  • Finally RAW on the iPhone

    By Ben Waggoner
    I’ve missed being able to shoot DNG since I replaced my late lamented Nokia 928. Halide brings the functionality back in spades! Works nicely with Lightroom on iOS. Only feature request is automatic RAW upload to Creative Cloud.
  • Awesome app

    By BologneseTastesBAD
    This is an awesome app that is super performing, easy to use, and worth every penny. Just one feature request - can you guys make it so that when you open a RAW photo that was previously taken, it can display the RAW version and not the compressed version? An example of this in action is when you open a RAW photo for editing in Lightroom iOS. They let you zoom in almost unlimited and you can see full details. It is helpful because for us pixel peepers who want to see if there is any accidental blue in the photo. Currently, I have to import the photo from Halide to Lightroom when I want to pixel peep. Cheers!
  • good

    i do like the app, however i do have some gripes with it. i wish there was a separation between tapping to focus and tapping to adjust lighting right now, tapping adjusts both lighting and focus and it’d be good to separate those two functions i also would prefer a “shutter speed” type of function theres a slider for iso so i feel like it would just make sense to have a shutter speed slider too EDIT: there IS a shutter speed option my bad!
  • Loving it.

    Fantastic design, engineering and execution.
  • Hands down the best

    By RowBearToe12
    If it weren’t for the article I read on medium I wouldn’t have stumbled upon this app hearing about its journey in design to truly be tailored to this new iPhone X is what not only sparked my interest but it’s what made me willing to spend the money on it. It was no longer a random app on the AppStore. I had insight on its origins and an understanding of the detail put into place for it. As far as my usage goes I love it. It brings powerful features and a one handed UI to the iPhone X. Every interaction seems to have been thought of and much like the X you have to familiarize yourself with the gestures and icons. There are however a few bugs with the app one of them being landscape mode. Yes it orients the photo correctly but the UI does not shift. I’m sure this will be and can be fixed in a future update. But for now this is the best app to take advantage off both the camera technology in the iPhone X and it’s design. Bravo, 5 stars.
  • shutter speed

    By benchow6157
    misleading to advertise shutter speed control without mentioning the 1/3” limitation. i personally would not have purchased if this was stated in the description.
  • Average

    By Osubucki1997
    My initial thoughts are that this could be a good app to learn more about taking better pictures on an iPhone; however, it is very slow, sometimes taking 5 sec to settle on an autofocus. If youve got time for that it'd fine, but not good for on the fly pics.
  • Great camera, lousy viewing UI

    By vr8ce
    Halide’s camera is great; well-laid out, raw capture, etc. The viewing UI, OTOH, is awful. Every photo viewer on the planet uses left/right to move between photos. Except Halide. They reinvented the wheel for absolutely no reason: swipe up makes perfect sense for “like” and down makes perfect sense for “trash”. I don’t use Halide nearly as often as I would if it had a rational viewer.
  • Apple watch glitch

    By EastBayDrummah
    Love this app, super smooth. One thing though, when I'm running this app on my phone and I use my Apple watch to change the volume of my music, the app mistakes this for shutter release, since you can also press volume buttons on the iPhone to release shutter. Hope this gets resolved!
