Horizon

☀ ☀ ☀ ☀ Horizon Camera produces a horizontal video no matter what the angle of your camera. Go from photo to video mode with just a tap. Different modes include flex, rotate, and lock. Use filters to liven up your videos. Horizon is free, but offers a premium membership; for $1.99 you get extra support and tools and can make videos without leaving a watermark. Journalists who don’t mind the watermark can give it a test run. New features can be found here. Download the app for iPhones or Androids. Sarah Hunt

☀ ☀ ☀ ☀  Horizon keeps your shot horizontal no matter how you move your camera. The app is straightforward and allows users to shoot video and photo on both the back and front-facing cameras. There are video quality options and a number of filters if you want to work with them. This app should be used by journalists shooting with their mobile device when there is no tripod in sight. The steady quality of the videos makes this app worth trying, as does the fact you won’t have to stretch the video in post-production because, as the title implies, your content will always be horizontal. —Carly Henry
