Microsoft has been on a roll this year with its iOS and Android development game, and is finishing the year out with an iOS-only app that does just one thing: take selfies. Microsoft Selfie, released this week, snaps, enhances and saves selfies — and that’s it.
According to the app description, Microsoft Selfie sets itself apart from other photo filter apps by deeply analyzing the picture.
“The app takes age, gender, skin tone, lighting, and many other variables into account, applies different models automatically and finishes enhancement with just a single click,” the description reads.
This isn’t the first selfie app Microsoft has released; Lumia Selfie came out a year ago with plenty of customization features for selfie-loving Windows Phone owners. The iOS app is much more stripped down, with a slider for how much enhancement you want to include in the photo, and a set of 14 filters ranging from Boost to BlueDawn.
The app does a pretty good job of reducing noisy images and smoothing out little imperfections you may not want to broadcast to the world. The free app is available now in Apple’s App Store.
