Mar 5, 2012 11:26 AM –
Hipster is a cool picture postcard creator and sharing app. Simply take a snap or upload from your gallery. Add text, edit and add a cool filter and share! You can share across your Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Flickr and Foursquare. Simple to use and with some very cool effects, Hipster is a neat way to share postcards and picture messages on your Android device.
Tested on: HTC Desire HD
Pros & Cons:
- Create and send picture postcards plus share them!
- Nice range of filters and text options!
- Nice, easy to use UI!
- Innovative and fun way to share!
- Sharing in-app is limited to social networks, no email or MMS (picture messages).
Hipster is a pretty cool little app that lets you share your ‘where’. All you need to do it take a picture, add some text; perhaps the location or a message and share away on either Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Tumblr or Foursquare. I was a little disappointed to see that you can’t share via MMS or email but you can get round this by the fact the pictures are saved to your gallery, so you can share in other ways manually from there. The social element to the service lets you view posted pictures from various parts of the world and see popular posts locally and globally.
There’s a nice selection of themes to choose from and you can resize the image by cropping. You can also tag friends in the picture itself, ideal if posting to social networks like Facebook. All these functions are performed within a cosy and polished user interface that looks very cool. The filters/themes reminded me a little of those you find in apps like Lightbox Photos, Streamzoo and Pixlr-o-matic. Although there aren’t as many in Hipster, if you’ve used these services it will feel very familiar.
I have enjoyed playing with Hipster- it’s lots of fun and boasts a superb UI which is intuitive and very user friendly. Sharing is made very easy and almost in real-time you can share your location via a neat little app. I liked the way pictures you upload from your gallery will automatically put locale text into them as this saves time and is pretty smart. There are floods of photo sharing apps available, Streamzoo and Lightbox Photos personally stand out for me, but Hipster kinda fills a niche application that is similar to Snapr and Trover only perhaps even simpler and easier to use while on-the-go. Definitely check it out.

Ease of Use:
Blissfully easy, it takes only a few seconds to take a picture, then theme it, add text and share. The interface is incredibly easy to use and simple to navigate.
This depends on what kind of social bunny you might be. It is easily something you could use several times a day if you were inclined to do so.
The interface is very polished and a joy to use. A genuinely qualitative and stable experience.
