The front camera of a smartphone is meant for taking selfies, and we’ve seen OEMs releasing new products with better and better front snappers. However, in most of the cases, the rear camera is still the best one you have, and maybe sometimes you want to take a better picture of yourself, or maybe the front one has a pretty poor quality.
The problem, however, with the rear camera, is that you don’t actually see the captured surface, which can become pretty annoying. But if you’re the owner of an iPhone, there’s now an app that can help you with that. SelfieX is a new entry on the iTunes store and it has already amassed great ratings from those who have downloaded it.
The concept of the app is very simple, just hold your iPhone up to your face and the app will tell you which direction to move in order to get the best shot. The app takes the picture automatically, so that you won’t have to search for the shutter button to press it, which is really convenient. Thus, when you will in the frame, the app will announce, “say cheese” and will take a picture. Incredibly easy, right?
After the picture is taking, you will be able to adjust the lighting, contrast, and color; when you’re done, you can share it directly to Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter. The app requires iOS 8.0 or later to work and albeit it’s compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch it has been optimized to work on the iPhone 5, iPhone 6, and iPhone 6 Plus.
