Spammy, Hard to Delete, Expensive

I'm aghast at what Day One has become. I re-downloaded it after not using it for a couple years, and discovered it's now $30/year, forces alerts, won't quit, and is now taking an email to their support team to figure out how to uninstall. If you're looking for a personal journal to log your thoughts and journey, look elsewhere.
