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.

For more information, see:

Customer Reviews

• "private" journals, no warrant required!

+1 star for bug fixes. Security, however, is still fatallly flawed. Do not use. [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.

End to End Encryption!! Dream on!

Still no encryption!

Nothing new. I think they keep updating to get rid of poor reviews.

February 13, 2017

As good as it's going to get.

February 1, 2017

Finally! End to End encryption!
Made you look 👁👁. Another meaningless update to pretend that customers are getting what they asked for for years. What a joke Dayone.

Still no encryption! One year later and excuses.
2017 and still no encryption! Think twice before purchasing. There are better alternatives if iCloud, Dropbox sync and encryption are important.

Still waiting on encryption and needs a cloud sync. Worthy of 0 stars right now!
Needs iCloud sync! This update is same old stuff. Fix what's really broken!

Your customers DO NOT want DayOne Sync! They want iCloud sync!

Come on Bloom Built! Look at your customer complaints. Customers should have more choices. Your customers want to make this the best journaling app ever! Listen to their suggestions and needs. I don't mind paying for the newer version, however it should be an upgrade. Not a step back.

Like the option to add more than one picture. App seems cluttered compared to original version. Still needs encryption as promised. Waiting and waiting!

For now, I won't be using this app. I'm still hopeful! Buyer beware!!

Hard to navigate not user-friendly

The reason I upgraded to day one journal was because I loved day one classic so much and it seemed that it would be an enhanced App. I do love that you can make multiple journals and add lots of pictures .However I am very disappointed that the upgrades don't seem to work on my iPhone 6s especially the IFTTT app does not integrate my information to my day one journal. I have only had this journal for two days so if by chance it starts working I will update my review. But as it stands I do not feel that the price I paid for this app was worth it.
