Diarium

Windows' best-rated journaling app arrives on Android

You always wanted to write a diary but your laziness said "no"? This app might be for you! It can include lots of information into your entries automatically, like pictures, walked steps, weather or social media activity. You can password-protect the app and sync the data with the corresponding Windows app.

This is a truly awesome app; anyone reading this don't think twice, just download it. You won't regret it.

This is for Android/Windows versions.

I'd like to know what size videos need to be. I'd like some formatting options within my entries, I'd like to see a list of my tags to select from, I'd like all of my platforms to talk and to tell me how to talk to them. I lost several days of diary and wasn't able to import diary entries from the one I was using prior to. d Notes, surprisingly, had much more flexibility, but didn't do the things, Diarium can - calendar entry and search, for example.

Pros:

easy photo, voice recorder, video (my main need) entry

Cons:

little to no help , syncing (android/Windows) unclear can wipe out whole diary (I did), and no password recovery or diary will be deleted.

Thanks for your review and sorry for my late response. Improving the sync will be my main goal for 2019, but I am wondering how you cleared your diary, this certainly shouldnt happen - maybe you can write me a short mail explaining how it happened. Password recovery is not possible as it isnt being sent to any server before (none of your diarys data, including the password, will ever be sent on my server). There is a clear warning (in red color πŸ˜‰) that resetting the password will result in a diary reset as well. There is not video size restriction, but the videos are being compressed when attaching so they need less storage space. There is a tags overview page inside the app already. I dont fully understand what you mean with the talking platforms, maybe you can elaborate? Feel free to ask all your questions via mail, I will try to answer them all!

I have used Diarium for about eight months until my laptop crashed about two weeks ago. When I restored Windows 10 with my recovery drive all of my eight months of journal disappeared, and could not find the database in the synced OneDrive or FileHistory. The Diarium saved my journals and I was always able to retrieve the journals written in previous days. Diarium also daily notifies me of writing the journal but Diarim has never notified me of saving the journal written before closing the app as MS Word or Excel does. I like the utility of Diarium but I am just afraid I may lose my future journal again.

@dong_choi Happy you were able to recover your journal contents. Diarium offers various ways to ensure your diary won't get lost. You can use the auto-sync which automatically backs up the journal in a cloud service of your choice. You can also manually backup the database in the app settings. Another alternative is the Word export, which allows you to have a backup in a human-readable format.

It's a really great application and software as well, but having to get separate licenses for different platforms is really expensive.

@deleted-2208743 Happy you like the app. I thought the price is fair considering it is a one-time payment and no subscription like competitor apps (e.g. Day One, which costs $3 a month). What would be a fair price for the app in your opinion?

Works fine on Android. Installed it on Windows cause I want it cross device and it's a disaster. First off, no sync with Android. No clou which account it uses, cause it's not shown. Guess the problem is wrong account. Then tried to export from Android just to get started. Fine, but Import impossible. The file is there on Onedrive but the import can't find it. Considering alternatives just to get some work done. This is totally unacceptable.

@sofo First, I want to apologize for the very late response! You can see what account the sync is using in the app settings, below the "reset login credentials" button. The import function only accepts ".diary" files that you can create with the backup button in the app settings. The sync files can only be used for sync, not for the manual import. I don't know why you didn't reach out to me via mail as I would have answered you within hours. Please feel free to still do so, I would love to help!
