    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.
