My favorite journal app ever !!

All other apps have a too much on the screen or dont have enough features, but Diarly has it all. Such a clean and simple design, but still has so many tools to personalize. I love it !! I use it for all my journaling purposes. I got the premium for both my iphone and mac, the one time payments beat ANY subscription app.

Best thing about Diarly is how thoughtful the developers are. Any suggestions, no matter how small, are noted with care. It truly makes Diarly the perfect app!! I'd recommend this app to anyone who's interested in journaling.

Best journaling app! Better than DayOne

The User Interface of this app is beautiful! It works perfectly, syncs with my Apple devices easily, and has a simple design that helps me stay focused on just journaling. I also love that this app isn’t subscription based. You only pay to use the pro abilities but honestly so worth it! It was like roughly a $24 ONE TIME PAYMENT to have all the pro benefits on all my apple devices, and that beats paying any subscription price. This app is the way to go for the best journaling experience. :)

Fantastic simple interface

I had to build a migration tool to get my data out of Written Down, but once I had my data out, it was easy to use and the writing interface is super smooth.

I particularly like going to the following Friday and adding a To-Do list for stuff to keep an eye on over the next week. It stays at the top of the timeline and serves as a nice reminder to be productive. It also shows how much I got done (or didn’t) in a week.
