Jour is here to help you feel your best. The app offers both a private, portable journal as well as guided Journeys, which each offer a step-by-step approach to specific areas for growth, such as: feeling calmer, sleeping better, combatting anxiety, and improving mental health.
Journaling is a mindful practice, recommended by therapists, counselors, and health professionals. It's a great way to improve mental health, identify and manage sources of stress and anxiety, and become more present. It's also a self-care habit that's easy to adopt and can be done no matter your past experience with mindfulness or mediation.
Thousands of people are already using Jour to be more mindful, feel more gratitude, better their mental health, increase focus, or decrease stress. Inspired by some of the healthiest and most powerful therapy practices, the app provides an interactive approach to mindfulness while encouraging personal growth. Plus, with your in-app profile, you can see how much and how often you journal, tracking your own progress in real time.
With Jour, you can:
* Easily adopt a new mental health practice

Ratings and Reviews
One of the best apps ever... but the update is a bit frustrating
I love Jour. I downloaded it during a time of personal hardship and it helped me a lot to go through each day and just write everything, or anything, about my day. It kept me sane and happy even though sometimes life was kind of rough. Therefore, I’ve grown very fond of writing my Daily Reflections each night before bed.
But now, with the Daily Jour, I don’t get to answer as many questions, nor do they seem to reflect on the day I’ve had. I really appreciate going through my entries sometimes and reading them to see how far I’ve come, and it makes me a bit frustrated to see that none of the questions seem to even ask about my thoughts, feelings, or actions of the day. I do enjoy how there is a clear purpose to the questions and how they’re supposed to shape the next day, but I find myself missing the act of reflecting.
Of course, this is just a personal opinion and I will still be using Jour everyday, I just really hope that one day the Daily reflections will make an appearance once again.
I love this app ... however
I love this app, I can already tell it will be my new favorite thing. Providing proper structure for someone logging their life is extremely important and this app does just that, all while giving you the option to write freely. However, I soooo wish that this app supported writing on the iPad Pro with your Apple Pencil. I love journaling but one of my favorite things about it is the ability to see and remember the emotions attached to my own handwriting. I hope this is something they’d consider in a future update.p (sooner than later). I would love to —literally—be able to write in this journal. The only reason for 4 stars instead of 5.
Update: This is a probably a bug but this is app is lacking in additional security. I turned off the Face ID feature and the app does not ask for a passcode or key phrase to view my entries. Additionally, when I attempt to view my entry for the day in my daily reflection it does no allow me but instead takes me back to the introduction page.
Developer Response ,
Hi there - Thank you for your feedback! Your pencil idea is a great insight and something that our team is discussing for a future update to the app.
You can find all past entries in a Journey - such as Daily Reflection - by tapping into the Journey and then scrolling down in the Journey's home screen.
Lastly, we only require these two security measures when you're logging in to the app. You can always log out or, if you would like to lock the app while logged in, we offer the ability to implement Face or Touch ID. However, rest assured that all your entries are only readable on your device, while you're logged in. They are encrypted with your Key Phrase. Only you, when you enter your Key Phrase, decrypt and open the entries. No one else - not even our team - has access to see or reset your Key Phrase either.
If you need anything else or you want to share any additional feedback with us, feel free to reach out shaking your phone while logged in to the app or by clicking on the icon on the bottom right and then selecting Feedback & Support.
Actually just a journal (yay!)
Love this app completely. Lots of other apps that describe themselves as journals feel a lot like writing an Instagram post to yourself. They don’t seem like centers for organization or reflection, just a loose collection of random flashy functions.
Jour is literally just a journal with a few interesting videos and articles on journaling. Instead of journaling + a calendar + etc. etc., you open the app and you get a nice relaxing UI where you can choose to either to do one of a few pre-set exercises (basically just starting with a template) or write a free-form entry. It actually makes the app much more compelling because when I open it the only thing to do is write down my thoughts, so I only open it for that reason and never feel like it’s secretly trying to increase my app time or get my money. I can just write and feel good about it, which is what journaling is supposed to be anyway.
