For anyone who loves writing journals, the most difficult part is regularly maintaining them. Due to time constraints, we often end up missing out on capturing several great life moments. With smartphones becoming the central part of our lives, journals have also gone digital. There are numerous apps available that let you write a journal on the go and at the same time offer a tonne of other features. One such app that could be a perfect solution for your daily journal writing is the Journey app.
How it works:- Getting started on Journey is very easy. No sooner than you launch the app, it seeks your permission to access one of your existing Google Accounts (already in use on your device) in order to sync the data using Google Drive. This feature enables you to access your Journey diary across all your devices, including PC and Mac (via Journey’s website). There’s no complicated setup involved, just sign in and you’re good to go.
The app’s easy-to-use user interface makes it incredibly easy to jot down a quick thought or summarize a whole day by tagging specific locations, photos, video clips, and much more to your entries. You can edit your entries any time. However, there are a couple of limitations; for instance, you can either include one video or maximum four photos per entry.
The app offers some exciting features that enhance the overall experience of journaling the moments on the go. It automatically retrieves information such as the location, weather, and motion activity, and it neatly organizes your entries in a calendar view. You can also add tags to your entries, which also means you can easily search for entries using those tags. Not just that, you can also browse your journal by photo, video clip, and location. Moreover, the app allows you to publish your entry on social media, or take a print of it.
The ‘Settings’ tab allows you to set daily reminders, and choose the font type, font size, line spacing, and other options to your liking. You can also password-protect your journal with a PIN, so no one else can “accidentally” look at your private thoughts. It appears that the developers have taken a lot of efforts in making the app user-friendly.
What’s more, you can upgrade the app via one-time in-app purchase (INR 230 approx.) to unlock premium features such as markdown preview and syntax highlighting, dashboard (it lists recently used devices with date and time), DOCX export, export/backup/print multiple entries, night mode, throwback (a sudden reminder of old memories), remove watermark, and integration with Google Fit.
To sum up, if you’ve been looking for the best journaling app on Android, your search is over. Journey is a beautiful app to record your life moments anytime, anywhere. It is your digital diary with advanced features.
