About this app

24/7 Time Lapse is designed with ultra low power consumption in mind to allow you to make Time-Lapse video over days, weeks and months using your Android phone or tablet. This application is designed to allow you to capture/run at least four times as many photos/long compared to the alternative applications.

Our internal test shows that this app was able to capture photos for over 50hrs in a single charge using Sony Xperia Z, Android 4.4 using our application's default settings while both WIFI and GSM radio are active. Our best competitor's application was only able to last at most 6 hr under the same conditions (http://tinyurl.com/p99ttzy).

With our amazing battery life, it is now possible for you use your everyday phone as your wearable life blogging camera, capturing every moment in your life or even capture information from your weather station.

- Auto stop capture when battery is low
- Capture photos continuously by running in background mode
- Customizable storage space & location & orientation
- Automatically recycle sdcard space when full, recycling can be disabled via option
- Built-in photo browser
- Adjustable camera focus mode and LED flash
- Adjustable shutter sound & screen brightness
- Movable overlay button on top of any application to start/stop photo capture
- Can be moved to SDcard after installation
- LCD screen will be keep on if you leave this app running in the foreground. The LCD screen will turn off according to your device's settings when in background mode.
- Can be configured to start at boot to resume capture if forcibly closed while capturing photos

To maximize your battery life when using this app, before you start photo capture, make sure you turn on airplane mode, check both WIFI and GPS are turned off. After photo capture is started, press Home button to put the app into background mode and then turn off the device's LCD screen as well.

To assemble the photos into a time-lapse video, you can use Ezvid (http://www.ezvid.com/) or MakeAVI (http://makeavi.sourceforge.net/) or Picasa 3 (http://picasa.google.com/) for Windows Computer; Time Lapse Assembler (http://www.dayofthenewdan.com/projects/time-lapse-assembler-1) for Mac OS X.

I want to document our house build using an old phone mounted in the window of a shed. Many hours of searching, and starting to think I might have to write my own app, I found this. It seems, in my very brief testing, to do exactly what I want. Nothing more, nothing less. To the 1-star reviews: Did you even read the description/notes? I also like the developer's responses to reviews. Most of the missing features I want are in the paid version, so if my testing is successful, I'll get the paid version. The one missing feature I really want is the ability to 'sleep' it at night/weekends (ie, when nothing is happening). 4 stars so far!

Can't use zoom function, or is the camera app designed not to zoom? Edit: added 1 more star for responding timely. I do notice poor quality image saved. Will buying the pro version allow higher quality image to be saved?

Not designed to zoom. Almost all phone camera does not have optical zoom, so not much point. Edit: Yes, the paid version allows you to set any photo resolution your camera can support, as described in the app listing.
