  • It’s ok but you cam no longer sync to iCloud

    By JohnBoy5562
    Update 6-24-18 With the update you should have added syncing to iCloud back. It seams you tell everyone that iCloud is unreliable but that’s just not true. I’ve been using iCloud close to 8 years now and have never lost any of my data from any of my apps. My health my photos my music that I use iTunes Match my sync notes even my photos stream. So something just doesn’t add up? I also sync to my iMac. You should let your customers decide where they want to back up there data. I bought your app when it had the option to sync to iCloud and that was the selling point for me. And if I lost my data it would me on me and me only. But in the 8 years I’ve used iCloud I never lost my data. And even if I did I have my data backed up on my iMac and a home server use drop box and amazon prime drive. So why should I be forced to buy yet another cloud service? If you want to host sync service for your app that’s fine but don’t force people to use it if they don’t want to. I just feel like I’ve been ripped off because I bought your app before the change and I feel like your double dipping. Seam to me your not going to add it back but that ok I’ve found a app that I like just as much as your if not better. Would have stayed with your app and never looked back until you made these change. If it’s not broke don’t fix it. I have also read reviews on here that your cloud service is not %100. That being said at least give the option to save to your local cloud or iCloud. And as far as supporting this app I did by buying it. If you run Microsoft or Windows they don’t charge you to back up your data. If you use pages or office when your done you hit save as and you pick as many places to back up as you want. Apple does not force you to use iCloud and Microsoft does not force you to use their cloud service so why are you forcing people to use your? Maybe I’m not using the app the right way but for the life of me I can’t find away to get my data off or to sync to iCloud. First review I didn’t use the old app that much and now it tells me I need to upgrade the the new version. This version is ok I just wished I could still use iCloud to sync. seams like you give the same answer to every one wanting to use iCloud not being 100% but I never had any problems with it. I don’t know why you wouldn’t want to give your customers a choice to where they wanted to store their data. Anyway I have found a app that gives you that choice and was like your app before you wanted more money to sync your data. If someone wants a app to back up their journals for a fee I say this is the app for you. But if you don’t use this app every day like myself there is a app for $5 just as good. If you would add iCloud back up back as a option I would definitely use this app but I can’t see myself paying every month just for the privilege of using your sync services.
  • Just downloaded but very laggy!

    I can't wait to try out this new journaling app, but I'm encountering some serious lag trying to navigate around it.
  • Just Needs Search

    By Morgie63
    The Day One app is fantastic - I live in this app constantly because I am a prolific writer, but that means that my entries in three different journals are many, sometimes three or four per day. I go back to read meaningful entries as motivation to myself at times, but even though I know what I’m looking for it sometimes takes me 20 minutes thumbing through entry after entry trying to find that one entry I want to re-read. If only I could do a simple search for words, word combinations, or partial phrases that I know I used when writing a past journal entry. It would a simple feature to add, and then, the app would not just be fantastic, it would be PERFECT.
  • Why can’t I sync over iCloud?

    By bertpi
    Why can’t I sync over iCloud if your service isn’t reliable? From what I understand even paying for your service won’t guarantee the safety of my journal. Like my photo album, my journal is a prize possession and it’s frustrating knowing it can’t be securely guarded, especially even if I pay the outrageous fees.
  • Longtime user - love this app!!!!

    By Emi247
    Thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you for adding the feature to exclude specific journals from On This Day. Thank you! There are things from my past I don’t want to be reminded of every year but didn’t want to delete because they were meaningful events and reflections. The lack of that feature was literally the only thing I didn’t like about Day One. I’ve used this app since the original version on iOS and MacOS and was grandfathered in as a Plus user. The only reason I didn’t upgrade to Premium is because I already had paid for the 2.0 MacOS app, so there wasn’t enough incentive for me (not complaining, just a fact). Day One is my favorite app and has been central to my iPhone dock for years!
  • Perfect way to journal

    By Sweetstuff11111
    Love the reminders and that it is so easy! Best app!
  • Still the best

    By Cybersco
    Despite occasional blips in the sync process, this app continues to be the standard bearer for journaling. It is still the one to beat for all the bells and whistles you might want, and definitely the most reliable overall.
  • Used Every Day

    By TK Nebraska
    This journal is versatile and easy to use with any device. I’m now in my third year of use and couldn’t be happier with it. Support for questions is always timely, good solutions within 24 hours when I couldn’t find the answer on the help page.
