Daily Journaling App Day One Acquired by Wordpress.com Owner Automattic
Popular iOS and Mac-based journaling app Day One has been acquired by Automattic, a company best known for running WordPress.com. News of the acquisition was announced today on the Day One blog.
The Day One app will continue to be run separately, and Day One founder Paul Mayne will continue to lead the Day One team. Day One will be updated in the future with integrations with WordPress.com and Tumblr, but will otherwise remain largely the same.
When a small software company is acquired by a larger company, the original team is often swallowed up by the larger company. That's not the case here. I'll be remaining at the helm of Day One, leading the same passionate team that has been responsible for the development and design behind the app today. This means that the Day One you rely on to save your thoughts, photos, videos, audio recordings, and more isn't going away. Instead, it'll only get better, with future integrations with Tumblr and WordPress.com. Rest assured there are no current plans to change the privacy of Day One; safely protecting memories and creating a 100% personal space is the foundation upon which this company was built.
Day One's privacy policies will remain in place, as will all of the app features for recording thoughts, photos, videos, and more. Day One offers cross-platform compatibility, end-to-end encryption, and Markdown support, and it's long been a key app on the iPhone, iPad, and Mac.
Day One is free to use, but there is a premium membership that adds unlimited photos and videos, plus audio recordings. Day One Premium is priced at $3.99 per month and the app can be downloaded from the App Store. [Direct Link]

While I don't use Wordpress - the part that makes it so I don't worry is that Paul will continue to run the company (for now) with the staff.
Great app! I can't say enough good about it. I've used this every day for years and years. Works beautifully. Love reading entries in X years prior on the day I'm doing my entry. Finding data is easy as well.
Yeah, who would support such a thing??
2) It is not always practical to take a physical journal everywhere
3) You can' t readily attach diagrams and pictures to the physical journal
4) Making a duplicate of your physical journal to keep in a safe place in case the main one gets lost or damaged is not alway practical or possible, whereas with digital, one can create numerous copies to store in several places at home as well as the cloud in case of fire or theft.
I could list many more reasons but, I made my point.
