    One of the hottest apps on the market may upset you if it says you’re not attractive.

    The Ugly Meter app, which has been on the market for more than a year, recently gained popularity after Howard Stern mentioned it on his satellite radio show. Since then, the $0.99 app reached five million purchases.

    The app, which scans faces, rates your ugliness on a scale from zero to 10, with 10 being the ugliest. Brad Pitt scored high.

    Valerie Frias disagreed with the app’s ability to gauge ugliness.

    “Well I don’t know. Brad Pitt is pretty handsome, so you would think he would get a zero. Maybe there’s a glitch in the app,” she said.

    Beyonce Knowles, who was recently named the most beautiful person in the world by People Magazine, scored a dismal seven when the app scanned a photo of her face.

    The Ugly Meter analyzes facial shapes, features, and proportions. For a more advanced version of the app, the Ugly Meter PRO is available for $4.99.

    “Yeah, it’s a good one,” said Jesus Tejedo, who used the app. “Entertainment at the bar.”
