  • This App Will Make You a Better Person
    Nowadays, with our hectic lives and demanding schedules, it's so easy to get swamped with the trivial and overlook the important.

    Thinking of giving up on #selfies? This app may change your mind! I just discovered CamMe - an amazing and FREE photography app that perfects the art of the selfie and highlights the evolution of app technology.
