App Of The Week

July 11, 2017
Sticky AI is a new app from Prisma Labs, the second product from the developer following the company’s eponymous AI-powered art filter app that took the web by storm last summer. Sticky AI sets its sights to create great selfie stickers to use in iMessage, Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, and more. After opening up the app, you can either snap a picture or import it from your photo library. Then, Sticky AI will instantly cut out the background of your picture to leave just the people on a transparent background. Alternatively, you can press and hold the camera button to take a couple seconds of burst shots that will automatically be stitched together into an animated sticker, or GIF, depending on what your messaging app of choice supports. There are two filters: a black-and-white outline effect and a vaguely cartoonish style, which can be added to the picture by tapping on a cutout person. Tapping the background shifts it from transparent to a series of solid colors, and a text icon allows for captions. The finished sticker can then be sent as an image in iMessage, WhatsApp, Messenger, Snapchat, Telegram, or Skype by default, but you can ultimately send the finished product to anything else that accepts images from the iOS Share Sheet.
