  • Love it

    My mind races at all times, this is the perfect outlet for me!
  • Great tool

    Enjoy it
  • A request to address a potentially wonderful idea

    By Russ Tibbitts
    I sure wish this app would give me the option to have previous entries from previous years pop up each day. For example, today is July 18. Wouldn’t it be wonderful if I could (in my settings) have the app notify me, or email me my July 18 entry for last year and/or for other previous years? I know a journal can and will benefit my posterity, but what good is a journal to ME if I never read my entries again?
  • Day one

    I’ve been using this app for years, and it’s wonderful! I wish they would perfect he printing of the books to include the commentary with the photo it belongs to, as well as auto adjust photos so it so much wasted space. Also wish there was a desktop option! The app itself is phenomenal!
  • Fabulous, better if Apple Pencil worked

    By Kathleen808
    I’ve used Day One for a few years. It is great for capturing ideas and experiences. It would be excellent if it allowed handwriting. I’m very used to using Apple Pencil in many other apps and find it frustrating to not be able to use it with Day One. I hope you work on this. If not, I may keep looking for another journaling app.
  • Practice

    By 🇮🇹 Josie
    I am enjoying this app . The best is being able to practice using it 👏before my trip ...I definitely will end up with a book, as I will be traveling to Italy. Keeping my memories always .
  • Great program

    I love this diary. It is so easy to journal and add pictures during the day. I like how it syncs over all my devices. Jay keeps getting better.
  • Nice with limitations

    By uclalumni00
    I can’t figure out if there’s a way to print journals with 2 or more photos per page, if I only have 1 photo per entry. It’s printing one photo per page which is not a god use of space nor a cool layout (basically no layout). Also, wish there was a way to share and add or invite editors to a journal. For example so that my husband and I can both enjoy and contribute and get notifications to update to the same journal about our life together as first time parents to our son.
  • Great app

    By edu1203
    It would be great to have a feature that you can add people to your notes when you are writing about them. I use Tags, but it would be nicer to have that option
  • Good...most of the time

    By Tdj2591
    When it works correctly I like it. When it acts quirky, I can’t stand it. I’ve been using it daily for over a year. My biggest gripe is losing paragraphs of information while I am writing. Poof! Suddenly it’s gone! I save often but it will sometimes drop my text before I save it, which is really frustrating. Or, it will show the text in the side panel yet the display for that day is blank, or vice versa. Quite often, there is a significant delay between when I type the letters and when the app shows the text on screen. I can type a full sentence then sit back and watch it display the letters slowly one by one. It’s nerve wracking! It seems that the apps synch on my devices only when the app is open simultaneously on each device. The support team is great about responding. Usually, they are aware of the problems and are working on them. I’ve been told to reload the app which sometimes helps and sometimes doesn’t. The problems are intermittent. Sometimes it works perfectly but most of the time I have some performance issue with the app.
