    There are other apps where the front facing camera is very handy, FaceTime, Skype....lots of photographic apps or apps like snapchat.

    Also great if you need a mirror! ;)

    I use it to take photos of myself at football games to send in to fan photo contests.

    It was never intended for more than showing video of the caller during FaceTime and other video calling apps, anything more is a bonus.

    Lol...ever since kaykaykay revealed her little tip of using it as a mirror...I have done the same!! Don't ever want to have a moment having spinach in your teeth or having any kind of style faux pas!!! Heaven forbid!! ;)

    Not quite a mirror but it seems the cosmetics industry is getting in on the act

    Well, grandparents w/ a dozen or more grandkids living in far away distant places would likely object to that statement! :D
