Talk about some serious journaling experience! Introduced for the Mac in 2005 and the iPhone in 2010, MacJournal for iPad offers an even greater opportunity to document important life events while on the go. It's no wonder MacJournal is the world's most popular journaling app for the Mac.

-Create entries in multiple journals

I have had a lot of trouble with this app

I would not recommend this app. I had created about one month's worth of journal entries when suddenly the password wizard froze and I could no longer gain entry to the app. I was able to restore my journal entries only by opening the backed up database through iTunes file sharing.

I deleted the app and then reloaded it, just for experimental purposes, but without using a password and without making entries of any significance. The app froze once again, and I kind of gave up on it at that point. About one month later I reinstalled the app just to see what might happen, created a journal, but could not even make an entry: the entry wizard just gave out as I was trying to make a choice.

It is too bad about this, because MacJournal for Mac is a great app, and having these companion apps was a big help.

Unfortunately This App is Not Worth the Price

I purchased the Journal for Mac App and it is a great program. I did purchase this so I could sync with my iPad. This doesn't work - the developer tried to give me help on how to make the sync possible but to no avail I try each day to see if, perhaps I can get this thing to sync with my Mac but, alas, no luck. I keep getting the message "It seems the connection is taking longer than usual and you might want to disable any firewalls." I disable the fire wall and get the same message. Well, I'm stuck with this thing on my iPad but you don't have to be. Just check reviews and if this problem is solved, then fine, go ahead and spend the money otherwise, stick with Day One on you iPad or iPhone.


I read all the bad reviews before I bought the app. After using it for a day I have to say that I love it. It synced all my journals from my Mac with my iPad in seconds over my wifi network. It kills me how quick people write destructive reviews when something doesn't work the way they think it should. I can do everything I want with this app. Don't forget that an iOS version can never be as feature-reach as the OS version. Bottom line, I am happy with this app. 2 bugs well spent!
