JournalBot is a journal that you text just like a friend. It’s journaling made easy and most importantly - a journal that you’ll actually use!

Here's how simple it is:
1. JournalBot texts you
Customize the timing of the text, how often it is sent, and what kinds of questions you want to be asked.

2. You text JournalBot
You interact with JournalBot through your messaging app. Texts, pictures, and emojis are all fair game.

The JournalBot app is packed with features.
- Home for your thoughts: your journal entries are private and displayed beautifully. Reminiscing through what you wrote months ago is a joy.
- Customizable reminders: choose what kind of questions you want JournalBot to ask you. It makes journaling as easy as talking to a friend.
- Automatic insights: see how your mood and what you journal about changes over time. It's like being able to read your own mind.

We created JournalBot because we believe in the power of journaling - for clarity of mind, remembering your life, and general mental health - but thought that the existing solutions today were too hard for most people. Common issues we heard include it being hard to develop a habit using yet another app or physical journal and it being difficult to know what to write about. JournalBot came out of the insight of "what if journaling was as easy as talking to a friend?". That's our ultimate vision for JournalBot - a friend that is always available to listen, asks you interesting questions, and always remembers what you've said.

We'd love for you to give JournalBot a try and let us know what you think! Send us an email at with any thoughts.

Since you interact with JournalBot using SMS, it is currently only available to users with a US phone number for now.

I use the app to help me track my mental health each day. I haven’t missed a day since I got the app. It helps that the app texts you because I always look at texts but when an app sends a notification I don’t always pay attention. I love this app!!

Finally journaling again!

I’m the worst at keeping a journal but wanted to start it up again. JournalBot makes it easy - all you do is send a text! Love the custom reminders too. Best way to remember more of your life

Love JournalBot!

Being able to set up multiple journals, add pictures and use voice texting makes this journal app easy to use. Really enjoy JournalBot! Try it!
