"For over 10 years, I’ve been recording 1 second every day, so I’ll never forget another day ever again. This project had such a positive impact on my day-to-day life after a few months, that I dedicated my life to making a mobile app which would make 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 turned 40, I had a 1-hour movie that encapsulated 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."

- Cesar Kuriyama, 1SE Founder

Fascinating concept. I don't like the idea of creating content for others but like the idea of chronicling my life for myself. There's no reason this couldn't be done manually. Anyway, recently, I noticed the app stopping backing up my only single project, nearing 535mb, and effectively forced me to pay for cloud backup until I finish 235/365 days and complete the year. Not sure if the policy has changed but it's a bummer if it's a bait and switch.

The Unlimited Backup was introduced recently at a lower cost than Pro to give better backup capabilities for everyone (since this will allow you to backup all your snippets and not just limited to 365). Thank you for your patience and continued support. 🙏

I just switched from iPhone to the pixel and I have to be honest, their app on IOS runs so much smoother. I would love to see 1SE kinda up their game in the performance of the app on Android OS'. I've used this app for almost two full years now and won't stop anytime soon, but I've seen myself updating the app more infrequently since switching over.

Bought this for my baby's first year of life. 1st the music started skipping after being added. Then the music worked but any voice that was in the videos was not sinking correctly with each video. I reached out to support they kept asking me if I had the correct version of the app. (I did) Upon further research, the issue is all over the internet and reddit. I paid for the premium version. What a disappointment , waste of time and money. Thoroughly disappointed. You should be ashamed.
