This is the BEST app I've come across for not only journal writing, but also for notes, blogging, lists, articles, and books. The many options available for appearance and feel make it VERY user friendly for someone like me who needs an app that is simple to use but sophisticated in results! It's important to me having something that is functional AND aesthetically pleasing! Better Diary gives me BOTH!!

I cannot sign in. It always showed error: Sign in failed. Try again later. I tried to re-install the app, but I still got the same error. I don't know what is wrong. I need to log-in and retrieve my entries. I hope this can get sorted out.

I half like it, it's almost got what I'm looking for which is really saying something considering the rest of the diary/journals in the Playstore. And I'd pay the $9 lifetime subscription if only it would access ALL OF MY GALLERY instead of just the handful of photos it does. Let me know if that changes. Till then I'm still looking and hoping I find a complete diary app.
