I got the latest version of Day One for my Mac and iPhone, taking advantage of the 50% off pricing.1 Jake Underwood wrote a solid review at MacStories. I’m determined to get into a habit of writing regularly for myself.
Here are my notes during the migration from Day One Classic:
- Mac: Import from Day One Classic took a minute for 3015 entries and 495 photos.
- After creating a Day One account, sync completed in about 26 minutes while I watched Arrested Development. It was cool to see the Dashboard page in my Day One account refresh every few seconds.
- iPhone: Sync completed in about 18 minutes.
- Mac: I created a new journal for Automattic, viewed my Automattic tag, selected all the filtered entries (⌘+A), then dragged them into the new journal. Sync was fairly quick after that. Pretty slick! (See also: Moving Entries to Other Journals)
Next, I’ll start with a few reminders throughout each day on my phone. I haven’t before, but I’d like to see how I feel after adding that small habit. To make it quick, I can use my Logitech Bluetooth Easy-Switch K811 Keyboard and Amy’s Glif (affiliate links) when I’m at my desk.
(I should review the Day One Uses page.)
Using this fine app, I look forward to being mindful of my thoughts, feelings, and actions on a regular basis.
Another cool tidbit: dayoneapp.com uses WordPress and Jetpack! ⭐
- I think today is the last day of the sale pricing for the iOS app. However, from the Day One listing in the Mac App Store, “Sale extended until Feb 17th to assist our users that have no yet heard about the new app, and those having trouble purchasing due to errors in the Mac App Store.” ↩
