Lifecraft is a fun and engaging journal. Use it to tell your story, capture your thoughts, and discover your dreams. Lifecraft works its magic by encouraging you to self-reflect and focus on your life. In short, Lifecraft will help you reinvent yourself, conquer your setbacks, leap tall buildings in a single bound, and live boldly!

Lifecraft is available for your iPhone, iPad and Mac.

Lifecraft seamlessly syncs your information between all of your devices using Apple's iCloud technology. This means that you don't have to trust your private information to yet another 3rd party. Oh, and did we mention that it's really fast!

See your emotional life in vivid color. The more you use Lifecraft, the more you’ll notice patterns in your emotions which will provide valuable insights and lead to a happier life. The built-in Emotion Tree and Emotion Calendar show you everything you need to know.

Zee is an intelligent assistant who’s always available to help you write in your journal and stay motivated. Zee greets you with a smile, offers daily writing prompts, starts timers for you, and can even tell you a joke when you need a laugh.

Create as many journals as you want for different areas of your life like family, school, and work. Organize your journals hierarchically into multiple levels of sub-journals.

Your information is always encrypted whether it's stored on your computer, in the cloud, or on its way to the cloud. We've got you covered with industry-standard AES-256 encryption.

Some experiences are bigger than words. That’s why you can attach any number of photos and videos to your entries (free version is limited to one per entry).

Tags & Favorites provide another way to categorize your entries. The best thing about tags is you can use them to filter your entries.

Choosing fonts and colors is effortless. Instead of having to remember obscure text formatting codes (like Markdown syntax), Lifecraft offers familiar font controls that make it easy to choose your style. Plus, you can insert tables and lists into your entries.

See the weather forecast for the next week or for any of your past entries. So ten years from now, you can look back and see that it rained on your birthday party.

Your location is automatically captured when you create a journal entry. Now you can remember where you celebrated Valentine's Day for the past decade.

Beautiful app, worth the money - A+ 10/10 app. Someone below commented on app developers getting too greedy - laughable. We’re all writing these reviews from $1000-2500 dollar computers, yet so many refuse to spend $1.49 for its software? Alternatively, you dont charge a subscription, a year later you find yourself rellying on that app every day, and then suddenly Apple buys the app - and now you can’t relly on it (i.e workflow) so you stop using it becuase $1 was too much to keep the App sepperate from Apple. Oie. Anyways great job guys. I primarly downloaded this in hopes it would just be a great notebook app, and not be too heavy handed about the journaling aspect. I just want something that’s not Evernote or Onenote, but has folder trees, and all the things you guys built perfectly - I just dont want a rainbow sidebar cross-platform asking me to tag my notes on Ableton Live with my emotions. It’s a shame all the good developers go so heavy on the journaling, mood, and temperature recording, Someone please take note of this app, and just build it without all the emotional elements - please?

Buyer beware - This is a monthly subscription-based app. Personally, I will never purchase an app that I would have to pay for every month, but that’s my opinion. Developers are starting to get way to greedy.

Love this app! - Lifecraft makes me want to write every day. Even if I skip sometimes, I remember after a few days and come back to it because I look forward to interacting with it. The interface is just right, not extremely simple, but not overly complicated. The colors are so much fun! AND the developers will listen to your feedback. I’ve interacted with them when it first came out and they’re very open and eager to improve. If you have any new ideas, feel free to contact them. They’re extremely helpful with any issues you may be having as well. I don’t usually compare products openly, but I’m going to say it. I like Lifecraft better than DayOne! 6/5 stars.
