From time-to-time (usually only after reinstalling) you may find that your Hipstamatic viewfinder is black/blank/closed. The app needs permission to access the camera on your device.

That setting is easily updated!

Just open the Settings app on your device and look for the following location:

Settings → Privacy → Camera

Just make sure the switch next to Hipstamatic is flipped to “ON”

Then do a safe restart of the app (no need to reinstall) and see if things are working better.
