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."

Birthday mash
liz dugg on 8/16/2018
I am creating a birthday mash video for my daughter and can’t wait to put music to it😁
Got this app because of Mitchell Davis
destroywhitesupremacy on 8/14/2018
He compiled all of his seconds into one 30 min video and from what I saw it was amazing and I know it’s 5 stars and I hope I can keep up with this for as long as he has. Thanks Mitchell LLL4E
Love the Concept - Glitchy Though
Mo35533 on 8/12/2018
Love love the app, paid for it instantly to create a memory video for my daughter’s first birthday. However, I’ve been using it 2 days and it’s crashed 10+ times, glitches out repeatedly forcing me to force close it. If I use it more than 10min to repeatedly upload multiple days in a row it gets “tired” and starts glitching! Please fix these bugs, they’re super annoying for a $5 app. I have a 7+ and the latest OS available at this time.
6th year
julemurph on 8/9/2018
The best app on my phone
GWood12 on 8/7/2018
Super cool app, awesome idea, perfect execution!
Favorite App
tjdhgsbudv on 8/7/2018
This app is by far my favorite. It’s so easy, and I use it everyday. I love being able to look back on little snippets of everyday!
Worth the money
akm0629 on 8/6/2018
Love this app! There are lots of personal settings to edit your mash of videos.
Great idea- easy to use
AllieTowens on 8/2/2018
I love this idea. And I especially love that I can use Live Photo for my 1 second clips. No complicated app frills. This is the best way to capture a full month.
Life changing app
Jayteehunter on 8/2/2018
I’ve been using this app everyday since I installed it a couple months ago. I love the integration with iCloud because I can integrate my dslr footage in my video. All of my videos are on Google Photos, so it would be awesome if you guys can allow using footage from Google Photos as well so I can smash videos from all my past videos that are residing on Google Photos.
Date location on video
Ace Rikko on 7/31/2018
Great app and have been using it for a couple of months. Would be nice though to be able to reposition where the date shows.
needs longer clip option
Mom Vlog on 7/30/2018
clips only 1-1.5 second. would be nice to have longer options to add dimension to video.
SAMMY:P on 7/30/2018
I love this app but it’s been super glitchy the past week and I haven’t be able to post my videos for each day.
Awesome app
GodfatherManu on 7/29/2018
A friend told me about this app and I’m so glad he did. Picked it up within a few hours. Easy to navigate. I’ve laughed and laughed over the 1sec memories strung together to capture life. Get it today
Heartbroken & memories lost
LytleJG on 7/28/2018
This was by far my favorite app for the past year, and became the only effort I made to log videos or pictures as memories for our family. I became way less reliant on sharing videos and pictures via other social media platforms because I loved the way this app worked so much. My iPhone six was 16 GB, and my video stored in this app grew every day, becoming around 9 1/2 minutes long (with the 12+ gb used just for phone software, my phone had no other available storage). It housed memories like our cross-country, month-long road trip, and the day we found out I was pregnant, among other beautiful memories. The problem was, my phone used so much storage to save the app that I could not download my full video to save or share. I tried contacting support to see if there was a way I could login from another device to save my video as I went (on my computer preferably), but all I heard back was that they were working on that feature for the future. I deleted every other app on my phone but 1-Second Every Day, and still didn’t have enough storage to save my own video. My family and I were on a boat in the middle of a lake when a stranger offered to take a picture of the five of us, then accidentally dropped it in the water, and as I saw it drift down in the lake, my first and only thought was, “I now lost my whole 1-Second Every Day video.” About 13 months of daily videos, nearing 10 minutes long, completely unretrievable online to my knowledge. Can’t tell you how bummed I am, and how skeptical I am to work on another video within this app, to possibly lose it again in the future. It’s unreasonable to save a copy every few days, and I wish there was an online storage or log in capability in place for these situations. :( It would have been so fun to have a video that included finding out we were expecting, family members finding out, and then shots of him after he’s born and as he grows. Now he’s due in 3 weeks, and I can’t get those earlier moments back.
Great app
amydot on 7/28/2018
I’ve been using this app for 3 years now, and my only complaint is that it sometimes has issues downloading from the cloud, and I can’t seem to find a work around.
Great App - Terrible Backup
TPopD on 7/27/2018
I love this app for many reasons: nice interface, and just a wonderful way to really view all the little videos I take but never get time to fully watch. HOWEVER my children accidentally deleted the app and POOF! It's all gone. A complicated backup restore could be done using iCloud - but you would need to totally restore your entire phone. Risky. So manage this wisely.
I love this app so much
goldmountain11 on 7/26/2018
For me it slows down the passage of time and makes my memories easier to consume. I take photos so I can remember what a particular day was like; this app helps me relive every bit of it. SO worth the money.
1 second a day
Youuuu fiddling on 7/26/2018
I really really like this app. I would give it 5 stars, however when I compile my video together it freezes at some points of the video, then returns to normal. What's up with that? And suggestions on how to stop that from happening? Really enjoy the app and concept though. Would highly recommend to anybody skeptical about buying it.
julialblack on 7/23/2018
This is my favorite memory keeping tool!! It’s super easy to maintain and keep up with and I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE how my finished videos turn out!
Anna LOL poop on 7/23/2018
Since yesterday everytime I open the app it glitches me out so I can’t add my videos
Very practical
daisyart on 7/22/2018
Do you take thousands of pictures every year, store them on your phone or computer and never look at them again? That’s what I used to do before I downloaded this app. Now I just save the seconds on this app that capture the day and forget all the rest. It is incredibly freeing. I am released from having to save pictures that I’ll never look at again and yet I have a way to review the moments in my life that are precious. I recommend this out to everyone all the time.
I can’t turn the screen straight
djj bnrinenfcjid on 7/21/2018
It’s very hard to use
Hated person on 7/20/2018
I hate it
Great but.....
KSull04 on 7/11/2018
I really love this concept and the app is about average as far as ease of use. Videos export to your phone pretty easily. The only thing I wish is that there would be a way to add background music because six minutes for a year long video is a long time and one dimensional without something to go with it.
Phone crashed
TallgrassLandscaper on 7/9/2018
My iPhone 7 crashed and 1SE does not save, it has to be backed up. Glad that the other free apps I have save my pictures or I would have had nothing. Ok app, just be sure you save all your stuff on your own.
You pay a lot for NO backup of your videos
colhahn on 7/8/2018
I recently had to switch phones and all of my one second a day data was lost because the app does not create an account and save your data for you. I am so upset because video of the first year of my son’s life is gone. For an app that you pay for I would expect a lot more than just video clippings.
Terrific app!
ronwwheaton on 7/7/2018
Efficient and user friendly with many useful features.
Brilliant visual diary.
Brilliantpants on 7/4/2018
This app is so fun and satisfying to use. Elegant, simple design makes it pleasant and easy to get started and the fun results make it easy to keep up with. Using the app helps me remember to take more pictures and videos, but it can also be fun to see what my options are on days where I didn’t remember to deliberately record something to upload. I wish I’d found out about this sooner, but I’m so happy to have found it now.
Love this app but it has some bugs
jazzamonster on 7/4/2018
I’ve been using this app since january 1st of this year. I really enjoy it for what it’s intended for! It’s a lot of fun to look back. However, there’s one glitch that really annoys me and it has happened twice now. You are able to record your clip for the day in the app using quick record. And I usually use this method because it’s easier than open iphone camera app and then swiping to the video. So my problem is that twice I’ve recorded and then the video disappeared. It isn’t in my camera roll which all other clips save to. So now I missed out on my clip from the activity I was doing earlier. I hope they fix it because it’s really annoying and disappointing when I realized I need another clip.
One of my favorite apps
ExpensiveWino32 on 7/3/2018
I love this app. It’s super easy to use, and there are so many things you can do with it. It’s a great way to store an revisit memories, as well as create different kinds of compilations. The two changes I wish developers would make are the ability to edit snippets instead of having to replace them to change the second you chose, and to remember locations from previous snippets when creating a new one. But even with those two small hiccups, it’s truly one of my favorite apps.
Deletes everything
Cutie._.Dancer on 6/28/2018
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!
One fatal flaw
athomp2978 on 6/28/2018
I really love the app and have been using it for some time now, but I will eventually have to stop and delete the app because it stores all the videos on my phone and takes up a lot of space. It would be awesome if all the data was stored on some online server or at least have the option.
Good but crashes
dushanshan on 6/28/2018
Good idea but app crashes too often. Also would like to be able to select individual snippets to mash not just from start date to end date.
Creative exercise
Met1958 on 6/24/2018
I bought this app on the suggestion of my nephew who was filming the first year of his baby’s life.
One of the best parts of my day
ahp13 on 6/23/2018
I use this app every day!! I downloaded it the first of January of this year, and i’m so glad I did, it’s a fun way to look back on all the big and small things I’ve done, not to mention the app is really easy to use.
Great App
Jon102938 on 6/18/2018
This app is an awesome way to make memories last but the one suggestion I have is to make a way for the clips to be stored off in the cloud rather than directly on your phone.
Love it but...glitchy?
Bangarang!! on 6/16/2018
I LOVE this app and have told so many people about it. Lately I’m having a lot of problems uploading Live Photo’s, that wasn’t an issue before. Is there an update coming out soon to fix? I’m about a month behind bc I’ve been having so many issues. (I have an iPhone X)
Love the app, love the idea!
Khrisflohr on 6/13/2018
I’m a professional filmmaker and this little app is probably my favorite. Would be even better if we could apply filters.
Currently constantly crashing
ajain245 on 6/12/2018
Black screen, controls not working... What's up
JuniorBest on 6/10/2018
The new update is horrible. How do i go back to the version I was using before??
Videos won't work
PtvReneeKatz on 6/5/2018
I love this app so much but for the past few days my recently added videos won't play :( the audio works on them but the photo just stays still. I love this app and I plan to change my rating to a positive one once the issue is fixed but please fix this!!!
TheGringa on 6/5/2018
I bought this app at the beginning of the year and shared it with my husband using family sharing. He has absolutely loved it and chooses his photo every night before he goes to sleep. The only thing I would really like to see is a backup in case the photos were ever lost. He would be devastated if he lost all the work he has put into this.
Good App but Glitches
Difjffjdjd on 6/3/2018
Great app and easy to use but it keeps removing the date and my caption from some of my videos. When I play it, it just shows a blank video. This ruins the aesthetic of the video.
peejpodge on 6/1/2018
Loved the app but if you didn’t save the video to your phone is there no way to get back your videos If say you’re using the app off a new phone? Even if you use the same email?
So fun!
Je.remy on 6/1/2018
I love this app it’s so fun and I love how it auto fills for you in case you forget!
Great app!
CALEBBEAST6295😜 on 6/1/2018
Love the concept of this app and the app itself. Great support of product from the developer too. Download it! You won’t regret it!
Great app
heythereelly on 5/31/2018
I love this app so much
Hs22hxkgxjfz on 5/30/2018
This app is such a wonderful way to document life!
Best app ever!!
Tmy2222 on 5/29/2018
Seriously! Best ever! Even as it is I will use it for ever and recommend it to every single person ever! {However} Wish they would- -add music -a few more snippets per day. 2 is just not enough for super special days! 😭 -option to remove dates -option to customize placement/size of journal entry Also!!! It would be amazing if y’all would make another app just to make random slideshows! I would love this format to use just for special occasions, I haven’t found another app that works like this one as far as lay out and using live pictures!
Never have I ever reviewed an app before
applesauce2489 on 5/27/2018
But I am now, because this one deserves it. The cost upfront is the only bad thing about the app. So don’t buy coffee today or this week and it’s paid for. It is a beautiful time capsule that you can update everyday. I love the quotes they send as reminders. Looking back at my month makes me excited for the next. It also helped me realize how often I am at work or doing school work. It’s a great app. One of the best I’ve ever spent my money on.
