Nice lightweight app for your journal!

I was looking for a tiny, lightweight app when I decided to start writing a daily journal again. And that’s exactly what mJournal is. It only needs minor disk space, it’s working fast, the design is pretty though simple and you can customize everything necessary, e.g. fonts, colors, margins etc. And although I am using Time Machine, I love the automatical snapshot feature. Because of this, I rate mJournal with 5 stars and Michael Wesemann can be sure, I gonna buy the pro version as soon as I have reloaded my gift card balance here on the shop :-)
