Have you ever heard or used Day One app? Day One is one of the most high rated journal app on iOS, but they now have android app aslo. It offers users to have digital journal which means can be kept almost forever. It also gives users an on-the-go journal which you can use whenever, wherever.
It sounds really great but if you’re used to writing on your notebook, it would be harder for you to move on this kind of journal.
I actually tried this for two months but I feel exhausted. It seemed like it doesn’t give me the good feeling of writing in a real journal. So I decided to stop my subscription and just uninstall it.
But you know what, I kept on giving this app a benefit of a doubt. I decided not to uninstall it yet until I found something on the web about automation in writing with Day One. I wondered how can I even automate something like journaling.
It showed me things about Workflow App. I’ve been seeing this on the app store for several times already and I don’t get what it is for. It says that this helps you automate writing stuff on Day One app. It also does other functionalities but the one that made me install it is the fact that it is integrated with Day One.
When I installed it, I had to figure out how to use it for over an hour. I am an undergraduate of BS Computer Science. I love programming and I found out that this workflow app is like a programming app. You need some technical skills to build a workflow. Which I find really nice. I love techie stuff.
Well I didn’t really mean giving up my notebooks. I just started my Bullet Journal recently and I don’t wanted to replace it completely by having this digital journal.
Workflow just enhanced my Day One usage. Basically, I used this for quick logs so that I have a record of what happened in a day in case I forgot to bring my notebook.
