New Photo App Makes You Wait

1-Hour Photo on the App Store on iTunes

In an effort to remove the immediacy of digital photography, Nevercenter Ltd. has introduced a new 1-Hour Photo app that makes you wait for one hour prior to viewing your photos. This app has the added advantage in that it shuts off the front-facing camera and removes all traces of color from your photos, converting them to black and white. In an effort to support this app, here are the top 10 features:

  1. Out of focus pictures. Enjoy the blur.
  2. Poorly exposed photos. Photos that are too dark or too light are yours forever.
  3. Cropped photos. Do you really need to include everyone’s head?
  4. Missed moments. No need to know whether you really captured the moment or not.
  5. Photo bombs. Never know who is in your photo and what they are doing.
  6. More shots of your thumb holding the camera.
  7. No selfies. Really, no selfies.
  8. No more colorful flowers or brilliant sunsets.
  9. Actually, any color you want so long as it is black.
  10. Finally, enjoy the wait. Explain to kids what photography used to be like.

In order to fully recreate the film experience, I am submitting my request for the double Christmas app that won’t allow you to view your photos until at least two Christmases have passed.
