Day One for Android

We are currently working on updates for the Android version of Day One and hope to have some released in the near future.

Cannot edit certain entries 

  • Status: This is currently by design. Any entries created or edited in version 2.8 (or later) on macOS or 3.0 (or later) on iOS will not be editable on Android at this time. We built an all-new editor for Day One on iOS and macOS and it has not been added to Android at this time. To prevent data loss when editing entries, this has been locked on Android. 

  • Workaround: Users can still create and view entries on Android. Once the entry is edited on iOS or macOS, it will no longer be editable on Android until the new editor is available there. We do not have an ETA yet. 

End to End Encryption not currently supported

End to End Encryption is not currently supported on Android but it is being actively worked on. This may prevent some journals created on iOS/Mac from syncing over to an Android device.

  • Status: Being actively developed for Android

  • Workaround: Users can create a new journal without End to End Encryption and then move those entries to that new standard encrypted journal so they will sync across all platforms.

Photos not attaching to entries

Some users have reported that they cannot add photos that are stored in their default photos app.
