When we launched Templates last year, we did so hoping an in-app framework for repeated journal responses would help facilitate daily journaling. Many journalers like to log the same type of response each day, and Templates make this easy to do. Our Templates library includes Day Summary, 5 Minute PM, Meals, Ideas and more. Users can also create their own custom Templates.
The response to Templates has been overwhelmingly positive, … Read more “Wondering What to Write? There’s a Prompt For That.”
When we released Version 1.0 of Day One 8 1/2 years ago, we never could have imagined what Day One would become. It was just a simple journaling app in a big, crowded app store. We didn’t know if success would come, but we knew we had to try. Over the years, we’ve added new capabilities so you, our users, could capture more of what matters most in your lives.… Read more “Thankful For Our Day One Users”

It’s that last part we’re going to focus on—not just in this blog post—but throughout the entire … Read more “Giving Thanks All Month Long”

Which is why we’re thrilled to announce that templates have officially arrived as part of our Version 4.2 release.
You will now … Read more “It’s Time For Templates”

I used to think keeping a gratitude journal was easy.
I had this little workflow setup through Launch Center Pro on my iPhone which asked me different questions at the end of each day. My answers were then sent to Day One and saved there forever.Those answers always ended up being repetitive and monotonous. I’d rarely dive into descriptive thoughts or feelings, instead opting to just finish the end-of-day quiz … Read more “Five Tips for Keeping a Gratitude Journal”
