Skyflow is an incredibly handy and functional tool for photographers who aim for the best quality time-lapse shooting!

It has many options, such as choise of shooting resolution and format, motion blur and light trails effects, HDR, panning motion and more.
After shooting is complete you'll need to export your time-lapse as a video file or image sequence.
And the most amazing feature of Skyflow is that it allows you to change the playback speed of the final video even after the end of shooting!

• Shooting and exporting with a resolution of up to 4K
• RAW shooting and export (for iPhone 6S and above)
• Manual ISO, shutter speed, EV, WB and focus control
• Noise Reduction for cleaner shots
• Low-Light Boost for night shots
• Long Exposure effects: Light Trails & Motion Blur
• Exposure Bracketing for HDR export
• Horizon Stabilizer for shooting in motion or from a vehicle
• Zoom with lens distortion control
• Panning motion for dramatic effect in your shots
• Support for DJI OSMO Mobile and DJI OSMO Mobile 2 handheld gimbals
Attention: DJI OSMO Mobile 3 is not supported (for reasons beyond our control)!

Other features:
• Support for the telephoto lens (on dual camera devices)
• System time, memory and battery indicators in the status bar (pressing the memory indicator changes the viewing mode)
• Setting the shooting Start Time, Interval and Duration
• Ability to change some parameters directly during shooting
• Although the shooting Interval is fixed, you can change the speed of your time-lapse in the Editor before exporting the final video!
• Photo grid with guidelines for the rule of thirds, 1:1 (square) and 2.39:1 (cinematic) aspect ratios
• Geotagging (GPS metadata in photos)

• A quick view of your time-lapse projects straight on the home screen by just swiping your finger
• A rich featured editor: ability to trim time-lapse, add music or continue time-lapse
• Flexible HDR settings with real time preview in the editor
• Convenient and understandable export settings with the choice of resolution, format, video frame rate and quality
• The resulting video can be saved to a Photo Library, sent to iTunes, or sent to another application

In the free version, you can shoot time-lapses without worrying about any limitations,
but the export will be limited to the 540p resolution, 30 fps and the video will contain a watermark.
Restrictions are unlocked via a one-time In-App purchases.

Note that if your device has an 8-megapixel camera, which has a 15% lower resolution than the actual 4K, there will be a bit of quality loss while exporting 4K video.

Good time lapse app

Edit** after contacting designer with my problem
Great app, with lots of options for capturing timelapse with easy to use interface. One advantage of this app is the ability to export pictures to an sd card that you can attach using a dongle to your phone. But one thing to account for is if you want to export your timelapse you need twice the size of the file captured as free space on your phone otherwise Iphone wont allow it. For example if you want to export a 1gb file you need 2gb free space on your phone (this was the problem I faced and the designer answered it)

Sorry, but I didn’t understand what you did and what’s the issue :(
If your storage was full, then you need to delete or move some projects off the iphone memory.

Great control and quality time lapse app

It’s great at taking Timelapse so I highly recommend it but I give it 4/5 stars because of its file handling system. This app can generate both huge video files and thousands of raw image files so the inconsistency of the file handling interface and the inability of its image to be handled in the iOS Storage app make it hard to work with. A popup that says “Where are my files?” leads to an Apple website explanation of the iCloud but sometimes files are kept internally, sometimes on the phone’s iCloud account, and sometimes on the camera roll, so the “Where are my files?” popup should say where the software actually sent it.

A tutorial or documentation on how to adjust thousands of Raw files in post would be helpful for using that feature.

Again: 5 stars for the time lapse feature and it handles day to night sunset time lapses well. I wish there was a way to ramp the shutter speed but at least it can adjust exposure over time or lock exposure if desired.

We will try to make file management more clear for the user in the next updates.
Handling RAWs is hard and it’s a huge topic to cover, so idk... but Skyflow will get some basic RAW editing features in the future.
Mobile cameras are still pretty limited, but in Skyflow if you set the shutter speed to the desired value, it then will try it’s beast to apply set this value if/when the lighting conditions will allow to 🙂

A great app!

I used to use Lapse-It Pro, but once they upgraded that app it became totally worthless, and I switched to Skyflow, and I’m very happy I made the switch! It seldom crashes, even after shooting an all day time-lapse, I come back and it’s still shooting. I’ve been able to capture great storms and sunsets for example, and after thousands of frames it’s still recording, while the other apps usually crash after a thousand frames or less. Once I figured out the settings, I now get perfect videos every time :-)

Thank you for your kind words! Much appreciate!
