Ok as long as expectations are reasonable

I am happy with the application. It looks like it will help me build a journal for school quickly and easily. I wish there was a verison for the IPad. By just having the app for the computer, I have to wait until I get home or until I am in the office to update the journal. In this day and age, you have to have a version for the mobile devices too.

Exactly what I was looking for.

This application proved to be a quick download (as well as free—that’s always a perk). The apllication in the dock icon is easy to recognize, and access, although if it isn’t saved, one must go through a Finder search to relocate it. It’s ridiculously easy to save thoughts (I personally save quotes), and the email thoughtBACKs are spaced well apart and at random. Editing or deleting thoughts is a little trickier to figure out, but easy to use as well after logging in. Overall, the application is exactly as advertised. It is a great way to store (and occasionally be reminded of) certain ideas and thoughts. 5/5 for function and streamlined use.

Won’t let me login so useless.

I was eager to try this and still would be excited about it but after creating my account, the website would not allow me to login. I tried creating my account through the website instead and it claimed that the email address had been taken. Yet, it would not accept my password that I had created. I wish I could have used it but this made it frustrating and I deleted the app.
