- Bug fix: Sync issue with Thai characters
Ratings and Reviews
Elegant and effective. Best sales model.
There are quite a few journaling apps out there… Many of them are quite nice however journey is one of the few if not the only that sells you a functional product out right. I am eaten alive by subscriptions today. I subscribe to office 365… At least five video streaming services… QuickBooks… Adobe cloud… Apple cloud storage… Apple Music streaming… everyone thinks they can get a little piece of your money. I am moving away from anything that requires subscriptions. Thankfully journey had the foresight to see this getting out of hand. Unfortunately since operating systems are regularly updated and the only profitable app developers can afford to keep their products compatible it is likely we will see useful applications come and go. It is no longer about building an amazing application, it is also about building a standard that allows data and ideas to migrate. The fact that I was able to extract all of my data from one journaling application and import it into this and that I can export it from this and then to something else in the future if need be says a great deal about the development of these kinds of standards. Anyhow this is a great app I use it very often. Well it doesn’t particularly stand out from other comparable products, the business model is superior and journey has my loyalty as long as they put customers first. Death to subscriptions!

Hi! Thank you for the awesome review. We are glad that you like Journey. :)
I regularly start new journals (paper and online) but seldom stick with them for long. I am happy with Journey because it was so easy to develop a journaling habit and I've been using it consistently for several months. It feels convenient to use; when I think of something to write, I don't lose track of what I was going to say while navigating the app. Also, I can capture my thoughts with a variety of methods; audio, video, photos, and typing. Whatever suits my thoughts for the day.
Journey can be used and synced on several different devices. I upgraded for my windows based laptop (one time payment and done forever, yay!) but I did not upgrade on my iPhone. Each type of device needs its own upgrade to access full features and to turn off prompts to buy premium. I don't mind this business model, it is easy to close the prompts quickly with a tap as you enter the app, and much better than the annoying flashing banner ads and noisy pop-ups that some other apps use.

Thank you so much for the review
I love this app
A lot can be said for a journal app that is secured with my biometrics, tracks things such as temperature and tags, and has a review panel to look back on the past in a way that feels welcoming to reflect on your life. I like being able to attach my moods to entries and being shown trends on how tags have made me feel.
I am rating 4 stars for the fact of as much as I like about the app, there are some features I would desperately like to see added in future updates. Another reviewer mentioned wanting the option to have separate notebooks, and they liked the pay once plan for the premium features, which is an amazing thing compared to other journal apps that charge per month. I agree with this reviewer in these features.
Another feature I would like to see is an option to use a ruled style paper with Apple Pencil support on the iPad. Sometimes I would rather have my journal be written in handwriting. It feels more personal to me writing with my own handwriting and reflecting on how my hand might have been shaky, or if I was writing quickly or paying attention to my words. I think the UI in this app is great, and even though other apps out there would give me this feature, I still prefer Journey and it’s existing features, even without the feature I would love to see brought into my journey.
