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.

Customer Reviews

• "private" journals, no warrant required!

Now it is easy to pay the developer to publish our private journals. Whee? +1 star for bug fixes, ok? 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.

Life happens when you're making other plans

I use this to record all the big and tiny moments of my kids life. I also use it to capture their new sayings and thoughts of the world.

And now the app is even better- you can print your journal! The people at DayOne listen to their customers and deliver. I haven't yet ordered my book, but I can't wait to! They not only add the feature, the design of the book is simple and beautiful. Best app on my phone, iPad, and laptop. Thank You!

Will be 5 stars once encryption happens

This app is the best journaling app. It's also one of the best iOS apps overall. Once encryption is finished, this app will get 5 stars from me. That's the only thing keeping me from going all-in on Day One.

(Some of the new fonts on the UI elements are a little weird, too, but that's not enough to impact the rating.)
