaceQ has had over 45,000 five star ones so it must be doing something right.

As you will see in the above video, the app is very straightforward to use. You have your avatar filling the top half of the display and below that are a strip of features you can alter. These range from hair and skin to speech bubbles and hand gestures - so there's a ton of customization available.

There's a share option but as we are using an Android app this is useless to us on BlackBerry 10. Fear not though as you can save the image to your photo gallery and if you then want to share it you can do so via any accounts you have in your BlackBerry Hub.

The app works a treat on my Z30. I've not had the chance to test it out on a Q series BlackBerry so if you do please sound off in the comments if all is good or not?

If you've not used Snap before to get Android apps onto your BlackBerry 10 device just follow the instructions in the link below.

Let's support the native developers....i wish more could come aboard. Much as I don't worry about android apps but I don't feel really comfortable using them.

I support when I can, for example I use iGrann Pro over Instagram. And I always check BlackBerry World before I download any Android apps. But if BlackBerry World doesn't have it..... it's off to Snap. It's either that or go without.

Next BBM update....BBM Peek

Hahaha. Actually the app works great. I've used it a couple of times a week ago.

Haven't reloaded Snap since updating to 10.3 because of the announcement that an update was coming. Have just been holding off lol.
