Worth the Investment

Day One is an app that I’ve used for many years. It has been well developed and maintained, unlike other apps that are forgotten about by developers over time. Many of the ongoing new features make sense and are a joy to use. Most apps are switching to a subscription based model in order to ensure a revenue stream for continued support and development (especially as the app store gets increasingly crowed with millions of apps and counting).

ii think Day One have been experimenting with their pricing model for subscriptions and ii now believe the very low price of a cup of coffee per month, or one meal per year, is very reasonable… imagine you’re giving this to a Day One developer for their ongoing work… ii certainly cannot argue with that.

As for form and functionality, the Day One app across all devices (Mac, iPhone, etc) is very beautiful, polished and sleek. It is a joy to use and a product ii hope to continue to use for a very long time.

What a Con!!

A while ago I paid for the app for my Mac, had been using it on iphone and iPad as well. Now i cannot recover or edit any of my neumoerous journel entries (some of which are very important to me) as its now a very expensive subscription service. Very unhappy to say the least.

You developers are very unfair doing this to people who already paid for the app - very inconsiderate. I hope you do not make the money you wanted, you are taking advantage of people now!!!

Really love it

With the multiple journal section I am able to keep track of many differnet things in my life. Would definetely recommend for journaling as well as organisation.
