"Mirror, mirror on the phone"

Reviewed by / Aug 31, 2011

Use your camera as a mirror.

Well, it's obvious that to a greater or lesser degree, we all have used our phone screen as a mirror some time, specially if we have one of those devices with an AMOLED or super AMOLED screen. It's even more obvious that if your device has a front camera you don't need an app that works as a mirror, because you already have it.

This app only provides two things: written compliment messages, some of them as inspiring as "rate this app"; and a brightness slider that wrestles over with your device previous settings.

We'll always be keen on new developers who try to enlarge the Android community, but sometimes there are a lot of things to be improved on. Maybe adding a camera button or some kind of editing option, who knows... Let's hope that Weisser Software staff improve themselves and surprise us pleasantly next time.

Developer's original description available here
*** Support your Developers – Rate Their Applications!

Supported Devices:
Android 2.3 Front Facing Camera (FFC)
Android 2.2 Sprint & Motorola Front Facing Cameras (FFC)

The QuikMirror application utilizes the front camera on select devices to return the user's image to their screen. This application provides a convenient way to check out one's appearance when short a true mirror.

The mirror application has configurations to automatically increase the screen brightness to aid in dim lit conditions and offers a choice of unique frames that let you check yourself out in style. It even pays you a random compliment.

Permissions:

ACCESS NETWORK STATE – Ads (Free Version Only)
CHECK LICENSE – Android Licensing

This application has been tested on the HTC EVO 4G with OS 2.3. Because of the vast number of devices on the market, versions of OS, and second party applications, some issues may arise when attempting to run this application. Please forward any comments and suggestions to the developer. Be sure to include the phone type, OS version, and any custom ROM information. If you device isn’t supported, the application will attempt to utilize the rear camera by default.

Note: Difficulty in connecting to the Forward Facing Camera (FFC) could be due to another application having not properly released the camera, making it unavailable to other applications. If you suspect this is the cause, power off the phone and retry.

Note: Use of the brightness control feature requires the disabling of auto-brightness in the phone’s options.
