aiming high

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.

Love the new features but keeps crashing and it's sloooow


Update: Nov 28, 2017.
Notoriously crashing and losing pics I’ve taken with the latest iOS... I really want to give you guys a better rating. Please please fix these issues. I hate it also how it defaults to a different lens/film combo after
I reopen the app after the crashing. Wonder
If anyone else is having these issues?

Update: 30x was supposed to fix your crashing problems so I gave it another try. But why oh why do guys keep releasing versions that keeping crashing?

This latest version crashed the app suddenly. Queued up pics to process are lost which is the most annoying thing. Memories lost. Please please figure out your QA before releasing updates. So disappointed again..

Update:I removed this 30x version and gone back to an older one. Same problems in my wife's iPhone 6+. How can you guys release something so crap when there were so many bugs to work out. I would be embarrassed. Please do yourselves a favour and fix this and win back the your loyal followers.

Come on guys! Please please fix the bugs that keep my fav photo app of all time! It's so disappointing to have this app behave so slowly. My iPhone 5 would halt at times. App crashes and automatically closes... Needs to resolve these issues. I may have to remove this and go back to an earlier version now...

Useless constant crashing


I’ve had Hipstamatic on my iPhones since the beginning, an have loved it for as long as it was loveable. It is no longer, and has been so for a while now. The company’s focus shifted from being a really cool, fun to use, reliable camera to a new pack every month (often with none to little differentiation from packs of the past) to continually try to extract more money from loyalists, all the while ignoring stability issues. It doesn’t matter that I own all but about three of the film/lens packs, They can’t be used at all because the app just CRASHES almost immediately EVERY TIME I TRY TO USE IT.
Way to ruin something great with your greed and carelessness. My belated Christmas gift to myself will be to delete this useless junk app, save myself a whole lot of frustration, and get on with taking photographs with some other app that actually works.
