Now, shoot 'time-lapse' videos easily with Instagram's 'Hyperlapse' on iPhone
Instagram has released a new standalone app called Hyperlapse has been added to the iPhone app store, which allows users to easily shoot 'time-lapse' videos and share it on social networking sites like Instagram and Facebook.
Hyperlapse is a stabilization engine that takes advantage of the iPhone's built-in gyroscope to keep images from shaking Hyperlapse users are free to move around.
Generally, shooting 'time-lapse' videos require the camera to be steady for a period of time, but the new app uses the in-built gyroscope which detects movements, and users can shoot such videos without the fuss of keeping the camera steady.
Unlike Instagram, Hyperlapse is more a tool for creating videos than a social sharing app. Users don't need to log in with an Instagram or Facebook account to use Hyperlapse, but there is an option to post clips to the two social networks when you're done. There aren't filters in the Hyperlapse app, but they can be added through Instagram although the videos will still need to be cut down to 15 seconds.
