Hipstamatic’s Oggl for iPhone Competes with Instagram by Facebook

Instragram by Facebook has been a total success among people who enjoy taking photos. While it is enjoying the popularity leaving other photo apps behind, there is this new photo app that seems to be making a name on the niche, the Oggl.

According to Ryan Dorshorst and Lucas Buick, Hipstamatic co-founders, this iPhone app is “a community for creative people to capture and curate their lives through photography.”

Inspired by the idea of “capture-first” shooting like any other photo app, Hipstamatic’s Oggl utilizes films and lenses and allows a user to edit the photo after shooting. There is the mainstream edits and tweaking of the photo for different looks or “tap to preview” effects which is quite interesting.

After editing the photo to your satisfaction, the user can share the photos to Oggl profile and make a story out of it. It can also be shared on other platforms such as Facebook, Tumble, Twitter, Flickr, and etc.

On the app’s official release, Oggl will be free for download from the Apple App store. The app will come with 5 situational shooting modes such as sunsets, landscapes, food, night, and portraits. For more features, you can subscribe for $9.99 a year or 99 cents a month to access the film gears and lenses options. Aside from those options, the subscription will also allow the users to access the entire catalog of Hipstamatic.

    Facebook buys up all newcomers who are trying to compete with them. It is not a good development, the lastest was: WhatsApp.
