The Best Journaling App I Have Ever Used

Finally there is a journaling app I can feel good about. I have used a number of different journaling apps over the years but Dyrii is the only one that is feature rich and promises to protect my privacy. Think about this, journals have always been private things. So why would you use a journaling app that does not protect your privacy? If you want a public journal then blog.

Dyrii has some unique features that I especially appreciate such as afterthoughts, diary writing with Apple Pencil, and tracking trail walks rides. Yes this feature is present in Google Maps and Foursquare but with Dyrii it is safely recorded in your iCloud account and not on a third party server. In fact Dyrii is so feature rich that it probably has whatever feature one would reasonably want in a journaling app including the ability to migrate my data from Day One. For me Dyrii has been some of the best money I have ever spent on an application. My only regret is that I did not discover it sooner.

Initial reaction is very positive

I’ve just started using Dyrii, but I wanted to write this early review because I had a problem with subscribing and sent a support email on a Sunday and got an almost immediate reply. Together we worked out the problem. I was very impressed with the support. So five-stars for that!

I also am giving five-stars for a feature that I haven’t seen in other journal apps. After you’ve written a journal entry, you can add “Afterthoughts.” These look like text messages that you write to yourself as you have different thoughts about the original content of the entry. I love this feature. There is a difference between appending or editing an entry — which, of course, you can do with Dyrii — and applying these short afterthoughts. It can really help you see how your thoughts have evolved, or highlight new information that came in after the initial entry was written. Bravo.

So far the rest of the app works as expected.

Hands down the best journal app

I used Day One before it added encryption back in 2014; I had been devoted to MacJournal since and had to look for an alternative because MacJournal for iPad does not seem to work well syncing across platforms. I also tried Journey before Dyrii but ran into immediate road blocks because it only supports import from Day One. I was able to import into Dyrii flawlessly with years of journaling intact. In addition, I am able to use Dyrii on iPad, iPhone and Mac efforlessly! I am simply in love with Dyrii since it works syncing across platforms, easy portability from other journaling apps, geolocation, tagging, and Audio notes – all features that make this a powerful journaling app. I post way more with Dyrii! Thanks for creating such an awesome and superior product, I couldn’t wait to buy the Premium version!
