Facetune, the #6 most downloaded paid iOS app of 2014, is a powerful yet simple to use portrait editing app, enabling non-professional users to quickly retouch their portraits to magazine-level perfection. Facetune consistently performs as one of the best-selling paid apps in the world, with millions of paid downloads. Facetune for iOS has been ranked as the #1 Paid App in over 100 countries, and Facetune for Android took one week from launch in July 2014 to become the #1 ranked P&V App in 113 countries. Facetune has been featured by Apple, Google and Microsoft numerous times, including in Apple's Best of 2013, and Apple & Google's Best of 2014. The app continuously receives superb reviews from users and media, including Bloomberg TV, BBC, NYTimes, W.S.J. and Huffington Post. Examples can be seen on Youtube.
Facetune was 100% bootstrapped by Lightricks,an Israeli company founded by five entrepreneurs with experience in both industry and academia (including 4 CS PhDs with experience in Google, Adobe, and Microsoft research) to bring state of the art image processing technology to mobile and enable the creator in everyone. Lightricks has also been featured as the Facebook case study for mobile user acquisition, as well as at Facebook's F8 conference. Lightricks scaled to 24 employees in two years, solely on profits and with external investment to date. It is currently developing additional cutting edge mobile products which have sparked interest from several of the world's largest corporations.
A few weeks ago we launched Enlight for iOS, the most comprehensive image processing suite for mobile. It has since reached the #1 paid rank in 90 countries including the US, and was featured by Apple as the marquee Editors Choice, globally, for the entire first two weeks.
