Customer Reviews

Great for journalling with the support of Markdown

I’ve been using this application for the last 2 years and it’s been great. The mere fact that I can get my thoughts down easily and without having to lift my finger off the keyboard due to the use of markdown makes it even better.

I’ve got Day One on iOS as well, so the integration with Dropbox makes it seemless in me being able to start a quick entry on the mobile and then finishing it off on the desktop version.

Let’s just see what the next major upgrade will bring. Would totally recommend this application to all my family and friends.

Simple, Clean and Beautiful

This is my first time spending $9.99 for an apps. Is totally worth it.
If you are looking for something
* Easy to handle
* Clean over look
* Fast
* Easy to export your journal into PDF
* Selecting either icloud, dropbox or their dayone server, this will be ur choice

*** Best feature for me is the apps will ask either using todays date to enter the content or using the date of the photo taken to enter the content. I found out this is the best feature at all !

highly recommended DayOne as your personal daily Journal !!
