Customer Reviews

Five Years Deep, Still Five Stars

I instantly thought it was the best when the app was first released some five years ago. Five years later, it is still the reigning champ in the world of journaling. Flexible, powerful, uncluttered user experience, great customer service, reliable and constantly tweeked and improved to make it better- these are all the reasons this is worth your money. I definitely don’t prefer the subscription model that is emerging as the app industry-standard, but that’s not necessarily Day One’s problem. I get it- you’ve got to figure out a way to keep the lights on in a fiercly competitive industry, but still, I clearly realize that this is a way to make more money off of me for a longer amount of time. As a consumer I would much rather pay a one time fee and own the app and it’s features out-right without having to use a slice of my monthly disposable income on an ongoing subscription. But alas it appears that this is where the industry is headed and nobody really cares what a Joe Shmoe like me thinks. But I seriously love Day One- get it now! And if it doesn’t have a feature to address your super obscure need that literally no one else needs or wants, please don’t get all bent out of shape and leave them a one star review. Also, if you’re going to leave them a one star review at least have the class to punctuate your tasteless review. Nothing says intelligence like a paragraph without periods.

Great journal app!

I really love this app. I admit, I do a good deal of my journaling on paper, but then I transfer it to DayOne for storage, organization. Makes it easy to find old entries. I also have been going back through old notebooks and copying the journal entries into DayOne, so everything is in one place.

I have several different journals going - one for day to day journaling, and others for keeping track of favorite quotes, rough drafts of poems, ideas for my blog. It’s a great big notebook, and was exactly what I was looking for.

I signed up for the subscription model. I know some are unhappy at having to do so, but, having worked for a couple of internet companies I know how difficult it is to monetize apps and services. If I want an app with regular updates and bug-fixes, the company needs to make money to pay it’s developers. Not every app is a one person operation. So, I don’t mind paying. I think it’s the way the future is going to be - a fee for everything.

Definitely my most used app

Two and a half years ago I began journaling in Day One. And ever since I’ve started journaling almost every day, I have never regretted it. It’s so cool to go back in time and see what you were thinking or up to on certain days and I definitely would not have as many stories that I remember without the help of Day One. Espeically now with premium (yeah you have to pay a subscription but if you journal enough every year it’s definitely worth it) you can have as many journals as you want and as many photos as you want per entry it’s awesome. Plus the sync across devices makes it easy to journal from whatever apple device is near you.

I also have printed a book that sits next to me right now and I love having a physical copy of a full year of jounaling in my hands. Having it makes journaling digitally through this app even more worth it to me since I can have it printed and stored on my bookshelf for whenever I want to pull it out.

Oh and their customer support is awesome if you ever need any help or have issues feel free to send them a message (from iOS unfortunately and not built in on mac I think) and they respond within hours, sometimes even fifteen minutes it’s incredible.

Overall, a great app if you use it enough and if you haven’t journaled yet, this app makes it easy to do so. Trust me, it’s well worth your time.
