Meet your new journal companion.
Jour is here to help you feel your best, offering you both a place to jot down what's on your mind as well as guided Journeys, if you’d prefer an interactive, step-by-step approach to tackling a specific topic.
Journaling is a mindful practice that is commonly recommended by therapists, counselors, and life coaches. It's a great way to reflect on what's going on in your life, identify and manage sources of stress and anxiety, and become more present. It's a positive, self-care habit that can be done no matter your past experience with mindfulness or mediation.
With Jour, you can now bring your private journal with you and take time for yourself whenever you want; start a daily journal practice or open it only when you feel the need. Inspired by some of the most powerful therapy practices, the app provides an interactive approach to mindfulness while encouraging personal growth. Plus, with your in-app profile, you can track how much and how often you journal, tracking your own progress in real time. Jour has resources for you to feel calmer, sleep better, improve self-confidence, and become your best self.
With the Jour app you can:
- Write or reflect whenever you want
- Set reminders to return at specific times
- Start a daily journal habit or only write when you feel the need
- Create a record of what happened in your life and how you felt over time
- Address specific issues or areas for growth
- See your writing streaks and progress made, in real time
- Track the amount of words you've written and the Journeys you've completed
- Implement effective practices used by therapists, counselors, and top life coaches
- Take a step back to identify what causes you stress and feel gratitude for what brings you joy in life
- Take some mindful time for yourself whenever works best for you — before work, after you put the kids to bed, before meditating or after a yoga class
With the app's guided, expertly-approved Journeys, you can focus on:
- Sleeping better
- Remembering and recording dreams

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.
Great app!! I wish there was more to it though
I really like this journaling app because the prompts ask me to focus on things that remind me who I am as a person. I’m going through a self-discovery phase and this app is really helping me rediscover who I am.
Can we have a “my profile” page? It would be really nice to be able to have one page where all the entries are, instead of having them on multiple pages. It would also be nice to have an option to reorganize the app, or even just the personalized “my profile” page, in a way that suits each individual best.
It would be really cool to be able to have a “book mode” as well. To be able to design a cover and have a page for each day. It would also be extremely neat to be able to customize each page with different layouts, colors, fonts, etc. I LOVE the aesthetic and color themes of the app. Maybe have an option to add pictures at well!

Hi there - Thank you for your feedback and we apologize for any inconvenience. We're actually working on an update right now that will allow you to unify and access all entries from one page. We'll release it very soon! As for your suggestions regarding interface and photos - these are both great insights, thank you! We're already looking into potential photo inclusion in the future and will consider the mode you mention as well. If you want to share any other feedback, please feel free to reach out by shaking your phone while logged in to the app or by clicking on the icon on the bottom right corner and then selecting Feedback & Support. We're always happy to chat about how we can continue to improve Jour!
All the best!
