Androidify yourself with the Androidify avatar creation app

Androidify is an avatar creation app based around Google’s Android mascot. You can stretch and pull the green robot in all directions, changing it’s height and width, give it some clothes and change its skin tone.

You can create Android caricatures of yourself and your friends, which you can then assign to specific contacts in your address book. Or you can just create one for the hell of it; we had a lot of fun adding scars and a sparkly Michael Jackson glove to an eight foot tall Android in a blonde wig.

You can email your horrific creations to your friends, or post the results to Facebook via the Share tool.

Androidify has been prominently shown off at the Android stand at this years’ Mobile World Congress, where it’s gone down a storm. It’s already racking up over a million downloads in the Market, where you can get it now for free.

We created the one above to give you an idea of the results, and have included some shots taken at Google’s Android stand, where people queued up to Androidify themselves on a Motorola Xoom.

At the bottom is Android Community editor Chris Burns standing next to his Android likeness. Can’t tell the difference can you?

Androidify is free to download and is for devices running 2.1 Eclair or higher.
