Instamaton (69p)
Instamaton on the app store

I downloaded this for free over the weekend, but it's now available on the app store for 69p. So what does it do and is it worth it?

Instamaton is a very basic app that lets you create a strip of photos like those that you would get in an old fashioned photo booth:



The good thing about the app is that it allows you to export a photo strip or a photo square depending on your preference. The bad thing about the app is that it has a tendency to crash and the 9 built-in filters aren't that great. (I took my photos with the native camera, edited in Photoshop and then applied a split tone effect in Film Lab).



You do get a selection of 9 frames, but I can't really see the point in the variety of colours, as only the white border gives the authentic photobooth look.

Verdict 2½/5 - A serviceable photobooth app but unless this becomes free again, go for Pocketbooth (any iPhone) or IncrediBooth (iPhone 4 only) instead.
