"For over 5 years, I've been recording 1 second every day, so I'll never forget another day ever again. This project has had such a positive impact on my life. This lead to the development of 1 Second Everyday; which makes it easy for anyone to do this too. Being able to relive every single day has provided me with a treasured perspective on life. 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."

1 Second Everyday: Video Diary App Tips & Tricks

1 Second Everyday: Video Diary Reviews


Unexpected Benefit  Cavalierly  5 star

I love this app and believe it it not it has actually had a great effect on my daily life. I’m physically disabled so just leaving the house has been difficult. Recording a better daily second has encouraged me to get out and enjoy!


Update  Scorpio94  3 star

I’m having trouble since the most recent update. I used to record holding the phone horizontally but now when I do that it messes up the format of the video and it turns out sideways. So now I need to record with my phone upright but the video is cut off with thick black bars.


Extremely Overpriced  avaa126  1 star

I despised this app, it was not good. It is so not worth the price. I got an app that is the same concept but better and it was free, please do not waste your money on this app.


Please update  Kaitalons  4 star

I love this app and have been using it for almost a year. I really enjoy looking back on my month! I just hate that every clip gets cut off at the top ever so slightly, but it would be a lot nicer if the clip I choose is the clip I get. Love this app, but please change this


I take more videos now  cme2413  5 star

Love love love. This is my life! All the good, all the hard, and all the monotonous days. I can remember each one of these moments and can visit my memories anytime I want.

Cropping portrait videos for uniform aspect ratio.  Noah M Leggett  5 star

I'd love the ability to crop down portrait video into landscape. I (and I'm sure many others) shoot videos daily for Insta and Snapchat and would love to reuse those for the second a day videos. Just an idea, everything else is solid!


Great  Adlondon  5 star

Really no complaints. I don't use Snapchat or instagram so this has been a great way to look back and remember what I did.


Love the fragments saved  weirdestme  4 star

This apps reminder are what I live about it it helps me stay on top of takin a moment to document my day and in the past two years it's been really cool to see small things I didn't even remember doing


Lack of Clarity  MSC531  2 star

Love the idea of this app, however the execution needs some serious work. The process of recording, editing and then saving your daily "second" is not very well explained and is needlessly confusing. Also, I could have sworn the new Freestyle section said there would be no limit to recording length, yet it keeps restricting my videos. I attempted to watch the tutorial videos and they are beyond useless. Two stars for the concept, however, interface needs intuitive redesign.

I <3 it it is so cool

Really Cool  I <3 it it is so cool  5 star

I just got the app and I already love it. It's worth every penny. I was able to insert Live Photos and videos that I took in the past into previous days from which I did not own the app which I thought was super cool. The idea of this app is amazing and I would 10/10 recommend to everyone.

Eric Hendrix

Journaling of the Future  Eric Hendrix  5 star

After about three weeks, I'm totally in the habit of shooting my 1-Second snippet every day, and I'm up to fifty days now! The app makes such an amazing tribute to something interesting historically in my life, and is easier than journaling (and way less boring). I can shoot an on-the-spot video clip, pull a video clip in from my library, and even use a "live photo" as video, or just drop-in a still photo if I want. I've caught some hysterical snippets that I've turned into looping GIFs for social media, in-app. I can't wait to see where 1-Second Everyday goes from here, and I can't wait to watch how my life unfolded historically, several months from now!


Obsessed  Forchek  5 star

I love this app! It makes me so happy!


owner  RWHfdha  5 star

had a glitch but customer support was great in helping me work through a solution --- the couple back-and-forths were signed from one of the co-founders of 1SE !


great!  ilyrae  5 star

i love the app, but i wish we had the ability to make an account or something. that way, if we get a new phone or whatever, we can restore all of the videos we already had.

Mama with a camera

Pictures with purpose  Mama with a camera  5 star

Best app ever! It's so great to have a way to "watch" all of the pictures we take. We're in our second year and love watching the videos - great memories!


Too much self promotion  iampeas  3 star

For the last 7 months I've enjoyed using the app daily, but I'm left frustrated by two things: That there isn't an option to (choose or) take way the date watermark, and that the last second of every video is app-promotion. It's not a super versatile app to begin with, but to pay $4.99 for them to add a slide of their own is dumpy


Great- but missing some desired features  1laurla  4 star

I really enjoy this app. I especially appreciate the freestyle versus timeline mode! I didn't give the app five stars because I wish that the freestyle mode allowed you to use pictures, or that the timeline mode allowed you to include more than one video per day. This would be especially helpful, for instance, for making a video for a specific event or theme. Overall, a very worthwhile purchase and I highly recommend.


Perfect for capturing a glimpse of your life  [email protected]  5 star

The app is easy to use and captures those little moments of your day, making it uniquely yours.

Love recording my seconds!  the girl w/ the hair  4 star

I really love 1SE everyday, but after switching to iPhone from an android device I was really surprised that you couldn't rotate clips. That's such a helpful feature that would be great to have in the iOS app too!
