A time lapse is a video where time appears to be passing very quickly. Originally, time lapse videos were created from a series of still photographs taken over time. Time lapse photography takes a lot of planning and the compilation process can be lengthy.

Mobile Apps for Recording Time Lapse Videos

There are apps now which can help you create time lapse videos relatively easily on your phone.

1. Hyperlapse

Hyperlapse is an app put out by Instagram which allows you to record for up to 45 minutes and then compress your footage into a time lapse. One of the major benefits of this app is that it will automatically stabilize your video. The only drawbacks are that your video will automatically be cropped into a square, and you cannot add in background music. Hyperlapse is not available for Android devices.

2. iTimeLapse
