I’ve had my troubles with the storage options provided by Day One, and in the last few years I’ve put everything onto Dropbox because this option used to be way more stable and reliable than using iCloud.

• Web-based version of Day One
• Shared journals
• Multiple photos
• Journaling via email
• API and IFTTT integration
