    Update: I have the Plus account and I just love it. Will move up to a Premium account when I can. Highly recommend, even though I am one of those who generally hates subscriptions. This one is worth it for most people, I would say. Nice app. A favorite for sure. Works great.
  • Sharing

    Thanks for updating app and allowing sharing again. Love to use this feature. I use your app every day and it has a lot of untapped potential for me. Highly recommend app!
  • Wonderful

    By ErichaLynn
    User friendly, I use it very basically but now I realizeI can have a book printed, going to do so much more. It’s good to keep honest tabs on my life but time to get creative! Love the touch lock option now that I no longer encrypt.
  • Horrible scam

    By DoeJoe
    I waited for years for the writing function. Now it’s here and you have to pay $24 per year to get it. Prescription subscription greed scam. This is how it is now. Get another app if you mind be nickeled and dimed. Or just pay thousands per year in subscriptions for basic functions.
  • Not enough unless you pay

    By MScioli
    All the good features are premium. One photo? C’mon man
  • Indespensable

    Been using this app now for five years. Can’t live without it!
  • $25 to use apple Pen

    By koinestudent
    I was looking for a good journaling app and came across very good reviews regarding Day One and so I decided to download it since it was ‘free’. However, as I tried to use my apple pen for writing, I was given an ad to upgrade to the premium version if I wanted to use the drawing/writing feature. $25/Per year! Seriously! No way. Maybe if this wasn’t an annual subscription but I’m not forking any $$ for something I can do for free on the regular notes app that comes built into my iPad!
  • My favorite journal

    By Haddude
    First let me start by saying that I absolutely love this app. For a private person like myself, I don’t like sharing my life with everyone on Facebook or IG. Day One provides me the perfect solution to document all the moments in my life that I want to remember and enables pretty decent options to share those with loved ones. This is my personal journal. Also, their customer service support is amazing. I needed help creating a book that I needed to order urgently for a Christmas gift. Adam and Cameron from their support team were very helpful in resolving my issues and were even responding after work hours.
  • Annoying Glitch

    By bUrNNiNNaToR
    There is a glitch when using “text replacement” shortcuts. There is no way for me to contact you directly so I’m leaving a 1 star review until this issue is resolved. You can contact me for more information on your app’s glitch. This is only occurring in your app and not anywhere else in iOS 12. Your last update has caused a glitch when using text replacement. It’s now been 2 months and there is still no fix for this annoying glitch. The only response from you is a suggestion to contact support through the app; which I tried and it didn’t work, by the way. Please fix this annoying glitch. I use this app every day. It is the only issue I have and it’s an easy fix.
  • Excellent program - a must have

    By Orca3925
    I have avidly used a Day Timer journal for the last 12 years. Until now I had not found anything close to the versatility of using pen and paper. I have used Day One every day for the last 35 or so days and found it amazing. Sometimes I use my iPad and sometimes I use my iPhone but it always works well and syncs up quick. I have even used the Apple Watch to enter a quick entry (great while traveling). I will also Day One’s support is beyond amazing. Three times I have asked for assistance and all 3 times I received it in a matter of minutes (maybe seconds). In my case Adam was the support person and he was prompt and very helpful. Yes, I do miss a few things about using pen and paper, like having a one page monthly summary where I could note highlights or maybe a place to record meetings by the hour, but life is about compromises and Day One’s pluses far out weigh anything I gave up. I highly recommend the App.
