Never shoot a vertical video with your iPhone again

Horizon is an app we all wish had existed long ago. The premise is simple: no matter how someone is holding their phone, the app will only record horizontal video. I originally discovered the app while reading a post on TUAW.

Some might even view this app as a cure for Vertical Video Syndrome. I know I do. Not familiar with VVS? Here, watch this video and then come back. I think we can all agree, VVS needs to stop.

There are three modes to the app:

  • The first mode keeps the video framed horizontally and at the same size.

  • The second mode will adjust the scale (or zoom) as you rotate your device.

  • The third mode locks the video into full horizontal orientation, even if you rotate your device.

Priced at just under a dollar, Horizon is compatible with most iOS devices running iOS 7 and up. Download Horizon and do your part to help rid the planet of VVS.
