Instant brings back the magic of the iconic Polaroid instant camera to your iPhone. At the touch of a finger, users can shoot a new picture using the camera on the iPhone 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 top of the 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. Users can also adjust the effect of the Polaroid border, such as choosing from 26 different colors, adding crosshatch, stain, wrinkle and fingerprints on to the border.
The Polaroid photos can be saved to your photo library and easily shared via Email, Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Tumblr, Instagram (requires Instagram app pre-installed) and Sina Weibo.

What's New in Version 1.1.1
- Save original taken photo by default
- Fixed issue with iPod touch
Works with 6+ and newest IOS
I love Polaroid, any kind of Polaroid, and this is a fun app. I like the fact that the photos can be saved without the border, which allows me to take it to the new Polaroid photo labs to print them up in the real world. Please take advantage of the new possibilities with the newest iPhones- maybe more filters? There is one thing that needs fixing. When the save size is set to 2,000, the save process works but the wheel spins endlessly.
just a few flaws in an otherwise fantastic app:
1. I had hoped for a better audio recording of the familiar sound of the camera dispensing exposed film.
2. app requires you to locate previous position in your camera roll (if you have thousands, this can get tedious) if you cancel your selection to select another pic*.
3. preview pic* of your camera roll is too small (likely a limitation of iOS).
4. saving pics to camera roll should allow for a default setting of automatic save without requiring user input.
5. saving pics to camera roll is way too slow!
6. optional export to SMS!
picky observations, but I love the app. just wish it printed out a Polaroid picture from my iPhone!
ps: allow for easy printing from within the app like hipstamatic.
Cherry of photography
This app has become my life! I was never born in the era of Polaroids (to my dismay) but this app gives me the feel of what it would be like to have one. I love the filter effects and the overall look! My friends constantly ask how I get my pictures to look as stunning as they do!
