Talk about some serious journaling experience!

Introduced for the Mac in 2005 and the iPhone in 2010 (and the iPad version shortly thereafter) MacJournal for iPhone offers an even greater opportunity to document important life events while on the go. It's no wonder MacJournal is the world's most popular journaling app for the Mac.

Out and about? You know what we mean. Run here. Run there. And in between all that running, events happen. Then, when you’re able to stop and take a breath, you think to yourself, “Now, what was that thing that happened? I wanted to write it down.” – only to realize that you forgot what it was.

Now you don’t have to wait to until you sit at your desk to make an entry in your journal. MacJournal for iPhone gives you the ability to record an event or that special moment.

Organize, chronicle and edit your important information fast and on the fly. Best of all, unlike other journaling apps out there, you can blog to any of the popular blog sites using MacJournal. Not a blogger? Use MacJournal on its own or share your MacJournal data over the cloud with your other MacOS and iOS devices. Even share documents via iTunes. Whichever way, MacJournal has you covered.

-Create entries in multiple journals
-Attach images to your entries
-Edit styles in entries
-Using Dropbox, manage multiple MacJournal documents, that can reside on your device
-Share entries to Facebook and Twitter
-Blog from your journal on your iPhone or iPod Touch to one of a list of popular servers such as Blogger, Wordpress, Tumblr and Posterous

Sad version of a great desktop app

I love MacJournal for the Mac. I use it often. It is feature-rich, friendly and functional.

The iOS app, on the other hand, is terrible. It crashes often, loses text, deletes entries, and has several other bugs besides. If it worked, it would be great; its feature set is better in some ways than any app I've seen—creation of hyperlinks, posting to blogs, etc. But the incredibly buggy software, and the slow development cycle, leave very much to be desired.

Better journaling program for IOS

I’ve used MacJournal for years. The IOS version went through a little rough patch a few years ago and I switched to Day One. The feature set in that app is so limited compared to MacJournal. I switched back and was glad I did because the development team at MacJournal put a lot of effort into upgrading and improving the IOS app. Haven’t had a single problem since. Absolutely the best journaling app for IOS/MacOS.

Syncing between iOS and Mac

When you are like me you would like an autosync function that syncs your MacJ documents between all your devices automatically. Syncing with Dropbox makes this possible. Just make sure you close your MacJ app whenever you finish working if you intent to switch devices.
