You must use the "Apple Store" app to find the promotion - not search in the App Store.

It's in the APPLE Store App, not the APP Store. Just open the Apple Store app and scroll on the featured page until you see the little banner.

I haven't read the terms and conditions, but isn't Apple very much in the debate of pro-privacy right now? Would seem weird for them to fight the FBI to keep phone's locked, while selling your journal data...

Be careful.

Many reviews in the UK are saying that you give up possession to all your content if you use this app.

Day One 2? Now that's a name that just rolls right off the tongue. If they can't even put in the effort to give it a decent name then why should I use it, lol.

The app is not by Apple. According to their web site ('http://dayoneapp.com/sync/') your data is stored by the maker of the app on AWS (Amazon) cloud servers, so it's not in Apple's hands. Just like you are subject to Facebook's (and not Apple's) privacy policies when you use the Facebook app. I have no idea how trustworthy this company is, but I'd be very hesitant to store private journal entries in any cloud unless I can use true end-to-end encryption (which is not the case for Day One from what I can see).


Get it free now, then wait for the 2.1 release which will provide Private-key Encryption:

Private-key Encryption
In 2016, we will develop and provide full private-key encryption on the server in our 2.1 release for iOS and Mac apps by May 2016. Our encryption features will utilize the user’s private key to encrypt all entries before they reach the server. In short, the server will have no access to the user’s unencrypted data. Neither iCloud ('https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT202303') nor Dropbox ('https://www.dropbox.com/help/28') currently provide this level of security, thus making Day One Sync even more secure than these other sync/backup methods.

How is this better than just keeping a journal as a word processor document? If you want to share with friends you can keep it in a free Dropbox account or similar. With pictures in the document or on the side as separate items. All free. I just keep a journal as a Pages document (actually a new document whenever the last one seems too long) accessible on my iMac and all my iOS devices. Pictures in my pictures folder, and the ones I want to share on Dropbox. (I don't share my journal. Nobody would want to read it. But it would be easy to share if I wanted to.)


Yes, you can use pliers to take off a nut, but it's better with a wrench. It's just a specialized tool is all. What makes it better? It's designed for journaling. It can be sorted by day, with a calendar view. It can be sorted by location, by photos. You can have multiple journals with those same features but for different topics. I can hit a button on my watch and it creates an entry in my journal.

That's a lot of goodness for less than the cost of an extra value meal.

Or ... free.
