Polaroid released the popular iPad application called Instant Camera for iPhone users, too.
The Polaroid Instant Camera app, previously available on Macs and iPads, can now be downloaded by iPhones users. Although it is compatible with all iPhones from 3GS or above, and all iPod Touch 3rd-gen or above, the company says that the software works best with the iPhone 5.
Apply instant film effects to your photos
Polaroid’s application gives users the possibility to add special filters and a class border to write custom text on it. This will create an authentic Polaroid instant image, lest it should bring back all the good memories, when users were making use of the company’s instant cameras.
iPhone users can take a photo directly from the app and add filters to it, or they can add the same effects to the pictures already found in the image gallery. According to the company, the application is replicating the processes in real-time with visual and sound effects, meaning that the users will need to wait for the photos to be “developed.”
After taking a photo, iPhone and iPod Touch owners will see an undeveloped Polaroid film, and during the photographic process, sound effects will keep the owners busy.
The Polaroid Instant Camera supports no less than 30 effects, 10 of them being exclusively developed by Polaroid. Users can adjust filters such as emulsion, intensity, grain, and vignette, while choosing from 10 fonts, waiting to be added to the class border. There are up to 26 class border colors and effects, including fingerprint, stain, and wrinkles.
iPhone users can re-size and rotate the text using gestures. The same thing can be said about the visual effects like vignetting, which creates an authentic Polaroid look. The photos can be shared on social networking websites like Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter, Instagram, Flickr, and China’s Twitter-like service called Sina Weibo.
The Polaroid Instant Camera app version 1.0.2 is now available for download at the iTunes Store. The file is sized at 21MB, and it is available in several languages, including English, French, Italian, and Spanish. It can be downloaded by iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad users for the price of $0.99.
