Mobile Photography App Hydra 1.5 Brings Support for the Telephoto and front cameras on iPhone – We Have Promotional Codes!

Share

Hydra launched in 2015, pioneering the new category of computational photography apps for iPhone, by introducing 32 megapixel images shot with an 8-megapixel sensor and HDR photos with a wider dynamic range by merging up to 60 images together. These features made it a great companion to the built-in camera app for iPhone photography enthusiasts. Today, Creaceed, the developers of Hydra have released 1.5, a significant new update to their HDR photography app. Hydra 1.5 now features support for the telephoto and front cameras respectively in Zoom and Lo-Light/HDR modes.

Hydra lets users take beautiful pictures even in the most difficult lighting conditions using a variety of capture modes including HDR, Hi-Res, Lo-Light and Zoom. This is achieved by combining up to 60 frames to create a single high-quality picture.

With Hydra version 1.5, users’ feedback has been taken into account. Infact, shooting with the telephoto lens in Zoom mode and with the front camera for selfies in HDR/Lo-Light modes were two of the most popular requests from users.

“The front camera sensor typically is less capable than the rear camera one, and enabling multi-image fusion with Lo-Light and HDR modes allows selfie capture in situations where this would otherwise not be possible”, says Raphael Sebbe, Creaceed’s founder. Similarly, Hydra can now take advantage of the telephoto lens on compatible iPhone when shooting in Zoom mode (super resolution), enabling higher quality 2x and 4x, plus adding a new 8x zoom level.

Hydra retails for $4.99/£4.99 each in the iOS App Store and today we are offering the opportunity for you to win a free code.

Streets 4.0: Street View App Adds Drag and Drop and Live Panorama Mode

Share

Streets, the popular Street View browser app for iPhone, iPad, and Apple Watch, is now available in version 4. The major update adds drag and drop on iPad and a new Live Panorama mode allowing to look around in a panorama simply by rotating the device.

Streets is focused on delivering the best Street View browsing experience. The user can navigate to any 360° panorama simply by dropping a pin on the map or by searching for an address or contact. A selection of more than 2000 spectacular locations such as national parks, museums, and underwater panoramas are available in a gallery as well. Panorama coverage is visualized with a blue map overlay and favorite panoramas can be organized in folders.

New in Streets 4 on iPad, panorama locations can also be set via drag and drop. The user can drag a pin location from the Maps app, a contact, or a textual address into the Streets app to find nearby panoramas. Even geotagged photos can be dropped in Streets to find 360° spherical images near the photo location.

Street View panoramas and map locations can also be shared with other apps using drag and drop. For instance, the user can attach a Street View panorama of a meeting place to an email or note. Or the user can drag a panorama or map location into the Maps app to get directions.

With the new Live Panorama mode, virtually traveling abroad is even more immersive and fun. Turning around in the panoramic scene works by simply rotating the device.

Streets 4 is optimized for iOS 11 and fully supports the iPhone X, in either portrait or landscape orientation.
