SelfieX - Automatic Back Camera Selfie

Last modified
Wednesday, October 4, 2017

Description of App

The app lets you take selfies with the better rear camera of the iPhone. The problem is, when you turn the screen away, you can’t see if your face is framed the way you want it to be. This app voices directions to guide your framing: right, left, up or down.

When you aim the iPhone at your face at the right angle, the app automatically takes a photo.

Turn your phone back to make quick edits (crop and tune brightness, contrast, saturation) and share.

How it works:

1. Aim your iSight camera at yourself
2. Listen to the instructions while catching the angle
3. Turn your device back
4. Edit, save and share

I'ts the only way to take decent photos on my own. Hoping another update comes, fearing this will become a zombie app like guided photo which did the same thing.

I like the simple design of this app, especially the delete button right within the app and the sharing options also seem standard and accessible. I'd love it if one could give your photo a name within this app?
