When I first started this blog, there isn’t much selfie apps out there. The one that I used the most for selfies and photo editing is Camera 360. Today, there are tons of camera apps and some are really great innovation that improve our selfie experience.
In this post, I will be sharing with you 11 selfie stick apps that you can’t miss. Notice that I mentioned selfie stick apps instead of selfie apps. This is because this list is geared towards selfie stick although we will be covering everything you need to know about the app.
There are a few great reasons to why you should be using selfie apps.
So, let’s start going through 11 selfie stick apps. There will be a download link for both android and apple user. The required IOS and Android version are also listed accordingly.
Just note that you don’t need all the apps below because there are some overlapping ground. Pick the ones that you are most comfortable with and you are good to go.
One of the most famous selfie app out there is probably Snapchat. In fact, there are a few readers that emailed me sharing their great experience with Snapchat.
The main distinction of Snapchat as compared to other camera apps is the various effects that happens only if you make certain gestures. For example, if you are using the rainbow effect and you open your mouth, there will be a stream of ‘rainbow river’ flowing out your mouth. It’s definitely a great experience for selfie lovers. (Check the video below).
On top of that, Snapchat is not just an app that allows you to take selfies. It’s integrated with social sharing system. You get to post your selfies on your feed and your friends get to look at it. It’s something like a mini Instagram or Facebook.
Not to mention, Snapchat also provides basic photo editing function. Having that said, if you are really into photo editing or you are looking for more complex configuration, check out other apps in this list. We have them covered for you.
Also, Snapchat is becoming more popular and thus more selfie sticks are compatible with it. For instance, if you can’t take pictures by clicking on the Bluetooth function with your phone built-in camera app, try Snapchat instead.
