    Self-awareness is an important part of conflict resolution. Instead of arguing back and forth in an unproductive loop, you can break away for a 30 minute journaling session and return to the conversation with a clear mind.

    If you've traveled over 20 different countries, it might be hard to remember when you went and whom with. Here you can look back and see your notes, pictures, and diary additions for every day.

    I love to write, as an over-thinker and someone who ruminates on things a lot it’s something very therapeutic. It’s nice to write down a reflection of how your day was, a good or bad moment of your day, something that triggered you, someone that hurt you or about the past. Oh the past! I could write for days. What’s really great about this app is that it has a feature where you can create a passcode for the app or even choose to unlock it with your Face ID like your phone. I’ve tried other apps that don’t have that, or they do have it but you have to upgrade to premium for it but not this one. As a kid I grew up with very strict people around me, and privacy was something I didn’t have most of the time, I’m now 18 and have a cellphone that I bought and pay each month, so there’s that just for reference. I always wanted to start journaling but because of the lack of privacy I help myself back but this has helped me a lot, I feel safe I feel that my thoughts are safe and that I can express myself and actually write what I want to write about my life. The cool thing is you can also add pictures and audio notes, it keeps track of how many days in a row you’ve journaled to keep you motivated and to keep a streak going. 10/10 for me. I hope to learn to process my thoughts and emotions through journaling to then be able to learn and be more aware of myself, heal and grow as a person. Thank you Day One!

    hi guys, thanks for improving the app.. but i wanna point out some things. Make timeline page have a customizable ‘action’ button, because i wanted to just click once to pull a video and start recording me talking for 30 mins about my life. Currently there are photos, audio and text. Make it customizable. This will be very helpful to truckers, delivery drivers that works alone but don’t want to fiddle a lot of buttons just to record. And second, after recording a video, can you label the ‘input title’ field with ‘write your title’, because right now, there’s only blank which confuses the user to navigate the title field. Also the timeline, it’s way too cramped especially the bottom part where you’ll see the time of the audio, address and weather, can you put a separator between them, cause right now they are just connected in one line, makes the UI jarring to read. also for audio clips, put an icon on the right hand side, and maybe put the length of the audio overlaying the icon. instead of cramping it at the bottom of the journal entry in the timeline view.. make it look beatiful and simple, easy to navigate.. but i really love what youre trying to do, its the best journal app there is… i would love to subscribe if these features are available… theres more that i would love to input but its getting too long. Do you have suggestions email? Thank you, i’ll rate it 5 stars for you guys

    I truly enjoy this app, as I use it to count gifts and blessings each day. I can add a photo a day, and after a year it will remind me of gifts recorded a year ago. So far I have only used the free app, and I have all I need right now. However I can step up my game if I ever want to. Perfect!
  • PDF format has improved- Thank you! May 12, 2020

    By Chachaflakies
    THANK YOU for continuing to improve the PDF format! Just as I was about to give up and look for a journaling method elsewhere, the PDF format was improved and now there are multiple pictures per page, and the flow and format is a lot nicer. I also like that the text is larger and one page can even fit up to 9 pictures. It still isn’t perfect. If I could give the suggestion to make the date and time font darker and maybe a little bigger, it would be near to perfect. That is hardly visible, especially once printed out. But the picture flow has dramatically improved, and I applaud you! I am fine paying a subscription as long as these updates are being made, because I appreciate the continuous work to improve the customer’s experience. So far, to the best of my knowledge, these improvements haven’t been made to the book printing, but I assume they are working on that as well. Thank you and please, for your subscribers, continue with these improvements! It’s the only thing that keeps me hanging on to this app because a physical, printed copy is so important to me, and though I love everything else about the app digitally, I would be forced to look elsewhere if I wasn’t satisfied with the printing (via book or PDF). I’m sure I’m not the only customer who feels this way. Thank you for hearing me out!

    I'm super stoked to have Day One on Android, it was always my favorite journaling app on ios! Although, I think it could use some work on this platform. You get all the basics of the app, and they typically work well (scaling on tablets meh). But what I would really like to see would be the ability to embed files and videos in entries, and for the voice recording feature to be added. These features are very important to me, and once added to the Android app I will happily rate it 5 stars :)

  • A request to address certain problems Feb 26, 2018

    By Maazismail
    I’ve been using your app for years, definitely one of the best apps I have ever used. However lately I have been facing problems. I have an iPhone 8. Often times when I copy or past something, the app would lag a lot and then crash and I would need to restart it. Another huge problem I have is that when I want to edit an entry, the app would instantly take me to the bottom of the entry instead of the place I already was. I write long entries so if I’m in the middle of something and notice a typo, I don’t want to fix it because it will take me all the way to the bottom. And if I slide up and tap on the text I want to edit, most of the time the app just keeps taking me back to the bottom. I think I have to double tap it sometimes and make sure I am not sliding to get it to select the text I want. It is so frustrating for me, why can this not work like google docs where it just stays at the same spot I click edit instead of going all the way down. Please, I have been a loyal customer for a very long time and I hope you fix this, or either give me an option to disable this ‘function’. Lastly, I would greatly appreciate if you guys would give us the option to sync with iCloud/Dropbox again, if we’re paying for something we really should get the option of where we want to save our data.
  • PERFECT, EXCEPT ONE MAJOR ISSUE... Apr 27, 2020

    By sadsia
    My favorite journaling app. I was never able to commit to journaling— I’ve tried keeping physical journals, I’ve tried other apps, but this app was the only one that was able to keep me committed to writing. It offers so many useful tools and options, like templates, the ability to add photos, etc. (I do have the paid version btw.) There is one problem I have with this app though, and that’s privacy. The app does allow you to have a passcode, but I’ve found that if you go to your device’s home screen and use the spotlight search to search on your device, you can actually use keywords to search for your entries and read them from there (therefore bypassing app’s passcode). For example, if you wrote an entry about apples, you could search “apples” on your device and the entry will show up there, where you can read the title of the entry, as well as a good portion of that entry’s content. This has actually gotten me into a good bit of trouble at home because someone else was able to search for keywords on my device and read my private entries from my device’s home screen. I really, truly hope this is fixed. I love this app and would hate to have to stop using it for this reason.

  • best journal I’ve had Apr 8, 2021

    By g3ns4v4g3
    I got this at the end of 2020 and so far it’s the only journal I’ve been able to commit to. Physical journals can get tiring to carry around, longer entries get difficult to write and start to loose their meaning once I start to shorten phrases or words. Digital journals are great to be able to to carry around and have wherever you go, as well as the ease of typing but a lot of them feel tacky. Day one has such great and easy layout, with good daily questions that don’t feel cheesy to answer when you need some inspiration. I purchased the premium version yesterday and it doesn’t lack anything for me. I’m using two journals at the moment, one for just everything, and a 2nd to print out in a year with more important memories or ideas. The app has so many features without making it feel bloated or overwhelming to look at or use, it’s just a simple writing experience. I also really love how you can see where you took an entry/photo. It really adds to the experience to be able to look back on where I’ve been and what happened in different spots around town. I hope to use this journal for years to come, thanks to the developers for really making a great app.
  • Always looking for better, Day One always wins Apr 15, 2021

    By JoshCanHelp
    I’ve been journaling and digitally archiving for decades now. If I could retire right now I’d do it a lot more but, in the meantime, it’s important to me to take and keep snapshots of my and my family’s life as the years roll by. I stopped using Facebook and Instagram years ago and journaling has been a great replacement. I still have motivation to take pictures of semi-ordinary events, along with a note about what happened. Beyond that, it’s helped me to see a picture of my overall mental health year by year and identify things I struggle with over and over. Day One has been a near-perfect companion for the last several years. The product is both easy and fun to use and it’s rare that I think of something I want but don’t have. The updates are thoughtful and have yet to encounter an issue of any kind. I would love to see more support for the more technical folks, like a first-class command line API, but I know that I’m probably in a tiny minority of folks that care about it. I would also love to see automatic bi-directional linking, like Roam Reaearch. I constantly try new note taking and journaling tools and keep coming back to Day One!

    Finally got the upgrade & it keeps crashing. After typing a few lines it starts glitching. I have to task kill; then sometimes it'll erase half the sentence I was working on. This goes on until i finish my entry. This only started the day I began my free trial. I tried canceling during the trial period & I couldn't. Very disappointing!

    By Alyson Robles-Hill
    This app is awesome...on iOS. The android version is missing most of the features I want to use. Can't edit entries I started on MacBook, can't use rich text editing, can't create templates or even use templates created on MacBook. $24.99 is not a steep enough discount for how much functionality this app lacks on the android platform.
  • Dec 2, 2021

    By Brandon B.
    Overpriced for what it is. TONS of bugs. Entries get messed up. Adding photos and then saving an entry can cause it to freeze. Layout of the list of entries is nonsensical (date on right, picture on left, and title shifts if picture present 🤦🏽very poorly thought out). Android version is poorly designed & missing key features compared to iOS and desktop version. They're adamant about making a giant plus sign take up half of the entire screen instead of using that space to show more entries.
  • Dec 15, 2021

    By Li Gu
    Something in the December update seems to have broken the date on entries. My entries in December all show incorrect dates and editing does not help. The calendar view and inspecting entry metadata shows the right date, but the main journal view shows a completely different date. All entries prior to December 1 are correct.

    Honestly I did love this app. But then my phone broke and nothing I can do can recover all the journal entries I had. Honestly makes me sad. I'd be a lifetime user if I could recover them.

    Probably really great for iOS users since that's who they cater to based on their website. There is no Windows version and the Android version doesn't have nearly as much functionality as the iOS version...not by a long shot. I so badly wanted this to be a good journaling app for me. But this is an absolute NO. Trying to upload a profile picture caused my app to crash multiple times (ended up not being able to upload it at all). I think they should just take this off the play store. Go bk to iOS

  • Wonderful Life Logging Oct 15, 2018

    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.

    Exactly what I've been looking for. I can download it as a PDF to print. I only wish I was able to print it through their printing services but apparently that only works currently with Apple phones.

    I truly enjoy this app, as I use it to count gifts and blessings each day. I can add a photo a day, and after a year it will remind me of gifts recorded a year ago. So far I have only used the free app, and I have all I need right now. However I can step up my game if I ever want to. Perfect!

    I'm super stoked to have Day One on Android, it was always my favorite journaling app on ios! Although, I think it could use some work on this platform. You get all the basics of the app, and they typically work well (scaling on tablets meh). But what I would really like to see would be the ability to embed files and videos in entries, and for the voice recording feature to be added. These features are very important to me, and once added to the Android app I will happily rate it 5 stars :)
  • Seems great but one request Jan 22, 2022

    By TwisterClatterClash
    Found this app today and was really excited to use it with my partner until I realized there was no simple collaboration feature. Right now we use SimpleNote, and although they do not have much in terms of designing the entry more creatively like this app, the one thing they do have, the most important for us, is the collab feature. We do a ton of self-growth work and like to share our notes with each other, adding to them or just simply reading them and feeling connected when apart. Why that feature is so convenient on theirs is because you simply click “collab” in the drop down menu of each entry, add someone’s email address, it sends them an email a note was shared, but then the entry pops up under their app too. No need to edit/collab via that email, because you can collab straight from the app. Any collab entries just show up like they are your entries on your app. It’s so convenient and helpful. I really would love to see this app bringing something easy like that to it, because it already has everything we could ask for in journaling, but this one majorly important thing. Aside from this, amazing job developers!
  • Really very good, not perfect though Oct 10, 2020

    This app is a very serviceable personable journal. I believe it’s worth the annual cost for the premium features if maintaining a journal is something that you find beneficial to your well-being as I do. I appreciate the synchronization between my devices more than anything, and the security seems adequate for such personal data. I also enjoy the metadata tagged in each entry (location, weather, activity, etc) which I feel will be very interesting in the long run as I review older entries. My biggest ask is that I very much wish the developer would make the journaling canvas more free form by allowing entries to contain mixtures of text, handwriting, photos, and drawings similar to how iPadOS notes works. As it functions at the time of this review the entry is more like an e-mail composer where you enter text, and then can attach photos and drawings in a somewhat rigid manner. Unleash the creative potential of the journaling canvas and I’ll call this the perfect journaling experience worthy of five stars! Unless something else comes along with that capability though, this is likely still your best choice for a journaling app.
  • Don’t Get This For The Book Printing May 13, 2020

    By kasecam
    I love journaling!! I came to Day One because a friend shared on social media about a book she printed over a year ago. I was so excited to finally move away from handwriting my journals, but still have a physical copy. For a year I’ve recorded about the birth of my second son and all our family’s adventures! I love it! But now that It’s time to print I’ve wasted a whole day (seriously, so many hours carrying my phone around and retrying to upload and enter the payment information) trying to order the book to no avail. I was given a few suggestions by the support team, but none of those worked either and I’m so sad! This was the whole reason I downloaded the app and now I feel like I won’t have a physical copy of all the things I journaled this year. I hope they sort something out ASAP for the book printing so I can come back one day and print all my memories. So for that, I have to take a star away, and let the book printers out there know that it may not be the app for you if a physical copy is your goal. But if you’re happy with the digital copy, then this app would be amazing!

    I love DayOne for MacOS and iPadOS, but find the Android version limited and limiting. You cannot edit entries on Android if they were created or edited on any Apple OS version of DayOne. As I understand it, folks are working to make the Android version more compatible, including editing functions, sync, security and other features. For now, though, it is acceptable (maybe) if you use it on Android alone. If, like me, you want to bounce between different OSs & devices, it's disappointing.
  • Writing prompts Sep 24, 2021

    By Rvmpt
    I got the app mostly for the daily writing prompts. I already journal and have for years, but my journal entries are often short reports of what happened today. I am retiring soon and hope to do much more writing. I write for a living but again, very specific topics and audience, whereas what I hope to write is more of a memoir. My writer friends tell me they write for 30 minutes a day, but most belong to a group with a leader who supplies a writing prompt daily. I was hoping for that. Some days it is that. But way too many days it’s things like “come up with a crazy business idea” or “What were your 5 favorite movies.” Luckily, I have the free version so I can’t complain too much. But I would love it if the daily prompts could be less specific and more like open ended statements or questions that provoke thought. I also am not a fan of the writing streak function, which only records whether I have written in response to the prompt but not if I have done other journal writing on that day. I think it would be more accurate (and less annoying) if it counted any writing done on a particular day as part of the writing streak.

    I absolutely love Day One, but I switched from iPhone to Android, and I'm upset all my journals that were encrypted aren't supported on Android. So I basically have no journals. I also can't add video to my journals since I have Android now.

    This app is awesome...on iOS. The android version is missing most of the features I want to use. Can't edit entries I started on MacBook, can't use rich text editing, can't create templates or even use templates created on MacBook. $24.99 is not a steep enough discount for how much functionality this app lacks on the android platform.

    Overpriced for what it is. TONS of bugs. Entries get messed up. Adding photos and then saving an entry can cause it to freeze. Layout of the list of entries is nonsensical (date on right, picture on left, and title shifts if picture present 🤦🏽very poorly thought out). Android version is poorly designed & missing key features compared to iOS and desktop version. They're adamant about making a giant plus sign take up half of the entire screen instead of using that space to show more entries.

    Something in the December update seems to have broken the date on entries. My entries in December all show incorrect dates and editing does not help. The calendar view and inspecting entry metadata shows the right date, but the main journal view shows a completely different date. All entries prior to December 1 are correct.

    Probably really great for iOS users since that's who they cater to based on their website. There is no Windows version and the Android version doesn't have nearly as much functionality as the iOS version...not by a long shot. I so badly wanted this to be a good journaling app for me. But this is an absolute NO. Trying to upload a profile picture caused my app to crash multiple times (ended up not being able to upload it at all). I think they should just take this off the play store. Go bk to iOS

    Finally got the upgrade & it keeps crashing. After typing a few lines it starts glitching. I have to task kill; then sometimes it'll erase half the sentence I was working on. This goes on until i finish my entry. This only started the day I began my free trial. I tried canceling during the trial period & I couldn't. Very disappointing!

    I never agreed to recurring charges. This app auto renews!! I'll be calling about my refund. And The app sucks as I stated in June of 2019 when it crashed and I lost everything.

    Honestly I did love this app. But then my phone broke and nothing I can do can recover all the journal entries I had. Honestly makes me sad. I'd be a lifetime user if I could recover them.
