Halide 1.5: A camera app made for iPhone X
With the launch of the iPhone X, we’re proud to announce the release of Halide 1.5. Halide 1.5 is a huge update which features a new camera UI, designed from scratch for iPhone X. It was clear to us that the iPhone X is a huge step in the evolution of the iPhone. We could simply adapt our previous Halide interface to scale correctly to the new, bigger screen, but we wanted to create a camera experience that was not only unique to this new device, but also took advantage of its strengths. It presented unique challenges for ergonomics (it’s a very tall screen!) and layout. For Halide for iPhone X, all of the camera controls now sit within thumb’s reach, letting you easily shoot with just one hand. Beyond your hand’s reach, we are still using every pixel of the new edge-to-edge screen, including the upper corners. With the extra vertical space on iPhone X, we were also able to design the camera UI so that nothing obstructs the viewfinder, giving you a uniquely clear look at your subject. Of course, it goes beyond just the camera: every other screen in Halide was designed from scratch for the iPhone X..
