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.
