Microsoft launches Hyperlapse for Android and Windows Phone: say goodbye to shaky videos
posted by Florin T. / May 14, 2015, 9:50 AM
The Microsoft Hyperlapse app is free, and lets you create timelapse videos at various speed rates, from 1x to 32x. Windows Phone users can install the app on the following devices: HTC One M8 for Windows, Lumia 435, Lumia 530, Lumia 532, Lumia 535, Lumia 630, Lumia 635, Lumia 636, Lumia 638, Lumia 640, Lumia 640 XL, Lumia 730, Lumia 735, Lumia 830, Lumia 930, and Lumia 1520.
As for Android, Hyperlapse is currently a beta app, so it's not yet available from Google Play. But you can join the Microsoft Hyperlapse Mobile for Android community (see the second source link below) to get access to the application. Right now, the app can be installed on these Android devices: Samsung Galaxy S5, Samsung Galaxy Note 4, Samsung Galaxy S6, Samsung Galaxy S6 edge, Google Nexus 5, Google Nexus 6, Google Nexus 9, HTC One M8, HTC One M9, and Sony Xperia Z3.
You can check out some videos made with Microsoft Hyperlapse in the slideshow below. They all look pretty good (just make sure to view them in HD):

But why same name as Instagram HYPERLAPSE? Is it a collaboration with them? Won't IG sue MS for this?

Great... it won't even work on my Lumia 1020. Thanks Microsoft! Continually ignoring one of the best phone cameras out there.

Its would probably work but they want to promote phone you can actually buy now so they increase the profit they make. Same thing for the android model supported.

Love how many of their recent programs are simple yet very powerful and the best part...FREE. For example Microsoft Image Composite, which also has a simple UI and stictches photos surprisingly well. :D

Those support thing are crap. Pretty sure its would work on ANY android handset on 4.0 and more. Its like an app for PTT we have at Telus called Telus Link ( Telus is a Canadian Cellphone provider ) On the Android market about 5 phones are compatible but i took the app installed it on a compatible handset and used myappsharer app to share it by email in apk and i installed it in every single android phone we have in store ( new and used ) its worked flawlessly on all device. Thats called marketing and its wrong.

Where are all the hypocrite windows Phone fans that complain about small companies not porting over apps to wp8? The multi billion dollar company Microsoft can at most support up to the Z3/Nexus 5 and above and they have lots of money and time. Of course smaller companies with less staff and time will not bother with wp8 if Microsoft can't even bother with Android devices older than a Nexus 5.

Finally android users get to have fun with this. Awesome technique - use it as often as regular camera because it allows to speed up or slow down to 12x-1x. Apple photo app automatically compensates for shakiness with software on my 5s, hyperlapse takes it a step further. Since you were missing out for a long long while, here are the cool things to try: 1. Walk down the beach and hold camera in your hand at waist or at chest for a mile 2. Try it in car with a mount facing forward or 3/4 view to side while traveling - it's really cool 3. Circle around the court filming the players while people are playing tennis, basketball, soccer. 4. Underwater swims (did it with my iPhone with a vivid filter) I used a snorkel when I filmed it 5. And if u don't have time lapse feature on your native camera, you can use this for that on a tripod or something 6. Snowboarding (haven't tried that myself) but I've seen my friends video 7. Carry it close to the ground as if you're a small rodent - gives you a different point of view 8. If u want to film something around your car or a person or a house - this is best to do that with. Enjoy it android guys - you have been missing out.
