What's New in Version 1.17.3
Fixed: Some users of iCloud Sync were unable to move beyond the "Preparing Journal" screen.
I really like this app. It'll be really great to help me remember things and look back on my days. I use tags all the time so I can categorize and find old entries, and I like being able to import picture information like location, date and time.
I'd like it if there was a map feature, showing where all you have written journal entries or been. I also think it would be good if journal entries on the same day didn't have the date next to both of them; just next to one entry. As it is I don't want to write more than one entry per day just because I don't like seeing one date multiple times in my timeline. I'd also like to be able to embed multiple images in one entry throughout the entry.
To be competitive with another journal app I think you should look into social media integration. I tweet a lot and would love to have a little ticker or something at the bottom of my entries with my tweets from that day.
But obviously these things don't take away from my enjoyment of the app, still a 5 star product!
Possibly Best App I Have Ever Used
I almost never take time to write a review, but I must make an exception here. Day One is so well designed, not just as a journal app, but as an app period. It does everything you would want it do, and does it exceptionally well. That said, I can't imagine a better journaling app. I'm a fan of paper & pencil, but Day One makes journaling so easy and well organized that I am completely won over for the day-to-day documenting of life. If you want to record memories, thoughts, and moments without the narcissism of social media, this app is for you. And if you do want to post publicly every once in a while? Yeah, it can do that, too.
Does more than I expected
This is a lovely app -- handsome interface, easy to use, syncs between devices, including the Mac. But I thought I would add a couple of things that delighted me, because I couldn't tell from descriptions and reviews whether they were supported. So let me share -- you can set an entry to any date, or change the date of the entry later. You can set an entry to automatically pick up the date of the photo you post with it. You can have more than one entry per day, with a photo for each entry. You can export an entry or a series of entries to a PDFs file. I really enjoy using this app. Highly recommended.
