Hipstamatic Oggl app now available on Nokia Lumia

Today Nokia announced that popular photography app Hipstamatic Oggl is now available, for free, on Nokia Lumia smartphones running Windows Phone 8.

For the first time ever, Nokia brings Hipstamatic Oggl to Windows Phone, with an experience that offers new, creative options for capturing, editing, curating and sharing images.

Catering to a global community of creative minds and photography enthusiasts, Hipstamatic Oggl allows photographers to combine a wide range of “lenses and films,” or filters, in 100s of different ways.

The app comes with 5 pre-set lenses and films that photographers can use to snap and edit photos. Users can then share images on Oggl, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, as well as curate the best work from around the Oggl community.

To get more lens and film gear, users can choose between two subscription options: quarterly for $2.99 or yearly for $9.99, both of which come with access to Hipstamatic’s entire archive of gear. However, Hipstamatic is offering 60 days of complimentary access to users who download the app and create an account by September 9, 2013.

“People are born with the inherent need to tell stories. Photography gives us all the ability to add creative expression to those stories, and smartphones have democratized and completely changed the way we think about photography,” said Lucas Buick, Founder and CEO, Hipstamatic. “Nokia’s continuous innovation around imaging makes them a perfect partner for us. Our collaboration gives photographers a fantastic new tool to capture even more beautiful moments with Nokia’s Lumia devices.”

“Nokia is committed to providing consumers with great imagery apps and we are really excited to work with Hipstamatic who offer best-in-class photographic experiences for their consumers,” said Bryan Biniak, Vice President of Global Partnerships and Developments, Nokia. “Nokia is constantly pushing boundaries in image innovation so we can offer our consumers engaging, interactive experiences that they’ll want to share on Nokia Lumia Windows Phone 8. Our partnership with Hipstamatic is a testimony to our investment in innovative image technology.”
