Best Android Front Flash Camera App for Night Selfies: Night Selfie Camera

Night Selfie Camera app for Android
What We Like
  • Easy to use and intuitive.

  • Being able to change the color of the flash seems to help enhance the quality of the photos taken. 

What We Don't Like
  • The app is free to use, but the ads that run on it are a bit distracting. 

Trying to find the right lighting for night selfies can be a hassle, but the Night Selfie Camera app makes it just a bit easier. 

Features such as a timer, color effects, and a customizable flash and brightness color are especially helpful. If you're using a selfie stick, having a timer along with your front camera light source can make taking photos with your friends much easier. 

The customizable flash and brightness color also gives you some variety when it comes to setting up a light source. You can choose from a series of colors ranging from white to yellow to orange. 

And once you've taken a photo, you can easily share it with your social media apps via its convenient share button. 

Night Selfie Camera is free to download and use, and is only available for Android devices.

Best Basic Selfie Light App for iOS: Selfshot

Selfshot app for iOS


What We Like
  • Photos can be taken in landscape or portrait mode, which can be helpful for group photos.

What We Don't Like
  • Features such as the Self-timer and Burst (which is 10 selfies taken rapidly with just a tap) seem like basic features that should be included within the free version.

Selfshot is a front flash camera app that allows you to take selfies and video selfies in low-light situations. It's worth mentioning, however, that it's a very basic app unless you pay separately for other features, such as stickers, filters, frames, and even the ability to record video.

Selfshot is currently only available for iOS devices. It seems at one point there was an Android version, but the Google Play Store no longer has a listing for it. 

The app is free to download and use, but Selfshot's premium features, such as the ability to capture video, the removal of ads, and sticker and filter packs, have individual prices that range from $0.99 to $1.99 each. 

Selfshot can be used with social media apps, including Snapchat, Instagram, and Facebook.

Easiest Front Flash Camera App to Use: Selfie Master

Selfie Master Android app
What We Like
  • Decreases your selfie's viewfinder/preview to use more of your phone's screen brightness for a bigger flash. 

What We Don't Like
  • Can't compare filters side by side. Instead, you have to keep tapping the same icon over and over again.

Like many of the apps on this list, Selfie Master uses the brightness of your phone's screen to provide a front camera flash light source. 

The app also allows you to customize its camera, letting you control its brightness, exposure, focus mode, and white balance

Selfie Master is available for ​Android devices and is free to download and use. 

Selfie Master doesn't seem to have its own direct link to share your photos with various social media apps. But the app should have a direct link to your phone's built-in photo gallery app. You can share your Selfie Master photos from your gallery app as you normally would any other photo.

Best iOS Selfie Light App For Low Light Situations: Moonlight

Moonlight app for iOS


What We Like
  • Its filters are specifically designed to enhance photos taken at night.

What We Don't Like
  • Not enough extras. It would have been nice to see a collection of stickers or emojis to have a little more fun with photos.

Moonlight allows you to take better lit nighttime selfies by letting you adjust the exposure levels while taking a selfie, and the brightness levels of the photo after you've taken it. 

Its most unique feature, however, is the app's ability to optimize your night selfies by rapidly capturing four photos, combining them into one brighter photo, then using an algorithm to calculate the exposure that will reduce the most grain and noise. 

Moonlight also includes a self-timer, filters, and the ability to share your photos with social networks like Facebook and Instagram.

Moonlight is available for iOS devices and is free to download and use.
