Just when we're getting used to Instagram's 15 second video function, the photo sharing application has released a new application to feed our Instagram uploads. Featuring Hyperlapse; a stand-alone app that allows users to shoot time-lapse videos.

How it works is that you shoot a video like you normally would up to minutes, once done, Hyperlapse will do its magic. Instead of filters, you choose speed options accelerating the clip anywhere from 2x to 12x the normal rate. Normally, to achieve this effect user would use some fancy extended tools or camera application, but now it can be done simply using your smart phone.

According to Wired, this new application is inspired by Instagram's data engineer, Thomas Dimson's fascination with the movie, Baraka, an art film based on epic tracking shots of people all across the world. Since then, a time lapse feature for Instagram has always been at the back of Thomas' mind.

Unfortunately for Android phones, Hyperlapse is only available for iPhones as of now. While we Android users groan for our turn to play with the app, iPhone users can download Hyperlapse via App Store.
