TrueHDR 2.2 update released and on sale!

TrueHDR 2.2 Enhanced mode


TrueHDR by Pictional was updated to version 2.2 today. For the launch of the new update, TrueHDR is on sale for a limited time for only $0.99 — that’s $1 off the regular price.

TrueHDR is real HDR. The camera takes three bracketed exposures — one normal, one slightly overexposed, and one slightly underexposed — and merges them together, keeping the best exposed areas of each capture. Click past the jump to read about the new 2.2 update. >>>

While not a huge update, it is a good one. The improvements include better algorithms and the addition of Geo-tagging. Here’s all that’s new in the update:

  • Geo-tagging – Keep track of where you took photos with TrueHDR! With your permission, TrueHDR now tags photos with location information.
  • Improved alignment – fewer ghosted edges resulting in even crisper, higher quality images
  • Enhanced light metering – better balance between shadow and lighter area in images, meaning that you end up with a better range of details in your pictures

Does it work? In my quick tests of the new update, there’s definitely a reduction in ghosting, particularly in Enhanced mode. Previous versions had visible issues aligning fairly close shots. In my test images, this has been visibly improved. Unfortunately, North Texas weather is currently preventing me from testing the app outdoors on a landscape with a blue sky.

TrueHDR is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Requires iOS 4.0 or later.

The update is free to previous owners of TrueHDR. If you don’t own the app but have been looking at TrueHDR, this is a limited time sale, so grab it now!

    How does this updated app compare against other HDR apps (like Pro HDR and HDR Fusion)?

    A comparative test would be a fun read.

      That would be great!

      Also include the HDR function that comes with the Apple Camera app. It can't be used on stored photos, but it would be interesting to see how it stacks up against the apps mentioned above. It is free after all!

    Just bought the app. I think the color for indoor photo is too dark. However, the biggest problem is on my 3GS with os 4.1, it doesn't save the image. Every time that I tap the save button, it will go to the Home Screen instead.
