    It’s rare that you find an app that works better than the one built into your iPhone. But this is one. I’m new to DSLR photography, but it’s comforting to know that when I’m not lugging my DSLR bag with me, I can open Halide on my iPhone XS Max and have similar photography controls that produce amazing results. While this app doesn’t replace a DSLR camera in performance by any stretch, it’s definitely more advanced than the point and shoot experience found in the stock Camera app. You can even shoot in RAW format! If you were looking for a way to augment your iPhone photography experience and were considering other third-party camera apps, just forget them all and install Halide.

    It can be a pain to get a refund when buying an app in the App store, so I was very hesitant when buying this app and I can say it was worth every penny. You get so much power on your iPhone’s camera because of this app. 👍 to the developers for making a phenomenal app
  • Ecstatically Updated Review!

    Update: About a day after leaving my initially unhappy review, an update was released. More than that, though, is that I recurved a response to my review to personally let me know about the update. First: Brilliant customer service that they would reach out to let me know about the update. Second: The update fixed the issue I was experiencing; I now see what all the fuss is about with this app! I submitted my info for help via the app regarding errors I keep getting and got an undeliverable message back so at this point I’m incredibly disappointed with this purchase. The app gets great reviews but when I take a portrait photo, it can’t be recalled because of an error. I’m just gonna get the purchase refunded.
  • Great photo app with excellent support

    Had an issue with portrait mode. Reported on here and the dev fixed in the next update.
  • Portrait on iPhone XS Max is exceptional!

    I downloaded Halide after reading several reviews. I’m still learning how best to edit raw photos but wanted to have an app that could truly capture images as the XS Max intended them to be captured. I REALLY like the portrait function in Halide and find it superior to the native functionality on the XS Max. The XS Max tends to highlight the face - and only the face - very well. I like how Halide will detect the torso as well, providing more richness to the portrait than the native camera. I still have a lot to learn but I’m very happy with this purchase.
  • Best Photography App

    This is the best application in the app store that actually takes advantage of the iPhone XS capabilities. For portrait images I would rather use this app than the built in camera app. Now we need a video camera equivalent.
  • App crashing when reviewing portrait mode photos

    Can't view portrait mode photos properly in app, says "there was an error loading the photo" Edit: they fixed the issue now. Props for quick updates!
  • Stop searching this probably is the best iPhone camera.

    Yup I’m one of those, who keep purchasing camera apps with promising manual control and better picture quality. I believe I found one that I will no longer need to keep purchasing. This is simply the best by far.
