Description from the AppStore: Lo-mob brings lo-fi and photographic experimentations to your mobiles pictures.
Have you ever experiment with your old analog cameras? Have you put a 35mm film in a medium format body? Have you ever tried to achieve Through The Viewfinder (TTV) photography by shooting a picture with a camera through the viewfinder of another? Do you just love to stick you eye in the viewfinder of an old medium format body? Have you tried to deconstruct an instant picture, ripping off its frame to keep only the film? Do you prefer sometimes the subtle colors rendering of an outdated film from an old camera than an perfect picture? Are grain, noise, oversaturation, scratches and frames meaningful to you?
Do you just love your iPhone because it's the perfect toy to play with pictures? Do you often take a picture and try to treat it in various iPhone softwares?
If one answer to the questions above is yes, you may just love Lo-mob!

Editors comments: Despite this app having 30 effects I found them extremely disappointing and generally of poor quality, and whilst it may not be visible in my sample below, the inner edges of the slide are jagged and look unrealistic. This disappointment continues throughout the range of effects, both in colour and framing. In addition to the issues with the effects, I also found the image loading and processing times to be extremely slow.
On a plus side this app allows you to share your photos via email, Facebook or Twitter, letting you to set output sizes up to 1200x1600.
Overall I found this to be a disappointing app, and one that I regret buying.
