Nerdstalgia


Bored with the usual pixel-perfect pictures? Missing the good old times with blocky, color limited displays, dithering and attribute clashes? Then look no further--you've found the real retro camera!

Nerdstalgia will allow you to see the world through the eyes of your favourite retro systems: Commodore 64, ZX Spectrum, PCW, CGA (modes 0 and 1), EGA, Hercules and Gameboy... and everything is processed and displayed REALTIME! No more waiting for pictures to be "processed".

The pictures you take are saved to the "Nerdstalgia" folder in the SD Card. The application also includes a lightweight gallery to browse through the pictures without having to hook the phone to a computer.

IMPORTANT: Please be aware that this is an EXTREMELY resource intensive application. For the best performance and frame rate, make sure you're using a phone with a fast processor.

Supported phones: HTC Magic, HTC Evo, HTC Nexus One, Samsung Nexus S.

This application *might* or *might not* work in other phones. Unfortunately, I can't provide support for phones that I don't have physical access to.

If the app doesn't work, please just request a refund instead of leaving a negative comment. Hope you understand! :-)

Nerdstalgia app This app works ok and it's cheaper to buy than many other apps that are available. I downloaded it mostly just to test out though. In my opinion it is a bit overly lo-fi for my tastes.

Nerdstalgia Just doesn't work with a Toshiba 10 w. JB update. Can't "initialize camera" & can't take pictures. Nice concept though. Uninstalled with regrets. ==A year and a half later...still doesn't work. ==

My S3 is Incompatible :( Originally had an HTC device and fell in love. Upgraded to an S3 but it's never worked on the newer device. Still, if this works on your phone it's worth having. So the 5-star rating remains. I don't think the author plans on updating. Luckily there are FINALLY more camera apps out there with similar functionally, and MORE! I'll always hold a flame for Nerdstalgia. It was the first of its kind for Android. I've kept it installed for over a year hoping for an update but today I'm uninstalling, sadly.

HTC one x Image only fills a portion of the viewing area (upper right corner), instead of the entire screen. Leaving a "L" shaped chunk of empty space.
