Version 1.0.10
Review by Al I. D.

App is currently great, just a couple things I would like to see - This is the cleanest nicest diary app I have seen. I love that you use markdown but format it in a great looking way even while writing. And as others have said, the simplicity of the app realy makes it perfect for journaling. The thing I was looking for forever was the ability to specify a template for new entries, so thanks so much for that! There are just a couple missing things that are keeping me from switching over: 1) I love this app, but I can’t bring myself to commit to it if it doesn’t have the ability to export to a format that other apps use. I am worried that I’ll want to switch in a month or two and don’t want to go through manually transfering every day’s journal. 2) I write entries right before I go to bed, which is sometimes after midnight. Right now, I don’t see a way to change the date on an existing entry, I only see a way to create a brand new entry. This isn’t a huge deal, but it would just be a nice little convinience to be able to click the date and select a new one.

Review by Nulit_

Beware before you buy - You are locked into having one journal entry per day. This is also true on the full version. You can have many journals (notebooks) but only one entry in each journal per day. There is no "plus" button, nor there is a "New Entry" on the File menu.
