Printing please!

My daughter loves this app especially because I make a big family year book every year the only with it though is that I can’t print out her pages like I can the yearbook ! Although over all a very good game!

Developer Response ,

We are delighted that you’re enjoying the app. Thank you for your feedback about printing.

We have updated DiaryZapp so that you can save a copy of your child’s journal page to your device gallery and print a copy from there.

I paid two dollars for something that is awesome! But can you add a password and some more features? Thanks

No password to view diary?!

There should at least be an option to require a password or pin of the zapper to enter the diary or read an existing diary entry. (Who doesn’t want a lock on their diary?!) A pin is especially necessary if the app holds more than one zapper. It seems like a cool diary app (pictures, doodles, text that can be directly typed in or added with speech-to-text microphone), but the lack of pin code really bothers me.
