Instagrams iPhone app for high quality Time-lapse video capture, Hyperlapse, debuted a month ago.

On Thursday, the software received its first update as developers released version 1.1 which has added native display support for the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus phones.

In addition, there’s a new ‘selfielapse’ mode which uses the front-facing FaceTime camera to create cool Time-lapses.

This edition of Hyperlapse includes bug fixes and reliability improvements as well. The app is available free of charge in the App Store.

So there you have it, now you can goof with your friends in front of your iPhone to record a Time-lapse of your selfies — how cool is that?

If you haven’t checked Hyperlapse out yet, you’re missing out on some rather unbelievable cinema stabilization which will make your shaky clips look like you’ve used a steady cam.

The 9.7-megabyte app is universal and runs natively on any iPhone, iPod touch or iPad model supported by iOS 7.0 or later.

Hyperlapse 1.1 changelog:

  • Record a selfielapse using the front facing camera!
  • Enjoy updated designs on iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.
  • Bug fixes and reliability improvements

As you know, iOS 8’s Camera app has introduced the brand new Time-lapse video capture mode. Although it has no controls whatsoever, it’s nonetheless plenty smart.

According to Dan Provost of Studio Neat, Camera in iOS 8 doubles the speed of the Time-lapse and takes half as many pictures per second as the recording duration doubles. This ensures that your Time-lapses are always between 20 and 40 seconds long, an ideal shareable length.
