|Splash screen for version 300|
Another big plus right now is that everything, all of the packs and films, lenses and flashes, are free. This includes some of the promotional packs that were no longer available (like the Cowboys vs. Aliens pack).
If you notice in my first sentence I wrote that I was excited. Past tense. I suppose I am partly to blame for the issues I am having, because yes, I am still using a virtual antique of a phone. (My phone carrier will allow me to upgrade in December...).
So what is the issue? The same one being reported by a lot of users. It is slow and it crashes. A lot. Like every two to three photos I take the app freezes, screen goes blank and then returns to the home screen. Sometimes when I relaunch the app the photos are still in the processing queue. Most of the time they are not.

In defense of Hipstamatic,they already rolled out an update patch to version 301 that some users are saying fixed their crash issues. For me, no such luck. I am going to try stripping off almost all of my other apps and see if having more memory available helps things run better.
Right now I feel that if I had the choice I would roll back my phone and revert to version 280. It crashed too, but it did not use up more than 20% of my total phone storage with one app that crashed.

Have you upgraded to version 300 yet? If so, what have your experiences been like?
