UPDATE 02.03.12 @10:30 CST: After yesterday’s App Store glitches, I followed both app discounts and they remained free all night long. I felt confident in posting this discount that any issues were resolved. Right after this post went live, the prices of both apps went back up to $1.99 and the mention of the discount was removed from the App Store description. This may be another glitch (It’s rare, but I’ve seen this before with other developers). I’ve contacted MorokoshiMan to see if they’re aware of this and to see what’s up. I’ll keep you posted. =M=

UPDATE 02.03.12 @10:40 CST: The apps are again free in the App Store. =M=

The three toy camera apps from MorokoshiMan, PICtone, INStan Pocket and CAMERAtan are FREE right now in the App Store for the next day or so. Each app is $1.99, so this is a total savings of about $4. This is s a great freebie.

The App Store description says until February 5, but because of recent glitches and timezone differences, don’t wait until the last minute — grab these now.

The three apps apply toy camera effects to your photos, but do it differently. CAMERAtan and PICtone support full 8 MP output of an iPhone 4S. CAMERAtan and PICtone are old iPhone friendly and will still work on any iPhone.

CAMERAtan has over 40 oddly-named, one-click toy camera effects, including Toy Storm, IcePenguin, Aurora, GoldLeaf and others. It also supports Photo App Link for sending directly to other PAL-enabled apps for further processing. There’s a Random button as well.

CAMERAtan is normally $1.99. Requirements: Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.Requires iOS 4.3 or later.

PICtone is more conventional in its interface and processing and helps to create retro analog effects and plastic toy camera aberrations. Effects are more user controllable. You can change the cross-process, add vignettes and light leaks to create retro-looking pics.

PICtone is normally $1.99 also. Requirements: Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.Requires iOS 3.0 or later

INStan Pocket is another toy camera app that creates analog effects. Unlike the the other two apps, this one uses a camera interface. Also, resolution tops out at 1200×840 pixels. It’s good for sharing online to Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, and Tumblr.

Requirements: Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.Requires iOS 4.3 or later.
