"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

I absolutely love this app, but every year when I mash and share there's always an error. It doesn't seem compatible with social media apps, which is where I'd like to share it most! On IG the sound gets off track despite multiple attempts to get it on track, and on FB the sound is on but the video is so grainy. I love making these videos but I wonder if there is a disconnect with android? I can't image it'd be so widely used if everyone had these issues.

This is a great app and I'm having fun working on a 365 second year long video. It has a couple issues. 1. A $50 per year subscription is an absolute ludicrous price. $1 a year subscription or $5 to own it would be about right. 2. My daughter uses the iPhone version that has friend sharing which is cool but incompatible with the android version. 3. The iPhone version has fun icon rewards for keeping a streak going that the android version doesn't have. Issues aside, download it. It's fun.

For 2 days, I've wasted so much time and battery life trying to get a 5 minute video to mash. Failed to mash, try again. I've updated, restarted, cleared data, uninstalled, and now I'm trying on Chromebook. Once it got to 22% before failing! Usually 3% is the max, so I was beyond disappointed when it got that far and failed again. Scouring the internet, your own posts have links that go to pages that no longer exist. Are too many people trying to make their yearly video at the same time??

What's new

- Speed up Mash: Speed up your video a smidge… or speed it up a lot and fit a year of seconds into just over a minute. Perfect for sharing on social!

- Every second now shows you its backup status so you know exactly what is backed up and what isn’t.

- Mashing in the background is now more reliable on Android 12 and 13 so you don’t have to babysit anything!

- When you switch to a new phone sometimes the media picker would just get stuck, but now it works all the time.
