Blek should win an award for having the most Freudian icon…

Thumb resize.

…fifth-grade boys may now take this time to nudge each other and whisper, "boobs".

I LOVE Day One, using it, well....daily :) It's brilliantly designed and leaves enough space to let me do just what I like to do: writing a small notice on daily basis. Some people complain about the lack of being able to put multiple pictures in it or video but I think that's just part of the concept, you can add multiple video's or pictures and lot's of text using Facebook of other platforms but Day One keeps it simple and simplistic and....private.

I love Threes, Leo's Fortune, and Blek. Will check out the others.

But Monument Valley is the most beautiful gaming experience I've ever had.

Yeah, I like this app also. If they would just add the ability to attach a multi page PDF I will be in heaven. :)

Totally agree. It revolutionized my journaling habit and made me nearly prolific in my writing. There's apps and then there's apps like Day one that actually change your life. Well deserved honour.
