Day One Journal



    Day One Journal's review

    Published: 2015-03-24, by .

    More than a journal, it’s the life tracker you need

    • Daily reminders
    • Writing prompts included
    • Great value for money
    • One photo only per entry
    • More text formatting options needed

    "A simple, yet feature-packed journaling app"


    Day One is a distraction free journal app with a beautiful, graceful design. A small app that packs an insane amount of functionality, you can record details of your daily life, feelings and activities and add a photo to each entry.

    This stylish journal is attractive and versatile enough to be of use to all types of journal keepers. Digital writers will appreciate the Multi-Markdown text formatting and Text Expander snippet capabilities. Have more than one iOS device? No problem! Day One syncs to Dropbox or iCloud; you'll never lose an entry.


    Day One will appeal to those who only wish to write, but it's a useful app for those who want to track life events too. Set up your daily reminders and make use of the writing prompts to encourage you to write often.

    Great value for money, this app is very much worth the price tag.


    You can only attach one photo for each entry and not everyone will understand how to use Markdown. As for those wishing to create lists, and other text formatting styles, won’t know how to: the app needs to provide better instruction.
