Terrible update
by najskxn ndjejnenend on 2020/10/21 09:40
This app WAS great until the latest update. It’s awful. I’ve been tracking my sobriety and now it’s way more difficult than it needs to be.
Great App, but the UI in Version 4.0 is bad
by nsillies on 2020/10/21 00:48
I have been using this app everyday for the past 3.5 years and it has truly been one my favorite apps, producing great videos. But the 4.0 update turned what was a well-designed, seemless UI into an unnecessary series of extra steps, buttons, and screens. It’s a bit of a mess honestly, and would benefit from a return to a more simple UI.
UX update is annoying
by Mkaycole on 2020/10/20 20:40
The latest update that includes project cards makes the purpose of the app, posting 1 second everyday, into at least four interactions before you get to it. It’s very annoying and makes it harder to see my journal. Would prefer a shortcut so it automatically opens to the journal instead of having to select the journal then the day then add a clip then the clip then confirm.
Horrible
by Bates714 on 2020/10/19 21:43
I used this app for 4 years and all of a sudden I open the app and my app automatically updated. No more snippets on the daily calendar unless you want to pay $50 a year... what a disappointment.
Crashing app
by Captincookies on 2020/10/19 02:04
I’ve never had an issue with this app ever. With this newest update it crashes almost every time I try to upload a video. I can put one video up, but if I try to do another for a different day it just freezes then crashes. It’s just getting frustrating because I love this app but I’m tired of it crashing every time I try to use it.
Life changing
by kmf1201 on 2020/10/19 00:24
This app is amazing. It changes your outlook on your day-to-day life, where you’ll start seeing the value in even the most mundane parts of your day. Its the most genuine and real way to share your experiences with friends and family. Keeping up with my 1second videos every day helps me keep up with my life in real time and helps me think about what i love most about my day. The collab features are so fun, ive never been able to create genuine content of shared experiences like this with my friends before. The customer support team is excellent and the app design is beautiful and user friendly. This is an incredible company that runs its business on very admirable and progressive qualities and values. Not only is the product great, but you will be supporting a socially and technologically responsible business model that should be the standard for anyone in the business!
The best update...the best app
by Sexy pizza on 2020/10/18 18:52
I cannot believe how far this app has come! This update is incredible ! New features ...new look... Happy to give these guys my money!
Why?
by alex plosion on 2020/10/18 18:11
I get the idea behind updating and expanding the app. The main issue is the amount of clicks it takes to add one clip. When I’m adding these clips it’s meant to be super fast and in the moment. Now i have to click all these extra prompts when i first launch the app. I’m not into it at all. If you want to add all these extra features ( which i don’t personally use ) please make sure it does not distract from original purpose of the app. The graphic design of the new ui is a pleasant update. Still. Too many clicks to add a clip. Ideally I’d like the camera to launch automatically. Click record. Trim. Click save. And done.
Disappointed
by Mad Hatter Dad on 2020/10/18 17:50
Used to be a great app but the new update lost my 1 second a days for this whole year!
Great app, but not complete - recent update is bad
by Martinxzkdg on 2020/10/18 13:47
It’s a good app, I would even go as far as saying it’s a very good app, but one function is sorely, sorely, sorely missing: duplicate project. Sometimes you want to try something out, sometimes you want to make a different cut, sometimes you want to make different versions of a video. Every major video editing app has a way to duplicate a project. I think this one should have it too. Now wouldn’t that be a great premium function? . The recent update is not great – it adds some flashy graphics but creates some unnecessary steps.
Unnecessary update
by David 🍉 on 2020/10/18 02:00
It used to take like 3 taps for add a clip to my timeline, now it takes 7 taps because I have to go through 4 different screens and press confirm twice.
Music
by Fallonanewman on 2020/10/17 15:32
This app used to be the best but they’ve change the music options, The only options now are sad melancholy sounds. Such a bummer. Find a different app if you want some fun music to pair with your clips!
Less awesome
by PanzaMom on 2020/10/17 14:20
This app is still good, and I appreciate the fact that there is a free level of membership, BUT the newest update is a negative change. A basic feature that I counted on is GONE unless I pay: I only get 1 snippet a day, not 2. I often use photos, not video clips, and I counted on that second image to capture the day. And, as lots of other people have said, the app got more complicated now. Maybe the new features the upgrade adds are amazing. I don't know. I want to be able to do what I was doing already. That really worked for me - and I was recommending it to everyone. It's not that I resent paying. This kind of app costs money to run. The problem is, the upgrade is not cheap, and there's no middle level for those of us who need to limit spending. Making this change during the COVID crisis, when lots of people are struggling to pay rent and buy food? Well, that just seems ... I won't say greedy, but it's definitely less than empathetic. Overall? Still a good app. If you download now, you'll probably like it a lot, and you won't miss what you never had. But for those of us who were already here? It just got a little less shiny.
Horrible UI Update
by Cam Galla on 2020/10/17 07:12
I’ve been using 1SE pro for almost a year an a half during which they’ve made many updates. In general, I feel the updated trend in the right direction, increasing functionality of the app improving user experience. This update however is incredibly frustrating. The app now opens to a screen that shows all your projects as cards that you need to swipe through. You then need to scroll through until you click on the on the project you want every time you open the app. This makes no sense as I typically will only be working on one project at a time. Previously, switching projects was as simple of tapping ‘My Timeline’ at the top of the screen and selecting from a drop down menu. Now, from a project page, it involves clicking in the top left of the screen and then scrolling though other projects each of which take up the full screen. This must also be done every time the app is opened. The full screen cards that show your projects give no control over the images or colors you can use. I’d much rather look at a grid of my previous week’s 1 second memories than a title page with a colored banner and the thumbnail of the first second in my project. This UI update made icons to control clip settings larger which now makes it makes it necessary to scroll in order to access clip volume control. I appreciate when 1SE is quick and functional to use without excessive scrolling and clicking. This update creates unnecessary steps.
New Update Ruined the App
by sarah4162783 on 2020/10/16 17:37
This used to be one of my favorite apps until the new update. I have taken a one second video everyday since January 1st. This may all go to waste now because it will not let me play the whole video together. Not to meantion, the feature where you can select what second of a video you want does not work either. Unless they change it back to the old format, I would not download this app.
Developer is shifting priorities, app getting convoluted
by atmosferick on 2020/10/16 13:49
Before, if you wanted to add 1 second everyday to this app it was pretty easy and quick. Now its an annoying process. I get trying to expand your app to justify the subscription model. But forgetting that the main function, the thing that the app is literally named for, is taking a back seat now is dumb. Figure out a way to fix your UI. Maybe give the option of having the 1SE part of your app being front and center? The new features seem cool. But if they’re interfering with the main feature, what’s the point? Been recording since 2017. And this is the only bad update I’ve seen so far.
Really bummed
by Kitscaboodle on 2020/10/16 06:55
This use to be my favorite app until the update and now adding a second clip a day costs. $6.00 a month. Why make this a cost when it had been free before? The app does so very little, it’s very simplistic - this fee is outlandish. A dollar maybe? $10 one time charge? Sure. But $6.00 a month for adding one second a day to your video? Ugh.
Long time fan, but not great update.
by KDaddy2000 on 2020/10/15 22:11
I’m closing in on recording 4 years of one second every day. Major app update (10/2020) isn’t improving the experience. Prior, this was 5 stars all the way.
Terrible Update
by mba217 on 2020/10/15 17:45
Loved the app for a year and a half, but the recent update is terrible! I have to go through 3 or 4 screens upload my 1 clip for the day, when it used to be streamlined on one main screen. Update has a terrible user experience!!
Great until new update!
by k_rosepie on 2020/10/14 16:14
I’ve been using this app for two whole years and I’ve loved every second! I have an incredible amount of memories saved into this, but this new update is just horrid. The simple task of adding a daily clip is now this extra long and confusing process. I shouldn’t have to click through 3-4 different prompts just to add one clip.
So disappointed!!
by Jhsdgh on 2020/10/14 03:41
I’ve made a monthly video on this app since 2016. Since the new update it’s no longer allowing me to make a new video for October. One snippet a day??!! Such a bummer!!!
Hate the update
by xJxVx on 2020/10/13 23:46
The latest update makes me tap so many times just to do basic things. I liked when filming my 1 second took a couple seconds. Now I have to tap tap tap on so many things to do the basic function of the app. I paid for this app, so I hope you’ll streamline it again.
Not a fan of the new update
by d9474728 on 2020/10/13 16:39
I don’t like how long it takes for my snippet to be saved. Why am I going through three different screens for a one second snippet to be saved to (1/2) of my day snippets? Seems like bad UX. love this app otherwise really good it near and dear to my heart and has been a great way to document 2020 for me.
Hate the redesign
by Frustrated multitasker on 2020/10/13 10:31
I love this app. I have been using it since January 2018 and it means so much to me. But I just wanted to say that I hate the recent redesign. Granted, I just started using it literally today so it might get better but I just tried to add one video to my timeline and it was such a long and confusing process! It used to be so easy! I’m good at technology but I hate change and I hate when interfaces become harder/less intuitive.
Great app until this terrible update.
by Jaybot- on 2020/10/13 08:10
So a few things... The app now has way too many prompts now just to add a clip to your day. What used to be only a few taps, now has several more. Talk about a step backwards for the user experience! Also, why is the ugly font still there for location titles? At least give us the option to revert back to the original font instead of this ugly font! Did the subscription price increase too?
Love this
by Tom Hyatt on 2020/10/13 03:52
I got sober February 26th 2020. I have documented one second of every day Since And when I watch it, I revel in all the life I am able to live. Sober. Safe. Alive. I see my kids playing. The sun rising. The laughter and connection and beauty and simplicity. Thank you for this gift of remembering
Why the change???
by n shif on 2020/10/12 20:20
I started using the app at the beginning of October and loved it! There was an update to the app. And now today is the first day this month that it is only letting me add ONE snippet. What is up with that nonsense?!?! I don’t mind paying for more, if I end up really enjoying this app. But to change the game in the middle and give less seems like really bad business. Why should I even consider paying for what I was getting for free YESTERDAY?? Really why should I consider using your app anymore?
Not working after update
by Momomo122811 on 2020/10/12 12:25
I have used this app every single day since my son was born. I have a paid subscription. I just got the most recent update and it no longer works. The error message says “The operation could not be completed” when trying to trim/add a clip just as I always have. I am so sad that I can’t continue this project of documenting his first year.
Crashing / Freezing
by Ikar3n on 2020/10/12 01:49
I’m not sure if it’s because of the new IOS, but I can’t seem to upload a video without the app freezing & then crashing shortly afterwards. Can someone relate?
The app is great...
by J_Magnolias on 2020/10/11 18:11
...but why isn’t collaboration available for EXISTING projects? Please make this available! I need to be able to collab on a DAY TO DAY project... not a video freestyle type. Please. Please. Please.
Best money I’ve ever spent!
by kaylee92 on 2020/10/09 04:20
I mean this sincerely. I started 1SE in January 2020, and having this app that forces me to find one thing that brings me happiness or that I want to remember of every day has been so life giving. As a person prone to anxiety and depression, I feel like it’s helping retrain my brain to find the joy and goodness of each day. I love this app. It’s changed my life.
What happened?!
by Xtina´s-lover on 2020/10/08 03:01
With the newest update, what’s up? Why is my 2019 and 2020 all together in one project?!
my life is like a movie
by Ben🍩 on 2020/10/06 17:18
i have an amazing life. probably the best ever. i knew that ever since a very young age my life is like a movie. this app helps me capture it
I love it but...
by Princess.sassy. on 2020/10/05 16:47
I love the app and everything it’s worth the price but I just wish they were able to like hook it up with your snapchat where you can easily choice videos from it to add in instead of just your camera roll
Needs to be fixed
by Abbsjewell on 2020/10/05 15:50
I logged into my account on my new phone and all of my memories were gone. I had to go back in and manually re-enter every clip and picture from years ago until now. What is the point of having an account if it doesn’t save your timelines?? Also, it is no longer giving me the option to choose what dates I want in the video. What happened??
A lot of bugs
by Bob56779974334 on 2020/10/04 22:14
Have used this app since 2018 but now I’m having so many issues with the new update. It won’t let me crop videos like I want, buttons seem to be missing, and the app freezes and crashes on me every time I try putting a new clip. I used to love this app so much but now I’m really disappointed. Hopefully bugs will be fixed in the future
Please bring back the old music!!
by rhyehutch on 2020/09/30 09:22
This review is solely for the most recent update because I love this app, but PLEASE, please bring back the old music! I’m so bummed the music choices changed and the old songs aren’t available anymore. The new song choices are so bad. I can’t find one that works and flows well with my timeline. They’re all so choppy and not exciting or moving. I‘ve been adding to my timeline everyday since April and had it set to Aqua. Having the music makes such a difference! I recently downloaded Pro solely for the music but I’ll be ending that membership now. So disappointed!
Can’t play entire timeline.
by jewelmaysabordo on 2020/09/28 16:15
Decided to start using this app again and wanted to watch what I had so far but the app won’t play the entire timeline. Even when I select to add videos to the mashup, no videos get added. It just plays a 2 second video of the logo. Please fix this.
Bug?
by 😜🤩😍😘✌🏻 on 2020/09/24 22:19
I just got 1 second everyday, and as soon as I opened the app it had this screen offering me either premium monthly or annually, but there was no option to use the free version. My mom has this app and hers didn’t do that, so I’m guessing it’s a bug. My iPod touch is also getting outdated, iOS 14 is out and my iPod runs iOS 12. I thought that could be it too. Or maybe there’s a way around it. Either way, it’s frustrating.
Bring the Old Music back
by LilMommyBug on 2020/09/24 04:03
Why did you guys get rid of the old music??? I was about to subscribe so I could make my year video with a song & now it’s gone?!
Bring back the old music!
by sprinklescat12 on 2020/09/23 23:48
Bring back the old music! I’ve been working on a project since January and now have to change the music. Very disappointing. I believe the music was called “wonder.”
Will make you grateful and bring you so much joy!
by Knovio - so easy to use! on 2020/09/23 01:05
Even though my friends were really tired by the end of the year of hearing me say, “alright, time for my one second a day!”, this app created what is actually one of the most cherished pieces of media on my phone. It’s amazing to look back at your year and actually remember details, and it’s even more amazing to remember the little moments that you forget when you’re just looking at landmark accomplishments or vacations in a scrapbook or your social media feed. It reminds you that life is in the little moments day to day.
Crashing
by taydub13 on 2020/09/22 07:22
I’ve had this app for years now and made loads of fun videos. But now, I can barely look at my snippet to clip it before it crashes. After this last update, it will crash my entire phone and I have to keep restarting my phone. I really want this fixed before I loose a year’s worth of videos :(
Only app I use consistently!
by Student4222767 on 2020/09/21 16:10
I love this app, and am so happy they’ve even upgraded all users to use 1.5 second videos. It’s helped me find snippets of joy in every day, even with stay at home orders.. All my friends are surprised I’ve kept up with it for almost two years now, but I love watching the monthly mash-ups and my years in review. It’s the perfect alternative from getting sucked into posting IG stories/highlights and spending a lot of time and energy making my own video compilations.
Update took any good music
by _tdru0401 on 2020/09/18 05:16
The music aspect of this app is beyond frustrating. The recent update got rid of any piano/calm kind of music and left it with only upbeat and obnoxious songs. I’ve been making a video for my daughter for the last year and had planned on using the lullaby song that’s gone now. I subscribed to Apple Music so I could pick my own and I’ve yet to find a single song that isn’t “protected” (yes I tried royalty free music).
Amazing
by L.o.v.e. This APP on 2020/09/16 02:54
I have been using this app for almost 2 years. Honestly I havent found another of the sort that even compares. Beautifully simple design. I love that you can import pictures from the camera roll and journal about it. I love that you can save a movie clip for any amount of time. Wonderfully designed app.
I LOVE this app!
by hdbcuehxia on 2020/09/14 13:10
This app is amazing! I love to be able to go through and see things that happened to me and what I wrote that day! I highly suggest!
Love this app, but it crashes all the time.
by yung_shire on 2020/09/13 00:10
I downloaded this app about two years ago when I was staying in Europe for 6 months and i found it was a wonderful way to document my daily life. I wish, more than, anything, that I could document the last two years every day on this app to make a beautiful, memorable montage. But it honestly crashes every time I try to trim a video. I can’t put more than a couple days in without it crashing. Would be one of my favorite apps if it wasn’t so prone to crash.
Limited music choices
by CCC 73 on 2020/09/08 12:57
I bought this app to document my baby’s first month. I upgraded to the pro version because I wanted to include music. Initially I was super pleased because the app included a song that was perfect for my video! Low and behold, two days later they removed the that song and replaced all of their music with new music that I don’t like at all. Why not just keep the old songs AND the new songs?? Incredibly frustrating, especially considering song choice is limited due to copyrights. I like the app, but I’m disappointed that the team decides to reinvent the wheel and effectively ruin the vibe of the project I was working on by removing the song choice.
Extra Mile
by Rahbuhbuh on 2020/09/08 03:24
I have to say that after some initial problems, I’m really impressed with the company going the extra mile.
New update giving error with Live Photo
by btru... on 2020/09/07 15:23
The new update now is giving me an error every time i try to upload a Live Photo. Please fix this as I loved the app before this happened.
Pretty cool app, wish it was with Snap
by elle_selenka on 2020/09/06 01:50
I absolutely love this app and being able to record my life one second a day It would be SUPER cool if it could connect to Snapchat, so you can take pictures from there straight to this app I know I personally and lots of others take most pictures on Snapchat, as to save space on my phone’s memory, but it kind of defeats the point when you have to save it from snap to my phone and then to this, along with just being a hassle If there was a setting to connect the two, that would be awesome Otherwise this app is great, definitely worth getting (:
🚨🚨🚨🚨
by Greg.ni on 2020/09/02 18:17
You’re adding all these features but it’s still not optimized for iPad that’s crazy 👎🏼👎🏼

Such potential
by BeeNavarro on 2020/08/30 18:47
I’d love to give 5 stars. Great concept. However I’m consistently freezing when I pic certain pictures and have to close out or move past that date and come back to it. And the photo quality doesn’t show as well as it does on my phone.
Issues with uploads
by 36433 on 2020/08/26 04:22
I will say that I want this app to work. However, I have had to close the app and reopen because it freezes almost every couple of uploads. It’s very frustrating to work with. Nice concept though
sad
by I <3 pocket pup 90 on 2020/08/24 21:57
i’ve used this app for a year and had to move to a new phone and had my email hacked, i contacted customer support and was left on seen so now i can’t see the last year i had saved :/
My life
by bispete on 2020/08/21 03:58
I love having a journal with all these pictures. Still learning and hope to get better at this.
Why should I have to upgrade to pro?
by LaurenPitera on 2020/08/19 23:10
I was really excited about this app after having our first kid- being able to have a spot where I could look at all the videos and pictures we had taken. I used it for a few weeks, was charged the $30. As soon as I was charged I go on to use the app and none of the features are available unless I “upgrade to pro version”? Seriously. I thought it was even outrageous to pay $30 for the whole year. Now I can’t even use the app without upgrading. If I could rate this zero stars I would.
New Membership
by L.Ellie.A on 2020/08/19 11:08
I have been using this app for a few months, and have so enjoyed the features. It has been really fun for my family - as we have had to quarantine separately - to see each other’s days. I am disappointed that overnight, 90% of the app’s functionality has transitioned to require a “Pro” membership which is $5 a month or $60 a year, on top of the initial purchase. You can no longer edit volume, brightness, or add a second snippet. I certainly believe that app makers should be rewarded for their innovation - and this is a really cool product. I think my main gripe is that this is a membership (not a one-time purchase) and there’s no tangible added value... It’s the same features I have been using since the beginning of 2020.
No notice of update that cost money
by 🤷🏻‍♀️Anon on 2020/08/18 10:05
I’m General I love the app HOWEVER I absolutely hate that it went from free with many features to suddenly a minimum of $4.99 a month (or more) for the features… Some of us like me who live in poverty and are trying to remember the good days counted on the app!

by TO25809 on 2020/08/18 09:56
I’ve been making yearly 1SE for going on 3 years, and it’s such a fun way to reflect back. Easy to use! I started a new one for my daughter since her first day- it’s fun to watch her grow. Love this app!!
This app is awesome!! But there’s a problem with the mashing
by Adeline O. on 2020/08/17 04:44
It never used to happen before but I just recently updated the app and for some reason when I try to view the mash of my videos for the year, it’ll only show me 20 seconds. I’m sure it’s just a bug, but otherwise, I love this app! I love being able to try to capture my days in one second and reflecting on all of the chaotic times I’ve had with my friends which is especially great now because covid and what not. It’s a fun and interesting way to spice up journaling!
Amazing
by tdbower on 2020/08/17 00:35

best way to keep memories!
by emscindy on 2020/08/13 08:00
been using this since my baby was born and that’s going to be a year next month!! it’s so sweet to go back and see how much he changes everyday and watch him grow up in video! i’m so happy I found this awesome app!
Best App!
by Jess.T.22 on 2020/08/12 23:50
I&#39;ve been using this app for 3 years and just love it! It is so easy to use and helps me remember all the big and small things that happen day to day! I think everyone should use it!!
Best Way To Get In Your Feels
by A$#L£E on 2020/08/12 11:06
We started this app this year with our son and it’s been the coolest way to watch him grow in just one second every day. They recently fixed the issue with the sound being delayed in the videos so I couldn’t be more happy!
kinda upset :/
by tehe, i love tiktok on 2020/08/11 10:10
i really like this app, it’s super fun. like ever since 2020 started, i’ve been adding little snippets of videos from everyday, so far it’s january - august, once it starts getting to april, the wording gets a little off and it’s like the voice is behind (it just starts getting laggy) which is super annoying because i enjoy watching how much i’ve grown over the year, and how i was doing, what i was doing, what i was saying, but when it lags and i can’t understand, it’s annoying. please please fix this ❤️❤️❤️
Sound and video delay glitch
by j1524 on 2020/08/11 03:03
App used to be great for keeping track of our baby’s growth, but in the latest update if you make a timeline video of more than just a few weeks at a time, the sound slowly outpaces the video until it is completely out of sync. It makes the last few videos of the month seem pointless because the sound is so way off. Please fix this. I can’t use the app like it is intended.
DELETES AFTER YOU REDOWNLOAD
by Champagnelver on 2020/08/05 03:02
When I download this app in a different phone, the videos are gone!i wish it would just come back! Now I’m crying bc if this stupid app not saving it!
Has improved my life
by Bridgebeudywvxjufve on 2020/08/04 15:48
When people ask me about 1SE I tell them it’s one thing on my phone that has truly made my life better. I don’t spend too much time trying to capture moments in my life now, just a favorite second in my day to remember. I don’t think about what I’m going to post on social media because I just post my video at the end of each month. I’ve been doing this pretty consistently for a couple years and I’ll cherish the videos for my entire life.
Audio issue
by Wcllns on 2020/07/31 12:47
The app is great but I’ve been waiting like a month or more for them to fix the issue of the audio being out of sync. Not even enjoying using the app because I can’t watch anything back properly. I did email them about the issue and they told me they would let me know when it was fixed....still waiting, and judging by the reviews, it looks like we are ALL still waiting
Great app, audio problem
by minionetta on 2020/07/28 05:16
I really like this app and it helps me see the joy in every day. The one thing that kept me from giving it 5 stars is the audio delay. When I watch my montage of all my clips so far the audio is slower than the visuals and by the end it is a clip behind. Idk if others are having this problem but it would be great if the audio and visuals lined up. Otherwise it&#39;s a great app!!
Except one thing
by Mskelly564 on 2020/07/21 08:25
The volume of tone that plays after you’ve logged your 1 second is ASTRONOMICAL
I’ve used this app everyday for almost 3 years and don’t plan on stopping
by Chiq711 on 2020/07/21 02:57
I heard about 1SE on a podcast in 2017 and was intrigued - I’ve always wanted to keep a journal but never had the stamina and would burn out quickly. 1SE makes a version this journaling of this possible! I also use the “freestyle” mode to document concerts, vacations, and other unique experiences. My family loves getting those video “mashes”, because they say so much more than photos of the same events would. Watching my videos reminds me of the small, everyday details too that are just as special in their own way. I got the pro subscription just recently, not necessarily because any of the additional features jumped at me, but because this product has been consistently useful, reliable, entertaining, and otherwise part of my life for a relatively long time - I’m quite proud to support this app and show it off as often as I can! That being said, my other main draw to the pro was to have unlimited backup of all my snippets - I’ve been going at this for a long enough time that I would be very sad to lose everything. My one critique is that sometimes when the app mashes long videos, on the order of the last year of snippets or so, the audio will sometimes get out of sync with the video. This is a small bug that I’m sure can be or already has been addressed (just updated my app yesterday). Keep up the good work, y’all!
Great app. Needs some adjustments and iPad functionality
by rivertaylor on 2020/07/19 22:10
I love 1 second everyday, and I’ve been using it for the past few years. However, I don’t love the verticality of the newer UI, and I’ve noticed the text is far too big in the videos now. It used to auto-adjust to fit the length of the caption (i like to add locations of where I’m at, along with movie titles and/or episode titles if it’s a clip from a show) and now it just cuts the text off past a certain point. Mostly just a few gripes of what is otherwise a great app but if the text size was fixed it would greatly improve the user experience for me. Also, would very much appreciate the addition of an iPad compatible app. I can use the mobile version which is fine, but I would like to be able to use the app on my iPad, which is my daily driver device.
question
by justanuddergirl on 2020/07/19 16:38
is anyone else having the problem where the sound isn’t properly synced to the video or do I just have auditory processing issues
I use this app everyday!
by lksinn on 2020/07/16 17:18
I have been using this app everyday for nearly three years and couldn’t be happier with it! I have made videos capturing my oldest child’s 1st, 2nd, and now 3rd year. Now I’m working on capturing and saving my second child’s 2nd year (just finished up her 1st year video mash). I cannot think of a better way to save so many beautiful first memories. I have watched these short family movies over and over again and know that I will be singing the praises of this app for years to come. Downloading this 1SE is a no-brainer!
Beautiful App!
by Brookeeeeerrrrr on 2020/07/16 07:08
I got this back in December when I got my new phone for Christmas and I am in love with the idea. I really appreciate the effort the developers make to make it more accessible and everything! I’m just really excited to see the finale of the year all with 1 second from every day ;)
Love this app!
by Its_Aubvious on 2020/07/14 07:01
I’ve been using this for almost two years and it’s the perfect way to look back at your memories every month and year. And so easy to use!
Audio issues
by Samsam333 on 2020/07/12 20:56
The app works fine but there is an issue where, when I am compiling the snippets into a video, the audio from one clip sort of echoes into the next. It’s hard to describe it exactly, but I am happy to share an example with the developers if you’d like. It seems this issue is sporadic and inconsistent but it is a major concern nonetheless and I’d really like to see it fixed.
Amazing!!!
by disapoonted af on 2020/07/12 13:50
I found out about this through social media and it has changed my life forever. I highly recommend this for anyone if any age to document there life and really see the small happy moments!!!!
Terrible audio quality.
by AirPowerST on 2020/07/08 02:46
So I love the concept behind this, but the execution provided by 1SE has been questionable. I’ve used the app for quite some time — before we had to subscribe to get full features, which is an absolute bummer and, in my opinion, a bad ploy to get us to pay more for something we’ve ALREADY paid for. Subscription rant over, when I merge snippets, the audio is terrible. No, it’s not an issue with my snippets. It almost sounds like a “bump” in the audio between snippets that wasn’t there until one of the latest updates. This makes my Timeline disappointing. Please, do better.
Awesome but one flaw
by Rayadm on 2020/07/02 05:55
This app is such a great idea and it’s really inspired me to journal more, my only issue is that when I write a journal entry, sometimes I come back later and part of it has been deleted. Other than that, I’m loving it!
I like it but it has a problem
by wolfsters64 on 2020/06/23 17:54
I really like this app and I’ve used it a lot but it recently asked me to allow it access to my photo library which I would gladly give but when it brings me to the settings to do so there’s no option to allow it access and now it won’t let me use the app rendering it useless
Great, except...
by elise7825 on 2020/06/19 03:10
It’s great! Easy to use and all, except for the fact that past a certain point the sound doesn’t match up with my clips and I have no idea how to fix it
Used to be a great app
by zeus423 on 2020/06/18 00:11
I guess 1SE doesn’t care that most users HATE the vertical format of the app. Look at the recent revising the app changed about a year ago. When this was a horizontal format app, it was close to perfection. Now there is so much wasted space with a tiny preview of your video. Sad to see the ruination of a once great app.
Love love love it
by Beth of coral on 2020/06/16 17:42
I don’t ever write reviews, but this app has done so much for me. I’ve been using it for almost 2 years, and each time I watch my final product I smile to myself. It sounds so corny but it really puts life and time into perspective.
Great to look back on
by RavenclawEagle on 2020/06/16 14:58
I’ve been loving using this app. It makes it super easy to choose what video you want to use and to pick 1 second out of that video. The concept is great too, and I love watching my video to look back on moments from the year. My only issue is that a few updates ago, my longer locations/captions started to no longer appear in the video completely. They’ll be partially there, then end with “...”. Aside from that, though, I highly recommend this app!
Good app, but cheese balls are better
by Starlord!!! on 2020/06/14 05:43
I’ve been using this app for over 2 years and I have been recording all my cheeseball videos on this app. It’s a really good way to help me appreciate my cheese balls Thank you for changing my life Subscribe to pewdiepie And wear your seatbelt.
Love recording my seconds!
by the girl w/ the hair on 2020/06/09 23:19
I love this app and have been doing this for like 2 years. I really like the feature that lets you include two snippets for a day, but for the last while pretty much every time I try to save my second snippet the app crashes. Please fix 😭
Best app I’ve ever purchased
by username917372781 on 2020/06/07 05:04
I purchased 1SE to capture my senior year in high school in 2016 so I’ve been using it for about 4 years now. You don’t need this app to make a one second everyday video but it sure does help you stay committed. I compile the videos once in a while and it makes me value and appreciate little things in life. Best lifelong project!
Love!
by Candacehill on 2020/06/03 12:19
I absolutely love this app!! I used it wayyy back then but could never really commit to doing it so last year I FINALLY said I’ll do it and it was the greatest thing ever! I remembered everyday as I watched the video at the end of the year. So sweet!! I decided to do it again this year and everything is going really good, there is just a small problem with the sound and the video matching up... I’m not sure why it’s not lining up because I always did before. Is there a way I can fix it? I have the latest version already
Bestest selfie app ever
by TRAVIK666 on 2020/05/31 02:39
As somebody Who loves to selfie themselves when im alone naked and bored,,, (wink wink) ;) This app is THE BESTEST selfie/journal app Ever made
Love it!
by kalea78 on 2020/05/28 01:23
I’m usually not much on writing reviews but I feel that this app warrants a review! Yes, some days I’m scrambling to try to think of something to video for my 1 second of the day but it sure is worth it! I know exactly when important events happened because of this app! The only complaint that I have is that the sound lags behind and doesn’t match the pictures. Other than that it provides a fun way to look back at your year in just a few minutes! Love it!
Love this app
by mmorgan1181 on 2020/05/27 19:42
Great app have used it for Almost 5years love how they keep improving things all the time!
the app broken or something
by Onedirectioner111 on 2020/05/27 17:34
I used to use this all the time. I have vids from jan 1 and i went to go add some more but now it’s staying i have no video in progress and it keeps sending me to my settings to allow it to use my camera roll and it doesn’t work. like it’s glitching and won’t let me use the app or see my video. i lost everything.
crash now fixed
by elizabet anne on 2020/05/25 00:51
the app was great until i tried to open it today and it is telling me it is no longer shared with me i am not sure what to do with out loosing what i have i put so much time and effort into this and i don’t want to loose it
This app helps me see the joy in everyday life!
by Ellison K on 2020/03/05 07:54
It sounds like hyperbole, but this app literally changed my life. I had postpartum depression with my first baby, and every night I cried myself to sleep because of how hard it all was (he was terribly colicky and I felt like he just cried ALL DAY LONG). A friend told me about this app, and I started piecing together positive snippets from each day. When I’d watch the mashed video of multiple months, it helped me start seeing how much happiness my son was bringing to me and how the little things add up. I’ve been using the app for 3 years now, and I LIVE the updates. I was so worried because I had to switch to a new phone, and the backup and redone load process worked flawlessly. The only thing I’d love to see added is the ability to move snippets around. For example, sometimes I’ve already cut a snippet just right, but then later I want to move it to a different date to make room for a different moment in that spot. I’ve hoped to see a “drag and slide over” option to move a snippet from one day to another. Is that possible to add to the next update? Thank you so much for creating this app!
Horrible UI Update
by Cam Galla on 2020/10/17 07:12
I’ve been using 1SE pro for almost a year an a half during which they’ve made many updates. In general, I feel the updated trend in the right direction, increasing functionality of the app improving user experience. This update however is incredibly frustrating. The app now opens to a screen that shows all your projects as cards that you need to swipe through. You then need to scroll through until you click on the on the project you want every time you open the app. This makes no sense as I typically will only be working on one project at a time. Previously, switching projects was as simple of tapping ‘My Timeline’ at the top of the screen and selecting from a drop down menu. Now, from a project page, it involves clicking in the top left of the screen and then scrolling though other projects each of which take up the full screen. This must also be done every time the app is opened. The full screen cards that show your projects give no control over the images or colors you can use. I’d much rather look at a grid of my previous week’s 1 second memories than a title page with a colored banner and the thumbnail of the first second in my project. This UI update made icons to control clip settings larger which now makes it makes it necessary to scroll in order to access clip volume control. I appreciate when 1SE is quick and functional to use without excessive scrolling and clicking. This update creates unnecessary steps.
The new update is horrible
by Kapteva on 2019/03/07 12:54
I used to love this app, I used it all the time and I was telling about it absolutely everyone. With the new update I actually don’t want to use it anymore. I paid for the app $6 a coupe of years ago so I wasn’t using the free version. The change from horizontal (landscape) orientation to vertical (portrait) made it worse. It is difficult to see the snippets they are crammed. The editing portion of the screen changed - the ribbon where I pick the 1 sec sequences is not detailed and I can’t see or hear how the 1 second snippet will sound/look like. When I pick something, try to play it, it replays the whole video, not that part I chose. The ribbon is not intuitive to navigate (as it used to be) and it is hard to pick the snippets. I can’t pick custom dates to mash videos. It forces me to pick current year, everything. I used to show this app to everyone, I would pick a few custom dates and show them how it works and how great it is. I also can’t replay snippets from prior years (i didn’t save them). With this update actually I don’t enjoy it and I am going to look for a different app with a similar functionality. There is a very aggressive push to the subscription service, but I already paid for the app and actually all the best features were taken away. Find a different app. It has such a great reviews becuse of the older version, but since March 2019 it is crap.
Here one day, gone the next
by Tilly838 on 2019/03/03 03:56
I had posted this a while back “I absolutely Love this app. I’ve been using the free one for a year now and have been taking videos every day. However, it seems that a lot of the features of the free app are being taken away. We no longer can do 1.5 seconds for a clip and we can now only have one video where as before we could have two for each day. I understand that the free app will need to have limitations compared to the pro, however it seems like pretty soon there’s not going to be anything left on the free app. And the jump to pro is quite big in regards to cost. I’m really bummed that the app has changed so much in literally two days as I had access to all these features Thursday.” Soon after this changes were made to the app and these features we accessible again without the pro and just he initial payment app. However, my phone just updated to the most recent iOS and with it, those few features went away, again I can only have one clip a day, no 1.5 second clips, and now I can’t even create multiple montages. Again, I understand that the free app will need to have limitations compared to the pro, however i’m really bummed that they brought these features back and then removed them again as well as a few more.
Unaffected by what others are complaining about
by kt800200 on 2019/08/20 10:39
One of the coolest things about this app they don’t advertise is that the “Live Photo” capability of the iPhone finally comes in handy for something. Every one of those is about a second, so any photo you already have in your phone can become part of a video. It’s cool to see your day-to-day photos turned into live footage, I guess. Many of these reviews complain about a march update that took away features, which confuses me because I didn’t even notice and I’ve been a near-daily user since January. I broke my phone in April and was so bummed to lose the seconds I’d taken since then that I recently upgraded to monthly pro. If people are mad they get only one snippet a day, they can always spend the dollar a week it would cost to get more snippets or even use the freestyle capability. I do dislike the orientation of video since I rarely shoot horizontally but other than that, I enjoy this app completely and it’s one of the few I will pay for.
Great idea, horrible UX
by Note_Luver on 2019/07/18 04:28
K.I.S.S. much? Listen, i have worked in software research and development for over 20 years in. every position from architect to engineer to product manager etc. so this is not a case of me being “non-technical“. However as much as I want to like this application I just cannot understand the workflow it makes zero sense to me I’m simply wanting to record 1+ seconds of video per day and have them mashed together so that I could then replay as hoc. I “think“ this application allows that however I’ve yet to be able to understand how to achieve this. Assuming that is the intent of this application here’s a hint bring in a UX expert and create a next GEN version of this before someone (ahem) beat you to the punch. Seriously I can’t tell which is up and which is down in this app. I *tnink* I’ve recorded some clips during my trial but who knows. Unfortunately I think this application simply out fight itself and was focused on too many bells and whistle‘s and not actual workflow. To that end I seriously doubt I will be continuing my subscription but instead will simply mimic the idea and easily create my own application which will achieve what I am wanting once again to save a small clip each day and have them smashed together so that I could play back whenever I want.
Vertical version/latest update
by Loooooses on 2019/03/04 19:33
I was really pleased with this app and its functionality, and then they had to go and “update” it. In the new version, there’s no longer an option to use the app in landscape (horizontal) mode. They went too far “fixing” the problem, that iOS users couldn’t rotate to vertical. Now it’s even crappier because you have to press about twice as many icons just to view clips and/or take them horizontally. The smart thing to do would’ve been to keep the simpler icons and just add the ability to rotate IF WANTED, not force everything to be one way or the other. It should be as easy as tapping one icon to open up the camera for recording; now users have to go through an entire process and figure out where everything is just to add snippets on the spot. It also doesn’t need the added social media component. People use this app to record seconds, and nothing else. They don’t want ads, or other people’s content, or anything else invading. The entire point of the app is to collect snippets and put them together, and share them on another platform if desired. I’ll likely stop using it if something doesn’t change.
New Update - I want to delete the app.
by i want the old version! on 2019/03/09 15:57
I used to be in love with 1SE. An amazing way to see your life one second a day! It had an amazing layout, very easy and dynamic to work with.. Unfortunately, I can’t say that anymore with the new update. The new update went vertical, which I really don’t enjoy. At all. It seems as if they are trying to cram everything into one little screen, when before everything had an amazing layout. I really don’t think I will ever get used to this new layout. One more thing, perhaps the most annoying thing, the DIFFICULTY and TIME needed to take to record a snippet of your day. Before the new update, there was a red recording button you could press right when you opened the app. Now, with the new update, it takes MUCH longer to record a snippet for that day.. What if you want to capture a moment that is only there for a second, but can’t because it takes 30 seconds to solely get to the camera??? I’m sorry, but they need to go back to the old version. The app is also glitchy. I paid $6 for the app a couple of years ago, and now I feel as if I’m getting the free version, let alone there is now a “pro” version you can pay monthly/yearly for. I’m going to be honest, I don’t enjoy using 1SE anymore. Frankly, not sure if I even will.

Update 3.0 wasn’t necessarily
by Modge Podge on 2019/03/23 16:15
I’ve been using this app for about a year now &amp; have really loved it, but I am really disappointed with update 3.0. The vertical screen was unnecessary, and actually makes it much more difficult to edit videos. I appreciate the push for greater integration of the journal feature (and it’s really cool that it exists), but it feels like you’re kind of shoving down our throats. I started off using leap second which I found to have a better interface &amp; allowed me to add as many videos as I wanted per day (and they could be much longer than a second), but their app had a bug where my timeline was deleted more than once so I switched to 1SE. 1SE has been much more reliable, and I have never had a problem with it, but honestly I am strongly considering switching back after the update and push for subscription services that should really honestly have come with my $6 purchase of the app to begin with. The month by month format leap second offers is really nice &amp; much more intuitive and easy than the side bar month scroll on 1SE, although really genuinely what you had before was much better than what you have now.
Great concept, disappointing evolution
by CGraves89 on 2018/12/31 22:09
My sister-in-law purchased this app when it was $5 on our Apple family-share plan, and we have been using it to compile compilations, montages, or whatever 1SE has been branding their videos/slideshows as. We’ve made multiple projects featuring each of our kids, different events, etc. However, now with the most recent update and the rollout of “Pro Membership” these features that we originally paid for now are being held hostage behind their $4/month or $30/year premium membership fees. I can understand their fiscal need to offer membership usages, but revoking pre-existing features from customers who have already paid is an abhorrent practice and I will no longer be recommending this app to friends. I’m still giving the app 3-stars because it’s good at what it does and I enjoyed it before they took away the features we paid for, but they have turned their back on their original paying customers. They should have created some kind of “grandfathered-in” program rather than revoking access. Now I’ll be searching for another similar app service.
I love it, but....
by its_unlikely_i__know.u on 2019/01/23 01:22
Don’t get me wrong, I love this app. I love the concept of having one clip from each day to look back on at the end of the year, and this app makes that very easy. You can simply record a clip in the app or insert your own clip and trim it. It allows for journaling and captions which is also great. The thing that bothers me about this app is that is it is a very simple concept, and when I got it it was $5.00, which seems a little much for such a thing. I got over it because it was worth the memories and the easy navigation. But now, after I have had the app for over a year, they are pushing for a Pro plan, where you have to pay more money? It threatens that you will lose all of your video clips and they won’t be backed up, and tries to push the upgrade to the Pro plan too often. It’s $30 to use basic features users of the app have been asking for for years now. It seems outrageous that they want that much so you can add music to your clips or make them longer. If I had know about this, I would’ve thought twice about getting the app.
Ceasar’s Email
by maggie castle rock on 2020/02/26 16:45
Caesar, your email inspired me this morning and I’m taking a minute to tell you how special this app truly is. I’ve used the app since my son was 3; He is now almost 11 and I have managed to do a video from every birthday to his next. He literally wakes up on his birthday, every year, and says mom have you finished my 1 second video? I compile the entire year for him and he loves it. Everyone loves it, it’s a family tradition and I am so grateful for the intuitive updates you’ve made each and every year. This is the kind of time capsule my son will have his entire life (well at least till he goes to college lol). I go back and watch his 3rd year of life video or his 5th year of life video all the time. Thank you for creating a tool that is literally part of the fabric of my family and will last a lifetime. If my computer dies and I loose everything, my yearly 1 second videos will live on forever. Much love and admiration from Castle Rock, Colorado.
Love!

I never leave reviews but I have to for this app. It takes all of my video clips out of my phone and into something I actually want to watch. I’m kicking myself for having downloaded it years ago when my son was born and not keeping up with it. However, it’s VERY easy to go back. The paid version is completely worth it and I have used it month by month this year (2020, it’s May) and have even started to go back and fill in some videos from previous years. I LOVE it. I love documenting my kids and this app is everything I could want. I love the different projects feature and have one for each family member along with my continuous snippets for my timeline. I do wish I could access it on my computer, but since all my videos are on my phone anyways I really don’t mind that as much. I really love it though. I watch my little videos way more than I should probably admit. But that’s how much I love it.
MY Favorite App Of All Time, hands down
by ccbugsy on 2020/02/26 17:21
As a super busy mom, teacher and person who tries to live each day to the fullest, it is often so hard to not feel that everything is a complete blur. I am a past scrapbooker and avid photo taker, but where is there time for all of that? There isn’t! When I found OneSecondEveryday it was like MAGIC! I can DO this. And especially when I discovered that because of Live Photo on my iPhone, SOOO many of my still photos were already little mini video snippets!! In the three years that I’ve been storing my one seconds, my TEENAGE kids have already changed so much. In the blink of eye, but now I can play my snippets and see just how much I have to be grateful for. I see just how full my life is! Even in the ordinary and small, seemingly insignificant moments. Thank you, one second creators, from the bottom of my heart for sharing this with the world!! You’ve definitely made it a better place. :)
2020 Goals
by BÜRDŠ on 2020/02/23 04:49
My New Years resolution was to use this app to make an entire video of 2020. I have seen this app in the past on the App Store, but could never justify paying for it. I believe it used to be $1.99 back then. I think looking back that was a pretty generous price for what this app offers. Even the non-premium version has plenty of useful features without having to upgrade. I love ❤️ the ability to add your Live Photo’s to your memories for each day out of the month for that added level of immersion. The auto-fill feature makes it completely effortless to add your memories for that particular day automatically, and it backs up and syncs with your iCloud Photo Library in the background which is super handy. In the 2 short months I’ve used this app to log 2020, it comes highly recommended. Don’t just take my word for it, try it yourself. You literally have nothing to lose now that it’s a free download.
First App Review Ever (This App is Worthy of One!)
by JohnA2223 on 2020/02/06 07:16
This app is hands down the best app I ever discovered browsing the App Store in my 10+ years of owning a smart phone. The premium version is worth every penny. As a newer parent (my daughter is two now) and someone that does a lot of traveling, this app has made reminiscing on the past such a beautiful fluid experience. IF YOU HAVE A SMALL CHILD THIS APP IS A MUST HAVE!! The ability for you to make a meaningful and fun video of your child’s formative years is priceless. The music that is available for you to put over the pictures and short video clips makes the watching experience that much more sentimental and impactful. The option to add time stamps to each clip is another great feature, and way to further refresh your memory of a specific event, or even just a normal day in the life of you. Download it right now and make your past and future life experiences more meaningful! - Guy M.
Favorite app on my phone
by california danser on 2019/08/23 13:26
I’ve done 1SE everyday for almost three years. The first year i started one year before our wedding and set it to music and got a projection screen and debuted it to my then fiancé and all our friends the night before our wedding at our rehearsal dinner. The second year i got pregnant. Now I’m almost done with the third year featuring our six month old baby! It’s such a fun thing to have, all our friends know we do it and when we hang out ask if they’ll make it in the second of the day. It’s an amazing way to look back and remember all the amazing seconds big and small that make up life. It’s kept me off instagram and enjoying life. Many friends have said they don’t have time to do it, but I don’t add a second everyday, I usually go back a month later and pick seconds. So if you already take videos most days anyway it’s super easy to go back later and do. Highly recommend!
Life changing
by kmf1201 on 2020/10/19 00:24
This app is amazing. It changes your outlook on your day-to-day life, where you’ll start seeing the value in even the most mundane parts of your day. Its the most genuine and real way to share your experiences with friends and family. Keeping up with my 1second videos every day helps me keep up with my life in real time and helps me think about what i love most about my day. The collab features are so fun, ive never been able to create genuine content of shared experiences like this with my friends before. The customer support team is excellent and the app design is beautiful and user friendly. This is an incredible company that runs its business on very admirable and progressive qualities and values. Not only is the product great, but you will be supporting a socially and technologically responsible business model that should be the standard for anyone in the business!
Umm???
by girl with a love for seconds on 2019/06/06 19:26
Ok so let me tell you: I LOVE this app. I use it everyday to take videos of my friends and can’t wait to see how it all turns out at the end of the year. All of my friends want to be in my one second each day, and they have fun deciding on what to do in the second that they have. But recently, something has been different. I’m unable to take a long video, and then chop it down into a second. Rather, the app takes a random portion of the video and puts it in, and it doesn’t let me choose the part of the video that I want. Maybe there’s a step I’m missing or a button I’m supposed to push? But I never had to do anything before and it would just let me do what I had to do to the video. If chopping the video has become a premium thing, I am more than disappointed. And so, even though I love this app and the idea behind it, I cannot give it a full 5 stars. Thank you for your time, hopefully this is a just a lil problem or I’m doing something wrong :)
I enjoy it but it definitely has drawbacks...
by PshhItsLauren on 2018/02/16 03:17
Firstly, I don’t regret buying this app, but the “one second” every day concept is a bit...limited now. This app allows you to increase individual snippets to 1.5 seconds, and you can choose up to two per day. However, there have been many, MANY days when I wished I could add more, slightly longer snippets. At times, I’ve even added snippets from certain days to the WRONG day just so I could have that moment in the compilation, and the inability to remove the date stamp means I’m just lying to everyone. Ultimately, I just end up wishing I had complete control. I would have paid more for the app with the promise of a limitless snippet composer, honestly. Secondly, I personally do not take issue with the location and font of the date stamp, but if I did, I would probably not use the app at all, and this review would be very very different. So please allow people more options there. Lastly, any real video editing software is effectively nonexistent. Thank you for fixing the issues with orientation etc. that you have already, but honestly why can people not put their videos to music? Why can I not add any effects whatsoever within the app itself? It’s just...disappointing. I love the idea behind this app, and the motivation of the person who created it, but...all that innovative creativity has really come to a standstill. I’d just like to see more.
Last update added a huge logo to my videos
by Hipeople:) on 2020/01/08 08:17
I understand that they want to have credit for the content they produce, but the huge logo in the corner has made me not want to continue using the app. I told all of my friends who use the app to not update, and many of them saved their 2019 videos and stopped using the app on 2020 because they also do not want a video with a logo. I, and the rest of my friends, are decent enough to keep the logo that is inserted at the end of each video because it’s a great app and a concept that should be given credit where it’s due. However, $4 per month is not worth any of the other features they offer so I do not have any reason to upgrade. I really hope that this automatic logo will end so I can continue to enjoy the videos I make. In the meantime, I will be using iMovie to compile the rest of my second videos because it is just as simple and actually offers a lot more customizations. Plus, I can be sure that it will be safely backed up to my iCloud in the case that my phone breaks or is lost.
Will never please some people. At all
by Wolfed Up on 2019/06/08 21:38
I&#39;ve used this app for a year and a half now. Gives me a great way to simply scroll quickly back through the many memories during that time. Its a great little video diary. I personally have been very pleased with it during that time. I don&#39;t pay for the monthly subscription but have never felt that I needed to. It performs well on just the free version and gives me everything I need to create those memories. I can&#39;t understand why people want to beat on it. Yes, I do like the vertical format better. I think it&#39;s well developed and you&#39;ll be hard pressed to find anything that does the job as well, much less better. FOR FREE! I will say this, after a year and a half it will take up some memory on your phone. Cloud backups???? I&#39;d pay for that.
Great App, Two Drawbacks
by kmbrlymarie01 on 2019/02/06 06:04
I love this app so far! It serves as great a reminder to pause and reflect on the beautiful little moments in your life. My goal is to upload and write an entry each day in 2019. There are only two things that I wish it could do: 1) use in Portrait (upright) setting vs only in Landscape (sideways). I have small hands and never type using both hands on the full keyboard on my iPhone XS. It’s very unnatural and clunky and I end up making a lot of typos that autocorrect doesn’t seem to catch. It makes for constant editing and means it takes much longer to write a quick entry than it should. It’s frustrating. 2) I would love the ability to set a simple notification to be sent at a specific time each day to remind you to upload a picture and jot down an entry. All in all, though, still a great app. Looking forward to seeing how it all turns out at the end of the year!
Love it
by ItsSoBei on 2019/12/09 16:59
So this is a little pricey but what’s the price of life definitely priceless. I love this app I love the way it works I love the way it applies itself to platform there are some tweaks that need to be done through an app but it is definitely what it says it is it is a video diary. And also let you link into your Instagram card to keep things up-to-date today this is the second highest rating I have given an app as I’ve been reviewing several self-help apps, journaling apps ,Video diaries, and motivational apps this one is definitely put together beautifully as a video diary I really wish it would team up with Fabulous and Day One I think that be the most mad awesome Calabro but that’s just my opinion. I’m not a writer is always grandma is I love video recording even talk to text so for me this pops! But all in all I love this app I can’t wait to use it with my Instagram is totally awesome and that is Ya buzz with the Bei!
The best app I’ve ever had
by Lifeanyone? on 2018/09/21 16:46
I’ve been using one second every day for almost 3 years now. At this point I honestly can’t see myself not doing it. The experience of watching back your year is so cathartic and fantastic to relieve experiences and remember the contexts that I would recommend everyone to get this app. From a technical standpoint it’s very easy to use and is very user-friendly, plus the staff who have created this app are very helpful and very good at connecting with their users over social media. They say the best camera is the one you have with you and with the prevalence of smart phones nowadays it’s never been easier to record a little slice of your life that you and your family will have to look back on whenever you’d like.
Not sure if I like I...
by RonCarter618 on 2018/02/08 15:55
I was using another one second app which was free but limited without upgrading to pro. I decided to download this app instead since it’s the original one second app and I like that you can work on separate projects, so I can keep my sons first year separate from our 2018, one of the features the other app lacked. However, I’m not feeling this app that much. First of all, landscape UI is annoying to work with. Second, yes you can rotate your video to portrait mode but the date remains in landscape and is big, bold, and takes over the clip. I understand that the date is kind of the point of the one second every day concept but if we can’t have the option to remove it, it would be nice to at least be able to move it to whichever corner we want and make it smaller so the focus is on the video and not the dates. Anyways, I will give this app another week just to see but I most likely will go back to the other app.
Please change the caption font back!!
by My Name is Jessica on 2020/01/25 15:45
I have been using this app since 2018 and always tell my friends about it. Like other reviewers, I am annoyed with the most recent update. There are many things that bother me, but one of the biggest is the caption font on videos. Originally, the font matched the date font (if I remember correctly) and now it is a non-italicized sans serif with an unnecessary amount of letter spacing. Because of the letter spacing, I can’t fit as much info in the caption. It’s also impossible to read on the video itself because there is no longer a shadow on the text. Quite frankly, it was an unnecessary change and has made the caption illegible. I have other qualms with this update that other reviewers have mentioned, but the caption font makes me cringe every time I see it. Please change it back or give users the option to change the font in settings.
Updated 8/28: still vertical-only. Bummed to see it's still a vertical-only app
by librarygrrrl on 2019/07/28 22:54
8/28 update: still not vertical and responses to other reviews indicate that it&#39;s &#34;a lot of work&#34; to make it a horizontal app again. Well, yeah. I&#39;m sure it was a lot of effort to un-horizontal it in the first place. But given the number of long-time users who bailed on the app once you did that, I certainly hope you are putting in the effort. Original: Didn&#39;t update in April when it went vertical-only because I&#39;m middle-aged and my eyes can&#39;t focus on images that small. Sad to see that this July update hasn&#39;t addressed that issue. Many of my friends who normally post 1SE videos each month on Instagram haven&#39;t since that last update - I&#39;m relieved that I didn&#39;t update and can still use it horizontally. Please for the love of my old eyes, allow this app to be vertical OR horizontal! Other than this (deal-breaker) issue, I LOVE this app.
Latest update crop proportion issue
by yoooozipi on 2019/06/29 13:32
Great app overall. This is probably the only app that I am actually sticking with for more than a year now. The latest update messed up the horizontal proportion though, so you’d always crop a bottom portion of the video without knowing how much it’ll crop out. This is consistent either you’re using the phone’s own camera or the one inside the app. I find this very buggy since I am very mindful of the composition when making clips. Also the user interface used to be a lot more simple in the previous version, where you could launch the app and start taking your one second within one click, whereas now it’s annoying to have to click three buttons to start video recording. That precious one second to be recorded can flee in an instant — a bird, a moving train, a sound... Very critical to keep it simple so those moments are captured.
Horrible update
by Fhgvsdgilcdgjg on 2019/03/09 05:12
First time I’ve ever written a review for an app. I bought this app around three years ago and used it faithfully for the past three years. Within the last few months, the developer has been pushing an aggressive subscription campaign that I feel hinders the app. As many people of Artie said another reviews this was a paid app in which many of us purchased. I do not appreciate this push towards a subscription-based model. Secondly, with the new update, mashing your one second videos has become a pain. The vertical alignment crams many of the features into a small space which makes it incredibly difficult to properly select your one second. An app that used to be very intuitive and allowed you to quickly journal the events for the day has become a laborious process. If changes are not made to the app within the year I plan to move on and find another video journaling app.
My favorite app
by SneakingMagpie on 2019/12/09 05:40
I absolutely adore this app- so much so that I paid for the pro version (I almost never do this for anything!) I love being able to watch my year go by and relive small moments that may otherwise have been forgotten. As for previous complaints, I haven’t had any issues with the functionality and find it completely user friendly- and I’m terrible with tech. Like the absolute worse. Maybe a previous update had some glitches but I haven’t experienced a single one and I’ve been using the app regularly since June now. I also love that the app works with Live Photos like a previous user mentioned. You can also now choose the orientation of the videos. I highly recommend it to all of my family and friends.
Rebuying your already purchased content.
by Jpesse25 on 2018/12/24 04:32
1 Second Everyday has been a really awesome part of my year. It’s allowed me to document my last months in high school, my relaxing and fun filled summer vacation, and the exciting new experiences I’ve had during my first semester of college. When I bought the app (almost exactly a year ago), it was somewhere between 5-10 dollars... I don’t remember the price exactly. However, what I do remember was thinking to myself, “this will be a worthwhile investment.” Up until this point in time, this thought had been true. But with the release of 1se’s pro-subscription content, comes the restriction of loads of features that came readily available with the original purchase of the app. You can no longer add two clips to a given day, or make a clip longer than 1 second. I know this complaint seems small, but it’s completely changed the way I experience this application that I already payed for. I still think this experience was worth the original investment, but I’m not going to pay more to use features that were already available to me. I’m just not going to use 1se again. Best, J
Best Decision
by _lisa__ on 2018/12/17 04:27
I never ever write reviews, but this is the best app! I have tried for years to document my life in some way from journaling to trying to take a daily picture. However theres something so amazing about a quick second video of that day, and with that second you instantly are able to remember what you were doing on that day, and why it was so important that you recorded it. Many feel that a second is not enough time, but that’s kind of the beauty in the app your life consists of seemingly unimportant seconds but then when you look back at your year, all those sec that didn’t see important make up your life, and it is almost as if you gave yourself a gift of a beautiful video of your life.
Favorite App, everyone should use it!
by Andrew Ols on 2019/03/02 16:08
I first downloaded this in March of 2014 and ever since it has been by far my favorite app. It’s truly a great way to compile your memories - and in many ways it helps me to remember months and years gone by. Weeks and months that were previously forgettable I can now go back and view, remembering the smaller moments and the previously unmemorable days. The joy that comes with compiling a month of seconds is something I’ll never tire of. I recommend everyone use it. I even created a second timeline just to track the first year of our little puppies life - and what a pleasure that has been to go back and watch, seeing him grow from a small cute pup to the good good doggo he is today!
Go-to memory keeper
by Superspeedy2012 on 2018/12/31 23:00
I’ve had this app for a few years now, and enjoy it more than ever. I went with the pro membership, which isn’t necessary but I did it for the backups and mostly for the music overlay. So many great choices to add different moods to my videos, and something about the music makes my memories seem like a cohesive movie montage, which I LOVE and then feel compelled to share with family and friends. There have been a few updates and changes to the app over the years - it feels like the people behind this app do a great job of implementing user feedback with all of the enhancements. Overall: easy to use and still my favorite way of saving life’s little moments
Great app. Needs some adjustments and iPad functionality
by rivertaylor on 2020/07/19 22:10
I love 1 second everyday, and I’ve been using it for the past few years. However, I don’t love the verticality of the newer UI, and I’ve noticed the text is far too big in the videos now. It used to auto-adjust to fit the length of the caption (i like to add locations of where I’m at, along with movie titles and/or episode titles if it’s a clip from a show) and now it just cuts the text off past a certain point. Mostly just a few gripes of what is otherwise a great app but if the text size was fixed it would greatly improve the user experience for me. Also, would very much appreciate the addition of an iPad compatible app. I can use the mobile version which is fine, but I would like to be able to use the app on my iPad, which is my daily driver device.
Colors
by brynstef on 2018/02/12 23:24
Having missed days in the calendar be the same color as days with video is very confusing. I used to be able to tell immediately if I had not taken a video for the day, when the box was grey. But now with all the days being the same color I find myself missing many days. My 3rd year is not getting off to a great start since I updated. *** In response to developer. I am not confused. I understand the concept of the film icon showing on days where there is media. What my complaint is about is that the new update is more subtle than the original app. All the days are the same color regardless if there is media for that day or not. Different colors was a good thing. Your pasted “help” response has nothing to do with my complaint.
Love looking back at my memories!
by Kylielekylie on 2020/02/03 02:08
I’m relatively new to the app, and I don’t take many pictures on my camera roll. Most of the pictures in my video are from snapchats that I saved, downloaded to my camera, and then added to the video. I know several of my friends who use this app feel the same way as I do. If there were a way to make it easier to get the clip from Snapchat to 1Sec that would be great. I understand that they are different platforms but maybe look into that? I’ve been using the app for a while now and sometimes when I try to rewatch a snippet it freezes/ glitches. This doesn’t happen when I watch the whole video but sometimes I want to look back at just one day. I would like it if this could be fixed.
A good app with ridiculous subscription option
by Krazy Kris1 on 2018/09/08 03:06
I bought this around the beginning of the year and have really enjoyed using it. However, this new subscription model that came with the most recent update seems greedy and unnecessary. The idea of keeping pretty basic features (brightness controls, 3 second snippets) gated behind a paywall is extremely frustrating. Partly because you have to pay for the app to begin with, but also because it is a monthly subscription. These kinds of ways of monetizing customers borders on predatory. If it were a free app, it’d make a bit more sense, but asking customers to drop more money is honestly kind of ridiculous when the features being offered don’t justify the subscription model. I will continue using the version I paid for, but now will be more wary of any further updates or apps this developer puts out.
Just another recurring bill. Probably the future to have everything be SaaS
by DC biker 123 on 2019/01/16 23:52
The app itself is pretty good. I used it for an extended trip and now have a good video record of it. The problem I have is the Software as a Service (SaaS) model that this has turned into. So you have to buy the app, and if you want the “advanced” features you have to pay $4 per month or $30 per year. The main feature they brag about is the unlimited backups. You can already back this up to iTunes. I pay $1 per month for 50Gb of extra storage. So that doesn’t really affect me much. The other features are just one off changes that don’t cost money for the company post implementation. Volume control? Brightness adjustment? Remove branding? Allow for 3 second snips? These could all be rolled out as courtesy for those of us who paid the $5 for the app. Or they could price it into the upfront cost of the app. I’ve seen the developers say they need to charge to keep a paid app free from ads. Not sure I follow that logic. Anyway, it’s probably just a sign of the times. We now see almost all software trying to turn into this ridiculous SaaS model. Hopefully people start to reject it and companies just price their products accordingly upfront.
change it back please!
by lindsnova on 2019/03/03 03:31
I never write reviews for literally anything so that just shows how bad this update really is. The app used to be so easy to use but with this new vertical version it is so difficult to even add the content for the day. It’s less visually attractive and I feel as though it was definitely more user friendly the way it used to be, horizontally. To me the social media layout with a profile and a feed does nothing for me and is pretty useless. I’m not interested in seeing the feed that is presented within the app. I bought this app so I can work on my in app projects and that’s it. I used to love this app but this update has kinda taken the joy of adding a new second everyday because it is so difficult to use. This app means a lot to me, as well as the projects I make on this application. I think many users, including myself, would rather have the former, more accessible version.
Love It!
by sbevans3 on 2019/06/21 00:37
I downloaded the 1secondeveryday app after seeing a friend use it for a while. I was interested in trying it out so I downloaded it and have been using it since the beginning of this year. I watched a TED talk on this app and what to use it for. I liked the idea of not only using the app for the happy moments, or big adventures but also using the app for the small or sad moments. When I go back and watch my month (and one day my year)in review, I remember all those moments that got me to where I am now. Also, I really love not being stuck behind my phone at a concert or on a trip. I can just capture a glimpse of a moment so I can remember it later. I really enjoy this app!
i LOVE this app
by averysreviews on 2020/04/03 20:22
i downloaded this app at the new year and i don’t regret it one bit. some days i’ll forget to put in my video or picture for that day, but then i’ll easily go to my camera roll and find the date then insert. i love rewatching my year so far to see how i’ve changed (even though it’s only march)!! i totally recommend because it’s great for memories and super fun to do! One thing i would change is the notifications. it does send reminders but i wish u could maybe personalize it because the normal notifs are just quotes which is cool but i wish i could get it to say something like ,”put your second in!” regardless great app perfect for a fun look back!!
I wish I had this app sooner!
by High5iver on 2018/11/21 02:32
With 1 second every day I was able to capture the beginning of me and my wife’s marriage, our first pet, and countless family memories. I cannot urge people enough to download this app. Being able to catch a moment of every day gives such a beautiful perspective on life. I look and see more notable moments throughout my day, and once you get past the “I have to look everyday for a second” and just let your seconds find you, you’ll see what countless other people love about this app! I subscribed to the pro version to help me capture even more though it’s optional at least try the app to decide. It’ll be worth it either way
I love a company who stands by their product
by Kellykardos on 2020/04/01 17:17
I live this app and always look forward to posting my monthly videos on IG. I went pro some time ago and I noticed last month after I posted the video the background noise came through the music I added. I know I always toggle the volume of my snippet to off and was self doubting myself until I fired off an email &amp; was told that I wasn’t the only one having this issue.(phew) So the same issue happened again this month. I fired of another email and Marilyn is ALWAYS quick to respond. She asked me to update the newest version and lo &amp; behold the bug was fixed. Now THAT’S a company I want to get behind! Thanks guys! Kelly
Deletes everything
by Cutie._.Dancer on 2018/06/28 19:45
I spent 2 hours editing videos for this app. I didn’t mind because it wasn’t a big deal, but that changed quickly. I exited out of the app after I saved everything and didn’t use it for three days. When I went back to the app, all of the videos I spent so long on had vanished and it made me create a whole new account without even giving me the option of signing in. At first I didn’t panic because i thought that just might have been their version of a login page. I typed in the same email I used originally and submitted it. It accepted my email, but instead of signing me in it created a whole new account. This resulted in me losing months worth of editing (the editing took me a very long time because I got the app a month after when I wanted the timeline to start so I had a lot of catching up to do). I’m beyond upset that I wasted money on this awful app!
New update
by Sassafras and Molasses on 2019/03/21 23:34
I used to love this app and have plugged it in my parents group on Facebook. Now though I can’t take videos directly from the app; I have to make a video and then upload it. I liked being able to do that before because I don’t want all the extra steps. I’ll continue to use it as I’ve used since my son’s birth and it’s been a great way to memorialize the year. Plus I also paid a premium for it so I better use it or it will go to waste. I don’t want to do a journal and share with other people; I just want to take videos and mash it together as I see fit. Otherwise the app is great and I love seeing the videos I make when it’s my son’s birthday.
Great app, but a little too simplistic

I use the free version, which I dont mind, It does get the job done, however, I wish the editing skills for the pictures and videos were the same, it&#39;s a bit odd/silly that I can rotate my videos, but not my photos. I can also zoom in and out however much I&#39;d like on the photos, but i either have to zoom all the way in with my videos, or all the way out, nothing in between. It&#39;s somewhat frustrating that I also can&#39;t edit the orientation or size of previous snippets. I have to go through the trouble of replacing the snippet completely. It&#39;s a nice app, and makes it a lot easier to make a video compilations, but for such a nice looking app with a great concept, its weird that these simple features that most apps have don&#39;t exist.
