Tav Shande Makes Chuck Norris Cry with Launch of New Image Editor App “CryFace” 

CryFace by Tav Shande invites iPhone and iPad users to create, capture, and share that emotional moment when the weeping begins and see how they or their friends might look with a face full of salty tears. The hilariously fun and creative image editor app is known to make even the toughest men and women cry like babies. 

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) Feb 13, 2013

iPhone and iPad users who wonder how they or their friends might look with damp cheeks, or a quivering lip with a stream of tears and running mascara, can now have their wish fulfilled thanks to the hilariously fun new app CryFace.

Designed by Tav Shande, CryFace is a remarkable image editor app that lets users instantly make any person’s face appear to cry. They simply use the app’s simple interface to play with photos taken from the camera, photo library, or Facebook, and see how they or their friends could look while sobbing. They can also use the app’s handy Gallery feature to view their before and after photos.

For even more personalization users can use the app’s Meme Text Generator to create and send their own inventive messages embedded right onto the photo and show the entertaining results to their friends via social sharing.

“Who hasn’t wondered if it is even possible for the legendary Chuck Norris to cry?” asked Tav Shande. “Well, now with CryFace, you don’t even have to risk your life attempting to make him shed a tear! You can achieve what was previously thought to be impossible and turn the mighty Chuck Norris into a big cry baby. It’s fun, easy to use, and it’s an app that really creates an emotional image we can all relate to. We have all cried at one point in time or another, now with Cry Face you can command those tears. It’s the most fun you’ll have making yourself and all your friends cry.”

CryFace, the hilarious and fun image editor app that lets iPhone and iPad users take command of their tears and make anyone appear to cry, is available now on iTunes at The app requires iOS 4.3 or later.
