I write longform journal entries on Day One on my Mac, mainly for the keyboard and screen space. Works fine. Most of my in-the-minute journaling (food journal, notes) is done on my phone.
It’s text. I occasionally but rarely attach a pic to my longform notes but were it not for the social, storage and cross-platform features of the app I could easily be writing in BBEdit or Ulysses, where I could choose any font I’d like. That’s my main bugbear about Day One (and many other apps): the limited font choice.
OK, I could Google this question but I’m lazy: What are the social features of Day One?
Two things keep me in Day One: One is that I’ve been using it for years. The other is that a main use for me is as a kind of FourSquare-for-one – I use it to check in to locations. I haven’t found an alternative to Day One for that. Suppose I could use Swarm but why give that information to someone else?
