Best Windows 8 Apps
19 October 2015
I had a little trouble figuring out how to make the top tool bar appear, and how to delete the tutorial. I still haven't figured out how to replace the tabs that disappeared when I did that. I don't see an "add tab" option. I wish there were other colors for the text, too, but at least I have some options. Very nice app, considering it's free. So far, everything has stayed saved, and I haven't lost anything, and it's working well for what I'm using it for.

...BUT editing text (B, I, U, etc) is such a pain that I usually end up just turning it off and giving up. Also when moving the txt windows, it expands and contracts making it hard to line up txt! I end up spending way too much time on these issues, honestly I'd rather just write it.

I enjoyed this app in the beginning. Has great functionality and options but after using it for a few weeks adds started popping up on the page that sit right on top of the next page button. You have to sit and wait for the adds to disappear in order to move to a different page because there is no minimize or close button on the adds. Very annoying.......

This is a great journaling app. This is the best "diary" app I have found. (and I've gone through TONS of apps) Though you do have to buy other themes, you can protect it with a password! You can even add videos, music, and picture files! This app might also be good for scrapbooking! Overall a great app. 99% satisfied. <3

I use this app for my daughters, I have three and they all love putting new things in their Mommy and me books.... I will add more stars when you add more Color options for the text in the books

it is very uncomfortable to type on this app. Everywhere you touch it you get a text box that has to be resized.
And it is harder still to input a new chapter.
Also the instructions on how to use the app are not clear.

This sucks! How do you take the instructions? I hate it

Wanting to start a journal... looked and reviewed the options available on Win 8.1 and thought this app was it. Liked the look, the features, and the ability to have multiple journals. Well that ended quickly for me. Going through the tutorial I soon found out that I was missing some of the buttons, like no "add text" and why is it when I select my text and want to change the font is changes from page to page.

In my initial review of this App, I was not happy at all. That was 2 months ago and I've searched high and low for another App that would suite my needs. That's what it boiled down to for me... MY individual need. I've journaled for years, with pen and paper, and have a hard time moving forward with today's technology. However; the reality is, I have to adjust to what's new! So I simply wanted a Journal that could provide my daily writing, with page flip availability so I could keep that old school journal look and feel. While there are still things that this App is missing, it is definitely coming into place and I believe in it's potential and those behind the whole idea. The Technical assistance has made this possible! For whatever issues I've run into they've helped me find resolutions EVERY SINGLE TIME!! I believe with time, it can only get better, so I'm sticking with it ! Look forward to what's ahead!

i had that for two days now, and i saved my journal every time i typed a new entry, but just the app crashed, and i lost EVERYTHING that i had so far, sure this is a great app by it's being, or whatever they say, but that glitch is ABSURD!!!!!!!!, So i'll say it again, What in the world is wrong with this app?!?!?!? and i'll leave this message for the staff of this Project: FIX THAT GLITCH ASAP

I blogged in this app for two weeks....then, today, I opened it up with my password, wrote for a bit, closed the app, and now my entire journal simply disappeared. The app went back to the beginning with the instructional journal when I reopened it and my journal was gone!!! This app sucks!!!!

Overall I love this app, but there is still a lot that needs work.
1. Beautiful format! The backgrounds and themes blow everything else I looked at out of the water.
2. I find it very easy to add and manipulate objects on the page.
3. Love the bookmarks!
1. As others have mentioned, the text boxes are a nightmare for long text. It would be nice to be able to type several paragraphs and have the app format it into the various pages and have default settings so I don't have to format each text box..
2. Although there is an option to export image, it exported gibberish to my skydrive. I would like to see a realistic way to export.
3. It would be nice to be able to add video clips and url links.
4. Password protection!
5. More options for everything, fonts, themes, covers, etc.
6. I would be nice to insert pages or chapters.
7. When I view my saved journals, there is no way to tell them apart beyond opening each one.

I wish it was a bit easier to use. I wish I didn't have to use the boxes to type. Also a spell checker would be pretty cool. I downloaded a cover for the journal have no Idea where it went.

I love this app. I like that I can choose different themes. While I was typing in my journal my "Chapter" tabs went away...and even if I create a new journal...they won't come back! :( I'm so sad...can anyone help? Other than that issue...I LOVE EVERYTHING about it... :)

Need to focuses more on pen input

This app is just great. It won't replace your physical journal, but the multimedia capabilities are a start. Also the themes make using it unlike any other journal app. It's not bland and boring with a One Note-like screen.
My problems with it though, are the few fonts available, the lack of an autosave feature (the app restarts if you switch between apps sometimes and you lose all your unsaved work), the inability to manage your password, the disappearing textbox (I expect it to stay until I manually delete it) and no cloud syncing. Also, when there is a pop-up message, the only way to get rid of it is by quitting the app.

This is a great scrapbooking type app, but it is definitely not a "journal" like I wanted/expected.
It looks fantastic. There is relatively rich customization. But writing in this like a journal/diary is a royal pain. You have to create a new text box for each page (while editing, the text can be scrolled, but once it's set the scroll disappears and can't be used; this means you need a lot of text boxes to write anything meaningful). You can't even set default page layout/font preferences. You have to adjust it for every text box. "Chapters" would be much more useful if you could name them when you start a new journal, then add to them, inserting pages as you go, but that isn't how it works. Maybe more importantly, there is zero password protection/encryption.
If you feel like spending 3 hours to make 4 or 5 really pretty pages including media/pics/stickers (AKA a scrapbook), this works. Not practical for easy journaling. Make it easier to use and it would be the best.

I really think this app should be password protected. Other than that, I love it!
18 November 2013
This seems okay, but I've noticed other people talking about things like username and password??? Maybe they are referring to the app on their phone or tablet, because on the PC there is no username or password - I don't have any problems with saving, and also there are options like exporting and importing; I also have three journal themes to choose from, and everything else seems to work okay that other people have mentioned that they have issues with (I don't seem to have those issues).

The username and password doesn't work. So if that's something u were expecting I wouldn't download it. Other then that, its a pretty cool app. Everything else works.. u have to buy the type of diaries u want. All except formal.. and there only like $1.69 or something. But ya that's about it all the pic things and text stuff, drawing stuff, its really pretty cool! ;)

I cant even log in to it cause theres always a "connectivity issue" wouldn't recommend this to anyone.
5 August 2013
What a waste of time. On the sign in screen, after typing there is a programming glitch and you can NEVER retrieve saved work. Once again a Lenovo fail, and judging from comments will never be fixed.
DO NOT BUY A LENOVO

on day one I installed the app... jounaled my day and saved. even purchased a new cover which I noticed they did take my money from my account but I have not been able to use this app since. will not even load. will not accept my screen name or password. continually tells me I am off line (when I'm not) and tells me to wait a few moments.. It's been weeks. don't bother with this app and for sure don't give these people any money for it........
