I want to buy this because the concept is interesting but people are reporting the app is pretty buggy in the reviews. Is there an update coming out soon to address the issues?
@andygcook agree - apps that haven't been updated in a year, or aren't updated regularly, make me significantly less likely to pay for them
@ryanstenson @andygcook Thank you both for bringing this up. To be honest, the app update was a thorn for a for quite a while because the previous development has some fundamental issues data management. We finally came by someone who was confident in working through these issues and we'll have an update this month for it. We're in beta-testing right now with 800+ users from our audience. Please let me know if either of you are interested in beta-testing as well and I'll be happy to send the invitation over. We should have a seamless navigation very soon.
@andygcook As UJ mentioned we are in the midst of bringing a new update. Also, we are always open to feedback, especially from devs how to make it better.
@ujramdas I'd love to be a beta tester! I journal everyday just by writing a clunky entry into my Google calendar but have been looking for something I can add images of my daily yoga poses into as well. I'd be happy to intro the app to the greater Instagram yoga community πŸ˜‰πŸ‘
@andygcook I'm in the same boat. I like the idea but the lukewarm reviews scared me away. If it had stronger reviews I would've purchased the app. I'm going to wait for the next version now
A great app which had a fantastic launch and has been growing in popularity ever since. I know the co-founders UJ Ramdas and Alex Ikonn (I've suggested as makers). We worked together last year trying to fix up a few issues in the app. The app is popular because of the 5 Minute Journal book. Anyway, its good to finally see this on Product Hunt. Hopefully, UJ and Alex can swing by to say hello.
@paul_s_kemp Paul - great to see you on here! Thanks for suggesting us as makers and your help. We're actually testing the (major) update with 800+ beta testers from our audience. We want to make sure things run smoothly before release. It'll be here in July.
This is way better than the 6-minute Journal app
What's the reason it's not available internationally? Was looking forward to trying it out
I just recently bought 5 more copies of the 5 Minute Journal book and I have to say I love it. I always loved the element of taking the time and actually writing the stuff down, but when I'm traveling I used the app. It's beautifully designed and I love the option of adding a photo to a certain day. Makes the whole experience more memorable. Besides that, Alex and UJ are really cool people and very inspiring.
@freshfey Feyyaz - thanks for the kind words! Glad to connect with you on here and feel free to let me know any ideas/feedback you have in the future.
@freshfey Thank you so much for the support Feyyaz!
