This is what Facebook, twitter, snapchat, et al would be if we didn’t feel the pathologically-narcissistic need to feel “liked” (and the world would be a much better place): create your own posts, and keep them to yourself, completely!!! Let’s face it, most posts are crushingly banal, so you know, don’t share, and keep them on this app. But if you do feel like your particularly clever on any one day, then by all means, do share, and Day One gives you that option as well, as well as being able to forward as emails, send as PDF’s, and other. Font choices are elegant, and varied, and it’s just a perfect place to keep notes on just about anything, and you can even add a photo to each entry for reference; nothing groundbreaking, but not much is, and the way this is so simply organized is just perfect. And all the sharing has come to Babel-tower proportions anyway, so you know, indulge in the new sin/stigma: discretion, privacy, prudence, refrainment, reserve, restraint, etc. Trust me: you will feel better then sharing with the hundreds of people you barely know on some social media site. And it’s also a great substitute for Evernote.
Love it…but I have a few wishes
(I tried to write a review a few moments ago but I think it got lost. Sorry if this is a duplicate.)
This app has been just what I need to keep a daily journal. I like the look of it and I like the organization of it. It is very easy to use.
I have a few wishes though.
*I email my entries to myself so I can transfer them into an encrypted file where I normally keep journal entries. The body of the email automatically includes the weather and location but I wish it also included the date/time and tags. I am having to add those manually and it makes the transfer process a little more time consuming.
*The search function looks at text within the entries. But I can't figure out how to search a date in "Timeline" mode. For example, if I want to see entries for all years on Dec 1st.
*I don't mind that I only get one photo per entry but I can see why people would want that. I might use it if the option was there. But again, not bothered by the way it is.
I have no complaints…just those few wishes. I love it.
The first journal application that I actually use.
I have wanted to journal for about 15 years, but never stuck with it for various reasons. I had tried everything… moleskin, notepad, word, databases, evernote. None of them worked for me, I would peter off about a short time.
Day One is an application that I love, other than iOS/OSX itself (and maybe iMessage) is my most used application.
Going back through and seeing the small moments that I capture are a true treasue, I know that I would have forgotten them and they would have been lost to the either if it were not for Day One. Like a picture of my son riding the vacuum cleaner one day while we were getting ready to do chores. It was a small event but seeing the memory again brings it back and how happy he was.
The way it integrates between all of my devices is seamless, it also offers the ability to script on the Mac which is useful to me as I am an advanced user.
This is one set of apps that is worth every penny on both platforms.
