Awesome App!

Been using CloseUp for at least 3-4 years now and have never been let down! The Dropbox integration is a great feature since I’ve switched phones a few times and never had to worry about local backups. Not necessarily a bad thing, but it would be cool to be able to have more than one set of photos. So maybe you can have yourself and then a separate one for your child or partner, or even for multiple children. Just an idea 😉

I Really Love This App

I have been using this app for more than two years now and absolutely love it! I have changed phones twice in this time and getting the photos back was the easiest thing. I have literally zero issues with this app and just want to let you know how amazing it is. I used to just take daily selfies on my phone camera but obviously never managed to make a video with them and now only use your app. Thanks.

Great app, only 1 issue.

Great app, runs great on my iPhone 6s Plus running the latest iOS. My only issue is that notifications do not work. I tried setting a reminder in the app to remind me at a certain time of the day to take a selfie, but the reminder does not pop up, nor any notification. I’ve checked my settings and everything seems OK on my end, might be a small bug with the app, but this app is great for taking selfies and seeing the change in months. Thank you for making such a great app!
