The current generation is obsessed with selfies, no doubt. No matter what social media platform you use, be it Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat or even Twitter, selfies are the norm everywhere. However, the regular selfies have been replaced by more enhanced selfies. Apparently having a front camera is not enough for most users. With dedicated selfie apps surfing, we have the ability to add filters, stickers, AR masks, and whatnot to our selfies to make them stand out. However, with so many apps to choose from, which are the best to go with? Well, we're here to make the job easier for you. Read on, as we bring you our list of the best selfie apps for iPhone that you can use for your selfie game:

Top 5 Selfie Apps for iPhone


The only premium app on this list, and rightly so, Halide is probably the best camera app out there. With premium tools, a user interface designed from the ground up for iPhone 8 and iPhone X with superb detail, Halide is your go-to camera when you really want to take a photo rather than a quick snapshot. For selfies, the app offers an excellent portrait mode, as well as beauty mode to make you look even better. Plus, there's also RAW image support for those of you who like to spend time on manual post-editing.

Perfect365 PRO

Perfect365 is the app for you if you prefer beauty modes over lenses and filters. The app lets you try on new looks on the fly. However, the app would be more appealing to female audiences, given that the app does not include filters, but rather virtual makeup and styling tools. It comes with over 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-made styles, so styling is at your fingertips. If you want to go from selfies with filters to selfies that do face editing and makeup, then Perfect365 is the "perfect" app for you.

The app that started the whole filter set, Retrica is a full-fledged app for selfie lovers and even for photo editing lovers. With Retrica, you get over 100 stickers and even more live filters on the go. Also, the app lets you capture videos or GIFs along with the filters in real time. There is also the possibility to doodle on your images, to give them a more personal touch. Retrica also boats some of the highest quality filters available, and I personally have not been disappointed. Also, the interface is one of the simplest I've ever tried on a selfie app, so be sure to give this selfie camera app a try.

The Chinese app that is now globally favorite, Camera360 is one of the most overloaded selfie apps I have ever used. Aside from exquisite filters and a beauty and makeup mode, the app also comes with Motion Sticker & 3D Funny Stickers to make your snaps as awesome as possible. The app also has a fun challenge mode, which presents you with selfie challenges every day. All things considered, the app offers something for everyone and should make up for it with a nice selfie app. While the app requires you to log in to unlock all app features, the overall user experience is one of the best on Camera360. Give this app a whirl if you want a full selfie app.

Cymera is an app I use a lot on my iPhone, thanks to its clean and neat user interface. But that doesn't mean it lacks features. In fact, the app comes with 130 different filters, a variety of camera lenses, silent mode, automatic face recognition for touch-ups, and much more. The app is social media ready, thanks to collage and no-crop modes. You can also play with trendy stickers, animal masks, beauty filters, light effects, frames! As well as a super powerful camera app, Cymera also doubles up as an image editor, allowing you to retouch and add filters to images already stored on your device.
