If you take a look at the Apple App Store Top Free Apps chart, you’ll find an unfamiliar app in second place — a new social media app called Lapse.
Lapse takes the appeal of a disposable camera, combines it with social media, and uses a unique recruiting technique to bring you an experience that distinguishes itself from any other popular social media app currently on the market.
Whether you have gotten a Lapse invite from one of your friends and want to learn more about it, are thinking about downloading it, or just want to know why the app is receiving so much hype, here’s everything you need to know.
You are notified once the pictures have developed, and then you can begin the selection process of swiping left to archive the pick or right to add it to your journal, which your friends can then see.
These journals are sectioned by months, essentially grouping all of your selected photos in monthly photo dumps.
You can also continue to add friends, which is facilitated through the notifications Lapse sends whenever someone from your contact list joins the app.
