iPhone photo app Landcam

The new Landcam 1.1 update is out and includes a significant improvement, as well as adding a few new minor features. Usually, I’ll let my initial review sit for awhile, but the speed in which they are addressing both my public concerns and the private ones I’d mentioned to the developers before the app’s release deserves credit.

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.

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.

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.
