I discovered this week the ultimate reason for a front-facing camera. No, it wasn’t for a Skype call, or Facetime, or to take a profile picture for a website. See, I was sitting at my desk, eating an everything bagel for lunch, when I had a business associate drop in unexpectedly. Great, except I’d just been eating a bagel full of seeds, and I didn’t want to embarrass myself with a big old poppy seed in my teeth. And the bathrooms in my office are in the hallway past the lobby, so I couldn’t escape to check.
My solution? I fired up my iPhone camera, switched to front view, checked to make sure I was presentable, and then had a successful meeting. If the iPhone could dispense breath mints it would be the perfect business companion!
Have you come up with a creative way to use the iPhone camera? Let us know in the comments!
