Instagram’s latest offering to the app world just rolled out this Tuesday, but it is already No. 3 among the free apps on the Apple app store. Hyperlapse allows users to create quick time-lapse videos with a single click of a button.
“We designed Hyperlapse to be as simple as possible,” Instagram wrote in the blog post announcing the app. It is, in fact, so simple that several ad agencies are offering lightning-quick office tours with it. Now brands are fiddling with it, too.
Here are 15 that have already created and shared their own Hyperlapses:
