Polamatic App by Polaroid™ (AppaDana)— Brings back the instant Polaroid magic (and hopefully set-off an app war with Instagram/FaceBook?)

Polamatic is an officially licenced iOS app from Polaroid: awesome. Read more on this: Polaroid Polamatic™ Mobile Application for iOS

Wouldn't it be great if Polaroid, as well as now having it's own iOS photography app, also had it's own sharing network? A network that could instantly and realistically compete with Instagram and would likely see quite a significant take-up by Instagramers.

Polamatic is a great looking app and has some lovely features. The main one being each photo is based around the physical Polaroid prints with the thick white borders. One has a selection of scanned -in, not computer generated, Polaroid frames as well as the requisite filters with more options available as in-app store purchases.

It just feels so right to be using a faux Polaroid branded iOS app.

Your photo can be shared directly with Instagram, Flickr, Twitter, Tumblr and FaceBook. I have already placed Polamatic next to Instagram on my iPhone home screen.

Polamatic only costs £0.69 as well and you can download it via iTunes: Polamatic | Made in Polaroid

From PR NEwsWire: Offered by Appadana Development, an authorized Polaroid licensee, the Polamatic app brings back the instant magic of Polaroid pictures to mobile devices. Users may select from 12 frames with clever names like "tape," "crumpled" and "kinda new." Unlike other photo editing applications, the frames are not computer generated. Instead, they are high quality scans of new, used, and vintage Polaroid Classic Border frames, giving pictures a unique classic style.

The app also features 12 photo effects for customization with fun names like "chroma," "gelatin" and "pyrophoric." The photo effects allow users to apply a number of color and tone adjusting effects to their pictures. Whether users wish to apply sepia tones, or a rosy hue, this application has a plethora of effects to choose from. Users may also add text to their Polaroid picture, choosing from 12 different fonts.

Your Polaroid pictures can be saved and easily shared via Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Tumblr or email, making this application a must for bloggers and social media enthusiasts who want to add Polaroid pictures to their visual posts. Users may also save their pictures directly to the iOS photo library, with the tap of a button.

The Polamatic app store allows users to purchase additional frame formats and effects. From the Polaroid Vintage Pack upgrade, users can select an additional 12, authentic, high-resolution scans of Polaroid Classic Border picture frames from multiple eras. For those wishing to add a touch of color to their photos, the Polaroid Chroma Pack upgrade includes 10 colored Polaroid Classic Border picture frames. The Photo Effects upgrade offers 12 added photo effects allowing for more customization options.
