Ratings and Reviews
Terrific Customer Service!
I’ve been using and enjoying creating imagery with Hipstamatic since 2010, when I first discovered the app while leading a photo tour in Morocco. What originally drew me to the app was the look and feel it had like a separate and unique camera, and the unpredictability and fun of pairing the many different lenses and films. So I was very disappointed when I started experiencing continued crashing over the past months.
I first contacted Hipstamatic Support in early August and received an immediate reply from Allan. He asked a lot of questions and then, had me do a few tests, and also had me send him some diagnostic information, which he then passed on with a log I sent him, to Hipstamatic developer, Ryan, for investigation.
We communicated regularly over the next month, with Allan keeping me up to date on the progress they were making with the crashing issue. In late September, Allan wrote that they had an update to Hipstamatic that was in beta testing and told me that as soon as that new version was fully tested, it would be sent to Apple for approval. He said they hoped to have the update out soon. And now, with the update to Hipstamatic Version 352, it appears that this problem is solved!
Thank you, Allan, and the rest of the Hipstamatic team, for your hard work on my behalf..and for the many, many photographers who have been creating with this wonderful app for so long. I’m glad I was patient!

Thank you so much for your wonderful review. And thank you even more for all of your support over the years. So glad we were able to get that issue solved for you. Cheers! A
This app used to be the glitchiest app in the store. It made you wanna throw your phone at the wall. Use just one of the custom lenses and then switch to another one and the app would crash. I complained about it and the app replied to my review. They owned up to their problem and the app is completely fixed and better than ever. Months later and their ratings shot up. I had to come back and change my old review and I advise everyone else to do so.
NOW, and PLEASE listen Hipstamatic, this is just a personal request of mine but I feel it has potential. You guys have introduced so much filtering technology that the combinations and sheer abundance has become overwhelming. I now forget which combo does was and don’t have time to memorize the name of every lens and flash, and memorize what each one does. I have $50 worth of purchases and after months of using the app I still can’t pinpoint what does what. You guys need to sit down and innovate this feature. Figure out a way to order our gear more efficiently. My final complaint is that your lighthouse picture that demonstrates what each lens does doesn’t do any justice. It’s still kinda difficult to figure out a len’s potential when basing it off of the lighthouse.
Any who, overall this app is a hobby in itself and you’ll become indefinitely obsessed.

From a Joy to a Chore
I’ve been using Hipstamatic for years, invested in a lot of the filters and have had nothing but a five star experience up until a few months ago. It seems to coincide with the release of iOS 11 and more importantly iPhone X. Since then, my go-to app for genuinely terrific photography has crashed, frozen, failed to save, etc. If the developer keeps crash reports, there’s got to be a whole library by now just for me given the number of times this app has let me down and yet I keep coming back to it.
I can echo a lot of recent reviews by saying “Come in guys...”. I understand the desire to make the software compatible with the newest technology but if it is at the expense of the experience of loyal users who have invested a great deal of time and more than a little money on extras, you’re not doing your due diligence when it comes to addressing issues with ‘recent’ technology.
I’ve hoped after every of the last 5 or so updates that the bugs would be quashed, yet in many cases the experience is worse rather than better. I’m hanging in there guys but please reward my and others patience with a functional app before we find something that doesn’t consume half our time retracing our steps over and over.
