Five Years Deep, Still Five Stars
I instantly thought it was the best when the app was first released some five years ago. Five years later, it is still the reigning champ in the world of journaling. Flexible, powerful, uncluttered user experience, great customer service, reliable and constantly tweeked and improved to make it better- these are all the reasons this is worth your money. I definitely don’t prefer the subscription model that is emerging as the app industry-standard, but that’s not necessarily Day One’s problem. I get it- you’ve got to figure out a way to keep the lights on in a fiercly competitive industry, but still, I clearly realize that this is a way to make more money off of me for a longer amount of time. As a consumer I would much rather pay a one time fee and own the app and it’s features out-right without having to use a slice of my monthly disposable income on an ongoing subscription. But alas it appears that this is where the industry is headed and nobody really cares what a Joe Shmoe like me thinks. But I seriously love Day One- get it now! And if it doesn’t have a feature to address your super obscure need that literally no one else needs or wants, please don’t get all bent out of shape and leave them a one star review. Also, if you’re going to leave them a one star review at least have the class to punctuate your tasteless review. Nothing says intelligence like a paragraph without periods.
For a person who doesn’t journal I blame this app for changing me.
I’m always told to write it down it will help in coping with issues of life or when you keep forgetting things. I had tried to work with those old composition books as they have been easy and cheap. I spent times writing and times not writing. I find that working with this older method works for some people but its doesn’t 100% work for me. I came across Day One by accident as I was looking for a good txt editor for my old Macbook pro. When I did my search I found a lot but noting that interest me. It wasn’t until I came across the Day One app and started to read over what it was. It was completly diffrent then what I was looking for but it was something that was diffrent then those old composition books a friend suggested I work with. On the technology spectrum I fall in a very rare group as I’m older then most when it comes to being tech savy but when I started using Day One I was kinda of blown away at how easy it was just to have items flow from my head onto the app. It wasn’t about writing with a keyboard over a pencil. It was just easy to get the thoughts from my head onto something I can save, review, and if something should happen a closing txt of what’s been on my mind for a while. I would highly recommend this app as my title points out I’m a person who doesn’t Journal until now.
So easy, you have no excuse for not keeping a journal
The interface of DayOne is very clean and easy to use. Exporting backups is great and adding entries is very streamlined. But having the daily reminder to add notes is the best! Every day I get a simple reminder (there is an app that pops open at a scheduled time on my laptop) to add an entry. I plug in a few sentences and click Save. I can snooze the reminder or even close it if I don’t have anything to say. That little feature keeps me in check. I always remember to at least jot down a brief explaination of what I want to journal, then when I have more time I can come back and clean up or expand on the entry. I went from someone saying, “Man, I should really keep a journal.” to becoming someone that has 2+years worth of at least weekly entries. Oh… and that is with the free version. I am about to upgrade because I find myself jotting notes into my phone just to copy/paste them into DayOne later. Having the ability to add entries, pictures and recordings from my phone will be great.
Another feature I’m excited to experimnet with is exporting your entries into a physical book. Was very happy when I read about that service. My journal is about my young family, and one day, I’m hoping that this will add up to be a book that I can pass down through the generations.
Six month user
I would truly love to keep a handwritten journal but unfortunately, I have never been able to make that habit stick. I started using Day One on December 31st (yes, it was a yet another New Year’s resolution to keep a journal). My dad referred me to the Day One app after he tried the trial. I’m happy to report that I have now been using it for 6 full months. I use it on my MacBook, iPhone, and I even used it on my apple watch the other day to quickly note something. Like other users have mentioned, there is some features that would make it even better but I love this app without those features. I pay for premium and I think that the annual fee is completey worth it and reasonable.
Day One is a convient way to stick to journaling. It’s neat that it captures the time/place/weather as well. The tagging feature is really convient for me to go back and look at specific entries. Another reason I like it is because I really like to upload one photo a day but sometimes I forget. If you upload photos a few days later, it gives you the option to time stamp the journal entry with the date of the photo. If you have had trouble keeping a handwritten journal, I cannot recommend this app enough! Give it a try, you won’t be disappointed. I will be using this app for years to come. Thanks Day One!
