Top 5 Selfie Apps for Android
1. Sweet Selfie
Sweet Selfie is one of the best selfie oriented apps on the Play Store, and my favorite too. The app comes with all the features you’d expect of a selfie camera, and then some. Sweet Selfie allows users to beautify their images with trendy filters and special stickers, along with smart auto beautify, amazing blur, vignette as well as retro features. There are also features such as teeth whitening, and muscle stickers, so you can easily try a new look. The app’s interface is also nice, with all of the actions laid out nicely.

Also, you get a full-fletched editor with features such as mosaic blur and object remover.

Top 5 Selfie Apps for iOS
The only premium app on this list, and rightfully so, Halide is probably the best camera app out there. With high-end tools, a UI designed from scratch for iPhone 8 and iPhone X featuring beautiful details, Halide is your go-to camera when you want to really take a photo rather than a quick snapshot. For selfies, the app offers a great portrait mode, along with beauty mode to make yourself look even better. Additionally, there’s also RAW image support for those of you who like to spend their time in manual post-editing.
Perfect365 is the app for you if you prefer beauty modes over lenses and filters. The app allows you to try new looks on the fly. However, the app would more appeal more to the female audience, considering that the app does not incorporate filters, but instead, virtual makeup and styling tools. It comes with more than 20 makeup and beauty tools so you can customize your personal style, including shadows, liners, lipsticks, and more! Oh, and there are over 200 pre-set styles, so stylization is just a mere touch away. If you want to move away from just selfies with filters to selfies that do a proper face touch-up along with make-up, then Perfect365 is the “perfect” app for you.
The app that started the entire game of filters, Retrica is a full-fledged app for selfie lovers and even for photo editing enthusiasts. With Retrica you get over a 100 stickers and way more live filters on the go. Additionally, the app allows you to capture videos or GIFs as well with the real-time filters. There’s also the option to doodle over your images, to add a more personal touch to them. Retrica also boats of some of the highest quality filters available, and personally, I wasn’t disappointed. Also, the interface is one of the simplest I’ve ever tried on a selfie app, so make sure to give this selfie camera app a try.
The Chinese app that is now preferred globally, Camera360 is one of the most overloaded selfie apps that I’ve ever used. Apart from exquisite filters and a beauty & makeup mode, the app also comes with Motion Sticker & 3D Funny Stickers to make your snaps as funky as possible. The app also has a fun challenge mode, which presents you with selfie challenges each day. All things considered, the app offers something for everyone and should make up for a great selfie app. While the app does require you to sign-in in order to unlock all of the app’s features, the overall user experience is one of the best on Camera360. Give this app a whirl if you want a complete selfie app.
Cymera is an app that I use a lot on my iPhone, thanks to its clean and neat UI. But that doesn’t mean that it is short on features. In fact, the app comes with a 130 different filters, a variety of camera lenses, a silent mode, automatic face recognition for face touch-up, and a lot more. The app is social media ready, thanks to collage and no-crop modes as well. You also get to play with trendy stickers, animal masks, beauty filters, light effects, frames! Apart from a super powerful camera app, Cymera also doubles up as an image editor, allowing you to touch-up and add filters to images already stored on your device.
