Actually looks polaroid-like - kills Hipstamatic.

The images this app produces actually look like polaroid film, they have done an incredible job on the processing. The images are warm, punch, and truly analog looking. Unlike hipstamatic, this app doesn't just layer nasty artifacts over the image - compare a shot taken with this and one with hipstamatic, and the hipstamatic looks like crudely messed-with digital. This actually looks film-like - beautiful. The ability to just shoot with your normal iPhone camera and then convert later is great - otherwise you have to wait for the processing on each shot before taking another.

A couple of things that could be added - as many have commented, the ability to add a note on the bottom of the frame in a marker script would be great. Also, if you are taking the picture with the app (rather than iPhone cam app) it should show the square framing.

No other polaroid type app even comes close to the image quality on this - if you want juicy organic looking shots and not just 'tricked out' ones, get it!

First and favorite- only authentic polaroid app

I have been using this app since 2011 and it is still my favorite. I have tried other photo filters and always come back to shakeit! I just purchased the app for a new iphone 12 and have had no problem with it and think the 1.99 price s more than fair.
It does sometimes seem to go black when it develops a photo but when you go to photo app the photo is intact. Also if you want to control the placement in the frame shoot in square format or crop to the square you want. I used a real polaroid back in the day and the authentic feel is dead on in my opinion.
Plus- love the 'shake'

Like but could be better

I like this app a lot but I think that it would be better if it’s camera inter face was a Polaroid camera it would make that app better, and then I think it would feel more real.
