    "A neat app that's bound to get a lot of nostalgia love. I'm having fun with it, even though I'm not really a polaroid enthusiast. It still makes me feel a little warm and fuzzy, though. "

    "Instant is one of the best known apps used to give pictures a Polaroid-type feel, and it appears this reputation is rightfully deserved. It doesn't quite make pictures look exactly like analog ones, but it's a pretty close replication, all things considered. Using the app is definitely more convenient than the authentic but hardly hassle-free alternative."

    "One of the coolest aspects about polaroid cameras was how the pictures turned out. I wanted to bring that style back in my photographs so I found an app that could give me the same effects. Camera+ is a really in depth app and it allows anybody to edit their photos to look like polaroids. I love it."

    "There are only a limited number of polaroid borders to choose from but it's still worthy to note that polax makes ordinary images stand out more than usual because the borders look realistic."

    "Vintage photography has always been something I loved. I tried to apply some polaroid borders using the Instagram app and could not figure out how to get this border filter applied. Safe to say it was no use at all."
