Hate monthly charges 1/5
By grudging user
Had it on my desktop, now it won’t let me download to the new computer without paying a monthly fee. Sad it was a good app till they got money hungry.
Love but why am I paying again after I purchased this app? 4/5
By Jomar Estrella
I purchased this app for the iPad and iPhone a little over a year ago, I left iPhone for a few months and came back because I love this app so much but came back to having to pay for a subscription. Why is that? Is it because of the new server ?
Love it! 5/5
By Michael R Addams
Love putting pictures with my journaling so easily. It helps me feel like I have really savored my moments both the everyday and the extraordinary!
No longer a fan 1/5
I’ve been a user for a few years and just got cut out of the upgraded version. So much for grandfathering the early adopters. Just like cable, give all the good stuff to new users and leave the first out to dry.
No longer a fan. Looking for a new app.
Great way to journal/document 4/5
Can’t add more than 1 picture per entry which is kind of annoying. Amazing idea though since I journal on my phone anyways.
Such a great app 5/5
Works well, lets me document my day in photos and small entries. I love using it!
Really helps keep me in a healthy state of mind! 5/5
I used to journal a lot with actual pen and paper and then forgot about it for a while and I noticed that my brain was just clouded with so many thoughts and emotions. So I was perusing the App Store for something cool that could be easy to use and that I can access easily as well so that my journaling could become more of a habit. When I found Day One I was excited and very satisfied with the setup and functionality. I’m very happy with the app and it helps me immensely with clearing my mind and getting thoughts in order. It’s great to get things out so that you don’t have to dwell on them forever. Thanks for an amazing app!!
Another Price Plan Change 1/5
I would have never bought this if I would have been told the pricing/plan would change so much.
Delightful app that’s easy to use 5/5
It’s elegantly designed and feel very personal. Love it!
I Like It, but ... 4/5
Great app for journaling your thoughts and experiences as well as adding images. I like that you can create multiple journals; travelogue, personal thoughts, sports, bike routes, etc. BUT I’d like to be able to add audio and video clips.
It’s a way of life 5/5
Anyone with a thought needs a journal, but don’t restrict yourself to any material. Get a physical notebook to write your good ideas.
Day one 5/5
By Ok, games11171999
I love this Journal app! This app is so easy to use and you can Journal live pics. I’m so thankful to find this!
Great journaling app- needs support for pen/smart pen 4/5
This is probably the best journaling app. Syncs effortlessly and stores dates and times with photos well. You can also have multiple journals. What it sorely lacks is support for Apple Pencil and/or support for smart pen. If it gets that then it’ll be perfect
Easy journaling 5/5
I love this app - you can choose the photo you want to add a note to, and the app will place it on the right day in your journal.
This app is very limited and what they want you to pay for seems not to be worth it.
Like it but watch app inconsistent 4/5
Watch app slow to connect and sometimes will not at all. Other than that, love it.
1.13.18: So I followed your link and the steps to find my "Classic" version in my purchased apps. And it's no longer there. I can only assume it's because I reloaded the new version when I had no idea you removed the original (the one you call classic). Can you please give me your customer service phone number so I can actually speak to someone that can help me. I am extremely frustrated.
1.12.18: I've been using classic version for a few years and have loved it. I just went to make a new entry and discovered the app had been removed from my iPad. When I went to the App Store I had to reload it. To my surprise to log into my account they tell me I have to pay $49.99 with a $24.99 annual fee.
I'm very disappointed. No one notified me this was going to take place. To be honest I wouldn't mind paying a $25 annual fee but the initial $50 for existing long time users is not acceptable. Way to antagonize your existing customers Journal One!
Curious to hear if anyone else feels the same way!!
Best Journaling App 5/5
By gina grace soto
I downloaded this app for journaling purposes for the new year. It’s amazing! Everyday I upload a picture from my day and journal about it. It records location, time, weather, even music! It has options for fonts you can use as well. Though, my favorite thing about app is the fact that you can set reminders to journal. I knew I was gonna need the reminders, and I’m so glad they’re unique and there for me. HIGHLY recommend this app!
Attractive and Functional 4/5
I have Day One on my Mac, iPad, and iPhone. I like using with the photos I take with my phone. It easy to share a photo to the app.
What is wrong with this stupid camera 1/5
When you take a picture of your full face crops off Your chin you basically have to aim the camera halfway down your chest to get a picture of your face worthless
Best journaling app I have ever used! 5/5
I’m a YouTuber at youtube/TheRealCasadaro, mobile app developer and admin for Microsoft
I use day one everyday to write down my goals, family moments, ideas, tasks, whatever comes to mind.
I have tried all kinds of apps and this is the best one I have found. It works great on iPhone and Mac.
The only down side is their isn’t a windows or android version
App used to be great, but now it’s slow 2/5
By Umang Sharaf
It’s not just that the general UX is slow (even on an iPhone X), it’s that the experiences *feels* slow as well.
For example, getting to the Activity Feed takes two taps for some reason. Why is it necessary to have two + (Add) buttons on the home screens (one on the top and one in the bottom row)?
Opening the app takes a couple of seconds and then a few more to authenticate with Face ID.
When you want to edit an entry, it takes multiple taps to simply edit the location and change the ‘activity’ etc. And that too feels slower because bringing up the ‘extra info’ menu (with step count and more) takes a few seconds.
On that point, having two sources for places, FourSquare and Apple Maps, really complicates and duplicates the locations. For example, Apple Maps addresses have the full state name (i.e. Ohio) while FourSquare addresses have only the abbreviation (OH).
Questionable UI design for home screen???? 3/5
almost perfect app- but why does the main screen have camera and plus buttons that take up over half the screen? that option is already available in the plus button at the bottom. this design is a big flaw. it would look much nicer to view the entries stacked on top of each other that take up the screen, or at least have the option to customize the home screen layout!
Great App 4/5
Love it, journal almost every day. The only improvement I see is adding video. We’ve heard from the beginning that it was on the way. How long does it take? What video gets here my rating will immediately bump up to five stars.
Love it despite the subscription, BUT 5/5
By Kate Koposova
It’s high time the iPad version was able to process handwritten text — it would be wonderful to integrate the natural journaling by hand into our DayOne routine... Give our Apple pencils something new to do!! Thanks.
UPDATE: Also, it’s fundamental to be able to upload any kind of attachment, like in email, although I’m thinking specifically of PDFs! Please!
Great journal 5/5
By The Daytripper57
I have used this application for almost 3 years. It is great!
Subscription = NO thanks 1/5
I will not use this app because I don't believe it's safe to have such personal data on the servers of the app developers. If they bring back iCloud I will use this app again. They say the data can be better encrypted on their servers but if you google "iCloud encryption" it clearly states that the data is encrypted in transit and on the server. So, why not give us the option to use iCloud? I used iCloud sync on the previous version with no issues at all. In fact I was better able to secure my private data as it was automatically copied to my Mac and backed up with Time Machine. I couldn’t have asked for a more secure, fault tolerant way to store my private data. No thanks. I don't want to pay any more small monthly fees. Guess I'll just make a folder in the notes app and store my journals there. Too bad, this had potential to be a good app with a loyal following. For me any "subscription model" service is just a constant reminder to re-evaluate weather or not I really use a service enough to make it worth it. Usually the answer is "NO" after the first payment. I saved off my old journals to PDF files, encrypted them and stored them on iCloud. I won't be using this app again unless thy decide to bring back iCloud storage / synching.
Journaling Again 5/5
By A Writer in Maryland
I used to keep a diary as a little girl, which became a journal as I got older. Years ago, after a hand/joint issue, I found it hard to keep a pen and paper journal. But since getting Day One, I feel back at it! One great feature is the weather and temperature data. To get it, I have to open the app on my phone, start a new entry, and then close it, and then I can reopen it on my Mac and finish it up. I also love using IFTTT to make a journal entry for Instagram in my Day One. Having so many features - being able to add photos, locations, weather, temp, and more makes me love journaling again. Thank you!
Love this app again 5/5
I had stopped using it a year ago because I wanted to trying journaling on paper again. I switched back because you can do so much with this app that you cannot do on paper. I love looking back to journal entries years ago easily and quickly to see if you have made any progress on the things that you have been struggling with.
Enjoying This App Very Much 5/5
I love this app and use it every day. Very user friendly. I like that I can have several journals to keep for different areas of my life.
It's great that I can import photos to insert with my entry. Helps me remember an event visually to complement my written words.
Also happy that I can sync between my Mac and my iPad, a wonderful feature.
Well worth the price. I'm willing to pay for an app I use all the time, is simple to use and also I might add great customer service if you need it. I am a very happy customer.
Upgraded to the subscription. I think the app is great and it continually being improved and therefore I think the developers should be paid. $25 per year is not that much for something One uses every day. I can have as many journals as I want, insert lots of photos and sync between all my Apple devices.
Very nice journaling app 3/5
I like this journaling app and it has a lot of great features. Many of which i don’t need but they look nice and may serve purpose to others. I’m a pen and paper person but needed something I could put quick notes in and clippings since we get so much info from our phones these days. I dislike that you cant upload more than 1 photo without premium. That’s one of the main things I need as I’m sure they know most people do. With all these apps trying to nickel and dime people with subscriptions this is just another app I’ll have to pass on. But it is a great concept for anyone willing to pay for it.
This app does way more than I ever imagined 5/5
By Daisy Teri
I have been using this app for a few weeks and love it. There is a learning curve and the more I learn, the more I use it. There is a lot of help and instructions for learning and for questions.
I feel like I am more focused, organized and even mindful.
A big thank you for developing this app.
one photo only? 2/5
I fully understand the subscription option for some people , but changing from basic 10 photos to just one if I decided not to subscribe? that’s just not right!!! I simply don’t need “unlimited” photos or any other offers, I like the simplicity.
Subscription Surprise 3/5
Extremely disappointed - I bought the full Day One package several years ago, and had been enjoying the app throughly. Imagine my surprise and horror when I realized - via in-app notification - that all of the features if paid for were now considered "Day One Premium" and would have to be repurchased for about $30 a year. They didn't even offer the option of exporting my previous entries before they made the switch. Day One has been a mainstay of my digital life for a while now, but no more.
I love that you can lock the app 5/5
By Tatum Mychel
I wanted a journal that no one could into after my phone was unlocked!! I love that the app has a separate passcode. Perfect!!
pricey ! 2/5
Very pricey !
Love the interface 5/5
Switched from Momento. Love the desktop app as well. Can’t wait for video entries and downloading photos from social feeds which are the two features I miss most from Momento
Thank to you Day One 5/5
I’ve been using the Momento journaling app on my iPhone for years, waiting patiently for an iPad app, trying to journal, but not always being successful. The only thing keeping me on Momento was its ability to draw in feeds. Day One had blown every other app away, and it’s use of feeds far surpasses Momento, Day One brings in your feeds and allows you to choose which ones to add to your Journal. I’ve just finished transferring then years of journaling and memories and Day One has added the weather info, location info, and photos from all of my old entries. I also have Day One on my iPad, iPhone, and laptop - so I can journal anytime and anywhere with my device. Thank you Day One for making such a remarkable app.
Easy way to Journal 5/5
By The MC Girl
I love how easy it is to add photos, icons, emojis and more. I especially like how it reminds me everywhere I’ve been today & asks if I want to see or write about them. Great App
Keeping my journaling 5/5
By Customer for life
I’ve tried a dozen times or more to keep a journal for an extended length of time. Nothing has stuck. Day one makes it easy to write micro entries, add photos, events, and activities.
The Best Journalling App and the Best Suppot 4/5
This app is easily the best app for journalling around. I haven’t found anything else that is even close.
And maybe even more important is their customer service. They respond personally and they are kind and understanding.
I still don’t agree with the subscription service, but I can’t argue with the quality of this app.
HELP HELP HELP 1/5
The app is totally broken - I log on and get a white screen which is just dead and unresponsive!
Everything was create now I can barely use 5/5
Use first generation IPad Pro.
After every one to two letters typed the app lags. I can’t use anymore.
I have tried restarting I pad and closing down all other apps and nothing works.
I have the latest version.
Update I am working ok now.
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, because it so easy to use and I love the format.
Great for devotionals 5/5
By Jacquelyn Alvarado
I love the privacy setting, you can set a password which makes me feel comfortable knowing no one will see it. I love how you can edit the text and even add pictures! You can really make it our own style and it’s amazing for soo much. Love this app.
All that’s missing is apple pencil 4/5
By Anonymous JAD
Love the app. I would REALLY love it, it if could work the the Apple Pencil. That would make it perfect.
Needs apple pen use enabled 4/5
Love this app but it needs to be updated to allow for stylus use.
Fallen in love with this app! 4/5
I have this on both iOS and macOS and LOVE. IT. I’m now capturing photos and journaling regularly and already love perusing through previous entries. What I like even more is the reminder / template feature — I’ve moved my Five Minute Journal entries to this app and couldn’t be happier!
I’m in love 5/5
Since being able to create multiple journals I’ve been in and out of Day One several times a day. I use it as a way to jot down notes on how I’m feeling, what needs done, or just random other tidbits I want to hang on to. It’s a great new habit for me and I can’t see an end to it any time soon. Well worth the money.
Great App 5/5
A friend recommended this App. I’ve been using for three weeks and find it easy to use and exactly what I was looking for.
