Hyperlapse is an application that primarily operates as video software, specifically designed to produce hyperlapse and time-lapse videos. The app, which is 18.8 MB in size, supports up to 27 languages, including but not limited to English, Spanish, French, and German. Users are able to record videos up to 45 minutes in a single take and use an image stabilization algorithm[1] to maintain a steady video appearance. The app also allows modification of playback speed, ranging from 1x to 40x, but does not offer filter options like Instagram[2]. Currently, Hyperlapse is exclusively available for iOS[3] devices, although there are hints of a possible Android version in the future. This tool has been notably used in the creation of Fall Out Boys’ music video for “Centuries.” As of March 1, 2022, the app was removed from app stores by Instagram.

Terms definitions
1. algorithm. An algorithm is a well-defined sequence of instructions or rules that provides a solution to a specific problem or task. Originating from ancient civilizations, algorithms have evolved through centuries and are now integral to modern computing. They are designed using techniques such as divide-and-conquer and are evaluated for efficiency using measures like big O notation. Algorithms can be represented in various forms like pseudocode, flowcharts, or programming languages. They are executed by translating them into a language that computers can understand, with the speed of execution dependent on the instruction set used. Algorithms can be classified based on their implementation or design paradigm, and their efficiency can significantly impact processing time. Understanding and using algorithms effectively is crucial in fields like computer science and artificial intelligence.
2. Instagram ( Instagram ) Instagram is a social media platform, initially released in 2010 by founders Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger. It started as a check-in application named Burbn but later pivoted to a photo-sharing app, leading to the name Instagram. The platform is widely recognized for its photo and video sharing capabilities, complemented by features like hashtags, stories, and direct messaging. It has undergone significant growth and evolution over the years, expanding to multiple operating systems and continuously adding new tools and features. These include IGTV, Reels, and live streaming enhancements, aiming to enhance user experience. Instagram also focuses on user safety, implementing child safety policies, and privacy measures. It has become a key player in digital marketing, with advertising initiatives and influencer engagement strategies.

Hyperlapse is a mobile app created by Instagram that enables users to produce hyperlapse and time-lapse videos. It was released on August 26, 2014. The app enables users to record videos up to 45 minutes of footage in a single take, which can be subsequently accelerated to create a hyperlapse cinematographic effect. Whereas time-lapses are normally produced by stitching together stills from traditional cameras, the app uses an image stabilization algorithm that steadies the appearance of video by eliminating jitter. Unlike Instagram, the app offers no filters. Instead, the only post-production option available to users is the modification of playback speed which can range from 1x to 40x normal playback speed.
