Surely, you have seen a video where a person shows his growing up thanks to photographs for each year of his life. This retrospective technique can also be used to create a journal of important events in your life. Or even unimportant.

To achieve this, we need the 1 Second Everyday: Video Diary mobile app. With it, you will shoot every day for one second, and then, when you want to indulge in nostalgia, look at the past years.

How it all works

When you first start 1 Second Everyday: Video Diary, you will be asked to register and activate the paid subscription trial. Luckily, all of this can be skipped.

Then you will need to set up reminder alerts to take down the mini TikTok. Well, or you can skip this step and try not to forget to use the application yourself.

Then you will see cards that will help you get acquainted with all the features of the application. There are not so many of them. In total, you can create three types of projects:

  • Freestyle is available in a free version. Here you can add videos as required, when you think the moment is really worth it.
  • Freestyle Collab is the same, but up to six people can store videos at the same time.
  • Journal—this is where 1 Second Everyday will require you to record a video every day.

In the application itself, you can create any number of projects, but there can only be three types.

Video recording

When you receive a reminder or volunteer, you need to select a project and start recording a new video. The duration of the recording can be any, but when saving, the application will ask you to select only one second from it.

During the saving process, you can edit the video a little: rotate, reflect, change the brightness, and so on. Or choose a video from the smartphone gallery.

As a result, you get a retrospective of important events in your life.


Paid subscription starts from 500 rubles per month. In this case, you will unlock all types of projects and be able to save videos up to 10 seconds long.

Moreover, in the free version, you can save only the last year. There is no such restriction in the paid version.

I have not seen analogues of 1 Second Everyday: Video Diary, so there are no options here. If you want to create such magazines without too much hassle, try this application.

The only negative is the subscription price, which seems to me overpriced.
