6. Hipstamatic

iTunes link: Hipstamatic

Price: £1.19

The iPhone’s less than fantastic native camera application has lead to a whole load of excellent third party camera apps appearing in the App store. However, most of these try to replicate the look and feel of the native app, while adding in some more advanced features.

This certainly isn’t the approach taken by Hipstamatic. Instead its interface is designed to mimic that of a cheap retro camera and enables you to select from a range of lens, flash types and films to add different effects to the pictures that you capture. The results are certainly quirky, but also look incredibly cool. What’s more, you can also buy additional Hipstapaks via in-app purchasing to add extra effects.

Verdict: Obviously lovingly crafted, Hipostamatic not only looks brilliant and is very easy to use, but also produces very impressive results.

I'm sure you've covered Tunein Radio before. I downloaded it after it appeared in a previous article on this site.

Not sure if you've covered it and it's not new but I couldn't do without Instapaper on my iPod Touch. I no longer keep 30 tabs open while browsing, just quickly bookmark the page and it's ready waiting for me to read whenever I want.
