Halide camera app for iPad

Lux, the company that makes the Halide and Specter camera apps, announced on Tuesday Halide for iPad.

We did bring all of the powerful features from iPhone, though: You can shoot RAW with your iPad, apply Instant RAW, view images and extensive metadata in detail in the reviewer, access our powerful Depth mode, and much more. Tons of refinements, design details and tidbits were added and changed to be great on the big screen, and we can’t wait for you to discover them all.

Why Putting macOS on iPad is a Bad Idea

macOS on iPad

Since the introduction of the M1 chip to various iPad models, there has been lots of talk about replacing iPadOS with macOS. One person who is not a fan of this idea is Ed Hardy. He explained why at Cult of Mac.

No matter that Macs and iPads run on the same chip. macOS isn’t designed for a touchscreen. Apple would need to redesign the operating system to run on a tablet, and devs would need to alter third-party applications, too. And that would anger people using non-touchscreen laptops and desktops. Plus, people happy with the iPad now wouldn’t like the change either.

The RainViewer Weather App is Now a Full iPad App With Widgets

· Andrew Orr · Cool Stuff Found

Last year I wrote about the RainViewer app for iPhone, and the team says that the iPad app is a full app now, not just a stretched out iPhone app. It supports all of the new features of iOS 14 including widgets. The weather radar map shows you where the storm is at the moment. You can track the whole path of the storm: how it moved for the past 48 hours and the forecast of where it will be moving the next 90 minutes. RainViewer is the only app that creates a future radar animation for 1000+ weather radars in original resolution using the latest forecasting techniques. The precipitation chart shows the intensity and amount of precipitation over the next hour in your area. Available for more than 90 countries, the precipitation chart visually displays when the rain starts and ends.
