17. Try SNAP! for your iPhone.

SNAP! is a tool that unleashes your iPhone's potential to take amazing selfies. Among many other things, it has a built-in shutter button, an anti-slip grip design and even detachable lenses. It makes a big difference.

Take that selfie! Just press the iPhone's white button and you can take a photo while filming.
