Ratings and Reviews

Works fine, few improvements and would be perfect


Firstly, I'm not quite sure where the comments about the app saving every picture to your camera roll come from (I've never experienced that, nor app crashes). I have however fallen foul of not realising the need to turn off the 'add title to your video' setting on my first use though and my first video was a bit rubbish as a result.

After that though, the app has allowed me to make some really great time-lapses (that I cannot praise enough).

Room for improvement:
- the 'express' mode is frustratingly fiddly and unclear. It is far easier, and better, to use the 'classic mode' - that said, the feature I want the most seems to only be available on 'express' mode...

- exposure time. I've done two videos side-by-side, one with an exposure of 5 secs, one with 1/4 sec... Negligible difference. Why can't I set the exposure to whatever I want (provided it's less than the time between photos)? ...and why doesn't it work?

- fixed focus. Why can't I lock the focus? About 1 in 7/8 of my videos is ruined by the camera focussing in and out as it adjusts.

I've used about 3/4 different free time-lapse apps, and this one was the best, so I bought the full version. It still remains the best one in my book. But if the problems I mentioned aren't fixed, and someone else implements them, this app will lose it's crown.

Great App!


Some interesting feedback on here about this app, which are perfectly valid and interesting. However, I think that this restores my faith in innovation, where the app platform is concerned. Just think of how 'techie' that time-lapse was to exercise until recently for goodness sake!. I've tested this on some recent train journeys (blue tacking my iPhone to the window!) In my opinion it's amazing! Try using it with lens substitutions like 'olloclip' for some great wide-angle shots. Keep innovating guys!

I just lost 8 hours of photos


Today it was a nice weather so I decided to create a nice long time lapse video. I set the length 8 hours and the final length to 4:30 min. I left my phone to work then I came back in the evening to check the result. Well the result is nothing. No pictures no video just nothing. The app crashed in the very end when it tried to process so I lost the whole shooting. So I would say it's 1 star from me as I would expect the phone to remember the pictures it captured and could re-run other processes. I would go back to my dslr camera which at least not loosing entire works.
