Hipstamatic Reviews


Not what it used to be.  Dutchanfernee  1 star

Long time Hipstamatic user since I got an iPhone in 2010. Somehow updating over years managed to rid all my purchases. Glitchy and constant crashes. This was a huge fave of mine. Don’t bother anymore. All great things must come to an end I guess.


Can’t Print from Favorites Album  Riznow  1 star

I love this app and the prints from the Hipstamatic Print Lab are the best. BUT: Not being able to choose photos out of your Favorites album in iOS photos while in the PrintLab is torturous and makes me not use this app. I use my Favorites album to highlight and color correct all the good photos amongst the thousands I take, ie those are the only ones I want to print but I can’t see which ones they are from the PrintLab! Can you please fix??


Used to be the go to, but now, not so much  AlchemicKnowledge  3 star

Overall I still like most the filters but there’s a few things that really played this app from being great. And the CEO very similar apps that do filters just as good if not better charging one dollar for only 3 to 4 filters gets pretty pricey Probably my biggest complaint with the app is that you cannot do a two times zoom on an iPhone X, really it’s 2019 already?! Please fix as I would love to give more stars


Love this app  DreamMover  5 star

When I first started to use this app I had purchased it in my iTouch 3rd gen and it was beautiful. I used it on a daily basis. That was 2009. Now Ten years later it’s still my favorite app to shoot analog photos with. ✊🏽✊🏽✊🏽


Fantastic app  Bpellet314  5 star

Great app and fantastic support. Helped me with numerous issues and questions. Does everything you could want photo wise. Buy it you won’t be disappointed.


Still an awesome photo app  jobro1356  5 star

I still get amazing results from this app whether I shot classic or pro. I do wish the would adopt HEIF or HEIC whichever you want to call it. I do all my secondary editing in this app to create a different look with my photos. And I still love square format the best. One problem still can’t edit from the rawDNG. Only from JPEG. Keep up the great work!!!


Cool and fun  JRSJ  4 star

I’ve been using this app for a long time. I love it, it’s fun and creative and can produce awesome looking photos. The only downside is it crashes a lot for me when I download new packs or if I’ve restored and need to redownload all of my purchased stuff.


Want to recognize great customer service!!  Oilpatchmike  5 star

I got a new iPhone and had a problem with uploading the app and all my gear to the new phone. I contacted customer service via email. Allen assisted me with the problem. We had several email exchanges to get it corrected. He was prompt, professional, polite, and everything worked out great. Thanks. Mike


More fun per snap  pics_king  5 star

I’ve used this for years. Tried lots of others but this is the most fun app ever. A must have.


Good apps  sotobe3214  5 star

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.

Eddie Corbo

Aspect Ratio = No?  Eddie Corbo  3 star

Did you know that another fun part about film photography is the ability to photograph in different aspect ratios? But Hipstamatic only wants you to photograph in square mode. Unless, however, if you use the normal full screen shooting mode you can change aspects. If a dev is reading this, why do you only allow diff aspect ratios when editing or in full screen mode? I would LOVE a new feature in the setting to choose my own aspect ratio when I’m using Hipstamatic’s default “back of the camera” mode. Please?


Are you even reading the reviews?  deshkaelf  1 star

Update: Still a buggy app, too many new releases without issues being addressed. The first Friday rarely shows up on a Friday and then you must update the app and your iOS. It seems like arm twisting with these constant ‘update’ before you purchase our product tactic. So you update and it still tells you to update. I so miss the app that first came out years ago. Simple and fun. Dear Hipstamatic, From what I am seeing and reading there are a bunch of us long time Hipstamatic users that wish you would have made your new version a stand alone app. Or waited to release when the bugs were all figured out. But you keep releasing new films and lenses ( which are not available to those that didn't upgrade ) and the bugs keep marching on. The thing I keep hearing from my Hipsta friends is that if we wanted to post process photos there is already numerous apps out there that do just that. The fun of this app was that it made you think about films and lenses and what would work for that particular photo. Now there's not much to think about because you can just 'fix it' after the fact. Come on let's get this right. Do some maintenance work on the 280, take the new one out for some major fixing and make the pro version a stand alone.


Good, but ...  Jjaem0  4 star

The controls are whacky. The swiping back and forth is dysfunctional, and will skip several steps at a time, kinda counter intuitive. Also wish the edits started off raw, without automatically applied filters. The results are great, just not easy to navigate.


Random Crashes  TalusFive  2 star

Bought this app the other day for $2.99 cause it looked like it’d be a nice photo app. The few pictures I’ve taken randomly have come out nice. I finally had some time at a local bar to mess around with it throughly and unfortunately the frequent crashes have not made it a pleasant experience. I’ll take a photo and the app with crash and the photo was lost. Repeated this three times until it finally saved. Too much work for a photo app especially then the market is saturated with photo filter apps.


Crashes Constantly  Jubby44  1 star

Hipstamatic has been my favorite camera app for about 5 years now. Until last week! I can’t even edit a photo anymore without the app crashing. So annoying!


This app not opening on my iPhone X  Debund  4 star

I have tried over and over to open this on my iPhone X. I love this app and also have a collection many lens and and film. I love this app and miss it very much .


Best photo app ever  NikonShooter34240  5 star

I've been using the iPhone for 10 years. I've tried dozens of photos apps. Frankly, nearly all of them are garbage. Hipstamatic is the one photo app I have continued to use ever since I first downloaded it. It makes photography fun again!


Bug  Scooby009  3 star

After ios11.4.1 update I can’t use my phone camera anymore unless I don’t allow Hipstamatic to use phone camera


Fix immediately  egow06  1 star

The app keep crashing when edit a photo it’s super annoying and I’m about to delete this app forever and will give bad comments so nobody will download it. Update the app very soon.

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!


Fantastic app  abyskings  5 star

Love this app, fantastic variety of filters. One of the best photography apps out there.

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?
