A great journal app

I have been using this app for about a week now. I really like it. It has an intuitive interface and is quite simple to learn and use. I just write away with no distractions. I have not played with the “markdown” to change formatting. No need to do so. I just wanted to write my journal entries, keep them organized, and easily review them at a later time.

At first I thought a word counter would be nice… But in truth I really do not the distraction. However, it might be nice to have an option to “export” some of my entries to html or pdf. However, really not that big of a deal.

A great simple application! Lets me stay focused on writing. Thank You!!!

Waste of Time- Not Working

You get a start page, then it becomes unresponsive. Doesn’t sync with the iPhone either. Desktop only. Very disappointed.
