    I must have one of the old versions of your app, but I’m not too sure why it didn’t just update over it? but that’s beside the point. I had a lot of important notes saved in your app, but one I try to open them it doesn’t work. I can still see pictures that I had saved in your app, but whenever I try to open the notes section, it force closes the whole app. but for some reason it says that I haven’t downloaded this in the app store yet. I can clearly see the app on my phone however and can open every section except the notes. which ironically is the only section I need to get too. is there anything you can do? is there anything I can do?
  • Best journaling app

    By sandyjjr
    I used to worry about people reading my journals. It always prevented me from journaling because I was so worried about my privacy. When my dog learned to read that was the final straw ;) I knew I had to switch to Day One. In all seriousness, there isn’t a better journaling app out there. I can’t live without it. The Apple Watch support is tremendous and the “On This Day” feature is my favorite. It encourages me to journal so I can always review old posts.

    The biggest apps in their respective fields don’t work together 👎👎 Support is like over 10 days to answer a support ticket 👈 ⚠️ Edging way too close to pricing users into a monthly pay program; the last thing that a journal app should be ⚠️
  • Great app

    By Adco59
    This product has all the features and then some. Im really glad Day One has stayed in the game. Thx
  • Beautiful App. Fantastic Support!

    By OliverAbreu
    I’ve been a Day One user since before they were a subscription service, and I’ve always enjoyed this app as a journal and memory discover tool (“On This Day” feature). I recently switched over to using Day One for Android (cross platform FTW) as well as iOS, and when I found that syncing was giving me intermittent issues, I decided to reach out to Day One chat support. I was blown away by the high quality of their response time, and troubleshooting ability; they were fantastic. This is a great app and service that you should buy if you are looking for great journaling software that also has stellar support should you find yourself needing it. You won’t regret having picked Day One.
  • Keeping my thoughts...

    By 1uscalumni
    I wanted to leave a review for the developers for this app. Back in November I was recently diagnosed with stage 4 bone cancer. I was emotionally distraught and had a very difficult time dealing with this issue. A friend of mine told me that I should be writing my daily thoughts down. I wasn’t a fan of writing, but I had to clear my head each day otherwise I would never go to sleep. I googled best journal apps and Day One was at the top of the list. I downloaded the app to my iphone and it was so user friendly it took no time at all to start my first journal. I use my MacBook Pro a lot so I downloaded the app to my second device. I looked at the price for the premium version and what you get. I really enjoyed using the app and writing my thoughts down, or even using the microphone to speak my thoughts. Writing in a journal daily is a commitment. If you choose not to pay for the full version its still a great app. I have multiple Apple devices and I wanted my journals to be synced. As I write this review the app had an update. Apple Watch now has a complication for Day One. I use my Apple Watch a lot for my daily activities. Now I can just tap on the Day One complication go to journal tap the red microphone. I have a long road ahead of me and Day One is going to be my go to app to hold all my thoughts.

  • Day One Review (Long, thought out)

    By Aharo756
    In this multimedia engulfed universe, journaling has become a rare but precious art for few. Writing down something as simple as how you’re feeling in the moment can be a foundation for building a healthy routine. While the idea sounds tedious and time-consuming, the most convenient and visually stunning app, Day One, was created just for the purpose of making journaling effortless. I have always been into the concept of journaling, but I could never keep up with it until I discovered this conductive app. After Paul Mayne, Bloom Built Inc. CEO, kickstarted the app in 2011, it won the Mac App Store “App of the Year” a year later. Day One is an incredibly simple yet groundbreaking journaling platform that is available for Mac, iPhone, iPad and Apple Watch. Even though the app was started quite some time ago, it still regularly pushes updates. After a long search for the perfect one, I haven’t found a journaling app as proficient as Day One. While specifically designed for the purpose of journaling, its versatility allows it to be used as a planner, checklist, notepad and even as a vessel for self improvement, therapy and education. This is one of the amazing things about Day One; it doesn’t restrain you to a certain format or even require you to journal. Its inviting interface welcomes you and notes that all you need to do is create a new entry. The rest is up to you. I use Day One as a daily journal. When I first downloaded it, the app’s captivating design drew me in right away. That was quite a while ago, and with their newest update, version three the experience is much more enjoyable for new users. The first thing to take note of is three dominant icons: a camera for inserting pictures, a microphone for recording and transcribing and a pencil for creating a new entry. In each entry, Day One records the current weather, day, time, location, words and step count. Even while listening to music, the song you were listening to is documented in your entry while you make your entry. Also, I use different journals that act as folders to divide my entries between daily journaling and school, which is extremely nifty and convenient for keeping myself organized. One of the downsides of Day One is that, like most good things, they don’t come free. While the app itself and its basic features come complementary, a purchase is required to unlock everything. An unlimited amount of journals, pictures in each entry and encrypted storage all come with the premium version. With the new update, perks such as dark mode and audio recording and transcribing also become available if they choose to unlock the full version is unlocked. The app is already amazingly useful without the premium version, but if you’re looking to use Day One for long-term journaling, it’s $24.99 per year, a steep price I winced at initially. However, I would consider purchasing it now since I’ve been using the app almost every day now for the entire year. To top everything off, Day One offers a service that prints your entries and creates a book for you; a perfect feature when writing about a summer vacation, new experiences or even just a year in your life. Day One is a magnificent app tailored not just for professional writers or journal keepers, but for anyone and for any goal. I have found great satisfaction in this app, helping me get everything from my mind into a personal digital vault, only for my eyes to see. From all of its innovative features to its easy-to-use format, Day One deserves an A in my book — or journal, if you will.
  • Help!

  • Unsure

    By cawlbz
    I canceled my subscription because I was unsure about the safety of social media a couple of things I would like without having to buy the entire package like dictation, dictation really helps me and my eyesight is poor I’ve had multiple surgeries so sometimes it’s nice just to be able to dictate. I want to just keep it on my iPad And keep it private. I can’t see purchasing the premium package just for dictation although being able to dictate would be nice. They say talking is good talking out loud is even better my mind seems to go faster than I can type. When I start typing I forget my train of thoughts.
