Hitstagram is an exciting new way to add a layer of old school authenticity to your cold, modern digital music, with the forthcoming iOS and Android app generating convincing retro audio filters to soften today's harsh recordings.

The app currently features four audio filters to try. A nice, scratchy vinyl effect, a wobbly, hissy cassette tape filter that recreates the distortion of failing batteries, plus a crackly boombox and an as yet unknown CD filter option. More audio editing tools are said to be coming soon.

We think it's just a joke. We think. [Hitstagram]
