Capture life as you live it. From once-in-a-lifetime events to everyday moments, Day One's elegant interface makes journaling about your life a simple pleasure.


With Day One 2.0, we're proud to provide Day One Sync — a fast, free, and secure service for syncing your data between all your devices. Day One Sync lays the foundation for many new features: a web app, an IFTTT channel, private-key encryption, and more. In tandem with Day One Sync, you can also use iCloud for backups.

PLEASE NOTE: iCloud and Dropbox syncing *are not* supported in Day One 2.0. If using iCloud or Dropbox syncing is essential to you, use Day One Classic.

• "private" journals, no warrant required!

+1 star for bug fixes. [We can dream that this developer might eventually employ the new, forthcoming Apple File System (APFS), to finally implement end-to-end encryption, promised previously. But really, don't hold your breath, mate. Instead, use Apple's Notes app with its own encryption.] This Day One app now uses proprietary sync on shared, 3rd party AWS servers, without any encryption (neither end-to-end, nor otherwise). Turns out that, as the journals are unencrypted, and particularly considered to be in possession of a 3rd party, the Fourth Amendment is not held to apply under current judicial interpretation, and any practicing lawyer may issue a subpoena to easily access them, without notice -- i.e., no warrant or probable cause are required. Taking the position that one does not care about privacy because one has nothing to hide, is very much the same as claiming one isn't concerned about freedom of speech because one has nothing to say. We don't and won't currently employ this product for private data, having objected when iCloud sync was removed from this app at the beginning of 2016. We continue to hope that this developer will eventually implement encryption, as finally promised back then. Apple's Notes app is more stable and secure.

A very good journaling app!

I absolutely love the fact that I can use my Apple Watch to journal. Although the Apple Watch app only relies on dictation at this point. I do hope in the future that I can use the scribble feature so I can add to my journal entries in that way. I'm not sure if that is an Apple limitation or a Day One limitation.

For the iPad, I wish that I could use my stylus by 53 or Apple Pencil and that either it would translate my hand writing to readable text or just allow me to store my hand written journal entries. I also have to assume that people with Apple Pencil would like the ability to journal on their iPads using the Day One app. Whether journaling through use of a stylus or using a finger for that scribble feature on Apple Watch allows a very private way you may want to capture a moment as you're living it.

I do wish there is a way to share a journal. Specifically, a love journal. I'm sure there are others who can find this feature useful.

Day One 2.0 > Evernote

I think I will not renew Evernote because of the Day One 2.0 upgrade. Day One 2.0 is helping me focus on one thing at a time—Journaling. This app is wonderful for keeping both a personal and professional journal in which you can track your activities via text, photos, and files. The biggest advantage Day One has over Evernote is in the design and UI of the iOS app. Day One for IOS is streamlined for doing exactly what you want to do: write a journal post. Evernote does not open to a blank page immediately and is not as intuitive for doing what you want to do as fast as you can. Every second counts. However, not only does Day One conquer Evernote on the iOS side, Day One on Mac look exactly the same, so you have the same visual triggers to help you get stuff out of your head.
