Overly complicated. Their way of encrypting things is a hassle. You need to put the password in twice and then a hint and it's locked and encrypted. When you want to write down a thought, long or short, stick your password in and it's unlocked and unencrypted. So you write your thought and it auto syncs unencrypted and stays that way untill you stick a password in twice and a hint and lock it again. I would love my data to be encrypted on my phone and nothing reaches their servers that isn't encrypted.
Great app for journaling. I LOVE the idea of an internet journal, but security was a concern. Not with Penzu. I love that it syncs quickly and you can customize text, add long quotes and pictures. It is so much easier and calmer to type on a computer than keep a journal open and in a comfortable position. Penzu I give 5 stars, but the app loses a star for two things that aren't there. 1) timestamp. This is a big one for me. You can add a timestamp on the computer so I can say, write at 8am and say so. Then write again at 4pm and add an afternoon paragraph to the same entry. This is not available on the app. 2) you can't start writing with a prompt in the app.
It's awesome. The app is easy enough to use. And the bonus of being able to lock my writings is even better. However to pay to have more than one journal is something that personally bothers me. But 4 stars still👍
Please make it user friendly and have more features. I cannot even select a number of entries to share/delete. Too simplistic and cant do much either. Dunno why i hv hundreds of empty entries repetitively and now pissed off coz i have to select one by one to delete. So annoying
I love being able to write in my journals whenever I want too. No more carrying an actual journal on me that can be lost or damaged. So easy to use and journals can be locked to keep private.
Account problem It wasn't using penzu for a while, came back, note can't login (renew your account), can't sign up (your email was used before), and there is no button renew your account
