Customer Reviews

More pictures please!

I love using this app - it has many great features: ability to set reminders, inspirational ideas to get you writing, organization (tags, chronological sorting, etc), ability to add a photo, etc. However, I would love the ability to add more than one photo to an entry and be able to write about the photo underneath each one. Thanks Day One!

Best app, with critical flaw

I love this app. Those looking for a good way to log their thoughts and days need look no farther—but only if you’re not concerned with airtight security. The app has never been encrypted, but since the introduction of their own sync solution, it’s even worse. Now developers and IT people on the cloud end can actually read your stuff. Granted, it’s unlikely anyone ever would, but they could.

It seems to me, as a personal journaling platform, the very *first* thing it should be is secure. No one should have access under any circumstances. As of right now, Day One isn’t that app. If you can ignore that though, this is a stunner of an app with a bright future. You just have to live with your data not being secure if you want to use the full feature set.
