Vreramente un’app. da avere. E’ un vero e proprio diario con possibilità di inserire foto ecc.. Io lo uso tantissimo per annotare moltissime cose: pagamenti, situazioni meteo, avvenimenti che riguardano me o la mia famiglia … insomma ci si può annotare tutto. Possedendo iPhone e iPad, ogni annotazione la ritrovo puntualmente. E’ qualche anno che uso DAYONE e funziona senza mai perdere un colpo!

Dopo anni di diari cartacei… finalmente ho raccolto tutto!

Un’app stupenda dove si possono raccogliere tutte le pagine di diario, persino quelle vecchie.
Infatti mi sono trascritta tutti i “fogli volanti” che avevo in giro, dando un ordine a tutto.
Intuitiva e con una grafica semplice e carina, la consiglio vivamente.

Highly recommended!!

A really must-have app that keep an useful and handy trace of your activitie, notes and thoughts throughout an entire lifetime.
Powerful and adjustable, flexible and friendly, quick in response and extremely capable of containing everything you don’t want to lose of your life experiences. It can works fine, fully integrated in a iCloud environment even if accessed from the web or other operating systems.
Something can be improved (i.e. the "search” function), but this App deserves my top rating: it’s one of my inexpendable apps in my Macs and iOS devices, both for work and leisure time.
Highly recommended, indeed.
