This app is quite cool

:) This app is quite cool. It helps me put my mind in order. The bas thing is that the questions are limited and if you want more you have to pay, but i think its worth it. Anyway, if u expect to use it very often, at least you dont mindr replying to the same questions or spend quite a lot of money, it would become boring.

Best Journalling App for Writers

Many journalling apps I've tried - and I've tried lots - are either too prescriptive, assuming, for example you will include photos, or too blank and offer no obvious value over an ordinary text file. Others are either too businesslike and dull in appearance, or way too cutesy-wootsy for a grown adult. But this one combines an attractive, modern interface - why are so many apps mired in Seventies browns, wood-effects and murky colours ? - with useful but by no means prescriptive prompts. You can edit these, add to them and tell the app to ignore those you don't like. This is a serious piece of kit to get any writer's ink-veins flowing and establish the habit of daily writing. That it has a word counter with average daily counts, etc., makes this easily the best journalling app for serious writers. But it is likely to appeal also to those who want to blog, or keep a travel journal, or just use as a reminder and planner, with or without the (inexpensive) in-app add-ons. In the end, it's simply a really good, attractive journalling app for anyone and any purpose.

Since I wrote the first part of this review some months ago I find I like this app more and more. I'm now adding my own questions to 'interrogate' characters from my work. I can't claim that I've been able to establish a daily journalling habit, despite asking the app to nag me, but I rarely manage to establish any habit, so this is less the app's fault than my own wayward personality, immune to nagging from any source. But in this, too, the app helps, the interface not too bossily punitive if you do skip a few days/weeks/eons. It's like a faithful dog that just seems pleased to see you again, without any glaring calendar pointing out how neglectful you've been.
If you write, this app is one of the very best in the entire App Store, and, in my view, the very best journalling app you could hope to find.

Addendum 2
Oh, dear. Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear. My all-time-favourite app no longer works. Why? It was a superb app for writers, the best of the entire App Store. But now when I try to write I can no longer see what I'm writing as the text seems to scroll off the top of the page.
Is the app no longer supported? Please say it isn't so! With this fault fixed, and updated for the latest iOS it could — and should — be promoted as the No1 app for writers, prompting specific aspects of the daily writing practice we should all do, with pre-set prompts and allowing you to set your own tailored prompts too.
With more and more people interested in writing it seems crazy and sad for this perfect app to be broken in this way.
Please, developers, get this fixed and maybe rename your app in a way that specifically attracts would-be writers and also more experienced and published writers.
Don't let this Bambi die!

My favourite

This is my favourite journaling app. Doesn't get in my way, simple interface and I use the questions for those days when I'm stuck. Recommended for anyone who needs to get into the habit of keeping a diary.
