Get it for: Free on App Store

To use all the cameras on your smartphone at the same time for get maximum output has proven to be a bridge too far for many brands. Even Apple, with its new iPhone 11 range, has to rely on third-party apps to make optimum use of all the cameras. During the launch of the iPhone 11 series, Apple used an app to demonstrate the real capabilities of its cameras. The app in question was DoubleTake, which has now been officially rolled out.

DoubleTake allows you to record two videos separately. Not just that, it allows you to cut between multiple cameras, use them as split-screen or picture-in-picture.

The app is simple to use and you can choose the two cameras you want to use. In the case of iPhone 11 Pro Max, you can opt between ultra-wide lens, wide lens, telephoto lens or the selfie camera. The app gives you the choice to pick between 24 frames per second (fps), 25fps and 30fps. You have to shoot in 4K resolution as the only option is 1080p.

Choosing the split-screen mode is the best use of the app as it divides the display into two screens. For instance, if you want to take a photo of two people talking, the app captures it in a single video. It is quite cool and will simplify many of the tasks of a videographer.
Shifting between cameras within the app is smooth and not for a minute the interface lags. The whole experience of using DoubleTake is unique as it really utilises the cameras wonderfully.

There is also the Discreet mode which captures two separate files (16:9) at the same time. It comes in handy to capture wide and tight angles simultaneously.

The app, from the developers of Filmic Pro, is free. It is however not suitable for casual users of the iPhone but is a welcome addition for semi-pro or professional videographers. The app is also limited in the sense as it is only supported by iPhone XR, XS, XS Max, 11, 11 Pro and 11 Pro Max. But if you have any of the above iPhones and want to get more out the cameras to shoot videos, the app makes a lot of sense.
