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.
Polamatic 2.3 has just been released. It fixes all of the image orientation problems found in the previous two updates.If you don’t already have this great lo-fi app, read on. We’ve got a bunch of promo codes to away this weekend.
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.
Polamatic brings back the instant nostalgia of Polaroid pictures to your iPhone or iPod Touch. It is one of the more authentic-looking digital recreations of an old, square Polaroid SX-70 print. Polamatic has a number of great features that I really like, but still has enough problems to keep me from giving it an enthusiastic recommendation.

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.
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.
One of the two new gizmos this year that I find really intriguing is Polaroid’s new venture into instant digital photography, the SC1630. It’s basically a Polaroid-branded digital camera with an Android-based smartphone.
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.
Photo 55 is an app that recreates the look of the classic Polaroid Type 55 film. Although not the Polaroid effect most users think of, it’s a classic photo look and for the most part, Photo 55 does a good job of recreating it.
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.
I know Marty hates rumors, but there’s evidence in the official ShakeItPhoto Facebook page and the Flickr Stream of Banana Camera Co’s Alexia Brown to support this. The latest update to popular instant camera app ShakeItPhoto, which is currently awaiting Apple approval, will feature a revised border much more reminiscent of the traditional Polaroid border.
Unlike ShakeItPhoto’s current border, it appears the new border features a much larger bottom area, reminiscent of what you’d get right out of a good old SX-70 (I’m thinking LabelBox might get some solid mileage out of this change in my own photography, I can’t resist the opportunity for a sassy aside). If you take a close look at the bottom area, though, there’s a noticeable line right about where the older border would have ended, which makes me wonder if the new one was simply clone-stamped into new dimensions.
