Six months ago, Day One 3.0 for iOS was launched — so it's exciting to see the Mac app also get a matching update focused on speed, performance, and long-term maintainability, as well as some enhancements: - New: Single-entry window - New: Editor selection and text formatting menus

Great to see macOS update. Cons: dual pane of list and entries are somewhat distracting. Please add option to show list in single view.

Day One is one of the few apps that I pay for. I tried Journey, Evernote, Dropbox Paper, Typora, and Google docs + Google Calendar for journaling. What made Day One stand out was the photos and the calendar views. If you don't need those, you can get by with other solutions but they really make a difference. As you long as they don't make breaking changes, I'll be a lifetime customer 😎 (Recently, they made a breaking change with Android where we aren't able to edit anymore)

@charleshancom I would add voice notes to your list. It is very convenient to add audio into your editor

Thanks for the Hunt! This has been a major focus for our team and there's a lot more we've got planned to further improve, and enhance.

I didn't like your iOS app initially, but now that I've seen a Mac version, Day One is very appealing! If I install a journaling habit in the future, I'll be using this. Also, for me a yearly calendar view would be useful, where you can scroll up and down through months.

Pros:

- Beautiful design and intuitive navigation. - Convenient formatting with an option to clear all effects (!). - Custom font.

Cons:

- Couldn't readily find shortcuts, only discovered them buried in settings.

Those shortcuts exist. It uses markdown. So... Heading shortcut: #Heading List shortcut: - list item
