Meet your new journal companion.
Jour is here to help you feel your best. The app offers both a private, portable journal as well as guided Journeys, which each offer a step-by-step approach to specific areas for growth, such as: feeling calmer, sleeping better, combatting anxiety, and improving mental health.
Journaling is a mindful practice, recommended by therapists, counselors, and health professionals. It's a great way to improve mental health, identify and manage sources of stress and anxiety, and become more present. It's also a self-care habit that's easy to adopt and can be done no matter your past experience with mindfulness or mediation.
Thousands of people are already using Jour to be more mindful, feel more gratitude, better their mental health, increase focus, or decrease stress. Inspired by some of the healthiest and most powerful therapy practices, the app provides an interactive approach to mindfulness while encouraging personal growth. Plus, with your in-app profile, you can see how much and how often you journal, tracking your own progress in real time.

Ratings and Reviews
I love this app ... however
I love this app, I can already tell it will be my new favorite thing. Providing proper structure for someone logging their life is extremely important and this app does just that, all while giving you the option to write freely. However, I soooo wish that this app supported writing on the iPad Pro with your Apple Pencil. I love journaling but one of my favorite things about it is the ability to see and remember the emotions attached to my own handwriting. I hope this is something they’d consider in a future update.p (sooner than later). I would love to —literally—be able to write in this journal. The only reason for 4 stars instead of 5.
Update: This is a probably a bug but this is app is lacking in additional security. I turned off the Face ID feature and the app does not ask for a passcode or key phrase to view my entries. Additionally, when I attempt to view my entry for the day in my daily reflection it does no allow me but instead takes me back to the introduction page.

Hi there - Thank you for your feedback! Your pencil idea is a great insight and something that our team is discussing for a future update to the app.
You can find all past entries in a Journey - such as Daily Reflection - by tapping into the Journey and then scrolling down in the Journey's home screen.
Lastly, we only require these two security measures when you're logging in to the app. You can always log out or, if you would like to lock the app while logged in, we offer the ability to implement Face or Touch ID. However, rest assured that all your entries are only readable on your device, while you're logged in. They are encrypted with your Key Phrase. Only you, when you enter your Key Phrase, decrypt and open the entries. No one else - not even our team - has access to see or reset your Key Phrase either.
If you need anything else or you want to share any additional feedback with us, feel free to reach out shaking your phone while logged in to the app or by clicking on the icon on the bottom right and then selecting Feedback & Support.
#1 Journal App !
As a writer myself, I used to love the idea of having a journal on my phone, especially as a teenager. So, like anyone who wants something, I searched. I’ve tried a plethora of different journaling apps that all either 1- require payment at some point or have a premium subscription which limits what you can do.. 2- do not have a real point to them. Nothing makes them very unique other than the layout.
But Jour has a purpose. You can write daily reflections to help you set goals and look back on them weeks later. The app also offers journaling ideas/tips as well as exercises for when you’re anxious and ideas on how to heal and grow.
Now, I spend a fair amount of money on aesthetically pleasing, durable physical journals that fit my personality for that period in my life, but Jour delivers aesthetic prompts that take ten minutes tops to be more present, and invest in yourself.
My Favorite Journaling App!
This app is amazing! Not only does it allow you regular journaling functions, but it offers Daily Reflection and things that can help get one’s life a little more stable. Overall, it’s a very nice app! However, I have one problem: whenever I wish to look back on a journal entry, I am unable to scroll because it will keep bringing the cursor to the last word of the entry. Not only does this make reading an entry practically impossible, but it also changes the date of completion for the entry. For example, if I wrote about what happened in my life on Monday and I try to read it on Wednesday, I’ll end up automatically being sent to the bottom and the entry will say it was finished Wednesday; it’s very confusing. Otherwise, it’s an excellent app! Hopefully that little inconvenience will be fixed in later updates; other than that, I definitely recommend this app!
