It seems the best time to expect a Hipstamatic update is a Friday or when it’s generally least convenient.

Hipstamatic 265 was just released, as was Oggl version 1.1.2. No new lenses or films, but with these updates, you can now share your previously purchased Hipstamatic films and lenses with your copy of Oggl. I’ve been waiting for this! >>>

Importing Hipstamatic film & lenses into Oggl

When Oggl (now called Hipstamatic Oggl) hit the App Store a few months ago, it gave Hipsta users the ability to change effects after shooting. This was one of the features we’d been clamoring for years. In Oggl, there was a hook to share access all of your previously purchased HipstaPaks, but it hasn’t worked until now. Oggl users were forced to pony up $10 a year for access to the complete gear arsenal or simply shoot with a limited selection of Oggl gear.

I like Oggl and its ability to change effects after shooting, but I still love Hipstamatic. Between the two, that’s the app I shoot with more. To me, it’s the closest recreation of the analog shooting experience available in the App Store. It gives me the choice between knowing my equipment to get a shot — “film” and “lens” qualities — and simply shaking the whole thing up for a random combination and discovering happy accidents.

This new update should please Oggl users who have a large investment in HipstaPaks.

You’ll need to update both apps on your iPhone. Hipstamatic Oggl is a free download.

Just an FYI, if you were one of the first to download the Silver Lake HipstaPak, updating to Hipstamatic 265 does not change the name of your Abbie Lens to the renamed Mabel Lens. A pleasant surprise!
