Hipstamatic Reviews

Lisa Lefebvre

Solid 5 star review with one request  Lisa Lefebvre  5 star

Thank you for soldiering on with this app. I was introduced to it by Denmark’s most celebrated photo journalist, who raves about it. I’ve been In love ever since. The only suggestion I have, along with at least one other reviewer, is that there is a feature overload. Make some choices for us and/or make it easier to navigate. I trust your aesthetic and would use the app more often if I didn’t get overwhelmed so much. With this said, I love the app and it deserves a full five stars. Screw Instagram.


Crash city  lametunes  1 star

Loved this app for years have lots of money in packs and filters and films, lenses etc. Latest update now app crashes at startup, can’t see anything in the app at all, now my money and the app are rendered useless


Amazing App for Amateurs and Pros alike!!  TravPerk  5 star

I’m an amateur you photographer to the max, but Hipstamatic has helped me take photographer level pictures!!! I’ve used this app for family pictures and then edited them in the app. I also use VSCO, and I will only ever use those two. Thank you Hipstamatic for existing and making this photography fan be able to take pro level photos!! I own all the packs!!

Papa Viddy Well

Fun and creative app!  Papa Viddy Well  5 star

Been a fan since day one! Turns picture taking into an artistic endeavor. You’ll find yourself enjoying all the filters and lens, experimenting and creating true works of art! It’s not just click and go, you can turn a simple photo into a pic you’ll want to frame and hang in your living room. It’s great!


Continuously Crashing!  Ziggymay  1 star

Worthless. After sinking who knows how much money into this app over the years, it doesn't even work for me anymore. I get an error that the image didn't render and the pic can't be saved. VERY DISAPPOINTING!!!!! Updated 1/9/19: This app could be a lot better than it is, especially when it comes to the Christmas items. Those should be available to purchase during Christmas (not a year later in a pack). Having to trade and swap is annoying because I and I’m sure many others don’t know anyone else who uses the app. If we wanted a social photo app we’d use Instagram or something similar; forced interaction to get lenses and films weakens the app a great deal and makes it unappealing.


Amazing!  mvmv2014  5 star

I’ve been a photographer for many years and have faithfully stuck by my Nikon the whole time. This app has changed all of that for me! So many possibilities! I’ve bought so many paks that I think it’s become an obsession! All of them are high quality. To top everything off, their customer service is amazing! Thanks!

Dorothy Sebastian

The best and most fun camera app!  Dorothy Sebastian  5 star

How can I count the number of ways in which this app is awesome? The infinite number of ways to customize photos? All the super duper (and reasonably priced) Hipsta paks from which to choose? The nifty Xmas freebies? The efficient and fabulous support team (thanks, Allan!)? Now that the glitches of a month or so ago have been solved, this app is perfect again. It’s my go-to and will be forever.

Innovative Suggestions  Alexander J. Hovanec  4 star

This app used to be the glitchiest app in the store. It made you wanna throw your phone at the wall. Use just one of the custom lenses and then switch to another one and the app would crash. I complained about it and the app replied to my review. They owned up to their problem and the app is completely fixed and better than ever. Months later and their ratings shot up. I had to come back and change my old review and I advise everyone else to do so. NOW, and PLEASE listen Hipstamatic, this is just a personal request of mine but I feel it has potential. You guys have introduced so much filtering technology that the combinations and sheer abundance has become overwhelming. I now forget which combo does was and don’t have time to memorize the name of every lens and flash, and memorize what each one does. I have $50 worth of purchases and after months of using the app I still can’t pinpoint what does what. You guys need to sit down and innovate this feature. Figure out a way to order our gear more efficiently. My final complaint is that your lighthouse picture that demonstrates what each lens does doesn’t do any justice. It’s still kinda difficult to figure out a len’s potential when basing it off of the lighthouse. Any who, overall this app is a hobby in itself and you’ll become indefinitely obsessed.


I’ve been using this app since...  mjoeparker  5 star

Before the Dali pak was first available and I love it. I enjoy the insane amount of options they have added. But most of all, I love their support. Allen is the best(cheers,;)). He has helped me with many any issue. I still wish they would bring back the original disposable version. That was my absolute favorite app ever. Allen helped console me through my abandonment issues. You’ll know it’s him, because of the “cheers”. For some reason that instantly “cheers” me up. He definitely keeps me here. Thank you Hipstamatic team, especially you Allen.


My favorite photo app  jobro1356  2 star

However it’s also the one I have the most problems with. I’ve had this app for quite a few years , long before there was a pro version. I used to shoot way more more with it. I still buy every pack and new lens combo. Even with today’s update I still can’t post from the app to Facebook , Twitter or Instagram directly from the app. Nor can I edit any raw photos shot in hipstamatic or any other app including my moment app which shoots in raw. I don’t understand why. ProCamera and camera plus I can post to anything. I’m going to stop using this till it actually works.

Play Forest

After all the years, still great  Play Forest  5 star

I started using Hipstamatic when it first came out and have been dipping in and out ever since. Recently I came back to it for a project I am playing with and with all the improvements they have been rolling out (and the jump in the iPhone camera since the 4), Hipstamatic is fast becoming my go to when I am looking for something more than a quick snap; and the ability to post edit any photo you take has to be one of my favourite features. Yea, Hipstamatic is still as cool as the first time I used it! A big shout out to Allan in support for some of the best support I have seen.


Crashes  Khonsu16  3 star

I’m trying to turn on flashes/film that have been turned off somehow (I have a new phone) and it crashes every single time. It’s irritating.


Still in love  Alice0705aus  5 star

I was a big user in the early days but not in the past few years. I have recently started using again and have rediscovered how much I enjoy it. Sometimes it crashes but no big deal - I just close the app, and occasionally I have to restart my iPhone. And a shout out to Allan at Hipstamatic support for all the help he gave me to reset my account. Very quick and clear. Yep, still very much in love.


Still keeps crashing after all these years...  fLYINGzuCCHini  3 star

Adding packs, changing film, restoring purchase, you name it.... Random. But constant.


Awesome app  Yoloswaggekejshwgwfw  5 star

Love this app, it’s my fave! A fun way to experiment with photos and tap into your creative side. Any issues are quickly resolved with a simple email. Highly recommend


Crashes After Shooting  Missxstatic  3 star

This has always been a good app and I’ve hardly ever had any problems with it. But today, the app not only crashed (took an image and it crashed immediately, which happened each time), it removed some of the settings I had created (removing what I didn’t want and adding what I wanted) and the new favourites (that I had made prior to taking the snap) didn’t save. It probably wouldn’t be so bad if this didn’t happen, then it’d be worth the constant money raking.


Awesome  jlinden  5 star

‘Nuff said.

Mousey Tung

Excellent App  Mousey Tung  5 star

Everyone has a smartphone with almost all the time. With Hipstamatic you now have a cool and fun way to capture pictures. The whole App costs the same as a big coffee as do the bundles. Very affordable for a lot of photo fun.


How is this 5 star?  Agathosune  1 star

All of the reviews are 7 years old. Do not buy this app. I paid $5.99 for this app in a bundle. 6 bucks gets you pretty much nothing and most of the decent looking filters and effects need to be paid for additionally. $1.49 PER lens and film? What am I paying $5.99 for? That’s not what you expect when you pay for $5.99 for an app. Apparently REFUNDS ARE NOT ALLOWED EITHER. DO NOT BUY THIS APP.

Crashes Constantly  Thia A  1 star

I have invested money on filters and I am unable to use the app. It crashes each time I load a photo. Please resolve the problem or grant refunds to those of us with this issue. Upon browsing the reviews, it is apparent that this is an issue, but you seem to have failed to resolve or even mention it in the most recent upgrades. Very disappointing!


Fun  cconville  5 star

Love it


Best Customer Service  seung92  5 star

I have been using Hipstamatic since it first released in the Appstore, and have been an avid user and fan of the app. Recently, I had to replace my iPhone because of some issues and had to redownload all my apps. Pain in the butt lol. When I redownloaded Hipstamatic, I was unfortunately unable to restore all of my purchased lens/films/flash/case - which was worth TONS of money from purchasing since 2009. I contacted the support by email, and was immediately helped out by a wonderful man named, Allan. After some troubleshooting with him, I was still unable to restore. Allan then kindly restored ALL of my kits for me, so I wouldn’t have to repurchase everything again. He was super friendly, very responsive and helpful. I will definitely continue to support Hipstamatic!


Not the five stars it used to be.  Jsnrdrck  1 star

Not the five stars it used to be. There’s just nothing more really to say.


I’m spent a ton on this app.  Edchism19  1 star

How about fixing the app so it’s works. I’ll spend my money elsewhere soon.


Don’t Buy  WWaz74  1 star

Every time I open a picture it shuts down. Biggest waste of money of any app I have purchased.


Crash Crash Crash  jas194  1 star

July 1 2018 update: Deleted and reinstalled Hipstamatic 344 twice today. App still crashes every single time I try to scroll through the photo library. After many months of complaints it is obvious that the developers are either uninterested or unable to fix Hipstamatic. App is deleted for good this time. May 6th 2018 update: Hipstamatic is now up to version 343 and the app still crashes every time I try to scroll through the library. Is this bug ever going to be fixed? Will not spend any money on new lenses/films until the app is in good working order. Mar 14 2018 update: Despite claims that the crashing problem described below have been looked at, Hipstamatic crashes every single time I try to scroll through the library. This has been happening for many months. On the bright side there is now a very irritating in-app ad that can’t be dismissed. Hey, Hipstamatic, what is my motivation to buy something new from you when your current product doesn’t work and you show no interest in fixing it? Jan 4 2018 update: Hipstamatic still crashing every time I start scrolling through the library. iPhone 8 w/ latest versions of the app and iOS. App crashes every time I try to scroll through the photo library. This is such an obvious problem, why did nobody catch it before release?


Crashing when trying to select a camera roll pic  ssperry57  1 star

It’s crashing every time I try to bring in an existing photo from the camera roll. As soon as I start scrolling through photos, it’s just exits to the desktop screen.

Disappointed with new update  Aaronaki  4 star

I've written before here about how amazing this app is and how I use it exclusively to take photos on my phone, about how much use and enjoyment I get from it for the very small amount of money I've spent on it, about the fact I've a 30x30" print hanging in my house which I ordered using the great print lab service and love, etc etc. I gotta say though, yours was the iOS 7 update I was most looking forward to seeing, especially after seeing the gorgeous oggl app. That app is fun and simple in appearance and things like downloading paks through it, favouriting pix and following users is well thought out and looks great. But then apart from any of the background compatibility stuff that came with the hipstamatic update, the only difference was a "7" pak that you have to pay for that gives a couple of gimmicky coloured flashes and a flat look cover, which all the previously rendered lenses sit awkwardly on top of. Wasn't this the perfect opportunity to make your two apps more cohesive both in look and in operation? At this stage of the game, the old analog layout is clunky and hinders the spontaneity of taking pix (slide the slider, select the lens, film, flash, etc). The oggl interface works far better and looks so much better aswell. The point of this app is to take great pictures (and that it does) not to pretend you're using an old camera. I feel slightly cheated by the charge to give the app a lick of paint, and now feel like my very favourite app is out of sync with the rest of my phone.


Awful  Garyt81  1 star

Waste of money, picture quality is crap. Much better free apps that do the same thing


awesome app  Lise2002  5 star

LOVE LOVE LOVE this app. so well worth the few shillings. Great picture formats!


Whatever  wvanv  1 star

Won't allow FB sharing without allowing it to advertise on your behalf, can't save photos to your library, utter waste of money!


Waste of money  IgorPL  1 star

Fewer filters available for the asking price than in other, often free apps... On the whole it feels unnecessarily gimmicky too.


Great app.  Renot108  5 star

I have been using Hipstamatic for quite some time now. Lovely variety of lenses and films. My Favourite aspect is the ability to set favourites. Can't understand the complaints about the small viewfinder. Obviously from people too young to remember "real" cameras. Also unlike Instagram this app is not just a gimmick. I think people will tire of IG long before this.

Maya Petrovic

Well worth the money  Maya Petrovic  5 star

Great app, love the variety and style of the films, lens and flash combos. Thanks for the occasional freebie, keep it up!


Why?  EddieQ  1 star

Seriously, Instagram is free and better, and has a great community. Tadaa is free and has great filters and effects and a great community. This is a paid app and is not as good. The picture viewer is tiny! I cant imagine who thought it would be more enjoyable to use about an eighth of the screen to compose a picture! Why would you take a great camera phone like the iPhone and use an app as poor as this?
