The new update is horrible
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.
Here one day, gone the next
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.
Great idea, horrible UX
K.I.S.S. much? Listen, i have worked in software research and development for over 20 years in. every position from architect to engineer to product manager etc. so this is not a case of me being “non-technical“. However as much as I want to like this application I just cannot understand the workflow it makes zero sense to me I’m simply wanting to record 1+ seconds of video per day and have them mashed together so that I could then replay as hoc. I “think“ this application allows that however I’ve yet to be able to understand how to achieve this. Assuming that is the intent of this application here’s a hint bring in a UX expert and create a next GEN version of this before someone (ahem) beat you to the punch. Seriously I can’t tell which is up and which is down in this app. I *tnink* I’ve recorded some clips during my trial but who knows. Unfortunately I think this application simply out fight itself and was focused on too many bells and whistle‘s and not actual workflow. To that end I seriously doubt I will be continuing my subscription but instead will simply mimic the idea and easily create my own application which will achieve what I am wanting once again to save a small clip each day and have them smashed together so that I could play back whenever I want.
Vertical version/latest update
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.
New Update - I want to delete the app.
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.
Favorite app on my phone
I’ve done 1SE everyday for almost three years. The first year i started one year before our wedding and set it to music and got a projection screen and debuted it to my then fiancé and all our friends the night before our wedding at our rehearsal dinner. The second year i got pregnant. Now I’m almost done with the third year featuring our six month old baby! It’s such a fun thing to have, all our friends know we do it and when we hang out ask if they’ll make it in the second of the day. It’s an amazing way to look back and remember all the amazing seconds big and small that make up life. It’s kept me off instagram and enjoying life. Many friends have said they don’t have time to do it, but I don’t add a second everyday, I usually go back a month later and pick seconds. So if you already take videos most days anyway it’s super easy to go back later and do. Highly recommend!
Update 3.0 wasn’t necessarily
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.
Great concept, disappointing evolution
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.
I love it, but....
Don’t get me wrong, I love this app. I love the concept of having one clip from each day to look back on at the end of the year, and this app makes that very easy. You can simply record a clip in the app or insert your own clip and trim it. It allows for journaling and captions which is also great. The thing that bothers me about this app is that is it is a very simple concept, and when I got it it was $5.00, which seems a little much for such a thing. I got over it because it was worth the memories and the easy navigation. But now, after I have had the app for over a year, they are pushing for a Pro plan, where you have to pay more money? It threatens that you will lose all of your video clips and they won’t be backed up, and tries to push the upgrade to the Pro plan too often. It’s $30 to use basic features users of the app have been asking for for years now. It seems outrageous that they want that much so you can add music to your clips or make them longer. If I had know about this, I would’ve thought twice about getting the app.
Will never please some people. At all
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.
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 :)
I enjoy it but it definitely has drawbacks...
Firstly, I don’t regret buying this app, but the “one second” every day concept is a bit...limited now. This app allows you to increase individual snippets to 1.5 seconds, and you can choose up to two per day. However, there have been many, MANY days when I wished I could add more, slightly longer snippets. At times, I’ve even added snippets from certain days to the WRONG day just so I could have that moment in the compilation, and the inability to remove the date stamp means I’m just lying to everyone. Ultimately, I just end up wishing I had complete control. I would have paid more for the app with the promise of a limitless snippet composer, honestly. Secondly, I personally do not take issue with the location and font of the date stamp, but if I did, I would probably not use the app at all, and this review would be very very different. So please allow people more options there. Lastly, any real video editing software is effectively nonexistent. Thank you for fixing the issues with orientation etc. that you have already, but honestly why can people not put their videos to music? Why can I not add any effects whatsoever within the app itself? It’s just...disappointing. I love the idea behind this app, and the motivation of the person who created it, but...all that innovative creativity has really come to a standstill. I’d just like to see more.
Last update added a huge logo to my videos
I understand that they want to have credit for the content they produce, but the huge logo in the corner has made me not want to continue using the app. I told all of my friends who use the app to not update, and many of them saved their 2019 videos and stopped using the app on 2020 because they also do not want a video with a logo. I, and the rest of my friends, are decent enough to keep the logo that is inserted at the end of each video because it’s a great app and a concept that should be given credit where it’s due. However, $4 per month is not worth any of the other features they offer so I do not have any reason to upgrade. I really hope that this automatic logo will end so I can continue to enjoy the videos I make. In the meantime, I will be using iMovie to compile the rest of my second videos because it is just as simple and actually offers a lot more customizations. Plus, I can be sure that it will be safely backed up to my iCloud in the case that my phone breaks or is lost.
Great App, Two Drawbacks
I love this app so far! It serves as great a reminder to pause and reflect on the beautiful little moments in your life. My goal is to upload and write an entry each day in 2019. There are only two things that I wish it could do: 1) use in Portrait (upright) setting vs only in Landscape (sideways). I have small hands and never type using both hands on the full keyboard on my iPhone XS. It’s very unnatural and clunky and I end up making a lot of typos that autocorrect doesn’t seem to catch. It makes for constant editing and means it takes much longer to write a quick entry than it should. It’s frustrating. 2) I would love the ability to set a simple notification to be sent at a specific time each day to remind you to upload a picture and jot down an entry. All in all, though, still a great app. Looking forward to seeing how it all turns out at the end of the year!
So this is a little pricey but what’s the price of life definitely priceless. I love this app I love the way it works I love the way it applies itself to platform there are some tweaks that need to be done through an app but it is definitely what it says it is it is a video diary. And also let you link into your Instagram card to keep things up-to-date today this is the second highest rating I have given an app as I’ve been reviewing several self-help apps, journaling apps ,Video diaries, and motivational apps this one is definitely put together beautifully as a video diary I really wish it would team up with Fabulous and Day One I think that be the most mad awesome Calabro but that’s just my opinion. I’m not a writer is always grandma is I love video recording even talk to text so for me this pops! But all in all I love this app I can’t wait to use it with my Instagram is totally awesome and that is Ya buzz with the Bei!
