Jotting down your thoughts can be very therapeutic, especially if you do it daily. When you are having a horrible day you can write it down and sometimes just vent saying things to your diary or journal that you can’t say out loud. At the same time, when you are having a wonderful day it is a great feeling to be able to say so and even go back to read about it when the next day is darker. DayGram provides a clean, easy way for you to do this. The DayGram app gives you a way to write down everything you are feeling, every day with an intuitive interface. A journal app should not be complicated and this one makes capturing your thoughts simple. Tap a button to add your entry for the day or edit it to write more. Then you can view your entire timeline of entries, checking previous days, months, or years, if you like _ AppAdvice

Ratings and Reviews
Minimalistic app designed to build journaling habits.
There is an elegance to DayGram.
It allows me to have the timeline benefits of a "journal" without running into a plethora of interface distractions. It can be backed up via iCloud and Dropbox.
Journal apps blare with statistics; how many entries, how many today, options to add hash tags, share to social media, add photos. I don't need all that.
With DayGram I get a date stamp, a time stamp option and a blank page, thank you.
DayGram lends to writing minimalism—often a simple snapshot of the day or an event, but longer entries are just fine. In the rare case an image is desired, the option sits innocuously at the bottom right of the page as an almost invisible icon.
The two things DayGram lacks are a "dark mode" for nighttime writing and, at least, a couple more font options. I'd pay to have these options added. The holy grail, personally, would be the option to add a custom font.
In terms of the In-App purchase:
I would point out that almost no one wants "themes" that involve generic stock photography backgrounds. That may have been true 5 or 6 years ago. Now most people prefer to add their own image—if they even want one BEHIND their writing. This strange option is the only place DayGram really goes off the rails of its elegant minimalism.
Still can be better
This is more practical than conventional paper diaries, just because you can find and access to all your notes in a timeline, place time stamps automatically, and it keeps it very simple. But it would really make it better than using conventional diaries if we could attach images to our entries, maybe voice notes... Those are a big plus that really changes the game and would take conventional diaries users to using this app in my opinion. This is the only app that I’ve used and haven’t deleted it because it’s overcharged, good point for you guys, but the feature of adding pictures or voice notes wouldn’t necessarily ruin your minimalist style and I find that it is actually useful.
