Mixamajig is from the makers of Slide-a-ma-jig and the concept is the same but with some additional tricks and flair. The app lets you create silly “kooks”, one body section at a time. Swipe across the screen to change out the head, middle and bottom. There are over two hundred different body parts to mix and match. These are crazy Kooks to begin with and you’re going to end up with a ridiculous looking creature at the end, which is the whole idea of the app. Up to this point the app feels a lot like Slide-a-ma-jig but once you visit the settings screen you’ll discover that there are additional things to do. You can use a picture of your own to create a new face for a Kook. After you’ve scaled and cropped the face it will be added to your choices. You’ll then be able to view the face when you’re swapping things out and making changes. You can also add in photos of your own to use as a background display behind your Kook. Even if you don’t add your own backgrounds there are built in choices to toggle between. When your Kook is picture perfect you can save it to your Photo Library. Feel like sharing it with the rest of the world? You can do that via Twitter, Facebook or email.
I liked the original Slide-a-ma-jig but I think these additional features really kick Mixamajig up a notch. This app is pure silly fun for all ages and I’m looking forward to updates with additional kooky bits and pieces.
