New App: PhotoChron Daily Timelapse lets you chronicle the little changes in your life
Digging through my GMail inbox yesterday and weeding through the ridiculous amount of app review requests I’ve gotten over the past few weeks, I came across a needle in a haystack.
While I usually get asked to review 2-3 apps a day on average, I only end up with a true gem once every couple of weeks; that’s exactly what I’ve got for you here today.
As a parent, let me start by saying that I’m in love with the concept of Andy Dyer-Smith‘s PhotoChron Daily Timelapse app. The app lets you take a photo every day, week or month and build it into a timelapse video for you to share with your family and friends.
Here’ what Andy has to say about PhotoChron:
The backstory is that I wanted to start taking a photo of my son every week or so. Being a bit of a geek I thought I’d build an Android App to help me. The result is Photochron, which is a free app that lets you take a series of photos and then join them into a video.I’ve been taking a photo of my son once a week for almost a year and here is the result:
Features of the app include:- Use a simple face outline or the previous frame to help you line up your photos- Set up reminders for every day, week or month- Photochron will detect faces to help with photo alignment if you ask it- Edit the alignment for old photos using pinch/zoom/rotate- Easy sharing to Youtube, Facebook, Google+ etc.It’s a free download, and is compatible with Gingerbread and upwards.
Since its release, PhotoChron has even caught the attention of makeuseof.com, one of the top 1000 websites in the entire world (#802 to be exact, as per Alexa), so we’re excited to have been considered for sharing this news with our readers.
One of the things I like most about the app is the ability to set reminders to take photos. With my busy schedule, if I don’t set an alarm or reminder, whatever it is that I’m supposed to be doing will more than likely not get done on time.
If you’d like to give PhotoChron a run for its money, head on over to the Google Play Store via the link below and pick it up for free.
