Instant, the popular Polaroid app on Mac, has finally come to iPad! Check out demo video at http://instanttheapp.com.
Instant brings back the magic of the iconic Polaroid instant camera to your iPad. At the touch of a finger, users can shoot a new picture using the camera on the iPad or select an existing one from their photo album, apply an authentic Polaroid-like filter, add Polaroid class border and write text on it, thus, compose a classic Polaroid instant photo.
Instant app mimics the workflow of a real classic Polaroid instant camera, with realistic visual and sound effects. Upon selecting or shooting a photo, an "undeveloped" dark Polaroid film slides out from the bottom of the camera on screen. Slowly the film is developed and the final picture unveils.
The app comes with 30 unique vintage style photo filters, with 10 of them closely mimicking the effects of various classic Polaroid films. Each filter is adjustable in strength, vignette and emulsion artifacts, adding even more realistic Polaroid look. Users may also add text to their Polaroid photo, selecting from 10 handwriting style fonts. Text can be freely resized, rotated and moved around by finger gestures.
The Instant app for iPad takes full advantage of the large and gorgeous high-resolution iPad screen. Multiple Polaroids photos can be placed on screen at the same time, each can be rotated and moved around freely.
The Polaroid photos can be saved to your photo library and easily shared via Email, Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Tumblr and Instagram (requires Instagram app pre-installed).

What's New in Version 1.0.3
- Fixed the bug that portrait mode was unlocked by mistake.
This is the perfect app for photographic documentation because of the ability to add text to the bottom white space. When the photo is exported to Photos app, the text becomes part of the photo pixels, and therefore can NOT be changed without being detected! I use this to photographically document fossils I have included in documents I author. Great work!
Nice start, but low res output
Some nice basic preset looks. You can adjust intensity, vignette, and emulsion on each preset. The square look is the only option. You can also add text in a variety of fonts/colors.
Unfortunately, the output resolution of the saved photos is around 1200x1400 pixels (including the frame). If the developer could get that up to full resolution the app would be pretty nice.
Very cool app!
Playing with it is like having a real Polaroid in your hands... a fun app to have!
