This doesn't seem like an April's fool prank to me -- the app is available in the iTunes store. If you want your photos to look even more retro than what Instagram can deliver, 1-Bit Camera promises to give your images a look reminiscent of early Macintosh computers. Check out their gallery here.
GOTHENBURG, Sweden, Mars 28, 2012. -- In an age of ever-increasing megapixels and bit depth it is now painfully clear; It is not the number of pixels that matters, but the quality of those individual pixels!
1-BIT CAMERA seeks out an alternative answer in this field of intense research and innovation through the developer's passion for vintage imaging technology. By providing authentic simulations of the characteristic black & white picture styles seen on the classic Apple® Macintosh® operating systems and Nintendo® Gameboy® Camera embedded in a true-to-the-source user interface, 1-BIT CAMERA provides the most immersive classic computer photography experience yet seen on the iPhone. Wow!
