Chromic is both an video-grading app for the iPhone and a demonstration that we are all living in the future, carrying powerful supercomputers in our pockets. How else do you explain the fact that you can instantly apply any of Chromic’s filters to your video in real time as you watch it? You can even – and this is totally rad – scrub through the video and the effects are still applied as if a coat of paint had already dried on your pixels.
There are many apps which monkey with your videos, but Chromic looks like a great balance between simplicity and depth, the perfect combo for using on a small screen. You can browse video clips in a custom navigator, and then play them while you try out filters. These filters are very VSCO-like in that they’re subtle but good-looking, and they appear in a grid under the video view so you can just scroll and tap through them, applying them on the fly.
The app is free, and you can buy further filters through in-app purchases, aka. ShareWare 2.0. Between this and the iPhone 5S’s new slo-mo video, the future really is here.
