New [awful] update

I love DayOne. I 've been using it for more than a year and reccomend it to all my friends - it's easy, it's comfortable, it looks good.
It had looked good.
I don't know why somebody decided that design needed to be changed, but now it looks like poorly made version for windows vista. Including the pop-up window with reminders. Why? Can't bring myself to open this, and really thinkabout chaging the app.

All in all, I enjoy using it. It has the option to create templates, reminders, the overall look and feel is nice. I love that you may keep a few journals at the same time, add tags, location, weather, etc.
However, I have problems syncing the Mac version with my iPhone version + I would love to edit photos, e.g. crop them, when I insert them they are just so huge. I hope to resolve these issues with the new updates.
