It seems like more and more apps that used to be exclusively on the iPhone are now migrating to the Android OS, perhaps an indication of the growing popularity of that OS — and Steve Jobs recent rantings against Google? It is now the turn of the popular Vanity app to be available on Android devices.
The Vanity app uses the well-known Fibonacci’s Golden Ratio to calculate facial attractiveness. It’s all mathematical, so is not subjective at all.
In this video, [a young] Adriana Lima’s facial features are being input. Unfortunately, it’s still up to you to enter the facial coordinates manually (Face Recognition software, anyone?), taking away some of the fun from the whole process. Imagine what fun an instant result from a photograph would have generated.
From the list of supported languages, can we draw the unscientific conclusion that it is mostly US English, Chinese, Japanese and Spanish people who are the most vain?
Oh, by the way, Adriana Lima scores a 9.4 out of 10. Top that, if you can, wicked Queen!
I wonder if the female and male ratios are different? Why should it be, Fibonacci?

Tav Shande today announced an Android version of Vanity(TM) 2.0, the world’s first face-Rating App for the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. The innovative mathematical tool for measuring the attractiveness of any human face can now be enjoyed by millions of Android and iPhone users. The update to the popular app is now available on the App Store and the Android Market Place. Users can now log into their Facebook profiles and post results they wish to share directly from the app to their wall. Users can also send email invites to all their friends to join in and score.
Unlike beauty, a person’s attractiveness is a very quantifiable thing. Vanity(TM) uses The Vanity Engine(TM) which incorporates Fibonacci’s Golden Ratio to calculate facial attractiveness by allowing users to mark key facial features and measure against this ratio. Mathematicians, scientists, and naturalists have known this ratio for years. It’s derived from something known as the Fibonacci sequence, named after its Italian founder, Leonardo Fibonacci. According to scientists, facial attractiveness played a major role in shaping human evolution, and it can now finally be easily measured using Vanity(TM) on your iPhone and Android phone.
The Vanity(TM) application is extremely easy to use. Users just need to open the application then get or take a photo, follow the on screen prompts, and let Vanity(TM) calculate a score on a scale from 1-10. It’s that easy! Scores can be shared through Facebook wall posts or email messages from within the app at the push of a button.
