Is You New Date Lying About Their Age? (There's an app for that.)

One’s age can now be detected through scanning a photo, thanks to’s new API (application programming interface).
The API considers factors like the shape of one’s face, wrinkles, and smoothness of skin, among others, in checking for one’s age. The age detector might not be always correct, but after it studies your photo, it also gives an age range which might be more accurate. The API’s accuracy is dependent on the image quality of the photo and one’s pose in the snapshot. (more)
