From a Joy to a Chore

Clockwork Pirate

I’ve been using Hipstamatic for years, invested in a lot of the filters and have had nothing but a five star experience up until a few months ago. It seems to coincide with the release of iOS 11 and more importantly iPhone X. Since then, my go-to app for genuinely terrific photography has crashed, frozen, failed to save, etc. If the developer keeps crash reports, there’s got to be a whole library by now just for me given the number of times this app has let me down and yet I keep coming back to it.

I can echo a lot of recent reviews by saying “Come in guys...”. I understand the desire to make the software compatible with the newest technology but if it is at the expense of the experience of loyal users who have invested a great deal of time and more than a little money on extras, you’re not doing your due diligence when it comes to addressing issues with ‘recent’ technology.

I’ve hoped after every of the last 5 or so updates that the bugs would be quashed, yet in many cases the experience is worse rather than better. I’m hanging in there guys but please reward my and others patience with a functional app before we find something that doesn’t consume half our time retracing our steps over and over.

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.

Hello there! Our apologies that the latest update continues to cause some issues for you. We've received your most recent crash log and are investigating.

It’s OK... but can disappoint


As the overall 4.8 out of 5 rating indicates, this app has captured the hearts and imagination of a lot of folks... but the preponderance of recent reviews reflect my experience with both my iPhone8+ and iPad Pro... sadly,the app crashes at the most inconvenient moments. When the camera, lenses, films, and flashes work, the images can be stunningly satisfying... and editing images, with the options of changing lenses and films after the fact, is very nice... provided things don’t crash.
My recommendation is to go ahead and get the app, but don’t go crazy getting the add-on lenses, films and flashes until you get a sense of how the basic camera works on your device. Otherwise, you may find it incredibly frustrating to have spent money and time tooling-up and exploring the possibilities... only to end up with a crash-prone and buggy app.
On the good side: the developers seem to be available, and my experience with them has been quite positive. There’s a lot that must be going on “under the hood” of this app, and making every device play nice must be very difficult. We can only hope the crashes get fixed in the next update.
