Nostalgic for…Cameras?

Do you find yourself missing the days of having to go to the store to have your pictures developed? Well, I’ve got some good news for you!

An app called “Gudak Cam” attempts to recapture those feelings and it has been shockingly successful. What happens is users will pay for this 1 dollar app and then take pictures like they usually would (with an entertaining “Gudak Cam” design that we can admit looks familiar) and then the pictures will take 3 days to fully develop and be actually added to your phone’s gallery.The app can only hold 24 pictures before the film needs to be “developed and replaced”, just like the old days. A simple novelty, but the numbers don’t lie. Gudak Cam is currently one of the hottest paid apps in the App Store in countries like South Korea and Japan. I wonder if the app will ever skyrocket over here in America? Well, I wouldn’t be surprised as nostalgia has been proven to be successful from a business (*shudders begin remembering the NES and SNES Classic and their respective store lines*). Does the idea of recalling those days of waiting for pictures really sound worth it? Does the fact that it costs money a deterrent? Go ahead and tell us on our Social Media!

Until Next Time, Alt Rock On!
