Selfies are a great way to take a snapshot of yourself, but what if you want to take them over the course of days or weeks to show progress? Luckily there’s an app for that, and it’s pretty nifty.

MyLapse provides users with a unique way to capture a moment every day, whether alone or with a friend. Developed by Nathan Rzeppa, this new selfie app gives users the opportunity to create something truly special using a photo a day.

Concept and Functionality:

If you love taking selfies, there’s a cool new way to turn them into something precious.

MyLapse is a fun app that lets you take a series of selfies and compile them into an animated GIF that is stored within the app.

To use MyLapse, simply open the app and choose whether you want to take a solo selfie or a duo. Once the frame is loaded, simply snap a photo. The app does the rest by automatically saving the photo to one of your lapses.

There are a ton of ways to use the app besides just taking a selfie for the sake of it. For example, you could use MyLapse for progress pictures during a vacation, bachelor party weekend, trying on different outfits, or whatever you’re doing that would be fun to see how things change from beginning to end.

Also, the subject doesn’t have to be a person’s face.

MyLapse is a very well-built photo app, and there are a few great features which make it even better. For example, you can easily create different lapse albums, which helps to keep photos organized.

Also, MyLapse includes optional reminders for you to take your daily photo. Reminders are very customizable and can be set for different days with ease.

Lastly, MyLapse lets you easily share your lapse GIFs via SMS, E-Mail, or Social Media right from inside the application itself. This makes it incredibly easy to export your creations for personal use, too.


MyLapse is available to download from the App Store for free and is designed for iPhone.

Overall, MyLapse is definitely a fantastic idea with great execution. This is a great way to easily capture a small moment of your day without really having to go out of the way to do so. Built-in reminders make this even easier, so I definitely recommend the app for anyone who likes selfies.

MyLapsemylapse.jpg requires iOS 7.1 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5, iPhone 6, and iPhone 6 Plus. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
