Like it or not, the act of taking a photo "selfie" has become a prominent part of the digital age. Oxford Dictionaries made selfie its 2013 word of the year, and even President Obama has been caught with his arm outstretched taking a photo with a smartphone. Since the selfie phenomenon isn't going anywhere, why not make it even easier?

The free CamMe app for iOS lets you prop up your phone and take a picture of you or a group of friends up to 16 feet away. Simply raise your hand and close it into a fist to activate the camera, and it snaps away. Take a few photos in a row with the PhotoBooth option and share your favorites to social networks.

Download the app from the iTunes App Store.
