Ratings and Reviews
I never write reviews but I’m literally writing my first one to show how much I love this app. I’ve been taking selfies to make a time lapse for almost 5 years now, but the app I used before wasn’t very good. I’ve really struggled to find other apps that fit my needs but this one is actually perfect. I love how you can adjust each photo even after you take it to ensure that everything is in line. Before, all my photos were all over the place but I just spent the past couple hours lining all my imported photos (I have A LOT) and now the video is perfect!! I love how you can adjust the lighting before taking a picture, which I could never do before. Also, it’s so much easier to line up pictures with the guide in this app. Lastly, the process to create a video is super fast, I remember having to wait for minutes on the last app I used. I wish I found this app earlier definitely worth it!!
I only have one issue and that is when I export my pictures to my camera roll, they are all out of order and have today’s date. I hope this can be fixed!
Great, free app for timelapse documenting
Any sort of transition or passage of time you want to document quickly and conveniently on your device is a good candidate for TimeShutter. This app has worked flawlessly since I first started it three months ago, and for my purposes-- documenting my HRT transition-- it's a fantastic motivator when progress seems slow. I also love the date-stamps it puts when you scroll through pictures (these are only in edit mode; your rendered videos and GIFs are clean) along with the ability to adjust the rotation, scale and position of each individual frame any time you wish.
I would love it if this app were more versatile, like aspect ratio options (currently square format), the ability to adjust color and contrast, and more speeds (I exclusively use Fast mode, around 10 pictures per second, fine for portraits but other things I'd want even faster), but being a completely free app I can't really complain. Most casual users will likely be very happy with TimeShutter!

We hear you Eric! Even this was a free app, your feedback is still something we consider for improve. We will add free aspect ratios in the future versions, and you'll be able to adjust frame rate to any exact number you wish. We will also bring much more features in 2018.
Great app! Used for a year now.
I just finished a year of daily photos of my daughter since birth and I'm really happy with this app. I don't take photos using this app because my daughter doesn't stay still. I take photos or even my wife will take photos on her phone, send them to me, then I imported into app. Only issue with this was if I didn't save photo on same date it would set the file creation date to the day I saved the file and not when it was taken. You don't have to import day of and I would do a week of photos to catch up and the app would set the days perfectly each time.
This app does exactly what it advertises!
I started with an iPhone 5 then upgraded to iPhone 6S Plus and did not have any issues when restoring this app to my new phone and continuing the photos. I've recommended this app to many of my friends and would highly recommend to anyone.
Photos do come out square which would be cool if it could be more.
Developer Response ,
New update: in version 3.0, we support any aspect ratio. No longer have to be square!
