Open at the Close is a joint effort of Bart, Rogier & Robert.
Feel free to send Bart an e-mail. You can meet him at Hogwarts for a pint of Butterbeer and he will tell you all about it during a friendly game of Quidditch 😉
We developed Open at the Close from the idea that you want to leave something behind for your loved ones, before it’s too late. Our belief is not to boost your own self-confidence but to truly have an unselfish app.
Guardians are the people who are close to you and who you trust with your dearest moment.
We think that when it really counts, 30 seconds will be enough time to record what you want to leave behind for your Guardians. If not, please send us a email with your proposal.
With Open at the Close we try to make you think about that one real thing you want to leave behind.
In the app, swipe left in your Guardian view on the Guardian which you like to delete and select “delete”.
Yes, on the bottom left of the recording screen you find the sharing icons, which will give you many sharing options.
Nope, you will have to chose one view position when you start recording.
The app will, by default, upload the movie automatically after you either stop recording or after your 30 seconds has expired. You can also choose to disable this feature and upload your moment manually with the button on the bottom right of the recording screen.
Absolutely, the communication between your device and our storage is encrypted. We use the largest cloud provider in the world in order to keep your moment safe.
Only your guardians can see your uploads, and only when you want them to. They are stored in your online vault, which can only be accessed with the unique key (also available to the public when approved).
For now we have restricted the upload to one video. We’re busy developing a time vault function where you can upload more videos and keep a diary.
Then others besides your Guardian can also see your moment. Maybe you have a message for the world to see, or we use you moment to inspire others
To contact you and to optimize your user experience.
No of course not!
That is something we are thinking about. Feel free to send us your suggestions!
That will definitely be a feature of the app in the future.
