  • RIP Day One

    By jClabo
    Day One Classic was amazing. This app just won’t make it in the long run. Way too expensive for what it does.
  • Update: Only one annoying quality

    By TSmithWrites
    Edit: They updated this and I added back a star- now this app is perfect! Thank you!! I love everything about this app, except one thing: every time I’m typing I accidentally hit one of the many tiny buttons right above the keyboard. I love that all of those buttons are available, but they are way too close to the letters for a journal app where typing is such a huge component. Those buttons should be at the top of the screen or you should have to double click them to select them, anything that keeps users from having to constantly stop typing to close out of the camera or close out of it trying to tag my location when they try to type the letters ‘t’ or ‘e’.
  • Conflicted... great app, but poor value

    By AlchemicKnowledge
    first off let me say that i do like the app. the addition of the voice recorder is what i love most (and the picture import feature). i dont like typing much so voice dictation is great. because i don’t use it every day and only have 2 journals i don’t feel i’m getting enough value. I pay $35.year but don’t feel i use it enough to justify that kinda of fee. I wish there was a smaller tier. my wife and I will be canceling our two accounts when it expires unless there is another plan
  • Good

    By Rainbow Unicorn Kitty
    Can be annoying but only when you leave on notifications. overall you can jot down memory’s, Tell it about your hole day,write stories, and even Take a pic for your journal. (P.S. It’s also good for controlling emotions, letting out bottled up feelings, and calming down.)
  • Please allow iCloud/Dropbox syncing

    I am coming over from Day One classic and really miss this. I can’t see myself paying he subscription fee or the one-time upgrade for classic users unless I can sync outside of Day One.
  • I’m falling in love, but there’s just one thing.

    By Sjmcclellan618
    This app is truly astounding. I’ve been searching for a journal that I can really pour myself into but that also has the high caliber features that this has. One small thing though - can it be made to be compatible with Spotify? I don’t use Apple Music in any capacity but music is extremely important to me, especially when I journal. Having the ability to link songs on Spotify would be extremely meaningful. Please!!
  • Well-planned and organized, but I miss the previous editor

    By Benthinkin
    Day One’s support is an unsung feature. During the upgrade to v3, my iPad said that my paid premium account was actually basic. Minutes later their team reached out to me via their in-app chat system. After a brief exchange, they resolved the problem without a fuss. I’ll chalk the issue up to a transition bug, and the help up to good customer service. Having said that, as a writer I miss the previous version’s Markdown support. I also miss having a snappy editor that supports hyperlinks. The ability to edit without clicking “edit” is a convenience I’d trade for v2.7’s responsiveness.
  • Love this app

    By Mel1ta7
    This app keeps my life organized. I use t almost everyday. It is been fantastic. The only thing I do not like is that the taking a photo in app used to be easier to use prior to an upgrade. Now you can only snap a picture but you can’t zoom in now. It is a little clunky to have to take a photo in the phone camera and then transfer it to the day one app if you need to zoom in on something. You used to be able do this all in the day one app itself. I’ve used this for the past 3 years at least. I also have it for my Mac computer and love that they sync.
  • Bad UI

    By JohnDoeSan
    20180917: UI is still bad. I have been using Day One for many years, and it seems that their UI just keeps getting worse. Adding tags is such an annoying process now. The only good thing that has came out of all the updates is multiple photos in an entry, everything else has been steadying going downhill. Reviewed sometime in 2017: It seems like every time they update the app the UI gets worse. Adding photos is problematic. If you recently add a photo to your phone, and the photo was taken in, say, 2014, good luck finding it from Day One. For some reason even though you can see that photo down near the bottom in the Photos App (because you just added it), you will have to scroll all the way back to 2014 if you're trying to find and use that photo in Day One.
  • Very Buggy after update

    By Vince1658
    It is very buggy after the recent update! Please fix it or reverse it to the previous (better) version!
