I’d always enjoyed taking photos with my iPhone, but what truly took it to the next level was when I downloaded the Hipstamatic app for iPhone over a year ago. Yep, today’s iPhone app of the week is one of my absolute favorites, and I am sooooo excited because in addition to my review, there is a giveaway! :)
If you have no clue what this app does, Hipstamatic allows you to take vintage style square format photos and turns your iPhone into a truly awesome camera with different lenses, films, and flashes.
The app has only improved over the past couple months with the latest updates, and Hipstamatic is by far by favorite photo taking app for the iPhone. I’ve bought all of the different lenses & films since I first downloaded the app and it’s pretty fun trying out all the various combinations. Lately, though, I tend to stick to the Helga lens & Ina’s ’35 film.
Hipstamatic also offers the ability to order prints of your photos right from within the app, using the HipstaMart. You can get 15% off the HipstaMart.com print lab using coupon code AUTUMN through December 3rd.
Here are a few of my favorite Hipstamatic shots that I took on our recent trips to St. Augustine & Alaska/Seattle this past year:
The Hipsta-folks were kind enough to provide me with 25 free download codes. so, if you want to get a FREE download of Hipstamatic for iPhone/iTouch, just leave a comment on my blog! The first 25 comments will receive a code emailed to them when I manage to get myself back to the computer after my turkey-induced coma. ;)
Of course, it’d be pretty sweet if you did any of the following (you don’t get anything extra for these things, but it would be awesome just to show support!):

If you miss out on this cool giveaway and still want this amazing app, click here to purchase and download from iTunes. At only $1.99 for the base set of lenses, film, and flash… it won’t break the bank and will provide hours of fun. Each subsequent HipstaPack with more film/lenses/etc is only 99 cents, which in my opinion is totally worth it considering how much fun it is to use this app. I promise, you will not get tired of it.
A few tips – I prefer to turn off the “shake to randomize” setting since I typically like to shoot with the same lens/film combination, and I also have have my viewfinder mode set to Precision Framing since it’s easier for me to take pictures of my kid that way.
Hope you enjoy this fun giveaway and thanks Hipstamatic for providing the free codes!
Disclosure: I already own Hipstamatic and love using the app! All opinions are my own. Hipstamatic was awesome to provide free download codes & a coupon code for my readers.
