New iOS app lets you shoot videos in portrait mode
Providing a good change to the age-old way of shooting videos and capturing pictures in landscape mode, a new iOS app reportedly allows users to shoot videos in portrait mode.
Horizon app, at 0.99 dollars, eliminates the black bars seen usually in portrait-mode videos as content shot with the app always appears in landscape mode, regardless of how the device is held.
According to Mashable, the app uses iOS device's gyroscope to automatically level videos as the user shoots and one can choose between a couple of different leveling modes, which change the size of the frame.
Users can shoot in portrait-style and videos would still come out as landscaped ones as they are cropped to appear like that, while videos shot horizontally remain unchanged.
The app also offers nine Instagram-style filters, as well as settings for shooting in different resolutions and aspect ratios, the report added.
