A toy camera app that emulates a 1980s Instamatic camera may not sound all that useful (go back to the ’80s? why?), but once you fire it up, you can easily see why Apple voted Hipstamatic the Best iPhone App of 2010. The developers of Hipstamatic, Synthetic Corp, have gone out of their way to make your iPhone feel like a real camera, right down to how you interact with the machine. Suffice it to say, it’s a very cool experience. Changing your camera’s “flash,” “film,” and “lens” settings changes the effects used on your photos.
The experience of using Hipstamatic and thinking about the interaction of film and flash are interesting, but what matters are the photos — and Hipstamatic adds a lot of visual flare to everything it captures. Photos immediately look vintage and different from anything your iPhone would normally create, placing Hipstamatic shots in a category all their own. The app comes with several different effects, and more are available as in-app purchases. If you’re ready to use your iPhone to capture moments in a truly memorable way, Hipstamatic is ready for you.
