Ratings and Reviews
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!
Much Better Than Day One
I have been journaling electronically since before the first iPad arrived on the scence. My “goto" program for years was Day One (Classic Version). I loved the intuitive interface. When the update came out for the 2nd version of Day One, I was completely disappointed with the changes. I spent more time trying to figure out how to fix my program than I did writing. It was a constant source of frustration. I moved back to pen and paper. Then, I found this little gem on the app store one evening while I was browsing for a possible replacement program. It works. It works great. It’s reliable, intuitive, and made for journaling. I would happily throw money at the programmers to keep this baby in development. This is a diamond in the raw. I can see tons of possiblities with just a few additions to features. As it stands, it gets the job done in a pleasurable way. Try it.
*Note to development
Don’t make the same mistakes Day One made. Don’t overdevelop. Or develop too fast. Take your time to do it right.
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.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
