HIPSAMATIC every now and then is good for the photo soul. I am not a filter guy. Some on Portraits. I generally like what comes out of my camera. However, every now and then a filter or App can make a normal shot look just great. Instagram, meh. Too many options. Snapseed, wow. Great. You can make it all happen there. Great App. For my taste, Hipstamatic is just right. It is just enough to see the scene differently. When I feel I need a real push to give the control freak a break, I go to my analog favorite Polaroid camera with Impossible Project silver shade film. Zero control there and true letting go.
