  • Redesign makes it harder to use

    By Bsw71
    The old version of this app was much easier to navigate. Now, if I want to look up entries by date, it takes more steps & is more cumbersome. I work for a software company & know firsthand the benefits of real-world usability vs. "being pretty."
  • Search feature

    By mthso
    Hello, Could someone please make it possible that when I look up things in my journal I can find it. For instances I’ll search wedding and it’ll say I have zero wedding words in my journal. This is frustrating when I’m trying to find something. Especially when I know I have used that word. Thank you I really enjoy this app and have used it for many years now. But lately the search feature isn’t working and it’s frustrating. Please fix it!
  • Can’t Publish or Free write

    By bdavis22
    Please support handwriting or just sync with notability. Our team can’t keep subscribing unless you support automatic sharing. Preferably, we would like to publish to AirTable.
  • Nice app. I am missing these features

    By Av7890
    Ability to add files. When inserting a link, a description of the link is not inserted as in WhatsApp or Telegram.
  • Love it, but ....

    By JMo0412
    I love the journaling capability and the ability to sync social media and add photos as well as voice memos. Please consider adding Apple Pen capabilities. I sometimes feel that actually writing can be more personal when journaling. Including this into the functionality this would be a wonderful add!
  • won’t even start!

    By Bunny Rox
    this app truly is day one, because thats exactly how long i’m keeping it for. would love to try it out, esp after reading the reviews, but every time i click on the app it CRASHES immediately! ugh!!!
  • Finally, I think I will journal as I have always wanted to do but failed!

    By WA Gran
    I have always wanted to journal and started several times but never continued. I love the convenience of having my journal with me all the time and that I can add pictures to build the story. I plan to do the publishing so I still have a more traditional journal. I hope this app will help people reflect as we should and not as a billboard of feelings on Facebook!
  • Question about the design

    By Weeziejean
    I love this app so much. I love adding photos from the day to spark memories. I do have a question though. What happens to my existing journal if I no longer subscribe to this app? I’m paying for premium which I don’t mind but was just wondering.
  • deleted

    By Fr1endz4evr
    I deleted this one. My criteria was finding something better than onenote for daily journal keeping. onenote search on iphone is crippled so it passed at first. then I found only the premium version is cloud equipped. so I reverted back to onenote (which is hoted on onedrive in a distinct file)
  • Outstanding app

    By servnhim
    This is an awesome app and the premium is priced right. I love the fact that you can get your journals printed. This is great for family and for reflection. They need to add different papers for handwriting and more functionality with the Apple Pencil. Other than that, I highly recommend this app.
