A Gateway to Reality

I have always wanted to journal, but the inconvenience of having the small book, an appropriate pen, and the physical circumstances seemed to prevent me from doing so. As I have an iPhone, iPad, and a MacBook Pro, and have one of those readily available just about all the time, journaling becomes practice. The two missing elements are a busy life and moments I want to capture that are sufficiently stirring that they will make me want to record the event.

Day One reminds me each day to journal (Important!) and allows me to take a photo either in Photos or right from the app. The combination inspires me to write about what I have photographed. I have been frustrated with photo apps in that they are not focused on a written description of what was going on a the moment the image was captured. Day One solves that.

Perhaps the greatest benefit of Day One is that I can easily see and read (unlike my handwriting in awkward places and in a small journaling book) what I have written in the past. The "me" that is revealed in my writing is a different "me" than the one I perceive in my mind's eye. Writing is, as others have noted, a window into the soul and a reflection of reality. I am benefitting from that window and that reflection thanks to Day One.

I am sincerely thankful for the creators of this wonderful app.

Somehow Is More Useful Than Most eJournals

Journaling, keeping a daily journal, has been my practice since 1964. For many years only pen and paper would do. Then I broke the mold and switched to pencil to get more paper and pencil traction feel,feeling the friction, so I always liked paper journals. I've tried many electronic journals but always stop using them because I lose the data. However, for unknown reasons, good ones, I like this journal enough to have stayed with it for six months. I like the password feature, finger print password on my iPad Pro. I encrypt my entries by writing in Portuguese! However, it works great in English too. I like the format, the features, and include pictures, links (really almost anything). I use it every day and often more than once a day. It is totally convenient and no bugs or problems at all.

Fantastic App for Writing Journals

It is really an excellent app for journal writing. I have only recently developed an interest in writing journals and I was looking at all those apps that helped you keep daily journals. I've read many comments about Day One Journal and many people recommend that. I was hesitating at first because it costs you five bucks on this but I then decided to give it a try(among all those journal apps, I was slightly attracted by its app icon😂😂). And I found it really a good app and worth of the money. It is clear, simple, well-designed. You can take photos directly using the app to record beautiful moments. It allows you to add tags, to record the places and weather if you want, and add musics and activities and many other things. Give it a try and it really worths it. It also motivates you to keep writing. Fabulous!
