Definitely a strong candidate for Journalling

A capable easy to use app accessible from all Apple devices. If you like it, go for it, as your choice of journalling tool is a very personal one.

However, in my case I am not yet sure. I need to use it for a few weeks in basic mode before finally deciding. Currently I am running a trial of 3 tools in parallel; namely, Diarium, Apple Notes, and OneNote. I have journaled in OneNote for over 5 years, but it may be time to move on as my computing platform is Mac once more.

The integration with apps (paid version) is cool, especially if you forget to do your journal on occasion.

Update: For reasons of continuity, I have decided to stick with OneNote for journaling as I am fully invested in Office 365. Apple Notes suffers from the lack of export capabilty for anything other than creating a pdf a single note at a time. This means you are stuck with a lot of work if you want to migrate your journal to something else.

I would reconsider Diarium as my journal app of choice if there was a tool to import all my OneNote journal pages into it in bulk.

Great Value

This is really excellent and I am able to use the app on my Mac, PC and iPhone. The only thing really missing is the ability to have different journals. I was planning switching to Day One but I think this is a more flexible app. Give me multiple journals and it will be perfect.

The best journal experience I've found

For a multiplatform journal with syncing across all devices this is the best experience I've found. Yes, you have to pay for the app on each platform but it still works out better value than a subscription.

The developer is top notch as well. He supports the app and maintains it constantly and listens to feedback.

I've been using this for months now and I will continue to do so for years to come if all goes well.
