Halide Camera App
Developed by an ex-Apple designer and a former Twitter engineer, Halide is a groundbreaking camera app that will help you shoot like a pro. The idea is to offer smartphone photographers a variety of high-end tools for taking quality photographs when you want to really take a photo rather than a quick snapshot. The app’s gesture-based control scheme is meant to feel as intuitive and tactile as a great film camera, and will largely appeal to those who have some understanding of photography, and want to do things like quickly change the exposure or manually focus with a swipe. The app will give DSLR-style control over tweaking each and every setting, so if you want to give your Apple phone a professional photo kick this is the way to do it. Even novices will be able to ramp up their game with the built-in automatic mode.
It’s available now, priced at $2.99, though it’ll apparently increase to $4.99 next week.
