Gus Fring yourself with the Breaking Bad: G.F.Y. Android App

by On August 29, 2012

Breaking Bad is a phenomenal show and a show that definitely deserves a few Android Apps. The Breaking Bad: G.F.Y. is a an app worthy of the show, and in case you don’t know what G.F.Y. stands for it means Go Fring Yourself… I’ll start this one out by saying if you haven’t seen Breaking Bad, especially season STOP READING unless you want to be spoiled. This is the first time I’ve had to use the old ‘Spoiler Alert’ tag in an article about an Android App, but there’s a good reason for it if you saw the finale of Season 4. The Breaking Bad: G.F.Y. App lets you Gus Fring yourself which means you get to see what it looks like to be blown apart with half your head gone. Yup, it recreates that infamous scene where the owner of Los Pollos Hermanos finally gets what’s coming to him courtesy of Walter White in pure Heisenberg form. Using the app is simple as you just need to take a picture of yourself or use one you already have on your phone. Unlike most apps of this nature you can’t adjust anything in your photo, but if you take a good up-close picture it will do all the work for you. Once the app get’s a hold of your photo you get Fringified’. You can choose to have you’re your photo superimposed onto Frings’ in a still or you can add it to “the” video from the show where all the action happens. Once you’re done blowing your face off you can share the photo or video with your loved ones via the usual methods or email, Facebook, Twitter, etc… The Breaking Bad: G.F.Y. app is a good one for fans to play with although there are a few issues here and there. The biggest issue I had with the app is that it blocks out your selections so you can’t clearly see the tab to make a video or picture. That’s easy to figure out though as the top tab is for videos, and the bottom for pictures. It would have been nice to be able to adjust your face as well, but if you take a good up close shot it’s not an issue. I really thought the video part was cool as you get to see that damned little bell ringing and all that ensues culminating with your face getting blown off. If you’re ready to Fring yourself, you can head on over to Google Play and pick up Sony Pictures Breaking Bad: G.F.Y. app for free.
