Apple invents time lapse photography, lawsuits against time travelling patent infringers pending.

That's really an excellent app for a mobile phone.

It enhances the convenience factor when it's sitting on a tripod in the same place for a week taking pictures... that way nobody can call you when you're out and waste your time.

Yeah, that'd be a silly use... But, then again, how many places are now using iPads as point-of-sale terminals?

Add in time-lapse photography in there with a picture taken every 15 or 30 seconds, and there's your cheap and well integrated security system.

I have never seen that in use. Also, in that picture you'd get a solid shot of someone's hands.

There's a local grocer near me that uses one. And the front-facing iPad camera in that picture is in the center of the bezel on the left, about an inch or so above the cashier's left thumb. It would get a nice picture of the face of the person inputting any transaction.

Wouldn't it make more sense to have it take a picture every time a card is swiped? Maybe add in some facial recognition and take several until you get a good shot.

Sure, although if you've got tons of storage (which you would, since it's not like you're downloading and watching movies on your point of sale terminal), why not use it as a security system too? It would also get a picture of anyone standing there and trying to open a register drawer (if you also take cash).

iPhones suck because they don't let me use a command line to directly access processor registers while I'm wardriving. Or something like that.

You mean sort of like people have been taking with 42 megapixel Nokia 1020 lumias for a while now?

Good to see apple attempting to catch up. Hopefully they'll start bumping up the resolution on the cameras sometime soon.

The quality of footage and stills the Nokia phones can capture are ridiculous:

I guess the Android app that does the same thing that I have had for a few years now will be taken off the market since the creator will now be sued by Apple.

I set one of these up in my buddy's bar.  It's really nice.  He can check the register in real time from anywhere with his phone.

There have been several really nice apps for time lapse on the iPhone.

apple destroys several company's business by copying their existing apps and putting them in the core for 'free'?

Would this in any way not be the same as the exact thing apple and most of you who support them strongly objected to microsoft doing with internet explorer, media player etc in windows?

Apple doesn't have a monopoly would be the obvious answer.

Because it is currently so hard to track down criminals who swipe their credit cards before robbing the place. Definitely couldn't do it without a camera.

I had a time lapse app for my android phone about three or four years ago.  I used it when I was stuck in my room on call nights at the hospital.  I'm shocked this wasn't available for apple at the same time.

Honestly, the more I play around with my wife's iphone, the less impressed I am.  Maybe they were top dog for a long time, but they are just coming up with time lapse?  Seriously?  And when their best map application is made by their competitor, something is off.

Where apple has windows and android beat is the availability of stereos and other products that can take a phone connection and use it as a stereo.  It frustrates me to no end to see so many options for an iphone and not a single one for android unless it's bluetooth.  Boo!

If you'd just let people know what physical connector Android uses, maybe they'd use it? And so what if Apple does make the best maps app. IT'S A SMARTPHONE, pick a new maps app that is better.

So what if Apple doesn't make the best maps app. There's no way that was some unconscious slip. I hate Apple's map app. It has my neighborhood so messed up it is unbelievable.

Last time I used Google maps to figure out how to get somewhere, it told me to go out of my driveway, turn right, drive 50 yards, then do a U-turn. Brilliant. It then directed me to a freeway on-ramp several miles from where I live, instead of the one I can see out my window. Awesome.
