1 Second Everyday – Small Moments; Big Memories

Are you looking for new ways to cherish your memories in the new year? One of my favorite ways to do this is through an app, 1 Second Everyday. Download the app to your smartphone and receive 1 daily notification to capture a memory. You can add a photo or a video clip. (I love using live photos in my 1SE videos)  At the end of each month and year, 1 Second Everyday compiles all of the images and videos you have taken and creates a video so you can see them all.

 Why Download?

I love this app because it encourages me to take photos and videos of small moments I may not have considered. With only one daily notification, the app provides a reminder but doesn’t overwhelm my phone with alerts. (and you can turn it off)  This app allows users to capture small moments and compile them into one big overview of the whole year. I often find myself sharing this compilation with family and friends at the end of the year. Want to create an account for yourself? Start now so that you will have an entire year’s worth of memories to look back on. 

But you can also use it to make a variety of videos. In 2023, besides the monthly video montages, I also made videos of our trips, weekly Rotary meetings, the pumpkin patch, and back-to-school just to name a few. 


Another benefit of the app is that it “makes” you look at your camera roll daily. I use my Ollie app first to find my “keep” photos for the day and delete the rest so that I have fewer choices when I make my video. 

 Free vs. Pro

1 Second Everyday is free for users to download and allows for the creation of a free account. Here is a breakdown of the pricing for the 1 Second Everyday Pro plan and the different features that come with both. 

1SE Free Version:

  • Record 1 second every day
  • Export and share video in SD quality
  • 1 journal project

1 second everyday

1SE Pro:

  • Record an unlimited amount of video per day
  • Advanced editing features
  • Unlimited projects and seconds
  • 1SE Cloud Backup
  • No Ads
  • Storage optimization: app and videos take up less space on your phone. 
  • Export and share video in HD quality


  • 12 months: $49.99/year, equals $4.16 per month
  • 1 month: $9.99/Month
  • Lifetime: $249.99
  • 7-day free trial

Which Version is Better?

I currently use the 1SE Pro version because I enjoy being able to create multiple different projects. This feature allows users to create smaller separate projects for different occasions. Along with various projects, I enjoy being able to add multi-second clips from my day. This allows me to capture multiple events or moments, not just one.  The free version is still a great option for people looking to test the app’s usability. The free option still allows users to create a calendar project where they can record 1 second each day. 

When my videos are done, I may share them with family and friends but I then upload them into Projector so that our family can watch our own mini-movies on the big screen. 

If you are looking to capture a variety of memories in 2024, I would highly recommend 1 Second Everyday
