  • A daily part of my life.

    By BenKSF
    Started using DayOne after getting off Facebook but still wanting a way to document my life. I’m now addicted. The cross platform/device capabilities means I can journal from multiple sources (laptop, iPad, iPhone) and have it all sync in one place. Also love the ability to integrate data from other sources like Strava, Instagram and others. Can’t recommend it highly enough. Customer support is great too!

    Day One has definitely become my mobile journal. I enjoy every aspect of it, & ive yet to experience any glitches.
  • Great, with flaws

    By lisahoney831
    Great app, has some neurotic tendencies. Moving photos around and thinking I’m constantly at my neighbors house. Otherwise I love it.
  • Accessible with iPhone and Voiceover

    By Paula-Jayne
    I've been using this app with my iPhone running Voiceover. I find it to be pretty accessible for daily journaling. I'm glad someone recommended it.Paula-Jayne
  • Best journaling app

    By Kismet00831
    I’ve used just about all of these journaling apps and this is by far my favorite. Worth every penny. Constant improvements, responsive help team, beautiful and customizable ui. So happy they added support for the Apple Pencil. They really listen to the user base. Go ahead and download!
  • No camera zoom?!

    By manolosf
    Why the bloody hell can I access my camera but I can’t F’ing ZOOM?!?
  • Not bad

    By Saniol the Army
    It’s pretty good but every single option that I use requires premium version and since I’m a teenager, i really cannot pay for them. But at least it’s more useful than other journal apps
  • My #1 favorite app of all time

    By starmrc
    I pray it’s never discontinued!! I would lose so much data, pictures, and notes If you are interested in getting a journal app this is the one! You can have multiple journals I use one for work even one for daily pictures I rarely say This ... the app is perfect
  • Love this App. BUT

    By Anglie12
    I love the features and ease of this app. But I have been having problems with freezing. All of a sudden I will pull up a picture and I can’t do anything with it. Perhaps its the user’s mistake but I don’t know how to fix it. Sometimes it lets me use my ipad to log in and other times, only my keyboard. Any ideas to help with this? Otherwise, love this app.
  • sync does not work

    By jeftay
    I’ve used Day One for years, and only now just switched to the premium version because classic stopped working properly. Premium doesn’t sync — entries on my MacBook Pro don’t show up on my phone. Support said to wait for the update and hope for the best, which doesn’t inspire a lot of confidence. I’ve also found that the new email an entry feature doesn’t work properly, either. I’ve told support about this, too, but was told that they hadn’t seen this before and I haven’t heard anything since. Needless to say, I’m disappointed that an app I’m paying money for is so buggy.
