    TrueHDR is my first choice for HDR photos on the iPhone. It takes 3 photos and blends the best two. Hydra is excellent if I had the time to take the 32 photos it needs as well as a tripod or solid platform for the iPhone to keep it still. TrueHDR is very usable handheld.
    Where TrueHDR pulls ahead of Hydra is that after the blend is done, TrueHDR allows you to modify the look of the photo with many more variations and possibilities than Hydra has. Hydra only has 3 options after the photo is take: Black and White, Medium, and Strong. That makes Hydra less useful artistically – particularly if I don’t like the output.
