Keep a video diary Why

In just a few steps to your own video diary

Capturing your own life on video: that is the task that the “1 Second Everyday” app takes on. And the app title says it all. For each day we only create one video with a length of one second. The idea behind it is that users can remember the best moments even years later. You can present your clips to a community, but you don't have to.
