Paul Mayne, on Day One:
Apple’s recent unveiling of a Journal app at WWDC was an exciting development for us at Day One. This app introduces a wider audience to the benefits of journaling by incorporating personal location history and photo libraries, much like our Today view. What’s more, Apple’s new Suggestions API should allow us to leverage this data for an even richer Day One experience.
I’ve been a Day One user for almost a decade — and I use it everyday for the last 6 years. So it’s an app I use a lot. I plan to continue to use it, but in a way I’m happy with Apple pushing them along. While its backend has improved considerably in the last few years — the front end has stayed pretty consistent, in a boring way.
