Lo-mob for iPhone review

Vintage cameras can produce a variety of looks for photographs. By combining different format cameras and film types, you can create artistic effects. Lo-Mob allows you to create these lo-fi photo effects on your iPhone.

Using Lo-mob is simple. After launching the app, you open a photo from your camera roll – or take one from within the app if you’re using an iPhone – and Lo-mob immediately generates a preview list of all filters. The preview shows you a thumbnail of the look you can expect, plus a short description of each filter. The filters are broken down by film and camera type. You can choose from over 30 filter effects, ranging from Classic Vintage (a Holga-type look) to 35mm Film Experimentation (with virtual film sprockets showing on the edges).

Lo-mob creates a preview of each filter immediately. When you find one you’d like to try, simply tap to create a full-size preview.

At this point, if you’re happy with the result, you can save the photo directly to the camera roll or share it via email as well as to Facebook and Flickr.



OUR VERDICT

If you like the idea of experimenting with the iPhone photos you take, Lo-mob gives you a lot of lo-fi options. By adding retro effects, you’ll be able to give your photos a vintage feel and quickly create pictures that appear as though they were taken with a classic old camera instead of a start-of-the-art smartphone.
