Instagram / Hipstamatic

Why you need it: By now you should be familiar with the Internet-age adage: Pics or it didn’t happen. Want to make all your Twitter followers jealous? Snap as many pics as you can and put ‘em through a cool filter using one of these two apps. Hipstamatic will run you two ducats, but you’ll get more, and better, filters than Instagram which is free.
