Multi-task?

Post by BWJones » Sat Apr 02, 2011 2:37 pm

It would be nice to have TimeLapse run in the background while I use another app like maps or take a phone call. Any chance of this happening soon?

P.S. Love the app.

At the moment, iOS disallows using the camera when the app is in the background. I would love to be able to do this but it can't be done until Apple changes iOS to allow it.

Ah, I remember that limitation. I see that you automatically save the movie out when capture is interrupted, which is an appropriate thing to do in these cases. Hopefully Apple alters iOS to let this happen.

Many thanks,
