There's a certain disgraced ex politician named Anthony Weiner who would probably still have his job if he had an application like Private ME on his iPhone. You might remember that Mr Weiner shared some rather racy photos with about 40,000 of his supporters last year. Now, if he had this photo self censoring application on his mobile he could have sent his pictures with his face obscured which might have protected both his dignity and his privacy. Now, that wasn't the only mistake Mr Weiner made that night and Private ME would have helped him there, too, because this app also contains another tool that prevents photos being sent by accident.
It seems that pretty well everyone has a mobile phone these days and many of them, of course, are fitted with cameras. It's just so easy to snap off a quick photo and send it off to your friends. But in today's society, and especially with the younger users that could be called Generation Y and the iGeneration, sexting has become rather a fad over the last few years. For those not sure of sexting (and that doesn't include Mr Weiner, unfortunately ) it is the sending of sexually explicit photos to 'friends' and partners. Most mobile devices are equipped with GPS, SMS, Email, browsers and social networking applications. While all of these features keep the user connected to the rest of the world, it does come at a price and that's the erosion of privacy. Private ME is bucking the trend and was designed from the ground up to be intrinsically private in order to lower the barrier to privacy. The Private ME mirror does exactly what it says - it keeps one's private moments private. Through its innovative features like the front facing dual intensity light which makes Private ME work in any lighting condition (and even in complete darkness -but we wont go there.) The blackout bars which allow a user to edit a picture with a simple touch of a finger makes Private ME more useful and versatile than traditional mirrors or any other mirror or camera app. So you can now admire yourself in front of the mirror and take a picture where no one will recognize you after covering your face with a quick swipe of the censorship bar. Just a quick touch up to your photo will cover up the tattoo you don't want your mom to. Private ME will never accidentally save the pictures on the camera roll or share those private moments with the world...unless, of course, you are looking for notoriety amongst the TMZ folks.
Private ME is almost like a fail safe for the sexting generation. It saves your embarrassment when you have photos to send where you don't want to be recognized or you want to cover up a certain part of your body. It also has a three step photo send operation which would have saved Mr Weiner's bacon if he had it on his iPhone before he posted off his Weiner-pics to 40,000 followers. At the moment, there is a half price deal on Private ME so you can now keep your private photos totally private.
