Editors' Notes

It’s hard to make the best even better, but the sequel to Day One lives up to expectations—and then some. The app smartly keeps its interface streamlined but adds a wealth of new features that we’ve found immensely valuable. Your journal entries contain all sorts of information—you can geolocate them, add tons of photos to each entry, and even see your day’s fitness activity. You can switch over to a beautiful new photo view when you’re ready to see your world at a glance.

Good but no voice notes is bad.


Nice app, can see why it’s popular. But no voice notes doesn’t work for a journaling app. Simple attachments would be good too, but voice notes are a must. Also, the desktop app has this weird thing where the calendar only shows months you’ve already created an entry for. This stands in contrast to the iOS app which doesn’t have this limitation. It means you can’t just say, ‘create an entry for this date’ by choosing the date on a calendar. You have to create an entry for today’s date and then edit the date. It’s laborious. I know a journaling app is principally for creating entries for today, but in practice that’s not what happens, and I find myself wanting to set up entries for planned events in advance. This can’t be a philosophical limitation, in the sense of they want the UI to be purist and only, ‘for today’, it the iOS app would also have this limitation. So they should simply give you a regular calendar were you click on a day to create an entry. It’s weird this isn’t there. You could also update the weather etc info to match the day when it actually arrives, so can’t see that being an issue either.

Thank you so much for that feedback. We will forward this to the team. Audio recording is on our roadmap and nearly complete.

Glad I upgraded


I’d been holding out on Day One Classic for the past year, but finally decided to upgrade as I really wanted some modern features, such as multiple photo per entry and split view support for iPad.
I’m so glad I upgraded. I had to disable iCloud sync in the Classic app before it would import my old entries (this could be made clearer in the error message, but I found it on their site eventually).
Split view on iPad is a bit glitchy when Day One is the main app with another app docked to the side, but works fine when it’s the docked app on the side.
The auto backup to iCloud allayed my fears of data lock-in. There’s also an option for end-to-end encryption if for those that want to put security before convenience (some features don’t work when you enable this, which is understandable).
The new features such as ‘on this day’ and multiple journals make it well worth the upgrade, and I’m happy to pay about the cost of a latte every month for this. Top app. 👍
