Return to Power

I came back to Hipsta after a break of a few years, having upgraded to a iphone 8 and better camera tech. Bought Hipsta X and Classic again and its great to see its as versatile and as powerfully engaging as ever. The X version is great fun for casual art shots and classic, with its huge catalogue of paks is perfect for extended projects. The built in editing suite makes the whole process a one app deal, meaning I don’t need to flip from a dedicated edit app back to Hipsta to make changes. Its a complex little proframme, so a few queries arose, but customer support is friendly, professional and super fast in response, making the whole experience flawless and enjoyable. I wouldn’t go back to any other gimmicky app now, as the two Hipstamatic apps, the massive kit catalogue and the rock solid support network make the choice a no-brainer!

As good as ever

I used to use Hipstamatic a long time ago then parted ways to try just about every other editing app on the App Store. Many years later, I’ve downloaded the app again and have fell in love with it once more. It’s truly unique and the results you can achieve are amazing. I’m now armed with some fresh new hipsta paks and my photos are looking better than ever. I’d love to see them bring out a black and white in the styles of 1960’s provoke magazine Japanese photography. That’d be awesome. Also a redscale film similar to that made by Lomography would be great. Overall, far cheaper to use than my Diana film camera and easily as good.

Problem solved

I changed my Apple password some time ago and then forgot the original one which I had used when I first bought Hipstamatic . This meant I couldn’t buy any new Paks for my great Hipstamatic collection. I backed up my Hipstamatic pictures, deleted the app and then bought it again foolishly hoping I would be able easily able to reload my Pak collection. Of course , the original problem remained. However, help was at hand and I am very indebted to Allan at Hipstamatic who reinstated my original Paks and my list of Favourites. I can now add new Paks and continue to enjoy this terrific app.
