TimeLapse crashes constantly


This app worked for a while but now crashes with every edit, end results are useless!

Great app


Great app! With the quality of my iPhone 5 camera I have actually been able to supplement my professional videos with timelapses from it.

I recommend NOT encoding the video with the app because the resolution is far to small (SD when sent to Facebook etc from the phone, 720p when transferred off). However, if you aren't savvy enough to edit a video with individual images, then the video encoder is really cool.

How can you mess this up?


It must be one of the most simple things to write to do time-lapse. I downloaded this app. It turns out that the UI doesn't work properly in the free version so you have to spend $ on the IAP to make it work.
Then you cannot review the $1.99 App you have to review it here. Can anyone say sneaky?
WARNING I spent an afternoon making a video of an outdoor construction. Only to find that the first 5 mins and last 5 mins get faded out, and a big advertisement appears over the movie during the fade in and fade out.
You can turn off the advertisement, sure, if you want to re record the whole thing all over again,
