Good, but needs an update badly!


It's a great journal app, but it's obvious the developer hasn't updated it in quite some time. Dropbox sync no longer works because Dropbox changed something a while ago, & the app hasn't been updated to adapt. The screen doesn't stretch for the taller iPhone 5 screen, so I keep missing the spacebar because there's a black bar where it usually is. If the author could rebuild it with these obvious and trivial changes, it would be a 4-star app. 5 stars if it were universal & synced across devices. I hate paying twice for the same app (iPhone & iPad) but if they don't auto-sync then there's no point to having the iPad app anyway.

Good App


I have been using this app for more than two years. It is a good app and I use it daily to journal. I'll give it a five star if it has a Mac version that syncs through iCloud as some of the journaling apps do. When I want to write a lot, it's easier to just do it on a Mac. Without this feature, i may switch to another journaling app. For what the app says it does, it does very well.

Terrific journal program

Rachel RJ

I really like this program a lot. It's simple to use, so you can focus on what's important -- your writing. And I love the export to Google Docs feature. It works easily, and it's so nice to have a plain text backup instead of having a journal that's tied up in a specific program.
