  • Instagram Hyperlapse app helps you create fun, time-lapse videos for free.

Facebook-owned Instagram has launched Hyperlapse, a new standalone video app that can help you create fast, time-lapse videos. Users can download the app from the Apple app store and it is expected to be launched on Android soon.

The app is simple to use, users just need to record a video and then decide what speed they want the finished clip to play back at. Users can choose video speeds from 1x to 12x. If you choose 1x you will get a smooth tracking shot that makes use of Instagram's own image stabilization algorithms. If you choose 12x speed it will result in a more traditional time-lapse video. The video is something you'd normally only get using a Steadicam or other, far more expensive equipment. Users also have the option to save the video and / or share it with friends on Facebook or Instagram.

"This is an app that let’s you be in the moment in a different way," Mike Krieger, Instagram co-founder and CTO, stated. "We did that by taking a pretty complicated image processing idea, and reducing it to a single slider. That’s super Instagram-y."

Instagram launched 'Bolt' video, photo and message sharing app last month. The app is a Snapchat clone and messages once read will disappear. Users can sign up using their phone numbers on the app and then add their friends to a list. Instagram has launched the Bolt messaging only in New Zealand, Singapore and South Africa for now.

According to reports Instagram will be adding new features including follow suggestions, trending hashtags, and “curated” content for users. The update is meant for both Android and iOS, but Instagram has not mentioned the roll out date.
