Halide is an award-winning camera app listed in Macworld's "Must Have Apps," The Verge's "Apps We Love," and picked by The Sweet Setup as "Best Third-Party Camera App for iPhone." Daring Fireball says, “This sort of maniacal attention to the smallest of details deserves to be celebrated.” Halide is a groundbreaking app for deliberate and thoughtful photography. With high-end tools, and a beautiful UI designed from scratch for the latest iPhones, Halide is your go-to camera when you want to really take a photo rather than a quick snapshot. Use gestures in Halide to change exposure and manual focus with a swipe. Halide’s professional tools include focus peaking, histograms, adaptive level grid, manual depth capture, and RAW support on supported phones.* Customize controls to adapt the app to your needs. Features: - Beautiful, intuitive gesture-based interface - An intuitive and fast lens switcher designed especially for iPhone 11 Pro - On iPhone X and later, a custom-designed UI that is completely usable with one hand - Manual Depth Capture: Take portraits of pets and objects on iPhone XR - Focus peaking and powerful manual focus* - Full manual controls including shutter speed, ISO and white balance - Live histograms for perfect exposure* - Captures RAW, TIFF, HEIC or JPG for the best quality shots* - Grid overlay with built-in level - Quick-review of your last few shots - Intelligent automatic and manual mode *Compatibility: The Ultra Wide camera on iPhone 11 and 11 Pro does not support RAW or manual focus. Histograms require iPhone 6 or later. (6, 6S, 7, 8, X, XS, XR, SE, 11, 11 Pro) RAW requires iPhone 6S or later. (6S, 7, 8, X, XS, XR, SE, 11, 11 Pro) Depth Capture requires iPhone 7 Plus, 8 Plus, X, XS, XR, 11, 11 Pro.

    These app are making me get into photography. Thanks you made such a good camera app I will enjoy using. Plan on finding and taking good photo and tag y’all in Twitter and Facebook. Recommend these apps to anyone new or experienced in photography. Thanks so much!!!! Would give 10/10 if it would let me.
  • Smart and (too) minimalist

    By eikonas
    Love this app. In comparison, Apple’s default Camera App is still a strong contender, but has gotten less straightforward and too often wants to ‘know better’. Two suggestions for Halide: give us square 1:1 format (and the option to make it ‘stick’: Camara App no longer allows to make square format the default; maybe that’s just an annoying bug). And please allow 10x zoom rather than the simple lens switcher. I know this sounds like heresy for the purist... but digital zoom has gotten more usable, is only getting better, and would make Halide perfect. In any case, thank you for this brilliant app.
  • Very good... when it works

    By Le requin
    About half the time, the app freezes when you try to take a photo using the depth option.
  • Black screen Please help!

    When I open the app I get a black screen.. I hope I didn’t waste my money please help! I have a IPhone XS Max
  • Great App, Recent frequent crashes using depth option

    By HomingSword
    I love this app, but it keeps crashing recently and being unable to take a photo after using the depth tool.
  • Manual zoom

    By 1Roger That
    Tell me how to zoom aside from the two predetermined settings please.
  • It’s okay.

    By manyunyut
    It’s okay. Nothing special. Lightroom Mobile is better because that has HDR + DNG.
  • Portrait Mode

    By Johnnyd2527
    Great for taking portrait mode of pets!
  • Depth Effect does not work

    By Logsdca
    Depth effect on iPhone XR is not working on rear camera despite being on latest versions of iOS and Halide. Depth effect on any object is why I got this app. Developer has stopped responding to my emails. Would live this app if it worked. I want my money back.
  • Really Greatest App!!!😍

    The app have a great interface, very simple and clean. However, it would be even better with the future "tap anywhere on the viewfinder" for to get photo instantly.
