Good stuff 4/5
Cool app. Polished. However, please fix it so it’s “every day.” Bad grammar hurts.
Intro Video 2/5
The app may be neat but having to watch the intro video with no way to close it every time you open it is maddening. It isn’t usable like this.
Great but needs collaboration 3/5
By Really cool girlgirlgirlgirl
I really love the idea, but I’d love it if it was possible to add another person so that we can collaborate
Great app, but needs an iPad version! 4/5
By North Texas Reviewer
I love this app. My kids are fascinated to see what Seconds of the Day I have selected. They often try to create interesting vignettes, in the hope that they could become the Second of the Day. Here’s my one beef with the app: 100% of my use of the app is on my iPad, but the app is formatted for the iPhone, so it has to be blown up to dill the iPad screen. Lame! Please, mister or madam developer, make the appropriate tweaks that would allow this app to fill my full iPad screen. Thanks!
Desktop version 4/5
Finally a way to support this team! 5/5
By Sexy pizza
This app is everything . So happy I finally have a way to support the team. Anyone who has used this app for years, knows how rigorously this team maintains it. Everything right down to their customer service is thoughtful and on point.
Keep it up!
Ignore the folks on here that are bitter that they no longer get to ride the “free” wave...or that the illusion of paying for a product one time entitled you to a beautifully updated experience every time you use it...for the rest of your life....without ads...without selling off your privacy.
Pay for products you believe in and support the companies that make them. I wished they asked for my money sooner.
1 second is exactly how much of your day others care to see 😁 5/5
Using this has been the most fun I’ve ever had compiling bits of life.
Like the app 5/5
The app is really effective and can touch yours and many hearts
This is seriously by far the coolest app I could ever imagine I never ever ever pay for apps ever and this one I had to get a subscription to I want to see what it looks like a year wow
By Gina Sm
Documenting life with kids has always been a chore for me till I found this app. Thanks for making life easier!
By Lollipop cookie
It won’t even let me add my personal music. I just wanna be able to add songs w lyrics. Not just some time of something in the background
Excellent app 5/5

Great App, Two Drawbacks 4/5
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!
What’s the point? 1/5
By Mer Mary
I don’t really understand the point of having a free option if you’re going to have us upgrade the app and then basically take everything away. I’ve been using it for a year now and liked the free version because it was simple and I didn’t need all the fancy stuff. Now after a year I either have to spend an outrageous amount of money for options I don’t even need, or risk losing all the memories I have captured. This app isn’t worth the yearly price they’re now asking. Why take away unlimited back ups? Clearly just to make money. This would have been 5 stars if it wasn’t for this last update.
Great job 5/5
Subscription option and Horrific UX team up to make this free app worth exactly what ya pay for it 1/5
I’d like the pro version and would be happy to pay. But, no, I’m not going to “subscribe” — that’s just silly.
Also, the designers insist on bizarre UX that doesn’t follow any normal conventions. As a result, it’s really easy to lose data, which is frustrating when you’re capturing a brief “second” and that you can’t re-take.
Overall, I paid zero and that’s what it’s worth so I guess it’s fair :)
Price Change? 3/5
Don’t get me wrong, this app is really nice and I’ve been using since August of 2018 and I usually don’t spend a lot of money on apps but I felt that this would be good to invest on. It was great but all of the sudden a few months later there was a subscription towards it and I find out the app is free??
I guess it’s because I’m not a long time user that makes me more mad because it just makes me feel like I wasted money when I could have waited a little longer to get it for free since I wasn’t going to get a membership anyways. I just wish there would be some sort of benefit, refund, or anything for those who actually paid for the app but I guess that can’t be done.
Great concept but buggy 2/5
I love the idea and want to use it but a bug makes me unable to exit and makes me have to shut down my phone to exit the app
1se is amazing! 5/5
Now This is exactly what I have been looking for. Everything from the design to how easy it is to use is spot on. I absolutely love this app! It really helps showcase all the beautiful moments I have had throughout the year. I literally can’t get enough of one second everyday. They are doing it right!
Like an electronic song....the glitch I can go without 4/5
Love the concept of the app! It works well for the most part but occasionally it is glitchy when the videos mash. I find some videos just don’t work well. Overall, I’m happy with it and love it for the memories it helps bring up!
Videos Gone 1/5
By / ///:::::/// /
I studied abroad and used this app to document the entire experience. I saved the mash up to my camera roll multiple times by the end of the semester, but once I deleted the app, all the videos are gone from my camera roll. I don’t understand and lost the compilation because I didn’t have an account :(
Requires an account before you can use the app. 1/5
I’m not creating an account for an app that I’ve never used just to see if I want to use it.
I love it, but.... 3/5
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.
Love app, hate subscription 3/5
The app works fine but I no longer need my subscription and it won’t let me downgrade, only upgrade. I have the basic monthly sub. And I want to go back to the free version but I’ve tried the website, app, App Store, and settings app and I can’t seem to figure it out.
App closes every time I try to upload a video 2/5
I had this app for a few months and it worked fine, but when I got a new phone and transferred over my cloud data- this app refused to allow me to upload any saved videos and would proceed to shut down whenever I tried. After updating to try and fix it the same thing continued to happen. Please help!
Landscape mode only...? Really? 2/5
Landscape mode only...? Really?
Not worth the price 1/5
$29.99 is what this cost every year! This is ridiculous and way over priced! I got the bill today and was shocked! The app just plays one second of what you have on your camera roll, so um that costs $29.99 a year! Yeah, I’m calling Apple to get a refund because the price was not clear when this was downloaded, I’m very disappointed.
Such a good idea and such good potential 3/5
But unfortunately I can’t get passed the landscape-only choice you made. I wish you would reconsider, both for the app UX (so awkward and unnatural to use) and the generated videos. I think I have a majority of portait mode images and videos on my library unfortunately .
Wonderfully fun! 5/5
This app is so easy and fun. And I’m making memories. Seriously it’s my all time favorite app I own.
Is there another version I don’t know about? 1/5
I downloaded this app a few days ago because I loved the video that my friend posted last year. It was free and I was excited. When I went to start posting my videos I noticed I couldn’t do more then 1 clip until I upgraded to pro. I was confused because my friend does not pay for pro and can post 2 videos a day.
I keep seeing reviews about how people paid like $5 for the app initially but I didn’t have that option. Is the paid app no longer an option. I would happily pay $5 up front.
I don’t need any of other options for pro it isn’t worth it for me. But I would love to just post 2 videos on some days.
Not worth it 1/5
I got this app in hopes it would make one second videos easier... it didn’t. Plus it’s $32 a year so not worth it. Also I thought I cancelled my account within the free trial but apparently not so got charged $32
great app!! i don’t like the monthly/yearly plan 3/5
By Boohoo blues
i love the app, i just would’ve rather spent the 5 dollars on it, than have to pay for it monthly/yearly
By Anonymous 10099999
I wish you didn’t have to pay for music other than that i love it. I want to add music to my year memories but because I don’t pay for this I don’t get it. I think you should allow others to be able to use music. It would make your app a lot better
Just another recurring bill. Probably the future to have everything be SaaS 3/5
By DC biker 123
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.
Great app but... 3/5
By by the way 95
I started using this app to document 2019 after a friend shared her 1SE for 2018. Such a fun idea and well designed and easy to use app. Most of all, I love taking a moment to document one second everyday. However, I am really annoyed that you can only add one clip per day without paying the ridiculous $39/year to upgrade to pro. Inserting two clips a day would literally be the only pro feature I would use so am hesitant to invest $39 for only 12 months. If there was a pro version of the app I would gladly pay a one time fee but am uncomfortable with the subscription format. Please bring the two clip a day feature to the free app!
Nice App 4/5
It’s been a good App so far. Easy to use and overall good concept. Wish was a little longer segments but not Worth $30 to me to upgrade by 2 seconds.
Issues and more issues 1/5
I hadn’t had many issues with the app until the end of the year when i tried to do a mash up of 2018 clips. There was an update at the end of the year the was glitchy and i lost all my clips that i worked on. the app tells me to sign in but then says I don’t have an account. Frustrating. I put a lot of work into this and it’s all gone.
So now I have to pay 3/5
So I paid to purchase the app, but now since the upgrade we have to pay for things that we were already able to use? Really stinks. I was fine with the upfront one-time purchase, but of course everyone is moving to annoying subscription based platforms!
Also, agree with previous comments about the awful font.
But I did enjoy the experience of recording my year...
A lot of potential but... 2/5
User interface leaves a lot to be desired. While it is pretty straightforward to add your pics, finding answers to questions is difficult, advanced features are difficult to find and creating new “projects” seems to mean starting over from scratch instead of being able to just cut and paste from the primary album. I subscribed to the pro version hoping the enhanced features would help with this and it immediately looks like it’s a waste of money. If I wanted some generic slideshow with cookie cutter music options I could have done all of this on Facebook.
Needs Rotate Option 4/5
I love this app- it’s been a great memory keeper for me!
My one critique would be it needs a rotation option. Some times I’ll try to add a picture and it fills sideways. Then I have to exit the app, find the picture in my Photos app, rotate the original, then come back to 1SE app to add the picture again. It seems like this could be an easy piece of technology to add.
If you don't upgrade to pro you have to take the video them out it into the app. Not worth the time.
Uh sti 5/5
Videos need to be able to be flipped 4/5
Great app love the concept but I’ll take videos every day with my phone straight up and sometimes they’ll turn out sideways In my 1second every day montage and sometimes they show up right side up and it ruins the video if there could be an update that allows u to fix this the app would deserve 5 stars
Love the app 4/5
Love the app. Easy to use. Would like to be able to use my videos in portrait mode so they are full screen.
More reminders needed 4/5
I love this app but I find it very hard to remember to add a video each day, so it would be great if the app had an option to send more notifications as reminders.
Game changer 5/5
By Smart t pant
And all of a sudden I’m starting to remember what I do each day just from 1 little second
Relatively easy to use and creative. No glitches of any kind, it’s cool!
Truly love this app and the mashup it has given me of my last year! What a wonderful way to keep memories!
