Much better!

I was using the app called Bits for a few months and it went well until I realized the backup files couldn’t open, and just after that, Bits randomly deleted all of my entries. I spent hours every couple of days writing those. I was so mad. Tried several other journal apps with no avail, until I found this one. I’ve only written one entry, and I can tell it’s 100x better!! I love that it stays in the top bar of my screen, and I can toggle it off and on being on top of other windows. And it’s also so easy to backup entries on a flash drive, which is what I was looking for!! I’ll definitely be upgrading to the Pro version ASAP!

Use it everyday in college.

Love this app and I use it to keep track of what’s due in each of my classes throughout the week, as well as a to-do list for the week. I just wish you could select an option to keep a note at the top permanently, even while you have other notes favorited. I reccomend you give this a try if you’re always carrying your laptop with you to class. It’s quick to open, and easy to use.

So practical to have around.

Better than opening a text editor, especially since I tend to keep files open. Just click the “plus” to add a new note. And have a spearate pane available for often used, or quick, notes. Seems to be CPU efficient too.
