The Film of your Journey.
Imagine a movie that includes every day of the rest of your life…
FEATURED by Apple, Fast Company, TED, CNN, BBC, & countless more!
For over 3 years now, I've been recording 1 second every day, so I'll never forget another day ever again. This project has had such a profoundly positive impact on my life, that I've passionately developed an App that will make it extraordinarily easy for anyone to do this too.
Reliving every single day of my life at age 30 in 6 minutes has provided me with a treasured perspective on life. It holds me accountable for making each day count.
When I turn 40, I'll have a 1 hour compilation that encapsulates 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.
A minimalist diary.
+ The App accesses any videos currently in your camera roll & sorts them by date. You can also record your moment directly from the App.
+ Setup friendly reminders so you never forget a day!
+ Keep multiple timelines! You could have one for yourself… for each of your kids… your dinner… what you wear every day… etc! Looking forward to endless creative interpretations!
+ 1SE Crowds! Submit a second from your life to videos made up from hundreds of us... Let's view everyday life from countless of perspectives!
+ Super Seconds! It gives you an extra 50% more time when you need it!
+ Chosen seconds back up with the app in iCloud (if you back up your phone with iCloud)
+ Compile any given amount of time desired—the last month, year, or just select a start and end date.
+ Once you've selected a day's second, you can remove the original video from your camera roll. The App copies the second and keeps it within the App itself.
+ Your seconds are privately held on your phone. You never have to share this with anyone if you don't want to. The primary purpose of this App is to help you remember your own life. Sharing is optional.
What's New in Version 1.89
- New Feature! FLUX!
We know your phone will occasionally confuse when a video file was created and when the moment it captured actually happened. For such emergencies, FLUX let's you use any video on your camera roll! It makes Time Travel possible :)
- Reminders are fixes for those who were never prompted to allow push notifications
- the App now rotates 180 when upside down.
- fixed bug that prevented some calendars from scrolling past a certain point even though snippets were selected beyond it.
- some fixes for iOS7 users.
- a prompt comes up when there isn't enough memory to move your compilation to the camera roll
- lots of other little things most didn't notice.
We have never included a "please rate this app" prompt like most other apps because we don't want to bother you, but if things are going well we sure would appreciate a review. If you experience a bug, there's usually an answer in the forums found in the app settings, or please post it in announcements to make us aware of it. More coming soon, Thank You!!
Awesome app, BUT...
In a future update, would it be possible to make it so the date stamp is uniform on each day? On days where my video is not the exact aspect ratio, the app does a fine job of resizing them...but then resizes the date stamp at the same ratio. Is this something as simple as the app not waiting to put the date stamp on the video until after the aspect ratio has been corrected? Is that easy to fix?
Apart from that admittedly minor gripe, this app works great and this project is wonderful. It's helping me to see that my life isn't really as boring as I think it is. :-) Thanks!
I love this app and this entire video project in general. The fact that it is only one second a day makes it really easy to keep up with and really allows me to keep a memory of my life. The app's interference is very intuitive. Love that they just enabled the feature to use videos from a different day (because sometimes the videos I take need editing, which I don't realize until the next day). And always remember, horizontal video is your friend!
I'm giving them a good review for not printing me with a pop up to write said review. classy move!
I really do enjoy this app. found it kind of confusing to use in the beginning but now it flows. I'm behind the whole idea & the fact that they found a way to make it easy to do is awesome. I'm not one of those people always on my phone, so I like that it's a reminder to capture moments in my life, even if it's just for a second! great work, team.
