Hipstamatic's subscription-based photo filter app is now publicly available on iTunes, a few weeks after its invite-only launch. Oggl is a free download, and you get five of its parent app's virtual lenses and films that you can mix and match to concoct your own filters from the get-go -- it also lets you edit a photo's effects after you've taken it. But if you find its small selection of lenses and films limiting and you'd prefer to have the whole enchilada (read: all Hipstamatic filters), you've got to part with $2.99 per quarter or $9.99 per year. No word yet on whether an Android version is in the works, but a preview of the app shown at the Nokia Lumia 925 launch event indicates that it's on its way to Windows Phone 8.

Hipstamatic has updated itself with their new Oggl photography app that brings new shortcuts to make photosharing as simple as a couple of clicks. Some of the new features include a simple 'tap-and-hold' technique to focus, an easy drag to set the exposure and a snappy double-tap to love photos. Oggl is a “capture-first” shooting experience that uses Hipstamatic’s beautiful lenses and films and comes with five pre-loaded 'favorites' for situational shooting - landscape food, portrait, nightlife and sunset. For the first time ever, you can now edit a photo after it has been taken so that you can experiment with different looks and then simply tap it to preview how it will look before you take your shot. Share your best photos to your Oggl profile to curate your personal story or browse the...
