      Journey vs Day One opinions
      Most users think Journey is a great alternative to Day One.
      It doesn’t offer options as nearly as DayOne. It doesn’t even back up locally without a Cloud account. I hate Google, I ditched all its services after years so it doesn’t work for me. Of course, others will find it useful.

      pros, cons and recent comments
      Markdown support is a great feature in Diarly. It is also much more customizable than Day One. There is also the added benefit of this being included in SetApp, so it is a nobrainer to pick this over Day One if you have the SetApp subscription rather than pay for Day One's additional subscription.

      greentea1 Diarly is simple, minimalistic, and beautiful, it packs so many great features but also gets out of the way to let you focus on your writing and nothing else. Day One is too cluttered, in my opinion.
