Stick out your green thumb because it's time to hitch a ride to the garden tech future. Introducing your time-traveling companion, Garden Camera! She uses the storytelling power of time-lapse photography and frame x frame animation to let you witness the stretching, bending, branching, and fruiting of your plants, flowers, containers, gardens, and yards! There's no setup, expensive professional rigs, tripods, waterproofing, or other objects that your neighborhood squirrel may use as a launchpad. Just line up each shot with the overlay tool, shoot, and in a few days, weeks, or months, export a spectacular growth video rake in those likes, comments, and shares.

Simple & Easy: is how it works
Create some image collections by snapping a few pictures of your plants, flowers, containers, gardens, and full sections of your yard. Then every few days, take another picture with the overlay tool to match the orientation of the original pic. Like a cartoon animator, the overlay tool acts like a lightbox so you can line up each photo you take with the previous photo. Once you have a few photos, hit play and watch your plants and flowers bloom before your eyes! When it's time to post progress, tap on the triple dots to save or share a time-lapse video to your device library or on your favorite gardening social media channels. It is super fun and you'll be wishing you had it even earlier in the growing season.

You know that day about 3 weeks after you plant something and you forget how small it was when you started? This is a really awesome app to help easily track your plants/gardens progress. Super cool

Great for indoor plant time lapse

I was looking for an app to create plant time lapse videos. This is surprisingly effective with the overlay thing. It’s a little easier to line up indoors vs outdoors but still A+ Please add push reminders for extra credit!
