What's New in Version 3.2
Passcode retrieval feature
I have had this app for 2 years, today I deleted it
The new update came with some good things. The white background and the ability to choose text was nice, that the journal would stay on the page even after tabbing out was an immense upgrade. However, another feature has rendered it useless. Let me explain: I downloaded this app when Penzu forgot my password and made my previous writings unreachable. I use these apps to write snips or ideas for my novel when I am in transit or not at a computer and an idea comes to me. I prefer an app that has a passcode for this reason, in case my phone is misplaced or lost.
The new update makes it impossible to hold down and edit text. The app now "swipes" and "turns the page" if I try to edit a word that is on the left or right of the screen, and not in the middle. It is infuriating, and had made the app a huge hassle and, if I'm being honest, useless. Sad to see it go, as I have pages and pages of writing in it. I will be copying and pasting them to a new app, as this app is completely useless with this added feature. There is no setting to turn this page swipe off. Not all of us have an iPhone 6 Plus, I'm not sure if that would matter. It seems almost anywhere I try to press to edit (as opposed to back spacing my entire writing and rewriting it) causes this page turning effect to trigger.
Immensely annoying. I do not know how I can make my fingers any smaller so as not to trigger this effect.
Liked a lot, NOW not so hot
The review after this review is concerning an earlier version, when the app was good. Now this app is unusable. Twice in the past week I've written a great deal and had it deleted upon closing the app and reopening. What is that?! I use my journal as a therapeutic tool and often refer back to gauge my progress. Sadly, Private Journal is now completely useless. If you have important entries concerning life events that you'd like to save for future reference, THIS ISNT IT!!!
A simple and useful app for expressing your private thoughts. I appreciate that it is free but still have 1 minor complaint and 1 suggestion. Complaint: a single page for each day is, at times, too limiting. Suggestion: It would be most helpful if upon inserting a picture, the words would displace so as not to be hidden by the pic.
As it is, I either have to manually make a space by hitting return mid-way through the sentences, write less so the pic fits at the bottom or leave the picture layered upon the words and move it when I'm re-reading my entries.
Regardless, thanks for a useful and free app
P.S. Also when pics are imported, they are sometimes upside down or sideways requiring you to exit the journal, edit the pic, re-enter the journal and import again. Even having done that, the pic may still be askew and you have to repeat the process.
Needs major improvement
Overall the app is good for writing but there's some details that could use improvement. The touch and swipe to go to the next page is very undesirable, it's so sensitive that it doesn't allow me to look at the pictures I save with my entries, also if I'm writing and the page switches, everything I wrote is lost. So I constantly have to save. Picking a date with the calendar can definitely be fixed too. If I pick an entry from last year and I want to read more, I open the calendar and it sets me back to the current month.
