Customer Reviews

⚠️ 👎🏾 Do not trust Day One or Bloom Built Inc.

I've been a Day One user since March 2013. I successfully synced with iCloud and Dropbox, as did many other customers based on recent reviews that criticize your unethical behavior. Basically, you advertised and sold an app that allegedly had glitches so you rebuilt the app eliminating features customers previously paid for. You now charge customers to use your proprietary syncing service. The ethical solution would have been to continue allowing customers -- like me -- (who paid for and successfully utilized iCloud and Dropbox) to resume syncing with those 3rd party services. Instead you took the unethical route and rolled out an update that forces customers to use your syncing service, added new functionality (multiple journals) then as time passed, started charging (bait-and-switch) for your syncing service and to access the new features. I now have multiple journals I cannot access, and I no longer can sync between devices without paying for "Day One Premium". I was already a Day One plus user and now you want to charge me more.

Day One will propose using Day One Classic to continue syncing with Dropbox. Again, another example of how disconnected they are from the end users (customers). Day One Classic does not support the journal entries created in the subsequent version -- namely, multiple photos per journal entry.

Potential to Re-Energize Your Life

For years I have always made it a point to have a notebook available to me for the purpose of journaling about all sorts of aspects of my life. The trouble is that it will not occur to me to actually write entries on anything remotely close to a regular basis. Not only that but the things I wish to write about fall into different categories and levels of sensitivity ranging from the ultra private to things I hope to eventually share with others. With Day One I find that the ability to create multiple journals that can be accessed and synced across devices and protected appropriately results in journaling staying at the forefront of my mind. The ability to collect photos and metadata makes journaling fun and more interesting. Now it's becoming a habit and I love watching the record I am keeping of my life grow. It encourages me to live each day more fully because that not only makes life more enjoyable but increases the excitement about reliving your days in the form of writing! I highly recommend this app to all humans!

I love day one but classic still my fav

Best journaling app for iOS, no contest. Would love the option to import calendar events into the meta data like I see weather, steps, and music to help add important context to my day. I'd also like the ability to create a timeline page from my calendar data which would be useful for printed books and seeing my year at a glance. It'd also be cool if I could link to other journal entries from other dates for referencing events and people. Since we have multiple storylines arching through our lives at any given moment, I'd like better way to organize those data points. Basically I wish this journal automatically indexed names and events or let me manually do that so that with a tap I could pull up all journal entries about a person, place, or event without using hashtags. Finally I wish it had an option to automatically add more stuff to each day without creating new entries. Right now I use TextExpander to time stamp and I don't have the ability to add updated meta data like weather, steps or locations to that update. Instead I have to create a whole new entry which creates a lot of stuff to scroll through.

1 star so the developer will acknowledge - after that I'll update to 5.
