I first stumbled upon it while perusing uber mom-blog Dooce, and admired Heather Armstrong’s photos thinking they were taken with some fancy pants camera. But then when I found out it was an iPhone application, I definitely had to check it out.
This super cool iPhone photography app adds a filter to make your pics look like they were taken with one of those awesome old plastic cameras. For $1.99 you get three lens types, a choice of films, and two flashes, all of which you can play around with quite easily–even if you usually need a map and personal instructor just to use a point n’ shoot camera. You can always add additional packages for $.99 if you find yourself addicted. And you will.In other words, for about $5, you can get every component to the application, and pretty much turn every iPhone snapshot into something worth saving.
What I love most is that it completely eliminates any issues with blurriness that you might get with the iPhone camera, which is nice when there’s just no way to take a picture of your kids three times in a row to get it right. Awesome. -Kristen
