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

This is currently a very well designed app on Android but for some reason, they do not have a Windows, Chrome, or browser based interface so I can't give it the credit (stars) it deserves. (Developers, yes I paid for Premium.) EDIT: I found the web interface through the forum (should be a clear home page link). Adding one more star until a Windows app comes out.

I honestly loved this app for what it was. They had SEVERAL helpful templates to help me with journaling ideas when I couldn't come up with any of my own. The problem is, there's no support if you're not a premium user and the website that they say you can use in addition to the app has deleted/not uploaded my journal entries twice. Email support is only for premium users. You get a forum if you're a free user. Good riddance.

Less than a week in, and I'm already so in love with it. 40 years of traditional diaries under my belt & an additional private e-mail online to store letters and stories were my previous journaling methods. The abilities of this app -- to store photos, videos, texts, posted thoughts and letters all in one place with options to share, print or have multiple journals at once -- is a game changer. If I ever write a book, this app will have played a major role in that objective.
