JOT (Just Open & Type) - A new kind of journal
By Pedro Wunderlich
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
JOT (Just Open & Type) is a new kind of journal app designed to capture thoughts and ideas the moment they pop into your head. Like a physical journal, it opens ready for typing so you can start writing immediately without having to look for a "new entry" button. JOT locks up automatically when you leave or switch apps, so your thoughts always stay private.
I built JOT because I needed a way to capture spontaneous ideas and thoughts quickly. I don't want to deal with all the bells and whistles of other journal apps. I simply need a safe place to unload the contents of my head, whenever something of interest pops in. If you feel the same way, I think you'll enjoy JOT.

Best lite journaling app
I love Jot. It's so easy to get to typing and it auto generates entries by the date you contribute. The quick access form factor has lent itself to creating many short entries that have more value than longer form entries in my last journal because they come closer to the moment.
