    This New App Takes Your Selfie Game To A Whole New Level

    GIGA Selfie is the app that will take selfies like you've never seen. No selfie sticks required.

    Selfies have one thing in common: FACES, FACES, FACES.

    Which makes it hella challenging for travellers wanting and ~needing~ mementos of every second of their trip.

    Unless you have really long arms or the ever-controversial selfie stick.

    Well, this app called "GIGA Selfie" lets you take your token tourist snap easily.

    Tourism Australia

    Tourism Australia is set to launch the app as part of its "There's Nothing Like Australia" campaign.

    The free service starts with you standing on a GIGA Selfie platform. From there, you can trigger the fixed camera using the app. Your photo is then sent to you via email, where you can zoom in or out to your liking.
