iJournaler has been built from the ground up for the iPad. Designed to not get in your way, every keystroke is saved. Both landscape and portrait mode are supported.
Open it up and you are immediately taken to today's entry. To view entries from previous days simply swipe as though you were turning pages. When working in landscape mode the page on your right is always today. This makes it easy to look back at older entries for inspiration.
If you want to change your password or remove it simply touch the icon at the top of the page and choose "Change Password".
To jump to entries from one week, one month, or one year ago. Simply touch the date to change the page's entry. Today's entry is still "sticky" and cannot be changed in landscape mode.
What's New in Version 1.5.2
Fixed an issue with exporting on iOS 4.2.1.
Will now lock the app if a password is set whenever leaving the app on iOS 4.2.1.
Fixed the date format.
We are currently working on the photo update. To check the progress and provide feedback please visit our facebook page at www.facebook.com/iJournaler
loving this app!
I used to journal as a teenager, but haven't done so in decades because now that I am married with kids, I never knew who would "find" my private thoughts and take offense to them. Now I feel secure that once I press the "home" key, no one else can access what I've written. I like the fact that I can change the font to reflect my mood, that there is no "page limit" on a specific day, and that I can flip through previous entries like a real book. I was originally looking for a free journal app, but I'm glad I spent the nominal amount of money for this one.
More than a little decent
I was pretty skeptical of the application when I first found it. Many reviews pointed out problems with the password and I was also bothered by the fact that it's .txt only with full backups each time instead of incremental.
However, after using it for several days, every day, I have to say I'm very happy. Finally, I have a way to journal again on a consistent basis (my iPad is always with me in my briefcase). I've even started carrying the bluetooth keyboard, which makes typing journal entries a dream. I wish I could find a word-processing application worth having now. (If only iPad had a FILESYSTEM, I wouldn't need a netbook anymore.)
The password feature works fine for me. If I quit, switch apps, or even just shut off the iPad while the app is still running, when I return, the single password field is blank and I have to enter my password to get in. (It wasn't like this the first two times I launched, so I'm not sure why it suddenly started working, but it does.)
The only thing I can think of that would make this better is if there were a Windows counterpart in which I could journal when I'm in the office, and have the two devices synchronize.
Thanks for a great application!
Well Implemented Idea
In addition to exercise and travel journals, I have kept a daily journal for decades. I even kept a journal in a combat zone, which might have been against the rules. I thought I might lose something if I switched over to an e-journal, as I did briefly in the 1980's. Things are a LOT different in the year 2012.
The iJournaler is very intuitive, and about as easy to use as they come. The automatic date is a useful bonus, as are the different fonts. My penmanship has always been atrocious, so the keyboard is just what the doctor ordered (pun intended). The spell check is no longer an option in 2012, and iJournaler has one. For an aging journaler, like myself, the automatic save is a real lifesaver (another intended pun).
As the iJournaler evolves, I hope there will be a larger and more inclusive set of font choices, and sizes. I would also prefer that pages have a definite length and size (perhaps even adjustable). We all like choices, and I would also like a large choice of page designs.
For the money, the iJournaler cannot be beat -- unless money is your single consideration. Considering the free upgrades and additions, this program will only get better with age.
