iPhone App: Camerabag

I recently found this app mentioned in a magazine and I see Hollister Hovey has been playing with it too.

For $1.99, Camerabag allows one to change iPhone photos into something really special. There are twelve camera options:

"Helga" - Square-format toy camera with washed-out highlights and old-school vignetting.
"Colorcross" - Hazy, chemical color-swapping straight from the darkroom.
"Instant" - No need to shake this instant-developing film.
"Magazine" - Rich tones for glossy pages.
"1974" - Your father's camera: faded, tinted, and hip.
"Lolo" - Shoot from the hip and take life as it comes with vibrant, colorful shots.
"Cinema" - Dramatic, moody coloring with a widescreen aspect ratio.
"Silver" - From the earliest days of photography, when taking a shot was a much larger production than it is now.
"1962" - Dynamic, high-contrast black and white from the photojournalism of a bygone era.
"Mono" - Smooth, refined, balanced black and white.
"Infrared" - Simulation of the popular landscape photography technique.
"Fisheye" - Go ahead, get too close to the lens.
"Original" - Just in case you got it right the first time.

I experimented with a photo of my husband preparing his absinthe. Which camera style do you think is the best suited to this subject matter?

I want to get an iPhone just so that I can play with that app. I am no techie, but that is so cool.
