HDR Fusion by Cogitap is a genuine HDR photo app similar to Pro HDR and True HDR. It shoots and merges bracketed exposures and has been very good reviews in the App Store. It’s FREE right now for the next day or so. This is for the full version of the app, and not the free, feature-limited version!
HDR Fusion is Cogitapâ€™s foray into the third-party HDR market. Itâ€™s a full-blown HDR app which takes the two bracketed images and then merges and aligns them in-app. I havenâ€™t reviewed the app, but the results are different than any other HDR app available. Color processing seems to be a little more vibrant than TrueHDRâ€™s natural mode, but not at vibrant as ProHDR. Saves at full device resolution. It’s been averaging 4-star reader reviews in the App Store. Based on my initial tests, it’s fast, easy and solid and produces good HDR color.
At its normal price of $0.99, it’s inexpensive enough to warrant a look if you shoot HDR. It’s an excellent download for free and this is a great opportunity to try the full version of the app.
You also might want to check out Cogitap’s other HDR photo app, the excellent Bracket Mode ( ). All it does is quickly grab two bracketed images and saves them to your camera roll, letting you get back to shooting quicker.
HDR Fusion works on any iPhone or iPod Touch 4th Gen that’s running iOS 4.2 or newer.
