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.
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.
ShakeItPhoto 1.4 was released today. The good news is that the classic ShakeItPhoto look is back. The bad news is that the classic ShakeItPhoto look is back.
Right now, there are several cool photo apps on sale in the App Store. This is probably the largest bunch of major apps on sale at the same time that I’ve ever seen.
Polaroid Digital Camera App is impressive in scope but fails in many ways to deliver an accurate, or even emotional Polaroid experience.
ClassicINSTA 4.1.0 has hit the App Store. This excellent fauxlaroid app gets a revamped user interface, a colorful new icon, integrated Facebook sharing and better performance in this update.
Polaroid Instant Cam is back with the new 1.2 update. All the problems with the app have been fixed. Pente Group have exceeded expectations and the app is deserving of its name.
Within hours of the release of the version 1.2 update, Polaroid Instant Cam, the app we just gave a glowing review to, has disappeared from the App Store and isn’t available at this time.
InstantCam is a new Polaroid app that’s actually licensed by the Polaroid holding company. I thought this would be a cool app, but there are many reasons to stay away from this app at the moment.
Some random additional thoughts I had for my earlier post on printing and enlarging iPhone photos. They didn’t seem to fit smoothly in context in the earlier post, so here they all get their own bullet points in a random musing.
ClassicINSTA and ClassicTOY photo apps from misskiwi have received great updates. Now, all four of the ClassicCAM apps are iOS4 and iPhone 4 compatible.
