Polamatic App – Polaroid Photography for the Digital Age

I am in photo nirvana at this moment.

I found the most incredible photo app today just by happenstance. It is called Polamatic and it is created by none other than Polaroid.

It is the perfect blend between modern digital photography and classic Polaroid style.

The app allows users to create a retro photo by either shooting a new picture or use an existing one from their library, adding a  frame, applying a filter and/or caption.

I am having so much fun!

There are 12 frames with names like “crumpled,” “tape,” and “kinda new.”  The app also features 12 photo effects for customization allowing users to apply a number of color and tone adjusting effects to their pictures.  And of course, you can add text to your Polaroid picture, even choosing from 12 different fonts.

Another unique feature of the app is the ability to easily share the photo via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Flickr, Tumblr or email, making it a must for bloggers and social media enthusiasts who want to add this classic style to their posts.

I purchased a couple of additional frame formats and effects to add to my options… because I am obsessive like that. This app sells for $1.99 and in my opinion, is well, well worth it.
