1875 Days of Day One

I’ve been loving the Day One experience since 2012, and the app continues to improve with time. The updates are thoughtful, and I’m currently loving the feature of ‘On this day, one year ago’, etc. Also adding geo-tagged photos and maps is really great for travel journaling. My only hiccup with the app has been synching between devices, and some issues with Apple ID. I think I’ve ironed it out with a re-install, but the Apple ID issues will need tech support. Despite these issues, I have not experienced data loss with the seperated out back up process being pretty easily accessible for storage on Dropbox.

Love This App, Hate the Price of the Mac App

I absolutely love Day One. I've been using it for over a year, and I love being reminded of entries 'on this day' in previous years.

I started using the app when my husband bought the app awhile back so I had it on iPhone/iPad via family sharing. He was frustrated when the latest version (Day One 2) came out days later and he had to rebuy it.

The cost of this app on Mac seems kind of high IMO, but I'm glad I paid it. I love updating entries on all devices, though iPad and Mac most of all.

I love Day One

I really did not want to upgrade (not another cloud!) but I am glad I did. The new features are great and I am learning something new every day.
