What app do you use to write private journals?

I am looking for an app which has built-in calendar + security lock + sleek editor + clean design.

    Evernote

    Note taking gets even simpler

    I use Evernote for taking notes on a daily basis. It does have a sleek editor, a clean design and you can integrate it with google calendar and even Amazon Alexa (using an IFTTT). I'm not sure about the security lock aspect though, but I think you can work around that by not using an SSO and instead logging in and logging out each time you use the app.

      Absolutely love Evernote. Use it for work and personal use and that is easy with the ability to make notebooks. Tags are super helpful as is annotating a document or editing a picture with Skitch. Makes my life easier and more organized!

    Penzu is a great private journal keeper that allows you to edit easily, has a clean design and has a double password protection functionality.

    Bear

    A beautiful, flexible writing app for notes and prose

    Bear is really minimal and feels very personal. I like it,

      I searched high and low for a replacement to the Mac OS default Notes app, which is incredibly limited in functionality and insufficient for my needs. I had one twist - I needed to find a note taking app for Mac that did not sync or store notes in the cloud. Bear does just that and it happens to be great. I really enjoy the hashtag categorization system and ability to have multiple tags on a note. It's a twist on Evernote style tags, but with a lighter-weight style of notebook organization and management.

      Overall I love Bear. It is beautifully designed. I love the simple interface and the ability to tag notes is amazing. It makes searching for old notes so much easier. This is better than Apple Notes and I love it so much more than Evernote.
