  • Needs Handwriting for iPad Pro

    By TriGuru
    There’s something therapeutic about journaling with “pen and paper.” It would be great if Day One supported this.
  • Can’t synch or Record without annual fee?

    By Pmcbee
    Maybe I’m missing something but it appears that I can’t record voice entries or use across devices without paying $25 a year. Not positive what that leaves for the free application, but it looks like I can much better functionality for one time purchases under $10. Disappointing, but not interested in having access to my journal dependent on infinite fees.
  • Almost perfect app

    By Viiv
    This journal has been a game changer. I really love everything it does for me, especially the reminder of entries from years past. There are two reasons I didn’t give 5 stars: 1. Case sensitive hashtags — If one instance of a hashtag is capitalized and other instances are lower case, the capitalized instance will not show up when I search the lowercase tag. I don’t see a reason why #Dream and #dream should be two separate lists. Whenever I enter a hashtag on the fly, I have to remember whether the original instance was capitalized or lower case. Obviously I should just create all tags lowercase, right? Tell that to my autocorrect. If the hashtag is at the beginning of a sentence, autocorrect will capitalize it. If I’m dropping a tag somewhere in the middle of a sentence, it will naturally not be capitalized. 2. Advertisements — The idea of providing a book printing service for the journal add-on is great, but I feel like I pay enough for this app to avoid advertisements. They aren’t frequent, but once in a while, when I open the journal to create an entry, I have to click out of an ad trying to get me to buy a printed copy of the journal.
  • Endless problems

    By kirfly
    I bought this app for my Mac at the App Store but I couldn’t sync with my iphone. I contacted the developers but they couldn’t help. So I ended up buying a subscription for my phone as well. It finally synced but only once. As much as I like Day One I think I will switch to Evernote or even Word.
  • Day One Ditching Old iPads

    By Delta_Petra
    Why are you stopping support for older devices? You used to be welcome on my Gen 1 iPad Mini; now you don't support it? Come on now!
  • Please Help?

    By jr10012
    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.
  • No instagram native importing

    By --**
    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.
