Everybody's suddenly posting pictures of what they'll look like when they're old — here's how
People are posting results on Twitter, and its provided a few good laughs in our work chat. If youre wondering how theyre doing this, its by using an an app called FaceApp, which is now the top trending free app in the iTunes App Store. You can download and use for free for three days.

The apps privacy policy said it collects the pictures you upload to its service, so keep in mind that its keeping the selfies you take. Also be warned that one developer, Joshua Nozzi, said on Twitter that it appears the app may try to upload other pictures from your library. If youre concerned about this, dont give it access to your photos when it asks, just access to the camera.
Heres how to try the filter if you want to get in on the fun:
Open the app and decline the subscription offer
Use the free trial.
