At one point, I had one database fully corrupted. After trying all my best, I sent it to Devonthink’s support group.
I was able to open the database after they did sth on it. But, I find most of my files were orphaned. After all the attempts of Repairing, restoring…I really had no option.

I went into the database get them out.

Hello Everyone,

I’m maker of Diarly.  Thank you for mentioning it here.

Diarly is intended to be replacement for paper diary. Its influenced by meditations by Markus Aurelius (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Meditations).

It’s still quite early stage as Stephen and MadaboutDana mentioned but i’m planning to add some more useful features.

I’m currently working on iPad version. My list of things for mac right now are:
- Gallery for all the photos
- Locations (working similar way to tags)
- More importers from competitors
- Better feedback / forum alike for people to participate in the direction of Diarly (now i’m trying to reach people myself)

Notes without days - it’s tempting for me as i use notes for quotes, wish lists, knowledge base etc. But not sure how to add it without making product too big.

Would love to get your opinions on what is the feature you would need most.

We discussed a new diary/note-taking app called Diarly in this thread. Diarly just came out with an iOS companion, which in early testing syncs nicely via iCloud with the MacOS version.

Thank you for the update, Steve.

I bought Diarly for macOS and it easily—and as far as I can tell accurately—imported a zipped archived of all my DayOne entries in JSON format.  That checks a big box on the path to eliminating DayOne.

The Diarly iOS app is iPad only for now—it would seem an iPhone version would not be difficult.  For me, iPhone journaling is what I prefer so I’ll wait for the iOS piece.

Diarly on macOS does not yet have share extension or quick entry widget, both of which I use a lot to send snippets to DayOne.  I’ve asked the developer for both, so maybe someday we’ll see those too.

I parted ways with DayOne when they moved to subscription. Is the “full version” of this a subscription as well?
