(CNET) – Creating a time-lapse video using your iOS device just got a lot easier (without the help of iOS 8, mind you). On Tuesday, Instagram released a stand-alone app called Hyperlapse.

Upon launching the app for the first time you’re walked through some example time-lapse videos, and then asked to grant permission for the app to access your Camera and Microphone.

Obviously lacking is the need to connect the app to your Instagram account. That’s right, Hyperlapse isn’t directly tied to your Instagram account — its primary job is to help you create videos.
