Capture your shots. You can use the rear-facing camera to capture gorgeous landscapes or the front-facing camera to snap a quick selfie. Each photo captures one second of movement, so be ready to go when you tap the button. There are a couple of filters you can select from for a unique look before taking your shot.
View community photos. Viewing photos from other users is part of the fun with this app and you can also follow people in the community to keep up with their pictures. To see the movement, you can either slide your finger side-to-side on the photo or swing your phone slightly. You can even go forward or backward, which is a cool feature.
What is it about?
Live Photos introduced with the iPhone 6s are neat for capturing a moment surrounding a photograph, but what if you could dig a little deeper? That's what Polaroid Swing allows for. The app allows you to quickly capture a one-second moment, apply a live filter, and share it on your Polaroid Swing account where anyone can view it – even if they don't use the app. Polaroid Swing photos are like Live Photos in that they are a short burst of photos, but you can scrub forwards and backwards within them by scrolling, tilting your phone, or moving your cursor if viewing them on the web. They're super fun and interactive.
