Selfies are about being self-centered and only showing one side. It only shows yourself. With Backies we go beyond ourselves and try to see the whole picture.
American Fork, Utah (PRWEB) March 31, 2015
Reflective Practices today announces the release of a unique new iPhone app, Backies, the other side of a selfie. Backies combines both a selfie and the backie in a split-framed picture, providing a more complete story. The Backies app is now available to download free for the iPhone.
“Imagine if we could have had a backie to the famous Ellen DeGeneres Oscar selfie. Would we have seen Leonardo DiCaprio crying for not receiving an award for his performance in 'The Wolf of Wall Street?,'” said Chad Winks, lead project manager of Backies.
Backies lets people take a seflie, then immediately flip the camera around to take a backie. The app automatically combines the pictures into one. The Backie can be embellished, and then shared with friends through social media.
The Backies app is riding the seflies craze, that rose in 2013 and has since become part of everyday culture. A study put out by the Sony Corporation stated that 47% of adults admit to taking selfies, and that 40% of people aged 18-34 take selfies at least once per week.
“We see Backies as the solution to world peace,” states Winks with a smile. “Selfies are about being self-centered and only showing one side. It only shows yourself. With Backies we go beyond ourselves and try to see the whole picture.”
The Backies app includes layouts, filters, captions, fonts and customizable font colors. It is free to use and offers additional in-app upgrades for purchase.
