Popular iOS journaling app, Day One, just got an iOS 7 update. The latest version includes an iOS 7 redesign, 64-bit support, and special features for iPhone 5s, iPad Air, and the new iPad Mini.

Since its first release in the Spring of 2011, Day One has gained traction because of its attractive user interface and ease of use. The iOS 7 update includes redesigned icons, a navigation bar, and font style changes for menus.

Day One 3

All users can now select to add the currently playing song on their iPhone to a journal entry, in addition to the current weather status and GPS location. The song information appears at the bottom of the journal entry after it is saved.

Day One 2

The update also includes support for retina devices, and activity and daily step tracking. When you start a new journal entry, you can select to have Day One add the activity you are engaged in at the time of your writing. For iPhone 5s users, the app will stamp the amount of steps you have taken for that day, up until the time start the new entry.

All app users can record their motion activity (stationary, walking, running, biking, eating, automotive) for a new entry. However, there doesn’t seem to be a way to search entries by activity.

Day One 1

For users who sync their Day One journal between multiple devices using Dropbox, you will be pleased to know that the new update takes advantage of iOS 7’s new background fetch for Dropbox, which will sync entries even when the app is closed.

While there are several other feature requests Day One users are waiting for (e.g., multiple journals and social network integration), the new update makes the app even more of a pleasure to use. Let us know what you think of the update and what additional features you would like to see added.
