The older we get, it's less likely that all of our friends will be in the same 10-mile radius as they once were. We rely on social media, texting, and video chats to keep in touch with people around the world.
Similar to a private messaging app, you can invite and add friends to your contact list. Take a selfie within in the dotted-line guide and send a Unifie request to a friend. They can accept your request, take their own selfie, and Unifie will put the two photos together.
It works like a basic version of Adobe Photoshop (Windows, Mac). Unifie will cut around the second photo to add it to yours. The images it generates probably won't look as good as the ones advertised unless you've got spot on lighting and a pose just right.
It could be fun to have photos with friends that you might never get to meet in person or rarely get to see.
Unifie could be especially valuable to people whose families live overseas. Sometimes students study abroad and their parents can be at important events like graduation. Unifie could provide a way for families to create a cherished memento.
The app also supports video chats where you can take selfies in the video. You can also chat in text with Unifie's messaging feature.
Unifie works like social media, so your contacts can see what you've uploaded. The app only supports individually taken selfies for now, but plans to add a group feature in the future.
