Customer Reviews

Loads of fun in sharing ‘old’ Polaroid instamatics!

WHen I took a recent picture, ran it through Instant and sent it to my aunt, she was sort of baffled. A recent Polaroid photo? Where did I get the film? I was always a fan of all Polaroid cameras but this one takes me back. I love the processing, different filters, etc. I’t just a lot of fun and fun to work with as well.

Great app

Instant has an easy to use and fun interface as well as tons of great-looking filters. Like having Instagram on your desktop. I’m glad I bought it.

This is loads of fun.

I got this for my macbook first and had so much fun I coughed up the $1.99 for the iphone and iPad version.

It’s not often an app is this cool but this one is.
