Watch Grid Diary in action:

Did you ever try to keep a diary but never succeeded? Or did you have writer's block problem? Grid Diary is here for you.

Grid Diary is introducing a unique way of writing a diary. In Grid Diary, diary entry is made up of a number of "Grids", which is as simple as a question, prompt, or etc. It is like a pre-defined template for the diary. Thinking and writing in this way is more effective, and it feels more natural and fluid. You still have total freedom in the amount of the grid and the text you want to fill in a grid.

We started with a simple and clear purpose, and have always kept minimal design in mind. Through carefully crafted gestures, Grid Diary enhanced user experience in many ways.

A new and easy way to keep a diary.

A New Way of Journaling

Usually when I download a “diary” or “journal” app I often get conflicted on what to write. Sometimes I have days where I don’t do much at all and the page often looks almost blank. Most days I have no idea what I’d write anyways! It can be so difficult.
But with this app, writing down simple responses is the perfect way to reflect on your day (especially when you love answering questions).
It gives you a nice range of example questions with different topics and of course you can write your own custom questions as well; that’s a nice add-on!
Even though I haven’t gotten the Pro version of this app it’s still very useful and doesn’t flood your app time with meaningless adds. There’s the occasional pop up asking if you’d like to update to Grid Diary Pro though which I can’t complain too much about.
Overall, this is my favorite journal app and I think I wouldn’t use any other one. It’s simple and to the point. Nothings cluttering the screen, it’s very organized and has a nice aesthetic and minimalist feel. Love it! ,

I'm daily journaling! I'm more aware and grateful.

Thanks to this easy to use journaling tool, I am able to keep up with daily journal entries again.
I used to keep a daily hard bound journal for many years, but as interruptions increased, I was missing days and weeks at a time. I'm so glad I am back to daily journaling with the help of this app.
I mostly use it on my iPad, but since it is synced with my iPhone I can journal while I'm waiting for my food at a restaurant like I did yesterday.
An unexpected benefit has been that I find myself being more aware of the important things in life, like making time with family and friends. This is a bigger priority since I'm aware I will be recording it.
I've added a questions like, "Where did I see the hand of God in my life today?" This has helped me spiritually and increased my awareness and gratitude.
I've also added "Things I'm praying for" and "Prayers answered." It's really added value to my life in unexpected ways.
I've added, "Current events" to include what I'm aware of happening in my community and the world and my opinion of it.
I'm emailing my entries to myself and still printing a hard copy because that gives me some security just in case the electronic copy is lost.
I paid for the full version because it's well worth being able to add as many photos as I like. Plus the cost is minimal compared what I used to pay for my hard bound journals.
I highly recommend this!
