Hipstamatic's Oggl now allows for Camera Roll imports
Hipstamatic's Oggl has made a bold move for the ordinary. The (relatively) new photo sharing social network had previously only allowed photos taken in Oggl or Hipstamatic to be uploaded, but now Oggl is allowing any high-resolution photos from your iOS device's camera roll in.

On top of the new camera roll uploads, users will now also be able to crop and scale photos within Oggl.

You can take photos and videos, apply filters, comment and like posts, and even geotag your posts. 6tag is free in the Windows Phone 8 store.
