Capture your friends' actual reaction faces with Reactr [App of the Day]

Reactr

There are tons of photo messaging apps out there, and they all generally do the same thing. Send a picture to a friend, and they send one back. Reactr aims to mix it up a bit by capturing reactions rather than the photos themselves.

Here’s how it works: It functions just like Snapchat. You send your friend a picture of… anything. Before you send, choose whether you want a video or photo reaction. Once your friend opens the picture, the app will automatically take either a photo or a video of their reaction. Their reaction then sends back to you.

And in our experiences, the reactions aren’t pretty.

Also, don’t worry about your reaction being sent to your friends every time… Reactr asks whether you’d like it to be sent or not.

The app catches us off guard every time, which is kind of the point. We don’t think people would generally be happy about their reaction faces, but it does capture real reactions, rather than recording them after the fact.

If all of this seems interesting to you, Reactr is free to download from the Google Play Store!
