  • So Far, So Good

    By FOFS
    I'm still checking it out, but I love everything about it so far. A favorite for sure.
  • Reliable

    By Nbkcw
    The app slows down but ever crashes. It never loses entries. I use it across devices. I don't like all the space used by the photo or plus icon. So only 4 stars.
  • Cute app!

    By Euqaric
    I love that it syncs to so many places so I can create entries from past events on social media and stuff! Also LOVING the IFTTT support like crazy - I have it hooked up that it automatically creates an entry whenever I post to Instagram 😋
  • Best journal app out there

    By Ardash
    Best feature of the app? It reminds you to write in your journal. Like a good friend does. Ok back for an update. Still the best app out there for journaling. Ability to load from other social media is amazing. Developers keep innovating. Keep up the amazing work!!
  • Great app! Easy to use

    By Rebcharrr
    I journal with this app every day. It's so easy. Free with no adds! I love it! It saves everything, can be used on any iOS device (iPad or iPhone) and can be Touch ID password protected.
  • I can't recommend it any more

    By Busy Parents
    I just learned that DayOne is going to a subscription model. Not a choice I care to follow. I have to pay to keep my journal around. Instead of paying the high price once, you now get to pay it yearly. I would be happy to pay for new versions with features, but now we will be paying just to keep our data regardless of what happens in the app. Not for me. They still haven't added the version 1 features into version 2 but somehow they have found the time to build a subscription service. Time to find something I can trust with my life history. Old review... I was surprised when I installed the new version to find that they have adopted Google's material design patterns. The screenshots show a toolbar at the bottom of the screen which is no longer there. Now you get those annoying circle icons that Google uses everywhere that covers up part of the journal entry until you scroll and then they go away and come back as you scroll up or down. Please don't fall into the trap of copying Google's design. If I wanted Android I could go buy one. I don't want my iOS apps to look and feel like Android. Also, update your screen shots to show what the app currently looks like on an iPad. This has been by go-to app for Journaling for a couple of years. I really wish the publish feature would come back. It was a huge reason I bought the app and it's been missing for over a year with promises that it's "being worked on".
  • Love the interface, long time user

    By CaptCaveman
    I especially appreciate the support for automation and integration.
  • Nice update to a solid app

    By MellowFish
    I really enjoyed the previous version of this app and this update is worth the money.
  • Superb journal app

    By Chaps88usn
    Robust features, like tagging, and great UI make this the best journaling available! Have tried several apps and methods. . . Day One is best.
  • I will keep the original review.

    By Pazu Kong, Tibet
    Originally I rated it five stars, then 1 star, but I think it may not be very fair to the developers, so I better put back my original rating.
