Lifecraft is the first digital life coach. Lifecraft's exclusive system creates a “virtuous cycle” that will dramatically improve your mental and emotional wellbeing over time:

Lifecraft sends you messages every day that inspire, motivate and teach.

Challenges are a great way to jump start your growth. Choose one of the included challenges or create your own.

Improve your emotional intelligence by capturing your emotions as they happen.

Journaling is one of the most effective mindfulness tools of all time. Daily reflection will help you take charge of your life and live more deliberately.

Lifecraft Premium uses iCloud to sync, which is both secure and reliable. Your Compass messages, challenges, emotion log, and journal entries are automatically synced to all of your iPhones, iPads and Macs.

Your information is always encrypted whether it’s stored on your device, in the cloud, or on its way to the cloud. No-one (including us) can access your information.

Lifecraft doesn’t use special text editing modes or obscure formatting codes. Instead, you get familiar font tools, even on iPhone/iPad. Journal at night using the “easy on the eyes” dark theme or the vintage “Hemingway” theme.

Create as many journals as you like, including sub-journals. Attach any number of photos and videos to your journal entries. (Free version allows one journal and one photo/video per entry).

See the hourly weather forecast for 48 hours or daily forecasts for the next week. Weather is automatically recorded for all of your journal entries.

Great but could improve

I caved in and got the 30 day free trial so I can have full access to the premium journal. I love it. The prompts are great because sometimes I don't know what to reflect on or write. I do wish that it would give actual writing prompts (like story ideas, etc) because I'm a writer and have a bad case of writers block. Another thing I wish this app had was the ability to resize images. Along with images, some of the pictures I added got discolored when I opened the journal/entry the following day. Disappointed in that but hoping there's a cool new update coming up that will adress these issues!

I was hoping for a Day One replacement but…..

I had high hopes for this upon initial install. It had everything I wanted for a reasonable price (compared to Day One) and video support. Unfortunately all it took was a few minutes of tinkering to dash those hopes. For starters, how is there no context menu or track pad slide support for anything on the MacOS version? The only option to delete an entry is to drag and drop into the trash. Okay, it took me a minute to figure that out but I’ll let it slide. Then, after importing Journals from Day One, I realized I no longer needed some of them. I proceeded to delete those as well. But wait, no drag and drop (the method mentioned above) No context menu? That’s right, you have to highlight the journal and hit delete. Where’s the consistency? I was willing to forgive these minor gripes cause I assumed this was a new app. Nope! It’s been around for almost a year. I mean this is UX 101.

Love this app!

Lifecraft makes me want to write every day. Even if I skip sometimes, I remember after a few days and come back to it because I look forward to interacting with it. The interface is just right, not extremely simple, but not overly complicated. The colors are so much fun! AND the developers will listen to your feedback. I’ve interacted with them when it first came out and they’re very open and eager to improve. If you have any new ideas, feel free to contact them. They’re extremely helpful with any issues you may be having as well. I don’t usually compare products openly, but I’m going to say it. I like Lifecraft better than DayOne! 6/5 stars.
