The features and results of this app pale in comparison with the awesome Hipstimatic. What people really want is post-processing ability in the Hipstimatic. This app is an attempt to satisfy that demand, but falls short. Forget the purity of your concept and give the public what they want -- add post processing to Hipstimatic!

5/5 stars

As a huge nerd for all things having to do with Black and White...

This just became one of my most used iphone apps again for photos I post on flickr. I taken and tend to process a lot of photos with the iphone and while I like the Fresh Baked Donuts and Grumplestiltskin forumula it was always the noir chemical and Blackout forumula I really loved this application for (makes your photos b/w)...it does fantastic b/w on your photos and while I feel the best app for b/w is Vint B/W, swankolab pretty much replaces that for me. I tend to use this and monochrome (and PhotoFX) if I am doing b/w. Anyway the newest update fixes the bug glitch that prevented me from using this for sometime. Anyway great app, I highly recommend it, I use this way more than Hipstamatic, which is a fantastic app in itself but I like a lot more control to be given to post processing and not be stuck with a photo I don't have a lot of choice with after the fact.

Are you kidding me with these glowing reviews?!...I've mixed numerous combinations of chemicals and they all pretty much are disappointing, very little if any difference between effects.

I'll stick to your other app Hipstamatic or other apps such as Infinicam or PictureShow as I love the effects those apps produce.

This app needs to be updated with a better variety of effects.
