iReminisce is a journal/diary application designed to keep you focused on your thoughts and preserve your memories for years to come. With built-in features like daily photo journaling, mood settings and ratings, you will be able to quickly see how you look and feel on any given day. And with our documents storage area, instead of embedding documents and media files into the entry itself, we managed to keep distractions to a minimum when reading and writing your entries.
We've even taken the extra step of making sure you don't have to click a "save" button.
* Mood system
* Rating system
* Customizable, color-coded categories
* Documents and media management
* Easy moving of entries to different dates
* Application lock to prevent unauthorized users
* Daily photo journal, including player

iReminisce is a darn good piece of software (for simple journaling) - While iReminisce isn't the journaling program I chose for the long-term, in my opinion, it's a darn good piece of software. I worked with iReminisce off and on for a couple months—it was okay in the beginning. As I tooled along, I wanted it to do way more. iReminisce is pretty great for a simple journaling program—it's the TextEdit of journaling. Very nicely designed and very nicely implemented. Personally though, for me, it didn't have enough features. I went back to the drawing board. After (re)viewing about five or six journaling programs IN DETAIL, I ultimately chose MacJournal by Mariner, which a person can get a demo version of from the Mariner website (I then got the full version here). MacJournal is the Apple Pages and Adobe Photoshop of the journaling field, and is much more full-featured than other softwares of the journaling category—mind you—that I could evaluate—I didn't evaluate all of them, just the main ones. iReminisce is to MacJournal what TextEdit is to Apple Pages. For the "simplicity" class, I recommend iReminisce. I object to the lots of people here saying that this-or-that software is not good. I found many of the reviewers of journaling programs say things that simply are not true. I don't know who wrote some of the reviews, or why, but you really have to try out a piece of software yourself. Some of the reviews seem to have been written by kids out to make trouble; in any case, immature nitwits. If you attempt to believe EVERYONE's reviews, you'll end up not choosing anything (like happened to me). Evaluate a program YOURSELF, on a software's own merits. Believe only SOME of what you read here—in the end, rely on your own judgment. For a relatively-simple journaling program, iReminisce is a terrific choice. iReminisce is a good choice for kids. However, if you want power, MacJournal by Mariner would be more to your liking. Just so you know, I evaluated Evernote for over a year, and loathe it. I deleted everything. "Loathe" *IS* the correct word. Evernote is as underhanded and conniving as Google, in its own way. To have to be connected to the Internet all-the-time (now called 'the cloud'; in the olden days of 1960s and 1970s, called 'mainframe') is, to me, insulting [to the intelligence of a Macintosh (or even MS Windows)]. Don't fall for "the cloud"—it's a ripoff—fight back—just say "no."
Printing Capability - This is a nice app. I use it daily. However, It needs a print function and so far I have not been able to locate one. It would also be nice have it iPhone supported. Not to mention the Support Page for this app is not availble and if you email for support you never get a reply. It would also be helpful if when you select a day from the calendar it would open those days entries. **UPDATE** Still no reponse from support. I've contacted them about 4 times since I purchased this app in May it is now October. Sometimes this app just stops and you can't see any of the journalling. You have to actually close it and reopen. If you click on the date in the pictured calendar it doesn't show you what you typed on that day. You have to go to the list to see what you typed. VERY ridiculous. Wish I could get a refund.

so fustrating! - I like the idea of it, the layout of it, everything about it EXCEPT! it can't keep up with my typing. I would have typed 2 senteces before they actually appear on the screen. Makes for fixing mistakes, etc. really annoyoing. Come on! keep up!
I really like it! - This would be a 5-star application if there was a companion iPad app for it. Otherwise this is great!
Good! - This app is great. Its simple and I like being able to take a picture of myself every day to see how I change. I do wish saving your entries was more permanent though. Like maybe it should save 24 hours after it was written. I also really wish there was a way to look through all the photos.
This Is Really Cool - Reading Only 2 reviews I paid the 14.99 and love it so far. I'm keeping a hair dairy along with other thinks. Get this very nice!
I like it! - This app is awesome! I decided to buy when the price was lowered. Very creative.
