Featuring in-depth reviews that cover every function and feature found within Day One, our handbook goes line-by-line showing you how to make the most of this award-winning journaling app.
Day One is the best journaling app for the iPhone, iPad, and Mac.
It is beautifully designed, easy to use, and fun to use. It’s one of the most versatile and well-designed apps available, with a usefulness that applies to people of all professions, ages, and interests.
Journal entries in Day One need not be only text. Photos. Locations. Weather. Tags and sorting. We have these computers in our pockets at all times. Our journal apps needn’t be constrained only to when we have time to sit and muse.
Day One combines the simple daily log, event log, activity log, or whatever else log, along with a photo album, and long-form expressive writing. It serves many purposes.
Day One is the journaling app we use, and the more we use it the more we enjoy using it.
But Day One has a problem…
Though it’s full of possibilities, people don’t know where to start. Day One’s greatest strength can also be its greatest weakness. It’s this giant blank canvas, which is awesome, but can also be intimidating and confusing. And that’s what we’re here to help with.
We at The Sweet Setup have all been using Day One since it first appeared on the Mac App Store back in 2011. And, like you, we too have used it to write about many of the most memorable events of our lives.
For me (Shawn Blanc), those moments include the births of my three boys, quitting my job of 10 years to venture out on my own, snowboarding in Colorado with my best friends, my oldest son’s first words, and more (not all in that order). I also use Day One to track and manage the business challenges I face, as well as the practical ups and downs of my life as a work-from-home, self-employed dad.
And I use it for miniature reviews of books I read, movies I watch, coffees and other drinks I enjoy, and more.
