  • My daily go-to journal

    By Michelle in Norcal
    I absolutely love this app. I love how it syncs with my all of my electronics. I used to use a paper journal but ended up with wrist issues. Now and I have multiple journals (personal, business, book notes, etc.) and they are all in one place. I've been using for over 2 years and will continue!
  • The Best

    By Kipper33
    Been using DO for years. The true beauty of it can't be realized until you build up a few years of daily activity. Great platform.
  • It works great for me

    By Norman Oaks
    Without premium it worked out pretty well for me since I was only planning on having a single journal and I only used one device anyways.
  • Best journal app ever

    By Megan Momma
    Used Apple notes for years, switched to this last year and I'm working to transfer all my notes from Apple now. I'll never go back. Sort, categorize, download to a PDF based on the tag... Powerful storage for all your documentation needs, both personal and professional.
  • Still as great as ever

    By KentuckyGirl983
    I started my Day One journey in 2014, with Day One Classic, and when Day One 2 was released, bought it the day it came out. I have not been disappointed by this amazing product / service. I have been journaling now since 1999, and have come to rely on Day One as THE go to app. It is the one i use the most. I have been slowly, but surely, abridging my older journlaing into Day One and continue to find ever-increasing creative ways for using it. The team is always on top of any questions, concerns, or issues that arise, and usually respond the following day - unless it’s the weekend (htough tey’ve responded a couple of times then, too). All in all, I HIGHLY recommend buying this app / service and giving it a go. I’ve not been disappointed, and I don’t believe you will be, either! ****** Update - 16 July 2022 What a transformation Day One has gone through! I can honestly say that it has met my particular needs and then some. Yes, other customers have had issues here and there with the app and service. It's software. It happens. Overall, it just works for me.
  • Solid! Year over year

    By ayocanada
    Been using day one for years. Love the "On This Day" feature for looking back at what I wrote in my journal many moons ago. And keeping my streak alive :) I also really like the prompts. I'd like the ability to import prompts easily :)
  • Great App

    By Jake Clayson
    Easy to use, makes it convenient for me to journal everywhere I go without having to carry anything around, and I like the export/print options as well.
  • Day One LOVER!

    By autumnpotter
    I have used Day One since 2019, and I have never gone back. It is so convient, and so nice to just have on my computer and phone.
  • Great

    By dbrough13
    Update: They fixed the Mac/Android syncing and it is awesome. Made this program perfect now. I love this program and it really could be THE BEST if it would have sync between Mac, Android and Windows. I have a Mac but my tablet is Android and I am not able to journal on the move because it doesnt sync from my Mac to my Android.
  • Great journal app. Makes it super easy to stick with it

    By Thatrandomreviewer
    I love this app. I got the free trial for a month and then stuck with it. I use it every day for journaling and it makes it increadibly seamless to do it. Great UI, love the formatting with pictures. Really can't complain about anything
