Day One / Publish

Publish is not currently available in Day One 2. We are planning to add Publish back into Day One 2 on iOS and Mac later this year with new features. Sorry for the delay.

Publish continues to function well on Day One Classic iOS. You can publish entries created in Day One 2 if they are in the primary journal that is synced back to Day One Classic. To qualify the entry for Publishing from Classic the entry can only contain a single photo and the photo must be positioned at the top of the entry.

Publish enables you to post individual Day One entries to a beautiful webpage, then share them.

Publish is currently available in the iPhone and iPad apps.

(To create an account, Open Settings and tap Day One Account.)

Publish Features

Data Retention

Publish allows you to share and participate in multiple social networks, all the while keeping your source entry in a single location—your Day One journal. With this centralized, single source, you’re free to archive, print, and export your entries—even after you stop using a given social media service.


All entries can be edited and modified after they’ve been published. Feel free to fix typos, change location and date, and make other modifications to your entries.


By default, Published entries are hidden from search engines and visible only to you and people with whom you share Publish URLs. If you want to share your entry with more people, you can do so with social services like Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Foursquare, and others.

Detailed Information


Tags are included with published entries and are shown below the text as supplemental metadata.

Image and Video Embeds

At this time, published entries do not display inline embedded images or video, but do include links to these visual assets.

Mac App Support

Currently Day One Mac includes a Timeline filter for all Publish entries as well as a link in the entry metadata to the Publish Page. Look for additional improvements to Mac Publish functionality in the future.
