Hipstamatic Disposable is Synthetic Corp's new photography app that brings a new twist to the idea of a social photography. With Hipstamatic Disposable, you take pictures as if you have a roll of film and you can't see the photos until the film gets "developed". However, you can share this roll of film with your friends so that they can contribute to the photos taken on the film. Once the film is used up, it gets developed and all the contributors have access to all the photos. Oh, and did I mention that the photos get processed with filters that Synthetic Corp is famous for?
I both love and hate this app. I love the concept, absolutely love it. It's going to be fun to share rolls of film on Christmas since about 8 of us have an iPhone or iPod touch and can contribute to taking pictures. But I hate how much of the screen is taken up by the graphics of a camera. It's kind of cool, but not practical. I need a bigger viewfinder, not a shutter button that takes up half the screen! I also hate the in-app purchase system. I am more than happy to purchase new cameras that use different filters, but Synthetic Corp requires that you buy rolls of film so that you have to continue making purchases if you want to take more pictures. It's $0.99 for a 9 pack, $1.99 for a 36 pack, and $4.99 for a 99 pack.
