  • Day One

    By queeryresponse
    Aggravating! Periodically this otherwise great app capriciously deletes numerous days of posts, but they become available again shortly. Today (12/7) it has deleted all but last 4 days out of 167 and they appear to be irretrievable. What’s the point of studiously maintaining a journal if it can be deleted without apparent recourse?
  • All entries (hundreds) dissapeared!

    By zeta1234567890
    I’m a software engineer Only two of hundreds entries are visible in the list, but when I click on them I don’t see the detail The counts of number of entries still are correct This is a bug The problem is in the list of entries, is corrupted.. I can acces entries through media list and swiping right or left sequentially
  • Simple Love✨💖✨

    By JBarrant
    This app is simple to use and with the ease of it being on my phone I have been more consistent in my journaling than I have in quite some time. I love that I can add a photo and use that as my inspiration to start. I love that my journal is always on me. Whenever a thought or feeling comes up, I can pull out my phone and dig deeper. No notebook to caring around or worry if someone finds it. Its also made it easier for me to be more honest. I'm not in fear of someone reading it because no one else looks at my phone. I'm very grateful for this app. ♥
  • Bad update

    By gordonross
    This last update has a serious bug. When you switch between journals some entries will disappear. Force quitting the app brings them back so there is no data loss, but is worrisome.
  • Me encanta

    I journal off and on all my life. But never keep up with them. DayOne keeps me on track and I can add entries from just about any app I use about anything I’m doing!! DayOne makes journaling convenient and easy!!
  • Great app, great support

    By Alisonknits
    After a lifetime of keeping paper journals I started using Day One last year. I still write on paper but now I just scan my journal entries and keep them in Day One, then throw out the paper. The app works very well and I love adding photos to my text entries. When I switched over to a new phone recently, I briefly had an issue getting my old entries synced onto my new phone, and I got excellent, immediate help with my problem, even though it was after hours and I was not expecting a response until the next day. I was super impressed with the support.
  • Lightening fast support

    By accepthim
    I have been using Day One for about 5 years first on my Mac and then my iPad. This morning had an issue that I couldn’t resolve so I sent a message through the app support. I was amazed that I received a response in minutes. Adam was definitely engaged and responsive to my issue. Great product, great support.
  • Missing a web component

    By WeeLassie79
    I’ve been a paid subscription user for a couple of years. The only reason I don’t give it 5 stars is because it’s missing a web component. I’d like the ability to make entries as they occur to me, and that is often at work where I can’t install the app on my work laptop. Of course I can use my phone, but it’s difficult to make longer entries that way.
  • Activity Feed Will Not Work

    By hwilderb
    I have contacted the developer a number of times, and they just keep saying they are working on making Activity Feed work. This is an important feature, and they just have not spent the time to make it work.
