Customer Reviews


I absolutely love this app! It’s easy to use and convenient! My favorite features include:
1. The automatic time/date/weather/location date it puts in and how if I forget to journal an event and days later I go back to do so, it remembers those facts and asks if I would like to attach them! Of course! It’s neat looking back at entries and seeing the weather, location and time. Gives more depth to the memory.
2. A Mac App!! For longer journal entries or more reflective entries, I always prefer to type on a computer and I love that they have a desktop version that syncs so fluidly with my ios one.
3. Multiple Journals and tags! I love sorting my journals! Tags are nice to sort but the addition of being able to tag AND have other journals is great!

Features I wish were available:
1. Ability to add movies!!!! Pictures are great to look back on memorable moments, but videos add so much more to a memory!

That’s really the only feature, I feel, they are currently lacking.

I haven’t used the ability to print my journals but I LOVE that they have that feature now! I was thinking they should have something like that! And I don’t currently subscribe as finances don’t allow right now, but I wouldn’t mind when our budget allows so I can insert more photos in an entry because I understand supporting the developer. They really do a great job at maintaining this app and they have done a phenomenal job creating it! Love it!

I’d give it a 5 but...

I loved this app — and then start having glitchy issues a couple weeks ago. Support is awesome but I haven’t heard back on why it keeps crashing every time I try to add more photos into an entry. Maybe it has an issue with larger photo streams (I had 250 pics)? Whatever the case I was disappointed I couldn’t chronicle a big trip we took and eventually had to move the photos off my phone because I was running out of room. Since this is an app without a desktop version (you can view but not edit) I couldn’t finish the journal. I’ll update this review if we’re able to resolve the issue, otherwise I’ll be looking for another journaling app to migrate to.

Chronicle your life

I’ve always been an avid user of apps that help to organize my thoughts and writing. Day One stand stands out as one the best. Use it to coalesce all your digital work into one place. The best parts: it reminds me of journal entries I made on this date years ago; the export to PDF function; the ability to get a printed book of my entries (I did it, it’s awesome). As a revenue point, I rarely write reviews, and I rarely use apps for so long. I’ve used Day One for the past couple of years, and enjoyed it so much I purchased the version for my Mac, and everything syncs amazingly.
