Hipstamatic Oggl – Updated And Free Download For All – Battery Improvements

Oggl is now available to download from the App Store for all, when it was first released by the developers of Hipstamatic it was by invitation only. It’s an app with a social presence, allowing you to capture and create images and share throughout the community.

It has just had its first update and perhaps the most sought after improvement users wanted was a decrease in battery drain – with this update, that issue has gone – according to the developers at least, please give us your feedback.

In addition to the battery improvements, it is now possible to add an artist statement to your profile. There’s a tap-hold to focus setting allowing you to tap and hold anywhere in the frame to set the focus of your image. There’s Tap-Drag to Set Exposure – allowing you to tap and drag to separately set the exposure. There’s Double Tap to Love Photos in the Feeds – faster way to spread the love.

If you’re a Hipstamatic Classic lover you may be interested to know that there is an update in the works, you can expect bug fixes and the ability to share directly to Oggl and even some new gear.

Joanne Carter, creator of the world’s most popular mobile photography and art website—— TheAppWhisperer platform has been a pivotal cyberspace for mobile artists of all abilities to learn about, to explore, to celebrate and to share mobile artworks. Joanne’s compassion, inclusivity, and humility are hallmarks in all that she does, and is particularly evident in the platform she has built. In her words, “We all have the potential to remove ourselves from the centre of any circle and to expand a sphere of compassion outward; to include everyone interested in mobile art, ensuring every artist is within reach”, she has said. Promotion of mobile artists and the art form as a primary medium in today’s art world, has become her life’s focus. She has presented lectures bolstering mobile artists and their art from as far away as the Museum of Art in Seoul, South Korea to closer to her home in the UK at Focus on Imaging. Her experience as a jurist for mobile art competitions includes: Portugal, Canada, US, S Korea, UK and Italy.

Pioneering the world’s first mobile art online gallery - has extended her reach even further, shipping from London, UK to clients in the US, Europe and The Far East to a global group of collectors looking for exclusive art to hang in their homes and offices. The online gallery specialises in prints for discerning collectors of unique, previously unseen signed limited edition art. Her journey towards becoming The App Whisperer, includes (but is not limited to) working for a paparazzi photo agency for several years and as a deputy editor for a photo print magazine. Her own freelance photographic journalistic work is also widely acclaimed. She has been published extensively both within the UK and the US in national and international titles.
