Good news for folks who use Day One this morning. The popular journal app has been updated with a new iOS 7 design and several new features, including support for Apple’s new 64-bit A7 processor.
Additionally, the update, which brings the app to version 1.12, includes support for the new M7 coprocessor. And this allows the app to do things like count your steps and auto-track your daily activities…
Here is the full change log for version 1.12:
- New iOS 7 Design
- Automated activity data tracking for iPhone 5s
- Daily Step Counting (M7 coprocessor required)
- Speed improvements and optimizations
- Additional weather source: forecast.io
- Add currently playing music track info to entry
- Fix issues with iPhone 5s panoramas
As far as the new design goes, if you’ve been digging other big-name app iOS 7 redesigns, you’ll love it. It has the usual large white spaces, flat text and simplified icons that we’ve seen in other iOS 7 updates.
And as for the new features, I haven’t been able to test the daily step counter, but the ability to add info from the song you’re currently listening to is a nice touch. It looks like this is for Music app only though.
If you haven’t tried it yet, and have been looking for a journal app, I recommend checking Day One out. It has a 5-star rating on both mobile and Mac, and you can find the app in the App Store for $4.99.
