Easy to use - needs some tweaks but a promising start
Hipstamatic is the stand out camera app on my iPhone but the scale of films / filters etc was getting a bit out of hand. I spent far too long fiddling about looking for appropriate effects
The advantage with this app is that it has an easy to use auto mode, where the app selects an appropriate effect for a photo you take from the app. If you want a different effect, there is an edit mode where you can easily choose an alternative.
I’ve spent a few quid over the years on the original Hipstamatic app, so decided to splash out on the Lifetime membership special deal offer £24 that apparently guarantees future paks and stuff.
In the current version of the app, there doesn’t seem to be a facility of picking a photo from your library. Also you can’t use your Hipstamatic X Lifetime membership to unlock all the filters and effects on the original app. I contacted the support people who confirmed there would be updates on the feedback they’ve had since the HX app launched. And likely it would include the functionality to edit from the camera roll and they’d be looking at extending membership benefits to the original app.
Whilst not perfect, it’s a promising start and the support people do listen to feedback and work hard to give customers what they want. That’s what made the original app so popular.
So it’s a 4 star review for now (the output is fantastic) and likely to be 5 if they improve the functionality
Superbly retro and useable
As a big fan of the original Hipstamatic, a new version was very welcome. The streamlined interface makes for much quicker operation and from the him shooting, albeit with less control over add ons. However, the built in cameras are excellent and varied, with the surprise addition of an unlockable ‘secret camera’, which was a welcome bonus. Customer service is very responsive and thorough, even for daft questions like mine and the community spirit of the original is very much a part of the scene. My only reservation is the subscription access, which seems excessive, especially offering ‘lifetime membership’ for a new app, which isn’t greatly dissimilar to the original. There doesn’t really be enough to it to warrant a hefty fee, when you can but the full version for a few pounds and cherry pick the add on elements for a few more. But overall, for a free app its a delight.
I was one of the original users of Hipstamatic classic and I regularly bought camera kits from them. I decided to give the new one a go as it stated my purchases would be restored, this is not strictly true. I clicked the restore option and was given less than a handful of available kits and the pinhole I had preciously bought kept prompting me to join the club to use at a monthly fee. Almost none of my original purchases were restored and I’ve since deleted the app. If your new to Hipstamatic this is great you have no lost purchases to worry about but otherwise this is simply a move towards subscription based service as opposed to pay per kit release. Its a greedy move and wrong to make early adopters pay again for kits that kept them in business. I have since gone back to the classic app and my original paid for kits without subscription.
