Ratings and Reviews
OK for simple use
As a computer consultant I purchased this to evaluate it in comparison to the gold standard journal - Day One. It falls well short of that standard, but is also cheaper.
If you don’t care about syncing to your iPad/iPhone this app will work fine. Neither Dropbox sync nor their proprietary sync works effectively - I tried both over a period of a month. The end result is a huge mess. The peer to peer works periodically, but not well enough to be considered effective. The Dropbox sync just flat out doesn’t work and customer support has never responded to requests for explanation.
As long as you just want to keep a simple journal and are willing to trust your life events to one program, this one is relatively inexpensive. If you want a full-featured journal with an attractive layout and sync that works rapidly and seamlessly, Day One is you answer - assuming that you’re willing to pony up the extra $$. The reason for the 1 star rating is that they shouldn’t advertise features that simply don’t work.
Skip this piece of garbage
I bought this because of the claims on the company’s web site and their iOS version that it supported encrypted synchronization via iCloud. After spending a couple of hours failing to get it to work I emailed the developer who responded the next day that encryption with Mac is a known issue and that they’ll fix it in the future, couldn’t/woudln't give me an estimate of when. Got a refund from apple for this piece of garbage.
I’ve previously used Day One; however, I bought Capture 365 Journal because it offers Dropbox/iCloud syncing and data encryption, which Day One 2 does not. However, upon using Capture 365 Journal, I found that it feels disappointingly amateurish. The app is missing a lot of small, but important polish. For example, if you’ve enabled password protection, and you launch the app, the password box does not have input focus, so you need to click it before you can enter your password. In the settings, if you switch between iCloud and Dropbox cloud services, the app hangs on a “Changing sync service” spinner. There’s a “Data Encryption” checkbox that always seems to be disabled. Below it is an input box for an encryption key—instead of acting like a password field, this input box displays the key you enter in plaintext. It’s also unclear when/how the key is applied (especially considering that the “Data Encryption” checkbox always seems to be disabled). The app seems plagued by these bugs and polish issues.
From a feature perspective, Capture 365 Journal is missing the ability to scroll through all entries across all years. The next/previous arrow functionality is date-based. So, unless you write every day, you wind up scrolling through a lot of empty days. Overall, this app is quite disappointing. I cannot use it as it is, so I feel that I’ve wasted $20.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
