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 2.2.2

- This version of Close-up fixes a bug where if you entered the camera then backgrounded the app and reopened it we'd sometimes show an error message and possibly freeze the app.

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

Love it

Ruth's Cardagahn

This is a great app, and I love using it. All my friends were curious about it and I always recommend it. I especially love how when taking my photo, I can actually line up my face with previous photos so I’m in the same position and the same distance away from the camera. The video is really fun to watch, and I love seeing it grow longer as I continue to use this app. Five stars :)

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?
