If you want to have fun with your picture gallery you may want to give KitCut a try. This is a fun little app that lets you cut and paste your head, or someone else’s, on just about any picture you like. Have you always wanted to see what you’d look like with a cartoon body? With KitCut you’ll have your chance to be a cartoon character. It works in conjunction with Facebook so you’ll need to be logged on before you can use this app. This is a free app and it’s compatible with the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.
There may be a ton of photo apps in the App Store but not many that are quite like KitCut. This really is a unique little app that has the potential to be a lot of fun. What makes this app unique is that it allows you to take two completely unrelated pictures and mash them up into something entirely new. There are lots of apps that let you add text or effects to your pictures but very few that let you join two images together.
While this app sounds like a lot of fun, and it certainly has the potential to live up to this, it falls a little short for a couple of reasons. It is completely dependent on Facebook Messenger – you can’t even begin using it unless your logged on to your Facebook account. This seems a little strange and unnecessary. There are many different platforms that people use for sharing pictures with friends and family so to make the app reliant on Facebook is rather limiting. The other problem is that the editing window is simply too small. It doesn’t even take up half of your devices screen and you have to constantly manipulate the images your working with to be able to see them. This app will require 46.8 MB of available space on your iOS device.
How it Works
When you open the app you’ll be directed to log on to Facebook and allow the app access to your public profile. Once you allow this you’ll be transferred back to the app and you can get started creating interesting pictures. First you have to select an image of your own with a good head shot to use as a starting point and then you can select a fun picture from their gallery to cut and paste with your own or you can search the internet for a different picture to use. The process is pretty simple you just tap on a picture to select it, draw a circle around the piece of the picture you want to keep, and tap on the checkmark to save your editing. The image will then appear in the small window at the top for editing. Unfortunately this area is so small that you won’t be able to see the entire image at one time which makes it difficult to picture the final effect. This is definitely a little frustrating.
The good thing about the app is that it does give you quite a few editing effects – there’s more to it than just splicing two or more images together. You can also add text to your images and draw pictures around them as well. It’s just too bad the editing window is so small because otherwise this app has a lot of potential.

Editing window is too small
KitCut has the potential to be a great app it just needs a couple of changes to take it to that next level. It would be good if the developers removed the requirement to use the app with Facebook so that users have more options and this app would definitely be a lot better if the editing window was bigger. There’s certainly room for improvement here.
