If you are addicted to selfie photos and hate those low light conditions, #NightSelfie could be the Windows 10 solution you have been looking for. The app utilizes your screen's brightness to act as a makeshift light, chasing away the shadows of the darkness to shed a little light on your subjects.
Available for Windows 10 PC and Mobile, #NightSelfie is a free, ad-supported photography app. Removing the ad-support normally costs $0.99 through an in-app purchase, but through the myAppFree promotion you can remove the ad support for free. If you just can't take enough selfies, #NightSelfie does a decent job of things and the myAppFree deal helps you enjoy the ad-free version at no extra cost.
There is not much to #NightSelfie. The Windows 10 app launches to a viewfinder for your front-facing camera. You have three control buttons at the bottom of the viewfinder that provide access to the app's settings, serve as a shutter button and provides you access to your Windows 10 device's brightness settings. There is also a gallery button in the upper right corner of the screen to access the image gallery.
#NightSelfie's claim to fame is that it helps you snap wonderful selfies regardless of the lighting. In well-lit environments, the camera operation is about as standard as you can get. Line up your subjects and tap the shutter button. When the lighting begins to fade and the shadows creep in, just tap the brightness button to access your device's screen settings. Increase the screen brightness to the maximum setting and in doing so, you turn the screen of your Windows 10 device into a camera flash as the selfie is captured.
Granted, the screen's brightness won't penetrate too deep into background shadows, but the light is enough to illuminate most of your selfie subjects.
#NightSelfie is typically a free, ad-supported app for Windows 10 PC and Mobile, with ad-removal a $0.99 in-app purchase. However, over the next 24 hours, with the help of the myAppFree promotion you can remove the ads for free. Just download #NightSelfie as you normally would from the Store and on first launch you'll be alerted to the deal.
#NightSelfie is an interesting photo app for Windows 10 and if you are into selfie images, this is an easy way to save a buck.

Crashes at the start Lame app
What screen brightness has got to do with the brightness of the photos taken with the camera?? Photo viewed on zero brightness display wouldn't make it a complete black photo right? :/
This app is for selfies, it makes the screen super bright to act as a front facing flash...
All the app does is take you to settings for display. Crank it up from auto then it takes a pic with a blank white background. honestly nothing ground breaking. Though its ok at best.
And it doesn't claim to do anything more.
In very dark room for example, a bright white screen is all you need for a selfie. Buy again, went not use the main camera with flash instead. Yes you won't see yourself in the screen but with this app you don't see yourself either. Unless the developer adds a small picture-in-picture to the White screen with a feed from the ffc. That's an idea!
