4 Reasons Why Everyday Timeline is Better than Diaro 3

Okay, so a month or two ago I made the announcement that I would be switching my daily journaling from Diaro 3 to Everyday Timeline- both for Android. I had been using Diaro 3 for about 7 months and had loved it but I had always wanted to try Everyday Timeline as my daily go-to for about a year so as soon as it came to Android I jumped on board. As always, because I am in control of my data I can switch the journals I use daily when ever I please. If you don’t know what I am talking about, please download the free mini-guide you see on...

Thoughtree for iPhone (iOS 7)

You may have read on EasyJournaling.com, our mid-summer review of Thoughtree (the Beta) but I’m pleased to reevaluate my recommendation now that it has hit the iTunes App Store, all tweaked and tuned for iOS 7 and free for the taking. Developer, Jude Abeler, offers journalers his “personal thought network” for practical productivity, with a classic user interface in black, white and green. Its charming tree logo reminded me of my children’s’ book collection, which included The Giving Tree. Both are delightfully...

Orange Diary – More than just a Diary/Journal

Orange Diary was quite a delight to use.  One could call it the Swiss Army Knife of diary and journaling apps.  Not only can it do many different things, but it can do them well.  It is a great tool for someone who, in addition to making journal entries, has projects and task to keep track of.  For instance you can add an entry that is a project and within the entry you can add a task list.  This will show up in your timeline and you can choose a specific icon of your liking to identify your non journal entries.  In...

Can Journaling Make You A Better Person?

When it comes to journaling, it’s more about the practice than it is about what’s being written. Creating a writing routine can make you a better person.

Journaling regularly allows you to have a better connection with yourself. You don’t have to censor your thoughts or your words. You can be crass, critical, caring, careful, calculated, and confident all at once. You can relive the best moments of your life...

Is Narrato for iPhone the ‘Easiest Way To Journal’? Maybe Someday!

Narrato’s user-interface is simple, uncluttered black text on white background. Don’t look for too much color from here on though. Set up your account with an email and a password for security. I know, its pretty light-weight, but it is security. On the first entry page, pressing the down arrow in the left corner opens the main menu consisting of user-customizable icons. Day-by-Day (calendar) opens to your on-going journal entries with the most recent up top (thank you!). It also shows where you are (town), the temp plus...

6 Places To Mine Material For Future Journal Entries (Journal Prompts)

Journaling causes you to push your edges. It has you exploring the confines of your comfort zone. It makes you question things and draw conclusions. It gives insight about the past, identifies areas of improvement, and helps your dreams take flight. With that being said, if you journal on a regular basis, you’ll find times where you need inspiration for your posts. The creative well may have run dry and you look for things outside yourself to fill it once again. If that is the case, and it certainly will be from time to time, there are a...

David RM’s ‘The Journal’ for PC Goes Beyond the Basics

There are any number of journaling programs and software available, and I’ve probably tried only a few compared to what’s out there. One program that continues to meet my needs best is DavidRM Software’s, The Journal. This was one of the more comprehensive and well planned journaling programs I researched, tried — and purchased. Unfortunately, it’s only for Windows, and that can be a major drawback for some. Since I spend so much time in front of my Windows computer, though, it served my purposes...

Thoughtree for iPhone Review

Thoughtree for iPhone Review

Our introduction to “Thoughtree” was a beta version of a “personal thought network”, described by its award winning developer, Jude Abeler, as “drop dead simple”. That is an understatement. In its concept, Thoughtree is decidedly uncomplicated, and yet visually appealing. Its black and white design is the very essence of “simple”. Each new entry is “tagged” by the user with one of thirteen clip-art style symbols, which are called categories. So a user might, for example, select the heart symbol for...
