    Why would I want Private ME if I can use my front camera to see myself?

      Hi Lisa,

      private me is actually geared towards protecting your privacy. The mirror app is better than your built in camera because we have a front facing light so you can use it in darker areas. Also, it offers a very simple to use (a simple swipe of your finger) feature to black out things that you do not want in the picture. Therefore, you can anonymize yourself by blacking out your eyes, or black out some text on your t-shirt, tattoos, or the license plate of your car, then save it to your camera roll and share it without having to worry about sharing things in your picture that you do not want to share with the entire world. Also, none of the pictures will ever get saved to your camera roll unless you specifically wish to do so. Therefore, you can take a picture of a hard to reach place and keep taking pictures until you found the right angle and you never have to go back to your camera roll to delete all of those "missed shots".

      I hope this answers your question.
