With the introduction of Android 4.0 came time-lapse video built into the stock camera app. It is super simple to use and the results are amazing. Just go to the camera app, select video, hit settings, and select your time-lapse settings. This particular video was shot on 10 second intervals over about a 30 minute period.
To take this shot I suctioned cupped my Galaxy Nexus in its car dock to my Chromebook and tilted it with a rolled up towel.
I really need a better tripod solution... hahah. Suggestions?
