Day One journal app updated with iOS 7 redesign, 64-bit support and M7 activity tracking

Day One, a popular app for journalling on the iPhone and iPad, has just received an important update. The app, now updated to version 1.12, features an iOS 7-style visual refresh, 64-bit support and incorporates data from the M7 motion coprocessor in the iPhone 5s for activity tracking.

Day One iOS 7 redesign

The team at Day One state that the new version is designed to match the new style and feel of iOS 7. The app features redesigned icons and navigation bars to fit in with iOS 7 while keeping the interface distraction free. The app is also now 64-bit ready so should perform really well on devices containing Apple’s 64-bit A7 chip.

An important addition is the support for the M7 motion coprocessor found in the iPhone 5s, iPad Air and all new Retina iPad mini. This enables Day One to automatically add more context to your journal entries, such as if you were walking, catching a flight or sat at your desk at the time of entry, as well as incorporating the daily step counter (iPhone 5s only).
