Importance of Reflection

Since becoming a teacher I have reflected a lot as an educator in order to improve my own teaching style and model for my students what it means to put effort towards improving. Now having kids of my own reflecting on how fast they actually grow and develop becoming the humans beings they will be. Grid Classic 2 allows me to reflect on how fast they are growing up, they seem like new people every week. GC2 allows me to change topics as different things become more pertinent in raising them and their own interests change, and when ready I can share with them all of my joys, mistakes, worries, fears, pride, and resilience in parenting and enjoying who they are and are becoming. You’ve made a great app that is user friendly and incorporates so much. Thank you for your efforts. I cant wait to look back years down the road, shake my head and laugh at tragic comedy that is day to day parenting.

Unique, Customizable, Game-Changing App!!!

I’m only able to edit the review I have already made, but in doing so, I am “upping” my rating to 5 stars. There is truly no comparable application anywhere that even approaches the ease of use, abundant (and not bloated) features, with the number of customization tools available as Grid Diary 2! Anyone who uses this app can surely tell that there is a lot of love and care in its design, maintenance, and extension...I talk this app up to everyone I know who would be interested. There is literally simply nothing like it out there, and it truly is a game changer. 2 minor features I’d still love to see:
- In the “Timeline” context, using the filter function, the weather stickers and emoji stickers are not multi-select, while the flags are. I would think that if a user wanted to select all entries where they were either upset OR sad OR mad, they would be able to do so.
- A desktop version of the application and cross platform synch would be awesome as well. :)
All in all, this is a great app...well worth the meager price of subscription, and I certainly appreciate your efforts in delivering this kind of quality mobile application. It is truly a credit to your creativity, care, and tenacity to be able to produce something this amazing!

Most Important Journal App + Export to PDF

This is the absolute best journaling App for iOS. I’ve tried several in the past. The hardest part about keeping a journal is know what to write. This app makes it easy by suggesting questions to answer about your day, week, current events, what you have learned, or what is on your mind. I LOVE that I can customize my own template of questions. I LOVE that all of the questions are arranged in a “Grid” and I can answer all, one or none of them. Some of the custom questions I have created for my journal include:

Where did I see the hand of God in my life today?
What am I currently praying for?
Who needed a little extra attention or love today? What can I do for that person tomorrow?
What did I learn today?
What problems did I encounter today and how did I solve them?

As the cherry on top, you can easily export your entries into a PDF, which turns into a beautiful document. Using this app helped me to keep a more consistent journal than any other method I’ve tried.
