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."

Features: - Beautiful, intuitive gesture-based interface - 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: Histograms require iPhone 6 or later.

  • Just one little, big wish.

    By MissingRapanui
    Quick and smooth for shooting RAW. Would like to see option to have shutter release on lifting finger from button rather than touching it.
  • I love the app but

  • Favorite photography app

    Just try it
  • Waste of $6

    By FeralMermaid
    I only bought this because I wanted to use portrait mode with my pets on my XR. The results are NOT the same as portrait mode. The background is hardly blurred any more than standard photo mode. False advertisement.
  • Crashes

    By scogreg
    App crashes and portrait mode is undetectably different than regular photo. I would like a refund
  • Excellent App

    By Steven Dempsey
    I had high expectations based on other reviews I’ve seen. There have been so many good camera apps over the years, I’ve lost count. What makes Halide truly “great” is its simplicity. All the heavy lifting is done under the hood so all I have to do is get on with the business of taking photographs. If I ever need to adjust ISO, shutter speed, white balance or focus manually, it’s all just one gesture away. Honestly, it’s perfect for me because now it’s all about the photograph again and much less about the buttons and settings. Highly recommended.
  • Volume Rocker Shutter Support

    By savedabuffalo
    I like to shoot with the volume rocker as it feels more natural to me. Only problem is it works when it wants to. Sometimes it’ll actually take a picture and other times adjust the volume instead. Another thing I’ve discovered is that sometimes I have to alternate between the volume up and volume down buttons for it to work, which is very odd, and results in me having to readjust my hand and the frame. Other than that I love the app.
  • Must have

    By Zacharysbennett
    Amazing application. Every single update brings great functionality and stability. Highly recommend to any iPhone photographer or anyone who wants a better medium to take photos with.
  • As easy or as detailed as you’d like

    By Martinkelley
    Halide is one of the most beautifully designed, carefully crafted apps you can find on an iPhone. It’s built for ease of use, with controls arranged on the screen in such a way as to be easily reachable. You can go deep into its settings to produce carefully composed photos with manual focus and exposure-or you can just snap. There are lots of little details to surprise and delight. Your photography knowledge will definitely improve from reading the web tutorials and learning all of the features. The developers are accessible and keep adding more great features.
  • Not good

    By ClintHoleman
    I bought and downloaded this app. It wont open. It keep saying Photo Library Access restricted. I have checked all possible restrictions. They are all off. I’ve reloaded it twice. No go.
