Customer Reviews

Mixed feelings about paying for this

I used this app and set up multiple journals, and then suddenly because they want to charge a monthly fee I can't access all the journals save one. Not even to get the entries I've made out and into another app.. for my money this is a nice app but not robust enough to be spending another monthly sub fee on..

It needs better control over typefaces, bold etc.. what is here is limited and frankly glitchy. Now they want to hold the notebooks I set up ransom?

I'll be shopping some more before I do that, thanks. It was a nice try however.

Stay Away. Stay FAR Away

Okay, Bloom. This is it.

You did us a solid earlier in the month by releasing end-to-end encryption. I was skeptical then (given that it took well over a year of promises to get that) but you actually did it. I was happy--no, ecstatic--about the release. It basically washed away all of the bad feelings that I had about your journaling product.

Then today happened.

So, let's recap: you introduced a new "premium" service, offering unlimited journals and photos. Okay, great. Not too bad...

Then I realized that YOU TOOK AWAY sync. I mean, what? I PAID FULL PRICE for both the iOS app and Mac app when 2.0 was released. Yes, full price. I was also a customer of the previous, 1.0 edition.

Not only that, I had about six journals in total that I was keeping with Day One. Guess what? Aside from the very first journal that I made with Day One, I CAN'T ACCESS ANY OF THE OTHER FIVE JOURNALS that I have created. Really?? Really??

No more. Nope. Fool me once...shame on you. Fool me twice...

Deleting all of my apps from you. I'll eat the cost that I spent on them, but I strongly advise anyone to STAY FAR AWAY from this company.


With no many negative reviews, they decided to push out a minor update to erase the angst of their user base. This used to be one of the best journaling apps available in the App Store. After purchasing V2.0.10 in September 2016 and loving it. They updated the app and removed the ability to sync via icloud, dropbox and other 3rd parties. The also moved the user base to a subscritpion model. This forces users who log entries via both iphone and ipad into a subscription service. This is a huge breach of trust and customer service. Recommend finding another app that allows you to keep your private moments private.
