Polaroid is pleased to introduce Polamatic, a new photo & video application that combines digital photo effects with frames in the format of the Polaroid Classic Border Logo. With the Polamatic 1.0 application, users can shoot a new picture or use an existing one from their photo library, add a Polaroid Classic Border frame, apply a filter, write a caption, and then share a unique, retro photo. Polamatic combines today’s mobile camera technology with the classic look of a Polaroid picture. When taking a new picture, users may control the flash, grid, front or rear camera, and timer settings with the tap of a button.
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.
“Bring back all of the magic of Polaroid pictures on your iPhone,” stated Appadana Development’s Dana Shakiba. “Polamatic makes your pictures come alive with classic Polaroid style.”
