Facer turns freemium, showcases exclusive watch face designs
Facer has long-been the first app many smartwatch owners think of when they consider watch face design and customization. It was one of the first of its kind, offering stylish options for the Android user on the go. Now, however, competition in the market has become more fierce. To stay abreast of its rivals, Facer has deducted $.99 from it’s original $.99 price tag and opened up a store of in-app purchases.
Since Facer is now free, they’ve got to monetize it somehow. Instead of having you pay upfront for the full service, the devs are making most of the app’s functionality available for free and then charging for exclusive, premium watch faces. This line of deluxe watch faces will include branding from the likes of Ghostbusters, American Dad, Garfield, and Sugapop. Word on the street is that Star Trek is next in line to receive a custom smartwatch face, and there can be little doubt that new fun faces are coming down the pipe as well.
In addition to sporting your favorite franchise, you’ll also be able to choose from a curated storehouse of upscale themes that are sorted by categories. Search or browse to find the smartwatch face that’s perfect for your attitude. You can even create a catalogue of your own masterpieces via the My Designs section. Check out the Facer Creator to get started on your own watch faces right away.
