Easy, convenient, so glad I have this journal!

I love using Inkwell! It is easy for me to put in pictures or videos and to put in my thoughts or experiences. I can write a little if I only have a short time, like adding a picture and putting a caption with it. Inkwell makes it so easy to keep memories. I like that you can go to the calendar to add a journal entry for a past date, or you can click on a picture from your gallery and put in a few words or the whole story. I can put in simple things, like a picture of the flowers on a hike or something funny one of my daughters said, or I can make a long post and record all my thoughts about something I was going through. Inkwell is simple, convenient, and I love having these thoughts and memories!

This app means so much to my life

If you are not keeping a multimedia journal, you should start today. I use Inkwell everyday to write the things that happen in my life and in my family. I take pictures of grandchildren, all the places I visit, the food I eat, and anything else I want to remember. I record recitals and games. It is amazing to look back on everything I’ve done and see how colorful (literally) my life is. Of course I could keep all the photos and videos on my iPhone using many other apps, but I love weaving them with the story that goes along with the picture. The app is very reliable which is important for such valuable stuff. I could not be happier with this app.

Wish I’d found sooner

I’m still relatively new to Inkwell but so far I have nothing but ravingly positive feedback to offer about it. I looked at (and downloaded) a couple other journal apps and Inkwell, IMO, is more intuitive to use. Easy to use the features built in features - my faves being audio journaling, being able to have multiple journals, and the ease with which I can pull in social media memes/inspirational content. I have a toddler, a full time job, and a set of personal circumstances that means privacy and time are hard to come by. Inkwell makes it easy. A *great* value- worth the money. Thank you!
