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.
