Stil the Best

I use Day One on my Mac and iOS to keep track of films I’ve watched, how far and average pace of my runs, gratitude, quotes, and just a daily personal journal. Sync works great, and I’m looking forward to end to end encryption. The only reason I don’t give it five stars is that I find the UI of the new version to be slightly buggy. Every now and then the window just behaves oddly. However, it’s so few and far between that my enjoyment of the app is not at all impacted. It’s still fantastic, and I hope that Bloom Built keeps it around for a long, long time to come.

I’ve also started using it as a daily work journal, keeping track of everything I’m doing, what works and what doesn’t. Being able to quickly search for how I did something in the past is invaluble.

I subscribed to premium because I think the app is worth it, and because I want to do my part to make sure this company stays in business. I don’t really like the subscription models either, but if this helps keep an app that I use several times every day around, then I’m in.

Great app with 1 thing missing

I lvoe this app! It’s a very simple journal that I’m able to use on my macbook or iPhone! The only thing I would like is to be able to add videos to my logs. If I can already do that, let me know how! I’ve honestly not really looked too hard into finding it. haha All in all, though, it’s great for anyone wanting to pick up on journaling in a more modern way!

iOS version is great, Mac client is annoying

The Mac client continually prompts for authority to use current location. If I grant authorization or if I deny it, I still get asked 3 times every time the app launches. Then, if I try to use the helper app to make a quick entry, I get prompted for location 3 more times. This is using the most current update to the application.

Having said all of this, the iOS app is fantastic…bug free, and is a delight to use. Need to chase the bugs out of the Mac version.
