On the downside, since your Android phone is not designed to be mounted on a tripod, you’ll certainly have some trouble to keep your phone fixed on some surface to capture the photos. It goes without saying that the camera has to remain still for the set time duration to capture good quality time-lapsed photos.

Also, if you wish to capture many photos for over an hour, ensure that your phone remains plugged to the charger, thanks to the power hungry nature of Android OS. It has been observed that using Lapse It Pro mobile application for an hour caused the battery to drop its charge by over 70%. Watch out for this eventuality.

But the app has enough options/features to satisfy your craving for some amateurish time-lapsed photography. You’ll have trouble in fixing your phone stationary for the job, and the fast draining battery won’t help matters either. But these little downsides won’t trouble you much as long as you’re driven by the passion for time-based photography. Verdict: Try it out if you love photography.
