I have struggled over the Years to find a journal app I would use. This one works for me.
I looked at every journaling app out there, determined to avoid this one because I absolutely hate subscriptions. Eventually, I gave in reluctantly because Day One was the only journaling app that supported the use of the Apple Pencil, albeit in a limited way. I am so glad I gave this app a chance! I am journaling effortlessly from my phone throughout the day. It is so easy to keep up with photos, videos, etc. I have even created a separate journal for my instrument practice, where I log daily practice, but also keep notes of my lessons, including inserting audio and video files made by my teacher. This app is great!
I gave day one a five star review because it helps me think in the morning and get my senses up. It also helps me with self motivation as in, I can go to one of the daily prompts and see what I wrote so I can think about that instead of something that’s on my mind. I know this review makes little sense but that’s why I gave it a five star review.
This is the best journal I’ve ever had. It way better than writing it out. Absolutely amazing.
I love DayOne - it organizes things in a way I find intuitive and provides reasonable tools for writing and editing. Their customer-service has been very responsive and answered my question quickly. However, it fails at cross-platform use - entries that have been edited on iOS cannot be edited subsequently on Android. This is a big deal for me, as my always-with-me device is an Android phone. They don’t seem to have given much priority to making DayOne truly cross-platform.
To require a passcode to access my deepest darkest digital secrets. And it completely failed when she decided to snoop on my phone, allowing her to nonchalantly access every skanky skeleton in my digital closet. Thanks. A. Lot.
It would be great if journal metadata could be printed. Or if we had the option included when exporting journals in PDF. Update 2/11/20: customer support rocks!! Fast response when using chat. Update 5/6/20: After years of waiting "Calendar Day View" is finally here. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Absolutely love this app. I recently decided to start journaling, so I downloaded the first journal app on the App Store. Which was this app. I absolutely love it, the only problem is the bugs. The app is very laggy, and not very responsive. There’s is some kind of delay when you click things within the app. Please fix. I know there are multiple journal apps out there. Please don’t make me have to switch. Thanks.
If I use the passcode option, it closes when I click the icon to enter post. Works with passcode feature turned off, but with passcode turned on I cannot use this app. I log in, hit the edit icon and it closes. Tried multiple times, reinstalled, but no go.
I keep getting pop ups asking for ratings and feedback. Please stop disrupting me when I’m trying to journal.
