#PakistanSelfie - An App For Taking Independence Day Selfies!

Independence Day is just around the corner and we can see the preparations for the grand celebrations everywhere. Most of all, we will see so many Independence Day selfies on Social media during 13th and 14th August.

Now, we have an app for that too.

Check out Pakistan Selfie!

The app will tell you exactly what to do. It’s pretty neat and easy to use. 


You can either take a selfie or select one from your gallery. On selecting Camera, the app will access your front camera, you will see a face marker too. Adjust your face in it and take a picture.


The next step is to select a filter, this app comes with five different filters, you can select the one you like and let the app do its magic.


You will also note, that you can’t apply these filters to anything other than a face, the reason is the use of Facial Recognition Technology. This app detects a face and its features such as eyes, eyebrows, forehead, nose, and lips, etc., and paint whatever filter you have selected.


The picture will be automatically saved in your gallery. You can also share your selfies directly from the app to your social media.

#PakistanSelfie is available on both Android and iOS stores.

Get some great selfies this Independence Day and share them with #PakistanSelfie to their Facebook page!

Happy 14th August! :)

Back in December 2009, I started my career as a Jnr. Quality Assurance Engineer and my role was focused on testing the applications that we were enhancing along with the maintenance of QA processes, environments and servers. It’s been almost 8 years and my role has evolved into a strategy maker but implementing QA activities is still the most favorite part of my work.

During this time, I have worked on revamping the course outline and have added some workshop facilitation techniques in our usual lecture style classes.
