24/7 Time Lapse is designed with ultra low power consumption in mind to allow you to make Time-Lapse video over days, weeks and months using your Android phone or tablet. This application is designed to allow you to capture/run at least four times as many photos/long compared to the alternative applications.

Our internal test shows that this app was able to capture photos for over 30hrs in a single charge using Nexus One, Android 2.3 using our application's default settings while both WIFI and GSM radio are active. Our best competitor's application was only able to last at most 6 hr under the same conditions (http://tinyurl.com/p99ttzy).

With our amazing battery life, it is now possible for you use your everyday phone as your wearable life blogging camera, capturing every moment in your life or even capture information from your weather station.

- Auto stop capture when battery is low
- Capture photos continuously by running in background mode
- Customizable storage space & location
- Automatically recycle sdcard space when full, recycling can be disabled via option
- Built-in photo browser
- Adjustable camera focus mode and LED flash
- Adjustable shutter sound & screen brightness
- Movable overlay button on top of any application to start/stop photo capture
- Can be moved to SDcard after installation
- LCD screen will be keep on if you leave this app running in the foreground. The LCD screen will turn off according to your device's settings when in background mode.

To maximize your battery life when using this app, before you start photo capture, make sure you turn on airplane mode, check both WIFI and GPS are turned off. After photo capture is started, press Home button to put the app into background mode and then turn off the device's LCD screen as well.

To assemble the photos into a time-lapse video, you can use Ezvid (http://www.ezvid.com/) or MakeAVI (http://makeavi.sourceforge.net/) or Picasa 3 (http://picasa.google.com/) for Windows Computer; Time Lapse Assembler (http://www.dayofthenewdan.com/projects/time-lapse-assembler-1) for Mac OS X. More details can be found at our FAQ page - http://247timelapse.com/faq

Free version limitations:
- only capture photos up to 2MP
- application will stop after 20mins if charger is connected (this is only to allow you to test the application to make sure it works when charger is connected.)
- All exif image information including date taken, camera maker/model, exposure time, flash mode, etc are not recorded in the saved photo.
- photos recorded carries imprinted info

Device limitations:
- on some devices, the incompatibility of our power saving algorithm with the manufacturer's Android implementation means that 247timelapse will not take photo when the screen is off. However, it will take photo with the screen off when it is connected to a power supply or screen on when not connected to power supply. To keep the screen on, simply leave 247timelapse app running in the foreground. To save power when screen is on, you could configure the screen brightness to minimum inside settings.

Known bug
- If you turn off the LCD when the app is recording in the foreground. Recording will stop.

    5 sec minimum between shot is not enough. Reply: look at some apps in the store, they even have 1/500 of a second. Lapseit

    Great app but would be much handier if I could use it in portrait mode.
