  • Awesome App

    By pburtchaell
    The app is great and does everything I want. The only request I have is support for multiple Instagram accounts. I have a personal account and a photography account—would love to connect and sync both to Day One.
  • Always on sync is bad design decision

    By FRH-SD
    Very nice app and would give it 5 stars, but recent design changes want me to give 2 stars only: - Selective sync: why is my Journal deleted from my device if I chose not to sync it anymore, because I don’t need to edit/ add to that Journal anymore? It should remain my device and just be excluded from the sync process - isn’t that what Selective Sync means? - For Premium users, sync is now always ON, meaning that the app now constantly pings for changes, adding to unnecessary network traffic. A nuisance, in particular when in a wifi environment with small bandwidth, like it often happens when traveling domestically or abroad. There is an option to pause syncing for 24 hours - why 24 hrs, why not 36, 48, a week...? A design too cute! Why this Pause at all, just give as the Sync On/Off button back. App has no Edit mode while you create or edit your Journal entries, which makes this always On design really a nuisance. Please give us back the Sync On/Off button. Added comment: Feedback provided by developer on 11/11/19 has nothing to do with my 2 points raised above!
  • In app purchase

    By janeyloces art
    Great app. Unclear as to to cost to use app before actually downloading. I resent companies that won’t tell me what it is I have to purchase before downloading. This company basically want you to use their backup services to have full functionality. What is the big deal to let customers know that before they use their app. It’s like buying a house and you don’t get to see the inside before hand. You can only post one photo and make one journal. The cost is 35 per year if you want to use multiple photos in the app in one journal. Also I can’t turn off location services on photo. I do think the app is well designed but location services and lack of transparency before purchase gives it a 1.
  • I love it!

    The option of adding the videos is great!

    I would love to see a time stamp feature. Also calendar integration would be great. Otherwise, Day One has been a pleasure to use!
  • Still no Undo button?

    By AnnaMN
    So frustrating... It is been years.
  • Terrible

    By Black Cat
    Renewed annual subscription 24 hours earlier. Asked for refund, no help. I took it to my credit card and this is a review for the terrible customer service. Both Apple and Day One.
