A Journal for Every Day


I have repeatedly tried to keep a brief journal of positive affirmations of my day - both on paper and on my phone. I always have great intentions that seem to pass away after a few weeks. However, this app has solved that issue for me. It asks me a few specific questions every day that have really made me think about what is positive in my life, with the goal of continual improvement. Some days I write a lot, some days not so much, but I have stayed with it. After all, my phone is always with me and the app is easy to use. I've also started keeping the daily photo, which is a great feature.

Great phone app


I tried keeping journals for years. Sometimes I journal but then I stop. Usually I would journal to vent about what was going wrong. I love this new journal. I saw the nice bound one and I love nice paper and pens but I wondered if they had a phone app. Sure enough they do. It is easy fill in the blank and I get reminders day and night to fill it in. I think becuz I have my phone w me and becuz you literally can just fill in a few blanks, I have been able to continue. And hopefully as research says, writing about my gratitude twice daily will make for happier daily living.

suggestions & what I love


What I love about this app:
- it focuses on the positive things in life
- makes it extremely easy to write entries
- doesn't make you feel obligated to write essays
- ability to add a daily photo
- the only journal type app that allows you to export all entries
- when you export, it doesn't show the boxes that you didn't write anything for

- ability to add more than 1 photo to an entry
- allow you to customize the title for the morning and evening, rather than only being able to select from 2-3 options
- other than the 2 sections (morning/evening), I wish there was just a section like "overall day" or something, so you can essentially write a journal entry of you wanted
- I love the bullet points, but I wish it only had one (or allowed you to specify rather than 3). I also don't think that it should be limited to 3

Thanks for this super easy to navigate app, love it!
