Leme Camera is back with yet another revision, but unlike the update that prompted Marty to give them a justified smackdown last spring (while I lambasted it elsewhere) this update is a decided improvement that brought Leme Camera back onto my dock.
And I don’t mean that in a positive light. At this point, I just want them to stop trying to fix LomoLomo or Leme Camera and let the damned thing fade away. I really didn’t want to talk about the app any longer, but this is a story that keeps on giving…. LomoLomo Pro has finally been “updated”. It’s now Leme Camera-Easter Version. Stay away. Learn to live with the annoying “You have 1 app to update badge”. Or just finally delete the app and move on.
The app formerly known as LomoLomo has been renamed. Again. After a brief stint as LemeLeme HD, the app is now called Leme Camera. This week, anyway. All cameras and lenses in Leme Camera are now free, which is bound to make some users happy, but will hack others off.
LomoLomo is gone from the App Store. The free version has been replaced with the newly named LemeLemeHD. Read this before upgrading. In addition to a new nonsense name, the update’s changes are lame lame.
With 11 “lens” effects and 6 different frames, LomoLomo may not have the largest set of photo effects in the App Store, but the analog film-style effects it has are lush and nicely done. We’ve created a high resolution effects grid of all the LomoLomo lens effects and all of the frames of the latest version 1.2.1.
The LomoLomo App Store description beats you over the head with “Don’t Think. Just Shoot.” which is a good mantra for iPhoneographers to have. If you’ve already purchased LomoLomo Pro, recent updates have addressed many of the usability issues of the app and it’s worth a revisit. It’s now pretty good and the developer seems to push out more improvements on a steady basis. If you only downloaded the free LomoLomo, dropping a buck for the Pro version will get you more of the app’s great films.
There are a ton of Lomography apps in the App Store. Nearly all of the biggies are as good as or better at recreating the LOMO experience digitally. Nearly all do it far less expensively than the LomoLomo apps.
