On point, fun, a great homage to Polaroids
This is a high quality app for creating Polaroid images on your iPhone. I've seen a lot come and go, but this app is unique because it's curated by Patrick Hoelck, and he's picked out very special filters that makes this a personal experience. The app is straight to the point, you point and shoot and instantaneously create a Polaroid, which is Instagram formatted and easy to share across multiple platforms. I love it for it's nostalgic undertones and ease of use. Highly recommended!
Polaroid nostalgia !
There's something unique about this app, that it makes you feel as if Patrick is walking next to you in a gallery. The commentary he gives between pictures is insightful. There's also a nice contrast between analog and digital-especially considering the digital age we are living in.
Also, I enjoy the Polaroid feature and how it's already pre-sized to work with your existing social media accounts. That "click" sound as your photo processes is rad !
I've been a big fan of Patrick and his work for a while now. The filters are fun to play around with and put up on Instagram/any other social media. But my favorite part of the app is that when you unlock the book it gives an intimate look into Patrick's life and work. The commentary truly makes the app unique and makes you feel as if you've been in the same moments Patrick has experienced.
