Day One 2 arrives

I’ve been waiting for this for some time now, and the new version of Day One (a personal journal app if you didn’t know) does look pretty good actually. Of course, it isn’t a ‘free’ upgrade. No, it’s a new app. I had suspected that it would go that way. I guess that’s ok. I know that it costs money and takes a lot of time to get new apps out, so you should expect it.

But it does look good though, and there’s a lot of new stuff in there too. I won’t go over everything they’ve done, because if you’re interested you can find all of that on their blog.

However, their roadmap is very interesting, because it includes:

  • Audio Recording
  • Places
  • Activity Feed
  • Night Mode
  • People Tags
  • Advanced Search (as a filter)
  • Publish 2.0
  • native embeds
  • attachments
  • and lots more…

That’s a good list. I especially like the audio recording option. However, one thing that I was expecting to see was IFTTT in there, but it isn’t there. Of course that doesn’t mean that it won’t be included. I really hope that it is.

I expect I’ll upgrade to it. Probably in the next day or so as it’ll go up in price soon. When I do I’ll let you know what I think of it.

Listening to the West Norwood Cassette Library

With a band name like that I could do nothing else but listen to them. I remember the days of using cassette libraries and borrowing tapes. All too often the tapes would be somewhat damaged and wobbly, but that was in many ways the nature of cassettes themselves.

Of course cassette libraries are all but gone now, but a band name like that makes me remember the old days, so, as I said before, I had to give them a listen, and guess what? Yep, I quite liked their stuff too!
