This year has been challenging for many, with the COVID-19 crisis continuing, having to get used to communicating via phone, video or the internet, adjusting with working from home (or losing a job), the election, unrest and division in the country and living amidst the realities of a global pandemic: having to stay healthy and look out for others, looking out for something greater than ourselves, being forced to say goodbye and talk to people living outside our homes over video and realizing that this will not be over any time soon.
Understandably, COVID fatigue is setting in. We hate our quarantine hair, we just want to travel again, and find it hard to reconcile with the fact that we just want to live our lives, but people are dying from this virus. We could all use a little bit of joy going into the holidays, so what if we told you that could be achieved via mobile app? In this review, we will cover REFACE: Face swap videos and memes with your photo, which might be just what you need to bring a smile to many masked faces and say good riddance to 2020.

There is no doubt that REFACE is one of the hottest and most fun apps on the market right now. How else could you become that star or meme icon that you always secretly wanted to be? Also, it is just plain fun, something we all need in 2020. But, given the high premium prices, we can only recommend the app to those who either want to use it sparingly or spend a hefty price to use it as many times as you want. At face value, we highly recommend it, just with some reservations. Before you download it, consider how much you intend to use it. If the answer is a lot, go ahead and get it. If you are more apprehensive, it may be best to save and find an alternative. Regardless of your decision, REFACE opens up more opportunities via mobile. Pretty great!
