Customer Reviews


I love journaling. I have many journals crowding my bookcase. I've used them over the years to capture prayers, thoughts, & scriptures. I also blog and I'm grateful for the memories I've been able to record through many different life events.

What makes this app different? It combines and captures the essence of both a blog AND journal in a concise clear format.

My journals and blog are full, but I fill them sporadically. This app is so simple it's easy to be consistent. In many ways this app is a more powerful tool to measure your life. It encourages you to be intentional. The hardest part for me is picking just ONE picture. 😊

Perfect Journaling App!

After using this app for about a month, I'm hooked! I've tried journaling in the past and have never made it past a week. Having the journal on my phone is so convenient. Also, the email tips have been really helpful to get more out of each day's Journaling. I have an evening reminder set and found that reflecting on the day is the perfect way to wrap up a day to celebrate the areas in which I accomplished my goals and to also bring to light areas I where I could make some improvements. I recommend it constantly to friends and family!

Quite good so far

I like all the features, I occasionally put in a photo. The annoying thing on the photo is the part that show is the bottom of the photo so typically you don't see people's heads, you can click on it and see the whole photo but I would rather just have an icon that doesn't take up room compared to someone's shoes.
I also totally get that we are supposed to be thinking positive thoughts, but a spot for opportunities or even if the "what could you have done"were worded differently?
All in all way more likely to use this than paper, is it making a mental health difference? The jury is still out.
