About this app

Day One is the journal app that reinvented journaling. Completely private, cross-platform, and designed to never fill up, Day One is designed to let you capture your life as you live it. Use Day One as a daily journal, personal diary, note taking app, travel log, or gratitude journal.

“Day One creates something so rare it feels almost sacred: A completely private digital space.” – New York Times

“Day One makes keeping a journal delightfully easy.” – Wired

“It’s perfect! Does what it says on the box. I was able to import my stuff from another (pricey) journal so that I didn’t lose those entries. It’s easy to add multiple entries to a day and to keep pictures. And it’s lockable, keeping private thoughts protected. I will happily use Day One for years.” – Day One user

Great app! The reason only three starts is that the month listing continues to be off. For instance, it's May now but all my May entries are under June, April listings under May, etc. etc. for each month. There was one or two times when I opened the app and the month listing's were correct but then it goes back to this wonky listing. I have tried uninstall ingredients and reinstalling the app, updating the app, and making sure my OS is the most recent.

The app so far is pretty great! I've only had it a little over a week so take me with a grain of salt. I have only one complaint thus far and that is when I retype a misspelled word, it auto corrects the word by doubling what I type. for example if I retype "stareotypical" as stereotypical, I would get "stereotypicalereotypical". confusing to relay so I apologize, granted it is twice as frustrating.

Android version doesn't save entries and the cancellation process is difficult. The android app stopped saving my entries making the entire application unreliable and pointless. The web version is also buggy. When I went to cancel the application, I got an error message which is infuriating. Then when I cancelled the subscription on Stripe, it wouldn't delete my credit card information because my subscription was active even though the plan was cancelled.
