About this app

Journalistic is a micro journaling app with a focus on a clean and minimalistic writing experience. It uses the established bullet journal format, making it approachable for beginners and highly efficient for experienced diarists.

The ultimate goal of a micro journal is to help you focus on what truly matters in your life and to provide a place where you can write down and organize all the things that occupy your mind.

Track activities and interactions

Simply use Twitter syntax to tag #activities and mention @people in your daily entries. Journalistic automatically compiles timelines, statistics, and insights for them and helps you find things easily. Tags and mentions are private, only you can see them.

Dreams

Dreams are a window into our subconscious mind. Journalistic has a dream journal built right in so that you can attach details about last night's adventures to your daily log.

Notes

Create notes to complement your journal entries, e.g. weekly-/monthly-/annual recaps, reflections, "lessons learned", thought experiments, etc. You can also attach notes directly to your entries to elaborate on specific topics or events.

Wisdom

Collect shower thoughts, mind-blowing facts, insightful quotes, and excerpts from good books and use them as a source of wisdom and inspiration.

Ideas

Save all your ideas in a convenient list, elaborate on them, make plans, and work out potential solutions.

Insights

While you write and go about your day, Journalistic crunches data automatically in the background and compiles useful insights for you, like "How many words do I write per day?", "When was my last skiing day?", "When did I first meet Helena?".

Love this app!! 🔥💪👏 I hated journaling basically my whole life, but I did a lot of research and thinking about why and found this. The aesthetic is so beautiful and the features are really well built and match how I think. It's really nice that I can just write and then it organizes everything with really cool insights and amazing UI. It's minimalist, but also powerful! The only thing I'm worried about is that the dev work may have stopped cuz their update log was last updated Feb 9 2023.

Thanks for the review Ben 🙏🏽 There is currently a little pause in development (maintenance only) because it is blocked by a few bigger issues that I have to resolve. I hope to resume active development at some point though.

I'm absolutely loving the app so far! It's cleanly designed, and is a fresh take on journaling that I've needed. Though, I've had some bugs every now and then. Such as when I swipe [the side of my phone] to go back, sometimes it leaves the app instead of going to the previous page. And I would love to see a secret entry option. One that would just display "[Secret Note]", and would need to be opened by pin or fingerprint. Maybe these could also all be found in a "vault" of sorts. Keep it up!

It's incredible. I love nano-journaling and the developers definitely found a way to cater to users like me. I used to go to sites like Twitter for storing my short thoughts, but this app has a lot more features. Also, could I suggest an Add Image/Video/File/Voice Recording feature? I know it's expensive, so perhaps it could be connected to a file-sharing account instead of stored on Journalistic? Thank you for creating this application.
