Since it first arrived for iPhone/iPod touch in 2009, Hipstamatic has been the go-to app for creating beautiful photos using hundreds of different effects. Now the folks behind the app, Synthetic, have introduced Snap, a new monthly magazine available now for Newsstand. Called a “monthly snapshot of the world through the lens of Hipstamatic,” Snap Magazine is geared for the more artistic type of photographer. Best of all, each issue is absolutely free. In addition to providing a healthy dose of vintage-style photography from Hipstamatic users, Snap explores lifestyle and culture, as well as popular trends. In its first issue, Snap includes articles on Eric Victorino and his use of the Internet for creative expression, how to make a "bangin" mix tape, and San Francisco's "tattoo royalty," and more.
