Crash. I used this all the time. Great stuff. Now, it crashes every time. Very disappointing. Please fix.

I love this app, it’s delivers beautiful pictures easily and sales makes in store purchases completely affordable and well worth every penny. I loathe, loathe all the crashes.
Thee Magnificent John's Review of Hipstamatic ClassicReviewed on 8/6/18 5:45 PM
I’ve been using this app in all of its iterations since the year it came out. I liked what it started out as, and I love what it’s turned into. Ȯggl was cool but is a complete ghost town now, so don’t bother, but it’s 2018 and Hipstamatic is still my favorite app for creative and fun photography. And you can have the photos printed out too!!!
Eddie Corbo's Review of Hipstamatic ClassicReviewed on 8/4/18 8:52 PM
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?
deshkaelf's Review of Hipstamatic ClassicReviewed on 8/4/18 4:29 PM
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.
Jjaem0's Review of Hipstamatic ClassicReviewed on 8/3/18 5:06 AM
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.
Dorothy Sebastian's Review of Hipstamatic ClassicReviewed on 8/28/19 1:14 PM
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.
Papa Viddy Well's Review of Hipstamatic ClassicReviewed on 8/28/19 1:14 PM
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!
Ziggymay's Review of Hipstamatic ClassicReviewed on 8/28/19 1:14 PM
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.
AngDLD's Review of Hipstamatic ClassicReviewed on 8/28/19 1:14 PM
I love this app. It makes taking pictures fun again. With the option of switching lenses and films the options are endless. I’ve ended up with some gorgeous pictures. My only complaint is that I can’t get out of the app without shutting down my phone. Would love to see that glitch fixed.

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??

Whifton Polekitty's Review of Hipstamatic ClassicReviewed on 8/28/19 1:14 PM
I’ll be honest, I love this. For myself and the right friends, the artistic style and the sheer number of options are terrific. For myself and my snotty anti-art people, it still saves normal (boring) shots. It’s surprisingly flexible. Some people say they have too many options, and if that’s your problem maybe think about it carefully, but the Random feature will help you find the five or six you want (I only have 95, so... maybe I’m the one with a problem). The only REAL problems: - Occasionally the exposure freaks out and sets to very dark shots unless I set it to Automatic again. - There does not appear to a way to set a given exposure as a default (500 for instance, rather the automatically setting Automatic). - Focus occasionally goes universally blurry when switching between Wide and Tele, which can only be reset by switching to the front view and back again. - It can get... expensive.
harrysonpics's Review of Hipstamatic ClassicReviewed on 8/28/19 1:14 PM
I upgraded to 11.3 and iPhone 8 Plus. Hipstamatic crashes either on launch or immediately after taking pic. I have tried reinstalling app and clearing print query. Update: went back to old iPhone and Hipstamatic works fine on iOS 11.3 . Back on 8 plus got Hipstamatic to work, but it does crash when trying to save raw master file. It will save a jpeg master file just fine. April 20, 2018: thanks to response from developer, I upgraded to new version and now saves raw files. Thanks, I can now give Hipstamatic 4 stars. Update on June 9, 2019: In classic mode, the app will not focus when using telephoto. Today the app also failed to focus in wide angle mode while in classic mode. Any way to fix?

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.
Lisa Lefebvre's Review of Hipstamatic ClassicReviewed on 8/28/19 1:14 PM
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.
DreamMover's Review of Hipstamatic ClassicReviewed on 8/28/19 1:14 PM

Paper Master's Review of Hipstamatic ClassicReviewed on 8/18/18 6:18 AM
This sad day has been many years in the making, but I finally had to remove my beloved Hipstamatic from my iPhone. I have been a Hipsta devotee since day one, so much so it’s the only reason I’m still on an iPhone. It has been my singular stylized iPhone shooting and editing app since the first time I used it, and I suffered through all the issues over the years (they never really conquered iCloud syncing of edits, did they?). But since approx v3 it’s just become so unstable to a point that it was ruining shoots. The issues started about a year ago, when Hipsta started killing my battery routinely taking my phone from 30% to a hard dead in seconds. On one shoot on the Highline in NYC Hipsta killed the phone so badly I had to take into an Apple store to get it restarted. Now with the latest version it’s completely dead, crashing on every start, displaying the lens on the case off-center, quitting but still running in the background, and still with the battery issues. It’s a sad day indeed, but if you can’t rely on your photo software then it’s time for the software to go. It was a good run, old friend...😢

lumierefl's Review of Hipstamatic ClassicReviewed on 8/14/18 2:20 PM
I’m impressed with the evolution of this app. Over the years other photo apps began to surpass it in usability & results so for me, it eventually became irrelevant. Until recently. The changes I found are, in my opinion, revolutionary. The engaging unpredictability of the original Hipstamatic remains but added control leads to endless possibilities for experimentation & discovery. Love it. Kudos to the developers.
Finshu's Review of Hipstamatic ClassicReviewed on 8/11/18 4:23 PM

aiming high's Review of Hipstamatic ClassicReviewed on 8/10/18 9:30 AM
I have been dealing with the ongoing crashing problem since the release of iOS 11 back in September, 2017. I’ve been in regular correspondence with the developers since last fall, am part of their beta testing program, have submitted COUNTLESS crash logs, and provided the particulars of when the crashing occurs...over and over again! The developers have been prompt and courteous in replying to my emails, and invariably offer assurances that the problem is being addressed, and a fix is coming. But after almost 11 months, and 8 successive release versions of Hipstamatic (along with a slew of new Hipstapaks, SnapPaks, etc), that just hasn't happened. Thus, I am forced to conclude that the developers, although seemingly willing, are simply UNABLE, to fix this problem. I can think of no other explanation for why such a serious flaw, so often reported by users, has not been fixed after all this time. Like many others, I was a faithful Hipstamatic user, and invested heavily in a plethora of add-ons, so it is with a feeling of utter disappointment, exasperation and sadness that I must now look elsewhere for a creative photography solution using iOS. ********** Still crashing constantly in 342! Waiting (since September) for a fix that works for me. That’s 7 months if you’re counting. UPDATE, April 10: Totally dismayed! After more than 6 months of constant crashing STILL NO FIX in version 341! Despite my repeated pleas to the developer and agreeing to be patient, submitting numerous crash reports at developer's request (beginning back in December), and receiving assurances that this problem would be dealt with, all efforts seem to be focused on cranking out new paks while ignoring the many complaints. I can only conclude that responsive customer support takes a back seat to monetizing the app as much as possible, which I have abetted for almost 4 years to the tune of about $70. Please listen to your loyal and long suffering customers and fix the app! We love Hipstamatic, but we want, and I believe deserve, an app that works! Is that so unreasonable? UPDATE, Dec. 18: STILL NOT FIXED in 340 update!!! Crashes constantly as before. Lens and film defaulting to Jane, Inas 82 on restart. Incredibly, nearly 3 months has passed and the problems are still unresolved! Very disappointed to say the least! I’m about ready to give up on Hipstamatic. UPDATE, Dec 10: After several weeks of unrelenting frustration due to constant crashing I finally opted to delete the app and download a fresh copy, knowing that I would lose all my favorites in the process. I was hoping this would fix the problem, but it did not! The problem persists as before. This app needs to be updated for iOS 11 ASAP and double checked to make sure the crashing problem has been fixed. Until then, Hipstamatic, my longtime go-to app, is useless to me, and I gather, to many others. Sad! I’ve been a longtime and faithful Hipstamatic user, with 52 paks (78 lenses, 84 films, 17 flashes, 8 cases). But all that changed with the iOS 11 update. As others have reported the app crashes when opening a photo for editing or to browse photos already taken. It also crashes randomly at other times, and when restarted defaults to the Jane lens and Ina’s 82 film. Very frustrating and virtually unuseable until this problem is fixed! Please do so ASAP! Thank you.
WellDoneMediumRare's Review of Hipstamatic ClassicReviewed on 8/10/18 8:43 PM
I purchased Hipstamatic approximately one week ago and it worked flawlessly until this morning. I have really wrung this app out and found nothing wrong with it until, wait for it, until I updated my iOS. I updated to IOS 11.4.1 this morning and it has crashed regularly since then. I can only surmise that it is not the apps fault or the developers fault but it simply does not perform well under the latest iOS update. Hopefully, the developers will soon release an update incorporating changes that fix the problems with the latest iOS. I hope so because I have sunk a ton of money into this app and it’s add-ons.

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.

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 b*** 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!

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?

Hipstamatic has depths that one should explore. One can download combos (lens, film, flash, & adjustments) and then apply them to your photos, plus one can call up the editing tools to put a spin on an image. While Hipstamatic excels at being simple and fun, one can also explore its hidden complexity.
Dreamlandia's Review of Hipstamatic ClassicReviewed on 6/13/18 1:48 PM
so I've used hipstamatic for years now, I've played with the filters and settings and everything. A lot of the filters are too dark it seems. But that's not the issue here, I'm on vacation right now and have been taking a lot of photos and I have my save original setting turned on, and have it set to save as versions. The day that I take the photo it looks fine, but the next day it reverts back to the original photo with no crop or filter. Then if I go into hipstamatic and edit it the crop and filter reapplies...... this is really strange and also annoying.

I’ve spent A LOT of money on this app and for it to no longer work is a great disappointment. They had the app working again a few weeks ago for both the iPhone and the iPad.

Buzzzbrain's Review of Hipstamatic ClassicReviewed on 5/18/18 6:05 PM
I loaded Hipstamatic several years ago. I found it fun and always grabbed any special or free offers when I found them. Since then I've become a more frequent buyer. As many folks, I hopped around to try other apps. But never let go of Hipstamatic. I have an on and off again usage history with this app. It's always been my Ace in the hole. Recently a new film Pak was released and it fired me up again. I had a few questions about matching lenses with films and finding my favorites. I wrote to service. I'm happy to say the problem was me. The app is perfect. I'm still running my iPhone 6s and enjoy it and Hipstamatic together. One of the fastest service responses I've had with any company in years. A responsive and knowledgeable tech walked me through the process. Thanks Hipstamatic!
damidcitybrat's Review of Hipstamatic ClassicReviewed on 5/16/18 1:20 PM
I have been using this app a long time, since at least 2012/2013. And while I absolutely love photos I have taken and the play in the lenses and so forth, I don’t love that the app is consistently crashing whether it is 2013 or 2018. As a result I have gone away and not used the app for months at a time out of frustration. No one wants to consistently redo their work. More often than not, approximately 75% to 80% I am spending way too much time with the process as it will require several tries on one photo only to have it crash and then have to redo the process. The other percentage actually works, but it rare to not have it crash. So by association, there is a negative feeling that is now becoming the norm when thinking about using Hipstamatic. No amount of updates from iPhone and y’all seem to be working. I sure hope y’all are able to fix this once and for all. Please prove me wrong, that would be great. That said, I do love all the lenses and the film I have purchased over the time I have had the app.

toepin's Review of Hipstamatic ClassicReviewed on 5/12/18 3:40 PM
It's been 5 years since my first review. I used to love hipstamatic! I would love to leave a positive review here now, but I just can't. Things have really gone downhill for me and I'm sad to say I can no longer give a 5 star review. I would have to give it 2 stars now. I still love the filters and have my few favorites that keep me coming back (except tejas-what happened to tejas? I used to love that lens and now it's different???). These days, by the time it takes for the app to open and actually take a picture, the moment is gone. Also, when it finally does open and I'm taking pictures, I look back only to realize it has changed the lens and film I was using to a default one (the strangest part is it reverts to a film that I have disabled-Ina's 1935). Super annoying!!! Also, the glitches!!! This app will shut down on you at any time, all the time. Trying to view a picture is like pressing a force quit button. I just don't get why they can't get it together. I still patiently wait, thinking maybe this next update will fix all these issues, and every time, it's just the same, no better. The newest update is possibly the glitchiest (if that's even a word). If I wasn't so dedicated to one or two lenses, I would have easily given up a long time ago. For now, I'm hanging on by a thread, a very tiny, sentimental one now because I really did love the hipstamatic of old (see my first review 👇🏼). 2013 review: I love the hipstamatic app-it's my most used photo app! I love the variety of lenses and films, and the anticipation of new editions! My favorite lens is the tejas, I have been a hipstamatic user for over 2 years now, and still enjoy it as much as when I first got it. My suggestions for improvement: 1) the ability to turn on/off certain features within the lenses, like the removing heavy vignette with the tejas or the textures from the aobw & buckhorst, etc. 2) create a film with no borders or lines. 2) delete all photos at once

Latest version is not working on my iPhone SE and most recent OS. However when I deleted the app and uploaded it again it worked fine. I do love this app.

BO1060's Review of Hipstamatic ClassicReviewed on 4/7/18 4:39 PM
I have not used my Hipstamatic app in a few weeks. I normally use it frequently throughout a week and refer to my “Shot with Hipstamatic” album often. Today I opened the app and all the photos in that album are gone! I had backed up most of them so that’s not a problem. But I use that album heavily and had many pics in there that I was using. I just LOVE having them there for convenience & referring to for favorite gear combos. Where did my album go??? I’ve not changed anything & can’t figure out what happened. Please help!! I want my album back.

I just need an upgrade so I can use the last package I purchased.
harrysonpics's Review of Hipstamatic ClassicReviewed on 4/21/18 3:56 PM
I upgraded to 11.3 and iPhone 8 Plus. Hipstamatic crashes either on launch or immediately after taking pic. I have tried reinstalling app and clearing print query. Update: went back to old iPhone and Hipstamatic works fine on iOS 11.3 . Back on 8 plus got Hipstamatic to work, but it does crash when trying to save raw master file. It will save a jpeg master file just fine. April 20, 2018: thanks to response from developer, I upgraded to new version and now saves raw files. Thanks, I can now give Hipstamatic 4 stars.
aiming high's Review of Hipstamatic ClassicReviewed on 4/19/18 7:31 PM
Still crashing constantly in 342! Waiting (since September) for a fix that works for me. That’s 7 months if you’re counting. UPDATE, April 10: Totally dismayed! After more than 6 months of constant crashing STILL NO FIX in version 341! Despite my repeated pleas to the developer and agreeing to be patient, submitting numerous crash reports at developer's request (beginning back in December), and receiving assurances that this problem would be dealt with, all efforts seem to be focused on cranking out new paks while ignoring the many complaints. I can only conclude that responsive customer support takes a back seat to monetizing the app as much as possible, which I have abetted for almost 4 years to the tune of about $70. Please listen to your loyal and long suffering customers and fix the app! We love Hipstamatic, but we want, and I believe deserve, an app that works! Is that so unreasonable? UPDATE, Dec. 18: STILL NOT FIXED in 340 update!!! Crashes constantly as before. Lens and film defaulting to Jane, Inas 82 on restart. Incredibly, nearly 3 months has passed and the problems are still unresolved! Very disappointed to say the least! I’m about ready to give up on Hipstamatic. UPDATE, Dec 10: After several weeks of unrelenting frustration due to constant crashing I finally opted to delete the app and download a fresh copy, knowing that I would lose all my favorites in the process. I was hoping this would fix the problem, but it did not! The problem persists as before. This app needs to be updated for iOS 11 ASAP and double checked to make sure the crashing problem has been fixed. Until then, Hipstamatic, my longtime go-to app, is useless to me, and I gather, to many others. Sad! I’ve been a longtime and faithful Hipstamatic user, with 52 paks (78 lenses, 84 films, 17 flashes, 8 cases). But all that changed with the iOS 11 update. As others have reported the app crashes when opening a photo for editing or to browse photos already taken. It also crashes randomly at other times, and when restarted defaults to the Jane lens and Ina’s 82 film. Very frustrating and virtually unuseable until this problem is fixed! Please do so ASAP! Thank you.

After I updated my iPhone X to the latest version of Hipstamatic my phone crashed each time I tried to take a photo. I got in touch with their support team and Allan (the same name, but not me) worked with me to fix the problem. It took a few days, but Ryan came up with a solution and a bug fix. I use the Pro Mode for shooting and editing and thanks to a suggestion from Allan, I learned that I could edit photos even though I couldn’t take them with the app at that point in time. This actually encouraged me to experiment with the lighting modes in the native camera and come up with some interesting images. I like this app and am happy with the Customer Support that I have received.

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!!!!!

It was one of my favorite go-to apps since day one. Updates are great if they make improvements and don’t break what actually works. Now I open it and crashes. I installed and reinstalled. Didn’t help much. It crashes - a lot. So please go and fix and test and test again before releasing. Fix. Read these reviews, please. Test before you release an update. Then test again.

So_Jane's Review of Hipstamatic ClassicReviewed on 4/10/18 3:38 AM
I have used this app religiously for 4 years while working on a daily photo project. Over the past 2 months it has begun to crash frequently, while shooting. Just quit and land me in phone settings or safari or goodness knows where- everywhere but Hipstamatic! But I’m a die hard and keep coming back. I’m running an iPhone 8, I capture RAW and I update within a few days of release. With the iOS update and the fisheye update, the app continually crashes. I deleted Hipstamatic and reinstalled hoping that would help, but Nooooooooo! C’Mon, you can do better than this. Please.
Dolcevespa1's Review of Hipstamatic ClassicReviewed on 4/10/18 3:36 PM
Fix your crashing problem after your last update. I’ve been a long time user and have a lot of money invested in this app and this happens after every update. I’ve reinstalled twice and it still isn’t completely fixed. I belong to Hipsta groups and have seen many others complain. Maybe investing some of that profit into better technology and customer service would help. You have a great app and it’s a shame when I hear people say it’s only good for editing because you can’t use the camera. Kind of pathetic no?
Harpo29's Review of Hipstamatic ClassicReviewed on 4/10/18 1:57 AM
Great app love the filters. But lately I'm beginning to not use Hipstamatic it's much, starting to find it increasingly hard to receive pictures process my pictures, Sometimes my pictures seem to just disappear definitely needs an update to try to correct this problem or will be forced to use different camera app

I have been using this app for years have tons of lenses and film sets, the last up date totally bricked my Hipstamatic app. It opened one time took a shot CRASHED. Opened it again CRASH. And now it will not open at all.

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.

Makes photography with your iPhone fun and interesting. Hipstamatic keeps the vibe fresh with great new content releases very frequently. Used with Ȯggl and the experience is perfect for my quirky tastes. It feels great to get away from the Instacrowds to do my own thing.
onthecomeup's Review of Hipstamatic ClassicReviewed on 12/17/18 12:56 PM
I used to LOVE this app. Now it only works sometimes. When I says “works” I really mean “saves”. In work mode it’s fine. I’m able to get everything done, but then when I go to SAVE it, it crashes....MOST of the time. Every now and then it will say or I’ll just do a screen capture as it’s trying to save. Very sad. This used to be my favorite, and now it’s the worst. Fix it and I’ll give it 5 stars, gladly. I WANT this to go back to being the great app it used to be. I don’t want it to fail, as it has done thus far. I’m not going to use it for a while until it gets fixed.

Really great photo editor with lots of capabilities. Only problem is, it crashes 9 times out of 10. Really wish the developer would figure this out because it’s a great app that I’ve only really been able to use a couple of times.
Karen focus's Review of Hipstamatic ClassicReviewed on 12/17/18 12:56 PM
I’ve been using and enjoying creating imagery with Hipstamatic since 2010, when I first discovered the app while leading a photo tour in Morocco. What originally drew me to the app was the look and feel it had like a separate and unique camera, and the unpredictability and fun of pairing the many different lenses and films. So I was very disappointed when I started experiencing continued crashing over the past months. I first contacted Hipstamatic Support in early August and received an immediate reply from Allan. He asked a lot of questions and then, had me do a few tests, and also had me send him some diagnostic information, which he then passed on with a log I sent him, to Hipstamatic developer, Ryan, for investigation. We communicated regularly over the next month, with Allan keeping me up to date on the progress they were making with the crashing issue. In late September, Allan wrote that they had an update to Hipstamatic that was in beta testing and told me that as soon as that new version was fully tested, it would be sent to Apple for approval. He said they hoped to have the update out soon. And now, with the update to Hipstamatic Version 352, it appears that this problem is solved! Thank you, Allan, and the rest of the Hipstamatic team, for your hard work on my behalf..and for the many, many photographers who have been creating with this wonderful app for so long. I’m glad I was patient!

I’ve loved this app for years, but on my iPhone X it’s become useless. Runs horrifically slow, to constant crashes and cocoa error -1 and inability to save images. I have nearly all the packs, yet despite the $ and long term loyalty, I’ve started looking for something else to use.

Please tell me that you didn’t REALLY get rid of the Incredibooth App I loved that app SO much & used it often but trying to make space for an update temporarily thought I was deleting it but now it’s nowhere to be seen in the apps store. I had paid for almost all the additions too. And now I all I find in its place is your video version with everyone’s reviews conveyed has some advertising stamp on all of the photos. What happened to you guys? Hipstamatic is still a great app but dang?!?
Stamp Goddess's Review of Hipstamatic ClassicReviewed on 12/17/18 12:56 PM
I’ve used this program for many years and I have almost every pack and linens/film offered by Hipstamatic.. i have lived through every upgrade since iPhone 3.0. There have been several times that I have lost my gear and Hipstamatic has always been able to restore it. Recently with iPhone X i just found out that the reason why some packs are never available is because they have multiple lenses or multiple film options. Hipstamatic doesn’t want to offer these to you as your favorites because there are too many options. And is also concerned that if you buy Retro packs that the same error can occur and replicate your packs. I’ve had duplicate packs show up in my favorites and I’ve always wondered why I had to delete them… not that big of a deal but I was curious. I guess that now they no longer will, but not having gear show up in your favorites, which is where you find your basic film /lens combo options, is simply unacceptable and the developers need to do something to create an option to either provides one film lens combination with multipacks, perhaps with the caveat that you must add the others manually yourself, or provide them all... or better still program a toggle on packs that provide those multiple options instead of making you wonder where your gear is and forcing you to go go look for the options and try to remember what you’ve bought and figure out why it is missing and load them yourself manually!! As soon as you buy several packs of film you will be truly frustrated when you acquire one of the film packs with multiple films/lenses and have to go find your packs and build them manually. I’ve spent over $100 on this app and this is truly unacceptable for an app with this many options.
Dreamlandia's Review of Hipstamatic ClassicReviewed on 12/17/18 12:56 PM
so I posted a review a few months ago about a glitch I was experiencing with the app, I received an email promptly from the development team asking specific questions about the problem and they were very attentive. I was impressed by the level of care with which they addressed the issue. now I am wondering, is it possible to add a self timer feature? or maybe an apple watch extension so you can take a picture from the watch? it would be nice to take group pictures and selfies from farther away.
jobro1356's Review of Hipstamatic ClassicReviewed on 12/17/18 12:56 PM
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.

lake fiend's Review of Hipstamatic ClassicReviewed on 12/17/18 12:56 PM
I have loved this app since I bought it 3 years ago especially since it started supporting RAW photos but recently it has started to crash and close out 9 out of 10 times I open it to try and take a picture. There doesn’t seem to be any rhyme or reason behind it, the screen just goes black and takes me back to my iPhone home screen. I have tried restarting my phone but doesn’t really eliminate the problem. Not sure if it’s the app or the phone or the os. I have a brand new iPhone 8, and it’s really frustrating that this keeps happening, it ruins being able to capture certain moments. Hopefully there is an update or fix coming soon.

I don’t think they’ve discontinued support for this app, since they’re still releasing products and updates, but this app has become a train wreck. Crashes CONSTANTLY and cannot be relied upon. It makes me really sad, as I used to delight in this app, and there’s nothing to replace it— it’s unique.

Hands down, the best app for your iPhone! Have been a long time user, since the iPhone 4, and it still remains my #1! The care, and tutelage the developers give this app on a CONSTANT basis is bar none. No one even comes close to the perfection of this app! Consistent updates, wonderful add on paks, and stellar customer service, will forever make this my “desert island “ app! Love it, love it, love it!
