App Reviews

  • Love it, small bugs

    By Clarkezone
    Love this app it’s great for diarying every day. I’ve had quite a few crashes and other issues like reminders not kicking in and inserting items if you open the app rather than launching from the notification.
  • Micro subscriptions not good

    By Honest American
    Same as others. Plenty of cloud providers like Dropbox or iCloud. Seems like a money play not technical reason.
  • I want to like DayOne but . . .

    By daveterry
    The issue for me is that it doesn't sync with iCloud, a cloud service I already subscribe to. Yes, it's true that iCloud has had issues in the past but it's very robust now. It's also encrypted in transit and at rest. The subscription model is an issue with me too. Especially since the three day outage and loss of data around the time I signed up. Also, the sync between the Mac and iPad was always running into non-connect issues. I worked with the developer on this, sent many dumps, but nothing was resolved. When I discussed the issues I was having with my devices not syncing (iPad, iPhone, MacBook) I discovered that the developer didn't have five 9s (high availability) and this was scary to me. Also, the files are not stored individually but rather in a location I can't access. This ties me to an export function should I decide to move journaling apps. Although I'd been with DayOne since the beginning and upgraded to DayOne's subscription service, I decided to cut my losses and move to iA Writer which supports sync with iCloud (and it's encryption) and write individual files in markdown (no special format) thereby future-proofing my 20 years of journals. I can at any time view my journals/journal entries and open them with any markdown or text editor. Apple's new "Shortcuts" (workflows) makes adding a new entry or updating an existing one a breeze. For me this is the best journaling solution. Your mileage may vary.
  • Daily merge, please?

    By DrPeril
    There has been a lot of good developments lately but DayOne is still, conspicuously missing an obvious, and I would think simple, feature: merge daily entries. I understand it might not be a desire of everyone, so maybe an on/off toggle, but merging multiple entries on the same day would make my journals feel cleaner, make finding specific data easier, and remove the blank entries that are saved if you accidentally tap new and then back out. Seriously, saving empty data is a laughable bug. Otherwise it’s good!
  • Wonderful Life Logging

    By JupiterFlux
    I love Day One, I don’t do a whole lot of writing myself, or even audio recording, I have “photojournalistic tendencies”, that is I tend to just take pictures of everything. Or short videos. I used to do short text notes in iOS’ Notes App to complement my pictures, and I’ll admit, I still do on occasion, but I’m doing more and more in Day One, mostly because it’s easier to associate with a picture. I also love the location recording for notes, used to be I’d take pictures of just whatever wall or floor my phone was facing simply to record a location to accompany a text note in Notes, now, don’t have to. I still don’t write a whole lot, but the convenience of logging things, like weather and location has encouraged me to use Day One more. I highly recommend trying it for anyone who’s meticulous like I am about recording all the little details. Only thing I would improve is having the ability to save location data forever, currently location data is only saved for six weeks unless you manually save an entry for a place. I’d love to see that location history saved for forever.
  • Can No Longer Edit Markdown

    By brutek
    I have been a longtime user of Day One (many years). One of my main uses has been to write my own Markdown or store my favorite web clippings in Markdown. Access to text-only Markdown editing is gone. Now I cannot edit and create new links within text. It is now a pop-up system to edit links. Headings can no longer be edited as the pop up menu doesn’t show what the heading was in the first place. It saddens me when great software gets dumbed down for the masses and removes core features after years of working well. As capitalism unfortunately has a greed forcing function, the masses are served and everything eventually drops to the lowest common denominator, and not necessarily the simplest UI. If Day One would allow a setting to go back to real text editing, I would stick with it. Now it is becoming a narrower app that is only used for a single purpose. It may soon have auto-filling checklists with background meditative music and deviate to pushing mono-emotional states of happiness rather than allowing a sad or angry entry. On the only positive note, they left their export options, which I will now explore to their fullest extent. Goodbye old friend.
  • Crooks

    By day last
    I had this app for quite awhile and it always would sync between all my devices. I haven’t used it for quite some time and now they are saying I need to pay a monthly membership to sync. Now I don’t have access to all my entries. Where is it?? Crooks
  • Finally!! Full Screen on iPad.

    By LisaJill75
    Now I do not have to resort to other applications for writing anything. Have always needed the least options possible to stay focused. This is the final game changer that helped me decide whether to stick with DayOne Subscription. Of course it was probably going to happen subscription or not, but I value my data. Holding out a 5th star in case of bugs. But really, it’s 5 stars right now.
  • Annoying Glitch

    By bUrNNiNNaToR
    There is a glitch when using “text replacement” shortcuts. There is no way for me to contact you directly so I’m leaving a 1 star review until this issue is resolved. You can contact me for more information on your app’s glitch. This is only occurring in your app and not anywhere else in iOS 12. Your last update has caused a glitch when using text replacement.
  • If you have the original don't upgrade

    By Dissatisfied 88
    I used the original for years and loved it. I recently upgraded and the new app could not handle my third party keyboard and now simply crashes everytime I try to open the app. I'm looking at other apps now instead.
