Awesome Time Lapse App

Traveler Tom

I've never reviewed an app before but this one was so good I felt I had to write. We had a modular house (3 modules) delivered and lifted onto a foundation and I wanted to set my old iPhone 4 to record it all day. It would have run out of storage for video but the time lapse was perfect. There is even a setting to adjust resolution to save memory and a setting to darken the screen when the photos begin to save the battery. You can adjust how often you want a photo (I took 1 photo every 15 seconds) and how many of the photos per second in playback. There are a lot more features but being able to save all of the photos to my phone and create a video so you don't have to view it from the app and then transfer them to my PC was the icing on the cake.

Quite good with Lego figures


My son and I have made a dozen animations with various lego sets. It has been a lot of fun. Reasonably simple but you need to read the instructions and do a few practice videos to really understand what buttons to press.
Request one: A full-screen tap to take a shot or a loud hand clap would be nice. (I HIGHLY recommend using the Apple earbuds to trigger the shutter, otherwise.)
Request two: Auto-shake reduction on export to reduce the shaking from unstable phone mounts.

Well thought out, robust, reliable


Someone put a lot of thought of into this app. There are a ton of features, but they are so easy to get to and tweak that it makes it all seem really simple. The possibilities with this app are endless. It is also very reliable. I’ve been doing time lapse projects for days at a time and never once experienced a crash. Happy to give this 5 stars.
