Hipstamatic, an iPhone photography app that’s similar to Instagram, released an iPad magazine last week called Snap. The monthly showcases the best user-submitted photos. They have been doing that for some two years now, but with Snap they have a format that will reach more than just their own social media followers.
Snap Magazine, for iPad only, is divided into eight sections. Cultured is all about hipster lifestyle and street photography. Obsessed is for dedicated followers of fashionistas, celebs and other trends.
Situation has images from users on the front lines from protestors to random odd sightings, while Hip Stop looks at art, urban pop culture and hot spots. There is ever a section called Aventure in Hipstaland, which is based on Hipstamatic’s Facebook travel page. Slash is sort of a catch all and Lensed showcases actual photographer’s strutting their stuff.
The section that may be most helpful for growing a readership has a titillating name: Climax promises to to cover all “the unspeakable pivotal issues,” foremost amongst them, sex.
Snap Magazine is live in the App Store and available now.
