Day One Journal, Full Featured and Well Designed

I have used this app since it’s first version and have found it to be very useful on my Mac, iPad and iPhone (the app will sync to all your devices when set up to do so). The new version allows for dragging and dropping (multiple) images from Finder, Safari and Photos into your journal entry. It is one of the features I wished for from the previous version. Search features, time and date stamp, tagging and editing make setting up your entries a breeze. A well done app and well worth the investment on any device.

This app will not disappoint. It is full-featured, aestetically pleasing and a great way to catalog personal entries or even those related to work and/or tasks. The search and categorization features make it very easy to find previous entries. Highly recommend.

What’s wrong with the location service?

This app is one of the few apps that I decided to pay for. So far I am quite satisfied with the purchase because I haven’t seen much of a comparable apps that are as good as this journal app. However, (I am not sure if it’s a problem with my computer) the service location isn’t working. The reason I paid for this app is not only because I do not want any advertisements in using the app and writing the journal but also it was because I wanted to save the locations where I’ve been and stuff for a record. However, it’s not working at all for some reason.


With constant improvements to the application and an already functional, aesthetically pleasing one, this Day One is a must have for me. The reason I’m giving it four stars however, is because it’s quite pricey. For only less than $10 on iOS the desktop application is fairly expensive for something that doesn’t offer any more features than the mobile application.
