Customer Reviews

This version is still wonderful. Don't be fooled.

They release a new version, making us pay FIVE MORE DOLLARS for an app that we have already invested a great deal of money in (the phone and Mac version.)
Weird how the ratings on the old app are averaging at 1 now, when the average of this app used to be around 5 stars before they released the new version. Now that version has an average of 5 stars to encourage you to spend even more money. Don't be fooled. This app is still wonderful.

The app setup is simple and beautiful, and the capabilities are innovative. It's simple and still works well.


So annoying when companies release a new app and make you pay a ton of money for it! Makes me feel like my original purchase was such a waste. If you are looking for an alternative (at least an alternative company who does right by their customers) you should look into the 5 minute journal app. I bought their app initially and then they released a new one for $5. I was initially irritated but they completely impressed when they offered to send me $5 via pay pal to pay for the new version. How awesome is that. Check them out and leave Day One - they stink.

The best version

This app supports sync through iCloud, a feature that provides a more secure environment for journaling. The most important features have remained. This will remain my go to app for journaling until a new version incorporates security and sync over iCloud.
