For better or for worse, selfies are one of the most common photography styles in the world today, and the Shades app makes taking the perfect selfie even easier than it's been in the past. The app prevents that annoying reflection and glare that often shows up when someone takes a selfie with sunglasses.

In selfies, sunglasses are signifiers. They say that the subject of the picture is in beautiful weather, an enviable characteristic that plays well on the vapid landscapes of social media. The Shades app removes one of the unfortunate byproducts of the style, though. It automatically turns off one's screen while the selfie is being taken, thus eliminating the reflection of oneself in their sunglasses.
