Outstanding, my go-to video app
While not the most technical video app out there, this is still my go-to video app for one reason: the tilt-to-zoom function. All other zoom methods out there are wildly inferior to Horizon's. The combination of being able to tilt zoom while the video remains perfectly horizontal to the earth is... simply amazing. Other apps, like FILMiC Pro are better suited for semi pro shooting, but FILMiC is not the video app I keep ready to rock on my iPhone's home screen... Horizon is.
You'd think the video would end up having lots of blur or distortion when using a program like this, but even on my lowly 4S it looks great.
When I see someone shooting a little video I say, "Do you have Horizon?" Then I say, "You should totally get Horizon. The Blair Witch Project was fine.... once." And I am not being ironic. Get Horizon. It's an excellent app.
