Customer Reviews

Sad about sync

As an old user I had at least two options for sync. I get very tired of developers getting greedy and ignoring the existing services that were created for this purpose just so that they can do a money grab. They originally charged for the app and I originally paid for it, and then they took away the options of syncing that were in the first version of the product. Now in the second version they have ripped all of you off by removing those options and being only on the paid version. Icloud was built for this purpose and I do not trust you guys with my content.

You don't get the right to own our content on your servers. You guys should be ashamed of yourself for the bait and switch.

Worth it

Yes, it's subscription. Yes it's more money than it was in the past. But - yes, developers who make the awesome stuff we use every day need to be rewarded for their creativity and hard work.

I'm a very frugal person. I hate wasting money. This is not a waste.

Journaling can have such a positive impact on my mind and body. The health benefits alone outweigh what I'd pay to my doctor or the drug companies.

Help support sustainable business models and don't nickel and dime app developers. They need to not only cover their hosting costs and other business expenses - they need to make a living.

Works great on iPad and iPod touch

I love how it syncs easily--right in there with the Apple ecosystem.
