The company is very responsive. I used their internal messaging system built into DayOne Classic and DayOne 2 and sent a note about the security risk due to the inability to easily enter a pass code and lock the program from prying eyes for VoiceOver users. Steven, who works there, told me that this would be in the next release in a couple of weeks. The company is also friendly about other ideas I have asked about.

The new interface is both much more accessible and much more usable. This is definitely one of my favorite apps.

I just got this app, and I have to say, after playing around with it for a few hours I really like it, and if anyone wants keep a diary of sorts this app is very good, especially that the interface is very simple and not full of unnecessary elements. I really think the developers did a great job with this one.

Does anyone know how to get back the entries that you had in previous version after updating to this new version? I have contacted Customer Support already. I haven't gotten a response yet.

Hi Deb,
I imported my entries from DayOne Classic by going into Settings. I pressed the Advanced button. Then I swipped to the right until VoiceOver said "Import from DayOne Classic." I doublt tapped on that item, and was able to get my entries.

The makers of DayOne have now labeled the Pass Code numbers so that VoiceOver users can enter a pass code to lock DayOne from prying eyes. You have to double tap the buttons to make the numbers register. Other updates are coming fast.

Where can I set the password so that no one except me can open the app and look at entries?

It has been a long time since someone posted about the accessibility of this app, so I’m wondering if it is still accessible?

Some UI choices seem counterintuitive for me, but you can do everything within the app, nothing I've tried was inaccessible.
