Naver Japan, the company behind the popular Japanese messaging app Line, has just released another iOS app dedicated to the subtle art of taking selfies. Apparently, the new selfie app seeks to highlight "what is essential," which, as pointed out in Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's "The Little Prince," is "invisible to the eye." Small wonder then, at least to those who've read the classic allegorical novella, that the app is named B612, after the asteroid home of the book's title character. Subtitled "Selfie with the heart," B612 offers the following key features:
Oddly, there's no option to share photos straight to Line, although you can just save photos to your device's library and then access them from the messaging app itself. Optimized for iPhone and iPod touch running iOS 7.0 or later, B612 is available now on the App Store for free. B612 joins Line Camera - Selfie & Collage and Line Selfie Sticker in Line's selection of selfie-focused apps for iOS.
- 43 filters : 43 filters for you to apply, designed to evoke the time the little prince gazed at 43 sunsets in one day.
- Random filter : Sometimes it feels like it can take an eternity before you find just the filter you’re looking for. Just tap the random button!
- Vignette : Both a light touch and vivid expression have their places. Use vignettes to give your photos just the right amount of flavor.
- Tilt-shift : Blur the lines of focus for a gentle touch that will bring out the true you even more.
- Silent shutter : Sssh! Take a picture silently so as not to awaken the sheep sleeping soundly in his box.
- Collage shot : Show everyone a glimpse of your universe by putting your smiles together into one photo.
- Share : Post your pics and share easily to Facebook, Twitter, and even Instagram. (Only installed apps are displayed)
