Textify Me

Just occasionally there are programs which turn up on any device which ar just fun yet when you look into them they are actually quite technically Advanced.

Textify me is an app for the MAc found in the MAc store which was mentioned on MacBreak Weekly by the venerable Andy Ihnatko.

The premise is a simple one this app turns you into the Matrix.

The Webcam light comes on on your device and the screen displays a video of you created using ASCII charaters (letters)

This is being rendered in realtime. The application lets you change the colour of the text away from Matrix green to maybe a twinkle of blue or a hue of Orange?

However this app has a final twist up its sleeve because under preferences there is a button, a magic button one which will turn the app into your default mac screensaver.

Leaving this on on a mac in an office and watching from a distance is a sport just in itself…

As i said, simple yet effective..
