Ratings and Reviews

Needs to be more intuitive.


I have been using this with the Galileo by Motrr. I haven't had a successful panning lapse yet (tried 5). Always seems to go the wrong way for some reason. It does turn out quite smoothly but just pans the wrong way. It is hard to illustrate how the 3D device will move on a 2D display when adjusting the settings. Maybe instead of the test button there could be a "quick test" option that shows a sped up demo of how the Galileo will move in the final result. And when you press stop, it moves the Galileo back to the starting position ready for you to start the lapse.

I just found that when testing the settings it kept resetting the direction and maybe that's why the lapses were turning out the wrong way.

Awesome app though has great potential. Love the quality.

Difficult to us


I used to love this app when it was simple. The latest version has a really difficult to use project area where you can stitch together other videos etc -- for that I'd rather use iMovie. All I want this app to do is time lapses and now I can't even do that as I can't figure out how to get a video from a project into my camera roll.

So in my view, a perfectly good and simple app has become complicated and almost unusable unless you know the developer and can pick his brain as to which buttons to press to get the darn timelapse into the camera roll. Loved it before, but now I don't.

Why complicate what was a perfectly useful app?


I loved the previous iteration of this app. It was so simple to use. It did timelapses. That's it. And it did them well.

Unfortunately the developer has sought to add a bit too much value to this new version, adding in clumsy editing suite that isn't really needed, and an interface that is not only difficult to navigate, but is also barely visible when the slightest amount of sunlight shines on the iPhone screen (orange text on black/grey? Seriously?). The old interface may have been less than slick, but it was dead easy to use.

Sorry guys, but I'll be switching to another timelapse app until the developers get this one right again.

To the developers: please revert to a simpler interface. You do timelapse wonderfully, but leave the editing suite to those apps that do it better.

The two stars is only for the parts of the app you've maintained from the original version.
