    It's perfect for my one second a day. This is my third year doing this on this app. But since an update, not sure which one, once I put a video or photo in for a day I can't delete it and change it. I want to change some vids/photos but can't. Really annoying 🙄 please fix !! Only thing that has been wrong for the entire time I've been using it *resolved through the app's settings. Thankyou!

    Editing my review (below) to say the problem has been fixed! It is a great app and I've loved using it to record memories. Their customer service was very helpful when I had the problem mentioned below. I have been using this app for years and loved it, but now every time i try to mash my video the audio is not synced. This renders it pretty useless, and I am very disappointed, especially after taking the time to record every day for a year.

    WOW the one issue I had (that media libaries took forever to load) was quickly addressed by 1SE! Videos now load IMMEDIATELY...yay! Been using for almost 3 months now and I *love* this app. It does exactly what it says it will, while also allowing me to practice a bit of mindfulness about my day! I've recommended to a bunch of friends. I do wish the paid version was more reasonable--I would gladly pay $10 or $20 one time for the app, but $7/month seems a bit much. Nonetheless, great app!

    I had posted this a while back “I absolutely Love this app. I’ve been using the free one for a year now and have been taking videos every day. However, it seems that a lot of the features of the free app are being taken away. We no longer can do 1.5 seconds for a clip and we can now only have one video where as before we could have two for each day. I understand that the free app will need to have limitations compared to the pro, however it seems like pretty soon there’s not going to be anything left on the free app. And the jump to pro is quite big in regards to cost. I’m really bummed that the app has changed so much in literally two days as I had access to all these features Thursday.” Soon after this changes were made to the app and these features we accessible again without the pro and just he initial payment app. However, my phone just updated to the most recent iOS and with it, those few features went away, again I can only have one clip a day, no 1.5 second clips, and now I can’t even create multiple montages. Again, I understand that the free app will need to have limitations compared to the pro, however i’m really bummed that they brought these features back and then removed them again as well as a few more.

    This is a great app and it has changed the way that I live life. Its brilliant and after the complete redesign I signed up for the subscription. However when you come to mash your seconds too many times it will drop the sound from 4 to 6 snips out of 30. Yes I am adjusting the vole. Fingers crossed this gets fixed soon.

  • Horrible UI Update Oct 17, 2020

    By Cam Galla
    I’ve been using 1SE pro for almost a year an a half during which they’ve made many updates. In general, I feel the updated trend in the right direction, increasing functionality of the app improving user experience. This update however is incredibly frustrating. The app now opens to a screen that shows all your projects as cards that you need to swipe through. You then need to scroll through until you click on the on the project you want every time you open the app. This makes no sense as I typically will only be working on one project at a time. Previously, switching projects was as simple of tapping ‘My Timeline’ at the top of the screen and selecting from a drop down menu. Now, from a project page, it involves clicking in the top left of the screen and then scrolling though other projects each of which take up the full screen. This must also be done every time the app is opened. The full screen cards that show your projects give no control over the images or colors you can use. I’d much rather look at a grid of my previous week’s 1 second memories than a title page with a colored banner and the thumbnail of the first second in my project. This UI update made icons to control clip settings larger which now makes it makes it necessary to scroll in order to access clip volume control. I appreciate when 1SE is quick and functional to use without excessive scrolling and clicking. This update creates unnecessary steps.

    I’ve been using this app since it was first released in 2013. I’ve seen it grow from a super buggy beta that crashed constantly that first year, to a relatively stable and decently designed app. This latest release has some great features, like the live-photo-to-video feature and being able to crop vertical videos to fit the horizontal frame. Unfortunately, it’s gotten clunky. The save dialogue takes several seconds to save the clip, with no progress indicator. And every few seconds or so, it’ll just crash completely instead of saving. I’m a mobile app designer with hundreds of apps on my phone and none of them are anywhere near this crash-prone. I suspect building all the social sharing features (what? why?) have sapped their development resources from keeping the app running smoothly. I’m also irritated with the subscription model they’re pushing. Why would I pay a subscription for a product I only need to use once per year? I would much rather pay $20 once for a simple app that works, or $5/year at most. Plus... a lot of the “features” like brightness adjustment and removing the 1SE logo from the end of compiled videos, aren’t really features if you can just as easily edit the video in the default photos app and trim off the branding from the end of the clip. Cesar Kuriyama inspired me to start doing this in the first place and I really wanna support his app, but the payment options they’re pushing aren’t great.

    BEWARE!! This app was great if you never change your phone or update in anyway. Paid the fifty bucks so I didn't lose my pictures when I got a new phone since I lost all my pictures last time, and nope. Now I'm losing pictures daily. The fifty bucks is wasted and I've contacted them numerous times. They've "downloaded" but won't transfer back so I still have a video. If anyone finds a better app, lemme know.

  • The new update is horrible Mar 7, 2019

    By Kapteva
    I used to love this app, I used it all the time and I was telling about it absolutely everyone. With the new update I actually don’t want to use it anymore. I paid for the app $6 a coupe of years ago so I wasn’t using the free version. The change from horizontal (landscape) orientation to vertical (portrait) made it worse. It is difficult to see the snippets they are crammed. The editing portion of the screen changed - the ribbon where I pick the 1 sec sequences is not detailed and I can’t see or hear how the 1 second snippet will sound/look like. When I pick something, try to play it, it replays the whole video, not that part I chose. The ribbon is not intuitive to navigate (as it used to be) and it is hard to pick the snippets. I can’t pick custom dates to mash videos. It forces me to pick current year, everything. I used to show this app to everyone, I would pick a few custom dates and show them how it works and how great it is. I also can’t replay snippets from prior years (i didn’t save them). With this update actually I don’t enjoy it and I am going to look for a different app with a similar functionality. There is a very aggressive push to the subscription service, but I already paid for the app and actually all the best features were taken away. Find a different app. It has such a great reviews becuse of the older version, but since March 2019 it is crap.

  • Unaffected by what others are complaining about Aug 20, 2019

    By kt800200
    One of the coolest things about this app they don’t advertise is that the “Live Photo” capability of the iPhone finally comes in handy for something. Every one of those is about a second, so any photo you already have in your phone can become part of a video. It’s cool to see your day-to-day photos turned into live footage, I guess. Many of these reviews complain about a march update that took away features, which confuses me because I didn’t even notice and I’ve been a near-daily user since January. I broke my phone in April and was so bummed to lose the seconds I’d taken since then that I recently upgraded to monthly pro. If people are mad they get only one snippet a day, they can always spend the dollar a week it would cost to get more snippets or even use the freestyle capability. I do dislike the orientation of video since I rarely shoot horizontally but other than that, I enjoy this app completely and it’s one of the few I will pay for.

  • I’ve used this app everyday for almost 3 years and don’t plan on stopping Jul 21, 2020

    By Chiq711
    I heard about 1SE on a podcast in 2017 and was intrigued - I’ve always wanted to keep a journal but never had the stamina and would burn out quickly. 1SE makes a version this journaling of this possible! I also use the “freestyle” mode to document concerts, vacations, and other unique experiences. My family loves getting those video “mashes”, because they say so much more than photos of the same events would. Watching my videos reminds me of the small, everyday details too that are just as special in their own way. I got the pro subscription just recently, not necessarily because any of the additional features jumped at me, but because this product has been consistently useful, reliable, entertaining, and otherwise part of my life for a relatively long time - I’m quite proud to support this app and show it off as often as I can! That being said, my other main draw to the pro was to have unlimited backup of all my snippets - I’ve been going at this for a long enough time that I would be very sad to lose everything. My one critique is that sometimes when the app mashes long videos, on the order of the last year of snippets or so, the audio will sometimes get out of sync with the video. This is a small bug that I’m sure can be or already has been addressed (just updated my app yesterday). Keep up the good work, y’all!

    Love this concept so so much, and I think it's going to be amazing to look back on the year. I'm afraid something has gone wrong because it's now not letting me update or add new videos. It says "no media available for this day on your device" and I can't seem to connect to my photo gallery. Can anyone help?

    I can't upload any pics from photos sent to me from my wifes phone. The upload page is really slow also. On 20/2/2020 Proud to say a new update came along that fixed these two issues. Thanks for acting so promptly app team :) Still quite expensive app for what it is, but been very happy with customer service and the idea behind the app.

    Its good but I wish we could have at least a few music options without buying premium not all of them because otherwise there wouldn't be much point to buying premium but a few options would be good it would also be good if you could film on the app rather then having to film on normal camera first but other then that its a very good easy to get the hang of app and a great way to remember your experiences

    So far I've only used it for 10 days. My experience so far has been positive. Not experienced any ads or annoying glitches, I just hope when I get to the end of the month and I want to mash my clips together it goes smoothly. One thing I will say is that this app requires a lot of memory space so I had to delete a couple of other apps to get this one to run. Wont be an issue for most but my phone doesn't have much free space so that was a little annoying but otherwise I'm enjoying using it.

  • Vertical version/latest update Mar 4, 2019

    By Loooooses
    I was really pleased with this app and its functionality, and then they had to go and “update” it. In the new version, there’s no longer an option to use the app in landscape (horizontal) mode. They went too far “fixing” the problem, that iOS users couldn’t rotate to vertical. Now it’s even crappier because you have to press about twice as many icons just to view clips and/or take them horizontally. The smart thing to do would’ve been to keep the simpler icons and just add the ability to rotate IF WANTED, not force everything to be one way or the other. It should be as easy as tapping one icon to open up the camera for recording; now users have to go through an entire process and figure out where everything is just to add snippets on the spot. It also doesn’t need the added social media component. People use this app to record seconds, and nothing else. They don’t want ads, or other people’s content, or anything else invading. The entire point of the app is to collect snippets and put them together, and share them on another platform if desired. I’ll likely stop using it if something doesn’t change.

  • Great concept, disappointing evolution Dec 31, 2018

    By CGraves89
    My sister-in-law purchased this app when it was $5 on our Apple family-share plan, and we have been using it to compile compilations, montages, or whatever 1SE has been branding their videos/slideshows as. We’ve made multiple projects featuring each of our kids, different events, etc. However, now with the most recent update and the rollout of “Pro Membership” these features that we originally paid for now are being held hostage behind their $4/month or $30/year premium membership fees. I can understand their fiscal need to offer membership usages, but revoking pre-existing features from customers who have already paid is an abhorrent practice and I will no longer be recommending this app to friends. I’m still giving the app 3-stars because it’s good at what it does and I enjoyed it before they took away the features we paid for, but they have turned their back on their original paying customers. They should have created some kind of “grandfathered-in” program rather than revoking access. Now I’ll be searching for another similar app service.

The only thing is that sometimes pics I download from like snapchat don't show up as options but I just screenshot them and then it works :) The new update has made it worse I want to love this app but now it's saying I have no pictures in my gallery which isn't untrue so I can't add anything Please fix this as I want to love the app

  • Update 3.0 wasn’t necessarily Mar 23, 2019

    By Modge Podge
    I’ve been using this app for about a year now & have really loved it, but I am really disappointed with update 3.0. The vertical screen was unnecessary, and actually makes it much more difficult to edit videos. I appreciate the push for greater integration of the journal feature (and it’s really cool that it exists), but it feels like you’re kind of shoving down our throats. I started off using leap second which I found to have a better interface & allowed me to add as many videos as I wanted per day (and they could be much longer than a second), but their app had a bug where my timeline was deleted more than once so I switched to 1SE. 1SE has been much more reliable, and I have never had a problem with it, but honestly I am strongly considering switching back after the update and push for subscription services that should really honestly have come with my $6 purchase of the app to begin with. The month by month format leap second offers is really nice & much more intuitive and easy than the side bar month scroll on 1SE, although really genuinely what you had before was much better than what you have now.

  • New Update - I want to delete the app. Mar 9, 2019

    By i want the old version!
    I used to be in love with 1SE. An amazing way to see your life one second a day! It had an amazing layout, very easy and dynamic to work with.. Unfortunately, I can’t say that anymore with the new update. The new update went vertical, which I really don’t enjoy. At all. It seems as if they are trying to cram everything into one little screen, when before everything had an amazing layout. I really don’t think I will ever get used to this new layout. One more thing, perhaps the most annoying thing, the DIFFICULTY and TIME needed to take to record a snippet of your day. Before the new update, there was a red recording button you could press right when you opened the app. Now, with the new update, it takes MUCH longer to record a snippet for that day.. What if you want to capture a moment that is only there for a second, but can’t because it takes 30 seconds to solely get to the camera??? I’m sorry, but they need to go back to the old version. The app is also glitchy. I paid $6 for the app a couple of years ago, and now I feel as if I’m getting the free version, let alone there is now a “pro” version you can pay monthly/yearly for. I’m going to be honest, I don’t enjoy using 1SE anymore. Frankly, not sure if I even will.

    I used to really love this app but I don't enjoy the update at all. The UI looks and feels worse. Navigating has become challenging and accessing my photos and other galleries has slowed down to an unusable point. I went back to the old version and resisted for as long as possible but now that is completely unusable. Just managing the idea on desktop software now. Hopefully there's an alternative out there as I really enjoyed this, but the price point is too high and the product now too bloated.

  • change it back please! Mar 3, 2019

    By lindsnova
    I never write reviews for literally anything so that just shows how bad this update really is. The app used to be so easy to use but with this new vertical version it is so difficult to even add the content for the day. It’s less visually attractive and I feel as though it was definitely more user friendly the way it used to be, horizontally. To me the social media layout with a profile and a feed does nothing for me and is pretty useless. I’m not interested in seeing the feed that is presented within the app. I bought this app so I can work on my in app projects and that’s it. I used to love this app but this update has kinda taken the joy of adding a new second everyday because it is so difficult to use. This app means a lot to me, as well as the projects I make on this application. I think many users, including myself, would rather have the former, more accessible version.

I exited out of the app after I saved everything and didn’t use it for three days. When I went back to the app, all of the videos I spent so long on had vanished and it made me create a whole new account without even giving me the option of signing in. At first I didn’t panic because i thought that just might have been their version of a login page. I typed in the same email I used originally and submitted it. It accepted my email, but instead of signing me in it created a whole new account. This resulted in me losing months worth of editing (the editing took me a very long time because I got the app a month after when I wanted the timeline to start so I had a lot of catching up to do). I’m beyond upset that I wasted money on this awful app!
