These days, a phone is more than a communicator...quite simply, it's your life. In that cool, sleek package are your thoughts, deals, memories, photos, plans, social network, maps, banks, stocks, news links, video clips, trip trackers, music, exercise regimes, first aid...it goes on and on...and on. If you're a gamer, you can disappear endlessly into that realm...if you're a photographer - amateur or professional - you can play with apps that help create beautiful images and even encourage new and interesting ways of looking at things.The Hipstamatic App is just such a plaything. With it installed on your iPhone, you can dabble in the Dali-esque...return to the fun/flair of the 60s...experiment with super-saturated colour, black & white or muted, flecked silver & grey...it's like being given a magic box that will capture images as you command...what a trip! If you haven't already acquired this little baby, do so, and have some artistic fun.
