This is it! 🥳 I’ve found it!

This is journaling app is the one!! I have been diagnosed with adult ADHD (the extreme side) about 3 years ago, and as one can imagine, I’ve had ADHD all my life ever since I can remember. With that being said, I’ve been journaling as well all my life... and am trying to inter grade my digital world into my writings, I’ve literally tried about 10-12 different journaling apps, (paid money for half of them) and they where not exactly what I was looking for, let alone the amount of customization one has with font styles, color texts, and paragraph set up etc. and with a yearly (as well as monthly-yearly is considerably cheaper) subscription of $15- I’m hook~line~& sinker. And that doesn’t mention the fact that you also get writing prompts on areas of self reflection with an added “AI”. I could on and on about this one and I’d like make a suggestion if I can: adding some background images or colors to the pages of ones journal entries (maybe as a premium benefit) and some stickers (maybe limited for free and everything available for premium) I just think with more customization on the pages would really help make it ones with real paper and stickers.....
highly recommend this app for any person who has tried them all!!! Which was me until now!!!

Happy convert from Day One

I’ve journaled almost all my life and have used many forms of journaling: art journals, bullet journaling, online journals (remember Livejournal?) name it. I found Day One several years ago and it has been my preferred method of journaling for at least five years. However, Day One upgraded and suddenly their apps stopped syncing, now you need to buy the app (again, in my case), and for what? Minimal features? Enter LifeCraft. Everything Day One is and $10 cheaper with an added layer of providing emotion tracking and an intelligent assistant. I think it’s innovative. LifeCraft has definitely tried to innovate in a genre that is saturated and still manages to provide something new. I appreciate that. I also appreciate that there is an easy import option for me to get my entries from Day One. The interface is straightforward, the intelligent assistant unobtrusive, and the emotion tracking is well done. It looks as elegant, if not more so than Day One. Their Mac App looks great. It synced rather seamlessly with my MacBook, iPad Pro, and iPhone 8. All of that is a recipe for success. Good job, LifeCraft!

I like it!

I do like this apt. However the advertising is a little deceitful you can not change fonts while typing which the little movie about the apt clearly showed you could. You can set up a personal font size and color for the over all apt and maybe for the other journals you have. However this is one of the features that drew me to this particular apt. I had to take a star away for that. The next issue I have was not clear in the advertisement so I won’t take a star but I will mention it. It lead me to believe that once I updated I would be able to have more than one emotion per entry. That is not the case. I certainly have many feelings going threw me at once about many subjects at various points of the day. I rarely have just one feeling at a time. I don’t know about other people but I want that function. If these things are fixed then I would be very happy to give a full 5 stars.
I look forward to what other new items you come up with. Stickers are an idea especially for food. With lots of American foods. I don’t eat Sushi ever but I love egg salad regular salad even the habbatchi grill. Wonton soup, ice cream and much much more. Just a thought.
This is such a great app and so much can be added to it. I certainly hope you all keep working with it and upgrading it and more.

Developer Response ,

Thank you for your thoughtful review! I just wanted to clarify how you can change fonts while typing. When you’re editing a journal entry, you’ll see a plus button above the onscreen keyboard. Tap that button to see the text style toolbar. You can change the font, size, color, style (bold, italic, etc.). You can also add bulleted/numbered lists and checkboxes.

Regarding emotions, Lifecraft now has an Emotion log where you can record multiple emotions throughout the day along with notes so you can remember why you’re feeling that way. At the end of the day, you can copy your emotion log to your journal entry.

Thanks for the feedback!
