What's New In This Version:
We’re proud to launch Halide 1.5, a big update with a completely new UI for iPhone X. All of the camera controls now sit within thumb’s reach, letting you easily shoot with just one hand. This new design uses every pixel of the new edge-to-edge screen, so nothing obstructs the viewfinder, giving you a uniquely unobstructed look at your subject. Every screen was further polished and designed from scratch for the iPhone X.
Under the hood, we ensured Halide works perfectly with the new cameras on iPhone X. Halide 1.5 captures Depth, letting you apply Portrait effects to your captured photos in the Photos app, and manual focus lets you see the new f/2.4 aperture on the iPhone X telephoto lens in all its glory.
We’ve made several improvements on older iPhones, too, to provide a more ergonomic experience.
You can purchase Halide from the App Store for $2.99.
