Great Journaling App
I was using Day One, but have been frustrated by the limitation of only one picture per entry. Then I found Dailybook, which has a very similar look, but does allow multiple pics and audio files per entry. Also, unlike Day One, Dailybook has multiple journals, touch to edit ( instead of an EDIT button ), and captions for images.
For me the biggest drawback of Dailybook, compared to Day One, is that the Dailybook has a very awkward way to "synch" between devices. Basically you save your entire journal as a backup to Dropbox from one device then go to the other device and do a restore journal from Dropbox. This overwrites everything in Dailybook on the second device and replaces it with the backup. It works, but is VERY awkward. Day One does it seamlessly in the background with incremental updates to Dropbox that are automatically shared on all devices. Much better.
For me the ability to have multiple pics associated with one entry is worth the hassle of synching. If they can improve the synch I will give them the fifth star.
Great app with multiple journals!
I had been using an app that I really liked for about 5 years (Journals), but the developer was no longer able to update it...and so began my search for something similar, which has been frustrating until I came across Dailybook. It’s the closest I have found, and like my other app, the developer responds to all my questions and fixes things quickly. I haven’t been using it very long yet and haven’t even tried all the features. Some things I would like to see is having all the journals on one page instead of scrolling through each, and be able to insert a picture on the front, or be given different cover options. I would also like to have more font options, i.e. underline, highlight, bold, etc. One more thing that would be good is a separate home button instead of being hidden in settings.
Even though it doesn’t have everything I would like (yet)😉,I am giving it 5 stars because it’s a really good app and the developer seems very responsive to suggestions and so quick to respond.
It's Important to Backup this App
One of my favorite apps, without question. BUT recent updates can create some problems. I, too, lost my colored backgrounds today.
Though I've had the app over a year, I backed it up for the first time last week. Restoring brought back the colored background.
E-mailed app creator. They responded saying colored backgrounds have been eliminated to make room for other features. They may be available in later updates. Over 120 fonts and only 2 background colors seems a bit out of balance to me. After the shift to the white icon (and back again) a few months ago, I have to assume they are moving towards a monotone color scheme.
UPDATE. 7/2/17 I am still using this app. Despite my above complaints, I find a certain elegance in its' simplicity.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
