Adorable!! The characters are sooo cute and I use it all the time. I'm studying Japanese so I can read a little of what they are saying, but would be even better if they had English too. Waiting for new designs!!

▲ Customize the audio quality and duration according to your preference.

Trying to use a mobile phone as a journal can be difficult when it looks like all you are using is a notepad. That is why this diary app integrates a few more defining details that make every entry really feel like a chronicle in your life’s journey.

For starters, it can automatically jot down both the weather and the location along with the time of entry. Additionally, you can bring up a little bar that will express the entry’s overall mood. These alone already show more details about how the day was like. Pictures can also be taken and then attached directly even as you are writing things down. Voice recordings can be attached too, whether to narrate your entries or to preserve an important sound clip.

Lastly, each entry can have several tags for better searching (especially when some entries discussed a topic important to you). The result can really look like an authentic journal filled with solid details of what you have been doing, where you have been and (ultimately) who you are.

▲ Instantly record your thoughts as they come. Throw in a picture as well!

▲ You can also include your moods and give each entry a bit of personality.

Contrary to their names, notepad apps often take a few seconds to find and then another few more to open up and browse. Those seconds, however, can make a crucial difference when jotting down points from meetings or other important discussions. However, here is at least one notepad app that focuses heavily on speed and accessibility.

It has standard organization features like color coding and custom labels. These notes can be turned into scheduled reminders as well. However, the notes you make can also be placed directly on the drop-down menu as a permanent shortcut! You can also access this virtual notepad in the same way. There is even an additional encryption feature, allowing you take down more confidential information without the risk of someone opening these notes by accident. Now, your phone can really start feeling like a tool for writing down vital details in quick meetings and presentations.

▲ Organize notes via color coding, custom labels and more.

▲ Pin them directly onto the drop-down menu and review them instantly.
