Polaroidness

I recently came across this fun new app called "Poladroid" that color shifts your digital photos into that classic liquid crystal tone. I've never been a fan of those "one click photo filters" but this one does such a decent job, its worth trying out. Its interactive too, so you actually click and shake the polaroid to develop your nostalgia. While fun and interactive the first few times, it becomes a bit of a chore and reminds me of the photos I used to take as an impatient kid. Anyways, here's a few that I have tried. Some pictures work better than others depending on their initial contrast/hue and saturation. You can get the app here. Plus they have a flickr group here, so you can upload your photos to a gallery.
