Wonderful Journaling App
I absolutely love this app! Helps me log important moments in my life as they happen or later when I’ve got down time. It’s much easier and more convenient than using a social network or written journal. The coming Publish option is a really welcome feature and will make this my main social sharing app as well. Syncing with Dropbox has worked flawlessly with my rather large and photo intensive journal so I’ve really no complaints. I absolutely love the map view as well since I travel a lot. Being able to back date, tag and search for or use photo locations has been invaluable as I’m no longer in a rush to record things immediately. I can enjoy the moment and add it to my digital life later. This is the one app I own that I can truly say has improved my quality of life. Thanks to the Day One crew for the constant improvements and support! Well done!
P.S. To the guys wearing tin foil on their heads who think the NSA cares about your life, they don’t. Nowhere in the app description does it say it’s designed to keep top secret information safe from the aliens. If you want encryption then encrypt your Mac hard drive and back-up drives! I’m perfectly content with the security provided by my Mac and Dropbox.
Great App for journal keeping
First of all, if you would like to have a very private secure information keeping note book. You should not use any kind of third party app available in the app store. This is not a good way of storing extremely confidential info. However, this is a good app for jotting down your everyday thoughts, journals about your life, and some other notes and essays that would come up in your mind. Especially the reminder feature with quick writedown system is extremely useful. I kept writing down so I can think about my life at least once everyday. Also it keeps your journals like a facebook or twitter timeline which is also easy to see. This app keeps up your history like a personal SNS. I am very glad that I actually invested to the app. To people who would like to continue their habit of writing everyday, this is one of the best choices they can make. The only drawback is that the numbering system and fonts are not that satisfactory. However, it suits the main purpose very well. Journal with reminder. What else do you need?
Goofball Reviews about Encryption do not help
Personally I'm getting tired of the goofball "reviewers" trying to shame the Dev into 'doing encryption'... encryption slows things down, and D1 is *not* for your financial records or encrypted notes. 1Password is! If you require moderate security, use the existing tools on your devices:
1/ Mac? FileVault. Full Disk Encryption built into OSX. iOS? Data Protection. USE IT.
2/ DropBox and iCloud both encrypt data on their servers. But cloud solutions are not infallible. Same issue with EverNote and everyone else.
3/ The UNENCRYPTED TO THE USER files can be useful in the way NVALT files are, they can be manipulated by scripts like Brett Terpstra's slogger. If 'double encrypted'...? Not so much.
So, in conclusion, before you "ask" (more like demand) that a Developer 'give you a feature' MAKE SURE you're using tools already built into the OS, and services that you use to sync.
And Developer? Issue some guidance if you don't like goofy reviews. Sometimes that helps.
