ShakeItPhoto | iPhone photography app review

ShakeItPhoto could be one of my favorite apps for the iPhone. It costs $.99 and it's worth every penny. I use it practically every day. It takes photos taken with iPhone and turns them into Polaroids. I like this app more than other Polaroid apps which are available for free like Polarize because it doesn't have the bar at the bottom for writing notes. You can add text at the bottom of the photo in Polarize but since I have a personal preference to square photos (maybe since I shoot a lot of 120 film in real life), I like ShakeItPhoto better.

The great thing about this app is that you can use photos previously taken with the iPhone instead of just being able to take photos within the app. Since the app takes photos already on the iPhone, any photo can be edited. Only one of the photos used in this review was taken with the iPhone (it was taken with the Hipstamatic app). Two were taken with a Sony point and shoot, one is an iPhone wallpaper, and one is a scan of my fiancé when he was 10.

It's a fun yet simple app that I think is a must buy. It even makes the sound like Polaroid cameras and you have to shake the phone to make the photo develop faster. I give the app 5 out of 5 stars.
