Status Update: Day One Classic Sync (via Dropbox) & Life Journal Mobile

Android Day One Dropbox Features iOS Life Journal Mac OSX Mobile Support Sync

Bloom Built has recently announced that they are retiring Day One Classic. This comes at a time where Dropbox has also retired its API v1 - which is what Day One Classic used to sync its data with Dropbox.

What this essentially means is that Life Journal can still sync your entries with the Day One Classic folder in Dropbox, but the Day One Classic app on your iOS device will be unable to sync those entries to the device. Similarly any entries you create on your iOS device using the Day One Classic app will no longer sync to Dropbox - and hence won't show up in the Life Journal app.

Where do we go from here?

Life Journal can still be used as a great standalone journal/diary app - even without its Day One integration. You can choose to import your data from Day One (either Classic using sync or Day One v2) and then continue using Life Journal to manage your entries.

I wanted to let you know that I am currently working on the multi-platform versions of the Life Journal app. The OSX version of the app is almost ready. I still do need to test it quite a bit more before I release it. 

I am also working on a mobile version of the Life Journal app that can be used on Android and iOS devices.

Life Journal Mobile

This is progressing nicely but there are quite a few things that need to be done. There are quite a lot of platform specific peculiarities that need to be addressed for both iOS and Android - and this is taking up quite a bit of time and effort. But the biggest thing is to have a bulletproof mechanism for syncing data with Dropbox. I want to use Dropbox for sync - instead of implementing my own sync mechanism - and I want it to be solid before I release the app.

Please sign up for the newsletter and I will post updates as I get closer to release. I may even reach out to some of my users to help with the Beta testing of the apps. Stay tuned.
