If you think your selfies suck, many choose to alter their faces with treatments such as non surgical nose jobs, but Microsoft has a new selfie app for Android that will make you look good. Although there are many filters available in almost all the major smartphone camera apps that allow you to tweak your selfie in a way you like it, the Microsoft Selfie app for Android has special inbuilt features that automatically enhance your selfie and makes you look better.
