These are instructions on how to restore your clips from our January 30th update that wiped your projects. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to reach out directly to our founder, Sarah, at We are sorry again for the inconvenience that this has caused and are taking measure to ensure this doesn’t happen again.

Step 1

Go to the Apple App store. On the bottom tab, click “Updates”, then update Life Lapse. This should be version 0.19.2. If you don’t see the update, it may have autoupdated already.

Step 2

You can confirm you have you have the most current version of the app by using the search feature in the app store and searching “Life Lapse”. From here, it will say 0.19.2 under “What’s New Text”,


Step 3

Create a new project. Make sure you name the project something other than “new project”. You can change the title of the project by tapping on the text.

Step 6

There will be an option to recover photo clips or video clips. Select one of the two. You will see a large list of files from here. From here, you can open the individual files or slide left on the file to select multiple files.


Step 7

When you open the clip, click on the top right hand side “+” sign.
