Editors’ Notes

It’s hard to make the best even better, but the sequel to Day One lives up to expectations—and then some. The app keeps its interface streamlined but adds a wealth of new valuable features. Your journal entries contain all sorts of information—you can geolocate them, add tons of photos to each entry, and even see your day’s fitness activity. Switch over to the beautiful new photo view when you’re ready to see your world at a glance.

Espantosa actualización. Una estafa!!!

Me fastidia tener que pagar mes a mes para subirme al premium. Como si uno no tuviera ya bastantes pagos, voy yo ahora a pagarle al desarrollador de esta app 3 o 4 euros de propina por mantener características que en la versión anterior eran completamente gratis, como la sincronización entre dispositivos. Vamos, hay que joderse! El día uno para mí hoy va a ser encontrar otra aplicación igual de válida que esta para escribir mi día a día.

Bona app agenda
