Ratings and Reviews
This app is very simple and effective. I love how customizable everything is. It is missing a few basic features of other common journaling apps, but the customization aspect makes this app stand out above others. The developer also responds very quickly to feedback and seems to have a lot of good ideas in the works. I can’t wait to see how this app evolves, although I will say it is already very useful.
Just about perfect!
I've only been using this app for a week or so, but already it's been pretty amazing. Here are a few things I love about it:
- I can make templates, but better yet while I'm filling one out, I can edit it and it updates the template I'm currently using live vs having to flip back and forth between tweaking my template and adding my entry (very easy to build your templates as you journal)
- Backup (on free)
- Simple interface that stays out of your way
- No ads or anything like that in your way
- You can add images to build a good memory
- You can tell the author probably uses it themselves (very high quality)
- Export as PDF (paid) is why I would pay for it (backup and portability if the app goes under is very important)
Here are some things I think need improvement:
- Sometimes export (as image) doesn't work (but I'm gonna pay for PDF)
- The skinny view is annoying, go full width
- When answering questions return should start a new answer
- Allow questions to be numbered somehow
- Sometimes when live editing a template the text screws up the UI (favorite feature though)
- When adding an image let me take a picture (vs having to switch to camera app)
But how templates work alone in this app and that it's such high quality alone give this app a place on my home screen.
Developer Response ,
Thank you for this amazingly detailed positive review! Yes I do use this journal myself and so I do try to make it a certain quality :)
All your suggestions sound great. Will keep it on the backlog and work through them over future updates. Thanks for the feedback. This is helpful and very much appreciated!
Update: The option to take a picture via the app and line numbers for questions has been added!
Journaling made convenient
This app has provided a convenient way for me to do daily journaling for my different interests. I have daily templates, weekly templates, and yearly templates. I also like the different options I can put on a journal page: questions, checklists, banners, etc. It’s not perfect but it’s good enough for a free resource.
