About Our App

It all began with a discussion on cultural differences between François Marquet, photographer and mountaineer, and Lorenzo Felici, international computer consultant, long-time friends and frequent travellers. During our travels, we understood the importance and richness of cultural differences, but also how far reality was from preconceived ideas... We then imagined a simple tool to help people see this reality for themselves and give them the desire to get to know foreign cultures. That's why we came up with Minutesight, a free application designed as a global community of users. We connect people anonymously and allow 1min sights around the world. Minutesight offers HD video, instant calls, operates without language barriers and is free. Why 1min? Everyone can offer 1min of their time, and it's long enough to feel the mood of a place.

HD

Minutesight is HD1280x720 to cope with the bandwidth available in most countries. If the bandwidth decreases, the resolution decreases to avoid transmission shutup.

Retina Ready

Minutesight is ready for Full HD and more when 5G will be available.

Secure

The geolocation data sent to us by your device GPS is encrypted before transmission and will remain on our servers only 24h. We cannot link these data to a user ID as no sign-in is required.

Private

Minutesight transmits peer to peer private video. The content you transmit doesn't go through our servers.

Anonymous

Minutesight users are anonymous to each other and to Minutesight. The caller doesn't know who he is calling, and the filmer doesn't know who he is filming for.

Free of Charge

Minutesight is free of charge as part of its concept. Minutesight is free and will remain so, we have designed Minutesight as a common good.
