New app revolutionizes the selfie game

By: Irene Pool

Technology is rapidly growing in this day and age, and we are always trying to think of ways to stand out. But how do we change the world behind a selfie? We can add filters or decorative borders to make the photo stand out, but those features have been around for years now. So how do we bring the game to the next level and make selfies more interactive?

Selfies have become a competitive field with friends trying to out-selfie one another. People are climbing bridges to snatch that perfect photo or jumping out of planes to capture the moment. But to take a photo that allows the viewer to see every single angle of the scenery would definitely stand out!

Fyuse is an app that adds a sense of depth to a photo by making it 3D on your smartphone. This app is compatible for both iOS and Android products, making it available to a large audience. This app works through “spatial photography” (source).

This app makes a photo feel like you’re truly at the location. By looking at the photo, you can tilt or even move your phone to make the photo come to life. It allows you to view an image completely, as if you were truly walking around it. This app combines the use of a video, animated GIF and 360-degree panorama.

The next time you’re thinking of what will make the perfect photo, think of this app.
