TimeLapse is the professional choice for creating time lapse sequences on your iDevice. Now featuring long exposure functionality! (iOS 5.0 required, see details in feature list)

Easily create fully edited HD videos on your device with just a few taps in TimeLapse Express or, with TimeLapse Classic, take full control of the shoot and snap individual photos for professional post processing on your computer.

With TimeLapse Express creating an HD time lapse video has never been easier. Set the duration of the shoot, the length of the final video, an audio track from your iPod library, frame your shot, sit back and relax. TimeLapse Express will automatically create a complete silky smooth HD video with captions and a soundtrack, ready for sharing. Really, it's that easy!

Alternatively, use TimeLapse Classic's configurability to take full control of the shoot. Shoot better than HD, GPS tagged photos for post processing on your computer, create an HD video or do both at once.

TimeLapse is flexible enough to be used for time lapse photography, as a single shot delay timer, a journey photo logger and even as an ad-hoc surveillance camera.

- Hands down the easiest time lapse creation tool ever
- Create finished time lapse HD videos on your device
- Use any DRM-free audio track in your music library as the soundtrack of your video

- Use front and rear cameras
- Onion skin framing assistance
- Dark display to conserve battery power
- Automatic recovery from interruptions (i.e. phone calls)

- Configurable photo interval (from 24 hours down to the limit of the iPhone's capabilities)

- Start photo session with a timer or by date
- End photo session by photo count, timer or date
- Configurable photo size
- Configurable video size

- Set the phone to silent mode to eliminate the shutter sound when using TimeLapse Classic.
- To avoid interruptions (i.e. phone calls), turn on Airplane mode in the iPhone's settings. This will also ensure your iPhone will not move during the photo session.
- TimeLapse Express and video creation are available on devices with video cameras. You can encode photos into movies on your computer using applications such as Apple QuickTime, iMovie, Windows Movie Maker or ffmpeg.
