Five of the best: Vintage camera apps for Apple’s iPhone

As retro as we all like to be, it's useful to have a modern handset and we're guessing many of you currently use Apple's iPhone. But the iPhone can be retro too, especially when it comes to photography. In fact, there are so many retro camera apps out there, we thought we would sort out the good from the bad.

Specifically, picking out what are, in our opinion, the five best vintage camera apps for the iPhone.


1. Hipstamatic

It's the star of the show, at least in terms of sales. It comes with three rolls of vintage-style film (simulated of course). plus a selection of lenses and flashes for the initial price. Once you're in, you can buy more, as well as share via the social networks and if you love your work lots, you can even order your analogue prints.

It's the market leader for good reason and is easy to use. But unless you start spending, you might get a little bored of the limited options fairly soon.

We like: Ease of use, finished and the options to share.
Not so sure about: Cost of add-ons and how quickly we got tired of the initial set up.

Price: £1.19
