Instagram Releases New Video App Called Hyperlapse

Love taking Instagram videos but hate how much space they take up on your phone? Or how about that oh-so-frustrating shaky hand syndrome? Or perhaps you just want to be able to make those supercool time-lapse videos without spending tons of time editing. Well, fret no more. Instagram has just released a new video app called Hyperlapse that should basically eliminate both problems.

According to Instagram's blog, "Traditionally, time-lapse videos depend on holding your phone or camera still while you film. Hyperlapse from Instagram features built-in stabilization technology that lets you create moving, handheld time lapses that result in a cinematic look, quality and feel — a feat that has previously only been possible with expensive equipment."

Take a look below to see all Hyperlapse can do ... and be prepared for a flood of time-lapse videos in your Instagram feed this week.

Hyperlapse is currently available for free in the iTunes App Store.
