  • Awesome!

    By Ava07111111117
    I’m young, and I was never able to keep up with a journal. Until now. Busy day? One that I wanted to write about but I didn’t have time? No problem. I just write the day after and change the date! What I think is AMAZING is that if you don’t have premium (which I don’t) the app is still awesome! I also played around with the settings and found that you change change the font!! Being a girl who loves to make everything my own, this FREE function is pretty amazing. Would recommend to literally EVERYONE of ALL ages.
  • Diary for a 90s baby

    By bwestffl
    I use this app to keep not my todo list or reminders but as a diary or personal journal for self reflection. It has been fun to look back and see how I was feeling day to day. I have tried many apps like this but this ease of simplicity in this app is something worth trying.
  • Perfect

    By DiaryDork
    This is the best diary/journal app out there. I’ve tried different apps but always come back to this one.
  • Surprisingly Useful

    By Simple Theory
    I like this app, Day One. I am using it as a personal journal but you could use it in your business day, like project planning and meeting notes. It can stamp entries with date/time, location, and weather. It has the note taking functions that people now need: audio, photo, and drawing. I am using it to note things during my day and to ruminate. I see myself creating a pdf of each month’s entries. The design is thoughtful and uncomplicated. I enjoy using this app. It’s array of features open many possibilities beyond Dear Diary journaling.
  • WannaBe SaaS Devs, take note

    By TreoRenegade
    This is the FIRST time I actually smiled at seeing an SaaS notice, AND jumped on it! These folks rolled out new GENUINELY useful “LawdHaMercy!” smile-inducing features, even dropping the annual price for a reasonably short period of time. NO empty promises. NO encyclopedic excuses. NO lies during roll-out. THIS is how you coax more money, people — treat us with respect, to get respect. Day One team, my hat’s off to you. Just imported my IG. Happy Campers R Us! I’m wondering: only one IG? I’ll figure it out. And puhLeeeeease → write a book or article to give your colleagues a MUCH needed clue.
  • Crash and delete multiple?

    By WYQ-1996-2013.5.31
    I added import Spotify save to library music feature a long time ago and disabled that. Somehow the app synced my data and hundreds of now songs I added to Spotify library showed up. Ruined my journal. The app doesn’t have delete multiple function. Imagine clicking one by one for hundreds of times. Fix it!!!
  • 4.5 for what its worth ...

    By Finesse P.
    The app is wonderful. Like it’s such a seamless fit into my daily life; I just wish every app wasn’t designed to make money. Having to pay to have separate “folders” seems .. pointless. Otherwise no complaints, and I love the design.
  • Getting better. Still slow pics upload.

    By JT Music
    Bugs are less frequent but pictures still slow to upload.
  • Great app and great tech support

    By bombarde32
    I normally don’t write reviews, but my experience with this app has been so wonderful. I have been a DayOne user for at least 5 years. This is, hands down, the best app for journaling in terms of features and ease of use. Not only that, but tech support has been equally great. I accidentally lost some data when switching encryption modes as I had a bad internet connection. However, Adam at customer support responded promptly to my emails and restored all of my journals! I’d give this app 10 stars if possible!
  • Avoid. Use plain text files instead.

    By jhabdas
    I used to keep my IRL and dream journals in plain text files named by date stored securely on my own computer. In 2014 I gave Day One Classic (the free version) a try. I created 360 entries and synced them to iCloud—which the EFF now reports uses fake encryption. Whether it has occurred or not this app has led many to possible data collection under the unconstitutional PRISM program made possible by the Bush administration in the United States following 9/11. I will never again be so foolish as to not use text files to keep my intimate thoughts private and away from prying eyes such as those of post-Jobs Apple, the US government or a capitalist institution interested in coercing me into their revenue stream by attempting to sell me privacy with potentially buggy E2E encryption. Bottom line, I wouldn’t use this software even if I was paid to do so.
