Easy Time Lapse

A super app that is intuitive and easy to use. I have made several time lapse videos of flowers opening and closing. There is great control features both pre and post shoot. Like anything practice is important and even soft lighting will help. Many more possibilities for sure.

Excellent (best?) animation/time lapse app!

I was looking for an easy to use yet full featured time lapse app. I initially tried iLapse which was free. However it is too basic. iLapse does allow to set the orientation in landscape and unfortunately the default prevents the iPhone to be on its side due to the volume control buttons...
On the other hand, O-snap allows fine tuning of shot AND export settings. This app is definitely a keeper!
