Developer’s Matter

I have been using this app for close to 5 years and two kids. It makes great daily photos, and time lapse. With the new version I reached out to Justin for support. He was super responsive and really helpful. This is extraordinarily rare in the app marketplace. I deal with enterprise developers and have consulted with them since early java apps on blackberry. Justin is one of the good ones!


Just about perfect

Love OSnap so much! Whatever I paid for the pro version was totally worth it. I use it all the time both to shoot time lapse & make silly videos of my photos; it's intuitive & fast to use. If you're shopping around for such a thing don't hesitate: get this one.



Been using this app for almost five years!! I use it every single day! I take a pic of myself each day and am trying to make a collage where I take a pic of myself each day for more than three years. Im at 567 days so far! Get it!! You wont be disapointed!!
