Instagram launches Hyperlapse, an iOS time lapse video app

Instagram announced Tuesday another standalone app — Hyperlapse. Through Hyperlapse, which is currently only available on iOS, users can create high-quality time lapse videos.

The app includes a stabilizer which allows users to create time lapse videos, even while they’re in motion. Smartphone cinematographers can then choose a playback speed between 1x and 12x, and share the video to Instagram or Facebook. You don’t need a Facebook or Instagram account to use the app.

Hyperlapse requires iOS version 7.0 or later, and is optimized for the iPhone 5.

Instagram blogged about the new app:

Traditionally, time lapse videos depend on holding your phone or camera still while you film. Hyperlapse from Instagram features built-in stabilization technology that lets you create moving, handheld time lapses that result in a cinematic look, quality and feel—a feat that has previously only been possible with expensive equipment.

We designed Hyperlapse to be as simple as possible. You don’t need an account to create a hyperlapse. Instead, you open up straight to the camera. Tap once to begin recording and tap again to stop. Choose a playback speed that you like between 1x-12x and tap the green check mark to save it to your camera roll. You can share your video on Instagram easily from there.

Instagram has been pretty busy lately, building tools for marketers, as well as Bolt, currently available in New Zealand, Singapore and South Africa.
