These days Smartphones come with great camera features. Along with filter and other editing tools, Slow Motion and Fast Motion (Time-Lapse) features can already be found in stock camera application of iPhone 6 and later newer model. However, it doesn’t allow to make Slow Motion of Fast Motion videos from an existing video, and if you have an older model, you can’t make such videos with camera app. So we are here with some cool applications that allow users to record such videos, and they also allow to use existing videos to slow down or speed up.
Slow Motion and Fast Motion (Time-Lapse) Video Camera Applications
1. Slo Mo / Fast Motion Video Maker
This is a very simple application that doesn’t require you to be a tech person. Just download the application on your iPhone or iPad, and enjoy. To record a slow Motion Video using this application, just launch the app and choose “Record New Video” or “Choose From Library” option. Record New Video option allows to use camera to make a slow motion video, or you can tap Choose from Library if you want to slow down an existing video.
Slo Mo Video application also allows to set how slow you want the video to play (between 10% to 100%). Once you set the speed, you can check how the video is playing, and the created video can be share among friends on Social Media or you can simply save to the Photos app. The app is free to download and use. There is one more feature that require you to pay for this. The premium feature allows to change the speed of a certain part of the video. It doesn’t leave any water mark on videos.
Fast Motion : The app can also speed up the video, but you need to write a review to unlock this feature for free. The fast motion can speed up the video to either 150% or 200%.

The free version of Slow Motion Camera app comes with some limitation. The video will have water mark and you can’t add audio. Pro Version is known as Slow Motion Camera Extreme, and it costs only $2.99.
$2.99 is a limited time offer, else it usually costs $5.99
