Favorite and only note app to use!

With this app I can create entries by the date and also have access to the months in a calendar format to tap what I wrote on a particular date. I can search for entries and attach photos. I have been looking for all of these features and found them in this one app. All of my notes have been saved. This app is very user friendly.

Nice App!!

I love the layout and cleanliness of the app, as well as it’s functionality. When it comes to personal journaling, I prefer something a little more secure with end-to-end encryption, but for general note taking and some light journaling, it’s really good in that regard.

The more I use it the more I love it

This has it all! And I still am not making full use of it. Very flexible! I get to be in charge and create folders etc that I want! Plus the developer is very responsive
