iPhone Screenshots


Focos is a big step into the future of computational photography, bringing DSLR-like photography to your dual-camera iPhone, with beautiful bokeh effects usually achievable only with professional large aperture cameras. With the technology of computational photography, you can make unlimited changes to your photos, focus after the fact, and change the aperture repeatedly, exceeding the limits of any editing tools you’ve known before. The creative potential unleashed by Focos is endless.

- Take photos with shallow depth of field, without manually painting or making selections.
- True 3D imaging.
- Simulate large apertures to create real bokeh effects normally only possible with DSLR cameras and expensive lenses.
- Import existing portrait photos and customize the bokeh effect.
- Re-focus portrait photos that have already been taken, with a simple tap.
- Choose from various simulated aperture diaphragms to generate different bokeh spot effects.
- Professional options to simulate lens characteristics, such as creamy, bilinear, swirly, and reflex effects, and more.
- Visualise the depth of areas within your portrait photos in a 3D view, and intuitively add depth filters.
- Simulate rainy, snowy or foggy weather with depth filters.
- Intuitive and easy to use, with built-in video tutorials.
- An essential tool for iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X (dual lens devices).

Taking portrait photos is not possible on devices that lack dual cameras. It is therefore recommended that Focos is used on devices with dual cameras.
All sample photos in screenshots and video previews were shot on an iPhone 7 Plus.

Great app for next level iPhone photos



Continuous mode is the bomb. I shoot a lot of pics with it for work and we do a lot of live action shots. Love how I can control what to focus on and blur. It does lag though, a few times I’ve had to force it to shut down just so I don’t miss an opportunity at a shot.

A few things I would love on the app is to have the ability to easily switch between pictures when in the editing screen instead of tapping the back arrow then searching for the next image and selecting it. Takes too long.

In addition, would love to have folder organization for the pictures already taken or have the pictures from the iPhone Favorite folder distinguished between other images that aren’t favorited. You know how Favorited images in the All Photos folder on iphones have a heart symbol? That’s what I want within the app. Right now it’s cumbersome when having to comb through the portrait images in the app to find the same ones I’ve already favorited on my iphone.

Not sure if this is even possible, would love to have multiple focus and blur points in an image that can be fully adjustable. Sometimes there’s weird blurring and focusing on an image that can’t be fixed via the settings so it looks off and edited.

All in all, great job with the app. Lifetime unlimited access price is worth it and a steal.

Thanks for your long review. New version with patch is on the way, and it allows you to edit the depth map with brush tool, so you can fix the error edge manually. Thank you.

Awesome...but instructions?


This app is amazing & unique in its ability to set a realistic and changeable depth of focus with specific bokeh fx as well as “special” novelty fx, in addition to lots of other variables that can be tweaked in different ways. I just have no clue what I am doing, especially as I make adjustments in the “effect” screen to “back bokeh” & “front bokeh” in a changeable 3-D image of my photo with perspective/angle that varies by degrees (?). I think it defaulted at 72 degrees? I have a 2 hour free trial of the pro-version, but unfortunately it will take me at least that long to experiment with the options. I wish the tutorials were explained better, because the action is too quick for me to understand what is happening, or what has changed. I will search online for tutorials that also explain each step as it is done. I can’t wait to learn how to effectively use all the options!!!

I think you watched the quick tutorial when first entry the interface. You may tap the help icon at the left-top corner for more information. I'll make a major version with lens presets in January 2018, to allow users to simply tap the presets and apply aperture effects easily. So you don't need to know how it works, but just tap the lens you like. Thank you.

Great app


Great app if you already have a phone capable of portrait mode. I love the concept and execution.

I do wish that it would be able to read depth data from portraits I didn’t take. It wouldnt let me edit any portraits I didn’t take. it says it can’t read the depth data which I’m guessing means there isn’t any so I don’t think it’s necessarily a problem with the app.

EDIT/UPDATE: Thanks for your response. I understand how it works, I was just noting it doesn’t work with portraits not native to your device. Several times I tried to use my wife’s iPhone 8 to edit portraits from my iPhone X in Focos. I think when the photos get transferred between devices they lose their depth data, so I was letting people know not to expect to be able to edit portraits taken on devices that aren’t their own. Unless there is some way to transfer the depth data too. And yes it does only list portraits from your albums but it lists all portraits even those it cannot work with, which is frustrating but understandable because that is apparently not something the developer can control.

Again, I still think this app is awesome and a great tool for editing portraits.

You can transfer the portrait photos taken by Focos not the system camera to your wife's iPhone 8. And she can edit the bokeh effect with those photos. If you transfer the photos taken by system portrait cameras, you only transferred the blurred one not the original pictures. That's why it saves the pictures separately. If you restore the portrait photos on other devices, you can edit the portrait photos and turn on/off the portrait tag, so the original pictures will be restored manually. It sounds difficult, and I think Apple didn't make the rule clearly in the beginning. So the developers and users are confused. Thank you.
