Close-up, a daily photo journal for your face.

Close-up reminds you to take a photo of yourself each day and lets you make time-lapse videos or GIFs. Photos can be backed up and synched using Dropbox and geotagged with Foursquare.

What's New

Version 2.1.1

- After purchasing video sharing or GIF generation the action is now immediately performed instead of having to attempt to perform the action again.
- Fixed a minor bug that could sometimes cause the loading indicator in the status bar to show for longer than expected when sync was enabled.

If you like using Close-up we'd love to hear! Please leave us a quick review on the App Store.

Very nice app


I’d like to see an effect when switching from picture to picture like it warps or it fades in the face using facial detection.
It would present the video with much more drama specially for people who don’t take daily photos like once a month

Thank you I hope i brought something good to consider

Great app!


Cool app! I’ve been using it since 2014. One question- I have upgraded my IPhone and would like to transfer my pictures to my new iPhone. I’ve synced both phones to my Dropbox, but it has not added the pictures from my older iPhone. Is there a way to do this?

Kids grow up to fast
