When it comes to iPhone photo apps, the two biggest players are without a doubt Instagram and Hipstamatic. After launching in 2009, Hipstamatic brought retro, analog photography back with multiple lenses and social connectivity. The only drawback was having to pay for each lens - and that’s where Instagram entered. Free, fast and fun, Instagram built a social network within the app, and has since dominated the market.
But the team at Hipstamatic have released a new app to keep their offering fresh. The Hipstamatic-D series (D for Disposable) is a truly social camera. Sharing a roll of 24 photos, you and your friends can capture different shots of the same party, road trip, concert - any social event you can think of. And, like an old school camera, you won’t see the photos until it’s finished. While we’re dedicated fans of Instagram, we have to admit this take on social photography is quite unique.
So, the question now is: who will you share your photos with?
