A simple, flexible and private diary.
Keeping a journal helps in many ways. You can be more aware of your feelings and thoughts, keep track of your mood, dreams or experiences. Many influencing people love keeping a diary since it helps in so many ways!
-- “People who keep journals have life twice.” -- Jessamyn West
We've made this app as simple to use as possible. Everything is easy to discover and we'll guide you through the most advanced features. Our users love a simple and polished experience and that's what we give them.
-- “In the journal I am at ease.” -- Anais Nin
We give you all the flexibility you need. We won't tie you to any strict structure or force you to track anything you don't care about. You can add entries to the diary, like a mindfulness session or an area to list reasons for gratitude. You may even configure the diary as a travel journal or a dreams journal! That's easy to setup too: the only limit is your imagination.
-- “I can shake off everything as I write; my sorrows disappear, my courage is reborn.” -- Anne Frank
Your diary should be as private as you want. We do not upload your data anywhere, we don't track you and we value your privacy. And you get even more: we included a system to lock the app, so that no intruder can see your diary without your consent. Your diary is yours, private and secure.
-- “Whether you’re keeping a journal or writing as a meditation, it’s the same thing. What’s important is you’re having a relationship with your mind.” -- Natalie Goldberg
You are using an advanced device, so we're providing advanced and easy to use features. Like a cute mood tracking system. Or a way to import pictures in your journal. But also a calendar to navigate your memories... You can feel at ease, with a simple and familiar diary in your hands but also feel the power of the new tech you are using. We hope you will enjoy the balance.
-- “I don’t journal to ‘be productive.’ I don’t do it to find great ideas or to put down prose I can later publish. The pages aren’t intended for anyone but me. It’s the most cost-effective therapy I’ve ever found.” -- Tim Ferriss
Download and try it, you will not regret it!

BEST Journal/Mood/Diary app all in one I’ve found.
It asked me pretty quick what I think, I don’t normally like to rate so quickly, but this is a really great app. Honestly, this is THE BEST journal/mood/diary app I’ve downloaded. And I’ve gone through several and even wasted a couple bucks. Wish I’d have found this one first. I’ll be using it everyday or as much as I can!
What is has:
It’s simple but does everything I need it and want it too, including having a calendar, mood input, journal entry spot and a place to put pictures. It even asks you what your grateful for to help you boost your mood and remember that there are positive things even if only very small. You can even add additional questions or remove all questions if you’d like. It’s got a passcode lock with a recent upgrade which is great and works with my iPhones face unlock feature.
What could be upgraded:
I would also like to see an option to change the start day of the week on the calendar. A little decoration wouldn’t hurt, such as changing background color or something cute and quirky like that. A way to backup would be great to put the entries onto my computer, even better if I could email as a file to save on a computer.
Doesn’t seem to have ads, so 5 stars for now. Which I’ll leave as long as I don’t see an ad. If there is an ad at some point as long as there is a way to pay one time to get rid of them I’ll still leave the 5 stars. I always hate monthly fees for apps.
Developer Response ,
Thank you so much for your amazing review! It’s really rewarding to see that users enjoy our work, thank you a lot.
We plan to add a lock to the diary in the next version, it will take a few weeks to hit the App Store since we’re working on a very innovative new app right now, so stay tuned! Cheers
Good but I have some suggestions
This is a great app don’t get me wrong I love it and use it like every day. But here is the thing, I am struggling to figure out how to back it up and I am super worried that I am going to break my phone and all my diary from the last year will be gone. So I have a couple of suggestions,
1. Have a feature where you can email the journal to yourself, that way if the app crashes or your phone breaks, your diary is still safe on your email.
2. Share your dairy entries with other people.
3 please fix this bug where I can’t back the diary up.
4 maybe have a new quote on the screen when you open it up, that one is getting rather annoying.
5 have a spot where you can add voice recordings.
Thanks for reading my review and have a great day!!
A big thank you to the developers, keep up the good work!!!
Developer Response ,
Hey, thanks a lot for the review! I’m really glad you like the app 😄
The app is already backed up automatically on iCloud. You only need to check that automatic backups are turned on in your iPhone settings. If you ever break or lose your phone, you can restore everything on a new one, including your diary entries.
Anyway, I’ll add an export feature soon that will allow you to export the diary manually in a few formats (including a printable one!). This way there’s no chance to lose it. This will also allow you to share your whole diary with other people.
I’ll make sure to add a way to share a single entry too, thanks for the suggestion!
Regarding the voice recordings, that’s a great idea and I’ll definitely consider it.
Again, thanks a lot for the kind words. Have a great 2020,
Format & Search
There is no search choice. If I want to look back on a story by using keywords and/or phrases to find a particular item or story, there is no way to do so. That’s kind of the point of having an electronic diary: to be able to recall an event, story, joke, etc. whenever you want.
Also, I just want to see a list of the dates, with partial entries listed from top to bottom of screen. That format makes a whole lot of sense. The diary I’ve been using since 2013 is no longer in the App Store, but I sure wish it was!!! It’s perfect. No ads and it was free. I bought the 11 pro iPhone in November 2019, upgrading from the 6s plus from 2015 and I can’t get it on my new phone. I’m super bummed. I have to carry both phones with me.
