Be nice if I could actually sign in


I love using this app to crop and save my polaroids to my phone but really I could probably do that without this app. So I figured I'll try the gallery and upload a few of my pics, but I can't sign in with my online information. Why can't I sign in? So what good is this app if you can't post the pictures you've taken to the gallery because it doesn't recognize your login. Impossible your film is so expensive seems like you could afford to fix this issue. I love buying the film, don't us as customer deserve an app that works right?

Account login


I have an account on impossible project's website, but that's apparently not the same login and there's no option to create a login. Can't really use it for what's it's designed for.

Scanner for 300?

Mr. McKenny

So far enjoying the scanner and seems to work great! However, (and I know the pic300 film isn't an Impossible product, but would love if the scanner could recognize that size, too.
