Photo App Review: Instant – A Solid New Polaroid App

January 9, 2013 – 11:04 am | Edit Post

New Polaroid app Instant is a great throwback to not only a classic era in analog photography, but a solid photo app that successfully recreates the classic “instant photo” experience for iPhone. Here’s my hands-on review.

The Polamatic 2.1 update is out. It fixes several bugs I’d mentioned in my earlier review, but adds one, very critical bug. If you purchased the app, I suggest you hold off installing this update. If you already have, this blog post has instructions on how you can “downgrade” to a previous version of a app on your iPhone or iPad.

Photo App Focus: PolarCam – Instant Retro Camera

February 23, 2012 – 8:11 am | Edit Post

There are a lot of fauxlaroid apps and photo apps with instant camera effects. Some of them emulate instant photos better than others. New photo app PolarCam tries to, but just misses the mark for me in capturing that visceral magic of classic instant cameras.

ClassicINSTA Gets an Update and Makeover

The ClassicINSTA 7.0.0 update was just released. In it, the app gets a makeover and a few new features. The update is on sale now for a limited time for only $0.99. It’s a good deal for one of the better instant toy camera apps in the App Store.

Polarock is back. Let me save you a dollar. Avoid Polarock. It’s a Polaroid instant photo style app with several filters, but there’s so much wrong with it, Polarock was horrible even when photo apps were brand new.

ShakeItPhoto Updated. Now With Real Polaroid Border!

April 20, 2011 – 12:21 pm | Edit Post

One of the things that I love about ShakeItPhoto is the way it alters the colors of the photo. It doesn’t accurately recreate the tones of old Polaorid images. In reality, they’re often flat and washed out. ShakeItPhoto recreates the way we remember old Polaroid photos. And that, to me, is part of its magic.

ShakeItPhoto was updated today. The 2.0 update has one new feature — a real Polaroid SX-70 border.

App Store Review: Colaroid Cam PRO. Useless.

January 6, 2011 – 2:58 pm | Edit Post

There’s nothing “pro” about this app. Colaroid Cam PRO isn’t a good fauxlaroid app. Because of the super-super-low resolution, it isn’t even a good photo app.

New Polaroid Digital Camera App – impressive in scope, disappoints in delivery

December 17, 2010 – 2:32 pm | Edit Post

Polaroid Digital Camera App is impressive in scope but fails in many ways to deliver an accurate, or even emotional Polaroid experience.
