Love It! 5/5
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!
Great App!!! 5/5
By Olivia Rodriguez
I have been using your app for the past couple months, and I absolutely love it!! The ability to log a snippet of my day, everyday while being able to look back at it is amazing!! Although a lot of my friends have this app as well, I wish there was a feature where I can follow other users and see the stories that they create/share and post on their profile.
Very cool 5/5
By Kenichi ohme
I love it
Vertical App 5/5
This app is so much better in vertical mode. There are many people complaining about the app going vertical, but they will either leave or get used to it. The app world is moving to vertical because of the ease of use overall. This is a great app and I’m happy about the latest innovations.
I was going to download this but...... 1/5
By CS Murphy
It appears that early adopters are getting the shaft because of selfish subscription annual fees which apps should not have to begin with. Apps should be a one time purchase and that is it. Stop jumping on the bandwagon no one wants to pay 3 to 6 dollars a month for such a Watered down app.
I’ll be going elsewhere for 1 second captures.
Do something different other than milking money out of people.
I’ve been using this app for at least a year now, and I really enjoy looking back at my memories. However, the new update is horrible on the iPhone X. It freezes every time I try to adjust a video clip. I am disappointed because I really wish I could keep using the app, but I don’t want to have to restart it every time I try to add a second.
Suddenly buggy 3/5
Not sure what’s going on, but when I open the app now and tap to add my snippet, it opens up my camera roll then completely freezes. I can’t select anything, can’t get out of the screen, and have to force quit the app. Even after force quitting, when I try again it doesn’t always work. It’s a shame because I love, love, love this app otherwise. Hope it gets fixed soon!
Seven years & counting 5/5
UPDATE 6/10/19: On the vertical update - it's a lot easier than the reviews let on. I find it much faster than before. Small tweaks could enhance the experience but overall - it's great! Putting down year 7 this year.
Amazing dedication to the community that follows this application! Really building out features that help continuing the journey.
Can’t find button to take new one seconds in the new update 1/5
Why fix something that’s already working? New update has made it harder to use - please stop writing this off as “bugs” - I am complaining about the UI, not any errors.
Will never please some people. At all 5/5
By Wolfed Up
I'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'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't understand why people want to beat on it. Yes, I do like the vertical format better. I think it's well developed and you'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'd pay for that.
So fun! 5/5
I love being able to capture moments and save them. Then reflect back over the month(s). It reminds me to not just snap the big moments but everyday little moments. So fun!
By girl with a love for seconds
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 :)
Vertical format is bad 1/5
Sort the reviews by Most Recent and you'll see the loyal fans do not like the vertical format. 1SE is burying their heads in the sand and marching on anyway. A perfect app is now an awful app.
Super easy and cute 5/5
It’s super easy to put together a monthly mashup, especially with live photos on an iPhone. The app finds the photos from the day you need and you can trim it quickly down to size. The results are absolutely the sweetest things. I keep rewatching the months that I’ve put together.
AMAZING PRODUCT-but... 4.7 stars (if I could) 5/5
By hopefuly-helpful! :)
*I love this app sooo much but do have some recommendations
*I have been a big fan of all the updates except one— the unlimited pro part
*I bought this app when it was $6 (unsure if it is free now) because not only had I heard such great things, liked the result and found that the free apps that were on the market weren’t as good
*Putting the money into the app I was fine with but once some new options popped up that I was interested in using but were locked because they wanted a subscription seemed a little much to me
*The app is absolutely worth getting it’s just the subscription part that I’m not a fan of but if you’re on the fence definitely go for it
*I struggle with anxiety and depression and try to use this app to remind myself of the good even if it is just for one second in a day
*this has truly been such a great product
Is this going to be iPad compatible anytime soon ??
I lost everything 1/5
By Savanna Bananas 23
I have been using this app since January 1st in order to create a cute digital memory book of 2019. I have been super good about remembering to record at least 1 second everyday! I recently switched from an iPhone 7 to an iPhone XS Max and when I re-downloaded the app and logged in — it was to my surprise that the “free” version of the app only allows iCloud to backup 5 snippets. So now I am stuck with my memories from January 1st-5th and I LOST EVERYTHING ELSE. I refuse to pay for an app like this. I’m extremely disappointed that the developers are this greedy. I don’t understand the logic behind only allowing 5 of MY PERSONAL videos to backup???? You’re seriously going to make me pay for what IS MINE?!?!!?!
I just hope no one else makes the mistake I did by downloading an app that will scam you out of your own memories & videos
Amazing app 5/5
I got this app around new years so I could write about my year and watch 2019 go by this upcoming December. I love it. Using the landscape mode was quite difficult, but now that they changed it to portrait orientation, it helped so much. I enjoy writing about my day and going back to see what went on a few months ago. This was the best app I think I’ve downloaded in a while and i will totally keep using it for a while! Keep up the good work, and I can’t wait to see future updates!
Clips gone 2/5
While backing up and restoring 30clips to my new phone 76 others were deleted. I had a total of 108 and backed up and restored 30 of the latest ones and when I tried to to the second 30 the 76 that weren’t backed up were gone. The app needs to fix it so you can back all up without having to pay monthly. It’s bs
Great app!! 5/5
Love this app! My suggestion though is to add a volume slider as an edit after you pick your snippet since I often forget and then it's time consuming to try to choose the snippet over again just to adjust the volume. Thank you!
New update kept me as a customer 5/5
The fact that you can use the phone in portrait mode means the app just got so much for useful for me. I love filling out the journal at the end of the day.
A few suggestions:
Add a “on this day” feature to look back on snippets and journal entries from this day in previous years. Sorry if this exists. I’m not there yet.
Allow me to add a prompt in the journal after writing some. I like to do my day recap and then think a prompt would be nice. Maybe in future versions you could even let us customize the journal section into more than one field. So I could have “What happened today”, “what made you happy” or whatever other question I want to answer each day (including an option to have a field for random prompts).
Keep up the great work!
Always been Great! 5/5
I’ve used this app for some time and have loved watching our kids grow and reliving all the memories. I haven’t experienced any real issues and continue to love it as much today as always. The only thing on my wish list is support for the iPad.
So Fun! 5/5
My MIL Loves This! 5/5
I put together a Freestyle compilation video for my family’s vacation in November 2018. Super excited to do this. Everyone sent me videos/photos for the special “Vacation Memories Video.” It took some time to put together with the incompatibility of Android and Apple but with WhatsApp’s help it was a success!
I didn’t send it right away so when my Mother-In-Law asked about it I went on ahead and sent it to everyone. She was thrilled! Kept watching it over and over again. The she designated me as the Vacation Memory Videographer 😆. Can’t express how much I still enjoy this app after over a year now! ❤️
One of the few apps I use EVERY DAY!!! 5/5
Wow. Great is all i can say
Love this app 4/5
This is an incredible app. One thing I would like to see in the next update is, when mashing a video, choosing custom dates; not just a start and end date, but choosing day by day which snippets to include in a finished video. Otherwise, the app is awesome.
needs a feature to edit previous snippets 4/5
i really like this app and it is so great to look back on old memories, but we should be able to edit old snippets. there’s no way to edit one, it’s either replace or share. if i wanted to turn a previous vertical video and make it horizontal or vice versa. while i can do this when i’ve just created my snippet, i cannot go back and edit it which is annoying. this app is really great, but i do believe that we should be able to edit previous snippets.
Thank You 5/5
I heard about this app through a TED talk. I downloaded it and never looked back. I love the “reminders” set as helpful quotes.
The Best App Ever!!! 5/5
I’ve had this app all of 2018, and now half of 2019 and it’s so awesome and easy to use!!! I’ve recommended it to so many people who now love it also! It’s such a fun way to capture your year’s memories through small little videos! Also, I had the app before the update and I love how the people behind it are continuing to improve the app and keep making it incredible! Such a great app and would definitely recommend!!!
Spam push notifications 3/5
App concept is good but don’t send me “fun facts” in push notifications. That’s an easy way to get me to turn them off.
No vertical option 1/5
By SummerBummer NoFunner
Get with the times guys.
Good app except for log-in issues 2/5
Apparently every time you sign-out you have to create a whole new account before you can sign back in. This erases your previous videos off the app.
Not anymore 1/5
Liked it when i got it. Sucked it up & decided to pay monthly for it. They added this new subscription, so now I can’t edit or trim my videos. what’s the point then? I cancelled my monthly payment and have stopped using the app. I’m not paying $30+ for an app.
My philosophy students love this app 5/5
Discovered via the TED talk, this app turned out to be a great vehicle for my philosophy class to think about the nature of time and authentic being. We used the app for a month and watched our mashups together. Even though school ends soon, many plan to keep going! Love it.
What the heck 1/5
The music on this app for the mashing options is awful. All remind me of a cartoon for elementary kids to learn their ABC’s. Need “My Music” to actually be completed. Thanks
The new update is horrible. Most free features are now paid. 2/5
Just a money maker now, many free features were taken away. Uninstall, found a better app. Sad. Great way to ruin a good app.
Taking away features 1/5
Can’t choose 1.5 seconds anymore or 2 vids in 1 day!!!!! Stop taking away the features I ALREADY PAID FOR
Almost in love with this app 4/5
I love this app, it is adorable and so much fun to put videos together. I keep getting a little disappointed with each update still not allowing for us to input our own music, and I know it says they’re working on it so I’ll just try and be a little more patient. After that gets added this app will be pretty much perfect for me.
Terrible update 1/5
Before i was able to hit the camera and it would automatically take a video and save the video to one second and my phone. Now I have to go through all these steps to take a video and to save it to my phone. When I take videos of my children I dont have the extra time to press this and press that. I want to take my video clip it and turn my phone off. Do not like the new update.
Great way to help remember all the little moments!👍 5/5
Too bad 1/5
I was really excited about this app. I downloaded it on the recommendation of a friend who has had it for years and paid $5 or so, but the now $30/year (or $3.99/month) subscription to access seemingly necessary features is unreal. You’re out-pricing your market. I understand a cost and even a subscription, but, come on, at least make it reasonable if you want to continue to draw in consumers.
Bring back landscape and editing bar 2/5
By tiger paws
I used to love this app so, but the new update diminishes the experience. I have smaller phone and the vertical orientation makes it frustrating to use. It crops the videos when your previewing, and you don’t have the same editing capabilities. Dissapointing.
Brilliant and well thought out app 5/5
By Rumi Amaru
I was recommended this app by other young parents as a way of capturing how our babies change over time— 1SE has been fantastic! Absolutely love it! Easy to use, great interface, and thoughtful purpose behind it. Highly recommend it!
Bring back Landscape orientation 2/5
Please bring back the landscape orientation, this new update since March makes me not want to use this app anymore. I tell everyone about this app and I’m very, very disappointed in this current version.....
Please add music feature! 3/5
Loving the app but don’t like the music selections. Would be perfect if you could choose actual songs from your phone or Spotify.
2 timelines?? 4/5
I started using the app on Jan. 1, 2019 and am loving it. Is it possible to do another separate one for my newborn granddaughter? I want to do one with just her in it and I’m not sure how I can have 2 different apps on my phone.
Love this app but disappointed with the update 5/5
I love this app but I have to agree with many other people when I say that the vertical mode makes it harder to use. I loved the ease of the horizontal mode. I thought when this update was made that users would be able to just turn their phones sideways and use it horizontally. I know that 1SE takes reviews seriously into consideration when it comes to future updates and I hope that this is one we will see soon. I don’t hate vertical just prefer horizontal. The option to use both within this app would be a handy feature.
