Instagram may be known as one of the popular, must have apps right now, but its new standalone app called Hyperlapse aims to change that; since it’s all about creating time-lapse videos with built-in stabilization, that will make shaky videos look like they were made with a professional rig.
With this app, all you have to do is record, pick your playback speed and then share with your friends and family on Instagram or Facebook. It’s easy, fast and super simple to use, since its overall concept just helps stabilize and smooth out any type of bumps or shakiness from your videos, for a more seamless, cinematic look.
Meaning you can capture an entire sunrise, walk through a busy crowd at a festival, capture traffic in the heart of rush hour, and then add the time-lapse effect; to make a 5 minute shot condensed down to just 10 seconds, to make it more interesting. And, what’s so cool about this app, is that you don’t even have to try to be super still while recording it, but can be running, jogging or laughing and it will stabilize the video where it looks it was shot with a steady hand.
You can download Instagram’s new standalone app, Hyperlapse, at the App Store, where it’s currently going for free for any iPhone or iPad with an iOS 8.0 or later.
