They can choose to use the photo taken or take another.

By Wednesday, July 17, the Face App was the most downloaded application for both the iOS and android.

FaceApp lets users turn moody faces to merry ones, see what they would look like grey haired and grizzled, and turn back the hands of time, among other things.

Launched in 2017, FaceApp isn't necessarily new, but it's making headlines again because the app has gotten good - like, eerily good - at showing users what they'll look like when they age.

Somehow Supergirl looks even more wholesome.
