Works Fine - Maybe


This program works fine *IF* you work it *exactly* as it expects...the correct steps for which are undocumented.
1) If you set up a time lapse and decide to stop taking images in the middle, you can not create a time lapse, nor do you have a way of seeing or deleting the thousands of images already taken. (You can recover the memory iLapse used for those images by deleting the iLapse app, turning your iPad off and on again, and then reloading iLapse from the iTunes Store.)
1) if you interrupt taking photos for a manual time lapse, you can create it. But if you inadvertently press the "wrong" buttons, the software will happily and simultaneously move those thousands of images to your photo album and try to create another time lapse. It will not be successful. And there is no way to send those thousands of images back to the iLapse app from your photo album.
Both of these HCI issues indicate a slap-dash, untested app, and that's simply unprofessional.

Amazing capabilities

Reviewer J

This is the only time lapse app I have found that has a blending mode, which is awesome for sunsets. It lets you save separate photo frames and then stitch them into a video or blend them into one photo (search iLapse on Flickr to see examples I've done). You can also export the frames to use separately.

I'd like to give it five stars, but there are lots of limitations and missing features in the interface, so I can only rate it four stars till they fix that stuff:

In photo mode takes 3x4 aspect ratio, but when you blend into a video it crops it to 2x3 for no reason, losing some of what you captured. When you view frames there is no way to export only some of them, or select a range - you can only export all to camera roll, which takes awhile. When blending, Normal mode does nothing, but lighten and darken work well. Glitchy with large numbers of photos - sometimes they don’t show up, or appear in the wrong order.

If I delete some frames and then stitch a video, instead of stitching the remaining frames, it puts in black frames where they were.

The screen does not rotate, so you can't take a time lapse in any other orientation.

May be the coolest app ever!


This is one of the most fun apps I've downloaded in quite a while. I was a little overwhelmed with all the different options and buttons, but was glad when I saw the helpful info button that explained everything. Here's a couple things I'd like to see in future versions:

- The ability to use the app in both landscape sides. My phone stays standing a little better on the side without the buttons than with.

- 64-bit support. Forgive me if this is already built in, but I think this would make the app far more efficient. It took between 7-8 minutes to compile my 1588 photos into a 1:03 minute video.

Thanks. Keep up the great work!
