One a Day
I’ve been radioing my head all day to figure out what to write about today. Mostly cause I haven’t seen any tech news that has jumped out at me that I feel like commenting on. But after using a app twice in a day I thought maybe that is what I should write about. So today I’m going to tell you all about one a day.
I’m pretty sure I haven’t talked about it before on this blog but if I have well I’m going to again cause it’s an app I really love and I don’t know if I could live with out it. For those of you who do not know, one a day is a journal app. In the past I have kept booth digital and physical journals. But I always ran into the problem of either losing them or just not having it around when I need it. My first digital journal was a floppy disk and I used Microsoft Works to write my entry’s and saved them with a password and then locked the floppy so it couldn’t be read if it was inserted accidentally.
But the problem with that was it wasn’t that covenant and probably not all that secure. About 2 years ago I herd about one a day. I’m not sure how I herd about it, it was either iPad Today or from appadvice.com. But either way it was an app I fell in love with cause it was simple and straight to the point. When you open the app it will ask you if you want to use iCloud or Dropbox to sync your entries. This so you can either write an entry from either your iOS devices or a Mac. I for one use it on all my devices I normally use it on my iPad or Mac when I want to write a long entry that could go on forever. I use my phone however when I’m out and about and I need to write a short entry either cause something or someone has pissed me off and I just need to write down quick how I’m feeling and what is going on in my head. Instead of say writing a tweet or a passive aggressive Facebook post.
I also like that one a day lets you add photos and embed YouTube videos when making entry’s. They also give you good way of keeping track of your entry’s by being able to tag your entry’s and even geo tag them. They can even kind of give you a snap shot of when you were writing the entry but showing what music might be playing and what the weather is at the time you wrote the entry. They also give a lot of ways for you to look at past entry’s with a calendar so you can a photo entry mode so you can see only entry’s that have photos attached to them or you can look at entries you favorited.
One a day is really a app I don’t think I could live with out and is certainly an app worth it’s price of $4.99. You can get it from the apple App Store here: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/day-one-journal-diary/id421706526?mt=8.
