Day One iOS App Review
Day One is a Diary/Journal app that is as elegant as it is simple to use. Consider it a microblogging style of journal keeping. You pull up the app on your phone, hit the + sign and enter in a small bit of text about your life, hit save and your done.

carpe-jvgvlvm asked: Re: review for Camera+, anything similar for Andriod phones that you know of? I use Camera Zoom FX ($4), mainly because it has burst mode (ONLY Android app like that) and lets you tap to snap, but the effects aren't worth writing home about.
