Horrible UI 1/5
The UI is utterly insufferable. The design team at 1SE, if there is any, needs to revisit their affordance and calls to action, because they are not clear at all and result in me choosing the wrong action several times. And seriously? Forced landscape? Why don’t you let the user decide which was is the best way to experience the app? I trust them with these kind of usability decisions than your designers.
I enjoy it but it definitely has drawbacks... 4/5
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.
I had put in a month’s worth of video/pictures and it crashed. All was lost. Very frustrating.
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 THIS APP!- just one problem 5/5
I started using this app this year and it is so cute! It makes me remember the good things in each day, because we always tend to focus on the negative, it’s so cute I love everything about it! The only thing that I had an issue with, was when I played the “mashclip” video to see the snippets I had so far, the video started off with two deleted snippets which I replaced with a different videos! I don’t know why the deleted snippets are showing up in my video at the beginning! Is this a bug or is this supposed to happen?
Great, but... 4/5
Love the app, but I wish it would rotate to vertical...and, more than anything, that I could duplicate clips from one project to another.
What happened to Live Photo support? 1/5
I can’t use Live Photos as my 1s any more :/ I only get flat images, not the mini video clips I have in my gallery.
Not sure if I like I... 2/5
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.
Vertical video, horizontal date? 4/5
Awesome app and easy to use, loving the results thus far. I got the app at the beginning of the year when they added the option for vertical videos, which I have been doing, however the date and location are still horizontal which is a bit of a bummer and kinda ruins the video having a horizontal date on a vertical video. Besides that I've been having a blast creating and adding to my video everyday.
Love!! But.. 5/5
By L Sab
I absolutely love this app, especially at the end of the year and remembering. It is so easy to use! My only wish is that you would be able to make an account or something like that so you could access you videos from other devices.
The pics fly by 4/5
This app is amazing! Just one continuing critique: the pics, when uploaded instead of a video, fly by way too quickly. It seems like they only play for a half second. Hopefully a future update will consider lengthening the playback!
No Multi-Device Support 4/5
By Sir Bigglesworth
Would be so much better if I could take snippets from multiple devices logged in to the same 1SE account and add them to a shared timeline/project. This feature in conjunction with the ability to copy an edited snippet from one project and paste it to another project would make this app perfect. Hopefully an update with these features will be pushed out soon as I’m sure the app would gain that much more positive reviews, viral marketing, etcetera which would translate in to additional app purchases!
🤞 time will tell!
My favorite app ever, maybe. 5/5
It really is an amazing concept! I love the app, but I do desperately wish you could use it in portrait mode AND that you could have the option to mute a video. Sometimes the tv in the background or some vulgar language makes me decide not to include a video in my day, but if I could just mute that literally *one* second, it would still give the full effect of jogging that specific memory, but without the noise.
Seriously, this app has changed my life! I love going back to months before I got the app and going through those videos and pics, too!
Love it 😎
Crashes iPhone 8 Weekly 1/5
I’ve got a brand new iPhone 8, and every time this app updates it freezes and crashes my phone. I tried to deal with it, but it happens at least once a week so unfortunately I have to delete it :(
Only works on landscape mode 3/5
Why is it so difficult for this app to be able to display in portrait mode? The idea behind this app is a good concept, but I've stopped using it because this is so irritating.
Great for little ones 5/5
I have only been using this app a month, and already I can see how much my infant daughter has grown in just a handful of seconds. Longer clips would have turned into an unfinished project, but this app makes it easy to document milestones. Absolutely loving it.
My favorite app 5/5
I love this app. It keeps reminding me to record every day of my children's lives, ever if it's just for a few seconds. At the end of each month, I'm reminded of how amazing our life is, in spite of how long or hard each day may be. Best app ever ❤️
Love it! 5/5
Been using it for a few weeks and have gotten into the habit of looking for something great every day. Looking at the past moments of the month is very nice to remember what we do. App works beautifully and was well worth the $5
MAKE ACCOUNTS SO IT SAVES TO OTHER PHONES 4/5
i have used this app for over a year and my phone is almost due for an upgrade and so far i have not found how to transfer the days i have to a new phone. my main worry is that i will never be able to have the whole video compiled once i get a new phone.
New update lags my videos 2/5
I get what you guys were trying to do with the new update, it looks great. But the IPhone 6s can't handle the new changes. The videos lag HARD when mashing and you barely get anything smooth displayed. Not fun to show to friends anymore. I hope there will be some sort of optimization or possibly a minimal mode. Even when recording seconds there is a 2 second delay on recording on pressing the button. 5 stars before the update, 2 now because functionality was sacrificed for visuals.
Amazing adventure 5/5
It is kind of a miracle to see what all those seconds in your daily life add up to!!!
I loved it,but 4/5
By Elliot Sorenson
This app is amazing but when I got a new phone, I re-download the app and all of my days were missing and a cant get them back. I would love it if there were a way to get them back.
Love, but wish it had some other features... 4/5
This app is great, but I wish there was a fast way to search for videos/images. For instance, let’s say I forgot to capture something on May 10th, 2016, but I would like to add a picture from May 9th 2016 in that slot instead. There’s no quick way to get to it unless you scroll thru ALL of your photos or videos. A time consuming and painful task. 😩 I also wish there was a way to change font size, color & location for the date stamps and/or captions.
Love the new look, BUT.... 4/5
I love this app. I do, but it’s starting to annoy me when I try to add a video and it tells me it can’t load it, because of the iCloud. I would hope and imagine they would be compatible, but they are not. I turned off my iCloud just to cater to the app, but no dice.
Listen to me...use this app. Truly a great experience documenting life’s little moments, but please update this problem.
Easy to use 5/5
By Iron Methuselah
With the reminder I can always remember something to record. I am trying to record all the good stuff I have taken for granted in the past! So far so good.
By B Blische
I remember my life now!!!
Mostly love it 3/5
I love the idea of this app. However it is really frustrating to have to do everything in landscape view. I would think that an app that costs $5 should be more user friendly. Other than that, this app is great. Please fix.
Love it 5/5
By Chicago sports fan22222222
It’s so much for to pick my one second. I love it.
Love this app!! 5/5
Great way to see your life in a flash!
I’d give it 6 stars it’s so easy to use
Best memory keeper! 5/5
I was hesitant at first because of the cost. However it’s been worth every penny, and I’ve only had it for 2 weeks! It’s such an easy way to document something from your day, and when you go back to it, it triggers so many memories from the whole day! I’m enjoying it and find myself looking at my whole set of videos nightly. I keep telling my friends they need to get this app!
Good app but hard to type on 4/5
Could you guys add the ability to type in the diary portion in normal portrait mode? My hands are too small to use the landscape keyboard and it takes me too long due to typos. Thanks!
Good app but I wish you could play music in the background of videos
Best Paid App! 5/5
By Lolo in Mpls
I rarely pay for apps but sometimes you see one that j
As intuitive as it is important . Allowing to remember and rejoice in what will eventually be a calendar year of awesome memories .
Awesome App 5/5
I’m loving this app. Worth every penny. I created a 2017 summary in about an hour. From here on out I will update my projects everyday. Easy to use. Fabulous finished project.
Lock screen please 4/5
By Tennessee Slim
Can we have some privacy like a lock screen please! Then I will give 5 stars!
Entire App Please!
Nothing com-🍐’s 5/5
The app is easy to use in every way and displays memories in ways that you will wish you are capable of with your mind. Great app, will be using forever!
Awesome idea and app 5/5
I’m having a blast creating memories with this app. No real complaints, it’s very well constructed the only problem I’m having is pressing the turning camera button when using video. The square box lighting and positioning keeps picking up my finger and blocking it.
Met my expectations 5/5
By Arianna 🕊
I knew that this app was really good so that’s the main reason why I got it and just as I thought , it was amazing. I like how you can record in the app and another feature I like is that when you put your second already In the calandra , you can delete that video from your camera roll and it will still be saved . I think it’s worth the money :)
Weird Bug 3/5
I love this app and I think it’s such a cute idea, but in the new update, when I go to record a video, I can’t flip the camera. It’s stuck in the front camera and when I try to flip the camera, it just focuses on where the flip camera button is. Please fix this I love this app so much.
New update is terrible 2/5
Need to fix this! Great app before the recent "2.0 version" or whatever. Now, you cannot record within the app without it trying to send the new recording to the previous day. The record button within the specific day does not work either!
Touch buttons 5/5
I love the app but since the new update I can’t get the touch buttons (flash etc) to work and it’s not my phone
Love this app 4/5
I love this app and everything it has to offer but I am having an issue with being able to use the front camera all of a sudden. The app won’t let me click the switch camera button or any of the other buttons on the right side of the camera.
Perfect for watching my newborn baby grow! 5/5
I love using this app to take quick videos of my newborn baby. I’ve loved watching his monthly compilations, and I can’t wait to share when I’ve got videos from his whole first year alive. This is such a cool way to watch his development and remember all the little precious everyday moments.
Landscape only 2/5
It’s a great concept and the app seems well designed except for one major flaw: the entire interface is only available on landscape mode. I don’t use my phone in landscape for anything other than taking pictures or watching videos, and this is almost a deal breaker by itself.
There’s no reason why the app should force the entire UI of picking videos and days in landscape, which is a much more awkward way of using the phone.
If the concern is consistency of video aspect ratio, either make all the videos square or force landscape mode only when taking the video.
I only just recently got this app at the beginning of the new year because I'd heard good things, but I absolutely love it. It's perfect how it captures small moments from every day and brings them together. And I never write reviews for apps so even just the fact that I'm writing one says a lot.
Discovered The Best App 5/5
This app is incredible! What a great concept, idea & original idea to capture those few moments that life may offer! Open up the app, choose the date & shoot! Very simple to use, great tutorials & the customer support rocks! I had a problem, Jason responded & problem fixed! I love this app and can choose a date to see what was great! Thanks for this app & great job had by all!
So cool! 5/5
Is there a way to not have it ask for my email every time I open the app?
