What is time-lapse?
Time-lapse is a professional technique to capture photos at a slow interval and play them back as normal speed video. The otherwise slow changing moments are condensed into a dramatic scene, which often contains fantastic visual feasts revealing unusual events otherwise slipping by unnoticed.
Time-lapse is a special effect, it is NOT a substitute for the video recording capability of iPhone 3GS.
- To save battery usage, reduce the brightness setting during shooting.
- An iPhone stand, holder or mount is always helpful.

Works well with iPhone 4
I was looking for a simple timelapse program to use with my iPhone 4. The first program I tried was iTimelapse which apparently does not work with OS4. Disappointed but undeterred, I read all the reviews of all the timelapse apps and decided to try ReelMoments.
The interface was easy to follow and I set my phone to record every 2 seconds at the highest resolution, 1280x720, for 2 hours.
There were a couple of things to remember:
-set your phone to flight mode
-set the auto lock in your settings to "never"
-dim your screen brightness to save battery
-if you do not want to hear the shutter, use the mute switch
After 2 hours, the battery drained from 98% to 35%
The video is saved into the camera roll as a .mov file which I imported into iMovie to edit.
For me, this app worked better than expected. The one thing I would like to see is the app continue to run when the phone goes into standby, but that's not a deal breaker.
Great app! needs an update though.
This app is great! i've made quite a few timelapse with it. Very cool to take timelapses of thunderstorms! But, like a few other reviewers said- it needs to have the option to turn off the screen while taking pictures. My phone also gets very HOT after i take a good amount of video. I'm not sure if it's the fact that the phone is constantly taking pictures or if it's the fact that the phone's screen is on the entire time the app is running. The phone getting pretty warm while using this app makes me afraid to use this app more than i do. Fix the screen issue and im sure it will fix that problem. Thanks for this great app overall though!
Needs some work still
This is a nice app in perfect conditions, temperature, battery life etc. but unfortunately there is no auto save or stop when the device is interrupted. They added an auto stop when the battery runs low which is great, but it also needs an auto stop if the temperature of the phone gets too high. I have lost countless movies because the phone over heated after hours of recording. In addition, movies can be lost if the phone is interrupted by text, call, or phone warnings. The application should auto stop, but instead crashes losing anything in progress. Other than that, it's a wonderful application.
