SKRWT

If you take a lot of architectural photos on your iPhone, you’ve probably noticed that the wide-angle lens wrecks those critically parallel lines. Well, here’s a brand new app that fixes all kinds of lens distortion. I’ve only been playing around with it for a few minutes, but already I can tell that this will be an essential component of my iPhone photography workflow. It’s super easy to use, yet it produces beautiful, high-quality results. It’s the perfect app for ensuring everything is aligned before you use something like VSCO Cam to colour grade and make larger edits.

On a quick UI note, the app features an infinitely-scrolling lower toolbar. It takes a little bit of getting used to because there isn’t really a single toolbar icon to orientate yourself around. Once you get past that, though, it’s a remarkably efficient way of zipping through all of SKRWT’s different kinds of distortion correctors.

Right now, SKRWT is just $0.99 on the App Store. That’s an affiliate link, so if you’d like an easy way to support my writing while getting a really great app, please feel free to click through.
