Ratings and Reviews
My go to video app
I use Horizon (in flex mode) for every video I shoot with my iPhone 7. The ergonomics of holding the phone vertically and getting horizontal video are superior to other experiences, though framing your shots this way may take some getting used to. Also, the turn to zoom feature is genius.
One request: I would love if the developer would add the ability to shoot square video - the horizontal image stabilization would be great to have for Instagram videos.
Developer Response ,
Thank you for your kind words! :)
You can shoot square video by visiting Horizon settings > Back (or Front) camera and then selecting either the 640x640 or the 480x480 resolution!
Excellent AND fun!!
I keep Horizon in the dock for always-available-quick-access. The basic set is great but when all the features are unlocked this becomes a wonderful tool for getting some beautiful footage.
You can look like everyone else taking those silly vertical video shots while getting stabilized horizontal 4K video goodness!
Love this app!
It’s simple and useful! Videos look very smooth and fluid with this app, and you never have to worry about holding the camera crooked.
My only request: add a feature to snap a still photo while recording video. Thanks!
