Day One journaling app for iOS gets iOS 7 facelift, new features too

Day One, the award-winning journaling software for iPhone and iPad, has been updated to version 1.12. The new release has been redesigned to complement the style of iOS 7 and gains new features and functionality that make it easier to keep track of what you're doing.

The new version sports redesigned icons and navigation bars, and the iPad app has been enhanced to take better advantage of Retina Displays. And for the newest devices that sport the M7 coprocessor - the iPhone 5S, iPad Air and iPad mini with Retina Display - Day One also tracks what you were doing when you wrote your entry.

Day One also adds a "Step Count" feature so you can keep track of your movement, background fetch for Dropbox sync and tracks currently playing music.

Do you use Day One for journaling, or do you rely on another app? Journaling, what's that? What do you think about the "iOS 7ification" of apps? Sound off in the comments.
