Things have been quiet on the Hipstamatic Oggl front for a few weeks now. The last time we saw an update for the popular photography-filter app was November 19th, which brought with it some fixes and support for 512 MB devices—no small accomplishment.
Today, version 126.96.36.199 rolls out for Oggl and Oggl Pro (Lumia 1020 version) and seeing as that is only an increase from 188.8.131.52, we’re guessing this is some tidying up and minor fixes from the last update.
Indeed, the photo-import feature is still there and more awkward then we’d like but overall, the app has been quite steady for us with these last few builds. (Actually, the 'tap to edit' as seen in the lead image is gone now).

Why choose Oggl? The app is primarily geared as a shoot first, don’t mess with it later app. That’s different from the more typical editor-apps, which are focused on applying fixes after the moment. Because of that, some don’t care for the style of shooting. Having said, the filters are fairly top notch with this app and really give a retro or hipster effect to your images. It’s fun to experiment with and yes, you can even apply them after the image is taken.
Want Oggl? Get it in the Windows Phone Store for Windows Phone 8 devices. Users on the Lumia 1020 will be wanting Oggl Pro, which can also be found here in the Windows Phone Store. QR codes are below, with the Pro version second.
What do you folks think of Oggl? Has it become a go-to photo app or an afterthought?
