App Reviews

  • The Soul of My iPad Pro

    By Whalebone66
    I’ve been an almost daily user of Day One since it’s launch a few years ago & am now a paid Premium member - and have loved the app from the beginning - with a few bumps along the way (by hey, that’s life - if it weren’t for the bumps we wouldn’t enjoy the bump free days) - anyway, this is more of a personal “thank you” to Bloom Built Inc. - Day One is more of an app - it’s the soul of my iPad Pro, almost every day I add to my journal & read the memories that I added from past years...they bring me back to those fun, challenging, sad & happy times in my life...and the interface is beautifully simple &’s an interface that gets out of your way and allows you the fun of writing down your memories & enjoying the ones you’ve already recorded...spending time with this app you get the impression that the team at Bloom Built not only knows how to make the complex simple, they also love the art of journaling...Day One is one of those rare apps that becomes almost an extension of your soul, I’ve been amazed at how much I enjoy the art of journaling...thank you Bloom Built Inc. for one of the AppStore’s Gold Standard Apps....can’t wait to see where Day One keeps going...
  • 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.
  • My entire entry was deleted

    By bridgetbates17
    I like Day One and have used it off and in for a few years now. I just redownloaded it a few days ago and wrote my first new entry this morning. It took me about 30 minutes and after I was done I was searching for a way to indent the paragraphs, so I selected the entire entry and was surveying the options when I accidentally pasted a link I had copied. Everything was deleted because I pasted the link when the entire entry was selected. Here is why I’m giving two stars: there is not an undo button or back button. I feel as though it is imperative and, quite frankly, obvious that a journaling app, centered around writing and composition would have a feature that allows you to undo the most recent change to an entry. I haven’t journaled in months and this easily avoidable accident does not make me very optimistic about trying it again any time soon, especially with Day One if there is a chance this could happen again. I would happily continue using the app if an undo feature was added, but for now I am too shaken up from those memories being deleted and having no way of getting them back to use Day One again without doubting that this will happen to any of my future entries.
  • Upload issues with multiple devices

    By Chip2.0
    I think the layout and the format is fine but the device needs to work on how it handles uploads. I’ll use an example of an issue: I begin an entry on my iPhone but then I go to finish it on my Mac. Should be no problem with cloud storage. What’s happening is the app will often re-recognize uploads from other devices as your working on editing an entry and will completely overwrite your work with the previous upload. So in my example, if I’m picking it back up on my Mac. After 10 mins of typing my uploads will resync and it wipe all my work I was doing. And this is a very frustrating issue. The only way I’ve prevented this is by closing all other instances of Day One when working on another device. But this could be fixed by having user prompts for conflicting iCloud uploads for similar entries. I have seen other apps simply have a message pop up saying they detected multiple instances of the same thing and asking for me to choose which one to continue working on or delete. Why is it so hard to utilize that kind of feature? Anyways that’s a big issue for me. Especially when your typing something that’s a journal replacing pen and paper thats subscription based.
  • Not good

    By Buyerdisg
    This is the first journal app I’m trying to use. I don’t understand the positive comments. This app has a lot of glitches and a wierd design. I have never seen journal entries done backwards. You can’t change the design. You have to look very closely for the date, as they are in tiny print, and the only large part of the date is the day - 05. 05 of what? Just made an entry on March 2, it doesnt show up at the top, I made another one. Then found both amidst the entries made in February, before February 3d, because there was no entry made on 02 February, the designers desided let’s stick 02 March entry in there. I want to clearly see the full date the entry was made on or have an option to change the design - if someone wants to only see the day of the month, let them have it, but I want to see the month and the year, and have it run chronologically forward. For some reason the designers think that the time and place where it’s made is more important. Hello most entries by most peope are made at home, the same location every time. Why half the screen is taken by a plus sign and a camera? Why one of the lines tells me how many entries I made and pictures taken? Does it matter to anyone who keeps a journal? Also has glitches with fonts and formatting.
  • Subscription = NO thanks

    By Verticaltakeoff
    I will not use this app because I don't believe it's safe to have such personal data on the servers of the app developers. If they bring back iCloud I will use this app again. They say the data can be better encrypted on their servers but if you google "iCloud encryption" it clearly states that the data is encrypted in transit and on the server. So, why not give us the option to use iCloud? I used iCloud sync on the previous version with no issues at all. In fact I was better able to secure my private data as it was automatically copied to my Mac and backed up with Time Machine. I couldn’t have asked for a more secure, fault tolerant way to store my private data. No thanks. I don't want to pay any more small monthly fees. Guess I'll just make a folder in the notes app and store my journals there. Too bad, this had potential to be a good app with a loyal following. For me any "subscription model" service is just a constant reminder to re-evaluate weather or not I really use a service enough to make it worth it. Usually the answer is "NO" after the first payment. I saved off my old journals to PDF files, encrypted them and stored them on iCloud. I won't be using this app again unless thy decide to bring back iCloud storage / synching.
  • Must have for those who want a convenient, beautiful journaling experience!!

    By Ccccgyu
    I never write reviews but I am for this one because I just want to say that I LOVE THIS APP!! Particularly the ability to print the books. Just got my first one in the mail and it is BEAUTIFUL (and it was effortless to make!) I loved all the details like the location and weather. I love the ability to have multiple journals! (Easily worth the $30 subscription I paid back in January) This has made journaling so much easier (a huge New Years resolution for me that has been easy to keep because I always have my phone with me) and then I can easily get a beautiful hard copy to share with friends and family. I used to do a blog to book program, but I would spend hours rearranging everything and not to mention the inconvenience that came with only journaling when logged into the blogging platform. Get the subscription, it is so worth it if you are serious about journaling properly!!
  • NEW FEATURE: Must now pay to sync between devices!

    By Jonitart
    This app was amazing, was recommended to me by a family member who used it for years and I would occasionally help them and record and edit entries for them. I recently decided to purchase the app for myself and noticed only after I wasted the money purchasing it, that new users must pay yearly to sync thru day one and there is no iCloud sync option like there was previosly. They literally went out of their way to redesign the app so they could make more money despite complaints from many consumers. I will find another solution. It’s a shame because this was a great app, that’s why I gave it two stars instead of one for the greedy developer. Most people pay Apple for extra iCloud storage, asking them to pay the developer for the same functionality is a disgrace. They can use whatever lame excuse they want, that it’s going to benefit for future software features. Then charge for those features when they come out, if people want them that bad they will spend the money then! Bad business. Typical growth for the sake of growth has taken this app down an awful path.
  • Not surprised

    By Macorin
    Day One has always been a solid app with good design and functionality for a journaling app. I quickly became a fan years ago buying both the iOS and Mac versions. Then they (like many others) went the subscription route. I understand the subscription model and the need for developers to earn a living so they can (hopefully) continue to develop and maintain the apps we live and use. That said, the subscription fee for Day One is quite steep at $25/year. That’s like buying a new version of a desktop app every single year forever (or as long as they maintain it). Momento (their primary competitor) by comparison is charging $4/year! They say the subscription offers the desktop app (now free), but I had already bought that. They say it offers unlimited journals, photos and syncing, but I already owned those features too. To be honest, I don’t really know if I want to spend $25/year for this product, but now, since I have purchased the subscription, I’m asked to after a certain number of taps over and over again. It’s like an advertisement over and over and it’s quite annoying to not be able to use an app I’ve spent a considerable amount of time and money on.

    By Cpprboom
    I absolutely love this app! It’s easy to use and convenient! My favorite features include: 1. The automatic time/date/weather/location date it puts in and how if I forget to journal an event and days later I go back to do so, it remembers those facts and asks if I would like to attach them! Of course! It’s neat looking back at entries and seeing the weather, location and time. Gives more depth to the memory. 2. A Mac App!! For longer journal entries or more reflective entries, I always prefer to type on a computer and I love that they have a desktop version that syncs so fluidly with my ios one. 3. Multiple Journals and tags! I love sorting my journals! Tags are nice to sort but the addition of being able to tag AND have other journals is great! Features I wish were available: 1. Ability to add movies!!!! Pictures are great to look back on memorable moments, but videos add so much more to a memory! That’s really the only feature, I feel, they are currently lacking. I haven’t used the ability to print my journals but I LOVE that they have that feature now! I was thinking they should have something like that! And I don’t currently subscribe as finances don’t allow right now, but I wouldn’t mind when our budget allows so I can insert more photos in an entry because I understand supporting the developer. They really do a great job at maintaining this app and they have done a phenomenal job creating it! Love it!
