iOS4 Bugs

By cclaan

Hi Everyone,

This is a quick post to let people know we are aware of the iOS4 bugs and we’re working on an update.

We are aware of the bugs related to iphone 4, and we’re sorry we don’t have a fix. We planned on doing a quick update but it turned out to be more work than we thought to update for iOS4. Please be patient with us and we should have a fix coming before christmas.

Here are the bugs we’re aware of:

  • You can’t disable the flash on iPhone 4.
  • Crashes upon trying to watch a rendered video.
  • Crashes sometimes after exiting a capture session.
  • iPhone 4 highest resolution is not recognized

For now, you can still capture at other resolutions, and all of your frames will be saved even if it crashes ( just make sure you’re not in ‘Render During Capture’ mode. )

Again, sorry for the lack of updates.

Would you be able to look into disabling the camera shutter noise when its taking the frames. It gets very annoying in some instances will taking frames.

Hi Chris,

Excellent product this!

I own a 3G and a 4, both on iOS4.2 and I want to transfer my rendered time lapse for 3G to 4 but cannot do it. Can’t even shift it to camera roll as resolution is high. Email is out of question too due to the high resolution. So how do I do it? On a Mac, of course. Tried using a PC to read memory contents but nope. So, you’d have to do it like Apple’s iMovie – save it to camera roll immediately, and read it from there later.

How about a mailing list here on the website, so I get to know when it works with my new iPhone 4?..

December 27th, 2010


Have you got more news about the update?
Can’t wait to make new time lapse with my iphone 4.



January 5th, 2011

So what happened with having an update before Christmas

Carol P

Would love to see an update that would fix all the crashing for sure. I used to use this all the time and it was great, now I went to do a nice high rez time lapse of the new years eve sunset and new years day sunrise and got them ok but coulding render in anything but 800x 600 as the 3gs setting would either crash while making it or would cut the video short and make it a corrupt file.

I have a 3gs on 4.0.1

January 6th, 2011

I’m glad to hear from you guys. Even more that you want to update Timelapse.
Have been using your app it sucessfully on my 3 gs, but now the app is virtually rendered useless because of the flash issue on iPhone 4 (and 4+ ^^, watch out for CES ‘11). Beside that, your app is STILL unmatched in features and my personel #1!!!

Just try to show a sign of life from time to time^^
Last app update was postet 12/14/09.

Looking forward to the update!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

January 10th, 2011

Oh c’mon guys christmas has gone, now is 11 of january! Please hurry up to update the app!

Any word on when a fix will be released?

January 13th, 2011

Crashes are irrelevant and the highest resolution not being recognized is also not a problem.

Its the flash on iPhone 4 that makes the app almost useless.

When is the fix coming up?


January 13th, 2011


I used to love iTimelapse. Now I’m feeling a bit disappointed.
So please please please.
Could you please give us a sign that you are still alive. I’m soon calling the Swat team to chec u r ok.
So if you are still alive after the tremendous new years partying PLEASE give us a word or 2. Somethin like “yep we’re on it”.

Screw coming on here to see if an OS4 update exists.. I am starting to wonder if the developers exist! Funny how you have time to release other apps but you do not have time to do a bug fix. I’m sure it has nothing to do with the fact that you will receive thousands of dollars in sales of a new app as opposed to not making any profit off updating an app you already made. You guys already have all our $ so no need to even respond to us anymore. Go look at all the requests for support and help on this app in not just your website but also 3rd party websites and you guys don’t even respond. Then you post this silly little statement saying you will have the update done by Christmas. What year did you mean because Xmas is long over with. And not a single trace of you guys nor and answers to our questions. Y

What year did you mean because Xmas is long over with. And not a single trace of you guys nor and answers to our questions. You guys are looking like a couple of immature highschool kids. Now man up and follow through with your responsibility’s like a mature adult and give us OS 4 support as promised or return our money immediately until you can function like a responsible business. Do not bore us with anymore of your empty promises about being patient because support is coming. I want my $ back till you can release the update. I have cached this page and all others regarding this issue and if no response is received by 1-20-2011 I’m going to post it on every iPhone and Droid website I can find warning people not to purchase your products.

Talk to you in a couple days ,

Waiting for update!?!?

January 24th, 2011

Um… ETA for the fix??

January 25th, 2011

Hey guys.
Please. Just give us ETA. Something. Anything.
There is no point to have an internet site if you are not using it as a communication tool. So, if you are still part of the civilization called human race give us a sign. I understand your silence only if you are in jail or in other kind of serious trouble. As you see there is no point giving us waiting and saying nothing. We are getting frustrated and you know what. That reflects to your bank account negatively. I’m really disappointed to see this kind of ehem..”service” nowadays. Internet is for communication. Come on and wake up for heavens sake.

January 26th, 2011

Would be GREAT if we could have HDR work in the updated version.

Timelapse is particularly good for skylines etc – but you really need HDR to make it work well….

Look forwards to the update.

February 1st, 2011

Update ?!?! I love the app, but not on the iphone 4! :-(

Plse. hurry up guys – if this app would have been for free – I would´nt disturb that way, but plse. release an update !!!

matthew o tuama
February 2nd, 2011

this is disgracefull….the app has more problems than you will not work with any resolution on ios4… have no warning about this on your app store sales page…this is missleading and highly questionable conduct……all who downloaded should contact apple…as you are still taking the money….itimelapse is obsolete….and ..its developers are not honourable towards their customers…..maybe a new site should be set up to high light this scam!!!!

February 9th, 2011

These assholes have all the time in the world to produce new app’s and collect new money but they do not have time to update their app’s. Everyone who is having trouble with this app PLEASE file a complaint onApp Store/itunes. When you go to purchase this app at the very bottom there is reviews and a link to “Report a problem”. It is very quick and easy. If we get enough complaints we can get these guys shut down. They are not going to update the app. If you look at the website and reviews its nothing but people complaining. People have been asking for an update for almost 2 years. I would not waste your time asking for the update. Just report the app as fraud to itunes. People like this should not get rich off people like us. But we are the only ones who can stop it.

February 9th, 2011

Okay guys. I give up. You are being totally unprofessional here. Looks like you don’t understand what customers are saying to you.
I hope you read at least the mail from Apple when it arrives. It might be on it’s way.
This is not acceptable behavior in the world of business.
I will not buy any app from you. Would have bought the DJ app, but now,..sorry guys, naaaah. I have also started informing and warning dear iPhone users about your customer service. Just to let you know.. if you start to wonder why you don’t get money from the other apps.

Still hope you get back on your feet and do what you promised but I really don’t think it will happen.

February 9th, 2011

When is the new update going to be released… can’t be that hard to fix!

February 15th, 2011

Which christmas r u talking about?

February 17th, 2011

Why don’t we get the new update or at minimum, a small comment of the developer? I don’t think a behaviour like that fits to any kind of business!

sad & angry cheers

I now have to export all of the frames to my photo app on my iphone4 and then upload them using Image Capture. this is outrageous.

Brian Benthin
February 25th, 2011

Update the app as promised or refund iPhone 4 users. Pretty simple.

February 28th, 2011

Glad I read all these complaints. I was going to buy it but decided to do some research. Seems shady.

February 28th, 2011

Looking for a good to app for iphone 4.

I an guessing that this is no longer the one?

Can anyone give me a buyers guide, or even an outright recommendation?

I am guessing there are gotchas on each product, that would be great to know before hand


March 5th, 2011

I’m glad i read these reviews before purchasing. What other time lapse apps are you guys using?

Capturing works perfectly on iPhone 4. However, you can only save the video to camera roll if it’s rendered at 800×600. Once it’s rendered, you can upload directly to Facebook or Youtube via the app. Exporting from the camera roll produces a corrupt movie. Bummed out.

March 7th, 2011

I just got the App and it’s a shame to see such a great App go to waste for the bugs it has on iPhone 4. The FLASH is my biggest gripe. It sucks if you’re trying to capture a sunset or something at night.
I can’t believe there isn’t a single word of even an ETA for the fix from the developer. I see they can change the price on the App store but not spend 5 minutes updating their clients on the situation.

March 7th, 2011

Love this app. Yes, there are bugs with it, but these bugs can be overcome. But it requires you phone to be jailbroken. All you have to do is ssh into your phone and copy the movies to your computer or to another directory on your phone.

The app is still good for taking awesome timelapses, but you have to be paitent with it and know that there is a good chance that it won’t work. Other then that, it’s fun to play around with.

March 8th, 2011

move on guys. i deleted the app and paid nexvio for their timelapse app – REELMOMENTS. for ip4, it renders out to max HD quality. i dont mind paying another US1.99 for a much more reputable company than one that doesn’t responds to their customers.

fire up appstore and search nexvio. they are the makers of reel directors, 8mm vintage, cinemafx for video (all of which is in my iphone 4). reel moment is the latest edition.

nexvio is great for video apps… for photos.. ermmm, i dont have their cinemafx & focus something.. lol…

so cheer up iphoneographers! life is too short so screw the muted developers?

March 19th, 2011

Come on, where’s the fix? What sort of outfit are you running?

March 25th, 2011

I have really enjoyed this app but since upgrading the ios4.3 note that the app crashes when trying to save after rendering. Unfortunately this makes that app unusable. I really hope you do release an upgrade as I believe it was one of the better if not the best time lapse app.

March 27th, 2011

Crash immediately after render completes. Iphone 4 and 3GS.

ISO4.3.1 still the same. Please have a fix.

April 1st, 2011

jepp, app is useless and the devs are scamming the customers. awoid this app and this dev crew.

for timelaps app get ReelMoments, its way simpler, got better resolution, no reders, and it just works great compared to this junk.

April 6th, 2011

Ce sont des voleurs… ca ne marche pas sur l’ iphone 4

April 7th, 2011

Fantastic product and app – I used it Manu times and even reviewed it on my blog. But is there any news on getting a fix for the rendering issues?

Antilia Virginie
April 11th, 2011

Hi ! It would be nice if we could make a video with camera roll’s frames. And is it possible to make a video with our own music ? Thanks

April 11th, 2011

Rendering impossible with 4.3.1. Please fix this great product!

April 17th, 2011

I like this app very much, Thanks for your good job. But now is 2011.4.18, When can bug be fixed?

Tim Roberts
April 19th, 2011

Guys! We need news on this fix… it’s killin’ me!

I only bought the app last week after watching summat my mate did on his 3GS … i bought it, did a full 4000 frames that took over 5 hours and i can’t even watch it!

it even tells me that my resolution is 0×0


come on guys… just a wee update.

April 21st, 2011

An update and a bugfix is on the way, huh??!!!

You mean to say it is on the way since Nov15 2010, i.e. it is on its way since well over 5 months???

Screw all of you and your staff and all of your products!!! I surely hope your business will go down the drain completely!!! Fuck LaanLabs!!!

April 22nd, 2011

before christmas?
It is Eastern and we are still waiting for !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Robert Lach
April 22nd, 2011

You know the bug till november and now after 5 month no updater????
Did you give up?????

April 27th, 2011

Are you planning to update this app? If not, you really should remove it from the app store and take this site down. I shot 4 timelapse videos today, which had fairly critical content. Now I am stuck with no way to export the photos and no way to render the videos.

April 30th, 2011

purtroppo ormai da tempo, iOS4, va in crash quando si esegue il rendering!!
Altro problema è il salvataggio dei video che se più grandi di 10 MB non si possono importare per e-mail!!
Quando hanno risoluzione sopra i 480×640 non si possono spostare in camera Roll.
Insomma, video sopra una certa risoluzione o più grandi di 10 MB RIMANGONO ESCLUSIVAMENTE SULLA APP.
questo significa che disinstallare l’app vuol dire semplicemente PERDERLI.


April 30th, 2011

Look, I know you didn’t specify /which/ Christmas and we all just /assumed/ 2010, but any news on a fix yet?

May 1st, 2011

Yeah this is garbage. Get back to work tards, you never solved that crash problem

May 4th, 2011

Seriously guys! This is a total rip-off !!! Do your job or remove it from the store!!!

Secondly I found a workaround for the iPhone 4 users with the rendering crash problem:
-Open the app and click on the project you want to export
-Click on Details in the bottom left corner
-Click Edit Frames
-Choose export frames
This will save all stills to your camera roll. Use iStopMotion or Quicktime to create your Timelapse video

May 9th, 2011

Why dit i pay for a app that does not work!
The idea is great, but if it does not work you should remove it from the store!

May 9th, 2011

Hey, its been a year and no updates to fix the render-crashing bug. Are you aware of that? Are you planning to get the fix? Do you even exist?

May 10th, 2011

Since these people Are not responding I just downloaded “timeLapse” simpler and it works

May 13th, 2011

It was one of the most interesting applications of the app store!
SHAME !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Update or remove from the store

May 17th, 2011

Have you taken the money and run? I want a fix or my money back. You guys have hade like a half year to fix this bug. I cant do shit with my itimelapse!

May 18th, 2011

Please give us an update! I bought it on my 3GS and used it nearly daily, – it was a great tool for my daily life ut now on iPHone 4 its unusuable!Please give us an update!

May 21st, 2011

I think going on selling this bugged app is something like robbery. Removing the app from the store would be a minimum.
Bought it in the beginning of April ‘11, should have checked these comments before !

May 21st, 2011

I just finished a 5 hour render. ANNOYING
iPhone 4 crash.

My question to you guys. I think it recorded, so where are the images?

Why cant I just pull them from my iPhone and render in quicktime?

May 22nd, 2011

seriously? when’s the update? so it can render…

seems a pretty major flaw in the product…

May 25th, 2011

The long awaited update is finally here guys. It fixes all the problems we were having

September 12th, 2011

Thanks for your post. One other thing is the fact individual American states have their own personal laws which affect home owners, which makes it quite difficult for the Congress to come up with a whole new set of guidelines concerning property foreclosures on home owners. The problem is that every state offers own laws and regulations which may work in an unfavorable manner on the subject of foreclosure guidelines.

Howdy! Someone in my Myspace group shared this website with us so I came to give it a look. I’m definitely enjoying the information. I’m book-marking and will be tweeting this to my followers! Outstanding blog and amazing design.

At this time it appears like Movable Type is the best blogging platform out there right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you’re using on your blog?

Howdy! Do you know if they make any plugins to help with Search Engine Optimization? I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted keywords but I’m not seeing very good gains. If you know of any please share. Many thanks!

When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get several e-mails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service? Cheers!

I just added this webpage to my feed reader, great stuff. Cannot get enough!

Howdy! I’m at work surfing around your blog from my new iphone 3gs! Just wanted to say I love reading your blog and look forward to all your posts! Carry on the excellent work!

A lot of what you say is supprisingly appropriate and it makes me ponder the reason why I hadn’t looked at this in this light before. Your piece really did switch the light on for me as far as this specific subject goes. Nonetheless there is 1 position I am not necessarily too comfy with and whilst I make an effort to reconcile that with the main idea of your point, permit me see exactly what the rest of your visitors have to say.Very well done.

I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is needed to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100% sure. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Appreciate it

I think one of your adverts caused my internet browser to resize, you may well want to put that on your blacklist.

My programmer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses. But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type on numerous websites for about a year and am nervous about switching to another platform. I have heard very good things about Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into it? Any help would be really appreciated!

Hey there superb blog! Does running a blog similar to this take a large amount of work? I’ve very little understanding of programming however I was hoping to start my own blog in the near future. Anyways, should you have any recommendations or techniques for new blog owners please share. I understand this is off topic nevertheless I just wanted to ask. Thanks a lot!

Hi! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog. Is it hard to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Cheers

At this time it appears like Drupal is the best blogging platform available right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on your blog?

Nice blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere? A theme like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog jump out. Please let me know where you got your theme. Cheers

Hey there would you mind letting me know which web host you’re working with? I’ve loaded your blog in 3 different browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot quicker then most. Can you suggest a good internet hosting provider at a honest price? Thank you, I appreciate it!

that became the national symbol.ONPut the cost of a $138watch as much as $178 and people will turn away. While you are it valid that the common gladness in a bestThailand has little to fear from Malaysia as an automotive hub

I love your wp theme, wherever did you download it through?

Hello! Someone in my Facebook group shared this site with us so I came to look it over. I’m definitely enjoying the information. I’m bookmarking and will be tweeting this to my followers! Excellent blog and excellent design and style.

This design is spectacular! You obviously know how to keep a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Fantastic job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. Too cool!

I do not know if it’s just me or if everyone else experiencing issues with your website. It seems like some of the written text in your content are running off the screen. Can somebody else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them as well? This may be a problem with my web browser because I’ve had this happen previously. Many thanks

I do enjoy the manner in which you have framed this particular difficulty and it does present us a lot of fodder for consideration. Nonetheless, coming from what I have witnessed, I only trust when other feedback stack on that people today continue to be on point and in no way get started upon a tirade associated with the news du jour. All the same, thank you for this excellent piece and whilst I can not necessarily agree with this in totality, I regard your viewpoint.

Hi! I’ve been following your web site for a long time now and finally got the bravery to go ahead and give you a shout out from Dallas Tx! Just wanted to tell you keep up the good work!

Cool blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere? A design like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog stand out. Please let me know where you got your design. Thank you
