Instagram threw a bone to creative types on Tuesday by releasing Hyperlapse, a new app for the iPhone that makes it easy to record time-lapse videos.

The new app records video at a lower frame-rate than normal then plays it back much faster. "Thus motion that takes a long time, like a flower blooming, appears to happen in real-time," Instagram said in an email to The Lose Angeles Times.

Hyperlapse also comes equipped with stabilization software, making videos recorded while moving or without a smartphone stand appear less shaky. Hyperlapse videos are saved into the iPhone camera roll and can be uploaded to Instagram and other apps.

The app is available now in the Apple App Store. There are no plans to bring Hyperlapse to Android due to technical limitations with Google’s mobile operating system.
