How to Create a Time Lapse Video With Your iPhone

Time lapse photography is a filming technique that uses a lower frame rate for capturing video than is used for viewing it, resulting in a video that appears to be sped up. For example, you might record people walking through a park at one frame per second and play it back at 30 frames per second, resulting in something akin to a Benny Hill chase. Basically it is the opposite of slow motion. This technique is ideal for capturing motion that is too subtle for the human eye to appreciate, such as star movement, flowers blooming or clouds developing. It is also good for seeing long term progress, like watching the construction of a skyscraper, from beginning to end, in just a minute or two. iOS 8 has added this functionality to the Camera app, so now you can make your own time lapse videos with your iPhone or iPad.

Creating your own time lapse video is quite simple. Open your Camera and scroll over and select the "Time Lapse" option. Now all you have to do is tap record.

Why Can't I Leave or Delete a Person from a Group Message?

One of the most anticipated features in iOS 8 was the ability to leave or delete a person from a group message, but some users are reporting that the new feature does not work. This is because there are several factors that need to be met before you can use the option to leave or delete a person from a conversation of 4 or more people. First, lets look at how to leave a group message:

iOS 8 Group Messaging

You can leave a group message by entering the message thread and tapping the "Details" button in the top right corner. From here, you can either silence group texts by tapping the "Do Not Disturb" slider, or leave the group entirely by selecting the "Leave this conversation" option.

How to Add Widgets to Your Notification Center in iOS 8

Prior to iOS 8, Apple only allowed its native apps like Calendar, Reminders, and Stocks to push data to your Notification Center. To be sure, there were jailbreak tweaks such as NCWeather that would let you add widgets, but that was not sanctioned by Apple and could've nullified your warranty. With the latest iOS, however, Apple has opened up the Notification Center to third party developers and there are already a bunch of apps with widgets available. For example, if you have the Sports Center app, it now has a widget available that you can add to your NC, which will show you updated scores, news, etc.

If you have updated to iOS 8 and want to add a widget to your iPhone's Notification Center, here's how:

1. Make sure you have an updated version of your app that includes iOS 8 widgets.
