Reviews From google play store

just an app used for ONLY pictures.. nice black and white filters, but you need to pay for 80% of em.. still slick tho

I use it extensively as it is one of the best app for b&w photography. A few missing point is that you can't zoom in to examine exactly the results of the filters you add. Update! When i open the files i create with this app in my desktop monitor, the quality is horrible.. Even if i use 100% output quality, the layers style is of a low quality and smear all the image! Is good only for smartphones display.

Edit - this app need to take advantage of the new phones with multiple lenes! Really good black and white control. Can capture nice tones and moods using the supplied simulations. The user interface is clunky and not that intuitive. I would suggest to make this a paid app and invest in a better user experience. Export and review functionality is lacking. Still the best B&W Android on the market!

Great B&W photos, but very bad UX. I love the photos I can take with this app, even without any additional filter packs, but the UX is really bad. Viewing photos in gallery, you would expect pressing the OS back arrow to go back to previous screen (camera) but instead quits entire app. In gallery you expect to tap picture to open preview, but only a long press will open. No pinch zoom in preview, touching photo closes preview. Filters can't be applied to existing photos.

Difficult to use. The trendy interface is nice, but horrible UX. Example: Clicking a picture in the Gallery seems to be not working, until I notice it higlights the buttons above the gallery only slightly. The options should be obvious. I think UX should be intuitive and convenient. Do not sacrifice these for aesthetics.

LOVE Hypocam! A black and white photo is not JUST a black and white photo, and Hypocam really shows you the difference. ...and BEFORE you even take the shot. If you want to make your black and white pix stand apart from the rest, Hypocam is the camera app for you. Highly recommend!

Looks great, but confusing in many ways. I bought a bunch of filter sets to support the developer. But it's not clear how to access them, and I think I made duplicate purchases... looks great, tho...

Really like the app. Maybe the metering is not as accurate as I would hope but again, it could be the limitations of the camera processor itself. Thumbs up

Please allow to set the opacity of the textures with a slider (same as filters). I like the pack I bought but as it is they're way too strong to the point of being unusable. I know you can change the blending mode but an opacity slider would be much better. The tap behavior in the gallery is no good... You'd expect single tap to select/open the picture, hold to multi-select. As it is it's confusing. Lack of zoom in the editor is frustrating.

Just started using with the free filters and I'm impressed so far. The UI could do with some streamlining (I keep quitting the app instead of going back) and the gallery is clunky and not integrated into Android (need to be able to share to the app from the Android gallery). Getting there though, please continue the development. Also, why is the aspect ratio not the same as the standard camera?

The camera app is OK. Nothing special. But damn the UI is terrible, why do you have the system back button as an instant exit, come on guys, have you not used a phone app in the last 15 years.

This a really good app! I brought both filter and texture from them. And they're very helpful when I sent an email to them! Can't wait to see what they'll add in the future :)

Tried to do the right thing and contact you by email, but I guess I need to come here and voice my disappointment. I paid for all textures and filters but received none of the textures. Is there a trick to receiving them? When I click on a texture it says 'got it' but I don't have any of them. Can you refund, or better yet tell me how to get the textures?

Takes a little bit to figure out a few things but love the feel of capturing black and white photos the way this app allows you to.

Nice filters with basic editing tools for any BW lovers. Quality of processed image also great. But does have a big memory imprint for cell apps. Will help us all if something can be done about it.

so I really love this app I think that it gives the best most exhilarating contrast between light and dark these black and white photographs are breathtaking and no other app to accomplish this task.

One of the best photo editing app.....good for capturing photos too...it gives you the best b/w images...i dont know why but these filters have something different from other apps..

Love this app! But does anyone know if there is also a color version? I would love to have these filters on color photos as well :)

Nice mono camera and some great presets. Take a bit of time to get used to the button layout but I like it.

I used it on my Samsung Note 9, and gives indisputably better images than my Samsung app in different ranges: accuracy, filters, portrait mode... missing: O1. multiple lens management 02. bookeh effect (with the help of dedicated lens TOF)

Unable to download any of the filters or textures, besides that, it's pretty nice app

no way the app is exceptional and revolutionary, but it has too many bugs in it. I'm using this app on a oneplus 7, and the photo which I export from it, doesn't come out the photo which I edited in the app. please team fix this bug.

I truly like this app and I have bought all filters and textures, however it doesn't have the best interface I hope you can work on that, also I wish i can be able to set a timer but I don't see this choice available.

This new version does not -sync pictures with google photo -the shutter button does not mute -seems nothing works from the settings menu? -dafaq hypocam???

Please provide an option to edit phone gallery pics in Hypocam and option to share multiple pics at a time and also more filters.

I love shooting in BW! Great app. Can't wait to see more editing features.👍

If it has timer I'd give it 5 stars, please add the timer. Other than this it's my favourate b&e cam

Great app but not the best,I had 3.50+ money in my Google money and they didn't accept it so I can get all the filters,so I just had to buy some individually ://

Crisp clean photos, captures light really well.

This app has best engine and render for black and photography. I completed the survey but could not find the free filter pack in return?

I took part in a survey after installing this app again and they promised that they would give a texture pack for free. After the survey I didn’t get the texture pack they promised. Such frauds should be banned.

The menu should be on the bottom part and not on the top part of the screen. That's fundamental stuff .

I didn't found the option for break shots of 3-5 seconds.

Stunningly better B&W photos straight from the take

How do I save multiple photos to drive at once? I tried to select the photos several times but only one pic gets saved to the drive...

Love the cam , more filters ,plz

Impressive pictures! not sure where they are saved yet...

I am at odds w/myself on either giving this app 4 or 5 stars. All I can say is this app takes brilliant pics. I love it!! With this app all you need is the right scene to inspire you, whether your inspiration is the beautiful curves and features of a women, to the beautiful curves and features of mother nature, This app and its additional filters and textures can almost make any amateur photographer look like a pro. I havent tried all filters/textures yet. I will revisit my rating in near future

It is very helpful. If you wish to become a photographer one day. It helps you to click classic photos and in good quality. Some memories to be captured in camera is beautiful and it will be enjoyable

Spent almost $5 on a teclxture pack and it is nowhere in the app....

I love using this application. I would just love to be a bit more user friendly. Some of the clicks are messy. When you press back it's just closing the app when it's in the gallery mode. But overall - lovely options for edits. And good capture.

Huawei p20 pro have a monochrome sensor camera of three. This app can't use that sensor to take photos. This is a big mistake , because this is a black and white camera app! The reason why I need the monochrome sensor it is because can take much sharper images and better iso performance. Please do guys develop that for us? It should be nice if a black and white app can use monochrome camera!

The best black and white photo editing app!

I paid for all filters snd textures and cannot access them. Please make these active or refund my money immediatly. i have sent two messages to your contact email and you have not replied. Either fix this or refund my money or I'm filling a complaint with Google Play. You replied to me with four incomprehensible words. That is not an explination of how to fix the problem.WARNING, DO NOT PAY FOR EXTRA FILTERS/TEXTURES. THEY DON'T WORK, OR AT LEAST THE DEV HASNT BOTHERED TO EXPLAIN. BUYER BEWARE.

Im not an expert in editing pictures. This is a simple app that makes your pictures to different shades of black and white. No ads. If you love black and white pictures alot, then i would suggest ti give this app a try. Good job.

I absolutely love this app! The UI is awsome and the pictures speak for themselves..I am now obsessed with this app and use it all the time....

The black & white and images are good. Everything else is bad. There are no instructions, help, FAQs, nothing to tell you anything about using the app and settings. It has a dead link to the website b/c it's spelled wrong. When you figure that out and get to the site, it isn't formatted for mobile and doesn't render in desktop mode on Chrome either. There is nothing useful there other than some weird image that doesn't load, links for email, two social media accounts, and About. Didn't try the contact links but I'd be shocked if they worked. The About section is some ambiguous blurb about a collective of photographers and their "stories" but good luck finding them b/c guess what, no link or explanation of how. I've been in IT for 20+ years and haven't seen or worked with a single developer who could write good code or software that worked right if they fail at everything else involved with an app. It's as sloppy and mistake ridden as their non-existent attention to detail and work ethic. Obviously I uninstalled it and I don't recommend it. It isn't worth the hassle or time. There are tons of camera apps that are more professional and have support that do B&W very well.

I honestly feel that you are planning to shut this app down. There have been no new updates for a very long time. I love using this app but lately it crashes everytime I open it. And pictures aren't getting saved either. They get saved as blank grey images. If you are shutting down this app then please do it already. And if that is not plan then please do something about the frequent crashes.

The app is promising, but I won't lie, I expected more even after purchasing the filter package but I was unimpressed with how my pictures looked when using some of the filters. Maybe it's my phone or the picture quality, but I just didn't like how the results looked. I requested a refund from Google but they wont allow me the refund so now I'm asking through this review if I can request a refund. Please and thank you!

On the plus side a beautiful silver rich tonality can be obtained (reminiscent of the fibre base photo papers from back in the day). On the downside there's excessive haloing with landscape and suchlike images (eg edges of trees/branches with sky behind). This is highly likely caused by in-app excessive sharpening and/or clarity applied. The halos are not noticeable on low contrast images so I'd like to see sliders built into Hypocam for both sharpening and clarity so one can control the effect. Hypocam has potential ... I just can't use it at this stage due to the haloing issue.

Just love the usage, the way it is built

Can't take photo if you enable cam2api

Deducted 1 star just for the interface. Interface as is simple and good but one has to long press to open a pic and normal touch to delete. Kindly do change it.

app takes great photos, but it works is non-intuitive and have bugs. Sometimes applied filter make change to photo, it shows in previews in the gallery oka, but then you open photo again, it opens without filter. I don't understand how to use albums and gallery functional. Why i can't open image in full size and why images open by long press not double tap. Why photos not load into phone gallery by default and I must export it (two same files in memory) Some freezes even on top smartphone

Interesting experience 😀 no issues with the app, and, I've enjoyed working with Hypocam will definitely be using this again in the near future.

It's a nice app, just wish there were a timer on, please add a timer for front and rear camera.

a bit of uncharted territory,inline help wise. app crashes sometimes, but that's not unexpected after a rewrite. took me 5 minutes to find myself familiar with the controls after that it was pure joy to photograph everything. nice textures and filter. recommended purchases: all filter, all textures. both for ~10€ at time of writing. best this side of Adobe lightroom.

It's a really Cool photo app! It makes great pictures and makes smartphone photography rather fun. You can easily tweek photos with light and sharpeness. Furthermore, the filter packages is really nice (you can quickly further optimise your photos). Currently, I am considering buying the additional texture package as well.

So far, I'm very impressed with the app for shooting monochrome images. Using the various filters and textures that I purchased are also easy to apply. Although, you have to touch symbols in the app to see exactly what each symbol represents and allows you to do, I did not find this to be an issue. I haven't found anything I don't like, and with a bit of time in the app, it is enjoyable to use.

Almost there. As well as being a decent camera app it's great for converting photos in to B&W photos, but the lack of integration stops it from being efficient. I would much rather use my own gallery to look at my photos and then be able to "share" to the app. The integrated gallery view is laggy and static. Use the Android default to select images would have been more elegant. I like the simplistic interface in the other sections though. So 2,9 stars.

Its an awesome app for bw photos. I love the look and the layout. in reference to the filters. i am disappointed of not able to purchase the all filters pack. Nothing happens when I press on OK got it... And this is the case with few other individual filters too...only few show the google play payment window. others are not responsive.

Very powerful mono camera. Fantastic results. Id love to give 5 stars however as good as the user interface looks, its isnt particularly intuitive and using outdoors in daylight makes it even more fiddly. Make it more user friendly and it gets 5 stars. Still one of the best photography apps you'll find on Android. Just not quite perfect.

New update, new review : this app is getting close to perfect. So much fun with it, and unforgettable B&W experience. I'm a photographer and this is just great, neat software and functionality. Keep it up and thanks for the good work. Development ideas : - mason grid gallery instead of the square one (not everybody captures square.) - ability to flick pictures while in edit mode (would prevent going back and forth through the gallery)

It's a nice monochrome camera. But there are some issues: the back button closes the app instead of going back to the previous page (bad UX) and the UI isn't explained (a help page would be welcome), also I have no idea how to apply textures despite having bought the full pack (if it is behind the + symbol in the filters bit at the bottom of the screen then it's not working for me)

No zoom in the editing mode. It's crucial to see 100% magnification, 1:1. Also agree with some user below who said it's often counterintuitive, that long taps showing the originals without filters, I don't know. Make it possible to autostart the edit mode instead of the camera for those who would like to use it just for bw filtering. Will change my vote when fixed, of course. So far decent results, nice app to have, thanks.

ok. its very useful to me being an Artist illustrator. very simple and easy to use......for me it helps a lot specially on my drawings, charcoal portraits..etc.. i' ll give you a rate of 5

I love B/W images & this app doesn't disappoint. Images look professional. i bought all the filters etc but it doesn't look like i got all of them even after i bought both packs 😒

Hey, you guys are doing a great job but please figure out a way to switch to wide angle camera on my Samsung A50.

Not a big deal. Shadow tool does next to nothing, contrast and brightness don't work deeply into the image, no sharpening tool, no clone, heal, or denoise. Not impressed in the least. Filters do very little. Much more impressed with ToolWiz Photos. Not saying much, unfortunately.

Great b&w photo app with the ability to adjust contrast+brightness on the fly. You can also add guidelines easily, turn on/off flash, and more. Overall a great photo app and pics come out in fantastic quality. I use it for overlays and just general b&w.

Awesome and easy to use. Takes great photos and good set of filters. no ads and no distractions. A couple of suggeations: 1. ability to view photos in full screen in gallery 2. ability to hide the filters i dont like to use frequently, and arrange order of filters. highly recommended app.

Well with this experience when I have this app was amazing. Because mostly I did black and white pictures since the beginning of the year 2017. And I still come with a long run. Of doing videos like that on Instagram so let's help me to be an individual to doing things on my own and to get it to any have in my mind to do.

Amazing picture quality , contrast is amazing, just the app gallery needs to be a little user friendly

Probably the best black and white app available. Ive used this in place of my little Ricoh GR while in Japan and creates a book. I love this app, combined with a decent phone it's spectacular for my off the cuff urban shooting. If it could produce raw files that would be the icing on the cake.

the app is created for with a beautiful purpose but needs some more tweeks. For ex: there is a tonne of difference in the photo the view finder shows and when the image is saved(this is not fair, i want to save the pic I see when clicking on it). pixel 3

Hi Hypocam Team, Loved the app for a while now but since the revamp I cannot zoom on my Pixel 3 XL. The volume rocker button takes photos when it used zoom and finger gestures simply swipe to other 'pages' on each side. Very annoying and so any help/ advice would be appreciated. Cheers

I purchased the all texture pack But i am not able to use it

Great app that focuses on black and white photography, nice clean interface. My only complaint is it not supporting RAW photos, it would make it a well rounded app Would be happy to pay a one off fee for such a feature.

Whilst I do like this app and wish to continue using, especially after having spent money on some of the filter and texture packages, I am experiencing problems with being able to view my edited photos. They show up as edited in the preview but when I hold down the photo to view my edit, it only shows the original photo.

I have not explored anything further than taking pictures but absolutely love the black and white! Able to choose quality of photos, create albums and other things that seem simple to navigate. Cool retro looking pics! Thanks to the developers...

Lots of 5 star "Google User" reviews... While the filters are pretty amazing the user interface is bloody awful, and it only saves photos inside the app, not in your phone storage, not in your sd card, not even in your phones gallery.

Ah, this is one of the best app for photography seriously some serious work has been done for this app. This is the smoothest app I have ever used for photography. They just should add some more options for photo. This application should be editor's choice.

Great! would thouroughly recommend to anyone looking for a black and white camera!

Great app, good settings straight in camera before shooting, anyhow, I'd love to see support for raw dng images for further developing rather than coping with jpegs as well as importing images from the native camera app or syncing with my dslr. There's also quite noticeable lag on the image view.

This is great but takes a few moments to click photos.

i liked it at first, it was a superb app for taking lineart pictures, but now, with the new layout and update, the quality suddenly drop and all I can see is mushy lines. details are not clear and it's not good with good lighting either.

There are differences between what the picture is before taking and once its saved which is one thing what a camera app shouldn't do. i want to save the pic i see when clicking on the shutter button, not some extra processed photo. pixel 3

The best photography app on PlayStore, for sure!!! The filters are wonderful, the ease of experience is so remarkable that it sets a standard for all the photography apps out there. Simply the best!

I really love this app. From now on I can edit my picture like an old photos.

If you are into street photography, and at times you forget to carry or camera. This will help you with it! Only if you get the filters, they are worth exploring!!

I have started to use this application on a regular basis ..the range of black and white variations are diverse and awesome.and are will be using it to create an up coming journey log to Scotland

Really nice app, been searching for something like this for a long time. Filters give a nice sad boy vibe, or a little grunge to the photos, 10/10 would suggest.

Filters purchase bug. It was showing 2.99 in the offer, but the price was 3.19 at checkout. Also, the default filters won't apply when taking a photo, only when applied from gallery. Please fix both issues.

its really cool. I took a picture of my cat, and it looked like it was sitting in heavenB-). lol. i love it! great app! reccomend to install it!

Great interface design - especially color filters

I LOVE THIS APP. gives my photographs such an authentic retro look which I couldn't get with any other apps. Could do with a little more filters but either way - 5 stars. Thank you for this app.

Really enjoying the results of this app. It's a little annoying that the flip camera button is so close to the shutter release.

It's like capturing another dimension. Ok not quite that dramatic. Yet it helps to create classic memories, that at times are deeper than what color shows. It's good for what it's made for.

It's a good app. I am enjoying it. Hope you'll also.

it might not be the best yet but it is improving... but the real strong point of this great app is the freedom that it enables as tool of learning, a tool to discover what photography is...!
