Issue using Lapse It Pro

I'm trying to use Lapse It Pro on a new Honor 7X by Huawei and I'm having issues with it cutting the time lapse off before it's supposed to. I've set it up three different times to capture frames for long periods and it's stopped after capturing images at about 3, 4, and 5.5 hours into filming. You can set how long the session goes from within the Lapse It app and it cuts things short every time, which makes me think it's possibly something outside the app that's causing it. Most recently I've set the 'Background Capture' option within the app to Fully enabled and this still didn't correct things. I bought this phone new to use just for this time lapse project and it isn't hooked up to my cell network. I've also tried setting the phone on airplane mode, with wi-fi off, and it still happens.

Any idea what's going on here?

For app bugs.

I'm always back to emailing or reporting it to the author.

For time lapse there are dozens of apps now. Try another.

Thanks

Appreciate the reply. I was suggested Time Lapse Pro because it handled changing lighting conditions well. I'll be filming a barn being painted from sun up to sun down and need variable exposure.

Any suggestions for an another time lapse app that will do this well?

Sorry

But I've only used a few and that was a year ago. These apps change and I can't be sure if what I used may have a bug like this one. You have to take app bugs back to the author or they won't know it needs fixing.

Why do I write this? I'm an author of a few apps too and if no one reports a bug it is unlikely I'll see it and fix it.

I will report there can be an issue if the phone isn't on the cellular network. My now old HTC One was my phone for years and I went on travel and it was out of network for about a week. A few days in the date and time defaulted to 1980 which messed up some dates on photos. Check the date and time on the phone to see if it's losing the date and time.

Thanks again

Will do...I'll connect it to the network and check date and time.
