Doing a lot of construction timelapse videos here at FilmSpektakel we always wondered if it was possible to shoot construction timelapse with a smartphone. So we got into the matter and created a prototype with which we successfully shot several construction sites.

After three years of hard work, we are proud to announce the release of TimelapseRobot, our new Android app that allows users to easily and affordably capture longterm timelapse videos with their smartphones. TimelapseRobot is perfect for professionals and novices alike to capture stunning footage of landscapes, cityscapes, and more.
