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.
Love the cross-device syncing and the formatting options. Other journaling Apps I tried fall short in formatting options for my journal entries. To many that won't matter, but it's a choice criterion for me. Overall a good app that works smoothly!
It was great INITIALLY that I upgraded to PRO version. However I faced continous syncing issues which then resulted in the creation of "Unclaimed Entries" journal of unsync posts. I also lost my pics before and the support team were unable to retrieve it. That is, after multiple times of bugging them to respond. Looking for a better journalling app. :(
If there was zero star, I'll give this app. After overpriced pro version expired, this app will lock you out. Sign In will request you renew, and there is no renew button. Sign Up will tell you email already in use. Then they will be harrassing you on email to pay up or lose everything. I do not know who programed this thing. Don't say you were not warned.
I love penzu. For the first time I have a journal that I can write in honestly without having to censor myself. When I was blogging, I was always afraid of somebody misinterpreting what I said so I kept editing myself, which then didn't didn't reflect what I honestly thought. I have a range of journals in penzu, each for a different purpose and they are very user-friendly. I do need to find out how to let people read entries if I want them to. Thank you penzu
I've been using this app for a long time. Within the last few months, when I type it's really frustrating. I have a Samsung Galaxy. If I type a word.. then backspace.. suddenly it starts saving words in my "learned words". So if I don't type the word exactly as it should be it doesn't autocorrect as it should. So for example, if I type "metoo" and I forgot the space.. I start to backspace and it saves the word "metoo" as a learned work. So the next time I go to type "me" it comes up as "metoo" and I have to unsave it from learned words. This only happens in the app. When I type a text msg or even on here it's fine. But in the app it just saves random things as words. I'm not sure what to do. Maybe this app doesn't work well with Samsung?
