Slow and laggy as you type... and no PIN or fingerprint to protect your Journals.


If you would even both to test your own app, you'd know that as you begin typing into a new journal entry things seems to going all fine and dandy. As you maybe get 5 or 6 lines down in a single paragraphs, things just start grinding to a halt, super lag, and typing shows up late, and sometimes letters get input out of order, and then trying to select with your finger the correct place of the cursor is super laggy. I've found that as soon as you double-enter, and create a new separate paragraph, speed is then restored. What the heck is this?!?! It's so inconvenient and dumb!

Also, you have no way of securing the app. No fingerprint, no PIN. If i get up and walk away, there should be a timeout and a PIN or fingerprint lockout. And every time I open the app I should be greeted with this lock as well. My iPad is sometimes shared among individuals. I should be able to safely and comfortable hand my iPad over to someone, loan it to them, etc. and not worry about them opening my JRNL app and reading my Journal.

Account Activation E-mail Never Came....


Sooooo as much as I would love to leave a sparkling review for this app, I just can’t do it. Like, I literally cannot. Why? Well, it may be because I can’t even access my account. The activation email never arrived. I have only one email address that I would have used to signup for the service and I double checked all of my info before I hit the submit button.... so I’m pretty darn sure that it didn’t get sent somewhere else. I even tried resetting the password, but I haven’t gotten an email for that either! Any help would be appreciated!

No longer my favorite journal app..


I once had rated this app 5 stars. I was using this app for a little over 7 months, and I never really looked around at other journal apps. JRNL does what it’s supposed to, somewhat. The mobile and web version are both incredibly clunky and are not easy to use without something glitching up. I did enjoy JRNL for a while, and tried to work through it’s issues, but I eventually moved to Day One Journal. I hope that JRNL improves.
