Yesterday I launched my new app, MaskerAid. It’s too early to tell how the response has been in terms of numbers. In terms of sentiment, however, the response has been great!
If you were still holding out on trying MaskerAid — which is free to try! — you may wish to check out what these fine folks had to say about it:
- Six Colors
- 512 Pixels
- Rambo Codes by Gui Rambo
- Cult of Mac

- In the News
- iOS Today
- Cult of Mac (again)
MaskerAid also seems to have found itself a ton of use cases, other than simply hiding your own children’s faces. Some of these I never expected, and all of them are very clever:
- Teachers may find that they wish to share shots within their classroom, but don’t necessarily need to fuss with determining which students have social media releases filed.
- Foster Parents aren’t legally allowed to post photos of the children they’re fostering. Despite, I would imagine, them often (always?) feeling like they’re members of the family.
- One may find that the profile photo they want to use for dating apps happens to be a group shot. By putting emoji on the other faces, it’s clear who is the one looking for love.
- Protestors are, sometimes without hyperbole, taking their lives in their hands by standing up for what is right. MaskerAid can be a useful tool to keep their identities private.
- The same is true of soldiers.

- On a more fun note, MaskerAid is an excellent way to obscure faces in amusement parks, or even better, on rides themselves.
- If a boudoir photographer wanted to share a photo that’s perhaps just a bit too risqué, MaskerAid can be used to tastefully (or humorously!) cover that which should not be shown.
If you haven’t given it a whirl yet, I’d love for you to give MaskerAid a try.
