Only journal app worth buying. 5/5
I have been keepinga joumal for a long time now, not for posterity but as a pensieve for my inner monologue. I have found doing so helps organize my thoughts. This app has it all.
Pros: Multiple journals can be created. All sorts of secondary information can be added. From locations, tags, and even whatever song you had stuck in your head. Even a calendar visual for the days you have created entries. Apple watch app allows for dictated additions to today's logs.
Cons: integration with PC platforms is still limited, and the day one website does not allow for web based entries. Finally the book printing function is a good idea, but not $24.99 good.
Either way, if you want a diary or journal app, forget Office 365, because Day One has no equals.
Just the best experience 5/5
Day one has been my companion for a long time. All my most important thoughts and emotions are there. It's way more than an app for me.
Best thing for your mind 5/5
A lot of successful people do well because they are able to keep a clear head. One of the ways that they do that is to write their thoughts down. The more you can clear your head and keep a record, the more that you can focus on your priorities, and then revisit when you need a reference on good ideas or thoughts. Day One has served me well, especially since it's always at my finger tips. Definitely worth the price if you're willing to use it.
Still the best 5/5
Love Day One. Polished, solid, has the right features. Mac and iPad versions.
Too bad it's not on Android 😜
Helps me a lot 5/5
I have massive depression with psychotic features. And journaling helps me log my mood to help find triggers.
A Great Way To Keep Track Of Memories and Projects 5/5
By The Builder....
I've been using Day One before they went to the subscription model, so I was one of the few that was "grandfathered" into their free option of creating up to 10 journals. After making the decision to start writing all my thoughts and other writings in Day One instead of Evernote, I'm noticing that after a week, I'm now writing more in here than ever before!
The main catalyst for me writing about things starts with a picture. As the days progress, different moments come forth: Some expected, and many unexpected. To capture them, I simply take a picture of them. Then, later on, I write about them either on the iPhone (if out and about) or on the Mac. Thus far, I've had no syncing issues whatsoever with Day One. Everything is working as it should! Also, it's helpful to initiate their widget in the Widget screen, which allows you to see how many words you've typed on a given day via a graph.
All in all, I highly recommend this app because it's one of the few apps out there that really tends to "get out my way" when inclined to write about something. That feature is why I'm going to stick with it for the foreseeable future.
Can't say enough good about this app!!
All is well with this journaling app but the tags should be alphabetized.
I purchased this app for $5 a couple of years ago, deleted it when I was asked to pay $5 more for it which I didn't do. Decided to check into it today to find I'm expected to subscribe now to use an app I paid for which is course I won't do. Paying any company to hold my data hostage until I pay more, sorry I wont do it. I will never subscribe to ANY app, make the app better, give me useful features then maybe I would pay to upgrade. This app hasnt done that.
A great app. But needs more. 4/5
By un grand cygne
I find this to be an excellent app for journaling. It's easy to add a message or multiple messages every day. It also connects with some other apps, but I wish you could add videos and more than 10 pictures.
Love love love this app. Use it all the time and much more convenient than a paper journal.
2 years and counting... 4/5
I love this tool for writing.
Naming an entry 5/5
So far so good.
I would like to be able to name the journal entry.
So glad I found this app! 4/5
By C- Hag
I love journaling
This allows me to keep journaling at my finger tips !
Only wish this version could be blogged on to the DayOne web page like the older version
Fir over a year, the makers have been saying "it's coming later this year"... well it's later and STILL not here... please fix it !!
Great app 5/5
Love the ease of it. I wish there were options for advanced reminders for just up and coming events. Something to look forward to is my thought.
The best journal someone could have 5/5
Makes writing always easy to do and easily customizable to whatever you want to say or how you want to say it.
Lovely app but crashing nonstop 1/5
I've been using this app since 2012 with no problem. However, it recently crashes after adding a picture. Worse then that, I miss all my recent text after the crash.
Intuitive Jounal 5/5
This is a very easy to use program you use
to chronicle your life. Some times just to make a
simple one line entry. Today I starting to enter daily activities of a three week trip -
including 4 days in Yellowstone.
Documenting where we stayed, ate & visited.
So we remember the good & the not so good.
I would strongly recommend this App.
This is the only App I have felt motivated
to review - after being politely asked many
By Ennis the menace
Finally found a dairy journal that really works, after downloading a lot of crap. This one is great, intuitive and functional.
Buyer beware of many if not most of the others being offered!
Nice way to keep track and journal!
Used to Work Great 3/5
While Day One Journal is definitely a great journaling app overall, it's starting to have some very annoying problems. Now, when you want to see journal entries from a particular date via the calendar view, once you close it, the app suddenly takes you to year 2 A.D.
Hey Day One Journal team, please name one person who's been alive for 2,015 years.
Please fix this!!!
Fails to open after latest update 1/5
I love the app and use it at least once a day. But the app won't open after the most recent update. I can't find a solution on the support page. Please correct asap. This has been going on for several days.
Couldn't Be Happier -- STILL 5/5
I've been using this journaling app for over a year now, and am happy to report that, while I may not write every single day, the ease of using Day One has me in the habit of writing at least three or four times a week. Finally, it's actually fun to keep a journal and I can do it anywhere. I'm very happy with this visually appealing, simple to use, easy to read journal app. EDITED 11 months later: I chose to upgrade from Plus to Premium (unusual for me since I rarely pay more than a couple of dollars for an app) and feel it's totally worth it. Especially since I received 25% off my journal and could not be happier with the way it turned out. Great quality book and fair price.
Very large response lag when typing. 5/5
I've noticed this for a while - but there's a 5 second lag between input and having the words hit the screen on the app. Makes it hard to type---- which defeats purpose. It's almost like the app is constantly refreshing itself and it gets gummed up.
It just keeps getting better! 5/5
Love this journaling app. Seamless sync across all my devices. And I really like the daily review that captures where I've been which prompts me to capture other thoughts or ideas.
Oh boy. I was REEEEAAAAALLLLLYYY considering purchasing the Mac app the other day. I'm glad I didn't pull the trigger on that. There is absolutely no way I'm going pay a subscription to use this service. $50 a year is outrageous. I don't care if my mobile accounts are "plus" accounts. I don't care if you give me 50% off my first year. You all should be ashamed.
This app is awesome 5/5
By Racer 2011
I love the dayone app ever since the 1.0 version I started using for my dream that I can remember but now with version 2.0 I can write daily and still write about my dream in a different file, and I trust this app and it easy for me to use then the other journal app, with having autism and using this app every to write how my day went help me a lot to write my problems way. I'm giving a 5 star.
Update sept 3
I just updated this app today and I'm afraid that I have to pay a monthly sync to have sync both of my devices this the only app that I like and the app is easy and I kinda like the format but I will get use to it.
Apple Pencil Support 3/5
This app seems like it would be the answer to what I'm looking for except I can't write as I would on poem and paper.
way too expensive 2/5
I cannot deny it's the best for a plain journal but let's be serious... a 4$ subscription is to much for just saving memories a few times a month. I was too late in buying the previous version (plus) and now I am searching for alternatives
Daily Jounaling 5/5
Day One is a well-designed, highly professional journaling tool. It is simple, yet sophisticated. Can even gently nudge me each day to journal. And it's always there, on my iPhone, iPad and iMac. Can even journal from my Apple Watch when that is the easiest or only option.
Exactly what I was looking for 5/5
By rue sue
I was looking for a journaling app to take the place of a paper diary and after much consideration I decided on Day One. I have been using the app for a few months and I love it! It is very easy to add pictures and modify the location (which I love that it geotags the location and includes weather!). I was skeptical at first but this has quickly become one of my favorite apps.
Absolutely in love! 5/5
I purchased this app a year or so ago and never ended up using it. I came back to it a few months ago and I am SO happy to have it!
This journal app isn't like all the others. It's clean, intuitive, and has so many different ways you can organize your entries (journals, tags, etc.)
I like to document little life moments with my kids, my creative writing & photography, and I even document the times I take my medicine every day. It's so versatile and so worth every single penny!
Worth the subscription 5/5
I've used Day One on and off over the years, but decided to commit more to journaling when the subscription offer came up. It's been going really well so far.
I'm hoping to have enough pictures in a few months to order one of their great looking books.
good but not worth it 2/5
The rating is not for the app its self but for the whole bussines (what you pay for what you get). The free version is preety useless, of course and you have only one possibility for other features.
Remembered about the app after I was thinking to make a Journal for my baby a few days ago. It would fit my needs but it is for sure not worth 4$/month subscription. Remembered it was max a one time payment of 10$ but this is too much, especially taking into consideration that the majority of people who wants to keep a journal, will do it on a long therm. I understand the need for continuos income for improvements and new features but I think this is to much. In my opinion 1$/month would be fair or at least thats how much I would be willing to pay for, taking into consideration what I want to do with it. Is there any possibility to get the Plus account now, if I just downloaded? I am so sad I didn't download it earlier.
I am testing some alternatives now that might intereset others: Diaro seems best alternative for now (with sync), Momento (without sync) & I am waiting for Journey to launch iOS version (already has Chrome, Android and Mac version)...
good to make memories past life. and it touch me.
Needs work but best tech support 3/5
As you can tell I have some issues with this app and the money the devs are charging for premium app cost and premium yearly subscription but one thing I can say, they have the best customer and tech support in the App Store. That to me is worth ⭐️⭐️⭐️
I still wouldn't pay the yearly subscription until they iron this app out. Always issues with sync to sever and I still get those blank thumbnails blanks where my pictures should be.
Very very annoying bug with pictures showing up as small white cubes.
I've been patient with the developers for over a year now and unfortunately will leave this review with one star.
I've been using Day once they the app hit the App Store.
I have it on all my devices iPad, iPhone and MacBooks and Macs.
I am also a year paid subscribing customer.
Last few months have been painstakingly horrible with this app. It constantly crashes. Then it crashes my iPhone 6 Plus. Usually when I try to add more than 10 pictures at a time to my journal entry.
Then there's a bug that my pictures will not show up. They are instead displayed by a square thumbnail icon. I have been back and forth with all the tech support personnel and they still say they can not replicate the issue therefore can not fix it.
This is unreal. When you decide to charge a yearly paid subscription now to your already paid app, you should fix these issues asap.
You guys should seriously reconsider your priorities.
This is unacceptable.
For those who are not into self reflection 5/5
This thing can be life changing (if used consistently; and judiciously)
Slow slow slow 2/5
I used to love using this app but it has gotten so convoluted and slow. Bummer. I'll find a simpler more elegant solution elsewhere.
HOLDING YOU HOSTAGE 4/5
GREAT JOURNALING APP IN MANY RESPECTS BUT YOU CANNOT SYNC TO YOUR OTHER IOS DEVICES UNLESS YOU PAY UP. BUSH LEAGUE!
Great for journal keeping with fotos 5/5
I've used this app for over 3 years, mostly to document vacations and have been very happy with it. I tried several othrs & this is the best. Only negative is that entries can take up a lot of space on your phone. Fine for my 60gb iphone, not so good gor my 16 gb mini ipad. Since the app syncs among devices ( a good thing), I have to limit space to what mg Mini can handle. Fortunately, the app can export text & pics to pdf, which allows me to keep older journal entries on pdf while deleting them
from Day One.
I wish I could still put more than one photo in each entry. Otherwise I very much like this app and would recommend.
So good so far 5/5
Love the app. It helps remind me to keep up with writing and expressing myself day by day. And I still feel like there's so much more to discover about this app. So good so far. Thank you.
My Favorite App 5/5
I love DayOne! I use it multiple times a day. It allows me to write down my thoughts and feelings anytime, anywhere!
Wonderful Journal App 5/5
This app is an easy way to keep a journal. I like the idea that it reminds me to make an entry.
No Love for Original Users 1/5
Apparently if you've kept Day One on your device all these years then choose to upgrade, you'll be charged $35 per year. Not sure who gets the lower $25 price in the description. Relatives?
I'm sure there are alternatives out there with a straightforward upgrade path.
me gusta 4/5
Está bueno el diario , solo algo complicado a la hora de usarlo , quisiera grabar mi voz y poder poner más fotos sin tener que pagar por ello ;)
Great app 5/5
I use this application to keep my information accurate. The better part is showing my location at the time entering the information. I also attach pictures, text and email to my journal. Thank your
Great support 5/5
By No sound 456
I have used this app frequently and have over 40 years of journaling on it. Suddenly, even after numerous installs and uninstalls it just failed to work on my phone. Customer support helped me resolve the issue quickly and I'm back up and running again. This is the best journaling app on the market.
Just for me 5/5
By Joyful Hunter
Love posting my own thoughts and experiences UNFILTERED and FOR MY EYES ONLY! Looking forward to looking back on my thoughts, memories and comments.
Not payin $35 1/5
I have been doing research for the past few months on what journal to use and when I finally decided to go with Day One I was under the impression it would be a one time payment of $5 (which is a good bit for an app like this). When I saw it was going to be $35 a year I immediately deleted it. Know your audience and know that not many people will pay for that when they can get a app for much much less that essentially does the same thing.
