Analog Camera for iPhone resembles the simplistic, gesture based UI of Clear for iPhone, featuring soft square or rectangle buttons that pop up upon contact and prompt fun, clever sounds.
Check out my observations of the app and a teaser video below:
Photo capture is built right into Analog Camera, of course, and a whimsical tone chimes through a progression as each photo is taken. The jingle is similar to the sound cued when marking off a task in Clear.
Touching each filter square pops up a larger view of how your filtered photo will appear. This effect is familiar if you have ever moved pieces around a Letterpress board on your iPhone or iPad.
Analog Camera allows you to take photos, apply filters, and save to your Camera Roll, but you can also import photos and apply filters to pictures you have already taken. Analog Camera is a fair counterpart to Analog for Mac with its support for importing and exporting.
Sharing is front and center in Analog Camera with colorful share buttons for Facebook and Twitter prominently featured in the same view where filters are previewed and applied. You can share filtered photos over Instagram, Path, Evernote, email, and more directly within the app.
Analog Camera should enhance Instagram, not replace it; social is built-in by way of sharing rather than building a system for following users and locking your photos up within the app. Its makers encourage users to tag their photos with #analogcamera on Twitter and Instagram, where users can follow news updates and photo examples of Analog Camera.
Realmac Software was able to offer a modern approach the to-do list with an admiral level of charm and personality. Analog Camera appears to have delightfully applied that friendly coat of paint to iPhone photography.
