Best Journaling App Out There
I’ve tried many different journaling apps but this is truly the best one out there. It requires no recurring payment like most apps, it has a wonderful aesthetic that I haven't found anywhere else and all of the different categories really make it stand out.
6/19- adding onto my review! I really love the redesign. This is one of the few times a redesign has actually made an app even better. These are some improvements that I think can be made: I really love the Daily Jour feature and I wish that in addition to the one the app provides, we could also have a feature where the user inputs questions for themselves and then get them after the app’s Daily Jour in the same type of aesthetic with the colors and the questions but it would be custom. I’m a high school student and I wish they had a section specifically for school (and maybe even work) stress because I think it’s something that a lot of people struggle with and I really love the categories like “Unsent Letter” and “In my Dreams.”
Wonderful app with important things to improve
Wonderful app. I enjoy using it a lot because every day it gives you 3 questions to answer based on different topics, and it really allows you to reflect (which I love doing and need something to prompt me to do so regularly). I love the journeys section as well where you're prompted to make self-affirmations or where you can write about your dreams etc. I hope there will be more of those to come. Not to mention, the layout and colours are very aesthetically pleasing which amplifies the experience. So far, I've been using the app every day as it makes journaling fun and interesting.
As for things that urgently need improvement: 1) Please enable word wrap in the Future Me journey. When you open the entry to reread, long text disappears and I can't read my goals completely which is annoying. 2) Please enable scrolling for long entries in general. Since it's a journal there shouldn't be a limit to what you can write. I wrote a very long entry in the dream section but I can't reread it in its entirety because the app cuts my entry off. Please make a scroll bar!! 3) When reading old "journey" entries, maybe only make it go to the entry itself and not the bit with the introduction and the questions?
If those things get fixed I'll definitely bump the rating up a star or two!
edited 3 July: scrolling and word wrap has been enabled so I bumped my 3 stars to a 5! Thank you!
Developer Response ,
Thank you so much for your kind words and taking the time to report these issues! It really helps us make sure we're building the best tool possible for our community.
1) and 2) have been fixed recently!
3) Thank you for your suggestion. We'll discuss this with the rest of the team and see how we can improve consuming past entries.
We hope this helps!
All the best!
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.
