Snap selfies with an additional point of view

Oh, the selfie.

Few digital era habits provoke such divided reaction. Selfies might be the end of the world. Or they might be the new way we communicate. (We wrote a story about that debate.)

But even the reluctant self portrait artist might get a kick out an app that puts a twist on the selfie: Frontback.

First snap a picture of what you see with the front-facing camera, then snap a selfie with your reaction using the back-facing camera. The app stacks them on top of each other. See Exhibit A here.

Yup, that's me (on the left).

Of course, Frontback lets you share your photo all sorts of ways across social media or old-fashioned email. Within the app itself there's a photo stream, much like you'd see on Instagram.

Frontback is available for Apple and, as of two weeks ago, Android smartphones.
