Mike's NBC-TV stories

Cool apps for selfie photos and videos

Taking “selfies” and sharing photos and videos with our smartphones is worldwide phenomenon these days and there are lots of apps available to help you take them and share them. I have three of the best to share with us.

The most powerful selflie type such app I’ve seen is called Voyzee and it lets you select your photos and videos, edit them together, add music as a soundtrack and titles to your images. You can even do your own voiceovers. Then, you share it on social media. You can do all this through your smartphone – be it an iPhone or and Android. Voyzee is free and very simple to work with.

One more…a similar app to clan up your selfies but just for the iPhone is called Facetune. It costs $2.99 but and remove blemishes, whitens teeth, make you look like a celebrity.
