The brand new Hipstamatic Oggl app is now available, free, for your Nokia Lumia 928, Lumia 925, Lumia 920, and Lumia 820 from the Windows Phone Store.
So, what is it and why do you want it?
Hipstamatic Oggl is an exciting photography app that offers new, creative options for capturing, editing and sharing images.
It allows photographers to combine various “lenses and films,” or filters, in 100s of different ways. A particular lens affects the look and feel of the photo, while films change the photo’s border, or in some cases turns a color photo into black and white.
The app comes pre-set with five lenses and five films. However, photographers can access Hipstamatic’s entire archive of “camera gear,” (lenses and films) as well as get new gear each month via two subscription options: $2.99 for three months or $9.99 for an entire year.
As part of their exciting new launch for Nokia Lumia phones, Hipstamatic is offering a 60 day free trial of the entire “camera gear” archive for people who download the app and create an account before September 9, 2013.
In addition to helping photographers capture and create stunning photos, Hipstamatic Oggl lets you share them to the Oggl network, as well as Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and coming soon, Foursquare, Tumblr and Flickr.
But if getting more creative with your photos is one major draw, the next alluring detail is that the app itself looks absolutely amazing — it pushes the operating system’s design interface further than ever, and is virtual eye candy as you swipe through the app’s features and options.
Bryan Biniak, who heads up developer partnerships at Nokia, said that working with Hipstamatic was further evidence that:
Nokia is constantly pushing boundaries in image innovation so we can offer our consumers engaging, interactive experiences that they’ll want to share on Nokia Lumia Windows Phone 8.
Nokia and Hipstamatic are also teaming up on a special app experience built exclusively for the new Nokia Lumia 1020 – on sale in the U.S. beginning today. Leveraging the industry-leading imaging capabilities of the Lumia 1020, the Hipstamatic Oggl PRO app features an experience fully integrated into the camera, offering you more control than ever when snapping photos on a smartphone.
Hipstamatic Oggl PRO includes a variety of exclusive features, including manual exposure control, white balance, ISO, and shutter speed, as well as an auto-level indicator and high-quality zoom. And of course, the app packs all of the original Oggl features, including five pre-set lenses and films, and the ability to easily snap, edit, and share via social channels.
