Facebook’s NPE Team, a subset of the social network focusing on making consumer social apps, has unveiled a new app called Whale that is dedicated for meme creation. First discovered by Apptopia and reported by The Information, the app secretly went online on 15 November 2019.
Whale lets users edit photos with text and stickers to create memes to be shared online and with friends. While such photo-editing apps are not new to the market, an advantage here is that Whale is free to use without purchase or subscriptions.
To create a meme, users can capture photos from their smartphone, select images from their camera roll, or simply source for suitable graphics from the app’s library.
There are four layouts available, including blank and four-grid templates. With the emojis, text, effects and filters available, as well as the ability to illustrate memes from scratch using a drawing tool, users can generate witty content easily.
Finished graphics can also be cropped or cut out and turned into stickers to be shared with friends and family.
The Whale app is, unfortunately, currently only available in Canada, as are NPE Team’s Aux social music listening app and messaging app Bump.
