Satisfy your selfie craving even in the dark!

‣ “Used this app at a birthday party tonight and it works fantastically. Took selfies with it all night, in a dark room and photos came out great. Great app!” - GLouBu

‣ “Really simple and easy to use app. But that's all you need! Snap a picture in low light with the touch of your finger anywhere on the screen. I love it! Great camera app!.” - MrMikeG

‣ “This app does exactly what it promises! Now the photos I take with my front camera in the dark look so great! :)” - thechampishere93

〉Take self-portraits in low-light using the front camera
〉Tap anywhere on the screen to take a picture
〉Can also be used as a mirror
〉Share with your friends

Perfect for those times when you want to take a selfie in bed, but usually can't since it's pitch black.

It creates a virtual flash by setting the screen brightness to max and turning the screen white while the picture is being taken. The brightness will reset back when you close the app.

Super bright screen, need a little more work.

This app, although did what it promised to do; It could use a little more work. The app takes over your brightness setting and put it on overdrive, the screen even without taking picture is bright, to take the picture, it's hard to see yourself if your doing it in the dark. Screen is dark, although, once you manage to locate your face, touch the screen, it flashes and you picture will be taken. The flaws, the big flaws, the app does not readjust your brightness setting, so you have to manually go back into settings to fix that. -if this could be fixed, it would be a nice app.

It crashes during every use

I downloaded this to try it out. Thank goodness I have this for free. The front facing pictures are quite bright, but the pictures are still low resolution. So don't expect miracles.

The far bigger issue is that the application is very unstable. It crashes when you try to save the image, and the image is deleted instead of automatically saved. It crashes when you attempt to forward the image.

It doesn't matter what app, Front Flash is going to crash. Don't bother downloading this app unless the developers plan on fixing the bugs.


No camera flash. Just a white screen. I was very disappointed (frankly angry). At least developers are good at marketing to hasty buyers like me. 😞
