• Along with the new vertical interface, we’ve re-designed the mashing screen with all of your mashing options right at your fingertips.

1 Second Everyday: Video Diary Reviews


Always been Great!  ggggggill  5 star

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!  Cyndelou  5 star

Really enjoying


My MIL Loves This!  DeMoonSta310  5 star

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!!!  eightyanthony  5 star

Wow. Great is all i can say


Going back to old version  zeus423  1 star

I am going back to version 1.98 that I had backed up on my computer. I'll take it with bugs and all! The new vertical format is stupid for this app. How about restoring a horizontal option? I used to rave about this app and show it to everyone I work with. Now I can't stand it thanks to the horrible update.


Love this app  Lauren0130  4 star

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  fiona12348  4 star

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  Wutie  5 star

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!!!  BellTailor  5 star

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  Dave74724  3 star

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.


Used to be fab, but now...  LillithT  2 star

Been using this app for a long time now. It’s seems that it’s getting a bit big for its boots now though. New portrait design means you can’t see as much of your video as you edit. Plus, they’ve done that whole ‘pay per month’ thing. Nothing is free, but I’m not going to pay every month to get rid of branding. Back up can be on your own phone so you aren’t paying for anything other than the logo removal. Sneaky. It used to be good, now it’s greedy.


Totally unusable now.  Kooka321  1 star

This used to be an amazing app. User friendly, efficient, and easy to see and adjust the snippet that you wanted to keep but now it is awkward and impossible to preview in the moment. Why change things to make it so much worse. I don’t even want to use this app any more. Super disappointed.


Awesome app! 👏🏻  😜😎🤩maddie  5 star

Love going back and seeing all those old memories!!!!!!😀😆


Memory maker  Eszt78  5 star

Great tool to capture daily memories

Trevor Page

Bring back Landscape  Trevor Page  2 star

I’ve been using the App for a while, and really enjoy it. Extremely disappointed you’ve gone away from the Landscape option. As the photos/videos I load are landscape, and the resulting video output is landscape I really can’t understand why you’ve forced everyone into a portrait application. Can you at least give us an option, if the phone is upright the application is in portrait mode. Turn the phone sideways and it reverts back to the old landscape mode. If you do that, I can guarantee I’ll only ever use in it Landscape mode!


Please bring back the mood rather (emoji) feature  bec_jr  4 star

Hi there, I love 1SE and use it daily. My therapist recommended it to me as a digital diary and It’s been a really useful tool in my working on and keeping track on my mood. Although with the new update, all my data that I’d logged using the emoji mood rater feature is all gone thanks to the new update. Please please bring back that option again! It was so helpful, and now I have to start monitoring my mood from scratch again because of this new update. Which if I’m being honest, is really not the best. I much prefer the landscape layout option as it was easier to work with than the new portrait only layout.


New update  ggeorgiaaaaaa  4 star

Really good app but dislike the new update it is very confusing and makes it harder to film/add stuff otherwise a good app but dislike the new update :/


Portrait mode  edwardhuynh  5 star



Vertical view 🙌🏼  geepeeb  5 star

The new vertical look makes this app so much easier to use one-handed, and type out journal entries without having to use the landscape keyboard. Nice work 1SE team!


Vertical interface is terrible!  kellye!  1 star

I absolutely loved this app but after the new update, it’s trickier to use. I get that some people might like the vertical interface but there needs to be the option. It has also made it really difficult to see what second you have chosen as it doesn’t replay it. I have used this app every day for a year and a half and never had an issue until today.


I wish they’d used the correct form of “every day”  MeghanMoser2  4 star

Everyday vs. Every Day. Bums me out that the official title of a very popular app has a typo.


Love the app, but there is a bug with latest update  Foreveryum  5 star

Hi! I love this app and have a lot of fun making these videos. Unfortunately, the latest version makes it so I can’t access my video library. When I tap Library, nothing opens. This makes the app unusable for me since I never record my video snippets from the app. Please fix!


Love it!!😁❤️  MCMIBNLESTON  5 star

1SE is awesome! You don’t need to buy anything to get the app if you don’t want to and it is very easy to edit you photos and videos! I would totally recommend it!👍🤩

Must have for parents  Rees ce  5 star

This is hands down my favorite app to document my kids’ lives. I make each kid their own OSED film for each birthday. They love it.

epically peeved

Upset  epically peeved  1 star

Was loving this app, but with the most recent update I’m pretty upset. They took the feature to select a emoji for you “mood” for the day out and I had been tracking something important with that and now it’s all gone. Prior to this you had three options different things you could record each day. A one second video, a journal entry, and a emoji to depict your “mood”. Very upset and wish I could take back the update because I will probably stop using the app now.


Don’t want to cancel my subscription  Bridgebeudywvxjufve  2 star

I was worried about downloading the update because of the vertical thing—it’s clunky (too visually busy, get the journal out of my face) but it’s manageable. But I am honestly devastated to find that we can now access Instagram through the app. I came to 1 second everyday when I took all social media off my phone (it’s truly an addiction issue for me, I will look at complete strangers pages for hours) because it allows me to still document my life and share it in a healthy way. But now I may have to delete it. If it required a login to Instagram or even opened Instagram through safari (I have Safari disabled on my phone) then I’d be fine. But instead it actually opens Instagram in the app. This app used to be a great option as an alternative to social media for someone like me. But now you’ve put me back on Instagram without even giving the option to opt out. I get that you want people to share your product but this is going to have to make me stop using your product when I don’t even want to.


New update app just crashes  FeatMarch807  3 star

I like this app, I take videos everyday for it. But about 50% of the time I try to upload a video, it just crashes. Never used to be like this


New update is awful app doesn’t work anymore  owenofthesharingan  1 star

The app was good until the recent update. I had been adding every day this year without missing one but the new update not only ruined the layout and made everything just less convenient than original, it also added terrible bugs that literally broke my app. I can’t upload a single snippet without the app crashing, ruined my 1 second a day for 2019 unfortunately because the app is no longer functional, and they haven’t done anything since this started about two weeks ago. Problem needs addressing asap


Clunky  Toomanybarts  2 star

I’m so far behind and mainly have photos. The workflow to retrospectively add snippets (photo or video) is clunky and time consuming. Wrote to support, waiting for feedback. Currently looking for alternatives.


Can’t stand the new update  AshleyJones1214  2 star

I’ve been using this app for almost two years and the new update is so frustrating. Here are the issues: 1) If I have already taken a snippet for the day, the camera won’t auto load when I open the app. I need that for fleeting moments that need to be captured! I have to fumble around to get to the camera. 2) If I’m taking a shot straight above me or below, it makes a vertical video. I have to reshoot like five times before I can get it horizontal. I actually don’t want any verticals because they don’t esthetically blend together in the final video. 3) when I want to watch my current project, it always begins on January 1, when it began on October 7. Super annoying.


Excellent!  Kittykat19912  5 star

Great app! Good for looking back over memories.


Best app ever  Jammers360  5 star

Requires discipline - but so worth it. Wish I started years ago


Would be five but for storage issue!!  SiveJB  3 star

I love this app, except for the fact that it takes up so much space on my phone (2.8gb currently!). I delete the snippets from my camera roll, and every time I do a mashup I back it up and then delete. I really want to finish my 2016 video but I have had to delete so many apps to keep 1SE and it's very frustrating!


Good and bad  Hegano  3 star

This app creates fantastic videos and I've used it for some important family occasions recently which has been wonderful. However I am deleting the app from my phone because it has obliterated the storage and I had to delete all my photos (and even some apps) just to film a 50 second video.


Great fun!  r65g675yh76786  3 star

It's great for putting to heather the videos but it's takes up too much room on my phone.


Brilliant app  M0o0ch  5 star

Use this app when I turned 24-25. Made a great video. Also have a problem with depression and this app really helps. Keeps u focused on a second, helps u be creative and gives you a reason to do stuff each day. Helped so much I started doing again. Thank you for all the help.


Good app  Eeeeemily.....  4 star

Please fix a bit since it doesn't work when I try to put the clips together. Apart from that it's a great app


I cannot open it  Mamama2012  1 star

So bad, I just downloaded and it doesn't work.


Needs update  Jahcrricbdfdx  2 star

Doesn't work when putting all videos together


Fantastic app, innovative and fun!  nl_84  5 star

This app is great. It's a lot of fun capturing snippets of your videos, and the end result can be amazing. Download it, give it a shot, I'm sure you'll enjoy it too!
