I'd love to use this app for private diaries, but I don't want my unprotected private data on Sync-Servers located in the US.
Encryption should be the No.1 feature in a diary-app.

I have used a variety ofMac diary programs/apps since 1990. This one is easy and not intrusive. However, it crashed every time it launched (for about a month). But the support over this time has been constant and helpful in diagnosing a couple problems. The latest release now seems to have fixed the problem. Excellent support.

Problem was a conflict with a plug in for online video conferencing. Nothing could be done. I need that online video (part of my teaching). So I have stopped use of DayOne. ‘Tis a shame, as it seemed to offer a good package.

When I get old and grey (well, old) I won't want to read about how high my utility bills were back in 2014 or how much I liked "Cloud Atlas." I discovered, through this app, that I am NOT a journal-type person. I collect info, undated, pure info. Jounler was great for that and now I use MacJournal. But for the die-hard "where was I on June 14, 2016," it's a perfect app. I think forgetting is as important as remembering!

Does it collect personal data? YES
Does it allow upload to cloud services? YES
Does it allow encryption? NO

Go figure.

I’m always impressed when one of the apps I purchase turns out to be an indispensable tool on my Mac, especially one that has to sync with my iOS devices, and Day One is just that. I’ve tried the top five journaling and daily timeline apps for iOS and Mac and IMHO, Day One is the clear winner in all regards. It looks good, it feels good, and it serves every imaginable need of an app in its genre.

But even the best of apps need something that most apps don’t have…support from the developer. I encountered a couple of minor issues I couldn’t figure out about Day One and their support guru promptly responded and professionally solved both issues. He took the time to have an email dialog with me and made me feel like a real customer, which I appreciate immensely. Kudos to Bloom Built, LLC for not only a great app…but equally great support.

This app has overcome a lot of its earlier teething problems and is now pretty darn good. Wish the dev would make an iCloud version of Evernote.

Very attractive journaling app that syncs well with the excellent iOS version. However, it needs better exporting features. Currently only one day at a time can be exported to pdf and any photos are stripped in the process. I'd like to be able to archive off my entries to pdf a month or more at a time, including photos.

The app also lacks encryption. You can password-lock your journal within Day One, but this seems a bit pointless as the database is unencrypted and anyone can read it by simply opening it in a text editor.

I have to agree. Encryption is absolutely necessary. This is THE missing feature.

The developer cannot hear that enough times. Day One looks great and I'd love to buy it, but I won't until there is real encryption. Bloom Built, you are losing customers by not supporting this feature.
