I bought this app the day it came out, and have been documenting our lives ever since! Honestly, it’s the best thing that ever happened to our memories.
1SE is like a little reward that I give myself at the end of the day. I snap pics and/or videos during the day and then, at night before bed, reflect on things via choosing what I’ll save as my 1SE for the day. It’s a wonderful exercise and multiplied 365X over when I mash my year on Jan 1. I’ve recommended it to many friends. It’s just super!
I’ve been using this app for about 4 years now and have loved the changes they’ve been making, every little fix or step just further improved this already amazing app. I’ve done a separate video for every year and it’s been so much fun watching it grow over the course of each year and having it all saved to my account. This app is such a cool idea, I’ve seen so many awesome projects from this, but even if you’re doing it as a personal diary of sorts, it’s the best! Give it a chance and see how awesome it is to never forget what’s happening.
I live this app so much I got the pro version. My grandma who lives with me was going through chemo the first entire year I was on 1seceveryday and now some time has passed and she’s stabilized and feeling better I’m grateful I recorded the bad times as well as the good no matter how hard that was. Love this app!
I try not to spend much time on my phone or social sites, but this app is one I think about and add to every day. With young kids, it is the best way to preserve fleeting memories.
The concept of 1 second a day (1SE) which consists of 1 to 3 second “snippets” taken daily (or whenever for that matter) and then compiled into a seamless movie initially seemed pretty lame to me. But always the optimist I gave it a try. Let’s just say it changed my mind, quickly. In fact it did more then change my mind it changed the way I look at life and this is no exaggeration! Sure we all have memories and pictures and videos that allow us to see the past, but seeing them memories all mashed together into a continuous and progressive video diary is very special, in my case it has had a profound impact. I tend to take things for granted which I realize is unfortunate. However, after about 6 months of using 1SE I decided to go ahead and let this amazingly insightful app do what it does best; which is take all the photo and video snippets and mash them into one very special movie made from the media I had uploaded, so it was relevant only to the people and places important to me. That video (at the time roughly 2 minutes) was something I’ll never forget! All of my memories, all of my emotions that had become intangible thoughts, were suddenly right there in front of me being played out as if I had never lost them! It’s inevitable that good times pass and become good memories which inevitably become fleeting thoughts and lots of times become to time. But that does not have to happen anymore! And it’s not like you’re living in the past this is a tool which allows you to preserve your most precious memories and then when you choose it gives you the ability to view those memories in this very unique memory timeline. It’s truly a special and thoughtful app, I believe it’s something that everyone should try, it’s just fantastic 🙂 Note to editor: Have you guys ever considered trying to make this available to those people who suffer from conditions that affect the ability to remember? If not I really believe that you should because I honestly feel it may have the ability to help jog someone’s memory who otherwise would have no chance of recalling their memories. Just food for thought ya never know! Keep up the good work 1SE! Have a great 2020! God bless you all 🙏🏻
I love saving my memories this way. It feels great to look back on all the fun things we have done. It is especially helpful to look back on the tougher times and see they joy that what there- even then :) Thank you, thank you 1SE team!! I am so grateful for 1SE!
As a super busy mom, teacher and person who tries to live each day to the fullest, it is often so hard to not feel that everything is a complete blur. I am a past scrapbooker and avid photo taker, but where is there time for all of that? There isn’t! When I found OneSecondEveryday it was like MAGIC! I can DO this. And especially when I discovered that because of Live Photo on my iPhone, SOOO many of my still photos were already little mini video snippets!! In the three years that I’ve been storing my one seconds, my TEENAGE kids have already changed so much. In the blink of eye, but now I can play my snippets and see just how much I have to be grateful for. I see just how full my life is! Even in the ordinary and small, seemingly insignificant moments. Thank you, one second creators, from the bottom of my heart for sharing this with the world!! You’ve definitely made it a better place. :)
Caesar, your email inspired me this morning and I’m taking a minute to tell you how special this app truly is. I’ve used the app since my son was 3; He is now almost 11 and I have managed to do a video from every birthday to his next. He literally wakes up on his birthday, every year, and says mom have you finished my 1 second video? I compile the entire year for him and he loves it. Everyone loves it, it’s a family tradition and I am so grateful for the intuitive updates you’ve made each and every year. This is the kind of time capsule my son will have his entire life (well at least till he goes to college lol). I go back and watch his 3rd year of life video or his 5th year of life video all the time. Thank you for creating a tool that is literally part of the fabric of my family and will last a lifetime. If my computer dies and I loose everything, my yearly 1 second videos will live on forever. Much love and admiration from Castle Rock, Colorado.
My life is boring so I have no need to shoot video with the native camera. Almost anything I have that's animated is stop motion, screen recordings or animation I've added to a photo and those aren't recognized. Sometimes I play around with Mellow Room, still trying to figure out how to program more filters and those aren't recognized as video either. Ironically I take a lot of photos. Sometimes I open the native camera and shoot a few seconds of video of my subjects just because but my real animation would be more interesting. I don't plan to share this so it doesn't matter but I suspect other people might want to have more choices.
