Doesn't send notifications

I like it, but I must be doing something wrong - it does not send notifications Daily.

Basic gratitude journal

I was looking for a way to record things I was grateful for. What went well each day. This app does that, and it was free, so I can't complain. But you can only make an entry for the current day. It would be nice if you could go back and create an entry for yesterday, for example. If I forgot to journal yesterday, I would like the ability to add an entry later.

Thankful for what this app does and hopeful that more sensible features are added

Update: still no cloud, and cannot go back to previous days.

This app allows users to keep a mini gratitude journal. However, the app lacks the ability to change or select days. So, users may only list items or experiences for the current day. Also, this app is not clouable, so users cannot share data across devices. If this app would allow users to select the date and also share data across devices, then I would be grateful for the improvements. For now, though, this does not satisfy my needs. I am looking for a gratitude app with just a few more features. At the very least, the app I select has to allow users to select the date. I do enjoy the reminders though.
