MSQRD (Android / iOS)

One of selfie app most interesting and fun ever is MSQRD.

After downloading MSQRD on your smartphone / tablet, open the app and start having fun with the many masks that are at your disposal. To start, tap the button Log in with Facebook, if you want to link your account to the app, or alternatively use the app without logging in. Once you have done this, press the button Camera (the blue icon that you find in the center of the screen) to take a photo or, if you prefer to record a short movie, press the button Video.

The app will do everything automatically: it will detect your face and show you in real time the funny faces you will make as you scroll through the various masks. The only care you need to have to make the app work correctly is to position your face in the perimeter that is outlined on the screen. Also, while using MSQRD, I recommend that you take off your glasses: I have encountered some malfunctions when wearing them, especially when it comes to important frames. If you want to try all the masks in MSQRD, click on Catalog and then select one of the available categories to find the funniest ones!

Other apps for taking selfies

Selfie app

There are tons of other interesting applications that you can install on your device that allow you to take spectacular selfies. These apps, which you can download from both the Google Play Store and the App Store, deserve to be taken into consideration as much as the ones I recommended previously, so let’s ban the chatter and analyze it quickly.

  • Facebook (Android/iOS/Windows) – Facebook has acquired MSQRD and included most of the filters available in it in its camera. By recalling the camera of the Facebook app (via a swipe from left to right) and pressing the magic wand icon located at the bottom left you can browse all the available filters and “stick” them to your face.
  • Prism (Android/iOS) – while not really an app for taking selfies, I would highly recommend Prisma, which allows you to apply spectacular artistic effects to all the photos in the smartphone gallery or taken in real time with the device’s camera.
  • FaceTune (Android/iOS) – this app is one of the most popular with users, especially those who want to hide the defects of their skin at all costs: wrinkles, blemishes, freckles and so on. FaceTune can be downloaded from the Google Play Store at a price of 3.39 euros and from the App Store at a price of 4.49 euros.
  • BestMe Selfie Camera (Android) – this free app offers a wide choice of filters that allow you to embellish your selfies. Furthermore, its interface is free of “frills” and this facilitates its use.
  • Selfie Camera Expert (Android/iOS) – this free application is also an excellent alternative if you want to improve the quality of your selfies. To use it, all you have to do is let yourself be guided by the minimalist interface that distinguishes it.
