Since I got an iPhone my favorite activity has been playing with camera apps, so I thought I'd compare the ones I've been using in a Consumer Reports style. Let me know if there are any others I should check out! (Hipstamatic has been on my to-buy list for a while, but it's already so ubiquitous and the rebel in me wants to find something more obscure to play with...)
Pros: Instagram is like Twitter for photos. You take a pic, choose a filter, then it shows up on a news feed along with other users' photos that you choose to follow.
Cons: Most of the filters are pretty extreme - sometimes it's hard to find exactly what you're looking for, especially if you're dealing with skin tones.
*if you download Instagram my username is helloerin - search for me!
Pros: ShakeIt is simple. Take a picture, shake your phone around to develop it (in the words of the André 3000, shake it like a polaroid picsha), et voila! No fuss and the results have a nice contrast without any crazy color filters!
Cons: Less versatility than Instagram.
Pros: There are settings on CrossProcess that I haven't quite figured out how to manipulate yet, but the results are more professional-looking than the others and the rectangle format is a nice option.
Pros: I love the contrast that I got in these pictures of the sky and Jimmy and I were both amazed at how skinny it made us look. No yellow filters to deal with, so you never run the risk of looking like an Oompa Loompa.
I'm taking Saturday off, but I'll be back on Sunday!
