If, like many these days, you have a "me, me, me" approach to photography then you'll enjoy this selfie app.

Look at me

B612 from LINE helps you snap selfies, allowing you to flick between more than 50 filters in 'real-time' to get a preview of your final image before you shoot.

There's a wide range of collage templates to choose from, and you can get more creative with tilt-shift and vignette effects (the latter won't work on all devices).

While B612's selfie photo taking features are rather basic, the ability to make video montages of up to nine videos and add music to it is rather cool. You can also create a video box to share with your friend. By using a code, the other person can then watch the video and record their own video in reply.

Where am I?

It's not that B612 is complicated to use, but it just doesn't feel as intuitive as other image apps. Navigation is a touch confusing; sometimes it was difficult to find my way back to certain options again. Having to press back twice to return to the previous menu didn't really help.

Average

B612 is a fun way to take selfies and the collage video feature is neat, but the app offers nothing new or innovative.
