Microsoft's Hyperlapse is now more than just a clever idea in a research lab -- the folks in Redmond have released apps that help you record and produce super-stabilized videos on Android (in preview form), Windows and Windows Phone. Much like Instagram's software, the algorithmic tools whittle down your shaky footage into high-speed, smooth clips that your friends are more likely to watch. The big differences are in the amount of control you get. You can zip beyond Instagram's 6x speed limit, for example, and the desktop app (Hyperlapse Pro) uses 3D modelling to steady the footage from GoPros and other common action cameras.

All these apps are available today, although it's important to note that the Android edition only works on some phones at the moment. As for an iOS version? Microsoft tells us that it didn't write a client for that platform because there was already a competitor (no surprises as to who) in the App Store. It's "evaluating" an iOS release in the future, but you'll currently have to rely on that other Hyperlapse app if you want to produce shake-free iPhone videos.
