@MrHenko I cannot be certain, but I seem to recall the Dropbox will ocr a pdf for you. And there are any number of iPhone apps that will create a pdf from a page. I use Tinyscan. For the notes, I would use plaintext and some kind of Zettelkasten. Their app The Archive is good.

@vasta That’s an interesting approach. What happens when you decide to stop subscribing to Day One?

@jeremycherfas Thanks, I'll look into Zettelkasten and The Archive app.

I did a quick googling about the Drobox ocr and it seems to be a Dropbox Business only feature and as of right now I'm not a Business customer.

@vasta Thanks, I'll look into Scanbot!

@MrHenko Sorry if I misled you on Dropbox. It was just a vague memory. I’ll be interested to watch how your note-taking develops.

@jeremycherfas Oh, no need to be sorry. I don't see that as misleading me in anyway. I appreciate all suggestions.

Glad to hear that you're keen on my results. I'll keep you - and the rest of the web - up to date.

@jeremycherfas Also, you are very quick with your replies today. Are you procrastinating actual work as hard as I am? :)

@MrHenko I certainly was this morning. Enjoying a bit of free time in the city, and so doing what everyone on public transport does and reading my phone.

@vasta I know that when I exported my entries from Day One Classic I was very disappointed by the attached photographs and how they were “attached”.

@vasta @jeremycherfas I have been burnt once when I lost the Day One extries. Since then, I have made it a point that everything I write exists as plain files first (mostly markdown) at multiple places.

@amit I’m the same. But although I have searched, I have not yet found an open-source solution -- that is one where I can keep a hold of my data -- that is either as easy to use or as pretty to look at as Day One.
