This is more practical than conventional paper diaries, just because you can find and access to all your notes in a timeline, place time stamps automatically, and it keeps it very simple. But it would really make it better than using conventional diaries if we could attach images to our entries, maybe voice notes... Those are a big plus that really changes the game and would take conventional diaries users to using this app in my opinion. This is the only app that I’ve used and haven’t deleted it because it’s overcharged, good point for you guys, but the feature of adding pictures or voice notes wouldn’t necessarily ruin your minimalist style and I find that it is actually useful.

There is an elegance to DayGram. It allows me to have the timeline benefits of a "journal" without running into a plethora of interface distractions. It can be backed up via iCloud and Dropbox. Journal apps blare with statistics; how many entries, how many today, options to add hash tags, share to social media, add photos. I don't need all that. With DayGram I get a date stamp, a time stamp option and a blank page, thank you. DayGram lends to writing minimalism—often a simple snapshot of the day or an event, but longer entries are just fine. In the rare case an image is desired, the option sits innocuously at the bottom right of the page as an almost invisible icon. --- The two things DayGram lacks are a "dark mode" for nighttime writing and, at least, a couple more font options. I'd pay to have these options added. The holy grail, personally, would be the option to add a custom font. --- In terms of the In-App purchase: I would point out that almost no one wants "themes" that involve generic stock photography backgrounds. That may have been true 5 or 6 years ago. Now most people prefer to add their own image—if they even want one BEHIND their writing. This strange option is the only place DayGram really goes off the rails of its elegant minimalism.
I have been writing about this problem for some time now. I have been using this app for years (since 2018). It crashes every single time I try to do a search. Certain letter combinations will crash it when searching. There are only a few that won’t. It was updated 3 weeks ago but it isn’t fixed. It crashes on my iPhone 13 Pro. I tried it on my old iPad and it does the same thing so I know it’s not the new phone. I NEED this function because I use this ALL THE TIME! Are you seeing this review? Please help!
