1 Hour Photo

If you love being able to take photos whenever and wherever you are with your smartphone but miss the anticipation of waiting for the pictures develop, this app may be for you.

Even if you didn’t know that you missed it, there’s something magical about having to wait to see a photo you’ve taken of something that is probably no longer there to look at – a moment that has passed and is now nothing but a still captured memory.

And without being able to instantly see it and decide to take the shot again and again (we all know you took around 352 selfies before you uploaded that flawless one!), we tend to work that little bit harder to get it right the first time.

With the 1 Hour Photo app, you can recreate this magic by taking a photo and then being forced to wait an hour before it is revealed to you in the style of a vintage black and white film camera.

Useful? Not really – but a nice idea to help remind us that good things come to those who wait, as they say!
