THIS APP IS REALLY TOUGH TO UNDERSTAND AND U HAVE TO MAKE YOUR FIRST INTERFACE AS THE VIEW INTERFACE INSTEAD OF EDITING INTERFACE BACAUSE EVERYONE LIKE TO VIEW THEIR FILE AT THE START OF APP INSTEAD OF EDITING OR ADDING NEW ONE. AND YOU HAVE TO MAKE THE ZOOM CODE AS STATIC BECAUSE I HAVE TO ZOON EVEY TIME I WANT TO READ MY MEMO WHICH IS ANNOYING.

Like this app and it works well but I would love to see a few more themes added to accommodate the likes and tastes of more people! Over all, it works well.

I really like this app

Editing not easily done. I bought full version and some features quirky. I admit I'm not too tech savvy.

I wanted something straight forward and that is what I got with this app! It is easy to journal daily and to add pictures as desired. I have used the task list, which I am not completely thrilled with as it doesn't seem to remind you each time you get on, but other than that it is GREAT!!!

This is like a journal, with a bit of scrapbook included. Being able to include videos and pics besides words is wonderful. It takes a little hit or miss, but if you swipe down from the top, and up from the bottom, you'll find ways to get where you're going. I just got it last night, and now I'm getting pretty handy at the journal entries. I've started a bucket list, too. I'll be able to look back on things in the future, and that added material makes it so special. So far, I like how it seems to be working with Wordpad - the cut/paste features work, even from outside the app. I can download pics and videos from my computer files, but also from OneDrive. Also, it works with Windows speech recognition :-), which is a plus in my book.

Just got the App and dug right in! It appears we are going to get along splendidly. I haven't ran into any problems and I dug deep! Highly recommended!

I could love this app but it isn't quite an app that would be useful to me. For starters, there's no way to use a pen or stylus. I'd like to be able to write and draw on the pages (the user interface is missing). There's no way to print or export the page. The edit icon sits right on top of the emotion emoticon until you go into edit mode. There's no easy way to go back to the "home" screen. There's no way to rearrange the media added (like drag-n-drop). And, I'd like to be able to customize the journal to my own colors/styles. I'm an artist, so this part is important to me.
I see where this good app could be much better and more useful to me. I would happily pay for the app if it had these other features mentioned above.

Yeah there are a lot of good comments but this is kind negative the app should be free u can't even write ur bucket list without paying for it same with ur to do list sorry not my favorite app

After paying for the app so I could record video as diary entries the app crashes unexpectedly booting me all the way out. Today I recorded an important video 20 mins of things I needed to remember that I cant always have alone time to talk about and when I went to save it it saved all the way to the end and crashed. I go back in and the whole thing is just gone completely as if I never recorded it. I hated that it was kinda tough to get used to the menus but now that I know how it works I like that the menus are hidden well. I think that the unlock pop up in media management could be making this app crash too which is weird because I already paid and unlocked the app so I shouldn't even be seeing these anymore. Im willing to be patient because I think I will really enjoy this app if the bugs crashes can get worked out of it. I really only wanted a video diary no typing no writing so I hope that I don't have any more issues recording videos.

So far so good! I like the media features, which are easy to do. I've seen some ratings coming from people who have a hard time understanding the app. It's not that difficult folks, truly.

I downloaded this (free) app a few days ago and was very surprised to find out how much I've been enjoying journaling! I've never been a diary person, but sometimes you just need a place, a secure private place, to type out what you're feeling!
I love that you can choose from a few different themes; I use the Bamboo theme.
I have upgraded and paid the $1.99 for a few more features that I find very useful.
I like the fact that every time you close out the app, or even just minimize it, you have to log in with your password each and every time. I had a great therapist who passed away last year and I have a new therapist, but I have discovered that typing in "Story of my Life" is just like talking to that wonderful therapist. This app is a safe place for your thoughts and feelings.
Thank you to the creators of this app. And just so you know, I have never paid for an app before, but after using this app for a day, I was more than happy to pay $1.99 to open up the other features.
Perfect in modern life. We .ed itne

Well I like this app so much that I paid too unlock all the features. I'm giving it four stars instead of five because the delete function does not work. I delete and entry but when I close the app and reopen it the entry is back! Tried it about 7 times before giving up on getting rid of my test entry!

I have been using it for about six months to write poetry and found it to be very user friendly and easy to Moe files to windows

I PAID FOR THE EXRTA FEATUERS ON THIS APP WHEN THE COMPANY DID IT'S UPDATE ON 5-7-15, THEY NOW WANT TO CHARGE ME AN EXRTA $1.99 FOR THE FEATURES I ALREADY PAID FOR WHEN I FOUND THIS PROGRAM IN FEBURUARY. WHY SHOULD I HAVE TO PAY AN EXTRA $1.99 FOR THE FEATURES I ALREADY PAID FOR AND I HAVE A BANK STATEMENT THAT SAYS I PAID THIS. THIS IS UTTER CRAP, IF THIS IS NOT RESOLVED IN THE NEXT 30 DAYS I'M UNINSTATILLING THIS PROGRAM.

I really like this app. It has good background settings and several other things to do. Its more than just a journal. I can upload pictures for the moment and go back and edit it. The only thing was that it took awhile to learn about all the features. I have tried several other similar apps but this one captured my interest and allowed me to express myself. If you are looking for more than just a journal then this is the app to use.

I've been able to make the entries I want to make but I haven't tried to do anything else like see if it has any other functionality like export or whatever. It does what I need it to do. Would give it 5 stars, but since I've only ventured to add entries (and photos on entries...which is cool), I'm not sure what else it does or doesn't do.
23 April 2015
What a wonderful app! It is so easy to make entries once I learned the navigation rules.
16 April 2015
I really like how you can change the background and password protect it! It is really easy to use and a great way to vent in a protected status!
15 April 2015
Unless you pay, the advertisements can't be unlocked and therefore interfere with typing entries and using the app's features. Very disappointed in this app!
13 April 2015
I won't really use it because almost every feature on it is locked except entering tasks or writing actual diary entry. I will not use the diary entry feature though because even the backup features are locked. I might expect an app like this to have a premium feature to back up to online storage and such, but this app won't even let one keep backup copies on their own computer without unlocking. So for me, it's totally worthless. I won't keep my writing in an app that can't be backed up. It's only $1.99 but I'm not really interested enough in it, based on the little bit I've experienced, to pay to use it. My go-to software for writing is still Msword, Kingsoft Writer, OpenOffice, etc. And you can easily use the outlining feature to make them into easily searchable diaries. I used to use an older version of Evernote, but it no longer works on Windows and I hate the newest versions of Evernote. I'm uninstalling it as I've seen enough.

this app is a very good app it has lots of privacy to it but I think when you start there should be some kind of arrow to start with it.
14 March 2015
I like this App... I love the security of the password and it is easy to use.

this is so good

I like the pictures on this site, but I think that it is a little difficult to use. Not as user friendly as I had hoped, but it is the best one that I have found so far.

I love the look and feel of this diary. The entries are nicely organized and the page is clean and inviting.
I love that there is a search function, however the search only applies to titles so I have to be mindful to title my entries ahead of time if I'm writing about business and want to reference that later. I would LOVE it if the entries were able to be tagged and categorized.
Enable Tagging or some form of organizing system for later referencing
Enable bold, italic, underline functions
Create links to internet within text
Total bonus item:
Additional textured paper choices
When returning to an entry after clicking off of the page I have to re-save and then click edit again in order to write on the page. Minor detail, but I thought you should know.
