- I use Day One, primarily on my iphone, to record my thoughts every single day. I have a daily reminder setup to help me maintain the habit. Day One let's you create different journals within the app, so I have a general journal to record the daily happenings and a separate journal for things I've learned.
My favorite feature in Day One 2.0 is the daily prompt. Instead of letting my journal become the 'Rant of the day' entry, Day One attempts to help me create a rich and personal record with their creative prompts.
I bought the iOS app awhile ago, so I was on the grandfathered Plus plan. I wanted to sync with the Mac app, so I went ahead and bought the 50% discounted premium plan. I like it, but I thought the Mac app would have more formatting options than the iPhone. It doesn't. It's basically a larger version of the iOS app.
It's way too expensive if you're not on the plus plan. It's expensive even with the plus plan. You can't use iCloud for storage either, which I don't understand. Having cloud storage can be expensive for companies, so they increase the prices, but they removed iCloud sync, so now everyone uses their cloud storage.
- This is technically a tool for teams to quickly report all the things you've done as they happen. Out of the box, it sends you an email each day asking you what you've done and you can reply to add it to the list (or use their website, or just send an email to it). What's more interesting is integrating iDoneThis with Slack or other 3rd party tools like Alfred on Mac or even the command line to update your status making it accessible from just about anywhere.
