Drawing has been the top feature request for a long time. We’ve been able to create a simple first version of drawing inside Day One to make it easy and fun to write words and draw using Apple Pencil on iPad, or your finger on iPhone.
Day One is the best journaling app out there, and 2018 has been the year for some killer features. The previous feature release brought with it audio recording and a true dark mode, two features I’ve wished Day One had since I started using the app in v1.
Honestly, I’m not as excited for drawing. Here’s why: OCR. I don’t sketch at all, but I do sometimes like to hand write my journal entries. While there’s value in journaling on paper, sometimes I want to have a digital archive of those journals. Handwriting recognition and OCR of images would make this the one place I could do all of my journaling, whether I’m writing it on my iPad with an Apple Pencil or snapping a photo of my paper entries for safe keeping.
Bloom does state in the release this is a first version of the feature, so I remain hopeful for the feature-completion of my main journaling app.
In addition to drawing, Day One now features new fonts from Hoefler & Co (Sentinel 😍), dynamic photo layouts, and the ability to record audio entries from the Apple Watch.
