Grain Cam is the place to bring back all the nostalgia of the 90's and more. With a touch of grain and flared timestamp, make all your photos an instant classic!

Don't worry about paying those expensive prices for developing film. We have a solution for you! Grain Cam is available and easy to use.

We all remember the time before digital cameras existed, we use to capture the moment with our point & shoot film cameras. Do you remember how the photos were grainy and had that nostalgic timestamp on the bottom right corner? Well, it's no longer of the past.

No “no filter” option

I needed this app to put a Polaroid style custom date on one of my photos, and was very happy that this was something the app could achieve, however,

I personally don’t want any of the app’s filter options on this photo, and through about 10 minutes of trial and error I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s impossible to leave my photo neutral with no filter after putting a date on it. The filters may have their place, but they greatly distort what I’d like my photo to look like and leave the image dark and shadowy, almost unrecognizable. The dates and the grain options work great but I’m really disappointed I can’t take any of the filters off and there’s no “original” or “no filter” options.

Developer Response ,

Actually, this is doable. On camera mode, select the “C” color filter then slide the top two adjustments (grain/fade) sliders to the far left. This will give you no filter and just the timestamp.

It’s the same in Library mode, but you have to turn off (slide to far left) the Grain and Fade adjustments sliders.

If you have my issues please contact us at

I love this app. I redone loaded it and it now allows you to upload your own photos. The one problem I’m having is where the date is.... it’s putting the date I use this app. I wish I can select the date I want it to say. Please see if you can do that!

Developer Response ,

We’re glad you like photo gallery/library feature. We’re working on the custom date for one of our next releases. We appreciate the support!

Please add photo and vid import.

Please add photo and gallery import. I can see that yal are putting adds on the app to get money funds to build more updates features and improvements to the app. I hope that yal next update we’ll be the vid and photo import.
