Looking for a Day One Alternative?

Journey is your choice if you're looking for a digital journal that is made to last forever.

Journal app is one of the most-used tools to store your memories. With so many journal apps out there, it’s hard to determine which one fits your needs. At first, Day One made digital journal available for people on iOS and Mac. However, as it grew larger, its prices rose. This made the platform less accessible, unless you could afford to pay more.

So why use Journey as a Day One Alternative?

"Journey's feature-rich journal app makes it an ideal alternative to Day One."
