Five years ago there was no such word as selfie. In fact, the word was only introduced into the Oxford English Dictionary a couple of years back. However, it's now one of the most commonly used words in the western world and everyone knows exactly what it means. Now here's a fun little iOS app that uses the selfie to help you be social and to keep in touch with your close friends and family.

Selfie Request is a new, free and fun app that lets you communicate with close friends and find out exactly what they are doing and what they are thinking right at this very minute. It's a great way to see what your closest friends are up to with just a single tap. Just fire off a selfie to them and wait for them to reply. There is a slight catch though as they only have 99 seconds to reply with a selfie of their own as well as a short 30 character message. Friends can request your selfie and you can let them know where you are, what you're doing and what you're thinking - right at this moment.

Selfie Request is not like other social messaging sites where you can connect with hundreds or thousands of people all over the world. Instead, it is designed purely to be shared with only your very, very best friends. Those who you always want to be connected to and those who you are always happy to see no matter where you are or what you are doing. Its a great way to let friends know that you are thinking about them and that you want to connect with them right now. The only thing is, as i say, they only have 99 seconds to respond or your message will disappear into oblivion forever.

The thing about this app is that its all about the now. You'll be notified the moment that you receive a new selfie or a request for one of your own. But you'd better be quick in replying because it'll be gone if you don't reply to it in time. However, if your friend doesnt respond to the message, don't despair. Just send them another one. You can send as many as you like whenever you want. It's simple to use - just go to the 'send requests' page and tap a send icon to automatically send your request. When you receive a selfie request you can just tap the circle profile photo at the bottom of your screen. This profile photo shows you the friend who sent you a request. Your Selfie will automatically be sent to the person who sent it to you.

Right now, someone in the world is thinking about you, so why not get them involved and send them a selfie request? As you probably know, there are literally millions of selfies being taken and shared around the world every day so why not reach out to a friend right now? At the moment Selfie Request is only available for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch but there's an Android version coming real soon. The app is available in all the obvious countries around the world and includes places as diverse as Australia, Israel, Poland and Russia as well as the UK and the US.
