‘Selfie’ was Oxford Dictionaries’ word of the year in 2013, lending official credence to a craze that had sprung organically from bedrooms, bars and bus stops around the world. Apple’s App Store even featured ‘Selfies’ in a category of its own.

Now, oSnap for iPhone is looking to simplify something that was already pretty simple, with a gesture-centric app that lets you take a picture by tapping anywhere on the screen.

To say it’s devoid of features would be an understatement. However, if you’re looking for something that lets you switch to front-facing camera (selfie mode) by shaking your device, adjust the flash by swiping left, or access your gallery by swiping down, then you may be willing to pay $0.99 for this puppy.
