Good so far. I'm extremely picky. I tested like 10 other journal apps before I settled on this one. That's not saying much though, because journaling is so personal. This app is exactly what I need. Voice recording, just enough features without being too many, most importantly, the font is big enough for me to see without having to use accessibility features. I'm legally blind, so that was a deal breaker with some other apps that I was considering.

Hi Diana, Thank you for your feedback! I'm the app designer and I am so happy you find it useful. I personally also prefer apps with bigger font, and that's why I designed it this way, with lots of white space too. I hope it feels calm and uncluttered. 🌟

It's just a pretty audio recorder. Sure it works, but could get the same thing from any other recorder. On top of that, I can't access the audio files, so it's worse than a recording app. It only lets you share files through links, which don't seem to work. Overall, I'd say it gave me more anxiety trying to fix the stupid problems it caused, than it helped work through other anxiety.

I was looking for a change of pace from the usual "write in a journal for a bit, then ditch it" mentality, and decided to look for an audio diary to keep. To be quite honest, i downloaded it for its higher rating, and now that i have it, i can genuinely see why it was so well-liked. Its very simplistic in the sense that anyone can use it. The interface is also really well done, thoug, again, there are still some other features that could only make it better - Nikolay
