What's New

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.
