Using a selfie stick as a smartphone accessory allows you to take pictures and selfies with much more diversity.
You can shoot from above or beneath and many other different angles or from a great distance of up to 10 meters by using a Bluetooth remote.
In addition to a selfie stick, you can use specific camera or selfie apps to make your pics even more special.
In this post I present to you some of these selfie apps...
Using Frontback, you can take a picture of an object with your back camera and a selfie of yourself with your front camera, showing your reaction relating to the object at the same time! Frontback automatically merges both separate pictures into one.
By sharing the image on the common social media platforms (via Frontback), your friends can not only see what you are seeing, but what you are thinking about it, as well.
GorillaCam offers two really nice features for all the people, who go crazy about their selfie sticks:
It does not only allow you to set a timer between 1 – 120 seconds before taking a selfie. It also has a built-in burst mode, that makes your phone take a couple of pictures one after another.
That means that you and your friends have sufficient time to take position before a pic is taken, thanks to the timer feature and that you can use your phone in burst mode, when doing sports.
The time it takes to take a specific amount of pictures depends on your smartphone’s camera speed.
Of couse both features can be combined, too. First switch your phone into burst mode and then activate the timer.
There are many more settings in GorillaCam, such as anti-shake and stop-motion. To find our more, visit the iOS App Store!
On selfies you don’t always look as good and attractive as you would like to.
With the help of YouCam Perfect, from now on your selfies will look a lot better, than they did.
You can use effects like “warm” and “soft light” while shooting or edit selfies afterwards, e.g. by adding more color to your pale face.
The app has a “create collage” feature, as well as a social media sharing function.
PicsArt is one of the most popular free apps for photo editing. It has been downloaded more than a hundred million times so far.
The application has so many different features to choose from. You can add digital makeup and motion blur or blend images.
Above that you can transform your selfies into cartoons and drawings and much more!
Like PicsArt, the free app Snapchat is very popular among smartphone users, as well.
The idea behind the app is very simple. You take a picture or record a short video and send it to one of your friends. Your friend is able to watch it for a couple of seconds.
After that it will be deleted automatically, which is not only good for your memory usage, but also for your reputation, in case the picture or video was taken in the wrong moment.
If you purchased the Wareway selfie stick or the XCSOURCE selfie stick and you don’t have a Bluetooth remote to trigger your pictures and there’s no shutter button on your selfie stick’s handle or it is not compatible with your phone, one of the following apps might come in very handy!
These apps enable you to trigger your smartphone’s shutter using gestures and facial expressions:
Crunchfish developed an application, which allows you to take pictures with a simple hand movement from up to 3 m distance.

The selfie app Whistle Camera takes a pictures, when it recognizes a whistle sound.
You can take selfies with just one hand and even gloves!
