Works well for me

I’m not really a journaler. I have many apps that I’ve tried over the years, and while they are very robust, I’ve always been the weak link. I just don’t keep up with the journals.

This app narrows the focus to specific questions, and you can further reduce the scope in the settings to just morning or eve, and limit the questions at those times. I’m currently only answering the daily gratitude question (and only requiring myself to answer 1), and that’s really helped. I plan to add in more questions after I have some consistency and practice, but it’s been several weeks of daily entries, so we are headed the right direction. The interface is great and conducive to using the app-visually pleasing and simple. Works well for me.

Foot settle

Really good, a couple things could be better

This app is a brilliant idea. In the past I used to journal long form, but I just don’t have the bandwidth for that right now. I’m in therapy and have often thought that journaling would be helpful. I get an insight, and I just want to write it down without making a big deal of it. So having a shored entry journal that prompt you seemed perfect. There are a couple things I wish that were different. First, although I allowed notifications, the reminders are not working for me. Second, I wish there was one more section available that was just labeled “Notes” or something. I don’t mind having the prompts, but maybe I want to write something that isn’t relevant to those prompts. It would be so easy just to add a freeform section.


Perfect; well almost!

The app is incredible and very easy to use. I needed something like this to get me to journal without feeling like it's a chore. And who likes to carry around a journal and try to keep it private? With this app its always with me and I can set a password to open it. I can take a pic which is incorporated into my journal entry and then prompts steer me to completion in less than 5 mins. The almost perfect...At this time I don't think the journal will switch/flip to landscape view when you turn your IPAD---so when I use my bluetooth keyboard which mounts my IPAD in landscape---the app will open but remain in a locked position which forces me to remove my IPAD and turn it so the home button is at the bottom.
