Not great
by littlefoot2009 on 2019/06/23 06:12
This app will not work on my device! It is always just a black screen!
Great notebook app
by SapphireAngel412 on 2019/06/22 14:09
I really like this app. I use it all the time from simple notes and grocery list or sometimes short journal type entries.
Decent
by kennede14 on 2019/06/21 04:52
I love it...not only is it therapeutic but it’s not too techy to the point where it’s a clear line between you actually writing and ou typing I. This little journal. I just wish it had a few more features such as a theme and all. But overall it’s pretty nice and I like how it’s lined up like an actually journal with real dates and times and it’s in sequential order.
Just Right
by BAL707 on 2019/06/20 15:14
I wanted a journal to track daily items, events, etc. but not a diary. Notebook was the answer. It’s simple to access and simple to use. It has cut and paste features, password protection (if needed), and more. It tracks any note by date and time. I have accessed it many times to get specifics about a topic instead of relying on memory. Great app.
Love it

Read the title!
Confusing
by MollieCat05 on 2019/06/18 15:08
I decided to get a journal or a diary to write in. I’m ten. I looked at one other app like this. Then I deleted it. I got this one. It looked confusing because it had the dates of the past two days and it had other writing in it. I didn’t know how to write in it. The app told me I could swipe to turn the page, so I tried that but it didn’t work. I think for other people it may be really easy for other people to use but for me I think this isn’t the app for me. I think I should just get manual notebook.
loved it!
by onp69 on 2019/06/14 03:25
i use this every single day . the only recommendation would be to make a custom color option . the all white theme is kind of depressing.😺
PERFECT!!!
by DSF0101 on 2019/06/13 08:34
You got this app down perfectly!! I don’t usually take the time to write reviews but I am so happy and very impressed at the simplicity and perfection of this app. I love the passcode feature I love the ease of use GREAT JOB!!!
Yup
by ferbinuf slupinkerd on 2019/06/12 06:18
Just what I needed 👍
Nice, simple, useful app for maintaining daily routines
by Abc zad on 2019/06/10 05:02
Scope for improvements include giving a search facility , font colors , set reminder for a specific day event.
Very Useful.
by Fatima Loves ASMR on 2019/06/07 18:35
Sometimes you need to let out thoughts that can’t be or shouldn’t be said out loud and this app really helped me with that.
Great app!
by Nathan Kretz on 2019/06/06 20:28
This app is great for almost anything you need to do. Whether you want to use it as a diary, a checklist, a schedule, a notebook, etc, it will definitely suit your needs. This app comes with a wide variety of settings, including the choice to add a password that others need to enter before entering the app. The only thing you might consider paying for is to get rid of the ads, but that can be expected with any great app. Keeping your notes, lists, or private information in one safe, easy to use place, has never been easier. Love it!
So easy
by Asleep at the app on 2019/06/02 02:14
Perfect for thinking out loud Update There’s no support and no way to sync between devices. As said in another review not sure if anyone speaks English.
Super Basic
by Boosyeg on 2019/05/30 13:16
It’s free and it works but there are absolutely no bells and whistles with this app. The best feature for me is that it can lock and I can search by date, but that’s it. Can’t even put bullet points or numbers in if you’re making a list. I would give it 5 stars if they would give us a simple text editing feature like most word type documents have to have underline, bold, bullets, etc. Otherwise, it does what it says it does. I use it nearly every day and have had no trouble with it.
Love this App!
by CpuDoc on 2019/05/27 15:38
Like that I can store pages of text for my daily diabetes diary. My diabetes tracking app does not allow for a lots of text in the notes and it’s nice I can add to the log anytime during the day. What would be helpful, is the ability to create categories (maybe five?) where I could have one log for diabetes, one for general health notes, etc. Simple App, Incredibly Useful!
Incredible note book
by 2gfom& on 2019/05/25 21:12
This is the best book in the world thank you 🙏 I love it I’m enjoying it
So Simple
by devxyn on 2019/05/23 01:26
This app is my go to when I have feelings I need to write down but don’t want to use pen and paper. It’s so simple to use & is easily accessible. I wish it had a few options for aesthetic customizations, but it still serves its purpose.
Great!
by AlayziaNM on 2019/05/16 06:59
I use it everyday and there's never any crashes. Definitely will keep it for as long as I can
Great Notebook
by Baybaloo on 2019/05/13 20:47
The book come in handy especially during time where I do not have a pen to write things down. One of the wonderful feature is the ability to send the note to other people via email or message.
Reall like but...
by Strgzr on 2019/05/12 15:51
I'm really enjoying this to keep a journal of my daily eating habits. The only thing I think is really missing is being able to back it up to other devices, and to correlate between devices-such as when you're not near your mobile phone and you're on your desktop, being able to have the app there and when you write on it there it updates the iPhone and vice-versa.
Serves its purpose
by toaster_waffle on 2019/05/12 02:49
Works pretty well, only a little confusing at first. I use this app as a prayer journal, and I’m pretty content with its features.
Love Writing with this
by C2 chief on 2019/05/10 04:59
My writing is safe and secure here. Only suggestions are a search feature for keywords possibly. Or a way to section longer works into for example chapters. That’s all! Nice job
Simple but good
by Mamaof2cuties on 2019/05/06 01:13
I really like this journal. I only wish I could copy something from somewhere and paste it to the journal. Sometimes I have song verses I like and I copy paste for one that hits me that day. But I can’t paste so I type it out which takes a long time depending on the verse. Otherwise love the journal. Not complicated. Love that as soon as I get out I need the password to get in
Daily notes
by Gx110 on 2019/05/05 18:14
Extremely helpful everything that comes to mind is written down! No filter since you can lock the notes.
Pretty cool
by Night_Crash on 2019/05/05 03:16
Simple and plain to use in the best way. Other journals have so many complicated options and stuff. It would be nice though if you could enter in pictures
A great app!!
by Cheerleader#5 on 2019/04/26 11:50
I have always used a hand held diary. But this is so easy because if something good happens at school or whatever happens I can right it down. All of these secrets and everything I keep them in this app because I set up a password so only I can get in!!!! I fully recommend
Great!
by Daleryn Chan on 2019/04/25 20:08
I just started using this app today and overall I think it's simple and nothing too spontaneous. I have a recommendation. I feel like you should add the option of adding pictures from your gallery to your journal. I would really like that!
This is great
by Hat onw Human on 2019/04/20 17:36
I love this app I had it before and didn’t use it often after my phone Broke and I got a new one I re-downloaded it and I love it. It can keep your secrets that you don’t want anyone to know. I always feel that a diary that you would hand write in is to easy to find. You could get the diary’s with the passwords but that costs money this is free and you can add a password. I use this app almost everyday. Another thing is that it keeps dates for you. So if you were to go back you would know the exact date that you wrote it. It keeps the time to. I rate this app 4 stars because an app can always get better and nothing is perfect.
I love it but....
by Annette's Account on 2019/04/13 17:17
How do you lock it
Super Secure!
by timothy the triangle on 2019/04/13 08:56
This app is very secure. The password works and one other feature I noticed is that when you go to kill the app (by double clicking the home button) the app automatically goes to a blank screen so you can't see entries even from the control center. That's one thing I always worry about, if I go into an app will it show an old version of a last session while it initially loads up. This app has it handled. The app itself is just a simple journaling tool. One thing I would like to see is the ability to create a decoy page. This would be good in a situation where someone will not stop bothering you about opening the app and seeing all of your personal entries. However this isn't major and doesn't take away from the app. It may be because I have such an old phone but sometimes when I am typing on the app, the line I'm typing on goes wonky and my keyboard goes above it so that I can't see what I'm writing. To fix that you have to leave the current entry and go back. All in all it's a great app!
Great way to vent
by Bellabook on 2019/04/12 00:00
This is so much easier then writing it all down. Definitely recommend
Easy to use
by Olie216 on 2019/04/11 13:24
Have only been using for a couple of weeks now and I really like it. Simple to use, nothing too fancy but it does what I need, a simple journal to record daily notes. I am using the free version which has very few ads so far, may switch to paid version if ads become a problem.
Add some more features.
by faisalbin on 2019/04/08 16:10
Add color options and attachment of media files.
Great app!
by Quikk_observer on 2019/04/07 13:27
Very simple, yet convenient and easy. Just what I needed for taking notes.
Notebook- Journaling
by MRae1471 on 2019/04/07 10:13
I use this as a quick way of jotting down my thoughts for the day & I love it! It’s so easy & functional to use!
Really satisfied
by m21-a on 2019/04/05 02:49
Amazing app, easy interface, simple, and a great substitute for an actual notebook.
Good app
by *Pumpkin&2012 on 2019/04/01 10:24
I don’t have any complaints.
One BIG thing.
by sgreenlc on 2019/03/31 13:57
I DIDNT GET THE PASSWORD. Like, I have no code. So, now people can just get into my diary,!
Love app but issue
by leahcharper on 2019/03/30 05:16
Hello, I couldn’t find a way to contact privately for feedback, but I’d like to say that foremost, I love the simplicity of this app and I give it 5 stars for that. My issue is a bug that occurs in saving posts. I recently edited and saved a post a few times, and when I tried to open it again, a message at the bottom of the screen read “AccessDeniedAccess”. It is also not showing up in the count of existing posts I’ve already created. Maybe I confused the app by editing and saving it a few times instead of just once?
Great
by AndrzejZak on 2019/03/28 22:08
Works as described
Landscape and portrait
by justisjack on 2019/03/28 20:46
I am not going to use this app because I wanted to use it on an IPAD with a keyboard but the keyboard is set to use the iPad configured on its side. The app does not turn into what I’ll call landscape mode. Otherwise minimalist which I like and ads are non-obtrusive.
Wait
by Wowboy 600 on 2019/03/27 14:40
Wait I thought you could put in pictures but nah I’m fine
Love it!!!!!
by Karen Gonzales on 2019/03/18 22:44
I ❤️ this app u guys are genius’s to create this!
Amazing but a few changed needed
by ishii_10 on 2019/03/18 12:35
Hi, I have been using the app for a year now, and I just want to see that it’s absolutely amazing. The only change I would suggest is the feature of adding pictures along with the notes for the day.
Noted
by jdmstskahsy on 2019/03/07 05:58
I don’t usually write reviews but this app is amazing I recommend it
Note
by dedrdrftt on 2019/03/04 07:01
I love the note for journaling but am at a standstill I cannot get it to turn to a new page. What’s gone wrong?
Love this app.
by Capt. DSwan on 2019/02/27 08:53
This is a great app. The only thing I find it missing is a Key Word search function.
Lost Everything
by Bridgyboo93 on 2019/02/26 14:53
I used this app to write to my husband everyday while he was in basic training, so as to not send too many physical letters. Had a glitch with my phone that caused me to have to replace it, and when the new phone restored all of my previous apps, all of my entries were gone, with no way that I can find of getting them back.
Good for what you need
by Elementspark on 2019/02/23 23:20
No frills or special features but it’s functional. I’ve found myself jotting down thoughts throughout my day. What makes it different from the app that comes with the phone(notepad or whatnot) is that you can add a code so it’s your own private thoughts and no one can get in. It organizes by date so i can tell how often i journal. I like it for the simplicity and the privacy.
I love it
by Chikaoffka on 2019/02/21 19:24
I really love this app. The only thing I have an issue with is you can’t change the fonts or size or the words and I would love to see that. But aside from that I love and used this app all the time.
Very Nice
by Quitting Smoking on 2019/02/21 18:51
Easy to use. Responsive and Quick. Great for a detail oriented personality, as well as the bottom-line type.
Love it, BUT...
by TheSham1 on 2019/02/15 23:50
My son accidentally deleted it from my phone and there is no way of recovering the lost information/ entries that was lost in the app. Wish there was a way to back this app up so it doesn’t happen again. But other than that, I love it. The privacy of it is an added bonus 😍
Incredible
by -BWM on 2019/02/15 21:11
What an amazing achievement! Not only do you get a completely interactive set of notebooks but you also create a beautifully arranged set of Dropbox folders along the way.
Good app
by Scotty091 on 2019/02/14 18:11
I really like this app and use it on a daily basis but I’d really like the option to save my entries to be cloud based or to where I can create an account to save my entries..just in case something happens to my phone or I get a new one, etc.. I’m really scared that after all of my many entries, one day I will lose them all.
Password Reset?
by password needs resetting on 2019/02/14 00:44
I loved this app until I lost/forgot the password. There does not appear to be a way to reset it. I went to the support page on the website, but it’s in Japanese (which I don’t speak)! Somewhere out there in the web it said to try several (3?) time and it will prompt you to reset but I tried and tried and tried many times, and nothing!
Concerning things
by Coldparadise450 on 2019/02/12 16:36
Smooth and nice to use no complaints thus far, but I’m worried about where all my entries will go if i get a new phone or something happens to my phone theres no cloud or anything. That’s my only issues and i hope theres a way to preserve it but for now i will still put these into a traditional journal/diary.
Great app
by JaiC13 on 2019/02/10 00:27
Great app, just please continue updates so we won’t lose use of this app. Thanks!
Great
by Lilly Book on 2019/02/09 18:09
I love the app! It is very helpful that it has a password so people can’t get in. Good job!❤️
Use at your own risk
by VersaMax on 2019/02/09 05:48
If your notes are of any value, DO NOT use this app. There is no backup, sync or export options. If something happens, your notes are permanently gone.
Great app
by JoelHM12 on 2019/02/05 04:55
Liked the app because of how simple it is and how easy it is to use. The only draw back is that you can’t back up your progress, you will have to export it to somewhere else
Notebook
by smile bow on 2019/02/01 03:13
This app is awesome because it has password so then when my siblings on my phone then they can’t see what I’m writing, but unless I do the password. I have been writing my stories on this app. For my suggestion is that you should get it too. 😀😀😀
Really good
by Arianna Lee Martinez on 2019/01/31 04:42
I’ve never really been able to find a reliable journal to write in. And this is so good and worth my time! But I feel like there should be a night setting our somewhere we can customize the papers. You know it make it our own. Any who thank you so much of making this app!
Great app
by Boyyy on 2019/01/29 19:20
I love having this free app on my phone! The notebook is so so easy to use and stores notes in a user-friendly way by dates. It also lets you edit and site the information for as long as one needs. I highly recommend this app.
Locked out
by Erm19871216 on 2019/01/27 04:41
I just thought I’d try out the password lock feature. It worked at first but then when I tried to change it and eventually remove the password, it asked me for the password I just entered and did not recognize it. I tried both passwords and neither work. So now I’m locked out of the journal I’ve been keeping for 3 years. The app hasn’t been updated in all that time and the app support links go to error pages, so it looks like the app is no longer maintained. Don’t download.
Dat
by datrvp on 2019/01/25 03:10
Perfect app. Simple but with lots of pluses like auto-page backward and forward, auto date takes you right to the current date so you're ready to write. Add to current date's info via edit function. Works best for me over any other app of its type.
Bug fix
by fushialady on 2019/01/22 13:55
I couldn’t find anywhere to report bugs to the app developer. My iPhone and iPad are not transferring notes from one to the other. There is no where to log in so I can retrieve my information. I really want this to be seem less and work together so if you could fix that this would be a great app.please someone who speaks and writes in English please help me out with this app I cannot even send emails from this app on my iPad
Don’t switch phones
by Jenaejanna on 2019/01/20 03:11
I really wanted to use this journal but after research There’s no account creation for sign in meaning it’s only meant for the phone it’s on meaning you will lose everything once you change your phone If I had started using it there’s also no search button My journal is years old Scrolling forever is not an option Really prefer to stay simplistic which I can’t seem to find anywhere But without these two functions I’m afraid I’ll have to keep searching for another journal to transfer all my Penny stuff onto Penzu by the way - if you click on an entry from years ago - you can’t flip pages like a book and leaving the entry always brings you back to the top (most recent) and you have to start scrolling forever again to get back to the time period of entries you were reviewing
Love it
by Tray Diane on 2019/01/18 20:45
I really like this app! I would give it 5 stars if it had sync capabilities across devices and cloud storage. Please consider making this part of your app. Thank you
really good app!!
by love father john misty on 2019/01/16 06:12
i love this app but it's been a while since i used it and i forgot my password. maybe there should be a reset password option? all in all a great app
Help! Forgot my password!
by str415 on 2019/01/15 19:31
Love this app but I changed my password recently and I can’t remember it! Any help??
Lost All Writing, No Saving/Sign I’m Options
by Suhuk Maddik on 2019/01/15 00:12
I had this app on 2 other phones before with both a year of daily writing on each Broke both phones And all my data was lost If there was a account sign in feature where all your notes/writing is saved, it would actually be a good app, but as far as I know, everything could easily be lost if you get a new phone, maybe if you delete the app, don’t know, but I wouldn’t try. Pretty mad about this.
Pretty simple
by Wirdbrain on 2019/01/13 13:26
This is the first app of this type that I've used, so I can't really say whether it's the best. It's simple to use and avoids most "built-in" formatting. Moving between pages to add to or edit a previous page is a little rough, requiring 2-3 separate operations instead of simply scrolling back or forward. I do like that today's date appears automatically. I'll use this app until a better one comes along.
Absolutely all you need
by mspeeps123 on 2019/01/12 14:13
Looking at 100 other journals this is all you need. Use the voice feature talk your heart out and it’s protected. Perfect in its simplicity.
Easy use!
by pink hair monokuma teddybear on 2019/01/12 04:22
I thought this notebook app is really easy to use! I love sliding the pages like a book and also how it’s formatted. I’m really happy there’s a password option so it can also serve as a ‘dairy’ type app! And it doesn’t track all my info! Loved it ❤️❤️👏
What's not to like
by Msabbylabby on 2019/01/11 20:48
I can write as much as I want. It's private. It helps me keep up with what happened when. Good and bad and if I want to prove I told my husband something. 😉 " See I did tell you, it's in my journal. And you said yes!" 01/2019 Still love love it. Still use it at least once or twice a week.
Review
by Madelon969497 on 2019/01/10 22:55
It is good wish that you could change something’s but it is ok
Awesome!!!!
by Mama2M on 2019/01/09 00:34
I love this app. It is what I have been looking for. Now I can write in a journal at night snd don't have to turn on the light. It is amazing. And it is only $1 99 to remove the ads!!!
Diary Review
by GB3 Photography on 2019/01/08 04:23
Simple and easy to use. Works for me.
An account would be nice
by HeidiB899 on 2019/01/05 17:14
Although I really love how it’s set up and I use it as a diary (for my thoughts, and things that happened that day) I really think that there should be some type of account. Like if I were to accidentally delete it all my entries will be deleted and I don’t want that to happen. If there was a login thing that happened then I could just give my username and password and all my entries will be saved.
My Personal Diary
by alanisvu0616 on 2019/01/04 13:51
This app serves as a personal journal for me, and I’ve been using it since 2016. I love it dearly and hope it never stops being updated/quit on. As a daily user, I would love to be able to add photos and categories! By categories, I mean the ability to tag photos so that way I can see all my rants in one place, all my dreams in one place, etc. I would also love a search bar! Sometimes I want to look up a specific entry that I recall but don’t feel like scourging for. A change of fonts and titles would be great! Italics and bold letters, please? I hope adding attachments won’t mess up the format, nor take up a whole page for one photo. I’ve been using this app for 3 years now, and I adore the simplicity, but a couple more features would be greatly appreciated. I have tried One Day journal, and although I love how you can add photos and tags to entries, I love this apps format. Please, don’t abandon this app! I’m desperate for more features.
Good
by Register22 on 2018/12/31 13:29
Has always been my go to for a note of app.
Passcode

I forget my passcode ! How can i get it back?
Simple, useful and needed.
by Markeith3000 on 2018/12/28 23:38
Thank you.
Better and way less confusing than its competitors
by Wilbourg on 2018/12/28 12:22
Simple and without need of instructions so complex a Ph.d would be baffled, this app is the real deal. It is powerful and simple and is one of the best productivity apps out there.
Forgot passcode
by LeAnnC89 on 2018/12/24 05:35
This app is great and super easy to use. However, I forgot my passcode and I have no idea how to reset it or recover it.
Great app
by Batkid07 on 2018/12/24 04:00
Honestly love this app so easy to use and read no adds and doesn’t take up a lot of storage
Love this ❤️
by taliasando on 2018/12/22 14:05
i never write reviews for anything but this app is def my fave app, it’s super easy to use, really simple display, barely uses battery, and it doesn’t charge you to put a password on it. def would recommend if you need a diary 📔
Basic and very functional
by T2green02 on 2018/12/20 22:25
Wanted an easy to use journal to keep track of training and this is it.
Help
by CapWife on 2018/12/19 03:35
I had this app for so long and wrote in it very often and then I just got a new phone and lost everything is their any way I can get it back
Crashed and deleted everything
by Lunamoona on 2018/12/17 11:37
After scaling reviews of other diary apps, I decided on this one because it seemed to have the least amount of problems. I downloaded it and immediately typed out a long, beautiful entry. I was so excited to read over it—then, all of a sudden, the app crashed and deleted the entire thing. All gone in half a second. Deleted the app right away. Will not be using this again.
Great app
by ($6; on 2018/12/16 18:25
This is a great app. I love the simplicity.
So simple and useful
by Freckled_bean on 2018/12/16 16:49
Simple journal to document what is in your mind or monitoring. I am using it to track how I experience some pain that I am trying to get under control. This log will help me describe what is going on to my doctor and remember accurately what goes on. There must be tens of similar ways this app could be useful.
good overall except
by alaaaaaanaa on 2018/12/16 05:14
hi! i've been using the app for a while now and i think that there should be a feature where you can login to a certain account (twitter facebook instagram etc etc) so that way you can login if you get a new device or deleted the app and wanted to come back.
needs syncing
by US-Agent on 2018/12/15 17:49
last update was 2 years ago. is this app still supported?would like to buy the full version.its a pretty app and it would be nice to know, future support and uodates are coming?
Help
by bananaanna257 on 2018/12/15 13:58
This is a great app but I’m trying to put a password on it
Really Good, no bugs, organized perfectly
by Bot19760 on 2018/12/14 00:40
Good for stories, and song writing. Organized really well, and I haven’t experienced any bugs at all.
A request
by shaniah :) on 2018/12/09 04:20
I like the app overall but I would appreciate if all the notes from the same day went on different pages instead of one
Not good
by Lisa4913 on 2018/12/06 15:26
I was using it and after a month or so it didn’t let me access anything I write but the last page so everything I wrote down I didn’t see the only thing they are truthful with is that you can make a password to enter in
Pretty good! Password actually works!!!
by lilahgirl1126 on 2018/12/06 03:37
I really like this app because you can add in dates and type in to it, pretty much do whatever you think of. Also my absolute favorite thing about this app is the password because it always works even if you don’t clear out the app. I have been looking for an app that the password actually works because what if I have something I don’t want people to know? A password. Most apps don’t actually work with the password. This one does. So if you are reading these and wondering if you should get the app, the answer is yes you should. I rate five stars because of the password.
Exceptional! Easy to use!
by Memmawhite on 2018/06/03 16:22
I have always kept a manual notebook diary. Recently, I considered transferring my journal to app-based. Before purchasing, I decided to try out available apps. This was my first choice. All went well for the first two days. (deleted the rest of my previous review). With some reservations, I finally bought the app. After several journal entries, I felt a growing sense of doom. How do I get my journals into a different medium, like pdf, intact? How do I preserve my recorded thoughts from vanishing some day? What happens if I were to switch phone carriers? Can I sync my entries to a cloudbased repository to be retrieved at will? The questions are endless, and I hope Koji Ito, the developer will read these reviews, and take our interests and concerns into account. I hope he can read and understand English. Domo Arigato. After using the app for some time, I felt a bit more comfortable with it, hence my reevaluation to 4 stars. The minimalist approach is impressive, but an upgrade that includes a search function would help navigate and locate critical records quickly.
One small suggestion
by Tms2564 on 2017/12/26 14:07
I gave this app 4 stars as opposed to 5 because there’s one small improvement that could be made to this app to make it perfect! This app functions as a personal journal for me to write my thoughts down in an to vent when necessary. The only thing is missing is that I cannot paste images or pictures onto the pages of the notebook. I can use emojis but I can’t paste any of my own personal images, Memes, or use my Bitmoji at all. I attempted to see if I could use my Bitmoji and it actually locks the keyboard down and then I cannot get it back to the regular keyboard in order to type in my passcode to allow myself back into my Notebook. There seems to be a bug there. I’ll have to wait several days for it to reset itself and let me back in. But I enjoy this app very much and I use it several days a week. I hope the developer will read this and consider my suggestion because it would be fantastic if I could paste in anything I wanted to on my pages. Thanks!
A journal, not a diary, with flexibility to write what you want
by Bessie21644 on 2018/09/29 23:36
This is a plain, generally straightforward journal, that allows a person to write about what happens , their feelings, or whatever they want. This app fits the bill. You can go back to a table of dates and add to something that you wrote, but unfortunately the addition is not dated. IAlso, if you find yourself at the index, getting elsewhere does not seem intuitive. You can see from there how to start writing, but not necessarily figure out how to find what you already wrote or the instructions. Once you figure that out (press the number next to the year) navigation is easier. However I like the ability to write freely without limitations on the number of characters you use. I like being able to reread what I have written before and add to it even if I have to add the date of the new comments myself. I like this app a lot, and would give it a 4.5 if I could
Would give 5 stars but...
by Writer-at-large on 2018/03/31 15:23
This is really a well-designed app in its simplicity and functionality. But, it’s been over two years since the last update and there are just a couple of features it’s missing that the designer should consider adding if it won’t take away from how it feels now: As others have noted, you can’t insert photos. Second, you can only print, email, etc. one note at a time. It would be really great if you could send an entire year, or the whole notebook to a pdf or Word file. Or even just a text file. Third, it is not available on my iPad mini, which is my preferred writing tool. I would love to be able to switch between my phone and my iPad, maybe by saving my files to Dropbox as I do with my Scrivener files. All that said, it is a beautifully designed notebook app. I haven’t found anything else that looks and feels as natural as this one. As a writer I would use this a whole lot more if the above were available. But for now I will continue journaling on Scrivener, though it is a little more cumbersome creating new notes and formatting them consistently.
This is great
by Hat onw Human on 2019/04/20 17:36
I love this app I had it before and didn’t use it often after my phone Broke and I got a new one I re-downloaded it and I love it. It can keep your secrets that you don’t want anyone to know. I always feel that a diary that you would hand write in is to easy to find. You could get the diary’s with the passwords but that costs money this is free and you can add a password. I use this app almost everyday. Another thing is that it keeps dates for you. So if you were to go back you would know the exact date that you wrote it. It keeps the time to. I rate this app 4 stars because an app can always get better and nothing is perfect.
Super Secure!
by timothy the triangle on 2019/04/13 08:56
This app is very secure. The password works and one other feature I noticed is that when you go to kill the app (by double clicking the home button) the app automatically goes to a blank screen so you can't see entries even from the control center. That's one thing I always worry about, if I go into an app will it show an old version of a last session while it initially loads up. This app has it handled. The app itself is just a simple journaling tool. One thing I would like to see is the ability to create a decoy page. This would be good in a situation where someone will not stop bothering you about opening the app and seeing all of your personal entries. However this isn't major and doesn't take away from the app. It may be because I have such an old phone but sometimes when I am typing on the app, the line I'm typing on goes wonky and my keyboard goes above it so that I can't see what I'm writing. To fix that you have to leave the current entry and go back. All in all it's a great app!
Pretty good! Password actually works!!!

Like it but it Could be improved
by Common Reviewer9 on 2017/03/21 04:00
I love this easy to use journal. I love the password. I love the separating time stamps. I love how organized it is HOWEVER this app could be improved if It had a section within a section, as in ; I think I should be able to make multiple journal entries on the same day, but in different sections because they were of different topics. Does that make sense? Like what if on march 20 I wanted to write about my day, relationships, school , and work, but I didn't want it grouped all on one Long message. I think this app could improve by having multiple ways to organize entries , like by topic instead of date.
Easy to use
by Jillypooh on 2017/03/17 01:24
I'm taking care of a loved one and needed somewhere to keep track of info from dr appointments and such without clogging up Notes which I use for personal stuff. I tried another note taking app but got so frustrated because it wants to sort notes by their title but doesn't put them in correct numerical order if I date them. So I decided to try a journal and this is perfect! I was able to go in and create entries and backdate them and they're all in chronological order. I like being able to swipe through the pages when I'm looking for a specific entry!
Simple note keeping app
by Daw007 on 2017/01/12 13:04
This app works as advertised. It is a remarkably simple note taking app. I have found it to work quite well with apples accessibility software also. The single largest demerit that I would have to give the app is the fact that it does not utilize touch ID to possibly protect notes. In the case of someone using it as a journal, which I do myself, that feature would be extremely helpful. I attempted to set up a passcode, but was unable to really make much use of it or even understand how it was supposed to be implemented. Other than that however, the app is, as I said above, a wonderfully good app for doing simple notetaking.
So far so good
by NatePenn on 2018/08/22 15:54
I really like the simplicity of this notebook I like the record my thoughts first thing in the morning however I skip the day and was not able apparently to go back to the day I messed and log it as such that would be a great fix because sometimes I am not consistent. I like the idea of being able to print these out and put them in a different medium like another review were suggested but I like the simplicity of her all maybe a search feature is helpful if I do this for years I’m gonna go back and try to find something but so far so good thank you for making this
Great! Highly recommended!
by sense_say on 2016/05/24 17:53
I absolutely love this app! The user interface is smooth. I'm able to start it up as soon as I need to, which allows me to make journal entries verily easily. I downloaded this app, a few hours before my wife gave birth to our daughter. It is a great way for me to document my experiences into parenthood. I love it. My wife enjoys reading my entries. My only request would be for a way to maybe export my journal via email or something, so I can eventually make a hard copy for my wife and I to read; and maybe even for my daughter when she gets old enough.
One suggestion
by Stifflerwells on 2016/11/28 04:49
Love this app. Would love it way more if there was a way to create an account using an email and password so that we can access this on more than one device. I had to reset my phone & unbeknownst to me my phone hadn't backed up in four days. Thus, four days of my diary are missing. They were four of the days that I really wrote a lot and wanted to remember distinctly. Now, I don't have them or even remember half of what I wrote. That bums me out. If we were able to create accounts I could've just logged in and all of my entries would still have been there. Other than that I love it.
My Personal Diary
by alanisvu0616 on 2019/01/04 13:51
This app serves as a personal journal for me, and I’ve been using it since 2016. I love it dearly and hope it never stops being updated/quit on. As a daily user, I would love to be able to add photos and categories! By categories, I mean the ability to tag photos so that way I can see all my rants in one place, all my dreams in one place, etc. I would also love a search bar! Sometimes I want to look up a specific entry that I recall but don’t feel like scourging for. A change of fonts and titles would be great! Italics and bold letters, please? I hope adding attachments won’t mess up the format, nor take up a whole page for one photo. I’ve been using this app for 3 years now, and I adore the simplicity, but a couple more features would be greatly appreciated. I have tried One Day journal, and although I love how you can add photos and tags to entries, I love this apps format. Please, don’t abandon this app! I’m desperate for more features.
I love it
by Coywolf1 on 2016/04/02 23:07
I love this app and it's amazing but it'll be more amazing if we can choose what type of writing style we want and if we can choose what color the text is for each page and even paragraph. Also I noticed that there's no password recovery. One more thing is the search bar, maybe we could categorize how each of our entries are. I use this app to talk to God it's amazing looking back at my old prayers and realizing He answered. Putting connections I never thought of before. When he doesn't answer I know it's me, but He does hear and He does listen. God bless 🐼.
Pretty great
by Grifdoggydog on 2017/09/18 13:15
There are many things to love about this app. The way it automatically stores what day and time notes were written is nice. The passcode makes me feel safe about lending people my phone when necessary. Lastly, the simple format makes for few distractions. However, there are some things I feel need to be included with this app. What would be nice is the ability to attach photos to notes, or for the time to be included at the top if each note rather than the bottom. But these still don't stop it from being my go to for journaling.
Great!
by rosie.gold on 2018/01/16 02:52
It's a fantastic app! Everything is super easy to use. The one small thing I'd like is if it started you off where you ended your typing.. cause I type a lot and when I go to start again, I have to scroll ALL the way down. It's kind of annoying but it's not that big of a problem..also, I’d love to be able to add photos. other than that, fantastic everything is perfect!! If you like writing, recording, this is a fantastic app. Hopefully they update again the last update was a long time ago..
Great app!
by Nathan Kretz on 2019/06/06 20:28
This app is great for almost anything you need to do. Whether you want to use it as a diary, a checklist, a schedule, a notebook, etc, it will definitely suit your needs. This app comes with a wide variety of settings, including the choice to add a password that others need to enter before entering the app. The only thing you might consider paying for is to get rid of the ads, but that can be expected with any great app. Keeping your notes, lists, or private information in one safe, easy to use place, has never been easier. Love it!
Flawed
by Montygirl379 on 2018/10/31 08:46
When I first downloaded this app I thought it was the best thing for keeping my passwords and usernames for all of the many things you need Pswrds for, and I’ve had this app for about 3+ yrs now and was singing it’s praises until the other day when the one thing that I didn’t like about the app became my worst nightmare. I tried to add something and you have to hold down on it until it moves to an edit page, but this time when I did that everything became highlighted and I was trying to unhighlight it and Instead I lost everything!!!! All my passwords gone! I’m not the most tech savvy person so this really is devastating to me! So only 1 Star while I figure out how to get all my passwords back. And find another app that works better.
Just what I needed
by Kritajya Kunj on 2016/09/01 14:05
I was searching for a program that would let me write whatever I wanted on a certain date and would take as much as I could give it. I tried a few and this app was the best I found. It isn't for making notes of topics you want to easily access. It's for daily "rambling" and just letting you experience the day in words. It hasn't done any "hang-ups" yet, or lost anything. I just changed over from a life-long habit of using paper notebooks for journaling. So far, I'm sold on this app.
:)
by Xannai on 2016/07/17 17:22
I love this app! I especially appreciate how there is a password - there's somethings that you just don't want other people to know. I do, however, wish that there was a way you could put in a photo. Other than that, I find this app is a perfect way to clear your mind. I love how it shows the time when you entered something. This app is something that you can't find in other apps that are buggy and cost money. It is clean, simple, and easy to use with very minimal - if any - bugs. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Great work!
by Swordfish.io on 2018/02/15 03:28
I love this app because it is soooooo convenient! I don't have to haul this big book around and by a new one when it gets full. I don't have to worry about people finding the key and sneaking in it. Although this app does have some flaws. First you can't draw or insert pics. And maybe make it so that the user can customize the look of it. That would be epic! And maybe add some tunes. And give it a front cover. Im popping with more ideas than i can put on this review so I'll stop here. Keep it up!
Please add functionality to include photos
by Katie the Great 76 on 2018/05/22 05:53
I really enjoy writing in this journal. My husband died from mesothelioma a little over 8 months ago. This journal has been an outlet for my grief. In my opinion the one thing that could make this app better is to include functionality that allows users to include pictures & other attachments. Eventually my daughters & grandkids may read this. It would be wonderful if the journal included the capability to attach pictures, pdf files, etc. Please consider upgrading the app to include this functionality. Thanks.
Thank you so much!
by GingerBreadMan!! on 2018/05/30 23:22
This app, simple as it may be is super helpful. I keep on forgetting things I want to talk about once I go to my therapist and I couldn’t right anything in the normal notes app in case people see it. Instead I hid this app in a folder with the un-deletable apps apple gives you and never forgot topics again! Also just typing down my feelings turned out to be super helpful. So, granted not the best note app the one originally installed in probably better, but in my circumstance? Perfect the way it is. ☺️
Awesome app! I have a few suggestions.
by Josephine_Hogue_puppylover on 2016/04/20 04:18
I seriously love this app. My life is very stressful and I often need to vent out my problems and this app is the perfect way too. I absolutely love the idea about the consumer able to choose an optional passcode invade there is something in there you don't want people to know about. But I have a couple Suggestions. 1. You should have fonts. I like different types of fonts depending on my mood and you guys have only one font. You should fix this. You should also allow people to change the size and color of the words. 2. When I highlight something, it gives me options of things to do but none of them include putting my writing in italics, bold, or underlined. I'm not sure if this is because of the app or my iPod, but if it's the app, I would fix it. That is all. Please continue to make awesome games!
Great user experience. Love the timestamps
by Urdgtwdgyrd on 2017/08/06 17:43
This was a great app until I declined to write a review, after which it stopped working. Minus one star for that. So I'm writing a review in hopes that the app will start working again, because I liked it. Note to developers: when we open your apps, we are obviously busy performing a task, so it's exactly the wrong time to pop a window into our faces asking us to drop what we are doing and navigate over to the App Store to write a review. Now may I please have my app back, or do I have to search somewhere else?
Super Basic
by Boosyeg on 2019/05/30 13:16
It’s free and it works but there are absolutely no bells and whistles with this app. The best feature for me is that it can lock and I can search by date, but that’s it. Can’t even put bullet points or numbers in if you’re making a list. I would give it 5 stars if they would give us a simple text editing feature like most word type documents have to have underline, bold, bullets, etc. Otherwise, it does what it says it does. I use it nearly every day and have had no trouble with it.
Fantastic
by вℓαнвℓαн on 2018/02/21 23:43
I’ve never written a review for any app in my life, but I’ve never come across a better journal feature in my life. There are no pop up ads, and the ads that occasionally show remain in a tiny segment on the bottom of the screen and are unnoticeable. The app is simple, and brilliantly organized. There are no storage limitations and no “paid” features other than getting rid of the the tiny ads. The locking system is perfect, and the app itself is modern and maturely formatted.
Awesome diary 👌
by IRClampitt on 2016/08/09 18:23
This diary is super easy to use! I can go back and look at recent entries, change the order I see them in, and more! I totally recommend this to people who just need to let it all out. And if you want, you can just delete the entry when you're done! One thing I would add is a "recently deleted" folder, kind of like Notes, one of the default apps for iOS. But other than that, I enjoy using this every day, and it has taken away tons of stress. Thank you for this app!
Promised but not delivered
by Berezaku on 2017/03/10 17:21
The reviews were great so I had high hopes. I wanted to keep journal notes of a quick trip to London, adding some notes after the fact for a couple of the days. Somehow, notes always applied to the previous day, not the day I intended, even though I changed the date. Notes were also duplicated and when deleted, both original and duplicate were deleted! I've lost 2 days' worth of notes which my bad memory will find hard to recover. Such a shame for this simple app. Oh, I just saw that all notes were for "2016", not 2017! What's up with that? I'm glad I didn't pay for the non-ad version.
Pretty awesome
by Tearnenough on 2017/09/09 20:15
I loved how easy it was to navigate and use I also like how it self organizes the entries that you write. The only thing I wish were different is the sharing options. Instead of only being able to share one entry at a time, I would like to be able to share the days, or even the entire journal. I could send a friend all of the entries from an entire day at once instead of having to share each one individually. But really thats the only thing I would change
Wish there was more
by 22Emma44 on 2018/06/15 02:42
I love the app don’t get me wrong i have used it for 1 whole year I just wish there are a few tweaks to the app. 1- import pictures or drawing would be helpful as if you use it as a dr appointment tracker and need to keep a picture of a x Ray 2- wish you could doodle on the app itself so if someone wanted to express them selves in a drawing they could 3- a password would be really helpful because my younger brother snoops throughout my phone and I put personal stuff on this app that I don’t want him to see 4- wish you could organize your entries that you write throughout the day instead of it just making one big entry. If you add these features or even just some of them I would give this way more stars so please just add these features and have more updates periodically so new features can come out so it won’t be the same old stuff all the time and I could change it up a bit.
Love it
by Addi Chen on 2018/08/02 15:12
When I got notebook, I immediately loved the password option, the layout, and how real it felt. But, I wasn't amazed by the fact that I couldn't paste anything into my journal entry. I couldn't add a Bitmoji, or anything I had copied. If I wanted to add something from notes, I couldn't copy and paste. That annoyed me, but I still use it, and journal almost regularly. I would recommend this app to anyone, but a slight improvement on this skill would help make it everyone.
Adding some things
by Sarah tt ssw on 2016/04/25 03:16
I really like this app to write down my thoughts and feelings throughout the day. But I think there should be some changes. You should be able to insert a photo into your entry. If there is already a way to do it, I have not figured it out but I have tried lots. You should also be able to categorize your notes how you want them to. And there should be an option to change the color/font/size of the text and you should be able to hold your text too. Otherwise the app is good to write your thoughts down.
Highly Recommended || Few Suggestions
by Darla0028 on 2017/01/16 18:11
This app is very good! I normally use it for my emotions like when I'm upset because I write things down to let it out. But anyways this app it very useful for various stuff. I also recommend having an account for this app. I know it's not anything serious but soon I am transferring phones and I want to keep all the things I wrote down. Hopefully this could happen in some way. Thank you.
Thank you
by I'm_Awesome_Maria on 2016/03/12 03:47
This app was soo needed for me because I like to empty my head before I go to bed so I can get my thoughts out. I would like to keep them private because some things I think I don't want my friends to know like my crushes and the sad things going on in my life. This app is a blessing because when my friends are on my phone they like to look at like everything. I just would like to say a huge thanks to the makers.
I use it every day
by kelp forests on 2017/12/29 10:44
This is a “note” book. It is useful for inspiration notation on the spot, to record the beginnings of emerging ideas I want to expound upon later using my laptop. I went with it for the way it keeps chronological order as it is important to me to be able to see my own thought process develop and have a record of that evolution. It is about writing and not a visual app and that’s why I like it.
Very simple
by JasPeRSea967 on 2017/07/17 19:13
Very neat and tidy app. You can change the size of the text. It's really easy to put anything you need written down (much better than the memo or notes app that's already on your phone when you get it) Then only thing that's bad about this is that there should be a color changer. Change the color of the background and maybe the text too. But besides that, it's a great app.
Confusing
by MollieCat05 on 2019/06/18 15:08
I decided to get a journal or a diary to write in. I’m ten. I looked at one other app like this. Then I deleted it. I got this one. It looked confusing because it had the dates of the past two days and it had other writing in it. I didn’t know how to write in it. The app told me I could swipe to turn the page, so I tried that but it didn’t work. I think for other people it may be really easy for other people to use but for me I think this isn’t the app for me. I think I should just get manual notebook.
Very nice app
by hdroadking1955 on 2016/05/02 13:40
I had downloaded the Ark app for my journal since the offered it for free & thought I would give a try. What a piece of crap that thing was. Nothing worked like it should. I then searched for another journal & found this one. OMG - this thing is awesome. Everything works as it should. Although simple, it fits my needs to a ’T’. I would recommend this app for anyone wanting to just keep a simple journal. Thanks for a great app…..
It works for me
by nancombs on 2017/05/06 16:29
I needed something to journal in and this app works well for that. The app is easy to use and I like that. The password option is key because who wants everyone reading their innermost thoughts? Some things just need to be kept to yourself but it helps to write them down. I didn't rate it 5 stars just because I think something has to be really exceptional for that rating. That said, this app is still great. I recommend it.
Convenient and Reliable
by Kincaid Foster on 2017/12/13 19:07
I’ve been looking for a place to write down all of my thoughts but usually all of the other apps have adds posted everywhere that pop up every second you use them. This app is simply what it says it is-a useful journal for writing down your thoughts on your phone. It even has a password protected lock just Incase your journal entries are more. . . “Private”
Great For Diary
by Yelper4579006432 on 2017/10/19 12:36
It's big on privacy. Everytime you fire the app up again, even though it was just running in the background while you quickly check some stuff, it will require a password. Your contents are completely secure. There are a lot of features, but they are nicely hidden until you need it, making it an easy-to-use interface.
Great app with one suggestion

It’s organized, clean, and lockable, the three things I was looking for. I don’t love bright colors or tacky setups, so the straightforward journal style is something I enjoy. The ads on the app are small and practically unnoticeable, so it’s a plus there. My only problems with the app are the inability to type in italics, bold lettering, etcetera. I like to make my notes and scripts stand out, so italics, bold lettering, and underlined text (maybe even strikethrough) would be a nice addition.
Simple, but definitely worth it.

So I was searching everywhere for some kind of electronic journal/notebook with a passcode to right some prettyyyyy personal stuff in, but I needed the password to actually WORK instead of glitching out like all others (to hide from my parents because I'm a diddly darn angsty teen) This is a pretty old fashioned looking app, like something for the iPod I had back in 2007, but it's very convenient.
Easy way to keep track of journaling.

I used to carry a notebook but whenever I was inspired to write down a thought it was nowhere to be seen! I always have my phone on me so this is a great fit for my in the go lifestyle. Easy way to input and track journaling (for reflection, etc). Highly recommend. The ads are not a big deal but you can remove if you pay the $2. Easy money.
Pretty simple

This is the first app of this type that I've used, so I can't really say whether it's the best. It's simple to use and avoids most "built-in" formatting. Moving between pages to add to or edit a previous page is a little rough, requiring 2-3 separate operations instead of simply scrolling back or forward. I do like that today's date appears automatically. I'll use this app until a better one comes along.
Wonderful, all-purpose journal

This journal/diary app has wonderful simplicity. It can be a medium for nearly any use. Whenever you make an entry, it records the date and exact time you started the entry, which means you can make multiple entries per day. Each entry is separated by time, even if it's during the same day. The app is very organized, simple, and nice for journaling and recording thoughts. Wonderful free product!
Love it but export or backup feature neeeded

I use this app to keep track of my relationship with my boyfriend because knowing me, I would forget things I don't want to forget. I remember situations but not dates. I suggest having a way to back everything up via iCloud or an email or something so I don't lose these precious memories and dates. Thank you and keep up the good work!
