What's New in Version 1.0.3
Thank you for supporting Halide. We’re working on some really cool stuff, but in the mean time we’re releasing this small update to fix small bugs and annoyances.
Let’s start with new stuff:
* Double-tap to reset EV
* When you rotate your phone, the animation is a little more polished
* Image names are now consistent built-in camera, e.g. IMG_001, IMG_002, etc.
* Dutch Localization. More languages to come!
* You can now launch Halide with the shortcut halide://camera
* Cut down the app size by 300kb
And now bug fixes:
* Blank screen in the photo reviewer
* The “last photo” image gets stuck with a white square
* Upside-down selfies
* Layout bugs on iPhone SE
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.

Clean, simple, does that which you need without multiple interactions. Clever re-use of screen locations to provide relevant info and option(s). No video, no HDR, no low light algorithm. Just like a late 20th century Nikon film camera, but even easier to adjust!
Dear Developers: thanks and please never clutter or Swiss Army knife this app! I have eight other camera apps to do everything else. You have built the gold standard of function spec and UI design. Always my goto for photos!
I absolutely love this app with the full manual controls and leveling feature. I would absolutely love one minor update to the app and that is for the auto rotate to landscape mode even while the phone's auto rotation is locked.
I noticed that with the iOS app you could still rotate the UI to horizontal even if auto-rotate is locked. Would love to see this implemented on Halide as well.
Edit: Just noticed that you can take photos horizontally with the auto-rotate lock on. The interface just doesn't change. Great nonetheless!
I don't review apps for the most part. I've had iPhones since 2009, I'm an app junkie (probably 2-5 new apps a day), and I've reviewed less than 20.
This is an AMAZING camera app.
I take all my pics with my phone and this app has far surpassed any other one I've ever tried. I really appreciate the incredible work the developers did and continue to do to make this such a top-notch app.
