Journaling has, to some, become a relic; an item of the past which is no longer relevant. With children of the Facebook age growing farther apart from textile books, writing a diary has become a lost art. People now prefer to use Facebook (or Twitter) as their journal of everything that takes place in their life. It’s understandable since you can share all of the activity there with your friends, but what about all those private things and thoughts you’ve had throughout the day? What, are you going to Tweet them or something? No, I have a better idea.
iPads are great for almost anything and, if you’re comfortable with typing on one, why not use it for journaling as well? Bloom Built’s Day One is by far the best solution to this. Our own Nathaniel Mott reviewed this app last November, giving it a 9/10 for outstanding design and the many handy features. Now, nearly a year later, the developer has added some great new key features like photos, geotagging, weather and Foursquare check-ins. I’m going to take a look at the new features after the break, so why don’t you join me? (more…)

Two weeks ago we reviewed an awesome journalling app for the iPad called Day One. I’m happy to announce that we now have 5 promo codes for Day One to give away to the readers of AppStorm!
Nathaniel Mott describes how:
Day One is an app designed to allow you to capture your thoughts and create journal entries anywhere you happen to be, giving you powerful tools to keep a journal that syncs across devices but also offers advanced features for deeper customization and protection against prying eyes.
There is no shortage of writing apps for the iPad.
Some focus on being as minimal as possible, others focus on new and innovative features to take advantage of the possibilities afforded by a 9-inch touchscreen. Many of these are focused on publishing, but what of that most intimate form of writing, journaling?
The iPad is the same size as many of the journals that used to reside under beds or in secret cupboards hidden in a nightstand; what better way to marry the old and the new than with a journal? Day One aims to do just that.
