Well, I’ve had it.
Without turning this into another subscription thread, I grumbled along when Day One went subscription but bit the bullet: after all, I reasoned, they were offering cloud storage.
But I just can’t understand how this app can be considered well rounded and polished. The sync is a disaster: when I boot a device that hasn’t been used in a while, it creates duplicates all over the place. TextExpander breaks its Markdown syntax. And all manners of small bugs everywhere. Yes, the devs keep adding features but the existing ones are so flaky I am always afraid something will break.
I have moved to Diarly, offered in the Setapp subscription, and I’m very happy so far. It uses iCloud. It has end-to-end encryption. Its Markdown is basic but works. It’s not nearly as fancy as Day One but it works – and above all, it allows me to slash another subscription.
