  • Totally worth it.

    By °*•.•*°*•.Review.•*°*•.•*°
    I pay the subscription. This app is worth it. Seriously. The organization. The ease. The privacy. The syncing between computer and phone. This has kept me journaling for three years. Thanks for the app. The minor problems are few and far between. Suggestion: add a simple habit tracker into the app?
  • Freezing Up

    By 1928em
    While I love that I can now add more photos to an entry among other new features, it has been freezing up after sign in. I haven’t been able to fix it (sign out, close app, restart phone, etc.). All my other apps are still working though just this one. Very disappointed since this is the highest I’ve paid for any app ever😕.
  • Top-of-the-line journal software

    By elDujo
    I’ve been using this journal for several for about two years I’m purchasing power I got the app from the App Store on my iPhone probably back as far as 2015 and I can say that now I’m starting to get full advantage of the journal software and I will continue to use it in the future. And I am beginning to use it as intended I will document every moment of my life.
  • Subscription for journaling is total BS!

    By Annieluvski
    I open the older version of the Day One app to jot down a cute thing that my kid said... come to find out, the developer did not update the app but instead created a whole new app with a ridiculous subscription! 😡 This makes me feel very frustrated and angry because now I CAN NOT retrieve any of the information that I had logged into Day One!!!!! How frustrating is it that I CAN NOT RETRIEVE any precious memories and quotes from my kids all because the developer wanted to put some money in their pockets for a journal?! Would you pay someone to keep your memories in?! Nope, I don’t think so! SO FREAKING DISAPPOINTED!!!!!

    Twice I have imputed on the 14th and twice it has disappeared.
  • Best App in Store!

    By Maui Kid
    DayOne has got to be the best app in the Apple Store. I’ve been extremely critical of the app while going through some of its changes over the years, but I have to say the developers have done a great job. DayOne is beautiful, reliable and has lots of features. I have never had a problem with losing data or completing backups for safety. The developers also respond to questions and are always available very quickly. 10 Stars ⭐️ if I could!
  • On my top 5 favorite app list!

    By Abell1989
    This is a great app! I don’t usually write reviews, but I sincerely enjoy it and it has helped me journal more because of how easy it is to use—and easy to organize different journals and tag specific things within one journal. I like being able to upload pictures in order to make the entry even more special. Suggestion: would sincerely appreciate being able to upload videos—even if they were small short videos to help recapture special moments. Great, great, app. Thank you, Day One! Really!
  • Randomly deletes entries right after you finish writing them

    By Wesleybanana
    I’ve been a fan of Day One for five years now. I’ve used it everyday to record my life and absolutely love this app. At least, until recently. They used to have an issue with entries disappearing. The problem mostly went away until the last few months, when it started happening again. I’ll write 500-1,000 words and then as soon as I click “done” the entry reverts back to only the first few sentences. I would understand if this was a rare bug, but it happens on average in about 1 in 10 entries. It’s gotten to the point where I have to back up each entry separately to avoid losing data, which defeats the purpose of using the app. Is spoke to customer service and they literally just told me that they know this happens and they’re working on it. I find it difficult to believe that it takes a YEAR to work out a basic function of the app, especially now that we’re paying the developers annually to work on this kind of thing. I have no problem paying you guys on subscription as long as you’re bringing value to the table, but when you’re spending hours on adding fancy colors while ignoring basic UX, it really has me questioning whether my money would be best spent elsewhere. Please stop prioritizing frills like graphs and word counts and fix the basics first.
  • Almost there

    By rcniman
    Ugh. Day One is, on the one hand, one of my favorite apps, and I use it daily. And I’m happy with the subscription model. But every word of my review from when they first introduced the subscription model still applies: no audio recording, no publishing, no web version, and typing still is a frustrating experience compared to typing in other apps. This slow development is increasingly frustrating. My original review: I love Day One and the ability to look back on entries by date and location. I'm happy to pay a subscription model, but hope that means they come through with new features soon, namely audio recording and publishing to a blog (now that they're working on a web version I hope they simply allow you to make a journal public/password protected so anyone can view it). Those are long wished for/promised features that would make my workflow even simpler. Finally, I still experience typing lag issues on both my iPhone and iPad pro. I type long entries, so generally use Drafts 4 and then import the text. These typing bugs have persisted for quite awhile. Pretty minor overall and may only affect longer entries or entries with a lot of photos.
  • Best Journaling Option Available

    By courtneyk93
    I can’t say it enough. Day One is the best journaling option you’ll find. It’s secure, backs up to iCloud, allows for multiple journals, stores photos, and it’s just so convenient. You really cannot go wrong using Day One.
