Nokia releases Glam Me self-portrait app for Windows Phone 8 Lumias

Nokia Glam Me

We gave you a sneak peek at Nokia’s Glam Me app a few weeks ago at Mobile World Congress and now the app is live the Store.

The app is a simple self-portrait app that uses the front-facing camera to take some adjusted photos of oneself, applying some filters and adjustments along the way. The app can smooth out your skin tone, whiten teeth, soften the image and adjust the eyes (makes them “more open”). Later, you can add one of 14 filters to it, including B&W, Lomo, fresh, violet, magazine and sketch.

The app is a Lens too for Windows Phone 8 users, so it should integrate nicely with the camera module.  Overall, it’s not the most exciting app but for those pinches where you need a self-shot, we guarantee you’ll want it. The app should also do well for the Lumia 620 and 720 users, who may be younger.

Pick up Glam Me here in the Nokia Collection. Thanks Jeff D., for the tip!

Nokia releases Glam Me self-portrait app for Windows Phone 8 Lumias


Get a faster SD card. I had the same issue and with a new SD card it's a fast as with internal memory.

I am using a SanDisk mSDXC 64GB. What are you using? I, along with many others, are also experiencing weird music sync issues...you seeing any?

That should technically get the job done. But Windows Phone has always been sort of weird with requirements to SD cards. So if a class 10 card is lagging, there must be a good reason for it.

You would think so, but there's also a whole list of problems with the 822 and SD cards when it comes to music and video. My entire music collection disappeared after I powered-on my phone!

I use the same card and had the same issue up until the last update. All good now. Now if they fix the 'Other' folder issue I'll be very happy. I'm using Lumia 810 on T-Mobile.

Shrink Storage to help reduce the amount of space in 'Other', but be advised, it takes forever (as in 24 hours or more, from my usage).
The 'Portico' update resolved the stutter for me for like 2 short videos. Now it's back and the weird thing is that video playback gets WORSE each time I watch a video!
And then there's the whole thing about music not behaving correctly- one night it's there, the next morning, it's all gone! Very, very frustrating.

hey man, in order for Shrink Storage not to take for ever , just flood your phone with videos or something over usb until it says its full then run the app it'll only fill whats lost thus not taking that much time. :) 

Yes! I can't even use the front camera. You can't see dust specifically, it just looks like every photo is taken through fog!

I had the same problem with mine, but I found a way to fix it. Take a can of air and gently force some air into five hole pentagon-shaped opening at the top of the phone. Also, try to gently force some air around the seam of the screen, by the camera, if the first suggestion doesn't work. It wont fix it permanently, but it may be a way to temporarily fix the problem for you...

Do we know that it's most users? Out of my admittedly small sample of three 920 users who I know personally, I'm the only one with the dust issue. No doubt it's a significant number though.

I put an otterbox case on mine and that stopped the dust from entering the camera. Before I put the case on I had 1 piece of dust.

i'm guessing that was a problem for the first batch of phones and since then the manufacturing issue has been resolved

Takes a while but you will see it eventually. It hasn't effected shots but I don't use front cam much. To me the problem is just it makes it look bad as in not built very well.

No dust on my ffc either (have my lumia 920 since december) and I live in a very dusty place, so I'm pretty confident that only a certain batch of phones were affected, maybe just at&t 920 ( not sure though)

I'm in Europe, bought my phone in Germany and it also has that problem. If I used the ffc often I would have taken the phone to Nokia by now. Since I don't, meh. It only pisses me off when it affects the proximity sensor. 

Its been almost 4 months for me - no dust. I rarely use the front cam though because the rear facing is so much better.

Dust everywhere in mine (Telstra, Australia), sent it back to Nokia for this and other reasons, wasn't fixed.

I installed it, it's pretty slick. Made me look decent in spite of the harsh lighting here at work. The Lumia magazine cover effect made me laugh.

Is this what they demo'd at MWC where it tells you where to move the phone to get you centered? That was sweet and Nokia are rad. Ain't nobody gonna break-a their stride.

I was thinking this was that app too. The rear camera is so much better. HTC sure knows people like to use that camera.

interesting how nokia lumia 920 are dropping prices. I knew they will drop price down. Now they have more available in stock

The only reason that I should change my lumia 800 is for the new apps, no love for 7.8 or 7.5 :( this sucks, cuz I really like my phone, more then any other lumia.
