Never content to rest on our laurels, we’ve whipped up another update.


  • Control is key and this update gives you even more control over what journal content you see. Which is why we’ve added two new options under Journals Settings. To toggle options, go to Day One > Settings > Journals > select a journal > Advanced. The new options are:

5.3 (September 16, 2020)

  1. On This Day – Revisit photos from past years with the On This Day preview.

  2. Daily Prompt – See the Daily Prompt throughout the day and answer when it’s convenient for you.

  3. Streaks – Keep track of your recent journaling streak and jump straight to the Calendar View (small widget) or to the Today View (medium widget).

  4. Today – Quickly see your most recent photos and location history to jump straight to the Today View to create a new entry.

  • New Shortcuts: We’ve added a number of new shortcuts to make it faster (and easier) to get exactly where you want to be in Day One. Visit the Shortcuts app to add shortcuts for viewing the Today View, answering the daily prompt, editing an entry, creating an entry with a template, or recording audio, shooting video, or taking a photo.

  • Wind Down: Day One can be added to your Wind Down actions so that as you prepare to go to bed, you can quickly access Day One to reflect on the day.

  • Contextual Menus: Quickly gain access to actions throughout Day One by long pressing on the buttons at the top of the main timeline, or the content/text edit buttons on the keyboard.

  • We’ve added additional keyboard shortcuts on the iPad. Hold down the command key while editing an entry to discover what’s available.


  • The photo picker now shows a checkmark next to photos and videos that you’ve already added to an entry in the past making it easier to see what moments from the past you still need to add to your journal.

  • The text edit and content keyboards have been updated to be more dynamic according to device orientation, and we’ve added more buttons to give you quick access to header types and highlighting. See here.


  • These bugs aren’t going to squash themselves, so we performed our usual round of extermination. We also cleaned up the UI a bit.

5.2 (September 2, 2020)

We’re back with a few new features and a handful of additional improvements.


  • This one’s for you iPad users: We’ve added a number of new keyboard shortcuts for creating a new entry.

If you haven’t learned by now, we love making it faster and easier to do the things you do every day.


  • Photos and photo groups now have rounded corners and are inline with the margin of the editor. Fancy and beautiful.

  • We’ve removed the clipboard section from the photo picker. Copy and paste still works for text, photos, pdfs, videos, and audio recordings directly in the entry editor.

  • The On This Day Map is now interactive, allowing you to pan and zoom to locate the colored dots that indicate entry locations. Tap on a dot to open Today for that entry. If only time travel was this easy.

  • Made performance improvements that should prevent the app from unexpectedly crashing in the background.

  • Fixed an issue where creating entries from calendar events was excluding the event notes, url, and location.

  • These bugs aren’t going to squash themselves, so we performed our usual round of extermination. We also cleaned up the UI a bit.

5.1 (August 19, 2020)


  • Named Places: Have a spot you journal from regularly? Now you can name it and have it automatically applied to past and future entries at or near the same location. You can name places from within Today, by tapping on the list of Places, selecting one, and choosing “Name this location.” You can also manage all of your named places by opening up the filter menu, tapping Place, and selecting “My Places.” Like magic, named places will seamlessly sync across all your devices.

  • Long-press contextual menu: Long-press on an individual journal entry in On This Day or Today to perform quick actions like Edit, Share, Favorite, or Delete.


  • These bugs aren’t going to squash themselves, so we performed our usual round of extermination. We also cleaned up the UI a bit.

5.0.1 (August 9, 2020)

  • Minor bug fixes affecting some users with PDF exports and Sign in with Apple.

5.0 (August 5, 2020)

In a year where news has been predominantly negative, we wanted to announce a bit of positive news from our corner of the world:Day One 5.0 is here and with it comes a number of new features and refinements we think make journaling even better.


  • Today: A complete reimagination of “Activity Feed,” Today aggregates five journal elements into one place: your location data, calendar events, photos taken, the day’s entries, and On This Day entries. Today provides an overview of where you’ve been and what you’ve done, allowing you to journal what matters most in a really convenient way. Today is also the most seamless way to revisit the past, with quick access to On This Day. You can access Today by tapping a date on the calendar, the date in the Timeline, or by tapping Today in the Journal Side Menu. Learn more.

  • Media Picker: Adding photos and videos to your entries is easier now thanks to four key updates to the Media Picker:

  1. Easily toggle between your photo library, the in-app camera, and the video recorder to add photos and videos to your entry.

  2. We removed the related tab and now group the contents of your photo library by location and time of day.

  3. Now photos will be added to the entry in the order you select them.

  4. New zoom buttons and a favorites icon in the photo picker help ensure you pick just the right photo.

  • PDF Exporter: With Day One your entries always stay yours. We’ve rebuilt our PDF Export system to give you even more control over how you export your data.

  • Sign in with Apple: We’ve made it even easier for you to create your Day One account by adding Sign in with Apple functionality. Existing users who want the simplicity of Sign in with Apple can convert their account over for future authentication. Learn more.

  • CSV Export: Now you can export your Day One data as a .csv file.


  • On This Day now shows a map of all entry locations from past years.


  • These bugs aren’t going to squash themselves, so we performed our usual round of extermination. We also cleaned up the UI a bit.

4.15.3 (July 10, 2020)

  • Bug fixes

4.15.2 (June 15, 2020)


  • Made some small performance improvements to sync and made some changes under the hood to address some user-reported crashes.

4.15.1 (June 9, 2020)

We’re back again with a small but important update that ensures Premium users can continue to use our Instagram Importer tool.


  • At the end of June, Facebook will be deprecating the legacy Instagram API, which is what Day One uses to connect to Instagram. Due to this change, we’ll be using a new API to continue offering sync functionality. If you’ve connected your Instagram account to Day One before, you’ll be asked to re-authenticate once the new service is up and running.

  • We’ve updated our in-app camera with slightly larger image previews so you can spend less time squinting and more time snapping. Plus, the UI now has a slick new dark tone.

4.15 (June 2, 2020)

We’re dedicating this update to Leonardo Da Vinci, whose birthday was 4-15. Buon compleanno, Leo.


  • Whether you’re left handed, right handed, or ambidextrous like Da Vinci, you can now use the trackpad on iPad to select multiple entries to view, tag, or move entries using command + click.

  • More knowing, less guessing — we’ve added labels to each of the five tab menu options so you always know what’s what.

  • If for some reason the server doesn’t know about a journal on your device, we’ll prevent you from being able to hide that journal until it has been properly synced.

  • When selecting multiple entries on iPad, card view now includes a button that will enlarge the entry to fill the main entry area.

  • Your collection of Daily Prompts are works of art, and now we’ve added a dedicated filter so you can quickly see them all at once.


  • These bugs aren’t going to squash themselves, so we performed our usual round of extermination. We also cleaned up the UI a bit.

4.14 (May 20, 2020)

Our palindrome update is officially here. To celebrate, we’ve used some “race car” language throughout the release notes.


  • Sometimes you make an edit in your journal entry you’d like to undo. You can always shake your phone to undo text or tap the backspace key, but now you’ll have the option of using the convenient little undo button we added inside the text edit/formatting menu.


  • Granting permissions is essential to making Activity feed run like a well-oiled machine and now it’s even easier to do, right inside the Activity Feed Settings.

  • Speaking of well-oiled machines, we got under the hood to give sync a tune up, boosting reliability, performance, and speed.

  • To save you time tapping, we added a new button in the selective sync settings to select/deselect all of your journals.

  • Sync wasn’t the only feature with a need for speed— the app itself now launches even faster.

  • We’re loving the trackpad functionality Apple recently added to iOS and added support for it in our last update. This update includes some tweaks and polish.

  • Here’s the scenario: you love the new Daily Prompts but the day got away from you and you forgot to respond to the prompt of the day. You can now quickly access a list of recent prompts by long pressing on the daily prompt in the new entry menu.

  • A minor note for major PDF export improvements we have underway: we’ve disabled the option to add monthly map pages to books.


  • These bugs aren’t going to squash themselves, so we performed our usual round of extermination. We also cleaned up the UI a bit.
