Today saw the launch of version 2.2 of my favorite journaling app Day One. This update brings their most-requested feature, end-to-end encryption. Launched in 2011, Day One previously offered the option to sync your journal via Dropbox or iCloud. This changed in 2015 when they switched to the proprietary Day One Sync, as version 2.0 brought several changes in the form of a new app, allowing for multiple journals, among other improvements. Day One Sync is part of a bigger plan, including their IFTTT integration and eventual expansion to the web, as well as Windows an Android.
This update comes weeks after another update which introduced the ability to have your journals printed as books and delivered to you. If you aren’t familiar with Day One, it’s my favorite way to journal and keep track of events, trips, or any other special memories. The Activity Feed feature makes it easy to import events and posts from your calendar, social media accounts, Photos, and locations you visit. If you’re interested in life-logging or quantified self stuff, or you just want to build a good journaling habit, I can’t recommend Day One enough. You can grab it here for $4.99 as a universal app on iOS (macOS version is also available).
