I really like Cameramatic by youthhr. Itâ€™s a retro-style square format app that’s often overshadowed by other, more high-profile apps, but it’s got a great set of filters as well as great in-app customizability that allows you to create your own filters. Cool!
The new 1.2.3 update was just released. Although it’s a 1.x.x update, it’s more than just a maintenance or bug fix update. It has new filters and features.
I’ve previously reviewed a lot of Cameramatic’s new features here.
Here’s what’s new in the 1.2.3 update:
>>> 3 new filters
- Retro Pop
- Silverchrome (part of the B&W in-app purchase)
- Limechrome (part of the B&W in-app purchase)
>>> The former filter “B&W Smoky” is now the more aptly named “B&W Expired Film”
>>> 2 new frames
- Black 05, a film-style thin border
- Rough 01
>>> 2 new light leak styles
The Photo Album button is now gone from the Camera interface. To import photos into Cameramatic, the photo album button is now in the app’s built-in Light Box. It’s a bit of a change in the workflow and a little cumbersome at first. Cameramatic now also supports the front-facing cameras in devices that have one.
If you donâ€™t already have Cameramatic, I highly recommend it. It’s a great square-frame alternative for retro-camera app enthusiasts.
Cameramatic is available for $1.99 in the App Store. Itâ€™s compatible with iPhone, iPod touch (4th generation), iPad 2 Wi-Fi, and iPad 2 Wi-Fi + 3G. Requires iOS 4.0 or later.
