Don't forget your password!

I loved this app… until I forgot my password! Given the amount of private information I chose a different password than my usual choices so after not writing for about a month I forgot what it was and there is no way of retrieving or resetting it! I have lost everything that I put in there and have wasted the $6 I paid for the app. A "Forgot Password?" feature would be really fantastic.

clean, simple and trouble-free

I love this app.
I was looking for a simple to use journal app that I could use to just write on the run.
I can close my computer any time, and open up again to where I left off.
The app autodates my work, is simple to use and easy to find old entries.
The desktop is fresh and clutter free, like opening a new page in an old diary.
thanks for creating it!

Works well like its description, but it lacks some character

This app is good for it's purpose - as a diary! It locks automatically when you go to a different window for a while, and you can tag stuff! I thought that was pretty cool. Get this if you aren't a person who keeps a paper journal super well - I can never find the time to update a handwritten journal, but with the app on my Macbook, I can just add stuff whenever I want!

I just wish that it had a few more features, espcially for the $6 I paid for it! There's no text formatting, not even basic bolding and italicizing. A word count would be nice (and having the option to order the diary entries by length would be awesome!). Even just some different themes to the app would be awesome. Right now it's just a black and grey diary - a bit drab. I wish I could at least customize the colour scheme a bit.

I give this app 4 stars - don't get me wrong, it does everything it advertises. It's efficient and clean-looking. It's just kinda boring.
