Face Stealer has to be one of the creepiest apps we've seen, and we may or may not be including Girls Around Me in that statement.

"Do you ever want to look like celebrities?" the free iOS app's description asks. "Face Stealer will turn your face into someone else in real time."

Well, it sort of does do that. There's a selection of faces preinstalled that you can try on for size, including the Mona Lisa, Barack Obama, Nefertiti, and Albert Einstein.
