When you look at the tools that reporters and other short filmmakers use with the iPhone, Filmic Pro is the most-cited app. Elected several times as the video app of the year by Apple, it offers many settings that are not offered by the standard iOS app. There are settings for white balance, focus, resolution, zoom – everything is there.
The application can be controlled via the Apple Watch or with an external app and it even supports Dji Oslo stabilizers. It is a pro app at a reasonable price.
Here is a cheaper alternative to Filmic Pro that offers many advanced features like exposure control, focus, white balance, image quality, framerate, video support 4K or the support of external microphones in Bluetooth.

This app also has a remote control app available on the App Store to control the camera remotely from another iOS device.
Released in 2015, this app does not benefit from the notoriety of Filmic Pro, but offers lots of tools and settings. There is separate control of exposure, focus, shutter speed and color temperature and the app also allows you to use external microphones, a visual audiometer, manual volume control and monitoring via headphones.
