Instagram-killer, I can't believe it!
I love photography. Plain and simple. I love taking photos and looking at other people's photos... And I didn't realize how much I have been missing out on over the last few years while I was stuck on Instagram. Oggl is the social network for those who appreciate photography. What you won't find here are endless pics of selfies, lattes, and snapshots of your friends' dinners... Instead, you get to discover beautiful photographs from around the world! This app is fantastic, as you can either take photos with it, run them through the amazing Hipstamatic filters, and upload them. Or, you can import your iPhone photos and process them the same as if you took it through this app. It does cost 99 cents per month to use, but it's beyond worth it (as you get access to ALL the Hipstamatic lenses and film, including some not available on the store. I've never had an issue with this app, it's been running like a dream!
Fantastic app, a joy to use!
I don't get all the complaints about Oggl! It's a fantastic app that makes it super easy to create gorgeous, unique images. You can also post your photos and interact with other users from all over the world. The quality of the posted photos is consistently high, and the Oggl community is warm and open. I've been a member pretty much from the beginning, and it's always been fun and inspiring.
To address some specific complaints:
The 1-year membership is $10, but you don't have to become a member. If you already purchased paks from Hipstamatic you can simply import them to Oggl - no additional payment required.
And I don't understand the complaints that you can't use the filters after your membership expires. That's just how life works... If you rent a car and the rental period is over, you return the car - same principle on Oggl. All the photos you've taken during your membership are still there. Seems fair to me. $10 is less than a movie ticket!!!
And if Oggl crashes on your phone it might be due to the phone's memory being almost full. I've experienced this a number of times, and deleting some photos (or other apps...) takes care of the problem.
If you're interested in photography and sharing images, Oggl is a wonderful community to explore. Yes, there are glitches sometimes, but they get fixed!
Late to the Oggl game
I kind of skipped over Oggl when it came out, because I heard you couldn't transfer your Hipsta lenses/film into the app. Apparently now you can, which makes the app perfect in my opinion for what I want it to be: an instagram with tons and tons of better photo processing options. If I really feel the need to be social, I can share the photo to Facebook/Instagram/Twitter from this app. Perfect.
Update: downgrading a star because 1) the newest version is very buggy for me, taking forever to import a photo and previews of filters will randomly stop working, 2) when my subscription ran out it barred me from using a few filters, though I have purchased all of them through the Hipstamatic app, and 3) it really needs to be updated more frequently to justify the cost of a membership. However, for those complaining it overwrites originals, you just need to turn on the option in iPhone settings for Oggl to "save every version"
