Updated: Hyperlapse for Windows Phone app

The Lumia 1020 and other Lumia phones that shipped with Windows Phone 8 can now use the mobile Hyperlapse app to create amazing videos.

When Microsoft in May launched Microsoft Hyperlapse—a new technology that creates smooth and stable time-lapsed first-person videos—folks with Lumia phones with Windows Phone 8.1 were able to download the Hyperlapse for Windows Phone app. People who use the Lumia Icon were able to install the mobile app as of May 29.

Now, those with phones with Windows Phone 8.1 that originally shipped with Windows Phone 8.0, such as the Lumia 1020 and Lumia 920, can now install the app, too.

The mobile Windows Phone app has just been updated so those Lumia owners can now have full creative rein to record and save their first-person videos in multiple speeds and share them with their friends and family.*

In addition, the updated Hyperlapse for Windows Phone app includes increases in video-recording limits as well as algorithm improvements to make the app even easier to use. That means you can show more of your favorite mountain hike, for example, or bicycle ride on the beachfront.
