We’re excited to launch Halide 1.1. This update focuses on your feedback, and continues to polish the overall experience. Let’s go!
- Volume button capture: press the volume button on your phone to take a photo
- Focus peaking v2: Now smarter, faster and more accurate as well as 100% more green. It stands out better and shows you what is in focus perfectly. Now available on iPhone 5S!
- JPEG MAX: If you’re on a camera that doesn’t support RAW (such as the forward facing camera) there’s a MAX button in the Quick Bar that enables higher quality JPEGs with full 4:4:4 color
- We now capture photos even faster: the shutter button is even more responsive, and we avoid capture delays by "warming up" the camera on launch
- Haptic feedback in the Level Grid
- Easier to tap icons in the Quick Bar
- Optimizations to save battery
- Italian Localization. Prendere alcune foto!
We fixed an annoying conflict with low-power mode that prevented you from taking a photo or saving it.
We also fixed a number of crashes and other bugs. If you still have problems, email us at [email protected] and we’ll get right on it.
If you love Halide, we'd be very thankful if you rated us. We don't prompt in-app, and ratings get reset with updates, so every bit helps.
