My longtime favorite photo app is Hipstamatic which is continually adding new films and lenses which act as filters. Using the Salvador lens, which has a double exposure effect, made this cloud filled sky above, even more epic.
I loved the result with this simple portrait taken with the same lens and an extra grainy film called "US1776 Monochrome". You can combine any lens with any film and if later you don't like your choice, you can redo it using the editing tool built into the app.
You can also edit photos taken with a regular camera, as I did here. There is a little trick to doing this with the Hipstamatic app. I will upload an image to dropbox from my computer. I also have dropbox on my phone and can then download that photo to my camera roll. However the Hipstamatic app will not see the file for some reason till I open in another app that does, like Color Story and save it from there.
Once I can open it in the Hipstamatic app I can then experiment with different films and lenses, you can also adjust the intensity and add or remove frames. This simply lit portrait becomes more interesting with the edition of the Americana lens and Cano Cafenol film, dialed back about 30%.
