Not just a clever name.


OSnap! is a feature rich app that gives you the option to capture full resolution photos plus the ability to transfer captured images over Wi-Fi (via in-app purchase) for further editing and manipulation on a desktop computer. Features that are hard to find in other apps. Worth every cent and in-app purchases are reasonably priced too. Highly recommended.

Time lapsing and stop motion


A fine tool to setup and track multiple time lapsing projects for day in a life type portraits, or scene change tracking. I also prefer this app to others that I've tried for stop motion animate videos. Lots of of preference controls for: video settings, timer settings.

Other comments capture other good features of the app and points for room for improvement.

The best timelapse app for iPhone.


I have tried seven timelapse apps and tested them side by side and this outperforms them all. For some reason it's export compression is the best and looks great and the full manual controls are great.

Only wish the menu was viewable in landscape as currently only works in portrait which is not what you are likely to record your timelapse in. Lots of head tilting if you are setting this up on a tripod.
