Want high-speed selfies? Try Instagram app

Published On: Mon, Sep 29th, 2014 | Telecommunications | By BioNews

If you have not tried Instagram’s new app for a high-speed selfie to woo your girlfriend, you are definitely missing out on some great action here.

Instagram had come up with a time-lapse app called Hyperlapse that allowed you to shoot videos with your iPhone’s rear-facing camera.

Now, Instagram has added a new feature to it that lets you flip your phone to use your front-facing camera for a high-speed selfie too, media reports said.

This is how it works.

Users need to open the app and they are taken straight to the camera. To start and stop recording one needs to tap the screen. Users can then select a playback speed between 1x-12x. And then you could achieve the following.

Stand still and have a moving background.

Capture yourself walking down the street as your surroundings whirl by.

Document transformations – getting a new haircut, applying makeup or tying a tie – by propping your phone up against a wall.

Hold up your phone as you spin around in a chair or jump.

You can share Hyperlapse videos to Instagram or Facebook and the firm plans to bring the app to Android users too in the near future.
