This is a spur of the moment post, but one of our favorite apps just came out with a new version and it is 50% off for a limited time. If you are like me, you love the idea of journaling but if you write a lot, you fill up journals and journals take up space.

Introducing Day One 2 Journal + Notes the amazing journaling app that makes writing down your thoughts, workouts, or notes fun and easy. I’ll boil down why I love it to 3 reasons:


  1. Versatility: While this app is great for journaling, it is also great for logging your daily workout. Since I’m a CrossFitter we often do benchmark workouts that we repeat every few months or so. With the tagging feature I can tag the workout name and find it easily later on. If you choose to, you can also have it tell you the temperature outside at the time you did the workout. So if you’re a runner and want to see what your 5K pace was in January when it was 30° versus when it was in July when it was 98°, Day One 2 will be great for you. It can also track your location, so if you ran around your neighborhood or a local park, Day One 2 will remind you where you were.
  2. Add Pictures: Maybe your daughter just had her sixth birthday, or you went and visited your grandkids and you have a great picture from the park, with Day One 2 you can pop your favorite pictures right into your post so that you’ll never forget the best moments of your days.
  3. Simplicity: This app makes journaling fun, easy, and simple. I love scrolling through the time line and seeing what I did months before and what was on my mind.

Don’t miss out on this great deal. Right now the iPhone/iPad app costs $4.99 and the Mac app costs $19.99. After this week it’ll bump up to $9.99 and $39.99, so if one of your new year’s resolutions was to journal more, this app will help you accomplish that.
