Lapse It - App review of time lapse Smartphone app for iOS and Android
I wish I could find the time to check out all of the app review requests that are sent to me. I sometimes get ten or more in a week, and I'm sure I've missed out on some really cool apps (although I do plan to go back and check them all out at some point). I know they don't send me their apps because they think I know what the hell I'm talking about, but rather because they're just looking for any little bit of promotion they can muster from schmoes like me, and readers like you.

However, once in a while an app review request grabs my attention and I find myself downloading and using the app. One such app which recently appeared in my email box was Lapse It. Lapse It is another camera app, but not just any camera app. This camera takes time lapse photography which, if nothing else is very cool.

There is a free and pro version (selling for just $1.99) and it's available for both iPhone and Android devices.

The basics are very simple. You set how frequently you want the camera to take a shot, and it creates a video which you can render in a variety of formats (MP4, MOV, FLV). In the pro version you can make videos up to 1920x1080. The free version has a lower resolution, but is still pretty impressive.

So, what might you want to record using time-lapse photography? The most common subjects are things like sunrises, sunsets and flowers blooming. But, if you take a look at the online Lapse It gallery of videos uploaded by users, you'll see a vast array of things like traffic on the road, downtown city activity, cloud movement, stars, and the list goes on.

Now, if you want to make time-lapse videos of scenes like sunrises, sunsets and flowers blooming, you'll want to make sure that your camera remains steady. Plus, who wants to sit and hold a camera for however long it takes for the sun to go down or the flower to open? So, you need a tri-pod.

As I'm sure you're aware, there isn't a hole on the bottom of your iPhone or Android device to screw into a standard tri-pod stand. Not to worry. You can purchase an iStabilizer Smartphone Mount for less than 15 bucks. Basically, it's a clamp to which you can attach your phone, and then screw into your tripod. I already ordered mine, and it should arrive this week. [Note: it arrived and works great. Ideal for the Lapse It app as well as timed photography and anything where you want a steady camera. Great addition to the pile of crap you keep in your backpack in case you might need it. :)]

This is a very cool concept in camera apps. And I have some very interesting ideas (and a couple of perverted ones), that I plan to experiment with.

Stay tuned
