Chromatica is a fusion of power and simplicity in one superior photography app. With premium tools and an intuitive UI, Chromatica is the best choice for amateur and professional mobile photographers.
Chromatica has a simple, yet very effective UI. The most important information is always in front of your eyes, and this allows you to avoid surprises like an unexpected flash fire, timer delay or the wrong output photo format. Stop being distracted by the uncertainty of the settings, concentrate on your capture!
ISO/Shutter priority modes
Chromatica is among a few photography apps that support advanced exposure modes like ISO and Shutter priority. These modes are indispensable during dynamic photography when there is no time for adjusting manual exposure.
Histogram and clipping warnings
The histogram is a great tool to estimate your exposure. It can show you if the photo has under-exposed or over-exposed areas. Clipping warnings, on the other hand, can show you exactly where those under and over-exposed areas in your photo are.
Tracking mode in Chromatica uses the power of vision framework. Long press on the object you want to track and let Chromatica do the rest. Depending on the object you have selected (face or generic object), the app will choose the most appropriate method to perform tracking. Visual feedback allows you to quickly detect if tracking is active.
On dual-camera devices, Chromatica can capture depth information alongside the color photo. If the photo has depth information, in the preview window, two additional buttons appear (depth and portrait) that allow you to inspect the depth of the image and apply it to simulate an aperture.

Ratings and Reviews
I love this app! The UI is totally intuitive and very easy to use: I still discover different things every time I use it. Tracking, for example, is the latest. The quality of captures, in any of the available formats, is excellent too. I have had occasion to contact support which was a very good experience. All in all Chromatica is one of the best photo apps in my opinion.
No ads, no bloat, no dumb "login with facebook" buttons. It even won't request internet connection. And UI is nice too. But please add some sort of in-app quickstart guide.
Developer Response ,
Thank you for your feedback :) We're going to improve on this in the upcoming release. There will be a quick help at first start of the app and integrated user guide with all shortcuts
Question about the UI
I know what the 1x and 2x mean. But what does the D mean? I appears to block out all other settings except for the EV. I also cannot digital zoom with it activated so maybe that is part of the problem. Any clarification greatly appreciated. Fred

Dear Fred, D stands for depth. When depth mode is activated both cameras are acting as one and therefore it’s not possible to change anything except EV bias. Photos captured in this mode will have depth info recorded alongside color photo. In the preview view, you can later adjust simulated aperture value.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
