Hands down, my favorite app is Hipstamatic. I love Instagram for its sharing ability, but nothing produces such dreamy pictures as Hipstamatic. If you're looking for a way to give your photos a vintage vibe, then I highly recommend paying the $1.99 price tag. It's worth it.
App Name: Hipstamatic
Description: Digital photography never looked so analog. Make and share beautiful photography with Hipstamatic.
Available: iPhone only (sorry Androiders)
Review: I've taken pictures of the same thing, once with my phone's regular camera and then with Hipstamatic. The app just applies a beautiful hue over everything and makes even pictures of trees seem more interesting.
The app comes with a stock of different lenses and film types that each offer a unique quality. For the pictures taken with the app below, I used the camera lens "Jane "and the film " Ina's 1969". Sometimes I don't want to go through the effort of picking which filter I want to apply to my photo, so this app is nice since it does it for you.
Once you take the picture, it goes to "processing", which does take a little bit longer than it should, and then you instantly have a cool, vintage looking photo with a worn border.
Which ones do you like better? (even though my niece looks adorable in any kind of photo:) The ones on the right were taken with Hipstamatic and have a nice warm glow and depth to them that I feel is lacking in the regular camera photos.
