InstaREAL

V.1 Free Photo Filter App

Frequently Asked Questions
Thanks for being a part of this.

As you already know we have a long history (sometimes to disastrous effects) of jumping into things with both feet simply because it seemed like a fun thing to do at the time...The InstaREAL app grew from one of those jump then look situations...

With anything in skateboarding (and REAL) we all learn as we go. Our roll into mobile app technology has been fun and exciting and we've still got a few things left to work on and add in, but rather than sit on InstaREAL and wait, we wanted to get it in your hands to help build it out with your input.

If you see anything you would like us to add or just have some ideas for how to make it better - please- hit us up with your suggestions. RealSkateboards@dlxsf.com

We have three known areas we are currently working on in this advanced version to speed up:

-If your phone is using a lot of processing power outside the app while also using the InstaREAL camera you may experience a pause or delay. Just re-launch the app and you're good to go.

-If you switch back and forth between filters faster than humanly possible you might also experience a pause or delay. Same as before, just re-launch the app and you're back in business.

- If you aim the InstaREAL filters at any security guard you're in for a whole other type of delay.

3 Why can't I write my own tweet for Twitter with my photo?

This is an issue we're still working on to iron out the kinks.  If you are having issues with pre-generated tweets including the app link, make sure to use your existing account rather than signing in again from within the app. See here for the visual tutorial.

A. CLICK THE SHARE OPTION AND CHOOSE TWITTER
B. SIGN INTO TWITTER USING A PRE-EXISTING ACCOUNT. DO NOT SIGN IN AGAIN

  1. Click the Share option
    and choose twitter
  2. Sign into twitter using a pre-existing account do not sign in again.

4 I'm unable to save my photos... what gives?

- If you're on an iPhone make sure that you have given the InstaREAL App access to your photos in the privacy settings.
  1. Under your phone settings
    click the privacy option
  2. Choose the Photos option
  3. Turn on access for the
    InstaREAL App

- On an Android phone, check your photo folders, sometimes the app saves them into different folders.

5 Sometimes the app freezes when I go into the camera. What should I do? 

If your phone is using a lot of processing power outside the app sometimes it can cause pauses or freezes. Simply exit out of the app and relaunch it and you're good to go.

6 Why does the pre-generated text I get when I send an email, facebook updated, SMS, or tweet sound like a computer talking? 

Trust us, we would get rid of this if we could. As we said, we learn as we go, as soon as we can get our app developers to figure out how it can be taken out without messing up the whole app, it will be the first to come out. Thanks for understanding. 

7 What should I do if a security guard see's me using the app to shoot a photo of them?
