Boomerang by Instagram

A cult favourite, Boomerang by Instagram aims to make “everyday moments fun and unexpected”.

You can access it through the App Store (available on both Android and iPhone) or you can use it directly on Instagram. Boomerang is a quick and easy solution to making your photos different however it is widely used by many people, so you may want to opt for an app that’s slightly more unique! As there are no additional features added to the app’s update, its very easy to use and understand.

Huji Cam

Get ready to take a step back into the 90’s with this nostalgic camera app! ““HUJI Cam makes your moments as precious as the feelings of analog film with old memories.” The app achieves this effect with different overlays on the photo (sometimes making it blurry as can be seen below to give it an “aged” effect). You can also adjust your photos by adding a date and time stamp to make it look more authentic! You can take photos and save them on the app directly, making it super easy to use. Try out the app if you want to experiment with the look of your photos and turn them into “disposables” without the wait!
