From the time camera phones have been around, there has been no shortage of armature photographers. We all love taking photos with our phones. Whenever we are out or even sitting at home, as soon as a moment worth being captured presents itself, we immediately capture it in our little mobile devices.
It’s the same with iPhone users. The large touch screen and the great camera and the iPhoto app just make it more fun. We all agree with that I’m sure, but i can also tell that we agree on another thing when it comes to iPhones default camera app. The iOS’s camera app is slow. I mean, by the time the app loads and focuses on the image and by the time you click the shutter button to capture the picture, the moment would be gone. That is frustrating.
This is where Polaroid Instant Cam comes to the rescue and it seems to do a pretty nice job at that.
InstantCam works well because it takes full use of the touch functionalities of the iPhone, the swipe and tap actions which we are all familiar with. To capture an image, we just have to tap the screen, and to turn on or turn off the flash, we just swipe. InstantCam works even better in the app’s burst mode. In this mode, we can set the app to start taking photos as soon as the app is turned on and continue taking photos till we stop it. We even have options to set the speed at which the photos are shot, slow, medium or fast. Are you wondering how the photos are saved at higher speeds since it takes some time to save an individual image in the library? Now, here is how the app achieves this. The app saves the images in the memory during shooting and writes it on the Camera Roll only after you have closed the app. That is amazing. It’s a shame that Apple’s Camera app is not up to the job, but at least there is an app which does the job. Polaroid Instant Cam is available in the App Store for just $0.99.
