The best journal on the store...but I would happily replace it

There is a ton of stuff to like about Day One. I have been using it for three years. I have two complaints about it, though. If someone ever produces a journaling app that fixes these two problems, I would switch in a New York minute.

Problem 1: the sync is unable to keep up with my touch typing, even when I am using the on-screen keyboard. This means that the keyboard buffer overflows, and the app either pauses its display of my typing or adds duplicate random keypresses. This is irritating, because it slows me down. I do not have this problem in any other app, so I am confident it is an issue with the way that Day One implements sync.

Problem 2: Overzealous Undo. I typed several paragraphs this morning, and then decided I didn't like the last sentence. I hit Command+Z, and it blew away the entire journal entry. Gone. If it had whacked a sentence or even a paragraph I could have understood that, but the *entire* entry??? That is just bloody unacceptable.

I am tempted to give the app less than 4 stars right now because I am so frustrated, but mostly it is really good. Just beware of Undo. You may not like the consequences. And watch your syncing, if you care about duplicate characters showing up in your typing.

Hard Working Developer!

As you can tell from all the other strong reviews, this is a killer app. Brilliantly executed with tremendous polish. More than anything I really respect and appreciate how hard the Dev's work at grinding out feature updates and how committed they seem to be to regular, transparent blog/twitter updates on their progress. Really helps keep up the faith in them and their product. The new Publish feature is masterfully implemented and a lot of fun to use. Also *major tip of the hat* for being brave and taking a more user friendly approach to the "rate me” dialogs. Thanks guys!

My daily go-to Ap

This application is so well thought out, not only for what it does, but why and how it does it. The ability to create an entry based on a photo I took a few days ago, and have it pull in the location, time, weather, etc, is very practical,and yet also an elegant solution. This is one of those core apps that becomes more useful the more you use it.

I didn't think id use the publishing features, but since it was introduced on the iPhone version first, it's actually been handy to share specific entries with others.

Highly recommended.
