Microsoft is working on a new app named Hyperlapse. Originally surfaced a few days ago, Hyperlapse is aimed to make all the GoPro videos captured with a helmet camera during activities such as rock climbing or bicycling more watchable than ever. You can’t watch the video of someone climbing a mountain from a first person perspective, when you watch it in 10x speed, it will become too shaky. Here’s our quick look at Hyperlapse Mobile Beta:
We managed to squeeze the app on to our Lumia 830 for testing purposes. The app is still in beta, so the final product may look different when it gets released. It allows you to shoot stabilized videos from 1x speed to all the way up to 32x speed. Want to see the app in action? Check out our hands-on video.
The app is rather a simple app with no complex controls. On the current version, the Hyperlapse has a record button on the right and two buttons on the left to enable the front-facing camera and the rear LCD light. When you tap the record button, a timer starts on the lower left corner along with an estimated time of the resulting hyperlapse at 8x speed.
