Selfies just got a whole lot fancier. Not that they weren’t already the best thing since sliced bread, but wait until you hear this news! Before an app update yesterday, you could only shoot with the rear-facing camera on Instagram‘s popular time-lapse video app, Hyperlapse. With the app’s new front-facing camera option, selfies will never be the same. Now you can record what the company calls a “selfielapse” with just the touch of a button.
Hyperlapse now lets you flip to using your front-facing camera. Instagram recommends a few ways to use it:
Like before, you can share Hyperlapse videos to Instagram, Facebook, or to your camera roll.
The company won’t say how soon the app would be coming to Android, but said “We hope to bring Hyperlapse to Android in the future. Unfortunately, the requisite APIs are not currently available on Android.” — The Verge
Oh, Android. *sigh*
So, that’s what I’ve got. I’m going to keep it short because it’s Friday and I need to get to the Agents of Change Conference (if you’re interested, you can follow all of the digital marketing action on Twitter with the hashtag #aoc2014). Plus, I just told you about selfielapse. How much more excitement could you take in one day? Go ahead, admit it. Your life will never be the same.
