A Powerful Tool For Journaling

Well done Day One - I recommend this app to anyone looking for an easy to use journaling assist.
I've been using Day 1 for over a year, and thanks to this app, for the first time in my life I'm writing on a consistent basis. Not only am I keeping a daily (almost everyday) record of thoughts, feelings, opinions and events, but I've also developed additional journals to help track medical issues for my wife and one for me. I also have a journal for my fiction writing.
The Search tool is very useful for going back and finding key thoughts or events and putting them in context with my timeline. I love the fact that Day 1 can add time, date, location and even weather conditions as a kind of digital footnote to my entries. Being able to add photos, web links, and other net based info, enriches the quality of my content.
I'm 63 and not as tech savvy as I used to be, but this was easy to learn on the fly.

Devastating crash

It's hard to give this app 2 stars, because the concept is amazing. And actually the design is lovely, too, but I should have known better than to invest so much of my life into technology. I downloaded this app in 2014 I believe, because I wanted to start journaling and typing is faster than writing. It worked super well and was very convenient, as it saved my work across many devices. Until 2015 rolled around and one day I opened up the app, I think it crashed or I had updated it or something but an entire year's worth of my journal entries had disappeared, across all devices. Customer support tried to help but nothing worked. I'm writing this review now because I haven't touched the app in almost two years for fear of my other entries disappearing too. Ever since then I've been journaling by hand. Yes, this is a bad review because of one bad experience but honestly this could happen to anyone and if you ask me, you're better off journaling by hand. This app is probably better for writings/thoughts that aren't crucial.

The subscription is well worth it

I've been a Day one user for as many years as it dates back to the classic version. At least since 2011. There's been some complaints about moving away from ICloud and Dropbox, then most recently the subscription model...

I hope that this model keeps them well enough financed to stay with this Journaling program that ive really come to count on.
The extras and syncing that happens between Day One servers are as seemless as before with I cloud.. I never had problems before and don't now.

I think really good software should be supported and to expect that a 1 time payment for the paltry amounts we paid in the beginning could possibly support and sustain a product like this for years to come is simply ignorant.

People should make a living, and the future development of this product should be supported, and not expected to support someone 3 years from now for the cost of a few lattes today.

Wake up people, this is the future of software. While I can't say I want endless 1.99 or whatever amount,,subscriptions whittling away at my bank account, there are a few I can accept. This one keeps life's thoughts, pics and many special places, moments. It's value is really hard to put a dollar amount to.

I enjoy Day One tremendously.. I highly recommend.
