OnePlus doesn’t exactly have the best reputation in the Android community anymore, but that’s apparently not doing anything to slow the company down. Just yesterday the company made the OnePlus X official, and now they’re releasing a completely unrelated app (or maybe somewhat related, considering the photos form an “X” after they’re taken?). Reflexion is a neat take on an app that captures one image that shows both yourself and a glimpse of the world around you…

As you can see in the image above (which is a pretty decent example of the kind of photos you can take with Reflexion), the idea is that you take two pictures, both being reflected across the X and Y axes to create a photo that could actually turn out pretty cool — depending on how exciting your life is. The first photo uses the front camera, and the second uses the rear camera, and after each photo has been taken, you can move them around until they look the way you’d like.

There are plenty of apps that would let you make images like these, but this is the first I’ve seen that does these kinds of images as its sole purpose. If you really like these kinds of photos, which OnePlus says let you “express your personality”, there’s no easier way to make them than to grab this app and tap a few buttons. But if you’re like me in that you can’t see yourself using this on a regular basis, it’s probably just going to take up space on your home screen and go unused.

You can grab Reflexion on the Play Store for free, and interestingly, it’s available for iOS as well.
