do you remember hipstamatic?

i think it was early 2010 when i first started using hipstamatic. it came along before instagram and i loved the different filters and frames you can create by changing up the film and lens right within the app. it was a fun application, but after instagram came around, i all but had forgotten about this gem. i just recently redownloaded the app and have been playing around with it for a couple of days and i couldn't be happier with it. most of the apps on my phone are photo related and hipstamatic has found its place again on my phone. yay.

have you ever tried hipstamatic? 

ps - other iphone photo apps i love {list is a little outdated but most are still relevant}

  5. I use Oogl - the social platform for Hipstamatic. It has all the lens/film options of the original but allows for editing. My favorite by far!

  7. I am always late with trends and tech after all this time. There are so many photo apps out there I am amazed that Instagram stands out among the rest and beat the rest.

    1. i think instagram was able to connect to the sharing aspect of it quite early on! but i love using other photo apps that give you different feels and filters, but i do use instagram for my main sharing platform!

  8. I've heard of hipstamatic but have never tried it. I'm just too married to taking photos with a traditional camera. I'm not even on instagram.

  14. I remember using Hipstamatic on my first smartphone, since it was one of the only cool photo apps available for Android at the time. But, since I seldom use my phone to take pictures, I don't really use photo apps any more.

  16. YES! It was one of the first apps I downloaded as soon as I got an ipod touch (Late 2009). This was the first ipod I ever owned and the first with the camera. I didn't have a smartphone back then so wifi access + camera + in-app editing was a big deal.

    1. it is! i also read a crazy article a few years back where newspaper companies were letting go of their photographers and teaching their reporters to take pictures for their articles using their phones. so neat and unfortunate all rolled up in one!

  19. Haha I do remember Hipstamatic but by the time I got an iPhone myself the Instagram train had taken off! Maybe Hipstamatic will make a comeback.

  22. Hahaha, we also played with Hipstamatic but as soon as Instagram went on we kind of cheat on them :P I remember discussions with friends with those firmly sticking to Hipstamatic and the ones with Instagram. I guess both can have their own place in the phone after all ;)

  23. I remember Hipsamatic! I used it when it first came out on the iPhone, but I didn't like that they charged you for most of the filters.

  24. I've never used Hipstamatic but I think the unique thing about it is that you have to choose the settings before you snap, where as in IG you take the photo first and then apply a filter. Looks like fun!

  25. I've heard of hipstamatic but hasn't used it before. I realised that there's so many apps out there. Sometimes, it's hard to choose the best. I think they all have their advantages.
