"It wasn't just made up, like, 'Hey this is what I think is beautiful,'" said co-creator Jo Overline. "It's published math behind how it's calculated." The app uses those facts, such as how far apart your eyes are and how big your nose is, to rank your beauty on a scale of 0 to 100; 100 is hot, 0 is not. And the app tells you why you rank a certain way. It took Gilbert native Overline and his partner about a year to develop Ugly Meter Pro, the $4.99 version that uses facial recognition software to determine how attractive you are.This type of application is more like object recognition than facial recognition for ID management but the two are closely related.
