The best journal app.

This is the best journal/diary app I've tried. I can write down my various thoughts every day as they come to me, each on its own entry. I write everything from ideas I come up with to my feelings about the day to things I plan to do in the future. So far I've been writing around 2 to 4 short entries each day. The interface is clean and minimal and the font is a pleasure to write with and read. A few other apps like this that I've tried gave me a full Rich Text editor to play with, and that added functionality really just made me lose focus - after all, I'm not writing a novel. This app is clear and to the point, and for that reason I consider its minimalism a strength. The prompts on the home screen are also interesting, though I wish there were more of them. It would also be neat if people could create their own prompts that other people could answer. Of the apps I've tried, this is definitely the best of its kind. Highly recommended.

Decent Replacement for Day One

I used to use Day One when I had a Mac and snagged this one when I bought my new PC. This app feels a bit more "in development" than Day One did, but it does about the same thing and I'm pretty satisfied. The main drawback for me is the inability to change the font family or size on the entries. I like to keep my font size a little smaller and by default it's pretty large. There's also no "close" button on the menu that pops up on the bottom and I've noticed it gets in the way of your text when you have it open and your text reaches the bottom. Other than that, though, it's a decent app and I look forward to future improvements.

I would like some more stuff

I like the app and the design. I would like the ability to add a picture to a day. Sometimes I write about something and I would love to add a picture with what I wrote about. Keep up the good work!!

Great questions that make words flow! Amazing

I like everything, simple to use and well worded questions that sets a different mood for every entry. Great for writers and people who love keeping journals.

It is Awesome!

It's really cool. I can write what I want to- whenever I want! It gives me prompts (basically it gives you topics or ideas to write about). It get's my mind rolling. It has Spell Check, Bold, Italicized, and Underlined options (just right click when in a prompt). *You CANNOT go back and edit something once you have clicked the checkmark* FYI. You can Backup and Restore, have a passcode on Writr, and each time you click Prompts it gives you different topics to choose from. Really a very good app! Must have!

Clean and simple!

I think they've done an excellent job with this app! The interface is among the cleanest I've EVER seen-- even among iOS apps! It works well and reliably. The only things I'd ask for are the ability to attach multiple images to entries and having PDF exports for the purpose of having a separate, independent backup.

Love, Love, Love!

I looove this app! It has helped me learn how to journal more often by giving my prompts to use when I can't think of anything to write and showing the days I used the app on the calendar. I was able to develop my journaling habit which has helped with my anxiety quite a bit. Love this app!

Great for Journaling

I love the simplicity of this app, and the syncing between devices works wonderfully. Calendar linking to journals does not seem to work with me, which is not really a big deal. Would suggest adding a time stamp to each journal instead of just date, but also not a big deal if it doesn't happen. I use it everyday for my daily journals, and have disabled prompts (love that I have this option) but could see the prompts being a nice touch if I was a creative writer. I think it would be cool if prompts could be saved for later because I know they change every so often. Again I don't use them so this feature is just a suggestion to improve the app.
