I was worried at first because of all the negative reviews but since it was only 99 cents I decided to take the plunge and it works amazing on my iPhone XS Max. My only minor criticism is that the preview is slightly delayed when adjusting the grain but that’s just me being impatient
The most enchanting experience I’ve ever had traveling back in time, while living in the future now.
It only has 4 features and then after that it gets boring because you can only do so much with it. Developers please don’t be so stingy with your features and add some more goodies. Right now this app should of been for free, not 99¢
This app is so disappointing! I see nothing good with it! Wish I had never purchased it!
This app is so much fun! Well worth the buck.
I use this app for old architecture or reenactments. Very haunting and beautiful effect.
This makes the closest thing I’ve seen to actual tintype photos. (Still a notable gap between this and the real thing, but hey— this is $0.99.) LOTS of fun, especially the slow fade in animation, as if the image is exposing. Great for fancy parties like New Years. It’s unfortunate that it only keeps one face in focus. Could be awesome for group photos. It took a minute to figure out where the tintypes are saved / how to save them to my camera roll. Some clarity around that experience could be helpful. Not sure I’d use it, but could be a cool touch: Order a tintype image printed on glass, through the app, like it’s the real deal? 🤵🏻
I love this app
Taking selfies has never been this much fun! I like the way these look. Also, you can “tintype” any photo on your phone. Of the hundreds of apps I have this one is my favorite photo app.
I have used this app for a while, and love the effect that it can achieve, but I would like a couple improvements. A) begin able to select the area for a square crop. B) begin able to select the central points for the DOF to start to fall off from.
The simplicity is great and I have fun with the effects. All good (including for export) until photos are downloaded back to iPhoto where only the original photo is saved – without the effect. Have played with the preferences options with the same result. So not worth it sadly!
Nice app but wish I could manually set the pupil points by tapping because the app fails to recognise them most of the time
For an app that I had to buy, TinType had a very narrow range of abilities and effects. It would have been fine if the three effects (colour, b&w and sepia) could be tweaked in a more flexible manner. The grain meter either overexposed or underexposed every photo I tried when I moved the bar between 0-100. It didn't make any of my photos look decent enough, let alone good. I tried it with many photos because I didn't want to give it up that the app was disappointing at best, because of the fact that I paid for it, but here I am, writing this review and about to delete it off my phone.
Well worth a buy. Great results. Well done hipsta team. I Leave a star free 'cause i'm sure you'll improve it in some way.. Actually after using for a few days- the ability to process pics from photo roll is great but the fact you can only overwrite your existing photo is ridiculous. Makes it hard to find too, say u want to post it to instagram . It gets put back where original photo was, instead of at the top of the roll where new pics appear. Not user friendly in this way.
It would be cool to do an Oggl and import purchased films. Other than that, I've found my new selfie app.
I'm having same issues. iPhone 6. Up to date iOS. Try to import a portrait and app crashes immediately. Every time. Tried a restart of app. Restarted phone. Nope. No luck.
Fantastic little app. The pictures are hauntingly beautiful. Simple interface (good). Needs TIFF uncompressed support. Hopefully it happens in a future release (soon). Recommended!
Crashes constantly when I choose images from the camera roll.
This app was a lifesaver for a long time. Today, however, it started to randomly crash when I selected a photo to use. I hope an update is released to fix this. Until then, I can't use the app.
Love the app but it over sharpens the eyes to almost eerie looking.
It crashes every time I am uploading a picture to edit. Any suggestions on how to solve this? Beyond that, I like the app.
Completely unusable. So bad I want my measly $.99 back.
Love this app but since upgrading to iPhone 6 when I try to open an old photo in TinType the app just crashes. Seems to only open photos I've taken with iPhone 6. Would love for this bug to be fixed!!!
A somewhat crude app, but it does the job. However, Hipstamatic inc., you do not need to know my location everytime I snap a picture, and "no" means exactly that : no. It doesn't mean : please annoy me with pop ups asking me for my location 25 times each time I use the app !! It's 2015 and some developpers still don't get it...
Crashes about every 4 tries. Lame.
