New in version 2.0.12

We now tell you our privacy policy and what we do with your personal information up front, and let you opt out of our anonymous analytics.

And of course it includes all the great, new features in 2.0:

This is a big one! Version 2 is here, and we have touched almost every corner of the app. Multiple snippets per day, rotate and zoom, mood tracking, improved journal, faves, and a brand new look that supports the iPhone X! We've worked really hard on this update and hope that you love it!

** NEW **

• Two separate snippets per day! Some days just have so much going on, so we've updated our timeline project to allow two separate snippets in one day!

• Rotate & Zoom! You asked we listened (finally). Pesky vertical videos? Begone! Lopsided videos ruining your mash? No more! You can now rotate and zoom to your heart's content.

• Mood Tracking! There are so many ways to remember your day. We added journaling earlier this year, and now we're continuing to expand it with a mood tracking feature!

• New look! We put a new coat of paint on most of the app, and it's looking pretty sweet if we say so ourselves!

• Favorite your snippets! You can favorite snippets (with the star button) and then choose to mash only your faves.

• Albums! You have a bunch of albums in the Photos app, and now you can use them to pick videos (and photos) to put in 1SE. That means you can also use media from iCloud shared albums now.

• Reminder badge! There's a setting you can turn on to put a red (1) badge on the 1SE app icon when you forget to record a snippet one day.

• iPhone X support! Full screen baby!

• Many other little improvements and fixes here and there.

It holds me accountable for making each day notable. When I turn 40, I'll have a 1 hour compilation that encapsulates my 30s. If I live to see 80 years of age, I'll have a 5-hour video that summarizes 50 years of my life."

I love this app so so much. It’s definitely one of my favorites. There’s only one thing that keeps me from giving this five stars. I wish there was an option to create an account that could save your videos if you switch to a new phone. I am getting a new phone and really sad that I cannot transfer my videos. This is the only change I would make to this app. Everything else is perfect!
clcfire on 5/20/2018
Love it for my granddaughter
Doesn’t save video in app
becjskqp on 5/19/2018
I wish there was a way to save the video that you record in the app. So many moments I wanted to keep all of it.
WJS1886 on 5/19/2018
Great app that helps people categorize their moments in life. Wish at least for the separate album section, that you can add more than 2 snips for a day.
Love it
Happy customer SC11 on 5/19/2018
Love this app. I’ve been using it for about 6 months now. You can make different/multiple timelines/video streams. I have one for all of my pets (shows them growing from kitten/puppy to adult form), another for me and friends, and one for big life events. They are fun to make and very enjoyable to look back upon. I highly recommend!
Nice app... when it works
eric_storms on 5/17/2018
Whenever I try to go back and add pictures from past years, the app becomes unresponsive after about three minutes. I know this isn’t the main purpose so idk if this is a problem being worked on
It’s cute
Grace Lewks on 5/15/2018
I really like the app it’s easy to use and makes cute videos. One thing I would add is the ability to add music or something to the final product. When you’re done with your video and want to save it to your phone there are no options to add music to the background (kinda like flipgram has). If you want to add music you have to go into a different editing app. But other than that 10/10
Great app!
Keenan P. on 5/14/2018
My only request is support for portrait mode!
new feature suggestion!
#1483 on 5/13/2018
Can you please make a function that lets you pick & choose specific dates to make a video?? Say you wanted a video just with seconds with one specific person-- there's currently no way to do that and it'd be awesome if you could make that happen!!! Love the app otherwise.
Great app but recent update causes crashing
diane00000001 on 5/13/2018
Love this app- downloaded end of March 2018 and it was working great! Updated 2 days ago and now keeps crashing when I open the app. Can’t watch, edit or record anything without this happening. Currently have version 2.0.11. Would give 5 stars if not for current issues. Update 5.13.18: Developers responded quickly and app no longer crashes on my end!! Updated from 4 to 5 stars!
Glitchy compilation
claschy on 5/13/2018
I really like this app, but I've been having issues with the clips glitching when it is put together. When I look at them individually, they're fine but it is very disappointing that they do not show up properly together
No way to recover photos.
Adrian Chan 0000 on 5/13/2018
I am very sad that all my memories are gone after I accidentally deleted the app. My phone doesn’t have enough memory, so I don’t use back ups. I was hoping that 1se would have been able to recover them from your server, but that was not the case.
Lost all of my work
TheGringa on 5/11/2018
I bought this app at the beginning of the year and shared it with my husband using family sharing. He absolutely loved it and for the next three months, had such a blast choosing his photo every day. But then a few weeks ago, the app completely crashed on his phone and he lost everything. He was devastated.
LaurenNicole13 on 5/10/2018
I genuinely loved this app but I did not realize nothing is actually saved. I got a new phone and lost months of tracking. I contacted support and the girl had an attitude and said there was nothing they could do. Don’t use this app unless you’re okay with losing all your hard work.
Camera not working, app crashes
ajyl on 5/9/2018
Update: camera works fine now! App works perfectly! When I go to the camera to record a video and I press the button to record the app crashes immediately. It was working fine before this update. Please fix this.
For the sentimental and creative
FrenchFr1ed on 5/7/2018
My friend turned me on to this app as a New Years resolution project. We started at the beginning of the year and have been using it since. The layout is very clean and user friendly! You can also have multiple projects going at once as well as two seconds per day(up to 1.5 seconds for each slot), which is super nice as I am a rather sentimental person and sometimes find multiple seconds to be worth saving and commemorating. Although it costs money, it’s worth it if you plan to use it a long time as there are no other apps for free that rival the ease of using this one.
3 year user!
Jlbateman on 5/5/2018
I love this app! It started as a New Year’s Resolution for me one year, and I loved it so much that I’ve never missed a day in all this time. The newest version is great in terms of editing and rotating video and also adding captions and mood if you want! It takes a few more “clicks” to enter your video but that’s okay. One suggestion I have is to make a “memories” feature. Since I’ve been using it for years now, it would be great to have a space where I could easily see this date’s vids from prior years! (Note: you can see any snip from any day at any time, this would just make it simpler). Thanks, 1SE! Keep up the great work!
astro_funk on 5/3/2018
Get this app
currycr on 5/3/2018
Edited: I absolutely love this app. I had an issue with the in app camera freezing and the developers messaged me within a week saying they were working on a fix. About few days later there was a patch to fix the issue. Not only is this app seamless and easy to use, the developers clearly take pride in producing a clean and intuitive app and it shows in the final product. Definitely worth the money!
They fix one thing and break another.
AdamBernard on 4/30/2018
They fixed crash on open. Great. Now they broke the sharing feature. Neat. Beware iPhone X users, I've experienced constant bugs while using this app. Patiently waiting for competition that knows what they are doing.
Great but buggy
Aseija on 4/29/2018
Great app but always crashes when using the in app video camera
Crashes every time
Beradg07 on 4/28/2018
I was excited about this app, but when I tried to take a video it crashes every time I push the record button. Very frustrating for a core feature not to work. [Update] They fixed it and I’m happy now. Really cool app. I love looking at the summary. Great idea.
Jmoneyonthegril on 4/27/2018
This app is really great and aesthetic. But save your money and get the free version.
Fun app
nextgeneric on 4/26/2018
Great and easy app to use to record 1-2 seconds daily. Fun to watch.
Really neat app
Torichii on 4/26/2018
Heard about it on NPR, been using for over 6 months... it’s such a unique experience to see your life condensed into minutes of memories. I love it.
App keeps crashing
agrawalyogesh on 4/26/2018
Everytime I click on the video icon the app crashes, I bought the app 3 days back and haven’t been successful in taking a single video. Also there is no way to create an account, where is my video getting saved. If I don’t want to save to iCloud what is my option.
Love this app but the current release is broken
FlyingKiwi999 on 4/26/2018
Crashes 100% of the time when tapping on the record button for a new snap.
Working great after update!
al_anders on 4/26/2018
Had to revise my review. Working AMAZING now with recent update. Thank you to the developers for promptly addressing issues and maintaining a great product. 10/10 ❤️💕
Life changing
wesstwng on 4/25/2018
This was one of the best purchases of my life- taking one second videos has changed the way I remember and cherish memories. The one setback to the app is that I can’t set my videos to music or standardize the volume of my clips. I currently have to export the clips myself, where I fix volume and add background music on my own!
My favorite app. Can't live without
LostVox on 4/25/2018
I have been using this app continually since I helped kickstart it. It has changed my life in that I can now remember the little moments in my life that I previously forgot. I cannot be without this app in it's ease of use and concept. And I plan to use it until the day I die. Thank you!
Won't work for me. UPDATED!
51963 forever on 4/25/2018
I addressed my frustration with the app constantly crashing earlier. However, within a day or two a new update was released fixing the bug. The app now runs perfectly. I like that you can have a "super second" which will lengthen your video to 1.5 seconds instead of 1 second. Thank you for addressing my issue!
New update
carramrod on 4/25/2018
Love this app. Fixed an issue with the camera that happened after the new update. Nice job.
Crashing now
CarlieArt on 4/25/2018
Last update makes it crash when you use the camera in the app. Now I have to take videos and upload them. Otherwise I love the app.
Crashes when I hit the record button
red_winer on 4/25/2018
The app started crashing every time I hit the record button. I deleted the app and reinstalled which then erased all my footage from the past month and still did not fix the crashing problem. Since I paid 4.99$ for the app, I feel like there should be better quality control. I hope I can get my money back.
ronalynteodoro on 4/25/2018
Same as everyone else — apps keeps crashing. Have toggled between high frame rate & regular frame rate. I’ve been recording a video then uploading so I don’t forget to upload daily. Fix soon please!
Suddenly won’t work
melissak1125 on 4/25/2018
I have been using this app for over a month with great enjoyment and then today I opened it up to record my one second, but when I hit the record button it shuts down. I’ve tried it repeatedly and it won’t work. I use the iPhone 8 Plus. What’s the problem?
Same issue as the rest of the recent reviews - crashing. Still a great app
 on 4/25/2018
Great app, but suddenly crashes every time I try to record. I’m sure it’ll be fixed quickly.
Crashes when I hit record
kevinosborn on 4/25/2018
Can’t record any video in the app with the latest update rendering it useless. Running iPhone 6s with iOS 11.3
Kea25 on 4/25/2018
Amazing app but the new update makes it keep crashing
App is crashing
Mickeyorbust on 4/24/2018
I’m so disappointed. I’ve been using this app since January 31st and now every time I try to record a video the app shuts down. Fix this fast please!
Unable to record in-app
_hernovio on 4/24/2018
Trying to record within the app automatically closes it. Send help.
Don’t download.
littlestolive on 4/24/2018
Paid $5 for an app that doesn’t work?? Stupid.
Current version closes upon trying to take a video
SJ1038693 on 4/24/2018
App literally does not work in most previous version. 1 star until fixed
daysharivera on 4/24/2018
Today’s new update has the app crashing every time I hit record. Please fix this quickly! :(
Awesome app
Kimguinilinguini on 4/24/2018
Completely worth buying ! Such a great idea and such a great app . It will not disappoint !
Won’t take videos - app crashes every time
CALEBBEAST6295😜 on 4/24/2018
I just downloaded the app and I can’t take videos. Every time I push the button to record, the app shuts down. I have searched for a solution and can’t find anything. Basically the app doesn’t work for me.
Instant crash every time hit record
PFjellman on 4/23/2018
This app is such a disappointment. Don’t know what’s causing it, but it instantly crashes every time I press record. It happens on multiple devices and multiple versions of iOS. I highly regret spending the money on this app. I wish I could have tested it first. Will be requesting a refund from Apple. This app looked great - bummer!
This app helps improve my mental health
JoeChMD16 on 4/23/2018
It rocks! Family and friends love the videos too!! Two things it needs in future updates: 1. Shutter button 1SE app for applewatch 2. Add a music soundtrack to video compilations
eliseh13 on 4/23/2018
I have had the app for over a year now and never had issues. Today when I go to record - the app immediately crashes. Also it’s not full screen anymore either. I saw it updated today so maybe there’s a bug. Please help- I want to keep up with it! Thank you!!
Only works in landscape mode
jpsteadman on 4/23/2018
This app does not have a portrait mode. The idea behind this app is a good concept, but I've stopped using it because this is so irritating. Update: they have said that they will update the app to include portrait mode! When this happens, I will update this review.
