This app used to be amazing

I used this app a couple of years ago and I loved how beautiful and simple it was. I had to delete it due to space on my phone a while back. I recently got a new phone with more memory and I really looked forward to using this app again. All the personal customization features are gone. Half the time I can't get it to save what I've put in. If I put one or two things in and wanted to add something else to it later, it was next to impossible to get the option to edit (it ALWAYS popped up a NEW page). Please bring it back to the way it was. It was not only more fun with the personal customizations, but it actually worked. I've deleted the app, but I will be checking back to see if updates fix the issues and I may download it again if I see that's the case.

Used for past year

I used to love this app. I loved all of the personalization/customization it had. The iPad version had themes - cheesy, but at least not generic! The iPhone version was adorable. I could make coffee cup bullet points, or stars, I could switch fonts, etc. etc. I could make my journal look exactly how I felt that day.

It was fun and I looked forward to it - I have been keeping a 3 things (+) I am grateful for that day for several years off and on. It can be a chore. Having a little fun with it made it better. I do not want a sleek, minimalistic gratitude journal - I don't need Puritanism in my gratitude practice! I want fun! Please bring back some of the customization options.

------Old Review-------

I like this app a lot, I've used it for a year. I've lost one entry, but otherwise it has been stable for me. But I would love to see:
1) iCloud syncing, and
2) more themes on the ipad version- or, the bullet point choices we have on the iphone version. I am a bit tired of the themes :-/

Thank you for a great app!


I love this app for its simplicity. However, I find it inconsistent. At times, I open the app (which takes for ever!) and find my previous journal entries, can browse through them using the calendar option. At others, and more often lately, it opens to a blank page - the history is not accessible. That defies the purpose of building an habit and learning from it. Four stars for what it's supposed to do and sometimes does. Two stars for its current frustrating behavior. Hoping this will be fixed very soon.
