      Is it possible to receive a working version via TestFlight for the new iPhone X?

    2. Hao Ao 4 days ago

      IOS version is about to expire in 6 days, any news for the update ?

      @Andreas, you can certainly switch to Android, I'll contact you to get the details I need.

      Hi Michael,

      According to TestFlight, you have the latest beta installed now - were you able to figure it out?

    5. Abe Fettig Creator on November 28

      Hi Matt,

      Thanks for letting me know. I'm still working through some issues on specific Android phones. I'll see if I can get my hands on a Pixel 2 XL for testing.

      The control you mention over color, etc. is still in development, but I hope to have it in a build soon.

      Finally, I haven't created documentation for the current builds, as the user interface is still changing quite a bit - but when working properly it should basically be: tap the frame you want to capture, then edit.

      Hi Abe,
      I'm an iOS backer, just my iPhone broke and I replaced it with an Android. Any chance I can switch to Android?

      Hi Abe,

      I suppose I am something of a moving target, when this project began I was on a Moto X Force running Marshmallow, and then I upgraded to Nougat. Now I am on a Pixel 2 XL with Oreo and this app has never seemed to work properly for me. I have not seen any instructions for how the app should work, or what controls I have, so maybe some of it is just me but on my latest device (the Pixel 2 XL) the screen is blank, then when I tap the screen I get one shot...there is no live display, no way that I can see to toggle negative/positive, BW/Color, or to adjust color in any way. I have read the FAQ but that does't have any answers, is there a tutorial or help file?

      Hi Holden,

      I think you might still be using an older build. Can you try installing the latest build from TestFlight? According to Apple it won't expire for another 24 days (and I promise there will be a new build available before then).

      Hi Abe,

      Mine says Beta has expired on IOS. Please advise.

    12. Mark Bennett on November 14

      Found the new vers, loaded via google play to my One Plus 1 and it runs for one shot then goes blank/black and seems to freeze. The one shot I did get has a 1 inch wide green band on it.

      Whens the next update?

      Have you tried the macro lenses yet?

      @Dario, Android autofocus is not a simple as I wish it was (there are some models that require extra work to get autofocus to work correctly). But I'll keep iterating on it and will try to get your Note 4 working soon!

      my note 4 doesn't focus correctly, and there is no possibility for re-focusing... is there any possibility to add a button or something similar, like for normal camera app?`

      Hi Abe,

      The latest TestFlight e-mail does not contain the link to download the new version for IOS. How can I install the beta on IOS?

      Best regards,


    33. Megan Slevin on September 14

      Hi, I'm not sure how to download the app? I didn't get any email, but it seems like it's ready? I'm in an iPhone...

      R&D version is still too "sour"... I'll wait for improvement before providing comments :-)

      Hi Philip, instructions for installing the Android beta are here: If, after opting in to the beta, you still don't see FilmLab available from the Google Play Store, try restarting your phone. Thanks!

      Hi Daniel - I've sent you another invite. If it doesn't make it through, send me a private Kickstarter message with a different email address and I'll be happy to try that one!



    41. Daniel Beckfield on August 27

      Hi, Abe

      I still haven't received the email for iOS. Probably lost in spam. Please resend and I promise I'll check spam everyday.

      I have the android version, using on my Samsung Galaxy S7. First, even though I've got a great light box, I see a lot of flashing. The app keeps losing focus; I close it, the re-open and it works. I can see the photo negative strip in photo colors, it seems to capture but immediately reverts to negative, which is the only way I can save it. Since there aren't really instructions, can you tell me what I'm doing wrong. The non-negative strip photo disappears when I leave the app. With some effort, I can see the strips as photos, but that's it. Can't capture anything (but have a bunch of photos of the negatives saved).

    43. Randy Reames on August 25

      Abe, Just for grins I brought up images of photo negatives from a Google search and scanned them. Except for the flicker from the screen timing it managed to capture them just fine. :-)

    44. Abe Fettig Creator on August 25

      Hi Daniel,

      I sent another invitation to the email address associated with your Kickstarter account. Is that the right address? If not please let me know. If it is, and you still don't see an email from TestFlight, you might want to check your spam folder to see if it got stuck there.

    45. chris stoltz on August 24

      abe, i found it, thanks again

    46. chris stoltz on August 24

      Abe, I haven't gotten the IOS email, am I own that list?

      I'd like to download the Android version. Google address

      Finally ready to download the iOS app. How do I do so?

      @Veerasak, I'm adding your email address to the list now.
