Horizon lets you capture horizontal videos and photos no matter how you hold your device. Hold it upright, sideways or even keep rotating it while capturing, your captured moment will always stay horizontal! Shoot with the back or front camera and share your creations!

Ever felt you had to rotate your device while recording a video? Do you often end up with vertical videos or videos in wrong orientation? Enter Horizon!

Horizon works like magic! It auto-levels you photos & videos while recording, using your device’s gyroscope. The resulting orientation is corrected so that it always stays parallel to the ground. Horizon makes your phone act as a 1-axis gimbal rig.

With Horizon you can help bring an end to the Vertical Videos Syndrome. Yes, you can now record horizontal videos, while holding your device in portrait mode!

▶ Video resolutions include VGA, HD and Full HD depending on the device
▶ Save to your SD card
▶ Start/stop video recording using the hardware camera button, or volume buttons.
▶ Take photos while recording.
▶ Three video quality options to help you manage storage space: High, Medium, Low
▶ Three leveling modes include: Flex, the frame is always adjusted for maximum viewport; Rotate, the frame stays fixed; and Locked, the auto-leveling is disabled
▶ Other apps can launch Horizon to record a video for them.

Horizon is free and lets you capture videos and photos with the Horizon logo embedded in the video. Via In-app purchase you can unlock additional functionality such as priority customer support, removal of the Horizon logo, ad removal and access to future features.

- Android 4.3 +
- Accelerometer or Gyroscope

CyanogenMod users: please make sure that Privacy Guard allows Horizon to use the microphone, or else video recording will be unsuccessful.

Bought the Pro upgrade but definitely disappointed that there's no way to select a video resolution over 1920x1080. Second to that, it doesn't seem to be possible to select the wide angle camera on my S20. In addition, it would be awesome to have some type of deshake filter in combination with the horizon leveling, negating the need to import the video and edit it on a PC. Huge potential for this app if it could just add a few extra goodies in ...

Recorded a video for 2 minutes, and it corrupted the saved video. Video players think the video is 3 hours long and are unable to play it. This app ruined a one time moment because it couldn't do the most basic feature which is recording a video and saving it correctly.

As far as I am concerned this app has cost me both the money I paid for the logo - free version but also several hours of work wasted when it decides to quit unexpectedly. I won't be using it again as I just can't afford this kind of instability. Very disappointed.
