- Day One is awesome about sending great prompts that will help you write, even on days when you've got "journaler's block". Plus, with all of it's options for sharing and privacy as well as syncing between devices, it's an obvious choice.As they describe themselves: Day One is a journaling app for the iPhone, iPad and Mac. Record life as you live it. From once-in-a-lifetime events to everyday moments, Day One’s elegant interface makes journaling your life a simple pleasure. It is an easy to use journaling app that syncs across multiple devices. Recent updates includes ways automate parts of it, although not as fully automated as MementoApp (https://momentoapp.com/) but that only works on your iPhone. If you're looking for a quick and easy way to privately document your life this is the way to go.
- Its super easy to write with and publish, that is of you want a public journal of course. Otherwise a pen and paper is as cathartic as #%@×I use Medium almost everyday. If you want to improve on your writing skills, get feedback about your thoughts and ideas, Medium is the place to be.
I've loved Medium for a long time - in fact I still hear from people (other authors wanting to link/interview me, prospective clients, etc.) every singe month directly from my very first Medium post.
Medium on mobile is...so-so. Much better than the original app, but the nature of a content network means there's a ton to fit on a small screen's UX.
My only real issue with the app is the writing interface (which should be Medium's strongest point if the website is any indication). It's reminiscent of the beloved Medium writing interface, but some of the features
I've used many blog editors out there, and none has proven to be as easy and user friendly as Medium.
- This isn't like the other journals. Every day this service calls your phone, records 60 seconds of your "audible journal", and stores it online. Sitting down to write a journal takes more time and effort.
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!
Evernote is a platform that allows you to organize, store, share and then search your information. Evernote impacts a business's productivity by streamlining the collection and distribution of critical information by enhancing its retrieval. Evernote's gives your business enhanced control of the information you own or information already collected by your employees. It's your business. It's your information.
Its a great tool for starters, For teams I do not recommend. there are lots of apps that do the same, even google docs is more intelligible when collaborating and working with. But we already have OneNote, Evernote, Word Online, with lots of features way ahead Paper.
Use Paper to manage technical stuff and my team, and love it. Just the right number of features, document crosslinking and image embedding fits my needs exactly, and works for quick notes or longer documents.
- I have recently made Remember Your Days. It sends you an SMS 5 minutes before you sleep with a link to write about your day and setup your next day. You can always view other days. Costs $5 per month. Working on adding more options to add photos etc.
- I have a workflow rather than one tool. I start the day by free writing 750 words of "morning pages" (google Julia Cameron if you want to know more) on ilys. It sounds strange but the inability to see your writing as you type, and not being allowed to backspace means that you are more likely to write honestly and with energy. I really recommend trying it before dismissing such an eccentric approach. You can then edit what you've written on the site itself--which is private. I then copy and past my entries into DayOne which is by far the best journaling app I have found.
- Love OneNote for its multi-device syncing and *free*. The key to journaling every day is making it achievable and frictionless. I've struggled over the last few years to journal and finally hit my groove by: - Writing for just 5 minutes. By time my timer goes off I'm usually "flow"ing and sometimes run over for the fun of it. - Write about anything. I describe where I am, what I'm feeling about the day, what I did last night, what I ate...anything. - Being comfortable writing wherever I am (phone on subway, mac at office, writing on paper while traveling and photographing) - Using a shortcut (OneNote, Android) to quick launch a new note in your journal notebook. - Use the date and time as the title and sort. Grouping years or months as sections of the notebook. The best part of doing this is reading through every entry every 3 months. Eventually you'll be able to look back 1 year ago, 5 years ago...
- Colin McDonnell made this productThe perfect journaling tool for people who have trouble sticking with it. I built JournalJerk because I'd never managed to stay motivated and journaling for more than a week 😛 With JournalJerk you get a daily reminder email that you simply reply to with your entry. You also set a weekly goal, which you are...er...financially incentivized to meet. Ok, yeah, you get fined if you fail.
