My favourite journalling app for the Mac and iOS is getting an update!
In the next few weeks, the guys at Bloom are going to release a 2.0 update for Day One which has been in development for several years. This is going to include some handy bits of functionality like adding several photos to a single journal entry, maintaining multiple, separate journals and so on.
I’m really excited to see all of this come to fruition. The introduction of their own sync service last year was the start of something really big. I can’t wait for it to work with other services, so I can (for example) automatically include checkins, Facebook mentions, Tweets, fitness information and so on. All the stuff my iPhone has at its disposal could – in theory – be automatically added to my Day One journal to give me a real ‘life log’.
The update won’t be free – but how else can we expect companies to continue to produce quality software if we don’t pay for what they develop? I’ll be happy to buy my upgrade, as soon as it’s available.
If you like to keep a journal, you may like to check out Day One. Accessible on all the platforms I use (including Apple Watch!), it’s a great way to record your thoughts and experiences. I’ve previously blogged about it here and use it daily to track what’s been going on. Sometimes more than once per day, depending on the madness around me. I have a daily reminder set up in ToDoist to ensure I never (rarely!) miss a day.
Maybe you’ll be inspired to start the habit when you check out these examples uses for the app.
