  • Pretty good, but getting anxious

    By trevordmiller
    I’ve been a dedicated Day One user for years. I feel it is still one of the best Journaling tools. But lately there have been a lot of syncing problems and some of my data has been lost between the Mac app and iPhone. I’ve lost some trust using Day One. I’ve also been waiting a long time for native video and haven’t seen any updates. I really need native video so I don’t have to host my journal videos with other tools.
  • A sad goodbye

    By Swimmer-Bear
    I have used this app for almost 4 year. Now, must say a sad goodbye. Due to loosing all of my data due to a major crash as iCloud/Dropbox no longer there, I have no data. I can no longer justify using this product. I am not spending $24.99 a year to just backup data.
  • A lifetime app

    By Sh4n3ml
    Never really thougt that journaling was somehting I would stick to but it was something I wanted to give a shot. I tried alot of different methods, paper, electronic notes, different apps, etc. and was not able to stick with any of them and it ended up falling to the wayside. I finally came across the DayOne app about a month and a half ago, downloaded it and instantly fell in love. I think I ended up being a “free member” for all of 2 days before I decided I could see myself using this daily. Month and a half in so far and I have loved every minute of it. Its become a daily routine writing in the morning and evening, purging events that happened, adding photos, concert / movie tickets, things I want to remember etc. Look forward to using the app for even longer and being able to see my “on this day” notifications come alive, Keep up the great work!
  • Great journal

    By Evelyman
    Wonderful simple to use journal, that makes it easy to incorporate photos. Nice layout, again, simple and elegant.
  • Love it

  • Great tool

    Enjoy it
  • A request to address a potentially wonderful idea

    By Russ Tibbitts
    I sure wish this app would give me the option to have previous entries from previous years pop up each day. For example, today is July 18. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if I could (in my settings) have the app notify me, or email me my July 18 entry for last year and/or for other previous years? I know a journal can and will benefit my posterity, but what good is a journal to ME if I never read my entries again?
  • Day one

    By jennjenn1017
    I’ve been using this app for years, and it’s wonderful! I wish they would perfect he printing of the books to include the commentary with the photo it belongs to, as well as auto adjust photos so it so much wasted space. Also wish there was a desktop option! The app itself is phenomenal!
  • Fabulous, better if Apple Pencil worked

    By Kathleen808
    I’ve used Day One for a few years. It is great for capturing ideas and experiences. It would be excellent if it allowed handwriting. I’m very used to using Apple Pencil in many other apps and find it frustrating to not be able to use it with Day One. I hope you work on this. If not, I may keep looking for another journaling app.
  • Practice

    By 🇮🇹 Josie
    I am enjoying this app . The best is being able to practice using it 👏before my trip ...I definitely will end up with a book, as I will be traveling to Italy. Keeping my memories always .
