Desktop is fine- mobile app needs work

I like goodnight journal as a website on which to journal. I’ve used many others... this one is ok- because it’s easy to use. The app itself is very annoying to actually WRITE ON because there is no easy spell check, no auto correct... I mean you’re writing out your thoughts, on your phone, often quickly. And the app recognizes your typos but you click on them it and does nothing. It’s not intuitive. You have to press and HOLD in order to get up to your underlined word, and then erase it and retype the word yourself. Very frustrating for a Journaling app, because you’re usually typing out your thoughts quickly and there are lushly typos as you go. And the app makes it hard to fix them. Make the writing process easy and intuitive, and it gets 5 stars :)

Love the simplicity

Goodnight Journal stands out to me out of all other journal apps because of the simplicity. Its simple User interface allows me to keep my journal easy and fast. It works better on web browser but iOS app works pretty good too.

The community is also nice to see what others write on their journals!

Glad to hear that you like Goodnight Journal. We just launched the new mobile app and it will work just good as web browsers :) Enjoy journaling!

Why Change It?

An Updated Post:

Good night journal is gone. Now it’s a pay to join site. It says free but you can’t do anything unless you pay $40 a month? That’s a rip off. All of my journals that I wrote, all 400+ are all gone because when I tried to log in, it says my account doesn’t exist. Why is everyone so obsessed with changing things that work but don’t change things that don’t work? Disappointed. I wish I could give it zero stars.

Thank you for the review and I'm so sorry that you are disappointed. Please use the contact page on Goodnight Journal for your account. All your past journals are still safely kept and you have the same access to it as before.

Goodnight Journal is still free for writing private journals as many as you want. We launched annual membership plan for $39.99 per year that give you an access to write public and comment on public journals.

Please contact us for your account. I will make sure to help you to get all your journals back. I totally understand how important it is for you.
