Smile with Selfie Stick

Following the selfie mania a new app has introduced which will allow taking selfie or groupfie without a selfie stick. The new camera app will let a user take selfie or groupfie by just tilting his/her head and without a physical selfie stick.

The app named as “Selfie Stick”, is designed by San Diego-based iOS developer Ford Davis who feels that the need to carry an extra bit of kit just to snap a selfie could be reduced with better self-timer software, as reported by media.

This app has a free face-detecting feature that starts the timer as soon as a user tilts the head. To take a photo, the user has to tilt his/her head till a green circle is fully drawn on the screen. After the face is locked in, the green colour of the circle starts changing through orange to red to show the user how much time is left before the shot will be taken.

This may not persuade selfie stick loyalists to switch to this app. The physical selfie stick follows other software self-timer apps that have voice-triggered options, and apps that snap a shot when you smile.

Davis himself has admitted that the app is not flawless and developments will be needed. The app though has received many applauds when showcased in the ongoing Consumer Electronic Show (CES) in Las Vegas.
